    Need help to identify *this* version of Mustang Sally

    Reverb Hold - is there a way to "flush the buffer"?

    I'm using a II XL, and have a preset with a reverb hold function which works pretty much the way I want it to (thanks Simeon for providing the initial preset with the right block and behavior). However, my issue is that when I switch to that preset and activate the reverb block with the hold, it...

    Recommendation for an IR good for acoustic *and* high gain?

    Disclaimer: I use an Axe-FX II XL (not a three). I have a swiss-army-knife preset that allows me to morph between a (poor man's) acoustic simulated sound and a searing high(er) gain lead (with a humbucker super-strat). It all works wonderfully, but I needed to add more bells and whistles (and...

    How many db boost for lead solos?

    Almost all my presets use a 3 db boost for leads / solos, but it now seems like it's not quite enough... I know, I know, trust your ears and do what sounds good, but I'm curious whether there is a "standard" or some kind of rule of thumb or common practice for x amount of boost for leads. I use...

    Humidifier for (acoustic) guitar room?

    Greetings all, My acoustic guitars are screaming in agony in the dry winter climate (Canada). I ordered a small cool-mist thingy from Amazon, and it's more of a placebo, with no measurable increase in ambiant humidity. Looking through other Amazon offerings, I am appalled at the enormity on...

    Any good source for serapate (isolated) guitar tracks from classic album recordings?

    I'm really bad a tweaking presets. What sounds good when I'm tweaking sounds like crap in the mix when rehearsing with the band. I've come to realize I don't realaly know what I'm looking for, and I'm probably filling too much space in the audio spectrum, thereby ending up with mud. Since I...

    Old "newbie" to scenes needs help

    I'm an old-timer (Ultra, then II-XL), but never used scenes as I didn't feel I needed them because I was using one-preset-per-song philosophy. In an effort to get up-to-speed with technology and try a different approach, I want to use a single "kitchen sink" preset and, of course, I'll need...

    FRFR recommendation for Axe-Fx III (not the Atomic CLR)

    +1 for the RCF, great sounding and very reliable. Its ergonomics are the absolute worse, with a stupidly horrible handle, and annoying weight distribution, but once you play through it, you immediately forgive the Italians for such a bad design.

    Hmm, hadn't thought of that... As long as it meets the main criteria (killer sounds and availability of free downloadable presets), then I think it would be wise to consider a controller and laptop with (I assume?) a soft synth?

    FREE CAB PACK: ML Legendary Times (2018)

    Forgive my ignorance but how on earth do you download these? The link brings me to dropbox, and from there I can preview the pdf file but cannot do anything with the IR files (and the only dropbox option is to save the html page, not the files). Help???
