    Calling all Peterson tuner owners/experts...!!!

    Hello guys! I'm looking for any users of the Peterson 590 or 490ST model tuners...I picked up a 590 for a great price but I noticed that there was an extra tuning profile in the 490ST for guitar that the 590 didn't have...and I wondered if anyone knows what that tuning is? This extra setting is...

    Low or No USB/Computer Input?

    Hey Chris! So I haven't tried this yet myself, but I'm wondering something...can this new USB level be used to adjust the volume of music coming from an iphone/ipad into the axefx 3? I remember there being some issues where the USB audio was hardwired to output 1 with no way to adjust it's...

    Interesting. How much do you think a balanced cable would help? I’d be open to adding a circuit to make the guitar output balanced...that could then be plugged into one of the balanced inputs on the AxeFX. I’m curious how much you think that would help though...wouldn’t the pickup still be...

    Thanks for the replies guys! I'll have my guitars shielded next visit to the shop. It's just amazing how much noise it picks up...and I must be one of the unlucky one's to have more EMI in my area than others...

    Yes, I’m on 1.13. I understand that there is always going to be some inherent noise in high gain amps...but it’s CLEARLY excessive here, especially when my guitar isn’t pointed in just the right direction. I’m just trying to understand what the possible cause is so I can play with as little...

    No...but there was noise present. Let me explain. At the factory they had about 8 guitars in the factory store that you could play, along with a couple of their PRS amps...but I didn’t have my AxeFX there. I played 3 or 4 of those guitars plugged into one of their amps...and I also played mine...

    Does this sound "normal" to you? I ran the L/R output 1 into my pc and recorded this with Reaper. I started on the factory preset 37 Das Metal...you can hear me moving the guitar around from the worst to the best angles in the first 40 seconds. Then I play a few chords, then scroll through some...

    Turning off my cell doesn’t have any effect. Do me a favor...go to the 2 minute mark of this video...he’s advertising for the Rocktron hush pedal, but he shows what it sounds like normally as he moves the guitar around... This is exactly what my AxeFX sounds like. He says that it is regular...

    I’ve went to some extremes at times...One night I started turning off everything in the house...and while there were certain things that did have an effect (dimmers, thermostat, etc), nothing took away the bulk of the problem. I even ended up turning off every single breaker in the house...

    Hey Rex! Yes, there is a spot that’s better in the rotation, and when in that spot if I also lean towards the floor at about a 45 degree angle it’s even better, almost quiet. However, it’s very hard to play like that. I’ve asked several people about getting my guitars shielded, and everyone...

    Multiple Buzzing Sounds

    But that’s only one type of grounding problem. The fight I’ve been having for years is that there seems to be something in the “area” outside my home that is generating emi and my guitar pickups are picking it up...and with high gain amps it’s LOUD. The internal noise gate in the AxeFX III will...

    Background noise?

    Ok, great! Any tips on settings to keep sustain since it has a noticeable drop in sustain?

    Background noise?

    Thanks Zenaxe! Sorry, I was out of town on business for awhile there. Ok, so I've tried what you suggested here and I must say, it definitely sounds better. That digital switching noise is gone and everything seems much smoother. Also, the tone is not affected anymore as well. However, there is...

    Background noise?

    I've been messing with this for days now...I still find it difficult to get a natural sounding decay while using these filters to reduce noise. I've had several problems... 1. If set too aggressively, it just acts like a gate. 2. If set to where it seems to reduce the noise there is an audible...
