One that is loooonnnnggg overdue for a make over. Triaxis II
Rhythm1 Lonestar/ED/Roadking cleans
Lead1 ED/Stilleto/Recto Vintage
Lead2 Same yellow and red/ Recto Modern
Nix the dynamic voice and have a digital representation of the 5 band GEQ with every slider value accounted for in .5 increments from 1-10.
Just for fun, offer it as a stand alone rackmount preamp or with an integrated Simul-Class poweramp in a headshell.
Best idea I've had in a long time
Great idea....

Here are all of the idea's we have for Rack Pieces from us rack guys...

Mesa also needs to seriously consider a usable DI (much like the PDI-09) on all of their amps. The technology is there. It's proven to work reliably and safely. Most of all, it can work separately alongside the slave and it would streamline the points between the power section and the cab.

hi.
i'm a new guy here.
i would like mesa make some one channel rack power amp
two channels are not always needed.
i have mesa dc-3 head and i love like this amp sounds, i have tc electronics g-force, and tc Nova Drive (with this i can make very difficult sounds) and there is only one thing i need to complete power and stereo is - some amp like mesa satellite :D
ps: i´m not from english launguage country, sry :D

Power scaling might be interesting.

Simulclass

MKVI

A superb clean channel. Have a mode selector switch like Bogner uses.

A dedicated IIC+ section. Two voices. Get the awesome crunch of the clean channel and dynamic gain channel.

A nice MKIV channel with gain going into Uberschall zone.

And it must have a Rectifier channel! That is the beat down riffing tone. Sometimes I want that can of bees buzz.

The EQ must be a digital preset type you can store a unique setting for each channel.

You can scoop chug the Recto channel and pump in some miss for leads.

That would be an amazing amp in the 3500-4000 range that I would def buy.

A 1x12 iso cab that's tuned to respond similar to a Recto cab.

How about just implement MIDI switching on their dang amps like everyone else has already done.
Wouldn't it be nice to footswitch between Vintage and Modern on your Recto? Or between IIC+ and Mark IV on a Mark V? :twisted:

The Mark V really suits me 100% and is really a "state of the art" amp for me... BUT .... It would certainly add a little bit of spice if you could have a MIDI controller, wouldn't it??
