    Axe Fx III and Xitone 12 inch wedge

    Sounds good to me! Seems pretty neutral. I had tried a Atomic CLR Neo around the same time I got the Xitone and prefered the Xitone. Unfortunately, that was a couple of years ago and I don't remember the specifics about my preference, just that I sent the CLR back and kept the Xitone. Yeah...

    Axe Fx III and Xitone 12 inch wedge

    I have a Xitone 12" wedge I sometimes use with the Axe Fx III. When I do, I simply put the wedge in front, the Axe Fx off to the side or, if at all possible, at the back of the room/stage. I don't have a particular concern about the AxeFx being on the floor as long as it is out of the way of the...

    Axe-Edit III 1.01.00

    The FC editing was a great addition to me, and I don't even own the FC yet. I've been on the fence about whether to order the FC-6, the FC-12, or just stick with a more general MIDI controller. Although the manuals and videos provide all the details on what the FCs can do, being able to sit down...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 3.02 Public Beta #2

    Ah, too bad. Even an asterisk at the end of the control name could do the job without color blindness concerns. But the beta2 approach seems like a reasonable approach to me all in all.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 3.02 Public Beta #2

    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned already (didn't see it anywhere), but it seems like another solution could be using color coding or some other visual indicator to distinguish the controls that are present on the amps that were modeled from the additional controls. That way, the 'basic'...

    FC Switch Jacks

    Another option to consider in the MIDI amp switcher realm is the Voodoo Lab Control Switcher (https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ContSwitcher--voodoo-lab-control-switcher-midi-amp-channel-switcher). Looks very similar to the FootSim bdrepko linked to, but a little less expensive -- can...

    Axe FX III as MIDI interface for external devices?

    Can the Axe III serve as a MIDI interface for connecting external devices to a PC? That is, can MIDI messages received at the Axe's input be seen by software (e.g., DAW, editors for other hardware, etc.) running on a USB-connected computer a connected to the Axe, and conversely can the Axe pass...

    changing amp model without changing amp parameters?

    Thanks AlGrenadine, for these updates to AxeFxSend / FracTool (I dig the new name, btw)! I've been playing around with it a bit. It works well and it is quite useful, as I expected it to be. The most obvious use is for switching between different versions of the same amp, such as the HBE and...

    changing amp model without changing amp parameters?

    I would like to have the option to do so, but it sounds like this isn't a possibility. Not even all the parameters on the basics page stay constant. For example, presence, depth, master, input trim, etc. -- I think everything but input gain, bass, middle, and treble, but I won't swear to that --...

    changing amp model without changing amp parameters?

    Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, although a few parameters such input drive, bass, mid, and treble stay unchanged, most other parameters on the basic and various advanced pages change (unless they happen to already be set to where the selected amp would put them anyway, of course).

    changing amp model without changing amp parameters?

    What I'm looking to do isn't so much get a sense of what individual parameters do -- although that is certainly very useful, I can do that by just tweaking it within a preset with or without changing the amp. Instead, I'm looking to sample different amp models with everything (or at least all...

    changing amp model without changing amp parameters?

    With X/Y switching, you still have the problem of having to go parameter-by-parameter to set everything other than the amp model across X and Y. Not a bit deal if it is a one-time thing, but not something very fun to do often.

    changing amp model without changing amp parameters?

    Is there any way -- in either Ax8-Edit or on the Ax8 itself -- to change the amp model without most of the amp parameters changing? There are times I'd like to try out similar amps (for example, switching between the three different variations of the HBE) to get a feel for their unique...

    Do you use amp knobs on your AX8?

    I use them a fair bit when dailing up a patch from scratch or doing major adjustments and/or experimentation with the amp settings. I'll just pause Ax8-Edit, put the Ax8 up on piano bench + laptop stand to have it at a convenient height, and tweak the knobs directly. I find that more quick and...
