One of the big reasons I bought the QC, is to have an all in one…much easier to transport gigging/ studio go to piece of kit. This thing seemed, almost limit less in its abilities! Download models of pedals, amps and so so many other things!
The great day was here (8 months later) but yay it finally was in my hands (and oh yeah, after i was on the list I thought the price would justify all that power this would give me…but…when they finally shipped it to me, the price had gone up almost $150 WTF?, that like walmart raising the price of your layaways at Christmas when you pick them up!)
Very strange and didnt make me happy at all!
then after i really dug into it, i realized the many reviews i read and watched…the sounds and effects are…eh, average at best…my Helix, (Headrush very very avearge) My GT 1000, my Axe fx and my FM3 (both Fractal Audio) and lastly my (i fogot almost 8 year old) Kemper…They all sound great, but to heavy and bulky, especially to just grab and go for travel (the QC is heads and tails above them all!) And when you add in the audio interface capabilities…WoW!
But sound wise…nope
Now all that being said … i CAN use the loop and my very favourite pedals and gear to shape the tonal qualities of the QC!
Right now I guess my biggest gripe is that i bought into all the hype about “the available” sounds to import from the QC cloud.
So Ive downloaded about 70 presets from the QC cloud…in “almost every case” the neural captures are missing…some presets had 5 or 6 captures in them and now its a total waste to download "more than is acceptable! I mean you dont even know how the creator intended it to sound, and ive noticed a lot of them are also missing the…output to setting…1/2 2/3 1 2 which one is it?
Dont get me wrong, ive packed it back up for return, unpacked it and packed it back up again and again…I have 45 days, but i think im keeping it-------it can only get better, right??
So since im looking at this from a noobie point of view…
Am i missing something? ive done 50 captures, made 25 fairly good presets and am starting to upload them to QC cloud for judgement by other creators!
i have looked and looked through the forum and could find nothing on this subject.
any help, or pointers would be more than greatly appreciated!
Its a great piece of potable studio on the go kind of thing, it had a learning curve but ive got it down now…at least the basics!
Thanks guys and have a great and safe week out there!
