    Axe Fx III and Xitone 12 inch wedge

    Sounds good to me! Seems pretty neutral. I had tried a Atomic CLR Neo around the same time I got the Xitone and prefered the Xitone. Unfortunately, that was a couple of years ago and I don't remember the specifics about my preference, just that I sent the CLR back and kept the Xitone. Yeah...

    Axe Fx III and Xitone 12 inch wedge

    I have a Xitone 12" wedge I sometimes use with the Axe Fx III. When I do, I simply put the wedge in front, the Axe Fx off to the side or, if at all possible, at the back of the room/stage. I don't have a particular concern about the AxeFx being on the floor as long as it is out of the way of the...

    Axe-Edit III 1.01.00

    The FC editing was a great addition to me, and I don't even own the FC yet. I've been on the fence about whether to order the FC-6, the FC-12, or just stick with a more general MIDI controller. Although the manuals and videos provide all the details on what the FCs can do, being able to sit down...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 3.02 Public Beta #2

    Ah, too bad. Even an asterisk at the end of the control name could do the job without color blindness concerns. But the beta2 approach seems like a reasonable approach to me all in all.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 3.02 Public Beta #2

    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned already (didn't see it anywhere), but it seems like another solution could be using color coding or some other visual indicator to distinguish the controls that are present on the amps that were modeled from the additional controls. That way, the 'basic'...

    FC Switch Jacks

    Another option to consider in the MIDI amp switcher realm is the Voodoo Lab Control Switcher (https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ContSwitcher--voodoo-lab-control-switcher-midi-amp-channel-switcher). Looks very similar to the FootSim bdrepko linked to, but a little less expensive -- can...

    Axe FX III as MIDI interface for external devices?

    Can the Axe III serve as a MIDI interface for connecting external devices to a PC? That is, can MIDI messages received at the Axe's input be seen by software (e.g., DAW, editors for other hardware, etc.) running on a USB-connected computer a connected to the Axe, and conversely can the Axe pass...

    changing amp model without changing amp parameters?

    Thanks AlGrenadine, for these updates to AxeFxSend / FracTool (I dig the new name, btw)! I've been playing around with it a bit. It works well and it is quite useful, as I expected it to be. The most obvious use is for switching between different versions of the same amp, such as the HBE and...

    changing amp model without changing amp parameters?

    I would like to have the option to do so, but it sounds like this isn't a possibility. Not even all the parameters on the basics page stay constant. For example, presence, depth, master, input trim, etc. -- I think everything but input gain, bass, middle, and treble, but I won't swear to that --...

    changing amp model without changing amp parameters?

    Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, although a few parameters such input drive, bass, mid, and treble stay unchanged, most other parameters on the basic and various advanced pages change (unless they happen to already be set to where the selected amp would put them anyway, of course).

    changing amp model without changing amp parameters?

    What I'm looking to do isn't so much get a sense of what individual parameters do -- although that is certainly very useful, I can do that by just tweaking it within a preset with or without changing the amp. Instead, I'm looking to sample different amp models with everything (or at least all...

    changing amp model without changing amp parameters?

    With X/Y switching, you still have the problem of having to go parameter-by-parameter to set everything other than the amp model across X and Y. Not a bit deal if it is a one-time thing, but not something very fun to do often.

    changing amp model without changing amp parameters?

    Is there any way -- in either Ax8-Edit or on the Ax8 itself -- to change the amp model without most of the amp parameters changing? There are times I'd like to try out similar amps (for example, switching between the three different variations of the HBE) to get a feel for their unique...

    Do you use amp knobs on your AX8?

    I use them a fair bit when dailing up a patch from scratch or doing major adjustments and/or experimentation with the amp settings. I'll just pause Ax8-Edit, put the Ax8 up on piano bench + laptop stand to have it at a convenient height, and tweak the knobs directly. I find that more quick and...

    Fremen AX8 presets - teaser

    I'm having the same issue, but it sounds like Fremen has updated the sample pack to address it (see a few posts up). Haven't had a chance to try out the update yet, but I suspect that will resolve it. For whatever its worth, I noticed that the problem disappears if you remove the Scene1...

    cab-lab with Ax8

    I didn't see anything specifically mentioned on the website, which is my point. After looking over both the website and the manual, I could find no indication of if or how Cab-Lab works with Ax8 and Ax8-edit and, as I discovered, it isn't the case that one can just assume that whatever is said...

    cab-lab with Ax8

    As a workaround, would it be possible to add a "disconnect/reconnect" function (mapped to a shortcut key) to both Ax8-Edit and Cab-Lab? Similar to the "pause" button in Ax8-Edit, but fully relinquishing the connection, and then automatically attempting to reconnect after a few seconds. That way...

    cab-lab with Ax8

    That is disappointing, but I appreciate the response. May I recommend updating the cab-lab page on the website, as well as the manual, to indicate what it can and can't do with the Ax8?

    cab-lab with Ax8

    Thanks, its helpful to know that it isn't just my system, and that it isn't just the lite version. I wonder if this is something that will be addressed in the (hopefully near) future, or if it will remain exclusive to the AxeFxII.

    cab-lab with Ax8

    I've been playing around with Cab-Lab-Lite (3.2.0), and it seems quite useful, aside from one annoyance. I cannot run Cab-Lab-Lite and Ax8-Edit at the same time. Whichever I open first retains its' connection with the Ax8, and the other never connects until the one with the connection is closed...

    My custom AX8 workstation ;)

    I'm using one of these adjustable laptop stands when I want to edit directly from the Ax8: It's nice, b/c you can simply angle it forward if you want (with a lot of options about how much to angle it), and/or raise the height. That let's you set it well for editing while sitting or...

    Weird digital "synthy" chirp noise???

    I've experienced this occasionally, or else something similar, where I hear some high frequency tones appear and then quickly fade out (within about 1 second) upon switching between presets. This can occur even when I didn't play anything with those high frequencies before switching (for...

    Posible bug!!!

    Mostly small things. On occasion, when switching from a high gain preset to another preset, I'll hear a moderately high frequency fuzzy-ish tone when first switching that fades out over the course of a second or so. Kinda hard to describe. When I get the chance, I'll post a video of that so...

    Posible bug!!!

    Yeah, I reported this a week or two ago. I've noticed it on several other amps, as well. At least a couple other people reported that they sometimes can reproduce this effect, but sometimes not. Others indicated that they don't have the issue at all. So that is a little puzzling why this is...

    Bug? Defect?: Strange sounds with some high gain presets

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try it in another part of the house tomorrow. But I suspect EMF is not the culprit, as I'd expect EMF noise to get worse as the gain is increased, rather than kicking in only when gain is dropped down to 0. I also don't have comparable noise problems with any...

    Bug? Defect?: Strange sounds with some high gain presets

    This might be nothing more than an odd quirk, but I thought it was interesting and unusual enough to post. In auditioning some of the presets and tweaking the knobs, I stumbled upon the odd behavior shown in the video below. In this example, I have the Bank 8 Preset 7 (Angle Severe) loaded up...

    Solved: AX8 running out of CPU

    Hmm, I'm not having any problems with that combination of blocks. For example, the first factory preset (Double Verb) has comp, wah, phaser, drive, amp, ultra-res cab, chorus, delay, and high quality reverb, all at 82% cpu usage. On that patch, if you up the chorus to 8 voices, the reverb will...

    Bass patches

    Perhaps this should go in the preset exchange subforum, but there doesn't seem to be much action there so far, so... Does anyone have good presets, or even some suggestions, for bass? I've seen some good presets for the AxeFx ii, such as the SeeD bass presets, but unfortunately haven't seen...

    MIDI question

    Fair enough...water under the bridge, and all that. Just to be clear, I'm not saying that I feel cheated that it doesn't have that capability. Merely that I expected that it would, so I was surprised that it doesn't, and I hope it will be added at some point. I'm glad to hear that the Fx8 has...

    MIDI question

    I got the point -- there was nothing particularly deep or profound about it, so not much to miss. Just not sure the need for the snarky initial reply, or why you feel the need to give words of wisdom about what I (or anyone) should or shouldn't be surprised about regarding its features. But...

    MIDI question

    I agree -- I'm surprised by this limitation, and hope it can be addressed in a future update. If using the Ax8 along side other devices that respond to MIDI CCs, it would be very nice to be able to control those devices from the AX8.

    Plugging directly into nearfield recording monitors for home listening?

    Just a quick note on the Samson 65a's. I used to have a pair several years back and, although I thought they were ok for the money, I don't think they really do justice to high-end modelers such as the Ax8. I replaced them with a set of Adam A7x's, and the difference was remarkable -- I'd equate...

    Anyone get invites today?

    Anyone get invites today?

    I think its kind of ironic that one of the most significant aspects of the AX8's release is that it will bring tons of new people (such as myself) to Fractal, yet most of those that have received them so far are existing Fractal users. I don't mean anything negative by that (its actually quite a...
