    Axe-Fx Firmware Version 21.00

    I've always wondered about this. In amps designed like these, is the word "Presence" a misnomer? Does anybody know if this control is still a kind of negative feedback control for the preamp or is "preamp presence" really just more like a High Treble or High Cut kind of control but simply called...

    violin EQ

    If your low notes are loud and your high notes are quiet, I’d recommend putting a compressor at the beginning of the chain. Start subtle and slowly increase compression (while slowly boosting the compressor level to compensate) until you get an even output. I’d also recommend using one of the...

    Making coil splitting work

    One thing to note about the spin-a-split mod. I'd highly recommend the pot you use to be a no-load pot so when you turn it to 10, the pot is truly removed from the circuit and the guitar no longer sees the load of the pot. If you don't do that, the pot stays in the circuit and loads the...

    Making coil splitting work

    You know what... you guys were right. I was measuring and thinking in terms of the spin-a-split mod. Doh! Volume pots work differently than that. :) It's been a couple years since I dove down the rabbit hole of pickup and pot wiring. Might have to revisit it.

    Making coil splitting work

    Ok guys that's interesting, but it does make me curious about something. When I put my multimeter on a 500k pot and turn it down, the resistance does in fact lower over the sweep of the pot until it eventually hits 0. I can measure a 500k audio taper pot on 10, and when I turn it down to around...

    Making coil splitting work

    I chose to attach my neck pickup's spin-a-split pot to the inner slug coil, leaving the outer coil on when the slug is rolled off. This is because I prefer neck single coils to be as close to directly under the 24th fret / 2nd octave harmonic position as possible. This is where the outer coil is...

    Helix 3.5 New Cab Engine is Awesome! Fractal needs to catch up!

    For front panel editing, there's really no need for a fancy UI with a picture of a mic and speaker to get the same functionality of the Helix.

    Treble bleed mod

    The point of a treble bleed mod is to counteract the effect of the increased capacitance that comes with lowering a volume pot, which darkens the treble of a pickup faster than the bass. So, to simulate a treble bleed mod, all you have to do is put a volume block at the beginning of your chain...

    Perspective - Fractal Audio user since 2008

    Some really good points in there.

    Imput levels - Axe FX3, still confused.

    Over the last year or two I've built up an all-analog setup with the constraint of being a what-you-see-is-what-you-get rig. Tube amp, real cab, and a pedal board.

    I watched a Tim Pierce video the other day, and he mentioned that he liked his delays to sit nicely in the background, but to also have as inaudible of a trail as possible.

    Another Axefx vs Amps thread

    ...but he did tell you how to close the gap. He advised you to: 1. Set the Speaker Compliance knob to 0. This should bring back the beefy low end you said is missing from the models. 2. Do a Tone Match to further negate any remaining differences in overall EQ Have you tried these things?

    The FM9 has 3 stereo outputs so it should be able to accommodate the output routing. I'm not 100% sure about the CPU capabilities. If I had to guess I'd say the FM9 almost definitely has the CPU to handle a patch like the "compact" patch above, but not the "kitchen sink" one. The only other...

    Latency of amp modelers

    If you layer two identical sounds on top of each other, 1 ms apart, you cannot detect a delay so much as phase cancellation.
