    Annoying transient plectrum sound

    Here are my presets. I don't use Cab IRs in these presets. Exp pedals controls Wah and Amp boost. My setup is Axe Fx 2 (Mark I), FW = Ares 2.0 => Matrix GT1000FX => Zilla Modern 212 with Celestion Alnico Creams. Yes, the Pick Attack parameter is still there, both in Axe-Edit and Axe UI, but it...

    Thanks but it is not clipping. Pick Attack is normal and even desired but too much is a bit too much - IMHO.

    Annoying transient plectrum sound

    Did not have much time today so I only captured it for your pleasure :) Find it to be most prominent with old school Drive sounds. Gate, Supply Sag, B+ Time Constant and fast attack Compressor still to be tried to tame it. https://www.dropbox.com/s/tgac6u4o4zaxdjv/Pick%20Attack.mov?dl=0

    Annoying transient plectrum sound

    Read old stuff + wiki and found out that pick attack contains all frequencies which I also experienced my self with EQ analyzer. Gate/Expander, Supply Sag and B+ Time Constant could help. Pick Attack is good, I just need find a way to make it better.

    Annoying transient plectrum sound

    Thank you both! In addition to the normal picking, I just went through my guitar with Logic Pro's EQ analyzer for all possible weird noises I can create :) Could not find any particular cause or frequency this way. Need to check with Axe tomorrow.

    Annoying transient plectrum sound

    I recently took notice of annoying transient plectrum sound that is pretty prominent in my crunch and lead presets. It is not that well-known high bitch chirp or metallic sound but kind of friction-like really unmusical sound. It "ignites" when I hit a string, is pretty loud and then disappears...

    MFC-101 Mark I / RJ45 ==> EtherCON Connector

    Indeed :) Did not change it my self but if you have necessary equipment and some experience with circuit boards, it should not be a problem! Some "drilling/adjustment" was required, of course, look at the steel chassis. It works so much better now!

    About Matching Your Cabinet's Resonant Frequency

    I have a 212 parallel 16 Ohm => 8 Ohm cabinet. So I calculated 20*LOG10(55/6,55)/2,4=7,7... Celestion informed that their all speakers impedance will peak at around 100 -110 ohm at resonance. For this speaker the DC is 13.1 Ohm / 2 = 6,55. According the Celestion I put 55 to the formula that is...

    About Speaker LF Resonance

    Try this! Add a Synth block, settings: Type = Sine, Track = Off. Now sift the Frequency between 70 - 100 Hz and really FEEL the resonance with your palm/hardel on the cabinet's front panel (wood) ... You have to set the volume quite loud but you can do this even at home.

    Tips for Mesa Bookie IV Clean & Cab

    Hi, my guitar wizard friend challenged me for good. He asked me to bring my AXE rig to his studio next week. His favourite rig is simple: Mesa IV combo / clean channel & some clean booster & some nice delay. Hard to admit but I have never played Mesa IV, so I don't know anything about it. I...
