    FC-12 randomly freezes

    Sounds like it's a possibility I'll check that out. I'm not sure if I should open it, but I guess I could just open it and look, I don't think that me opening it will cause any issues. Thanks for the suggestions I'll keep on it :cool:

    FC-12 randomly freezes

    I tried two different cords and it still happened. I noticed that it's the first 3 switches bottom right. I checked the MLM switch combo and it's set to disabled. I think I understand that to be the proper setting to use those switches as normal, or I might have it backwards just triyng to find...

    Ya it's weird that it's just like the bug that was fixed, oh well I'll try a new cord tomorrow and go from there. I'm sure it will get worked out one way or another. Thanks

    Anyone having issues with the FC-12 randomly not working? It freezes and then you can see the button assignments but nothing works when you press the buttons on the FC. It will work again after I shut off the Axe 3 and restart then after a little while it freezes again. The front panel works...

    Hi all, I'm looking for a new A/B switch to replace my Whirlwind Selector A/B box . I'm switching between an Axe FX II and a BE-100 / FX8. The Whirlwind seems to suck tone and the power is noisy. It switches just fine but the loss of tone and noise is too much for me. I've tried a few of the...

    Strats - I love and hate 'em

    I would love to have one ( I'm a Les Paul Guy now ) but my picking hand turns the volume down while i'm playing like the posts above.
  23. JIMMY G

    Not understanding FX8 or maybe it just doesnt do this?

    I'm not in front of my computer, but I think you can just go into config ( in FX-8 Edit )and assign the switches to what effects you want ( right click and pick assignment )and assign the other four to the preset you want. I think you can only use presets from the current bank thou.

    I love my Les Pauls' but I find Gibson pick-ups are very bassy. I use Bare Knuckle Black Dog (moderate output,Bridge) and HS supermassive P-90, Neck) or other pickups of your choice. Changing the pickups made a big difference, but that does cost money but if you cant work it out it might be a...

    In the Spirit of NAMM Anouncements (FAS reactive load box)

    Seems to me it gives people who want to use a tube amp a better variety of speaker cabs to use without buying all kinds of speakers. Especially if you already own an Axe-Fx and a bunch of ir's.:)

    Newbie question - scenes

    In FX8 edit, go to the footswitch tab and assign 1-4 to the appropriate scene. You'll have to decide which effects you want as you only get four then. Thats the only way I know but maybe someone knows a better way. I dont think you can do what your asking.

    Will FX8 Relays Change Channels on a BE-100

    4-Cables Method Hi-Gain Question

    I'm using my Axe-Fx set-up in the 4 cable method into a 100w head and when I'm using the high gain channel I get lots of noise. It's been quite a few years since I had a real amp, so would a noise gate in front of the amp input stop the noise or would it go in the effects loop or both? I tried...

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 2.02 Firmware Release

    Fractal said: Okay, I just spent the last five hours coding it so the user can select 2.01 or 2.02 for *each" amp model (rather than a global setting). This way you can choose which version you like best. Dumb question do I need to reinstall the new 2.02 or is that coming in a new update

    Input: Cab Pack or Ownhammer?

    Try as many as you can afford and Cab-Lab too. Their pretty cheap if you pick one up when you have a few extra bucks. Sometime I only get one ir out of a Pak or Ownhammer but one good ir is worth the $30-75 to me. Most of the ir's I use are combos made in Cab-Lab, but not all. My two cents.

    Looking for new pickups for my Les Paul Studio.

    I have BareKnuckle pickups in all my Les Paul's, 3 with Blackdog Bridge-Supermassive Humbucker P-90neck. I also have one with Holy Drivers and one with Aftermaths. Love them all!! The Axe-Fx and Bareknuckles really seem to go well together, just my two cents:)

    To IR or not to IR - Cab Pack purchase worth the money?

    What pickups work best with Les Paul and Axe FXII?

    I have Bareknuckle Humbucker sized Supermassive P-90's in the neck and Bareknuckle Black Dogs in the bridge of four different Les Pauls and love them. Big open sound from the P-90's and the Black dogs are very versatile. IMHO
