    Loving the axe 2 for bass guitar

    I've always cross-fired PA bass bins for FOH, so this is a great idea for bass backline. The trend for small bass rigs on stages then running bass through wedges along with the vocals etc for on-stage sound, destroys the old-school vibe of drums and bass in the centre as the power house of a...

    Matrix Neolight NL212 traditional cab

    Hey LB - hope all well? I think volume level plays a part. At least with my excellent NL12, at low volume levels cab sims worked quite well. But at higher gig volumes, they were better turned off, which is how I gig. I never persevered with EQ'ing to retain cab sims as the cab sound of the...

    Show us your MFC setups! (post your pics)

    Not quite: I change the function but not the label. So now what's going on makes sense only to me!!

    Can you use the MFC-101 with the Axe FXII and Eventide Factor Pedals?

    Following up, having got this working. You need a midi splitter box to route clock beat into and around the Axe, as it doesn't tx clock beat, but does tx program changes. The Axe does however transmit MIDI power, so you don't need a midi power module. I'm driving the Axe from the MFC by...

    IS there a basic introduction to using the MFC to control other midi devices?

    Just repeating what I reported on another thread: AxeII does not transmit any time code. I'm told this was disabled after firmware 6 or so as it scrambled things, which wasn't corrected in subsequent upgrades - which is a shame. MFC doesn't operate on both midi and ethernet modalities. Using...

    Controlling other MIDI gear with MFC-101

    SO, with no answer, here's what I've learned: The Axe does not transmit time code through the Midi Thru/Out. It transmits everything else, just not beat clock or any other time code. Apparently this is because for some reason the Axe screws it up, so it was disabled around Firmware update 6 (or...

    IS there a basic introduction to using the MFC to control other midi devices?

    Nor me. So I'm trying to find from Matt at Fractal Support, out some basics about what the Axe II and MFC do midi-wise, as it's not clear from the manuals or Forum: - does the ethercon connection disable the MFC's midi? - does the Axe II's midi Out/Thru in fact not transfer received midi...

    Can you use the MFC-101 with the Axe FXII and Eventide Factor Pedals?

    Hi Izzy - delayed reaction from me!! With this set up, are you getting time code through to all the devices, as if so how? Axe doesn't transmit beat clock says the manual, and I haven't been able to get it through midi from the Axe main unit outputs. I'm now using a drum machine for the...

    IS there a basic introduction to using the MFC to control other midi devices?

    Hi Duke. Yep - I'd added my thoughts to that thread.... I'm now stuck on time code and not wanting to use a computer. My best guess so far to use a midi splitter to send time code fro a drum machine to the Axe and to a midi merge 2 in 2 out splitter, which merges the midi out/thru from the...

    Controlling other MIDI gear with MFC-101

    Will the Axe Fx midi thu/out transmit time code to another midi device?

    IS there a basic introduction to using the MFC to control other midi devices?

    I'm trying to bring in a Pigtronix Infinity looper, BeatBuddy drum machine and Dave Smith Tetra synth, to be controlled all together using midi. it may be that using the MFC is too ambitious for all of this, but I'd be very grateful if anyone who's using the Pigtronix could talk me through the...

    Looper for live applications????

    Hi Klashouz. I'm setting up my Pigtronix to work with the Axe and MFC 101. I'm struggling presently with midi to match up the tempos. I have Frankenstands too. They're very cool!

    Does the MFC 101 transmit Beat Clock or other tempo data?

    The Axe FX2 manual says it doesn't transmit any beat data (and that it will only conform to Beat Clock). I'm trying to midi link for tempo a Beat Buddy drum machine and a Pigtronix looper to the Axe. The best way to do this for me will be through the MFC - keeping everything on the...

    Is anyone use a McMillen 12 Step to control an Axe FXII?

    It seems I bought the wrong one, and that the Soft Step is what I should have got... :-( I could change patches using the 12 Step, and assign only one set of velocities to be played the same for each ofthe 12 "note" keys as they're only really assignable as notes....

    Is anyone use a McMillen 12 Step to control an Axe FXII?

    Thanks 1vl. I worked out the need for the midi box, and one is arriving later today! I missed the Axe sysex file on the KMI site - but can't find it. Could you please let me have a link? I'll report back on how all this goes. It's not going to replace the MFC, but a lightweight beer-proof...
