    Preset will not load and has vanished from display

    Chris - Thanks. Not sure how that got corrupted (I had it originally mapped there but when I went back in, it was blank). Weird...but you have exorcised the ghost in my machine. Thank you!!

    Preset will not load and has vanished from display

    Hello folks. I've searched recent threads and couldn't find this issue. I apologize if this has been covered. So I'm using the AX8 and everything is fine and one day when I used the foot switch to go from my clean tone to a rhythm tone, it never let me switch back. I step on the switch, nothing...

    "lost notes" in chord voicings on Axe II

    Again, thanks for the continuing suggestions. Fiddling with the EQ creates a bit of a moving target -- I feel as though I have a pretty good PEQ block going on right now. Adding "air" increases the bit but at the expense of warmth; the beef reduces the clarity. The Qs I am using are a...

    "lost notes" in chord voicings on Axe II

    Okay, getting still closer. The clarity still isn't quite where it could be but if I really try to emphasize the A string in my picking it almost gets where it needs to be. Meanwhile the tone is getting close. There is an "X Factor" to use that overused term that still quite isn't there but...

    "lost notes" in chord voicings on Axe II

    I think some other factors may have as much to do with this.... ;)

    "lost notes" in chord voicings on Axe II

    Thanks for the continuing thoughts, tips and guidance, folks. I wasn't able to load the last patch -- I'm probably doing something wrong but are Ultra patches able to load into Axe Edit for the II? At any rate, here is what I'm working with presently. I think it's pretty close to the...

    "lost notes" in chord voicings on Axe II

    Results with presets Good clarity on 032 / Cameron High, albeit much less gain than appropriate for my application. Pretty good clarity on 36 / FAS Modern with the delay and reverb turned off (which I would do before tracking) so it is definitely possible to get there. So symphx, your...

    "lost notes" in chord voicings on Axe II

    Thank you very much for the help and for taking the time to give it a whirl. I do, in fact, palm mute the D string. I am a little sloppy in my transcription of the tab. :) That second one was even worse...takes forever in Finale! I have a real appreciation for people that do that for a...

    "lost notes" in chord voicings on Axe II

    THANK YOU. I, too, will experiment with preset #32. If it gives gain and clarity, that's good...whether or not I like preset #32, as Arnold said in Predator, "if it bleeds, we can kill it." :)

    Would be great. Happy to send you what I put together as well. You can email me at artisannvandyk@earthlink.net as I doubt I'm going to be around here again! :)

    "lost notes" in chord voicings on Axe II

    Would love your help, then. All I've got is an amp and cap, and now the PEQ in front because many people here suggested it. LOL! :) Again, people seem to gloss over the point that it happened independentlly of the D112 but acknowledgeing that doesn't suit your desire to insult. With all...

    "lost notes" in chord voicings on Axe II

    Of course ou can say whatever you like. It just makes you a jerk. If the only people capable of getting a good tone have many years of private lessons with Dave Moulton, then it's an issue. Whatever. We're done here. Hope you are adding this much value elsewhere in your life.

    "lost notes" in chord voicings on Axe II

    Thanks, Nikki-K...some great stuff in here! This has become a very interesting thread apart from a couple of zero-value grenade lobbers. :) That's very true. I tried to solve this with a PEQ block after the amp in the original patch. Now that I am abandoning efforts to replicate the...

    "lost notes" in chord voicings on Axe II

    Ya know, I sat there and let the guy from Des Moines insult me but I'm not gonna sit here again. You may not have meant this as arrogantly and rudely as it came across but you'll get farther in life if you mind your manners, particularly if you don't know who you're insulting. I don't wear it...
