    DISCOVERED SOMETHING - X/Y is GaaaaREAT !

    Don't forget that x/y switching is a great way to do a quick comparison to the sound of a block while your editing/creating patches. Just remember to copy X->Y or Y->X before switching. Then you can change as many parameters on that block at once and compare. It's a good way to get a handle on...

    Clean patches too quiet.

    I thought were were possibly switching guitars on a per song basis as needed. Keith

    Clean patches too quiet.

    I didn't mean to imply to disagree with this but wouldn't it be quicker to have a separate preset for a lower gain guitar and use the "input trim' on the amp page to compensate if needed? All recalled with preset on foot controller... Keith

    Clean patches too quiet.

    Overall this is a gain matching issue. You will never get the cleans as loud as you can get the distortions due to dynamic range of the cleans and low crest factor of the distortions. Bring the level of the distortion patches down to fit where they should be along side the cleans. Keith

    Big Country - Bagpipes

    Try the pitch shifter set one octave up and set the mix until it sounds correct to you. They used to use MXR Pitch Transposers to get that sound. Keith

    Rockman Clean Chorus W/IR's

    I did do some measurements with the chorus off (similar plots). What I did see was somewhat expected that the direct signal had very extended frequency response while the fx (delayed chorus signal) showed signs of a typical analog delay of that time. In the end I opted for less science and...

    Rockman Clean Chorus W/IR's

    The frequency response on the direct (Left Channel) and FX (right channel - chorus) signal was substantial. I was just trying for as much accuracy as I could get. Even then there is a lot happening with the Rockman itself above 10K that was hard to get close to with the Axe. Not sure how...

    Anyone using the crossover?

    I have been working on a patch with the X-over that I will post in the next few days. It does a lot depending on what you want to accomplish. Just what you said keeping FX off of the low frequencies for a tighter low end, having different amounts of distortion on low or high strings (can be...

    Boston Sound - Modeling the Rockman Amplifiers & Modules

    I've just uploaded a patch (with IR's) to emulate the Rockman clean chorus sound (from a Soloist). While the Soloist was a later, cheaper version of the Rockman, the clean sound was pretty close to the X-100 (I owned that before as well) except that the Soloist didn't have any delay or reverb...

    Rockman Clean Chorus W/IR's

    Here is a patch to emulate the clean stereo chorus sound of a Tom Scholz Rockman (the Soloist in this case). This was a staple clean sound for me for a few years back (1988 or so) when running a Korg A3 (& later an A1) as the switching time was so slow I ran a Rockman on the clean stereo chorus...

    Anybody else noticing a few db less for cleans with the II's vs the I's?

    Why not flip the usage of the outputs. Run Out 2 to FOH (thru a direct box to balance it) and run Out 1 (XLR) to the Bryston giving you 6db more gain being balanced. The FOH feed doesn't need the extra gain - just needs to be balanced for the distance and convenient input into the snake. Keith

    Update - Axe II Stock Cabs Freq. Response Curves

    That would be nice but until then (if it ever would happen) I wanted a quick reference document that gave some visual to what I was hearing - hence the PDF so I could print it and keep it handy when programming. Keith

    How Do you get the Volume Up of IR's closer to what Factory ones are?

    Thanks to everyone for the extra input. Haven't been able to get much done for a week due to another bout of pneumonia. Albert - it's not truly a cab IR but a capture of a Rockman Soloist in the Clean Stereo Chorus position. I was using that as a basis for a preset that I will post in the next...

    Technical Question

    Agreed. I was trying to show that the rear inputs were normal or without any "special sauce" processing. Keith Edit: Meant to say "without" above.

    Technical Question

    It doesn't appear that any emphasis is used. Here is a frequency curve of just the AD/DA - analog I/O (left rear for both) with everything is bypassed for the Axe II. I had this curve from some testing I did in posting the update to the frequency response curves of the factory speaker...

    Update - Axe II Stock Cabs Freq. Response Curves

    I have updated the PDF in the OP to make the correction to one of the IR graphs that was mistakenly credited to Redwirez and not to Ownhammer. My apologies again to Kevin for the the error. Thanks, Keith

    Update - Axe II Stock Cabs Freq. Response Curves

    Since drosei first posted the curves on the original Axe I figured I'd post the curves for the Axe II stock cabinets since many have changed. The cabinets that stayed the same look the same obviously as what drosei previously posted but I assembled everything into a PDF file for printing so it...

    How Do you get the Volume Up of IR's closer to what Factory ones are?

    Matt that could certainly work ok but I was trying to get them to where FM didn't come in to play and louder ones sound better. Obviously there is a way for them to be equal to the factory ones - just not sure if I have the necessary tools to do it. Thanks, Keith

    How Do you get the Volume Up of IR's closer to what Factory ones are?

    I've been working on some IR's to accompany some patches I'm working on to post for everyone but find my IR's a little low in volume. I am normalizing them and that has helped but still a bit low. Any tips from Cliff, Ownhammer, Redwirz or anyone who has been thru this? For the record I am...

    Device Not Connected - Mac This time

    Well I got it to work. Not sure what had changed except I made sure that Midi channels were selected on the Midi tab under Settings. Showed up without a hitch in PT 9.0.2. Thanks for the help. Keith

    Device Not Connected - Mac This time

    Did a search on this but it was PC related. Spent a few hours today loading Axe Edit & USB drivers on a Mac Pro so I can upgrade the firmware on my new Axe II to 3.02. End result is Axe Edit does not see the Axe FXII but it does show up in the Sound Tab of the System Preferences. It shows...
