Well it's the newest generation of the Axe-Fx. This time twice the processing power and a whole lotta goodies thrown in for good measure.
My favorite is that now you can use it as an external sound card for your computer which comes in super handy when re-amping guitar.
Also the fact that the midi controller for it now can be connected with an ethernet cable instead of midi cable and wall wart alone would've been worth it for me.
The editing with from the unit itself is easier than on the ultra now since various knobs get assigned to controls so you don't have to page and scroll through menus like you used to have to on the Ultra.
Plus there's always the editor and just do it o the computer.


Out of the box it comes set up pretty well with 40 presets to just demo the actual amp sounds.


The reason why I have 2 Ultras and a Axe 2. I love what the box can do sonically. Simply put if you know how to dial gear, anything in your head will come out of the speaker. there nuff said. love how it sounds


I've used the Ultra since 2008 and a few month back gotten the Axe-Fx 2. I didn't think I was gonna like all that much more than the Ultra but to my surprise I did. this one just goes so deep. From the way it lets you go inside the amp and virtually mod anything you'd ever want to. Kudos to the designer.

After 2 years on the Ultra with various amps gathering dust I started a big sell of. Kept a few vintage amps because they have sentimental value for me. Now I'm thinking of ditching those as well since during the recording the last album the tracks I used them on got replaced with the Axe-Fx2.
