I've personally have been using positive grid for a while and I'm pretty happy with it. Apparently there's the new amp sim called Neural DSP which supposedly should be better than Axe-fx and kemper. Has anybody happened to have a go with that one? So far I just know it looks pretty slick

    The interface is incredible. I love that. Tonally, I'd have to hear it, to actually play with the tones and feel it. Now, my AxeFX II XL+ is two revs back on hardware and probably a dozen back on firmware, and Cliff at Fractal is working on ANOTHER new ground-up rebuild of the amp firmware for the III and higher, so I doubt this will be BETTER than current AxeFX stuff, but we're getting to a point where that matters less and less to us mere mortals, and it becomes all about ease of use.

    This may do it.

    At $1600 US that's really nice. I'd like to see how well that screen holds up to floor use night after night.

    I refuse to use positive grid after the way they delayed their customers 8 plus months for orders pending. Instead of trying to get caught up they just kept advertising til there were too any orders to fill and they fell behind (obviousness pandemic comes into plY too) but then they never responded to e mails.. the comments I saw on their adds lol. I'm hoping their next product they do a better job "pre ordering"

    I personally don't really have a problem with positive grid, I use bias fx and I'm pretty satisfied with it. My order at Thomann also has been delayed for a month because they didn't have the strings I ordered in stock and I kinda just chill and wait, not really a big deal for me personally😅

    Ooh yeah, feeling and play it is probably the best way to figure out whether something is good or not, yet it looks pretty great to me. Just not sure whether it's definitely better than what fractal does and I think the FM3 is actually cheaper too 😅

    I'm sure their products are fine. But it's the customer service. If I had to wait 8 months for a 250 dollar practice album.. id.l pass everytime.
