    Still mightily impressed by this plugin. I trialled Helix Native again, which I got to sound good with some tweaking, and then switched back to Reaxis and the tone/feel was just instantly better. Well done, guys :cheers:

    If I could cheekily make a request, I'd absolutely love to see a Recto model from you guys.

    We heard Recto requests for quite some time. We keep it in mind! Probably for the next product it will make sense to do something different (as we've just released a Mesa sim), but who know what will happen.


    By the way, in case someone wants to grab Reaxis (or Spark/U530) with a discount - we are running a Valentine sale right now! You can see sale prices at www.mercuriall.com. Thanks!

    Hopefully I get my tax return in before the sale is over. Just tried the Spark last night and was super impressed by it.

    Sounds pretty darn good! Maybe just a little less distortion would be ideal to my taste. But who am I to judge =)

    While we're talking Reaxis... here is my current test mix I'm working on. It's early and I'm a little anxious about how the bass will come across as my standard monitors are kaput. For what it's worth, I'm doing my bass tone with Spark. All guitars are dual tracked instead of quad tracked.

    Hahaha I've gotta agree on the loudness. Quite literally copypasta'd my mastering configuration I used on another far more quiet sounding song (Demon Valley). I didn't realize that by using Spark for my bass tone this time, it would be far more easy to reign in and not have my sub frequencies being polluted. So by the time it hit my mastering chain which was configured during a time I was using Fabfilter Saturn for my sub bass... I guess all the compression allowed everything to go much louder than expected. Now I'm not even doubling the bass track. Just one track using Spark and that's it. You guys might seriously want to consider marketing Spark more to the bass playing crowd because right now I'm pretty thrilled with what I'm getting.

    Overall, I'm feeling really happy with the guitar tone that Reaxis is giving me. I didn't have to do much post EQ either. Just high passed the sub frequencies and a little cut in the 130Hz range and that was it. Started with your smooth Mark IV preset and tweaked it to my liking. No mix voodoo trickery required on my end.

    I was looking at the prices a few days ago and almost bought ReAxis. Came back to it and the price is higher than before when it was $69 for existing customers. Will keep on looking at it.

    What kind of update is coming?

    Hmmmmm. The lowest possible price now is for existing customers, yeah. HINT: pretty cool solution for getting instant notifications about site changes - https://visualping.io/

    Can't say yet what exactly will be in the update =) But it will be a nice one! More news as soon as everything is confirmed.

    Hi,

    I've made a video of the Reaxis plugin today. I really love it !

    Except NadIR from Ignite Amps for some Ownhammer IR, it's exclusively Reaxis.
    It's raw, no post processing at all and made in one shot.

    Here's my take on Battery with Re-Axis. Really love the sounds of it. Actually I haven't dialed in about anything else but a Metallica setting.

    As usual, I use ReValver 4 as host on Re-Axis, too. Here ReValver takes care of noise gate, TS clone and some post EQ.

    Had to stop right before the solo section, so this is a WIP version. That damn chorus drives me nuts with the 5/4 signature.
    Anyway, treat me well for I started playing this song yesterday decently for the first time. My poor picking hand :D

    Here it is. Well, the rhythm part is finished and the lead parts were recorded just to be there.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/gdoz52pqhxwer6q/Battery-Full.mp3?dl=0

    Re-Axis as rhythm tracks and U530 as lead.

    Really love all your stuff.

    How about an ADA MP-1 emuloation or Gallien Krueger 250ML emulation? Everyone of us 80's metal diggers would love 'em!

    Nicely done! I felt like my right hand gets stiff, lol. Those triplets =)

    ADA MP-1/Gallien Krueger 250ML - not realistic, sorry. At least in the short term. We have to choose amps very carefully, as our development cycle is very long = only the most commonly desired amps are priority right now. If we release, for example, Gallien Krueger 250ML - which IS respected by certain people, but is not commonly desired by nowadays buyers - the sales momentum will be lost and things may get very ugly for us. We first want to establish a good "base" of commonly known/desired amps and then venture into the more exotic territory.

    Yes, I understand. GK 250ML was amazing. Not the amp sounds itself but the chorus/echo/compression.
