  • Hola, AB -
    I’ve been stuck inside a HUUUGE programming project that we finally completed yesterday — and I’m now just starting to read up on the Ares 1.03 FW update for my XL2+. I’d like to update but I also don’t want to chase my tail — has the FW become stable (and did they find the missing 3dB)?
    I trust your opinion: stick with Quantum or up to Ares 1.03?
    Cheers,
    Bruce

    hang in there with Quantum for now and this summer I'll get ARES updates out for the XL stuff... The amps react a little better with ARES but Quantum is still perfectly great.

    As always, thank you sir -
    Does the new update 3.0 change anything? I always tweet until thinks get weird then I go back to the naked amps most times. Just updated and freaking a little.

    Yes it does change tones somewhat. You can use it but eventually I will do an update. Need the public 3.0 to go final first (still beta) then takes a few months
    Thanks for a giant boost forward. Your 1000 naked amps has really helped ease the pain of getting away from tubes and pedals.
    Hey ab99,

    I read somewhere that you have a killer Mike Stern preset?

    Hi, yes, I did include a Mike Stern-inspired preset in the bonus part of the 1000+ Naked Amps TonePack for the Axe-Fx...
    AustinBuddy is working on updating Axe-Fx 700+ Naked Amp TonePack to 10.1 firmware, and making a NEW Axe III 1000+ Naked Amps TonePack!
    Hi Austinbuddy,
    Recently purchased your Ax8 presets and was duly impressed. Noticed that most of the clean presets that you put an Fx loop in the presets and I understand how you would use that with a real amp but if Im using a FRFR is it best to route delay or pitch through that block or is that not necessary? Thank you for producing an outstanding product!

    Thanks! Actually, check out the README files. The FX Loop is there for people who use power amps and real cabs (out of Output2) - as you said. It is NOT positioned in the chain to be an external effects loop -- if you wanted to do that, it would be better to place the loop AFTER the Cab, rather than before it. Make sense?

    Hi, Austinbuddy....I just wanted to thank you for the AWESOME advice on the Roy Buchanan Preset you gave me! It really works well! Any help for some Danny Gatton ideas for my franken-Tele with Barden's would also be great, but, again, I just wanted to thank you for the help with the Buchanan preset!

    Hi Austin ,

    "Blue hotel " and "Lie to me " for m'y XL+

    Hey Fabrice, does this mean that you would like me to not work on those tones for you?
    austinbuddy
    austinbuddy
    Hi Fabrice: Not sure I got your email? Really don't do custom preset work for hire, unless working with an artist before a tour, that's when I make exceptions for that and financially worthwhile.

    There is a wealth of info on the internet about people's rigs (Premiere Guitar's rig rundown) that helps get 80% of the way there... does Isaak have one?

    Moke may be your guy. Good luck!
    Hi purchased pack and have installed classic rock & blues into Fx2 but the No Brown M&M's is missing ? Any ideas thnaks
    austinbuddy
    austinbuddy
    ? That's weird. Will check it out. I can send it to you as preset to your email from your order. I will check to see what Fractal unit version you have. I am away from my workstation so can't do it right now, but will do it tonight. Okay? Thanks. If you need to email me use heybuddy@austinbuddy.com. Enjoy the preset pack!
    Hi Buddy, very much looking forward to your next preset pack, I can't wait to pick that up! I have been loving the naked presets as you know.
    I use your EJ preset so often, I can't wait to try the new version of it you just talked about!! Chomping at the bit for that one! Thank you for all you do!

    Thanks Manny! No firm future preset pack plans yet; really focused on making sure the 700+ Naked Amps TonePack gets to as many Fractal users as we can. We aren't even at 200 customers yet, thousands of users -- so still marketing and much "spread the word" work to be done. May just post the latest EJ presets to Axe-Change once done. Cheers!
    So lately I am working an a set of raw amp banks demonstrating for every amp channel in the AXE FX/AX8...
    Austin ,-
    i set up the AX8 and the loop a lator as u said to , many thanks sounds killer.
    just was wondering how to keep the level on the AX8 from being in the RED on every preset?
    i have the 2 outputs on the AX8 turned up full, as i've been informed to do so using the 4CM , but all mine seem to clip in the red?

    Any ideas?

    Davey .

    I would not necessarily turn up the outputs 100% at all. I would have them at noon or 2:00. Try that and clipping should stop/imrpove... There is also a way in the software, input/ouput section I think, where you can globally reduce the output of the AXE8 in -db terms....let me know, good luck!

    by the way I had tried to send more detailed instructions but the forum keep saying i was over word limit! glad you figured out the connections with my 'edited" version :)
