    Migrating from a II to a III

    I'm struggling with the notion of re-creating all my presets on the III. A significant undertaking to say the least. Additionally, I'd prefer to sell my II now (before the III arrives.) The only thing I can think of at the moment is to run a screen recorder, launch Axe-Edit and cycle through...

    Migrating from Axe-Fx II to Axe-8

    I was thinking of replacing my Axe FX with an Axe-8 but concerned that I may have regrets. Has anyone done this and been 100% satisfied? I don't own an MFC but have been wanting one forever. So my option is, just buy the MFC or, convert to an Axe-8 and don't look back. Thoughts, opinions? thx

    Romeo Rose - BAHAHAHAHAHAH

    I just watched Video 3 and it was hilarious. There were so many comical moments. He even has Howard Stern fished in and Howard shreds him. He's clearly just looking for more "15 minutes of fame". Don't fall for any of this Cliff! lol

    Seamless Preset Switching

    I have an original Axe FX II. I was wondering if upgrading to an XL would give me any performance increase with respect to patch changes?

    Metallica - Orion - 3 Lead Presets (Tone Matched)

    Thanks to Guitarjon for his work on the original Orion preset as I used it as a building block for Kirk's lead tones. Essentially, re-tonematching the isolated solo tracks, adding in his TS808 setting, and trying to match the reverb. The first part of the video includes a backing...

    Q: After updating firmware is re-tonematching required?
