GG's Axe-FX Settings
For the many thousands of you that have watched or purchased Guthrie Govan's 'The Late Night Sessions 2' series then you will most probably have noticed that he is using the incredible Fractal Audio Systems Axe-FX II throughout.
Now, we imagine that many of you would be thinking just how we got those incredible sounds out of Guthrie's guitar. Of course, the player helps....but, due to the power of this incredible unit we took a few of the simplest factory presets and modified each of them with just one basic tweak - i.e. removing all the reverb and delay so that we would have the option of adding those effects separately (with outboard gear or plugins) which we did for the final mixes. Just a touch of delay and reverb was all that was required. So, here are the factory presets used for each track:
East City Central Lights - Friedman HBE
The Open Highway - Friedman HBE
Seal The Feel - Plexi Treble
The Best of Times - USA Lead
Time to Let Her Go - Class A 15Watts TB
We hope to get the SysEx files for Axe FX customers who have both the new package download and an Axe-FX II in the near future, so keep an eyes out on the newlsetters for this. And for those that have not yet got their copy of the Late Night Sessions 2...what are you waiting for?!?
