    AXE FXIII Live Tips Anyone?

    The Axe III is seriously more powerful. Your ability to use channels will not transfer from the Axe II. I would take some time to learn about your options, they are vastly superior now. More versatility in most areas. The Performance screen is invaluable for live use, IME. 10 options at your...

    SKB Travel Case for Axe-Fx III and FC-12

    SKB Travel Case for Axe-Fx III and FC-12

    OK, so my flight weight at the scale of Southwest Airlines counter was EXACTLY 50.0lbs. Axe III and 2 Shure SLX4 wireless receivers. It's an SKB 4 space rack inside foamed outer shell. Had to carry my FC6 and other stuff in a separate suitcase, not even an extra OZ available. That said...

    SKB Travel Case for Axe-Fx III and FC-12

    Just a quick update. Took the SKB travel 4 space out to gigs this weekend. Not fly, yet I wanted to give it a whirl in a live situation. No problems, nice wheels and decent handle. I did like being able to lift out the rack, and I only had to plug in power and XLRs. Oh, and a cable to my FC6. I...

    SKB Travel Case for Axe-Fx III and FC-12

    I just purchased the 4 space travel case from SKB, the one from the pic above. The real issue is the weight. The Kemper is less weight than the Axe III I believe. When I put my Axe III in the case and it’s already at 43lbs. 50 is airline MAX. The case with the Axe III and my wireless is coming...

    You guys are certainly correct, not trying to be logical I'm just saying 2 Axe III's are happiness :D #GOALS

    Firmware upgrades, general question

    Personally, I tend to upgrade as soon as I can. Meaning, NOT right before a gig, yet as soon as I have a few moments to check presets and make adjustments. Firmware updates are NOT frivolous and DO represent and support more evolution of the product. I appreciate this as part of the Fractal...

    Weird color ring behavior

    Thanks for the reply BryantP Yep, EZ page. Then I push the switch and it's white. When I leave EZ page it's red if I hit the switch. Just kinda weird. Looks like per preset override is default enabled, so it's on

    Weird color ring behavior

    So I was programming FC-6 today and when I set the switch to toggle between scene 1 and scene 2, there is no problem, color ring is red as is default. However, when I do the same thing with the next switch, set to toggle between scene 3 and scene 4, the color ring shifts to white. Same thing...

    Did my first show with the Axe III and FC-6 a little while ago. Flawless operation!! Great footprint, easy as pie. Still on the waitlist for a FC-12, so at the moment I am STOKED to have the FC-6. I can really see advantages of owning BOTH of these controllers. Enjoy!!

    Hey there, Cool tones and nice tune all around. I would be interested in doing something similar as far as set-up. Currently I just run things into my Apogee Duet and directly into Logic. The idea you have is great, yet I've never done anything like that. I have an Axe III and some great amp...

    Fractal AX8 bank per song, preset for intro, verse, chorus, bridge, solo

    I am not advocating anything specifically, the OP was asking about options, versatility and what "CAN" be done. Regardless, the AX8 can do a bunch. As was mentioned, ALWAYS "level" your presets, no matter how many or what use use...the VU meters in the AX8 can work well for that. Austin Buddy...

    Fractal AX8 bank per song, preset for intro, verse, chorus, bridge, solo

    First of all, play around a bit and see how things work. Everyone has different needs and desires, AND the AX8 is quite flexible. I have tried and “used live” a variety of options with the AX8. I usually don’t need 4 amps for anything, so that’s a non-issue. It’s easy enough to change presets...

    How many Axe-Fx processors do you own?

    I have owned MANY Fractal units along the way...my reality is always have a spare for the current gigging unit...including wireless and other items as well. Although, I have never needed to use ANY spare at a gig, it has been close a couple of times. So, currently I have 2 AX8’s for regular...

    Loud pop noise when switching between scenes

    This is an EXCELLENT explanation Moke, THANKS I’ll have to run through a few of my presets that pop or have artifacts, I wasn’t clear about how the interaction matters, but that just helped me to understand, thanks again brother. YOU my friend are a Fractal WIZARD :D
  46. GtarLover

    Need More Gain Stages

    Welcome to the club :D Many have mentioned scenes and scene controllers. These are two different concepts that you MUST understand completely to get the most out of your AX8.

    Poll: Where do you use your Axe-Fx III mostly?

    I’d have to agree. This is how I’ve run my controllers as well. For me, regardless of which unit I’m using, my scene 1 is my rhythm sound, scene 3 is clean, scene 5 is lead. Then if there are alternative rhythm, lead, or cleans, they live in the “even” scenes 2, 4, 6. With this I don’t need...

    The new Axe III firmware has addressed many of the issues of the pitch shifter. Many have remarked the need for the "Drop" is gone. However that's for the Axe III.

    Wireless IEM systems - which one to buy / avoid ??

    +1 on the MiPRO909. I moved from the older MIPRO 808 (kept it as a spare) and the 909 is GREAT!! As was mentioned, all digital and DUAL antenna...this is key for reception. There are some decent deals and if you're looking at the Sennheiser it is LESS $$ for the dual antenna 909. YMMV Here's a...

    Atomic CLR Vs. Tube Amps (4c method) for Live shows?

    OK Gustavo, No, I'm running Out 1 XLR's directly to the FOH and running Out 2 OR Out 1's 1/4" to the CLR, when used. Depends on what's needed at the gig...sometimes my drummer likes to grab a direct feed to a mixer by him for his own in-ears. In this case he will usually get a 1/4" off of OUT 1...

    Matrix GT1000FX vs Seymour Duncan Power Stage 170

    There are many individuals with different opinions on this. For me it really comes down whether you need stereo or can live with mono.
