    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 12.08 Public Beta 3

    Wouldn't it be cool to implement the virtual capo also in the global settings menu besides in the pitch block ? The guitar tuning could be changed for all presets easily without having to add a block in each preset you need to use with a different guitar tuning. Any thoughts?

    Matching of Master Volume and Preamp Gain

    Well it was my ears who said it was right...:) I tried to match this user preset with his recordings and raising the input trim was the right choice for my setup...you are absolutely right, there are no correct settings !!!

    Matching of Master Volume and Preamp Gain

    Anyway, thanks to everybody joining in...the answer I was looking for was raising the input trim...the reaction between MV and preamp gain had not to be tweaked to achieve the desired results. Can anybody explain why I had to raise my input trim? Is the output of my PUs weaker than the ones used...

    Matching of Master Volume and Preamp Gain

    well this is subjective...I know...correct amount of MV which corresponds to correct amount of preamp gain.
  16. L

    Matching of Master Volume and Preamp Gain

    Talking about the MV. I owned real amps before, but never an amp modeler.

    Matching of Master Volume and Preamp Gain

    That makes sense...just tried it and it improved a lot...raised the input trim and tadada there it was :) What does it mean when I have to increase my input trim of that user preset? Is the output weaker of my PUs? Do I need to tweak the MV trim as well ?

    Question regarding Preamp Dynamics

    Question regarding Preamp Dynamics

    Question regarding Preamp Dynamics

    Hehe...So you are also elimininating noise via preamp dynamics ?
  40. L

    Question regarding Preamp Dynamics

    Thanks, up to now I did not notice any difference between noise gate and expander regarding noise elimination.
  41. L

    Question regarding Preamp Dynamics

    I always noticed a tone impact of the noise gate especially with my high gain presets, this seems to be gone with the expander approach. I really start to appreciate preamp dynamics :-)
  42. L

    Question regarding Preamp Dynamics

    Thanks, Mr Fender...so do the advantages of the expander approach prevail from your perspective in order to get rid of noise and leave the tone unchanged? Could not identify any negative aspects for the expander approach up to now.
  43. L

    Question regarding Preamp Dynamics

    Got it, thanks !!! My first impression after this "discovery" is that this "expander effect" seems to be less "brutal" than a noise gate...and it seems to be very efficient for getting amp buzz under control. Especially as a gate is a static gain control while an expander is a variable gain...

    Question regarding Preamp Dynamics

Can anybody kindly explain the correlation...

For mixing and mastering I then turn off the low latency mode. Don't know whether cubase has a similar feature... Sorry, am not at home right now...
