While in Los Angeles for the NAMM Show, I had the opportunity to sit down with Allen Hinds – one of my favorite guitar players and composers, to explore and discuss guitar tones with Blue Cat’s Axiom, our all-in-one guitar software with built-in amp simulation and effects.

Allen Hinds being mostly used to playing thru good old guitar amps with just a couple of pedals, will he like the tones and feeling when playing straight into our software? Let’s find out, guitar in hands!
