    Don't take the Axe-Fx III for granted! (Tried Line6 Helix)

    Also, I don't really think there's any company matching FAS for updates, which to me are critical in 2018. I love that if there's a bug, it gets squashed in a matter of days. I'm still trying to figure out how a company this size manages that while much "bigger" companies are only able to put...

    Don't take the Axe-Fx III for granted! (Tried Line6 Helix)

    Oh, I know lol. Aside from my Strymon stuff, I haven't found anything that beats the Axe reverbs and delays. I think I would dig it now that I have more experience. I've sold off most of my tube amps since going digital, so it's not a matter of realism for me at this point. I haven't plugged...

    Don't take the Axe-Fx III for granted! (Tried Line6 Helix)

    Between this thread and the impending tax increase, I'm seriously tempted to grab a III. I currently have a Helix floor (previously owned a II XL). I wouldn't say I get bad sounds out of it, but I do graze over a decent amount of the amps and stick to half a dozen. When I had the II XL, it...

    Axe3...ORDERED.

    I also live in pdx and I sold my Axe II XL + MFC in less than a month, so . . . Congrats on the new III!

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 6.03 Firmware Released

    Did Axe Edit roll back to 3.12? I'm looking at what's installed on my computer and it's 3.12.1 - it's 3.12 on the fractal website though.

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 6.00 Firmware Released

    Sorry, I should say I thought it was a potential glitch since I didn't bother to notice before (hadn't tweaked sounds in a while and I wanted to re vamp some of my patches with q6). It's not bothersome, was just curious if it was normal behavior.

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 6.00 Firmware Released

    Anyone having the following issue? When resetting the amp block (picking a different amp and going back to the original used), I'm noticing that input gain is staying the same no matter what amp model I go to. I tested it on different presets (factory, untouched) and the same thing is...

    Issues getting a full sound that opens up / gets louder with harder playing

    Wouldn't cranking the master to 10 prevent me from getting a boost in volume with playing dynamics / pedals / etc. (because the signal is compressing)? Or is that something that is remedied with the input drive / trim in reducing gain, thus reducing compression?

    Issues getting a full sound that opens up / gets louder with harder playing

    Most places it isn't an issue. I'm not married to a certain number on my volume control, so if the sound guy needs it I turn it down no issues.

    Issues getting a full sound that opens up / gets louder with harder playing

    For my cleans, I use the Deluxe Verb Nrml. I have the master set around 6-7 (where I have the real amp set when I use it) and the input drive around 3. For heavy sounds, I use the HBE - master set to 4-5 and the gain set to 6.50.

    Issues getting a full sound that opens up / gets louder with harder playing

    I'm currently running my XL+ into a Matrix GT1000FX power amp and mesa recto 2x12 cab (V30's). I have cab sims off and power amp modeling on. Was hoping I could get some suggestions on which parameters to mess with in the amp block for the following issues I'm having with this setup: 1) Not...

    So about that new Si diode clipping in Q5.xx Drive block

    Thanks! Will I run into any issues loading your preset if I'm on Q 5.03? That's what I currently have installed.

    So about that new Si diode clipping in Q5.xx Drive block

    Yeah, would love to get the preset that has the TS9 and the Big Muff settings mentioned earlier. Wonder how easy it would be to replicate my KTR now that the some of the drive blocks have been updated . . . Thanks for doing this!
