      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...

      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!

        Hey Fabrice, does this mean that you would like me to not work on those tones for you?

        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!

      1. 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!

      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 .
      1. austinbuddy
        austinbuddy
        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!

      Hi -
      Could you confirm this is THE way to setup my Dumble ODS with the bludo loop a lator and AX8 using the 4CM.

      Preamp Out on the amp to the Bludo Loop INPUT, the Loop OUT will go to your Amps Power Amp IN.

      AX8 :
      Guitar to INPUT on AX8
      SEND from the Loop-a-lator to AX8 IN 2 Left
      AX8 OUT 1 Left to Loop-a-lator RETURN
      AX8 OUT 2 Left to your Amp's INPUT

      Davey .
      1. austinbuddy
        austinbuddy
        run the AXE8 in MONO output (L+R SUM) in the I/O config page.

        Guitar into AX8 input

        from PRE OUT L/MONO, go into the Bludo Amp input (use normal. not FET)

        Then Cable from AX8 IN POST to the SEND on the loop a lator

        Then, Cable from the AXE8 Out POST Left/Mono to the RETURN on the Loop a lator.

        Now, you have to configure presets accordingly as PRE and POST
