    Friedman HBE 2018 C45 [MIXTEST]

    This riff is so tasty that it made me finally check out King's X. I wish I hadn't slept on them in the '90s. I'm loving all their stuff.

    Expression Pedal Calibration Question

    That did it for me! Thanks!!! I forgot that there's a separate menu for calibrating pedals in the FC Controller controller setup section.

    Expression Pedal Calibration Question

    I just calibrated Pedal1 and Pedal2 a bunch of times and that has solved my weird volume oscillation issue (I did take a video while it was occurring if anyone is interested to prove I wasn't making it up hehe). However - now I'm also only able to get FC 1 Pedal 2 to reach 9.84 volume at max...

    Expression Pedal Calibration Question

    I'm having an odd issue with my pedal as well. I just haven't made a post about it yet because I use the pedal infrequently. Latest firmware (12.07) installed on Axe-Fx III. Latest firmware (1.11) installed on FC-12. Run through calibration steps for pedal. Everything looks OK. Add a volume...

    How Do *You* Digitally Reamp with the II?

    I am doing what the guide in the sticky thread at the top of this forum suggest. UPDATED with link to thread: https://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/guide-re-amping-with-external-sound-card-audio-interface.97771/ I have an audio interface (not the one in the guide - mine is a Focusrite...

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 9.04 Firmware Release

    This happens to me fairly frequently. Nearly every time I install a FW update (and I typically download and install each new one... the only ones I've skipped are beta releases), it sounds awful. Then I re-install the same firmware and it sounds great again. No idea why. I hope its not a sign...

    The Ultimate Amp Tweak Guide: "ML Method"

    I tried this method last night and I thought the sound was pretty crappy. I'm not sure if that's just because I didn't follow it correctly or because a guitar tone for recording will not sound as "full" as a "bedroom guitar" (from the video) sound. I hope its the latter. I didn't get a chance...

    Recording through multiple FW updates

    There is a sticky thread at the top of this forum about re-amping using SPDIF through an audio interface - I cannot link to it because I'm still considering a n00b and cannot post links, but its up there called "Guide: Re-Amping with external sound card/audio interface" I'm wondering what you...

    Recording through multiple FW updates

    If you recorded a DI of the performance, you could just re-amp. This really depends though. Even from song to song, you may make slightly different mix moves to make the guitars sound how you want them to in context of that song. So maybe the question shouldn't be how to make the guitars sound...

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.00 Firmware Release

    I had the same issue with an awful sounding upgrade. I installed FW Q7 (never installed any of the betas), upgrading from FW Q6.03.1 - everything sounded horrible. I was wondering what everyone was talking about saying how great it sounded. I tried resetting amps, making brand new presets with...

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.00 Firmware Release

    According to the Player Pack info page on Ownhammer's website: Fat: the same as or very similar to the OH1F-XX in the Quick Start directory Full: the same as or very similar to the SP2-XX in the Quick Start directory These mixes very well may be unique for FAS, but using one of the ones above...

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.00 Public Beta #2

    Huh. Interesting. I see that it has the body shape and control set of the Jaguar, but I've never seen a Jag with a dark headstock or with that font. I just assumed it was one of the many custom brands that make offset guitars in the style of the Fender offsets. Thanks!

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.00 Public Beta #2

    Off-topic... but what guitar is that? I can't make out the headstock even when I fullscreen the video, but man does that thing look (and sound) nice!

    Noise Gate Threshold and Release Approaches

    Thanks for sharing this!!! This technique solved a noise issue that I've been trying to tackle forever with a noise gate alone and was getting nowhere.

    Recording some black metal. What to use?

    Did you ever upload this patch? If you haven't, can you? I know we're many versions past FW17 now, but I'd like to give this one a shot. I'm writing stuff that sounds like these two bands a lot. Alcest is basically my favorite band.
