    Using an FRFR for live performance? What's your output level strategy?

    Unity Gain: a term used when establishing the balance between pieces of audio equipment. The idea is that input should equal output, level-wise. Audio that goes into a device at one level and comes out of that device at the same level is said to be at unity gain. simply turning up the AX8...

    Amp sims have low gain and little-to-no distortion?

    ok that's all i was asking. sounded like you only tried one amp. can you try using physical Input 2 or Input 3 on the rear, and be sure to change the Input Block on the Preset grid. just as a test. do these other inputs react the same way?
  23. chris

    Having sound issues with a downloaded patch

    you said the sound is stopping at the Amp block? remember the current amp type, then choose another amp type, then choose the first one again.
  24. chris

    Do you use an OD in front of a hard rock amp tone?

    the Amp block now has a selectable Drive Boost, which can do the job of that drive block/pedal. maybe it has that on? the main purpose for it with real amps back in the day was to limit the amount of low frequency going into the amp. that's why the Gain was down but the Level all the way up...

    Amp sims have low gain and little-to-no distortion?

    sure. but have you tried another amp anyway? solving problems doing the same thing might not lead to solutions. try an obvious high gain amp like the Friedman HBE. if that sounds clean, then something is going on in the signal path.
  29. chris

    Having sound issues with a downloaded patch

    check for Controllers. click Controller in Axe Edit top left, then Modifiers near the very bottom of that lower edit part. probably some volume control. click it in that list, it will go to the modifier, just set Source to NONE for now. here's an old video on the topic:

    Do I use instrument cables or speaker cables?

    Instrument cables. Speaker cables are only used between power amps and speakers. On a powered speaker, you’re plugging into a mini-mixer on that speaker.

    Sure. But how will you know what the switch does when you press it? Easier to forget that than to play a note on guitar and hear where you are. Just explaining the current concept.

    FC cables what brand?

    [Video] Perform Tab tutorial

    a thought of saving has been suggested in the main 5.09 Beta thread. there are functions assigned to push, listed there on the screen. i don't think the Axe currently has any "save just that parameter" logic, so it'd probably save the entire preset like normal.

    Noise Gate settings for speed metal/high gain

    Noise Gate settings for speed metal/high gain

    a Gate doesn't seek out noise. if the noise is just as loud as the guitar signal, you can't really help it. find the source of the noise and fix that.

    Increasing Input Drive w. Pedal, but limiting volume increase

    that shouldn't be the reason for that. max being lower than min just means it's louder when the pedal is heel down, and quieter when the pedal is toe down. any non-linearities come from the fact that the Drive amount may not increase the volume in a linear manner. this is exactly why similar...
  65. chris

    Increasing Input Drive w. Pedal, but limiting volume increase

    connect the same pedal to the Level in the Drive block, reverse the Min and Max so Min is higher value than Max, while setting those boundaries to what you want to achieve.
  66. chris

    How many amps possible per preset?

    yes. channels are separate "instances" of the entire block. they can be completely different, or they could be the same, or just have minor differences. they're separate. there are 2 amp blocks in the Axe3, so 2 amps can be active at the same time.

    When recording, are you guys using effects or adding effects later with plugin (or reamp with Fractal effects)?

    if the effect is part of the "tone" or performance, then i record with it, like a dotted 8th delay or a reverb pad that reacts to how i'm playing. if the effect is to "color" the sound or help with the mix, i tend to add it later, either reamp or just run the track through the effect. i think...
