Korg A3

I have been informed that Edge now has installed the A3 at the rear of his rack... There's no photo evidence but we know that he often changes things around eg UAD swapped for Pod Pro...

This news came from the Uk shows...

I guess that he maybe using the pod pro for The Miracle. He didn't use the Axe fx for the main riff so I guess he's got a sound he's happy with from the pod...
Only other info so far is 2xsdd3k pedals and get this a total of 9 fractals in underworld....

He's got plenty of money, in which case the customer is always right. The dude wants 9 fractals, that's what he will get.

It had good sound, but all that old gear was also vulnerable as hell, if only because most of it was long out of production. And lets not forget that all those 19" unit were not designed to be taken out on the road and subjected to all that wear and tear. They were designed to be used in studios. All that traveling, building up, tearing down, in cold climates, in hot climates, in humid climates its just not right for gear designed to be stuck into air conditioned studios. It's no wonder he had to carry back ups for every piece and it was a wonder his gear didn't malfunction more often then it did.

It looked wicked awesome though. Edge's Twin Towers of Sonic Doom was a magnificent sight to be held. Too bad it went underground with the 360 tour.

Yes, eventide, you are right. The edge has an spare racks near his main rack with 4axe and 1 sdd3k. + an axe alone. Total= 9 AXe 2SDD3000. The question is in the pedals because we cant confirm some pedals in his drawer. Habe u got some
Info?

Imo I think the TC 2290 sounds much better than the axe fx. I own both and the tc delay is far superior to the axe but I guess it's a trade off against reliability

I'm the same. Most delays or overdrives sound exactly the same to me. Being tone deaf has a big advantage though. You don't have spend ages working on finding the right tone, you just use what you have right now and work with it and you might actually create some music instead. The Tom Morello approach, remember?
