I've posted a couple of tone matches now.
First up is my own amp- a Custom Audio PT50 head.
I took an IR of my cabinet and then matched the amp.
Have a listen to the audio file.
First up is the original recording, then the Axe FX model http://www.jamesrichmond.com/misc/pt...t50_match1.mp3
The second one was a match of the song "Smart" by Helmet.
Not as close but still pretty good.
Can't take an IR of the cab for obvious reasons but just did a straight tonematch.
Same deal here- the original then the Axe FX model. http://www.jamesrichmond.com/misc/he...art_match1.mp3
