    How loud is your frfr?

    We agreed on a 85db max stage volume, hence the original attraction to modelers. Although the CLR can easily be louder than a traditional 4x12 is desired.

    Run two Axe 3’s simultaneoly with an FC12?

    Presumably, one wire is power hot, one data hot with a shared ground. Perhaps there is a way to avoid the power hot on the second unit. You’d have to know how to use a multimeter and understand basic electricity prior to proceeding.

    Wet/Dry/Wet with 3 Yamaha HS8 studio monitors out of Axe-Fx III?

    I ran a true w/d/w live rig for many years with three 4x12s. The reasoning was simple, to maintain the pure analog tone of the amplifier. In the modeling world it would be pointless, hence why I’m only going stereo today.

    Why No Authentic Tab For Effects Types??

    You are using more capacity, which means the units might become obsolete sooner.

    Free FullRes Room IRs

    I believe distance is the major issue to be addressed. We all stand a different places in reference to our amplifiers, I’d imagine the dispersion at 36” away is vastly different than at 72”. Labeling of distance and whether direct or off axis should be included IMO.
