    What is the base sampling rate?

    @Rex : Thank you for the explanation. @Smittefar : It is physically impossible to have a latency of 0 ms <- speed of light.

    What is the base sampling rate?

    I'm 28 years old, and I don't here any differences between 48 kHz and 96 kHz processed material. But I do remember something about filter slopes getting worse near the Nyquist frequency.

    Connect amp speaker to Axe

    Since we already are a little bit off topic here. On an instrument cable with a TS-plug, the wire is soldered to the tip and the shielding is soldered to the sleeve. On a speaker cable, tip and sleeve each are soldered to a separate wire – no shielding, though.

    Connect amp speaker to Axe

    Scammer alert

    Is my Axe acting up?

    Also, try setting the input impedance to a fixed value (e.g. 1M).

    Is my Axe acting up?

    In response situation 1: Switching scenes while connected to Axe-Edit via USB will take longer than when disconnected. Also, check the value of the input impedance (the first noise gate block). Is it fixed or set to auto?

    First post... Hi and lots of questions.

    OK, let me play the role of the devil's advocate. If you are easily overwhelmed with a lot of digital knobs and controls, you might want to stick to real amps. The Axe-Fx II is easy to use and pretty straight forward, but the fact that you can almost tweak everything might cause some...

    Buying new PC - specs/suggestions

    You're right, I am quite nit-picky when it comes to PSUs. OK, let me rephrase. I think one should prefer high quality PSUs over high powered ones. In other words, I'd pick an "expensive" 500 W PSU over a cheap 800 W one.

    Buying new PC - specs/suggestions

    I assume you don't play any video games. Use logicalincrements.com and the list below: (CPU) AMD Ryzen R5 1600X (Mainboard) pick a Z370 chipset that suits your needs (e.g. USB 3.1 ports etc.) (GPU) GT 1030 for a single screen, non-gaming setup (PSU) pick a high quality PSU with around 500 W...

    Live amp solution for the Axe Fx II

    ^ This. The AX8 can do anything a guitar player needs in an average band context, IMO. Judging from your description, I don't think you'd need the extra processing power and some extra effect blocks from the Axe-Fx II.
