    Help With Odd Noise

    I've read about fizz a lot and I don't think that's what it is. I get it on a lot of different amps, especially if I don't strum hard. I'll try messing with the gate or adding a gate expander.

    The monitors are plugged right into the axe. I sometimes use my mac to control axe edit. And yes, it's the fuzziness or artifact sound i'm hearing. I'm using 3.01.

    The Axe and Guitar Volume Controls

    Original poster, I think i'm guilty of a few things that have been pointed. I'm doing this at bedroom volumes, I'm sure i'm using way too much gain, and I'm usually using a drive pedal. Thanks for the tips, I'll give them a try

    The Axe and Guitar Volume Controls

    One of the biggest differences i've found with the Axe III and a tube amp is the way the amp reacts to adjusting the volume knob on the guitar. On a tube amp it's really easy to back the volume off and really clean up the sound, one the Axe III it doesn't seem to work the same. Any tips for...

    How to go about creating low volume patches

    Another question on creating low volume distortion presets. Have people had better luck with keeping the drive low and trying to crank the master, or cranking the drive and keeping the master lower? I've usually done the latter but that could be some of my problem.
  25. J

    Distortion Question

    I can try to upload something. How exactly do I do that? On the volume thing, I guess I've always done it from the amp block out of lazyness. I play around 9 ft away from the Axe and adjust everything using Axe edit. I haven't used the VU meters before, i'll have to look into that. Thanks...
  26. J

    Distortion Question

    Could some of this be from how I lower the volume? I typically keep my output 1 knob at around 20% then control the volume from the level control in the amp block. The sound seems to happen more when i have my guitar volume knob really low?

    How to go about creating low volume patches

    How to go about creating low volume patches

    What are people's strategies when creating low volume distortion patches. I'm talking 70-75 db. Do you just crank the gain and then decrease the overall level? Do you keep a Marshall type amp at a gain around 5 then put a boost in front and crank it? Or do you keep the gain lower and then...

    Distortion Question

    Yes, definitely reduced but not eliminated when on a distortion preset. If it's clean I hear no interference.
  30. J

    Distortion Question

    If I unplug I hear a little bit of interference. I didn't mean that FRFR is more susceptible to interference, I just meant that it's easier to hear since it's a wider frequency range.
  31. J

    Distortion Question

    The weird thing is I don't hear the interference when I play my other rig, which is a JVM1H thru a 2x12? Does the FRFR enhance the interference because it plays a wider spectrum of higher frequencies?
  32. J

    Distortion Question

    So after missing with this more, I think what i'm actually hearing is interference. Is this something the gate can fix? I have a lot of lights on dimmers at my house? What kind of settings should the gate be at?

    Distortion Question

    When you say turn down the distortion, are you talking in the amp block? If so, the sound is still there when you do that.

Is there an easier way to do...

    What Am I doing Wrong With Channels?

    Maybe my understanding of using "channels" is wrong, but I thought channels gave you the ability to have different blocks on and off. It works fine when i change the amp on channel B to a different amp, but for example, if i turn off the drive block in Channel A, it turns the drive block off on...

    Volume Issues

    I turn down at the amp block because i'm 8 feet away and have my laptop next to me so i can use axe edit. Could that be part of the problem? Also because each stock preset seems to vary in volume.

    Volume Issues

    If I turn it down to 60db it sounds really muddy. The lower the volume the more it sounds like a blanket over the tone. My setup is really is really simple, I just have 2 Presonnus Sceptre 8 monitors. I go directly from the guitar to the Axe.

    ML Lab 'Guns N Roses' Cab Pack Demo

    I tend to agree with him. The volume knobs on the guitar don't seem to have the same effect on the Axe as they do when dealing with a real tube amp. The Axe III seems better than the II with this but I still have a hard time really cleaning up the tone with just the volume knob.
