    AxeFx III - 4CM with On-Stage Cab and Stereo to FOH

    Hi All! I am planning on going down the 4CM rabbit hole with my B rig and would like to have my tube amp provide the amp tone and power an on-stage cabinet while sending a DI back into the AxeFX for the cab sim and then stereo to FOH? I tried searching but couldn’t find a specific schematic -...

    SiB Varidrive Pedal Alternative

    Does anyone have experience with the SiB Varidrive (Dean DeLeo uses one to boost his Vox in his live rig)? I would love to know if there is a sonic alternative in AxeFX. Thanks in advance! VM

    Live Workflow for Cover Bands - Song Lists vs Complex Presets

    I play in a 90’s cover band with about 60 or songs in the current rotation. I just finished re-creating all of my AxeFxII presets in the III, and the associated FC12 programming - and I am very impressed, especially withe the FC12 customization. I have been able to get the 60 songs into 5...

    FC12 Switch Sensitivity

    I love the customization of the FC12, but as I get to rehearsing and gigging with my newly acquired AXEIII/FC12 rig (coming from 10 years of the AXEII/MFC platform), I am a bit uneasy about FC12 switch sensitivity. On the MFC, I had to depress almost all the way down to actuate the switch; on...

    Shout Out to Support

    Over the weekend I was having an issue with my FC12 displaying information from the AXEIII. I emailed support on Saturday night and by Sunday afternoon we had the issue fixed (loose ribbon inside the FC). A big thanks to Mark Day and the Fractal team in providing an excellent experience on a...

    Matrix Amplification Customer Service

    I need to tell you about my customer service experience with Matrix Amplification. I have a 4-year-old Matrix GT100FX that I have run fairly hard with full-volume rehearsals and gigs - some outdoor shows in 110 degree heat. It has never even blinked an eye until a couple of weeks ago when it...

    Excellent Experience with Support and Service!

    For the first time since I purchased my Ultra and my Axe II I had to interact with the Fractal customer support and service team. I was having something squirrelly going on with my Output 1 feeds and couldn't fix the issue myself. I contacted support through the proper channels (not on the...

    Dean DeLeo and Stone Temple Pilots

    I am a Dean DeLeo junkie and have been asked about my live tones for STP. I posted these in another thread, but thought they may be useful here as well. I found the guitar-less backing tracks on the Interwebs. Here is a one-take recording of Crackerman. All of the guitars are AxeFx: the left...

    Do 11b Patches Need to be Created from Scratch?

    I am a bit confused on this (and since it is beta, there aren't release notes). If I am upgrading FW from 10.12 to 11b, do I need to re-create my patches from scratch, or can I just re-initialize the amp block and dial in to taste? Thanks.

    Unplanned Volume Boost with Bank Changes

    I a running AxeII 10.10 and MFC 2.18, and I am experiencing occasional volume boosts (about 3dB) when switching between banks in song mode. For example, if I am on Preset 1 in Bank 1 and then switch to Preset 2 in Bank 2, the volume is then boosted. If I then switch from that preset to another...

    My (not so) Huge Rack

    I posted this over at TGP and thought you all might be interested: I just revamped my gigging rack and thought some of you may be interested in my setup. First, I am a weekend warrior guitarist/singer in a modern rock band that does mostly covers and a few originals in bars and private...

    FW5.01 is not working with my MFC-101 *Solved*

    FW5.01 is not working with my MFC-101 I went from FW4.01 to 5.01 today and now my MFC is sending random program changes to the AxeFx. I am a 3 years user of Fractal products, so no noob here. I upgraded to the latest version of AxeEdit and the firmware loaded fine into the AxeFx. However, as...

    My NYC Pedal Board Specs

    For some reason over the past few months, I have been getting tons of PM's about my rather simple pedal board setup from NYC Pedal Boards. Instead of responding, and re-responding to each PM as they come in, I decided to just post everything here. Here is my simple setup: What I...

    Do You Think This Amp Will Have Enough Power??? [PICS INSIDE]

    :twisted Bwahahahahaha! Just picked this 1991 VHT Classic up last week for a price I couldn't pass up. I would love to hook up 8 4x12's and see what happens. 120W per side of EL34 goodness.

    Exp Pedal Function Based Upon Effect Bypass State?

    I am having a bit of trouble figuring out if what I want to do is even possible. I normally have a Mission Exp. pedal controlling the volume of Output 1. However, on some patches I like to use an octave whammy (from the pitch block) to bend the pitch up a full octave. Is it possible to to...

    MFC sends preset data to all channels by default?

    So I have had my MFC for about a month now and have it pretty well programmed in AxeFx mode for all of my guitar needs. Now I am incorporating other MIDI devices into my rig and the first is a Vocalist Pro which I use for mainly for vocal compression and high harmonies that I can't reach (I sing...

    Piezo/Clean Tone Test Clip

    Here is a short clip I recorded (intro to "Long Day" by Matchbox 20) for friend who wanted a sample of a clean tone from the AxeFx. It was the first take from some stock patches I made. http://soundclick.com/share?songid=9530980 The Left Channel is the piezo pickup from an EBMM Axis SS; the...

    Mesa 20/20 - anyone using it with their AxeFx?

    ... or are EL84-based amps just not a good option with the AxeFx. Just curious. :)

    Patch for faking bass ... please help.

    I have tried to search the forum, but as we know, it is not the most user friendly application. I am looking for a patch to track rough bass lines into demo/idea recordings while using my non-bass guitars. I know I could go out and get a cheap bas for this, but I believe an acceptable patch has...

    Non-European Gordius users ... I need your input.

    Last year I used a Liquid Foot Jr. extensively, and once I got the hang of it, I thought it was great. It had a small footprint and extensive list of functions. However, last November, a stage accident damaged one of my LED's and Jeff offered to fix it for me. So I sent the LF Jr. to Jeff and it...

    Official MFC-101 Wait List?

    Does such an animal exist? I tried searching the forum, but really didn't find anything. If it does exist, could you please point me in the right direction? 6 weeks of silence from Jeff at Liquid Foot has me frustrated. I am beginning to think the MFC-101 might be available before another LF...

    Liquid Foot Jr. and the Boss FS-5U for Tap Tempo

    I am trying to use my Boss FS-5U wired into Exp 1 to control the Tap Tempo. I have tried almost every configuration I can think of, but I am having no luck. I am not a midi noob, but I am obviously missing something here. Has anyone done this before and can shed some light on the programming...

    Axe-Edit and Foot Controller - Routing Issue

    Last night I was setting up the Axe Editor and realized that I have to unplug my Midi Mate to free up the "midi in" port to send data or update to the Axe. I'm not exactly sure why I didn't see that before. Is there any work around to keeping both devices connected?

    Backing Track Resources

    Hi Everyone. I am a recording Noob with my Ultra and was wondering if the folks here have any tips, pearls, or resources for backing tracks. I searched the forum, but didn't really find what I was looking for. I have also been to many of the websites that have down-loadable mp3s and I use...
