    Not much love for bass regarding amps and effects?

    So what is the difference exactly between the II and III in regard to the usefulness for bass?

    Need a little help re-loading presets to XL+ running Quantum 8.02

    Maybe he has to update to the latest FW first and then get the presets from the Fractal site and load them in with Fractalbot?

    Correct. That was the disappointment speaking...:)

    Bug? Ares 1.03 Axe-Fx II low end thump when changing presets

    Yes I agree it’s dissapointing that we are left with this bug. At least we should have a bug free last firmware. Especially since it is a very annoying bug. Shouldn’t be a real hard fix because it wasn’t there before.

    Bug? Ares 1.03 Axe-Fx II low end thump when changing presets

    Hi Simeon, how did you manage this bug/problem by now? Did you revert back to an older firmware or did you learn to live with it?

    Not possible on the Axe fx.

    Sustainiac simulation?

    Yes that is a cool pedal. But as you say completely different from an ebow or sustainer. It is more like Freeze or Superego.
  10. Bodde

    Sustainiac simulation?

    This topic has come up a lot. You can replicate Ebow or a sustainiac to a certain extent but I've never come across a really convincing preset from the Axe. Nothing can replace the real thing because the sustaining bit is just one part of the sound or things that can be done with an Ebow or...

    ARES - SVT 1 bass amp - with SQUIER precision bass - some riffage from the song "schism" by TOOL

    Swells without an expression pedal?

    I agree. For swells this is the best solution. But If you want it to control gain you placed it before amp and drive. I don't use it that way though. I also prefer using a pedal instead of the volume knob for swells. Makes it much more easy with chords and damping notes with both left and right...

    Please make an FM7

    But you don't put the Axe fx III on the floor?

    Not if you have really good expression pedals like the Fractal EV-1 maybe? I never played with one.

    What are the negatives? I would like to have a machine with two integrated quality expression pedals. I like the idea of an all in one board.

    Bug? Ares 1.03 Axe-Fx II low end thump when changing presets

    Do you think we get a fix for this? It has been said it was the final FW. But it would be a pity if the final update has this kind of a bug. Since it is the final one at least the bugs 'should' be solved. I don't want to update to the last FW now since I don't want this thump (and some other...

    Which tuner is right?

    I hear what you are saying. I don't have an Axe fx III but I never liked the strobe tuner on my Axe fx II. It is too jumpy and restless for me. So I always use the 'normal' tuner on the Axe fx II hardware. I never use the MFC tuner. I would suggest tuning your guitar one time to each of the...

    Implemented Editing on smartphone

    Axe fx II. Thanks for your answer. Would be nice for the future if we would have complete wireless control without the need for an extra device just like with the H9. But that would mean a change in the hardware design and build in Bluetooth I guess.
  28. Bodde

    But Fracpad isn't working over Bluetooth directly like the H9. It requires a midi interface or another interface isn't it?

    Announcing the FM3 Amp Modeler/FX Processor!

    ok thanks. Never used XLR cables for main out before on my Axe fx II. Can you still use output 2 of the FM3 as a main out with unbalanced jacks? In case you forget your XLR cables or have no XLR inputs left in your mixer or soundcard.
  31. Bodde

    Announcing the FM3 Amp Modeler/FX Processor!

    Is there much difference in terms of sound and noise between balanced XLR and (unbalanced) jack when going to FOH? And for recording? And do you use a standard XLR mic cable for that?
  32. Bodde

    Announcing the FM3 Amp Modeler/FX Processor!

    Don't know if this is being discussed before but why did they choose for XLR balanced for out 1 instead of jack? I am used to using jacks for out 1 with my Axe fx II.

    Announcing the FM3 Amp Modeler/FX Processor!

    Thanks for the video. Is the FC switch layout per preset or can you also set it globally? Seems like you need a lot of pre planning to make this work with 3 switches for a gig. Also you have to remember a lot of how you have set the switches and how you have set up the scenes and channels...

    Bug? Ares 1.03 Axe-Fx II low end thump when changing presets

  39. Bodde

    Bug? Ares 1.03 Axe-Fx II low end thump when changing presets

    Yes I can remember that amp/preset switching pop was an issue long time ago. It was pretty annoying I can remember. Hope this bug gets fixed. Wouldn't be good if the last FW has this kind of a bug since most people will update to the last FW. Is it only with 1.03 or also with earlier Ares (or...

    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 1.03 Firmware Release

    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 1.02 Firmware Release

    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 1.02 Firmware Release

    Cliff said in the release notes of 1.01 that presets before Quantum 7 are not supported. I am on Quantum 5. What is the best way to update now? First install Quantum 10.0 and after that install Quantum 1.02?

    Bit Crushed synth soundscape

    I have checked it some more but turns out there is no synth block at all in that sound!! It is just a drive block bit crusher and a multi delay plex delay and volume swells controlled by an expression pedal. I was surprised myself. Sorry for the misinformation....

    Axe-Fx II Firmware "Ares" 1.00 Public Beta

    Good to know that this is the last update. I want to thank you for al the hard work. I have been enjoying the Axe II for years and will continue so. Totally understandable that you will put all your time in new products. Those who want more should buy the Axe fx III.

    Mod Duo

    ok thanks. Yes I guess it's more a competitor of the Line 6 Helix stomp or M series. But I think it's a nice product and handy for small gigs or when you want to travel light. But when you already have an Axe fx II it is not adding very much.
  57. Bodde

    Mod Duo

    ok thanks! Good info. What do you think of the quality of the effects when you compare it to the Axe fx II?
  58. Bodde

    Stereo vs. Mono at gigs. What are you using?

    That's not always possible. With bigger stages and theaters that's usually not a problem. Otherwise you have the monitor guy sum the stereo to mono on one monitor.
  59. Bodde

    Stereo vs. Mono at gigs. What are you using?

    Another problem with stereo can be the monitoring. I have had several gigs where they had put only one side of the sound on the monitor. Really annoying when you discover that in the middle of the set and you have to play a tempo dual delay. So always check for that.
  60. Bodde

    So I bought a Helix Stomp to compare with my Axe-Fx II

    Ok and what about the rest? Quality of the effect and amps?
  61. Bodde

    Is the Axe-Fx good for bass?

    Never tried a Helix. But it has my curiosity now that I know it has so much for bass. But it in the end it all depends on the quality of the (bass) effects and the bass amp models. So I am not sure if they are up to par with the Axe fx II?
  62. Bodde

    Is the Axe-Fx good for bass?

    Yes I feel this way too. Which 'others' are you referring too? Good list by the way!!
  63. Bodde

    Mod Duo

    Just run into this. Interesting device! seems like a hybrid between a scaled down Axe fx/Axe edit, some Line 6 M9 and Eventide H9. I like the idea and workflow but in the end it all depends on the the quality of the sounds from the effects. Anyone tried this? they also have a Mod duo X now.
  64. Bodde

    Amps models by manufacturer

    Yes I agree that is much more convient. It's not always easy to know what amp it is based on by just looking at the Axe fx names. But maybe it is because of copyright issues that they can't name it the same as the actual amp?
  65. Bodde

    Axe-Fx II in Action: Yes - Live at the Apollo

    Same here. I much more prefer the Steve Howe era than the Rabin era of Yes. To me the real Yes is the old line up with Steve Howe not the things they did with Rabin.

    How many tried the III and decided to just keep using the II?

    1) You don't like the three units format. 2) You don't need the extra features of the III 3) You don't want to spend or wayste time tweaking your presets because of the constant FW updates. 4) You don't want to tweak all your presets again to fit in the III Those are the 4 reasons I keep...

    Wish Axe-Fx III 1U lite edition

    I also agree. I always use my Axe fx II with a laptop attached even on gigs. I never use the front panel. For me the Axe fx III is too big. So a 1U with no screen or a very small one would be really nice. I also agree that in the near future this is probably how most people will use it. Axe fx...

    Axe-Fx III vs II for just effects

    Haha. Fair enough. Yes I meant the sound of the algorithms or the basic character of the sound of the delays and reverbs. Did it really change much compared to the II?

    Axe-Fx III vs II for just effects

    Curious about this. What exactly has been improved in the delays and reverbs? And is it a big difference?

    1.19b3 pitch block first impressions

    Good to hear that the Pitch block finally improved! That was on lots of people’s wish lists. This gives me one more reason to make the leap from the Axe fx II to III eventually.

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 10.01 Firmware Release

    It might give you false hope. How realistic are more updates if there is a new product that deserves all attention?

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 10.01 Firmware Release

    Finished in the meaning of last FW. I don't want my Axe fx II to finish! :)
  77. Bodde

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 10.01 Firmware Release

    I am just being realistic and also tired of updating. So rather than hoping for more I prefer to have an official stated last firmware and then call it a day.

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 10.01 Firmware Release

    Yes one last update and then finish the Axe fx II.

    Wish Multiply functionality in Looper

    I would love to have a replace function as well. I use that more than multiply. But I doubt that will ever be implemented in the Axe fx. The looper in the Axe fx is useful but pretty basic and not a specialized looping device like the Echoplex or other more advanced loopers

    Setting Input Level er Guitar

    As you can read in the other topic. The only solution now is to set the global input instrument setting so that your loudest guitar does not clip. And then do rest in the blocks per preset. I wish Fractal would come with an option so that you can set at least two global instrument input...

    Setting Input Level er Guitar

    Seems more people are wanting this option. It would be very handy if you use more than one guitar on stage. I made a topic on a it a month ago for the Axe fx II. Some good info there: https://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/setting-different-input-levels-for-multiple-guitars.142814/

    Anymore Firmware updates?

    Exactly what I am thinking! I highly doubt there will be more updates. And I don't care if there are no more firmware updates but I would want an official statement from Fractal saying this is the very last thing for the Axe II. So we can put it to rest, enjoy what we have and don't have to hope...

    Can we make this sound? - "Hungry Like the Wolf" Synth

    Nice song and are. I highly doubt that that intro from Hungry LAW can be recreated fully with the Axe fx. Not only for the tones but also for the sound. I think you will miss the attack and impact of a real synth. But you might get in the ballpark. Curious about Simeon's patch.
  86. Bodde

    Using only expression pedals with no MFC?

    Yes but I have an Axe II and that has only one expression pedal input. I need at least three expression pedals Thanks unix-guy for your suggestion. I had a look. I guess I need MIDI expression quattro then? That has four inputs. Anyone here tried this device?
  87. Bodde

    Using only expression pedals with no MFC?

    I have an MFC with three expression pedals. However for some gigs or when I am at home I don't use the MFC at all but only use the expression pedals and Axe Edit to control my presets. So I was thinking why I still keep lugging the MFC along. Is there a way to use the expression pedals without...

    AustinBuddy possible Bass Presets for the Axe III - what do you want to see?

    I don’t really see the point in listing all your favorite players in a bass preset topic. Although you have a good taste I must say! You have to name a specific song from which you like the bass sound. Also to get these bass sounds more bass amps and cabs should be added otherwise lots of these...

    Setting different input levels for multiple guitars?

    Ok thanks. Now say it I remember it. Thanks for clarifying. Never adjusted the signal level control though.
  90. Bodde

    Setting different input levels for multiple guitars?

    Yes I know about the input at the left on the Axe 2. But it’s not really a block. But if I remember correctly it doesn’t have a signal level control but only controls for the noise gate. I am not at my Axe fx right now to check it.
  91. Bodde

    Setting different input levels for multiple guitars?

    ok, thanks! It's clear now. I don't have an Axe fx III and the Axe fx II doesn't have the input block. So I was wandering exactly what could be adjusted in the input block. Instead of adjusting the signal level in the input block in the Axe fx III you can just as well use a volume block in the...
  92. Bodde

    Setting different input levels for multiple guitars?

    Now I am confused. So can the inst input level (how the guitar enters the Axe fx III) be set in the input Block as well? So per preset. So that the input lights don't go into red when changing guitars. I think not.
  93. Bodde

    Setting different input levels for multiple guitars?

    Ok thanks for your help. That was what I wanted to know. I thought the Axe III had this option to save different inst level or input settings in the input block somehow but now I know it doesn't.
  94. Bodde

    Setting different input levels for multiple guitars?

    But on the Axe fx II there is no way to decrease the input volume of the guitar in a block or in the gate at the beginning (?). You can use input trim in the amp block but that doesn't help when you overload the input with the guitar and the lights go into red?
  95. Bodde

    Setting different input levels for multiple guitars?

    But how do set the input levels in the Axe fx III presets then exactly? As this cannot be done in the Axe fx II.
  96. Bodde

    Setting different input levels for multiple guitars?

    ok, thanks guys. I will go 'set to to the loudest guitar' then. So is it possible to save different inst input levels in the Axe fx III? Maybe with the input blocks? I don't have a III but it is good to know anyway,
  97. Bodde

    Setting different input levels for multiple guitars?

    Yes I think that is the only solution. But for the loud guitar I have to set it to maybe 15% or so. That might not be a good overall setting? Not sure if this affects the signal noise ration? Is there more noise with (too) low Inst input settings? It is kind of confusing to me since Severed...

    Setting different input levels for multiple guitars?

    I use two guitars at gigs. One has active pickups and has much more output. The other one is a strat with passive single coils.

    Swing 16th Delay

    Don't think that is what he meant. Think he means setting the delay in straight 16th rhythm and than have a shuffle/swing parameter or knob like many sequencers and drum machines have. You can then adjust the swing from 0 to 100%.
  100. Bodde

    Swing 16th Delay
