    Axe Fx for my mac

    I sold off all my guitar recording gear a while back and went over to electronic music (got a wicked modular synth built and am having the time of my life). BUT - through circumstances that cropped up I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have a custom Mayones made to my desired...

    FX8 and Fryette Power Station Problems and Conversation with Steven Fryette

    Hey Guys, So I talked with Fryette yesterday (I'm pretty sure it was Steven Fryette himself) as I've run into an issue with using my FX8 and Fryette Power Station together. As a result, Steven said they will be buying an FX8 from a local dealer who has an FX8 on hand and will be testing it to...

    Using FX8 With The Fryette Power Station

    Sorry to necrobump the heck out of this thread, but did anybody ever figure this out? I'm going to email Fryette.

    Hey folks. I've ignored a few members on this post now,and I won't be back here to answer questions or try to sort out some people's problems as it's a waste of my productive time. Suffice to say, I'll pretty much be regulating my posts to anything regarding the FX8 as it's the only piece of...

    As I recall, this is still a forum about discussing various aspects of the Axe-fx II. Still, you persist to stay in a thread you don't like. There's therapy for this type of stuff, you know.

    Well, as the post and subsequent thread is approaching 9,000 views it must hold some sort of interest for people who frequent the forum. I think it's considerably more bizarre that dudes who apparently don't like or don't see the point of it keep popping back in here to say so, which only serves...

    I've been around, as I still have an FX8. That thing is pretty friggin' sweet. Still have to order some humbuster cables so I can set it up "right" but even just using regular TS cables gets pretty good results. Very quiet and transparent! And flexible to boot! I want to point out that at no...

    You misunderstand. While admittedly I care nothing for your music, IRs, production, etc., that was not what I meant. Your unsolicited opinion is what is not needed or wanted from me. And yet, your knee-jerk narcissistic response was basically "it's perfect for me so you don't know what you're...

    Amps are incredibly loud. LOL. Yes, I can mic my cab, but my music space operates mostly as a mixing area. I don't have a separate treated room to put a cab in, and my dog would hate me for it anyway. Also, with the great impulse responses available in this day and age (long gone are the...

    I was using the Fryette to power my axe. Imo it's the best power amp for the axe. Now I'm using it for it's reactive load. And it's great.

    Keep in mind "the search" is a very complex process, especially when it comes to amps. I had a Single Rectifier Solo come up for a KILLER deal about a week before I found the 5150. I went to the shop it was located in. It was in great condition considering it's age. I had heard some really great...

    I'm failry utilitarian when it comes to music with guitar, but I have a specific notion of what I'm after. Everybody said "Why do you tune down to a flat isn't b enough?" And I'm like "it's in my vocal range". When I took all the tone pots out of my guitars people were like "Why would you do...

    Oh yeah. There are many totally valid and purposeful reasons for the axe fx and I get why people use it. No matter what way you go it's an amazing time to be a musician. Especially a guitarist.

    It gets close but it's not on the money. And it's not like my tones were despicable or anything. I got lots of compliments actually. But I found myself ultimately being distracted by elements of the way it responded and sounded and it bothered me to a big fault. I don't mind the limitations...

    No I won't be going back, and frankly the last person I'll ever take tone advice from is you. Good try though.
