    Clean Sound for FOH and Tube amp

    First crack at a clean sound with my PRS. Pretty standard chain with a dual clean amp setup. Tell me what you think. Output level 1 controls FOH and Output 2 controls your tube amp. Cable to your amp should plug into Output 2 FX send left on the back of your AXE FX II. I also uploaded this...

    So I spent a little time in the platinum room at GC today...

    Tony Higbee, I believe is the Platinum Room Manager there. Bought my 3rd Power American Dream from him before discovering the Axe FX. Nice guy and he doesn't mind letting you play all the Trussarts, Suhrs, Andersons, vintage Strats and Teles......my $3,200.00 amp sits in the corner. I do plan...

    Dialing in live tone

    You are on it. Increase your mids and lighten up the compression if you use it. Has a tendency to squash your tone. Sometimes a little grit or flipping to the bridge position will clear things up.

    Any suggestions for dialing in a good clean sound?

    Good advice. I get beautiful sounds in my studio that all disappear during the first song at a gig. Where did my guitar sound go? Funny how well the thinner sometimes harsh sounds fill out well when you add a keyboard, drums and bass.

    Any suggestions for dialing in a good clean sound?

    By the way, I agree "useless" was not a good word choice. I just believe it would be even more helpful to know what guitars are played by the responding parties.

    Any suggestions for dialing in a good clean sound?

    Sorry that came off the way it did. I believe my response was very useful. Walk into a reputable music store and tell someone you want a good clean tone. You think they will not ask what guitar you play. If people would tell there whole story then it would be much more helpful to the OP and...

    Any suggestions for dialing in a good clean sound?

    Guitars No one should post a useful setting reply without telling you what kind of guitar they use, because it will be different with all. Almost useless.

    Gibson fights back!!!

    I love when people who don't know anything about a topic comment with their opinions. I am from Memphis and know the story well. This was a procedural issue that was overblown by the government trying to make a statement. The settlement was necessary to stop the company from losing millions of...

    "NO INPUT CLOCK" (SOLVED)

    Performed recent install of 12.03. Disconnected MFC-101 cable prior to install per instructions. Shortly after a message displayed on the Axe FX II screen "No Input Clock". After several power down attempts, reinstalled 12.02 but experienced same results after power down process.

    Next brand/model of speakers above Atomic CLR's?

    Scott, I ordered two Active CLRs today. I play at a church for approximately 300 and in a band at smaller to medium venues. We have a very nice new state of the art sound system at church. Our sound team are not professionals but do a pretty good job. I am wondering about the best...

    Somebody is getting a pair of Atomic CLR's for Christmas!

    I was on the wait list a little over 4 months, placed my order at 3PM and they were shipped at 5PM. Nice.

    Check out YouTube videos by KKM music and Scott Peterson. They will give you a big head start on the AXE FX

    Somebody is getting a pair of Atomic CLR's for Christmas!

    I just ordered two Active Atomic cabs a few minutes ago. I went on the list first of August. When you receive your email you have a couple of days to act on it before it expires, so keep checking. I am parting ways with my QSC K10s more than likely.

    Matrix Amp with 1 x 12 cab or AXE FX into a powered CLR

    Thanks for all of your replies. I am leaning toward the GT1000FX into a passive cab. I like the thought of getting additional weight into my rolling rack and out of my monitor. I run the AXE FX II and a VoiceLive rack with a Furman power conditioner. The passive cab should be lighter and...

    Matrix Amp with 1 x 12 cab or AXE FX into a powered CLR

    I usually go FRFR with my Axe FX II in our church and use a powered QSC 10 as a stage monitor. I am supposed to be eligible to purchase an active CLR this month. What are the opinions on a setup of the Axe II into FRFR with the CLR as a stage monitor vs. purchasing a Matrix amp and using a...

    MFC Availability 2013?

    I received an email on 6-3 that I am on the next batch list and should be receiving an invite within a week or two from that date. It has been a week, so I am hoping to hear soon. Not sure when I went on the list, but it was shortly after buying my Axe on 2-20.

    MFC Availability 2013?

    I purchased my Axe FX II on 2-20 and went on the waitlist shortly after when I tried to purchase through the website, but I am not sure of the date. Would be nice to know where I am on the list.

    HELP! Lost Presets!

    I went in and loaded the newer software version. I had previously loaded 10.00 because I went to my downloads on my Mac and grabbed it without thinking. I have the presets back in the machine and all is good. Now for the question about what I did wrong originally. I was using Axe Edit on...

    Axe FX II to FRFR and Output 2 to 3rd power amp

    I would like to send a stereo signal out to my Powered QSC speakers from Output 1 XLR and an effects only signal (no amp or cab) to a 3rd Power amp. Can someone let me know the best way to accomplish this, or refer me to a thread? I would hope Volume 1 would then control the FRFR and Volume 2...

    At Venue with Soundguy: What reactions have you had regarding stereo setup?

    I had noticed that when I run through two QSC 10s the sound is much more full and rich, but I had contributed that to a "spaciality" or separation of the sound field, issue with the close proximity of the monitors. So your opinion is I am losing some of the processed signal by not running in...

    At Venue with Soundguy: What reactions have you had regarding stereo setup?

    Are any settings on the forum, both user contributed or factory, setup that they will not provide all effects in a mono situation? Does the AXE FX II send all of the programmed signal through the Left XLR output 1? Our FOH board is a stereo board, but I usually send a mono signal to simplify.

    Axe fx 2 with tube power amp & cab question

    I went to rehearsal and balanced the four settings I was using at 95 DB in front of my QSC 12 stage speaker. This was at a church so you will probably set it higher depending on your band mix. I bought an electronic db meter for this purpose. I tried balancing by ear in my studio and it is...

    How Long Before MFC's Available?

    The accolades for the Axe FX II are all well deserved. The point of this thread, however, is trying to find out when the MFC-101 will be available. I bought my FX II at the end of last year and I still do not have the Edit program or the MFC-101. I have been on a waiting list since the first...

    Do I need a powered amp?

    I am currently running my Axe FXII into two QSC 12 powered speakers. Will I gain anything by adding a powered amp such as the Matrix series, or is it unnecessary?

    Piezo and Electric dual tones?

    Many are now going to a stereo out electric and Piezo. Are there any patches out there which address this? Dual path, one side electric with overdrive capabilities and one side Piezo Acoustic. Preferably set to a stereo send to the board splitting the two signals.

    How to set up Axe FX II and Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro

    I have seen questions about this on the forum, so I thought I would help. This is from memory, but I believe it is correct. Go to I/O button on the face of the unit. Choose Midi. Set midi to "Omni" This will allow the Voodoo Lab to communicate with the AXE FX over all channels. Go to...

    Hey everyone, new to AxeFx II and trying to use Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro

    Go to YouTube and look up the video on setting up GCP with the Eleven Rack. It is pretty much the same. Go to the I/O menu on the Axe fx and select midi. I believe it is the top selection to Omni. It is all the way at the end I believe. Then just follow the instructions on setting up the...
