Default Bye 11R

Well, I've finally succumbed.

It's time to move on from the 11R, now awaiting delivery of the AxeFXIII.

The orange baby has grown old (before growing up ). I've owned one since it was first released and currently own two. It's been a great unit and comparing it to the AxeIII it's a damn shame it was never given any love from Avid. It could have been so much more.

No regrets though, I certainly got my moneys worth out of it/them over the years.

Congrats on the AxeIII.
I too have moved on from my 11R, but like you; I enjoyed many years of great tones, ease of use and feel I got my moneys worth out of that box.

Software today is so good, so I usually use software based sims because there are so many more options. But the great thing about the 11R, even today, and going forward, you can always record the dry guitar track and use any amp sim on it that you want after the fact. And of course, if the 11R sound works, just use that.

I don't see myself getting rid of my 11R ever, it's so useful even today. Even though I'm using a lot of Plugin Alliance sims on the final product (in my testing they are some of the most realistic sims) the 11R still has it's place.

And of course it's great to be able play guitar without having to turn on a PC or open a DAW.

LONG LIVE THE ELEVEN RACK!

Lets see some pics and hear some tones when you get the AXE FXIII 🤘

Just checked out the AXE FXIII, as I haven't bought my 11R yet, and I can safely say it's way out of my budget. I think this is why the 11R is still appealing because for the price it's on sale for these days, you get a lot for your money.

For me, it's an all-around audio interface and effects processor for guitar, synths, and vocals, plus other advantages like what Benoni mentioned above. What else could I buy which does all of that in the same price range?

From my limited experience of owning an 11R, the display may be a little dated now - but as I said on another thread - the menu is really intuitive. Anyway, I like the slightly retro appearance - I'm guessing they were going for that 1970s machine look when it was made?

I say go for it. The 11R is a fantastic unit and you do get a lot for your money. As I said, no regrets from me and I doubt you ever will regret buying one either.

I feel that I've outgrown it but will keep one of them 'for ol times sake'.

The only reason I can actually afford and AxeIII is I have a vehicle surplus to requirement....lol that sounds crazy, selling a car to buy a piece of kit.
