    FM9 Wishlist

    Not exactly an FM9 request but I'd like an in-line format of the FC6 to put in front of the FM9. Basically, just a strip.

    I'll never understand what makes it so difficult...

    The Ir's is where it ''can'' take more time. But for exploration of the various amps and getting to learn how they sound individually, you could just stick with the IRs already in the presets. Now 2 more things. Developing your ears is very critical. What works in a mix isn't always what...

    Let's see those FM3 rigs!

    Got the FM3 10 days ago. Here"s a few pics and a little rig rundown. There's a power supply under the FM3 and will add a ''loopy'' clone I'm currently building ( little device that turns the ''function switches'' of the Mastermind into a 2 loop switcher ). I really wanted to get a FC6 but...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 12.09

    Ohhh that firmware is gooooood!!!! I like really like how the new power amp algorithm interacts with the drive block. Lately, every new firmware i'm like ''that's it they really nailed it'' but somehow Fractal manage to make it a bit better. Sort of like when you go see the optometrist for...

    Help : Instrument in not working

    I'm having an issue with the front input. It happened when I plugged at sound check today and I ended up using the rear input. I'm on a fly date near Portland, Oregon and since I'm from Montreal, I thought that if it needs assistance, I'd rather send it from here. I was wondering if it was...

    Am I the Only One Not Using High or Low Cuts Anymore?

    Yup! Been re-working my main presets and a few new ones for an upcoming project. Really happy with the results... Once you got the right Ir it's very easy to dial-in great tones. And I rarely use the advanced parameters... Been on-board the Fractal train for 5-6 years...

    Wish REAL compatible spring reverb

    Not my intention to argue but isn't it an amp effects loop, or the point between the preamp and power amp, where the reverbs usually is, Line Level? Maybe there's a part I don't get. After all the AxeFX loops do send signal. It's all a bit over my head electronically. If you could enlighten...
  22. carlguit

    Wish REAL compatible spring reverb

    Of course mate. I don't expect to just plug a tank and make it work. We'd need a dedicated block that you set to let's say : Out3 - Spring In - Spring out - In3. If you have a look at the schematic I posted earlier it's really not too complicated.
  23. carlguit

    Wish REAL compatible spring reverb

    Yes. I'll probably end up just buying the pedal and 1 or 2 tanks. I was just hoping to have the ''pedal '' part integrated in the Axe FX so we'd only need the ''tank'' part. We could do presets just like a regular block but with a little bit of external help. And the tank would fit perfectly...
  24. carlguit

    Wish REAL compatible spring reverb

    I wouldn't say lacking. It's just as good as any other emulations of a spring but IMHO it's not as close to the real-life counterpart as other blocks are, amps for instance. A few months ago, I tried to replicate my friend's AC-30 and Deluxe reverb. I had the Axe, Eventide H9 and Strymon Big...

    Wish REAL compatible spring reverb

    After checking demos of the Anasounds reverb, I've been ''gasing'' about real springs. It seems to me that it'd be doable ( and probably not that expensive ), to build a real spring tank ( or few different sizes ) that would connect to the in/outs of the Axe. Basically Fractal would need a new...

    Yup I know! It's been over-asked. ;) I'm just joking myself since this weird coincidence happened... I know I'm pushing my luck. Personally I don't really mind the Klon. Had an Archer on my board for a few months and while I understand why people like them, it's not exactly my thing. I...

    That'd be incredible for sure. Though, I wonder how many users would go that deep. Realistically, that'd be nice to have more variations of certain circuits. Timmy - Venuram Jan Ray, Lovepedal Amp 11... Blues Breaker - KOT, Morning Glory Micro Amp - Dod 250

    Atomic CLR Neo MkI MkII

    So i've been actively looking at the CLRs. Though there isn't a lot of information and Atomic aren't very good at answering e-mails. I've sent 4 e-mails in the last 3 months and no answer. Basically is there such a thing as MkI or mkII when it comes to Neo or are all Neo's mkII Does mkII...

    Since we're talking about rolling your volume to clean up the sound. Who uses a treble bleed here? I hesitate to do the mod.

    Wish Next gen mfc request?

    You're best option is to get a cheap midi switcher like a decibel eleven or g-lab. That's what I do. I have the G-lab and run 4 pedals in the chain ( actually use it before the Axe FX, as the impedance of the Axe's effect loop would need to be converted ). So I have the Axe-FX plus a mini...

    Wish More amp-in-a-box pedals!

    You can do that with the Axe Fx or Ax-8 … not the Fx-8 as it doesn't have amp modelling. I tried that technique with the Axe-fx. Only works with certain amps. I've seen that thread a while ago. Though, the amps that depends on Power Amp distortion ( i.e. Marshalls ) aren't gonna sound right.
