    Equally impressive bro... I personally love both units, you won't hear me shit on either one and i use them both almost daily for different applications. They both work for me, they're just different pieces of exceptional gear and you know your way around a metal tone so it's win-win for me...

    Usb issue...

    Hey guys.... So last week I disconnected my Axe II from my DAW and connected my AX8 to load up some 0wnhammer impulses. Upon disconnecting the AX8 and reconnecting the Axe II I've been experiencing issues. Firstly Rex discovered I had a corrupt preset when I had no output from the unit, I had...

    Hey Rex, Nothing from analog out, I tried feeding a CLR. The input meters on the face of the Axe show a signal, but no signal received by my DAW.

    My AX8 killed my Axe II mk II....

    Really hoping there's a simple fix I'm overlooking.... I have my Axe II connected to my pc/home studio but I also own an AX8. Last week I disconnected the Axe II and connected the AX8 to load up some Ownhammer ir's. Simple enough. I disconnected the AX8, reconnected the Axe II, and now nothing...

    Axe v Kemper (my first real life experience)

    I've been spending very little time tweaking myself lately. I usually set an amp to default settings and scroll some IR's til I get in the ballpark. Then it's a few basic adjustments and all's well. Before you know it the Axe FX will have an "Auto Tweak" function based on your playing habits...

    axe fx into amp head to cab?

    You could run the Axe into the effects loop. Some people disable the power modelling on the Axe, some don't. You should experiment to see what works for you. The Axe wiki has lots of info for ya!

    So, V14...

    Ha ha... yup. Cliff has spoiled me rotten. Like I'm not already in hi gain heaven!

    So, V14...

    This update has been the toughest to wait for personally... I've been hoping for a Savage since I got the Axe last Marathon Monday. Is this the first time the release notes were released this far in advance of the actual firmware? I can't fuggin wait!
