    Kirk Hammett with AXE-FX lll

    When I watch a live video I can’t really tell a difference between the Green LP and his Frankenstein or Ouija which have EMGs. I’m sure there is one but in a live mix I wouldn’t know in a blind test.

    Austin Buddy Presets fw 19.06

    Has anyone noticed a volume drop with the beta firmware? I'm pretty sure the last few iterations of fw 19 didn't really change much but I feel like there's a volume drop on some presets, especially the AB XTC Rig. Maybe I'm just now noticing from a few fw versions ago...or maybe it's in my head.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 19.06 Public Beta

    I’m liking this so far. One thing that would be really cool would be to set a tempo for each song that would override the default tempo of a preset. I usually only use a handful of presets but it’d be cool to have the tempo linked to the song.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware 19.00 Beta 2

    Go to amp models for 90’s Rock/Grunge

    More or less. I think for the JCM800 it’s just the preset with the drive tweaked. For the Ojai I mixed from the diff presets for clean to dirty.

    Go to amp models for 90’s Rock/Grunge

    I can’t since it’s from the Austin Buddy Live Gold pack. I can look later tho to tell you the cabs used. I think the only tweaks he does is on the authentic page though.

    Go to amp models for 90’s Rock/Grunge

    Yup that’s the key. Just pick something and go with it. I use 2 main amps for 90% of the songs I play. JCM80 and Ojai. I get a lot of mileage out of those 2 presets. I might try out the Blue/Red just to see how it goes live.
  21. E

    Go to amp models for 90’s Rock/Grunge

    I mostly use a JCM800 live for 90s stuff. I use the Hairy Brown Eye for AIC. I like the Bludotone too for stuff that needs smoother drive. Not really period accurate at all, but it sounds good and that's all that matters.

    no. You'd have to save each block separately. You could make a template preset that has those blocks already added and then you could amps, etc as you please.

    Why does a "side" Reverb block at the end of a chain, right before the output so different/great?

    This is all good info. I knew the mix for delay and reverb behaved the way they do for quite a while, what I didn't know was that the gain is still reduced of the dry signal even if the effect is bypassed if you have the block set to Mute Effect In. I just went crazy for 30 min trying to find...

    You really only have 2 choices because you can't run stereo through a mono PA. 1. Redo all presets to be in mono, this will include finding ways to beef up your sound that will sound good that way, micro-pitch, etc, might help, or maybe new combos of cab IRs. 2. Create 2 sets of presets. One...

    Naked amps vs Live Gold ( which is more suitable for home recording ?)

    When Naked Amps gets updated that would be my choice for recording. For those that say it’s dumb to buy presets, maybe they have all the time in the word to dial stuff in, but it’s nice to have 1,000 solid sounds accessible in seconds when you have other things to worry about.

    Wish Echo the Pedal1/Pedal2 MIDI CC position to the MIDI USB and to the MIDI Output

    Just to make sure I'm clear on what we currently can't do: So if I want to use an exp pedal connected to my FC12 to control say, an H9, that's not currently possible? But it IS possible to use the fc12 control switches to change presets bypass functions on an H9?

    Almost 2 months with no FW update...

    I'm glad there's been no updates. I'm always torn between wanting to get the latest and not wanting to redo my presets. The amps sound so good. I don't even know that there's much room for improvement of the effects, if any. Only thing I'd like to see is reverse reverb.

    Configuring at Axe-Fx 3 for wireless (e.g., differential line in on Input 2 "left")

    The shure QLXD says 2.9ms of latency. The Axe is 1ms. I don’t think an extra 3.9ms is making or breaking anyone. I don’t use the same presets to record as I do live so that’s not an issue. I’d think most people wouldn’t but maybe I’m mistaken.
  55. E

    Configuring at Axe-Fx 3 for wireless (e.g., differential line in on Input 2 "left")

    The high end shure ones are expensive enough. Very reliable though from all I’ve read. I guess I’ll see for myself. I think in a live situation any degradation from the ADA of the Shure wouldn’t be noticeable by even those with great ears.

    Configuring at Axe-Fx 3 for wireless (e.g., differential line in on Input 2 "left")

I'm just curious if anyone else has the same unit and if this is also how they had it set up. The...

    How do you monitor your Axe-Fx III?
