    Another Free Soundtoys plugin

    All free until April 1st. Pace protected, but ilok not needed. Just a Soundtoys account and an ilok account; both free, and worth having for the periodic freebies Soundtoys releases. I have Little Microshift, Little Radiator and Little Primaltap so far, and they are all great! Link with code...

    Caligula's Horse

    Saw an awesome prog metal band here in Canberra on the weekend (and this is kind of a rare occurrence). They certainly have their own thing going on, but to give it a bit of context I would say that if you loved Haken you will probably love this too. They borrow a little from Djent, but I reckon...

    Nature Boy

    A nice mellow start to the new year for me. I'm not really much of a "Jazz Guitar" guy normally - I like my jazz guitar with lots of Fusion: Mclauglin, Di Meola, Gambale etc. Never herd of Irving Ashby before, but.. oh my. Sleek, fleet yet understated lines on the guitar that support the song...

    More custom FAS stuff

    It seems a little greedy to be asking for more, what with the embarrassment of riches we have here. Still maybe Cliff seems to be pretty responsive to what the users want, and I doubt I'm the only person that wants this: more custom FAS creations, please. I would love to see what else Cliff...

    Axe edit version numbering

    I have been thinking for some time that it would be cool if the Axe Edit version number was brought into step with the Axe Fx Firmware number it is designed to service, i.e. if you are on Axe Fx firmware 16.4 you would need Axe Edit 16.4 or newer. Not a big deal, just a minor convenience...

    New Ibanez Guitars With Korg Kaoss Pads Built In

    Video demo is a bit lame and disappointing. Nevertheless I see potential in this idea.

    It's a parenting win when...

    ... you have to break up an argument between your kids only to find out that your 3 year old daughter is mad at your 5 year old son because SHE was listening to the new Cynic album and HE took it off to listen to the new Opeth album. And they are both over "Frozen". Share your stories :)

    Axe Edit "Notes" tab

    Just had a thought for Axe edit... It would be nice to have a "notes" tab associated with each block. Something user editable and saved to a file (XML?) that could be shared. Then someone (not Cliff) could copy and paste the relevant notes from the Wiki. Since it is user generated content, it...

    NGD - Fretless!

    So I have had an idea in my head for quite some time that I wanted to try a fretless guitar, and I just took the plunge and bought one. Very reasonable price from Kurt at Rondo music, and excellent service (again). Freight to Australia wasn't cheap, but what ya gonna do? The guitar...

    Examples of excellent vibrato

    Inspired by the technique thread, can you post examples of artists who you think have excellent vibrato. I'll get Dave Gilmour out of the way straight away, but I also think Yngwie Malmsteen deserves a mention. Seriously. Who does it for you?

    Digital vs Analog, the myths.

    A pill for perfect pitch?

    A drug called Valproic Acid has been to shown to increase the capacity for test subjects to learn perfect pitch. Not quite sure what to think of that, but it sure is fascinating from a neuroscience and developmental psychology standpoint. Abstract from the paper: "Absolute pitch, the...

    Axe II vs Rectifier

    About a year a go, not long after getting my Axe Fx II, I took it (along with my 2:90 and Recto 4x12) over to my brother in law's place for a jam. I was actually rather disappointed at how it measured up against his recto head and 4x12. Today, several firmware revisions, and much learning on...

    Phoenix Pro type block

    If this existed in the Axe, I would be more inclined to share some of my own recordings ;) Its like autotune for shredders 8) If anyone can do it, it is Cliff.

    Wish IA by position

    I don't know how feasible this is but I would like to be able to assign an IA by position in the grid (ie. 2nd row, 6th column). The reason I want this is to set up a row of IA switches lie this: (Comp)(drive)(amp x/y)(phaser/flanger/chorus/rotary whatever modulation effect I set up for this...

    Official thread request

    Could we please have an official thread about Axe Edit? Even if it just says "there is no official release date yet for the next version of Axe edit", just make it a sticky and lock it so that I can have a quick peek to see if anything has changed and not sift through all the "use the front...

    No sound to Out 2

    Probably something I have overlooked, but I can't seem to get any sound out of Out 2 on my Axe Fx II. Even if I set "Copy Out 1 to Out 2" to "on", I move the cables from out 1 to out 2 and lose the sound. This is the first time I have tried to use out 2 since I got the Axe, and this is a...

    Sansamp Bass Driver

    Apologies if this has been covered, but I was thinking about what pedals and so forth I would be keeping, and this was one that stuck out for me. I think this with a nice (tube?) pre and a compressor is a pretty nice rock bass recording rig, and if I could do it all in the Axe, all the better :)

    Two front panel inputs

    Not a biggie, but it would be a hardware change so it would need to be an Axe III feature. Would it be possible to make the front panel input on the Axe stereo (TRS)? The Axe seems to attract people who might also use piezo equipped electrics, and it would be... well... tidier.

    Agile 8 string

    I just bought an Agile 8 string from Rondo music, and I just have to commend them on their customer service. For whatever reason they choose to do all their business through the website and email (no telephone), but my emails were replied to within about 10 or 20 minutes. There was a small...

    Input 2 to USB Axe 3/4

    As detailed in another thread, this would be a great way to integrate a Synth with the AXE as a compact recording solution, and hopefully would not be a hard thing to add on. Basically, what I would like is an option in the I/O menu that sends the raw (unaffected) signal present at input 2 to...

    Using input 2 for recording / MIDI notes over USB

    Hi all, Just recently got my Axe II (And what a wonderful bit of kit it is!). Having trouble with something, and since manual reading/forum searching/wiki didn't help I thought it was worth an ask here. What I am trying to do is set up a powerful and compact laptop rig for composing. How I...
