    Can anyone help me replicate this tone on an Axe FX

    People, this guy is a troll. Stop feeding him. He asked for the tone from 0:00 to 0:06. It's silence!! The song only starts after that. @Admin M@, please close this thread!

    Merry 2016 Christmas (Nuclear Tone)

    Merry Christmas to everyone in this forum, specially to @FractalAudio who made this God-like rack that the AxeFx II is :D Here's my version of "Holy Night" with a short message in the ending (Merry Christmas, in Portuguese). I'll be uploading the Preset-Cab Bundle, if anyone is interested.

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 6.02 Public Beta

    Thanks Cliff. I thought so! When playing alive, though, I use both Guitar Cab and FRFR. Any chances of moving the Speaker Driver to the Cab Block? Or make a copy to have on them both? Idk

    Raw amp sounds - anyone know how to get them?

    Maybe something related to Master Volume? Sometimes we forget and Increase the master volume to maximum, since the output volume can be lowered. Master volume at high settings can smooth things out. IMHO

    Can the Axe Fx emulate the in the room "thump"?

    Exactly how others said: - Null mic model, bump proximity - Turn the exciter up on preamp, in cab block - Adjust Reverb to sound similar But also I've found out that adjusting the Low Frequency resonance on speaker tab to match the IR you're using, and bumping Speaker Drive around 50% can...

    Is there a way to use FX Loop for both CAB+FRFR and inserting effects on the Loop?

    Hello people. I'm gonna start playing with a new band soon, that uses all sorts of acoustic/electric sounds, as well as some synths, so i'll be using my GR55. Usually I send Output 1 to FOH and use FX Loop to send a signal to my CAB. This way I have more control on each volume. The question is...

    Permanent hiss/ sough

    It usually happens when you have a gainy amp on the amp block. When the master is turned up, the hiss appears, so it would in the real world. Try turning the gate on, see if this helps. If it helps, then I think this is the problem.

    Comp vs multicomp? (Solo Dallas Schaffer Replica)

    AxeFx vs. Amplitube 3 (Tone Match)

    I must agree with you. I was just blown away by how good Amplitube 3 sounds. I was used to Guitar Rig 5 before. The comparison was just to show it can get pretty similar to the AxeFx (At least in high gain scenarios).
