The SoundSculpture Swtichblade system looks very tempting, but it's $2000 and you need a rack/flight, as well as a MIDI foot controller.
Anyone have any experience with a system like this? It seems really cool to be able to connect your pedals in any possible configuration in an instant, and create presets for each combination.

to be honost computers arent such a bad idea these days, if they are a designated computer with midi footswitches controlling presets in whatever daw/program you use.
less price especially if you are using studio quality plug ins, instead of their rackmount counterparts (which these days isnt too different)
just set up a midi footswitch to bypass selected plugins.

next gen shit.
No need for pedals, with a 12 chain and 4 parallel chains at the same time. Every combo you could possibly need/want, top class digital rack mounted head.
Here we are very late at night demoing the Atomic Reactor FRs for you.The mics are Neumann U-87s so a slightly dark, warm sound from them.There is a tiny bit of delay being generated by the Axe-Fx and the sound of the amps has not been treated in any way in the studio - no eq, compression etcThe music is also deliberately unmastered, so not as compressed and bright as a finished commercial recording.Andrew knocked up some rhythm tracks from a drum loop the engineer had lying around, and all the guitar parts you can hear were recorded using the Reactors as the sound source - normally of course, you would DI directly out of the Axe-Fx.We've also tipped the Reactors on their side so that the main speaker and tweeter are getting well clear of the floor - only for the benefit of the mics.We're not even touching on the amazing processing power of the Axe-Fx for multi-fx, tone shaping etc, as we just want to demonstrate that this combination of gear sounds like a real guitar amp, and is a serious option for professionals and dedicated amateurs who don't want to compromise their tone whilst gaining all the benefits of a digital rig.Thanks for listening!
