    Audient ASP800 with the Axe- Fx III

    Hi all, Sorry if this has been gone over before, I tried searching but couldn't come up with anything re: this exact scenario. This may be more of a general question on linking devices with digital connections, but would it work to connect a preamp like the Audient ASP800 with the AFIII via...

    FS Axe Fx II w/MFC-101

    Hi All, https://reverb.com/item/13317257-fractal-audio-axe-fx-ii-with-mfc-101-black I have for sale an Axe FX II with MFC-101 in Excellent condition save for some rack rash around the mounting holes of the Axe Fx and a few scuffs on the MFC. Still works perfectly. Plastic still on the screen...

    Does it sound better than the Axe Fx 2 XL+?

    I think one way forward is maybe more "fractal original" tones. Tones that don't necessarily have an analog equivalent. And more amps... I would never complain about more amps, although Cliff has given us more than enough already and I barely use anything except variations on the Fender clean sound.

    "Live EDM" tone?

    Hey all, I've had my AF2 for a couple years now and I'm pretty good at getting the "traditional" guitar tones I want, but this one has me baffled to the point where I don't even know where to begin... any thoughts? I figure a lot of axe owners could have fun with this one.

    YOURS for just $2400!

    I just mean before you pay almost double for an AX8. I totally get why you'd pick an AX8 over an AXEII at the regular price. I've even had thoughts of picking one up and doing a sort of modular setup. Using the AX8 in conjunction with my AXEII as a foot controller and for instances where I...

    So long as it's on the case and not the Axe Fx itself, it's cool

    Introduction thread

    Hey all, I'm Mike. I've been a lurker/compulsive updater/preset theif since I got my AxeFx II last year. I used to suffer from severe GAS, but now I don't even think about amps or effects, only getting my hands on more guitars to plug into this magical box. It's definitely the best gear...

    Quality of PRS vs Suhr

    Check out the recently reissued CE-24. I have one from the 90's and they're great. You get the workmanship of the higher end models with a bolt on neck, which you may find more comfortable if you're more familiar with Fenders.

    Need tips for plugging Axe-Fx II into a combo amp

    I've experimented with using my old Peavey Classic 50 to monitor sometimes if I'm using my FRFR to produce the "FOH" sound. Out 2 straight from into the fx return of the amp with the fx loop block in parallel before the cab... So you could do that to prevent having to alter your presets too much...

    Bruh, why not just a used Axe Fx II and a good foot controller for that?

    Who has sold their Axe Fx to get an AX8?

    I've really been thinking about it. Everything integrated and on the floor seems like a dream. My biggest thing is giving up two amp blocks. Although, I'm not sure how much I actually need two amp sims and how much of it is vanity and wanting to be like my favorite guitarists.

    Help/Challenge for the strat players in the group

    I really dig the PRS sound he's got going... And I think he's got excellent chemistry with those guys. I saw them in DC and it was a phenomenal show, despite the fact that I'm only a casual Dead fan. RE: the old tone, I've been keeping up with his Instagram and Snapchat posts from in the...

    Help/Challenge for the strat players in the group

    I've been trying to nail that tone for as long as I've had the Axe. I got pretty close at one point by cheating and using tone match on the intro of a high res copy of "Slow Dancing in A Burning Room" after trying my best to replicate his signal chain from that time. I'll try and dig it up and...
