    Using old presets with updated FW?

    Hi all, Whats the deal with using older presets from the axechange with newer version of firmware? i want to see what they sound like, wondering if they will work at all, or just need tweaking but will be roughly right? some from FW10, some from FW19 but im now on Q3 cheers Joe

    Has the Axe-FX II Achieved 99% amp modeling accuracy?

    coming back at this after 2 years out, i dont mind how close they are to a real amp. i care if i can get a good sound im happy with for what i want to use it for. id probably never find the sound im happy with even with the real amp, so im basically doomed haha

    Setting up a cab so it's safe all the time.

    Cheers. I forgot that bit too. The thing I can't remember was something to do with setting the 'amp' level in the axe fx preset so that you can effectively turn the matrix up to max if the occasion calls for it but with no worries. Wish I could re meme this stuff haha.
