Re: LD: Your opinions please - Terratec Axon AX 50

I had a yamaha G50 and was never very happy with the tracking. I was  
using it with a roland GK 2 pickup after several months of playing  
around with it finally gave up and sold it off on ebay. I recently  
picked up an axion ax50 and using it with the same guitar, though I  
have since installed a graphtech ghost pickup, and it is worlds apart  
different from my experience with the G50. The tracking is instant and  
I have had very little adjustments to make in my playing style. I'm  
running it through Reason 4 and having an absolute blast playing cello  
and basoon parts with my guitar.

I can't make any comments about midi mapping... I still don't really  
understand the whole midi thing. I like things that plug in and pretty  
much work the way I expect them to.
