    It's been so long since I got my Axe III that I forgot a couple of tweaks I made to suit my needs. A few days ago I received my new Turbo and I really want to change the preset # format from 0000 for the first preset to 0001 for the first preset but I've completely forgotten how I did it. Any...

    Updating the FC's?

    A question for the enlightened....is it just me or is there a way to update both my FC-6 & FC-12 at the same time. Up to this point the only way I've found to update each of the FC's is to connect them one at a time to the Axe III and run the FC update. I'm not complaining, both my FC-6 & FC12...

    New FC 12 ....... switch LED problem.

    Anybody had this problem before? From the moment I plugged in the FC 12 my switch # 6 (bottom row right) LED's aren't right. Of the four LED's surrounding the switch the top right LED color doesn't always match the other three LED's, but only on certain colors. On some colors the other three...

    My FC-12 was listed as 'OUT FOR DELIVERY' at 8:26 a.m. this morning..........and thanks to those total complete FUCK-UPS at UPS is now re-scheduled for delivery on Tuesday. which means my FC-12 will have spent 2 days traveling from FAS to my home town and FOUR FUCKING DAYS sitting in a FUCKING...

    # of FC's for purchase?

    When in fact I get the "INVITE" to purchase an FC-12 is there a set limit as to how many I can buy? I really would prefer to get two for the rig I have planned.

    Why do we stray?

    I just don't get it, some time back at the birth of both the AX8 and the FX8 there were several folks who quite simply rejoiced at the combination of the two and what was to be had by the combining of the best of both, and then all of a sudden the entire idea just seemed to die. I just got back...

    AX8+FX8= what?

    So has anybody gone there? I've got both now and I'm curious why I haven't heard more about this combination. I'd like to hear from folks that have been there/done that, as my first attempt was a crash and burn. I'm referring to how to connect, in's/outs etc. My way of thinking is to use...

    How do I?

    I'm sure this has been posted before but I don't have a clue as to where to find the answer. Say I have a particular favorite preset that I want to copy to a new Preset #, so as to modify it in it's new location without disturbing the original preset? I'm sure this must be possible, I just don't...

    S/PDIF converter?

    Does one exist? My Axe Fx II XL+ has S/PDIF in/out jacks that operate at a set rate of 48k but my Tascam 24 track recorder operates at a set rate 44.1k, is there any way to reconcile the two so I can in fact use the S/PDIF out of the Axe Fx to record directly to the Tascam?

    Hooked up my new Axe Fx II XL+ to axe edit tonight for the first time. After downloading the proper driver I had it working.....briefly, until my Axe Fx completely seized up. I have no idea what I did wrong. Even though it is powered up none of the front panel controls work. Since it's so...

    My new Axe Fx IIXL+ is just a matter of hours away now. Does anybody know if the MFC-101 ever goes on sale? I've got a GC Pro, but I think I'd rather have the MFC-101.

    a single preset on the FX8? I really liked P: A1 S:1 the first original preset on the FX8 MkII but when I first got the FX8 I used it to learn how to mod various efx and basically learn how the machine worked and now it is totally obliterated and I can't get the original preset back. Is there...

    Output volume on the FX8?

    Last thursday I got a new Seymour Duncan Powerstage 700 amp for use with my FX8 but I'm having a problem with to little output from the amp. It's supposed to have 700 watts per channel on hand but I know for a fact it's not even close so I'm guessing it's because the outputs of the FX8 is way...

    Bass ackwards?

    Just got my FX-8 Mk II an hour ago but something that struck me immediately is that all the presets seem to be set up for for the original version as far as efx layout goes. In other words on the foot-switch screen the efx1-4 should be where 5-8 are and vice versa. It seems as though using it as...
