    Favorite 2 drive pedals into a clean amp?

    Awesome...thanks for all your input. I have been using the FET preamp into the Klon (and also using the preamp input boost set on Neutral) of late. I'm gonna give all these combo's a whirl. Love how many "color's" of tone the FM9 offers...

    Favorite 2 drive pedals into a clean amp?

    I have been working with some edge of breakup tones (AC 20, Band Commander, Two Stone, etc) and adding two drives before the amps. What are your favorite combinations of two drive pedals to create variety and intensity of tone before a cleanish amp?

    No Output after Receive Mode w/Fractal-Bot

    What finally worked was resetting the systems parameters (which I did a few times) AND then turning the unit off for 5 seconds and back on. I think the power reboot must have been necessary for it to work. Thanks all for your help. This one was a bit baffling for me. Onward and upward!

    Thanks for the idea. I tried that and still no signal. I did rebuild another block with just input, amp, cab and output and that did get a signal/output/sound. None of my other patches work. Any thoughts?!?

    No Output after Receive Mode w/Fractal-Bot

    Thanks for this post. The crazy thing is it was working perfectly prior to the Fractal Bot sending files for the Banks/Cabs to my computer. Since then, I have had no output to speakers. In addition, I plugged via USB into Logic and no signal to Logic either.

    Hey Luke, Thanks for the idea. Yep I tried it with just in the Input1/Output1 with no blocks and still no sound. Something got disengaged so the output signal (which I see reading on the front panel's meters) is not generating a signal.

    Q's for folks who've come from an AX8 to the III

    I have the Axe II, Axe 8 and AxeIII. The III’s extra DSP power makes the amps sound different/better than the II & 8. Using the Axe Edit and the Quick build feature you can easily rebuild the chain from your Axe8 and tweak from there. I did not use any of my Axe II or 8 patches on the III...

    Atomic CLR Neo with Axe-Fx 3?

    I use the CLR Neo Live. The first time gig I had it set on -4db and felt like I was almost tapped out in terms of headroom (play in a 10 piece band and stage volume can get loud). When I reset the master to +10 it was great and had as much headroom as I needed (although a bit hot for...
