    Axe-Fx does not sound right

    Although the input board isn't terribly expensive, I'm leaning towards that not being an issue. The more I've A/B'd the front and rear inputs since I've posted this, the more it doesn't seem like they are all that different and share the same qualities I dislike in how it sounds and more...

    Axe-Fx does not sound right

    I'm pretty sure Fractal sells replacement input boards, but has anyone repaired theirs? I don't see any clearly bad solder joints, but I wonder if anyone knows what a common failure with them would be.

    Axe-Fx does not sound right

    Harm - Yes I did try that. I just tried the rear input and it made a noticeable difference! This is great. Still not quite a good as the front input was for a short time, as I described, but after reading a few front vs rear input threads, I can see why the front is better anyway. I think this...

    Axe-Fx does not sound right

    Not either of those unfortunately. Especially not after wiping the whole thing and starting a new patch. But I also loaded a bank of patches back on and they were fine as far as thats concerned.

    Axe-Fx does not sound right

    I just cleared all banks and loaded the clean system file to clear everything out. Started a preset with only the Friedman HBEC45 and the Recto new mix IR, switching to the Petrucci mix IR, and it still sounds bad.

    Axe-Fx does not sound right

    I just opened it up and all cables were/are fine and connected properly.

    Axe-Fx does not sound right

    I have not. It does not move much, and wasn't during the past week at all other time my plugging a cable into the front of it. But I can do that to check and see.

    Axe-Fx does not sound right

    For the longest time I felt like something wasn't right with the sound of my Axe Fx II Mark 1. I tried going through different pieces of my setup to narrow it down, blaming my cables, monitors, guitars..everything but the possibility that its the actual Axe Fx. I could never (within the past...

    Help with really weird sound on Logic recordings

    I thought it sounded like interference as well but literally nothing has changed in the setup around my computer or house in general so I didn't know where to start. Also, I only have my axe connected via usb. I don't use it as the output for my computer, so I'm not sure if that just makes...

    Help with really weird sound on Logic recordings

    Hey guys. So I haven't tried to record anything in Logic via my axe in a while but I usually have it open so I can hit record when I come up with an idea. Yesterday I recorded something really quick and got this super weird intermittent sound. It has never happened before but now it happens at...

    John Mayer with an Axe-Fx III and Khalid ...

    It makes it look even better for Fractal that there's pictures of him using a Kemper in his dressing room, and now hes seen with this ;)

    Dumble Lead patch w/Ibanez Prestige AZ2402

    Just wanted a share a patch I made using the ODS-100 Ford 2 model with the Full OD in front. It works great with or without the drive block engaged but the recording is with it on. I'm just messing around so its nothing spectacular, but it is a really nice tone that sounds pretty searing and...

    New Line 6 FRFR cab - Powercab

    Does anyone else not like the idea of having so much technology going on in the speaker cabinet? After having my active FRFR fail a couple of times now, I've wished I had a separate power amp and cab (FRFR or traditional) because when one of them goes down, I am without the whole thing. Just...

    FRFR: I Admit I Prefer It

    Thought I'd chime in and say if you do get the Alto, take how it sounds with a grain of salt when looking at it as FRFR. The whole thing is plastic and it definitely reflects in the sound. Comparing it to my Mackie HD1221, its definitely in a different league. When up at volume, it certainly...
