    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 13.01

    All the drives have clean mix in a Fractal. That"s what is so powerful about it. I mix at least 50% cleans into every drive. T808 Mod with 1N4148 diodes x2 sure sounds like my SparkleDrive. I've got two of them right here at my feet.

    Fractal Audio DRIVE models: Hoodoo Drive (based on: Voodoo Lab Overdrive)

    This was one of my favorite drives back when I had a Mesa Mk IV. Liked it so much I had two...one for low drive and more clean and one for more drive and less clean. Marshall BluesDriver->SparkleDrive Low->SparkleDrive Hi-> Butler Real Tube->Mk IV. Good Times.

    Sunday Jam with the Brit JM45 Jump

    Here's my version. I'm trying to go vintage tone so I've got it all saggy and a softer feel. Using scenes, I go from clean to mean. All my patches are stereo so it may sound wonky on a mono rig.

    For you players with CLRs/PowerCabs/Other large FRFRs

    Two CLR's and two QSC K.2 10's here. It's got a pretty big sound and you don't have to get loud to achieve a full, rich tone. Also, have a pair of Equator D8's for very quiet listening. Also, two 1x12 Avatar speaker cabs, one with a Celestion Alnico cream in one and a WGS Blackhawk HP in the...

    Marshall JTM50 simulation

    I've got one that I built years ago. Basically a Brit JTM45 jumped with EL34 tubes and a Plexi tonestack. I've since modified that and use KT77 tubes and a Friedman Smallbox tonestack just because I think it sounds better. The front end is still JTM45 so you'll have to roll back the bass to...

    JC-120 authenticity

    I always got my best results with the JC-120 by turning off the power amp. I was looking for very clean and with the power amp on there was always just a touch of 'haze' I couldn't get rid of until I shut off the power amp.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 12.09

    Ya'know...I've been doing this for a good while. Started with the Ultra...moved up through four variations of Axe FX. Early on, I spent all lot of time working to tame the lows and highs. rolling off the lows... trying to tame any harshness in the highs. This is all through FRFR speakers, so...

    Any Love for the JC120?

    If you want really clean, try with the power amp turned off. It was the only way I could get the last little bit of fur off the notes.

    Wow, terrible news. I admired his talent so much. I came to the Pat Metheny Group for Pat Metheny but left with an even bigger admiration for Lyle Mays. He will be missed.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware 10.00 Public Beta #2

    I'm gonna have to pile on with this 10 beta. I've been a Fractal fan for a good while and have been very satisfied with the product, but the improvements in this issue and especially with the inclusion of the 'Gain Enhancer' Has just knocked it out of the park. The Axe III is soooooo much fun...

    How do you delete a block from the library?

    OK, I found that and was able to delete it. BUT. That begs the question...Why is there a delete field in the LIBRARY drop-down list but you can't enable it? I got it to work one time a couple of months ago but I don't know what enabled it. I can't find any documentation on this function...

    How do you delete a block from the library?

    If your speaking of the library drop down that appears in the BLOCK tab, there is no down-pointing arrow. I see a delete option, but it is grayed-out. How do you get the delete function to work?

    How do you delete a block from the library?

    I used search, I went to the WIKI and I found nothing that tells me how to delete an unwanted block from the library. I see it grayed out in the choice list but how do you get it to work? It seems very non-intuitive to me how this is set up.

    Midlife Crisis Car

    Maybe because I'm past mid-life I'll have to vote none-of-the-above. Also, I have two pro mechanic drinking buddies who have told me enough stories about European car problems and repairs that I'm pretty much scared off of any of them.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.00 Beta

    Just installed 5 beta. Is everyones CF hardness on 9.50? It's never been that high before. All amps are like that, even Fender clean amps. I can't do a listen test because the family is still asleep.
