    What the !$%# am I missing? Can't get the freakin' usb driver to work.

    Ok, I'm not new to the Axefx, Axe Edit, the drivers etc, but have been away awhile. I recently picked up an XL and simply cannot get the driver to load correctly and Axe Edit to connect with the Axefx. I'm on a PC with Win 7 64 bit. I've gone over the notes with the latest driver installer...

    My little musical effort for world peace.

    Hi guys, I've been away a while hitting the wood shed and doing what I told myself I'd do years ago....record a complete album. Well it's done and now I'm working on some video ideas. This song is very political and personal to me and I hope it will resonate with a lot of people in the US...

    Am I doing something wrong or is this a glitch?

    I have been out of the loop for a while with the AxeII, but spent some time with it yesterday and updated banks, axedit and firmware to the latest. I would have posted this in the bugs forum, but not sure if it's a bug or just me missing a detail. When I select a factory preset in Axedit, it...

    Horror movie trailer with part of my lil Axe2 tune in it.

    I took my first shot at making a movie trailer for my friend's low budget suspense/horror movie "Brutal". I had one day to learn brand new video editing, software and record the sfx and music on my DAW computer, which I learned is no match for serious video editing. I used Omnisphere for...

    Which amp parameters are irrelevant if you're using a real power amp and cab?

    With the power amp off in global settings and using a real power amp and cab, which parameters in the amp have no affect of the sound? thanks, Steve

    Song for the movie "Brutal" finished-Axefx2 hybrid set up

    Hi guys, Just got my little tune back from mastering tonight after a day of delivering late xmas packages for UPS. (That's right...UPS...you can blame me for everything Cliff :) My friend just finished filming a suspense/horror movie titled "Brutal" and I wrote this song based on the script...

    Anyone tried reamping to create a duplicate lead guitar solo?

    I'm working on a solo for a song I wrote and am going to be recording it soon. Just wondering if any of you have reamped your lead guitar solo to create a larger than life sound with two or more lead guitar tracks. Did it sound good and useable or just cheesy? Did you use the same amp/cab or...

    What's the best way to...

    I had my Ultra for a few years, but didn't have a foot controller and now I'm working on getting the Axe2 set up with the MFC and presets etc. I'm a bit of a noob in the controller and modifier dept so here goes... Is there a way to set up the Axefx2 "globally" so that whenever a patch has a...

    Having serious problemos updating to firmware 1.02...could use some help.

    Ok, first off...I've owned an Ultra for a few years and updating firmware isn't new to me so I'm a bit baffled as to what I'm doing wrong or missing. Here's the gear/software info: Win7 OS computer going usb into M-Audio midisport 4x4 and going in and out of AxefxII on channel C. I'm using...

    Thanks for the manual!!

    Cliff and the Fractal team, I just wanted to say thanks for including a nice, thorough manual with the Axefx2. I hate it when I throw down a good sized chunk of money and get an "online" manual. It really looks like you guys put a lot into this and it's much appreciated. I've been taking it...

    Help me do a quality AxefxII experiment...

    I have an AxefxII on the way and want to do an experiment I meant to do a long time ago. I want to post a series of clips; some recorded with AxefxII direct, some with AxefxII into a tube power amp with mics etc and some with my Egnater M4 using various modules feeding a tube power amp into...

    Axe2 owners, if you get bored, could you please feed a new clip to the zoo animals?

    Just a shameless plea for anyone with an Axe2 to feed a new clip or two to the hungry zoo animals. Some have stated that it's much easier to dial in tones etc so it'd be cool to hear some tones nailed from some classic songs. One or any of these would be cool: -Intro to You really got...

    It's eerily quiet here!

    It seems in the last couple days, the activity here has quieted down a bit. I'm getting a vibe here similar to 1000 tarantulas in a tank who know the crickets are about to be dropped in for feeding. I'm starting to smell crickets...or is that the FAS guys' b.o. from working overtime? :)...

    Ebay is wacky!

    I'm sitting on my Ultra watching the market to see what they're going for and I'm having a hard time understanding what I've seen this week. An Axefx standard sold for $1,800 and an Ultra sold for a little over $1,400. Am I the only one who thinks this is a sign of the apocalypse? :)...

    Very, very SOON!

    Since "very soon" was said a few days ago, it has to be soon that we will get the emails very, very soon. By tomorrow, the units will likely ship ridiculously soon. :mrgreen:

    Need recommendations for a low wattage, tube power amp

    I'm in the market for a low wattage, tube power amp for recording and am hoping to get some recommendations on some I haven't heard of before. I have a Randall Rt2/50, which rocks, but I want something that rocks at a lower volume. :) The one's I've checked out so far are the Mesa 20/20 and...

    Anyone using a 3rd Power 15/30 power amp with their Axefx?

    I'm looking for a low wattage recording tube power amp and am weighing my options. The 3rd Power one looks like a great one, but am curious if anyone here is using one and how it's working out. Anyone? thanks, Steve

    Two new pop rock songs finished and open for reviews.

    Just had these two tunes mastered yesterday. I work full time so it's taken me months to get these two done. They're not perfect, but I think they at least get the idea across of the sound and feel of each song. The electric guitars play more of a support function in these kinds of songs...

    Ultra direct track beat out mic'ed cab in studio today...

    I was in a local studio today to have one of my songs mixed and did a little blind test on the mix engineer. The song has a lead part that plays throughout the choruses and I recorded a direct track from the Ultra and also two tracks from real mics and cab etc. I told the ME I just wanted him...

    Do you guys do any nudging of the track after reamping?

    Just curious if any of you have to nudge your audio regions after reamping to get them exactly in time with the original? I have done some reamping and am trying figure out how many ms of delay there is by the time it goes out of Pro Tools d/a to Axefx to mic pre and back into PT a/d. I've...

    Is it just me or is the Axexchange all but forgotten?

    I hadn't checked out the uploaded user presets on the Axexchange in a while until a few days ago. I was surprised how few new ones had been added since I added a bunch a while back. Am I missing something or are people getting away from uploading and sharing their presets on the Axechange...

    Did you guys get the email too? Whoohooo!!!!!!

    I guess Kohls is having a sale! Enough about that though. Does anyone know anything about when the Fractal pedal will be released? I couldn't resist. :twisted: cheers, Steve

    Some love for the SV Bass model

    This thing continues to amaze me. I just tried reamping a bass track through the Axefx using the SV bass and 8x10 cab and it sounds great with very little tweaking. I tried a bass through it a couple years ago and wasn't too thrilled with the results, but what I just heard was amazing. What a...

    Recording with the Atomic FR cabs

    I was just reading up on the Atomic FR passive cab and am curious if any of you have done any recording with one of these? Having a tweeter makes the idea miking (yes, that's how I spell it) up a cab much more complex. I'm sitting here with a Mesa 2x12 and a VHT 4x12 that I'm really not using...

    Tuner issue...could use some advice

    So I got this new tuner that clips on the guitar and can detect pitch from vibration or by using it's piezo pu. I used it for tuning my acoustic when recording a track for the song I'm working on. Now I find out that my Axefx tuner shows everything a little sharp when my other tuner shows...

    Is there much difference between Redwirez and Recabinet?

    I haven't done a ton with the importing of ir's etc, but am curious why there's a lot of talk about Redwirez and not much about Recabinet. For those of you who've tried both, do you feel one does a better job at getting a real cab sound and feel? Are they both pretty much the same, but just...

    Bank of "Cleans" and "Cleans with effects" are posted

    I just posted all the "cleans" presets from my reorganization project on the Axechange. They are in the J and K banks I believe. These are not a bunch of brand new presets that I custom made from the ground up. A lot of them are either stock presets or ones from the Axechange with some minor...

    New guys: Something that you may appreciate

    When I first got the Axefx, I thought it was awesome, but it seemed that everything had a ton of effects on and I wanted to hear a bunch of just raw amp tones. I'm in the process of getting a bunch of presets organized for recording and just uploaded my first bank of basically dry, raw amp...

    Play or record direct? Read on...

    I've spent the last week gathering, editing, creating and organizing and categorizing a ton of presets so I can have things very organized when recording. I absolutely LOVE the Axefx, but have always hated having to wade through tons of heavily effected presets to find a few raw gems. It...

    Just uploaded an Engl E570 preset...I think.

    I just spent about an hour a/b-ing and tweaking the axefx to get close to my Engl E570 pre. I just posted it to axexchange I think. I copied it from the scratch page and pasted it on the exchange page, bank H I think, then saved bank. Someone tell me if I did it wrong and I'll redo it...

    ...instead of the usual 10-pack of thong underwear, could you please send me one of those sweet midi foot controllers you've been working on? I won't tell anyone and I'll even send you around $500 for shipping. thanks, steve :mrgreen:

    What reamping method have you had the best success with?

    My latest song completed-Whaddaya think?

    I finally finished this one and will be pitching it to Bon Jovi as well as a male country artist, when I figure out who that will be. All the electric guitars are Axefx direct into PT. I'm not super happy with the mix because there's some pretty cool complementary guitar parts going on that...

    Are the compressors in this thing 'modelled" or what?

    I was just wondering if the compressors in this are modelled after any particular gear or just Cliff's spin on it. I don't know how much dsp it'd use, but I was thinking it'd be sweet to have models of, for example, an La2a and/or 1176 etc for compression. As great as the amp sims sound now...

    Two issues I've noticed since 7.04...

    Since the 7.04 update, which I absolutely love, I've had two recurring issues happening randomly with the axe. I've not been using the editor when these issues have occurred so I can remove that possiblility from the equation. -There is a lag time between when I turn a knob to adjust a...

    Will there ever be an Ultra Ultra?

    ...you know, one with a toaster oven? Seriously, I love the latest firmware and how great this thing sounds direct, but as many of you have noticed, that great sound comes with a little bit more of a cpu price. I'm totally ok with that. I'll take great tone and some basics over mediocre tone...

    What are your top 5 favorite cab IR's?

    Suggestion for the new controller if it's not too late

    I just saw the pics of the cad images for the first time and just have a small suggestion that would just be a minor tweak if he hasn't already ordered 10,000 units in parts. I have an Aphex exciter that's powered by an adaptor and right next to the jack on the back of the unit is a hole in...

    AxeFx meets an Engl E570 to promote a comic book!!

    Well, I took my first shot at putting sound, music and foley to video to help promote my friend's movie script and comic book graphic novel. It was a fun process and I learned a lot, but after whatever compression they did to it to get it up on the web, it sounds like ass in my opinion. It...
