Can you make the TriAxis sound better than these samples? How?

Well, you have to understand that you can only make a Triaxis sound like a Boogie.
Some of the sounds are not that bad, they just sound like they need a great power amp and a little TLC.
Try using a good parametric EQ. It can make a world of difference with a Triaxis. I have a pair of them, one in my main rig, and an extra paperweight. I personally use it for some bluesy/ rock sounds. Never for clean or for super heavy. It just doesn't do those well. I always combine it with a TC Electronic PEQ.
So just give it a little more tweaking, and add a good EQ, and you should get a boatload of sounds.

I was dissapointed when I got my triaxis.The stock sounds were not what I was expecting.Then I read the manual.It really helped me understand how all the channels worked and interacted.A little tweaking and I got what I wanted.It won't do clean sounds Like a blackface fender vibrolux,but still has very usable cleans.

Easy my friend. Try double-tracking stuff. Play left channel. Change the tone a little (or don't even change it at all), play the right channel. Put it all together. This totally kicks ass for rhythm tones. Doesn't always work with lead stuff, but lead stuff has to be in the mix to sound good, it doesn't sound all that good by itself. Unless you're Steve Vai in which case you can strum a single note all alone and you'll get better melody going than I can with all 24 frets and 7 strings, but then the tone won't really matter.
