    Build a rock rig in 5 minutes

    Just goes to show, no endless tweaking needed. People get too wrapped up in all the functionality of the Axe FX that they become intimidated, and the first thing I tell them, just because there are a bajillion controls doesn't mean you have to use all of them. Great Work!

    Create an IR that's just a simple filter/EQ curve

    If you have a daw you could just hook the Axe up spidf and record the preset with the filter applied to a track in your DAW and then just route the playback back out to the Axe to create a tone match, then save as IR.

    Axe-Fx III - Why use SPDIF?

    If you run both in and out you can then reamp using digital connections. If your have no need for reamping then just the out would be fine. While an rca cable will work, you really want to get a proper spdif cable.

    Axe-Edit III 1.00.09

    found a minor bug in the cab block. If you turn smoothing up and then double click it to bring it back to zero, the sound does not change when it goes to zero. you have to physically turn it up an back down to get it to truly go to zero. Hope that makes sense.
