I sold my Kramer Pacer, and bought an Atomic Amplifire. I’ve been hearing great things about it, so I figured I would give it a shot. It’s going to take me a little while to get accustomed to the thing, and tweak it to get some patches I really like. The problem is that I usually have a type of sound that I use regularly, with a few others that I use from time to time, and even others that I play with with some recordings (other than the main track).
I’ll be comparing the sounds I get to the Eleven Rack, that I really love. I’m still thinking that the only thing that will replace the 11R would be a Kemper. But that’s down the line a while.
I’ll be doing a comparison of the sounds and options with my Eleven Rack. One of the problems is that I have “my sound” that I use 90+% of the time, but I don’t want the Amplifire to simply match the tones. It wouldn’t justify keeping it.
The software seems very easy to use, and the number of options seems staggering at times.
I wish that the EProm chip on my Behringer FCB1010 had a setting for the unit. I really love that pedalboard, and I use it all the time with my Eleven Rack.
Other than that, it’s going to take me a few weeks to get the hang of this thing, and see what I can make it do.
