    What's your method for mixing IRs?

    No method to my madness - one thing I will say, I think there is a difference in sound/volume when using 1 or more cab(s) and the other slots are "empty" as opposed to those other slots being occupied by a cab but just muted. Just my observation. For instance, If I am only using 2 cab slots, I...

    High Gain Issues

    What do you have your III connected to? Cabs? Studio Monitors? I usually go with what I posted above, TS808 (gain 0, level 10) into 5153 RED Gain 8.5 or so, bass and mids lowered a bit, treble up a bit, bright switch on. For IRs, I use a lot of Ownhammers - there are some loaded on your III, but...

    It may be a combination of several things. First, what amp model are you using and second, which IRs have you been trying? What type of sound are you going for?

    I have converted a ton of .wav to .syx impulse responses via cab lab lite and loaded them onto my III. Works just fine. I used the mini tool to load them after conversion. I would just be careful to not have Axe Edit open when you load them. I would bring up Axe Edit, look for the number of the...

    Honest Thoughts On Axe-Fx III, II and AX8?

    I cannot comment on whether or not one is better than the other, but I can say in the few weeks I have owned my III, I have never been happier with my tone - and I didn't have to tweak for hours to get there. That's just my .02.
