    I do, but I use a lot of layering and prefer to hold off on printing until I'm sure all the parts are locked in composition-wise. The print can always be unwound, but no one like extra steps in a workflow, me especially.

    That's really cool that you can load and save the actual amp presets!

    I am really happy with how this thing came out. As a long-time Triaxis / 2:90 user, I am just amazed they got it this right. I had a few minutes on Friday to put a quick clip together, and this sounds nearly exactly like a TriAxis should sound:

    Nice man! Grab those presets, there are like 9 zip files of them. Chuck up a clip and some thoughts.

    I think I'll do a video of me playing around with it for the first time and we'll see what happens ! :D

    This is a phenomenal plugin. The sound is very convincing and that combined with the included features makes this one of the best amp sims out there currently. Only thing I miss is a tuner and stand alone operations!

    Just tried the demo. This sounds amazing. I think it may be the best sounding VST amp sim I've ever tried, and I've tried a lot. It rivals my Helix. I wish I wasn't broke.

    worth getting? I’m on the fence. I just got TSE X50 so I would like another quality sounding sim

    I think the one pack you should have for sure is Thermionik from Kazrog.

    I bought both Spark and U530. Really good. I build patches inside ReValver 4 as host and it works really well.

    if you like Mesa tones then I would definitely get it. Thermionik is a cheaper alternative that still sounds great. I give a slight edge to ReAxis though.

    If you’re a Mesa guy it’s a no brainer. I have Spark and the U530 and this is up there with those.

    Plus 600 or whatever presets available from the web for actual TriAxis amps is awesome.

    Thanks guys. I will probably pick it up when I get some more money. What are the best Peavey sounds out there right now?

    TSE X50 2.4 is really Peavey like, it feels good, and knobs act quite the same way as the real thing. ReValver 4 is another, but I had some problems with it, while others had really good tones out of it.

    That sounded so metalcore (in a good way)! Nicely done!

    Yeah my defaults got erased too. Frustrated... I'm sure they are on the disk somewhere but once you load an external bank good luck finding the originals ever again. The newly loaded bank persists across DAWs too.... You can't even reinstall it because it has the world's most primitive installation/reinstallation procedure (copy to a shortcutted system folder, any preferences etc are going to still be there) only rewrites vst but none of the files and I didn't want to reactivate because they only allow you to activate the plugin five times (also bogus, IMHO).

    I got aruound it by loading it on a second machine that I had already planned to use an activation on and then export the defaults but no obvious factory reset is pretty bad IMHO. I was so excited to try the loading feature that I had not checked out all the defaults so this was obnoxious. Mercuriall should have anticipated this need during their beta testing; I certainly expected to be able to easily restore th edefaults rather than this convoluted process that potentially burns one of your precious activations.

    All that said, the plugin is absolutely excellent and the Triaxis load feature IS WAY COOL. This was just a pain. I would classify it as a bug, TBH.
