    Thank you to Atomic Amps (for above and beyond support)

    I was a bone-head twice and Atomic Amps still came through for me... I've had a pair of Atomic CLR powered Neo wedges for a few years. They're awesome... but at some point early on one of them started having the high frequency part that would not work when I first turned it on, but after 20...

    VOL block balance knob - working as intended?

    Axe-FX II XL, FW Quantum 10.01. Connected using XLR cables from Out1 balanced L and R to a pair of Atomic CLRs. Volume block last in chain, only one row connects through to last column. Balance knob set either +100 or -100, and sound still comes out of both speakers! I would have expected dead...

    AxeFX and RAC-12 mounted in powered monitor cab? nextgen combo?

    Hi gang, I've got AxeFX II XL + MFC-101 Mark III + RAC-12, very happy with it. I also bought Axe8 a while back, and I've been on the path toward my ultimate gig rig based on Ax8 with outboard reverb unit to save CPU for more flexible patches. I only want to keep one of these rigs. The main...

    Wish Separate FX Loop returns and Out2 in next-gen Ax8 product

    I want to be able to use the FX loop, and still have separately controllable levels and EQ for Out1 (to FoH) and Out2 (to my stage monitor).

    Problem w/ Atomic CLR NEO powered wedge: overheated, user error gain staging, or bad power?

    Hi all, looking for other folks' experiences. I have been happy with my Atomic CLR Neo for a couple of years of moderate use: taking back and forth to weekly rehearsal, and an occasional bar or corporate gig. Yesterday, I had a pair on at my house for maybe 4-6 hours, with the "1" and "2"...

    ax8 USB MIDI and standard MIDI ports at same time?

    I'm looking at a Strymon Big Sky to offload DSP/CPU from the Ax8, and ideally would like to use scenes to send MIDI PC changes to trigger different presets in the Big Sky. I also want to use Fracpad via bluetooth to USB MIDI to enable patch tweaking during rehearsals or shows. I might even get...

    You Know You're a Bonehead When...

    I'll start it off! ...when you realize 4 hours before a show that the reason your tone is thin is that you're using a strat and didn't notice the 12dB pad on the Ax8 input, and you barely tickle the lowest light. That might explain why I liked all the amps so much better with Trim set at 2-4...

    Scene Controller Accuracy for Input Trim

    I have noticed this before but didn't really dig into it. Right now I see hear very distinctly that my sound with Input Trim statically set at 2.0 is *very* different than the sound with a scene controller set at 20% with all controller defaults (so a basic y=x linear function, no offsets or...

    Ax8 patch & scene strategy to manage CPU

    I think I'm hitting a brick wall in trying to do things the Axe FX II XL way on the Ax8. I had accepted not using a bazillion blocks, but I am having a really tough time making an "all in one" patch with scenes that have a variety of sounds. If I want to have different scenes like: rotary...

    Reverse behavior of F2 light for scene select vs scene sticky

    I have F2 button single press to select a scene, and long press to enter scene sticky mode. I tend to leave it in Scene Sticky mode for a long while, typical operation during a song. But that fast flashing LED is annoying the heck out of me. Is there a way to flip it around so the fast flashing...

    AX8 use same pedal for Wah in one scene, something else in diff scene?

    In AxeFX II XL, I would accomplish this with a mixer block after the Wah, fed by the main signal block in one row and a bypass shunt in another row. This let me effectively have a thru-bypass functionality on the Wah even when auto-engage is used in the Wah block. In scenes where I want the...

    IA switch for patch change with backtracking

    Hi gang, I'm getting stuck after I thought I followed directions in the MFC-101 manual. I'm changing up my foot controller setup and this is what I want: Buttons 1-5 for scenes Buttons 6-10 to function like IA that toggle blocks on and off Buttons 11+ for special effects (e.g. flute, organ...

    Wish List: Description field in sysx file format

    The idea is to add some explanatory text relating to a patch, and then enhance AxeEdit to display this info on MouseOver event when browsing and auditioning a collection of patches. I find myself flipping back and forth between Audition mode of AxeEdit trying patches, then going to Yek's...

    Expression pedal easy to click/snap/rest at mid position?

    I've been using two Dunlop Volume (X) pedals for Wah and other stuff like Volume, Shimmer, Gain, mixing between 2 amps, etc. I want a pedal that has a tactile click in the middle so I can easily rest there for zero position, and then add up to 6dB on the top side or cut down to zero on the...

    Lightweight transport for MFC-101 + 4 pedals?

    Hi gang... so far I've been using a 4RU gatorbag that has the AxeFX IIXL and the other 2 spaces are perfect for sliding in the MFC-101 for compact logistics when going to weekly rehearsals or playing small bars. In one carry from the car I can have 1 Atomic CLR wedge (nano), gatorbag, guitar...

    Mouse works but typing into fields stops working?

    I've been having this problem a lot recently... I'm on AxeFX IIXL Q4 software, latest AxeEdit with Windows 7 Pro. A simple work-around is to stop and relaunch the AxeEdit software, but it is pretty annoying to have inputs fail and disrupt the workflow or concentration of making a sound. It...

    Can I use switch1 as an IA in Scene Mode?

    MFC-101 Mark III Firmware 3.08 PerfMode Preset Bank size 0 What I want is: Edit-> MIDI, IA01 Axe-Fx PARAEQ4 (I'm using this as a lead boost) I save that and when I edit it again, that setting appears to be saved. But it seems to keep acting like it is programmed for functionality Scene-1...

    Unearthing gems in older product threads

    I had a great night last night playing with Reverb predelay and it gave me that "ahhhh, yessss!!!" feeling when creating southern rock sounds. I was hunting for something else and google steered me to an old version of Yek's How Tos' page, and the effects section of that thing is gold. I landed...

    Less is More?

    One pattern I've seen in my noodling and patch creation is that the most basic sound is often the best. I'm not sure if this is a general truism or just my lack of sophistication in using effects. Sometimes within a session I will add parallel cabs and amp blocks just because I can, and within...

    Is this an example of phase problems or something else?

    My setup: Axe FX II XL, connected to 2 Atomic CLRs on poles. I sit/stand in the middle facing them. I've noticed across different patches, that the volume level gets squirrely sometimes- it will be stable for some length of time and then suddenly pan back and forth a bit. It's not sinusoidal...

    Bug? Bug: Can't click to directly type values in controller Min/Max value fields

    It's been there for a few releases at least, and it always annoys me but never stops me from what I'm trying to do. Other fields you can click the mouse and directly type in a number, but these ones you have to use the mouse to "turn the knob" by left-click and dragging up or down. That is a...

    Wish MFC-101 able to scroll patches and not engage until scene selected

    I really like the scenes functionality, and use it extensively for changing sounds within a song. Sometimes I want to switch patches in the middle of a song, or when practicing with the band to quickly hear how different potential patches sound with the overall mix. I find it very annoying to...

    Need help with Wah, Auto-engage, and scene changes "remembering"

    Hi Gang, I'm using 18.01 I want to make sure the bypassed Wah with auto-engage stays in the bypass state as I switch between scenes. If I'm in a scene with the Wah engaged and change to another scene, the old scene "remembers" that the Wah block is active and keeps it turned on. Then when I go...

    FW17.04 x/y settings not saved for controllers in wah block [NOT A BUG]

    Background: I have a Credence Clearwater Revival patch set up with multiple scenes, where external controller 2 is used differently in different scenes. In one scene, I use a pedal to control the mix of a volume tremolo for the Born on the Bayou type of sound, to ease it in and out between...

    Auto-Off wah feature use an additional variable rather than block bypass mode

    OK, I'm getting into this scenes thing now and organizing my workflow around it. I have a patch divided into scenes. One scene I want External Controller 1 to be my Wah, and a Trem/Pan block is bypassed. In another scene, I want External Controller 1 to be mix controller for Trem/Pan block...

    Potential bug FW 15.06 + 15.03: Block bypass state not correctly saved [FIXED]

    This may be an obscure pilot error, but I tried my best to rule that out... I'm doing all actions from the front panel. Pan/Tremolo block, effect type Tremolo, I want to bypass it in some scenes in a patch. It disabled fine for Scene 5 and consistently stays on as I intend in Scenes 3 and...

    Wish step sequencer step value entry

    I'm a new AxeFX user in the last week or two. Loving the process of getting to know it! I couldn't figure out how to make the Arpeggiator play out nicely into a synth block (that was my first idea for how to do the On the Run thing from Pink Floyd). It was playing the arpeggiated guitar notes...
