    AX8 for bass rig?

    @MSP OK, there's your answer.

    AX8 for bass rig?

    This could go either way. Are you near any big box music stores where you can audition some full range powered PA cabinets with the rig? If your gigs are such that the bass will be reinforced in the PA system, then that's your best bet for getting this done with a powered full range cabinet on a...

    AX8 for bass rig?

    What's your budget? Have you ever experienced the way bass guitar sounds with cabinet simulation through a full range PA speaker or monitor? For that matter, is this your first go-around at live bass? Have you played bass live through a traditional amp?

    FCB1010 Help (No Mod/No Chip)

    Thanks for weighing in. I haven't used or programmed the AxeFXII/FCB1010 combo in over 5 years, so I'm spitballing a lot of this from memory. If I still had my rig, I'd just fire it up and see how I had both pieces configured. There are definitely a few settings to keep in mind when using this...

    FCB1010 Help (No Mod/No Chip)

    Also look at these Global Configuration settings to see how they are set up... from the owner's manual : MAPPING MODE NONE/CUSTOM This determines whether the Axe-Fx II will respond explicitly to MIDI program change messages received, or whether it will re-map incoming program change messages...

    FCB1010 Help (No Mod/No Chip)

    When you press button 6 to go back to the preset, does the AxeFx go to the preset that it is supposed to go to, or does it go to a preset that is off by one place? Check that, and if this is the case, check Global Configuration for DISPLAY OFFSET and change it. Do you have any other scenes...

    FCB1010 Help (No Mod/No Chip)

    Have you programmed all the switches on the FCB1010, or just the one switch? The tutorial has the FCB1010's bottom row of switches set up this way: button 1 = Scene 2; 2 = Scene 3; -------> button 5 = Scene 6. When you engage a preset from the top row of preset buttons (FCB1010 buttons 6...

    Trying to do a spillover with 2 presets

    You may have better luck keeping the spillover effects within the same preset rather than try to get it to work the way you're doing it. The implementation of spillover reverb & echo has always been a little wonky. Utilize multiple amps and signal routings so that you can use scenes or control...

    Is CLR my best option

    I was in early on the pre-sale waiting list for an active CLR and had an odd distortion coming from one when I got it. Module was replaced at no charge, quickly, and never had a problem since. They're the only speaker I own that I consider to be a keeper, and have had many years of reliable use...

    AustinBuddy possible Bass Presets for the Axe III - what do you want to see?

    Not as sterile an amp as you might think. The Acoustic 360, 370 and 320 have a lot of personality IMO, not to mention the double 15" front loaded 406 cabinet and the iconic folded horn 361 and 371 cabinets. Some of the fattest, honkiest, beefiest modeled bass tones I've heard have been of...

    Wish Bass amps and cabinets

    Make one of these amp models sound like an Acoustic 370, SWR RedHead, or GK800RB. Thanks! ;)

    Wish Bass amps and cabinets

    More disappointing than touchy. I and others fought this battle mightily over the years...VARIETY being the operative. In 10 or so years of the AxeFx platform, what you see is all that there is for bassists.
