    RIP EVH

    Sorry to say - the amazing Eddie Van Halen has passed. It appears that it was esophegeal cancer (throat). Wait until the other guys in heaven meet him!

    A couple of Axe III headphone jack questions...

    Yes - I do run the Axe III at +4db. Thanks!

    A couple of Axe III headphone jack questions...

    Per specs, these headphones are 63 ohms impedance. Fairly low really. If the headphones are actually WIRED to OUT 1, that's a shame! I guess you have no way to monitor other outputs.

    Anyone sell all their tube amps?

    I sold all of mine - Matchless, Marshall, Egnater, Boogie, Fender, Carr, Fuchs, and others. I'm fully invested. I haven't completely successfully 'danced with the amp-in-the-room' demon, but I'm still trying!

    A couple of Axe III headphone jack questions...

    Hey folks! I have had my Axe III just over a year, and I tried to use the headphone jack for the first time. Initially, I 'couldn't' get any output. I tried my phones with another piece of gear, so they checked out - hmm. After some fiddling, I found that I had to turn OUT 1 up about as far as...

    Hot, Blue, and Righteous - effects query (ZZ Top)

    Hey folks - I have been listening to some really old ZZ Top lately, specifically Tres Hombres. It's been a favorite for a long time. The song I'm asking about is a beautiful ballad that they did called "Hot, Blue, and Righteous" off of that album. I'm trying to figure out what effect Billy...

    Bug or stupidity (14.00)?

    See - this is why I love talking with you guys. I had no idea, and I have read most of TFM.

    Bug or stupidity (14.00)?

    Perhaps the scene philosophy doesn't generally permit drastic parameter changes (too bad), or for that matter, any immersion into the block level parameters. I would actually enjoy the ability to control amp boost from a scene change!!! For now, I do it with a SCENE CONTROLLER.

    Bug or stupidity (14.00)?

    Sorry - meant to respond to this with the last reply... Um.. err... yup it do, if you use SCENE CONTROLLERS. You can tweak pretty much anything you like from SCENE to SCENE. Granted, you only have two SCENE CONTROLLERS, but you can tie them to multiple targets.

    Bug or stupidity (14.00)?

    I agree, but I think there's still room for debate... In effect, scene changes are all about ENGAGE/BYPASS right? IMHO, MUTES are also like an effect bypass in this context (mute speaker A on scene 2, and simultaneously unmute speaker B)? I'm my twisted ex-engineer mind, this makes sense.

    Bug or stupidity (14.00)?

    Good stuff! But let me ask you this - couldn't the CHANNEL change be used to load completely different speakers? That's a big job. The scene change (IMHO) should really be capable of managing cabinet mutes.

    Bug or stupidity (14.00)?

    Thanks guys! I just thought it should treat the CAB BYPASS states on a per-SCENE basis. Live and learn. And to yyz67 - 'like any other block'? Have you checked out SCENE CONTROLLERS?

    Bug or stupidity (14.00)?

    Folks - While mucking around this evening in Axe Edit, I found something that seems inconsistent. It appears that speaker (CAB) muting does not change with the SCENES setting. I'm sure there are other ways this can be done (i.e. channels), but I found it odd. Example: Scene 1: Cab A and B...

    Control Switches - Where are they?

    Why not use scene controllers for that?
