    Infinity Looper + AX8

    Hello, I have problems patching external processors in the FX Loop. I'm trying with the Infinity Looper and I'm probably doing something wrong. Basically, the output from the looper (pre-recorded stuff) works perfectly, but the input (fx send) is almost inaudible, so I can record anything I...

    Acoustic Patch

    Hello, Here's a short clip direct to the computer via USB. Pickup is a LR Baggs Lyric. I often find more natural just the parametric EQ and reverb than any guitar body IR, which is more effective with a piezo sound, probably. In this case I used the preamp saturation from the cab block too...

    Should I buy the AX8?

    Hello, I own an AXEFX II (first model) + MFC 101, and I love it. I would like however to have something more compact to carry and use it for my acoustic too. My sounds are quite simple: a clean sound with no preamp, just an Avalon U5 IR, and a dumblesque overdrive tone, but I generally use a...

    MFC 101 Tuner

    Hello I have the MFC 101 mark I, and while the tuner on the AxeFXII's screen is accurate (thanks especially to the ball) the tuner on the MFC is slow and very approximative… to the point I have to relay to a peterson clip tuner.
