    what to use with the axe.amp? clr? matrix?

    I've bought one 612 Eon, a few weeks back. I first thought it would be an "inbetweener" until availability of clr's in europe, but I must say I'm not dissapointed. Every FRFR speaker will sound different, so "true" FRFR is more marketing than anything, IMHO. But the eons do a good job. I own a...

    First time it failed me...any ideas?

    To update you guys: I switched the expression pedal for a volume pedal using ts-ts->trs, and it seems to work now. So I guess the expression pedal was faulty. Oddly Both the gordius and the mfc seemingly handled the pedal as expexted. Callibration was no problem, and pedal position was...

    First time it failed me...any ideas?

    What I did so far is buy a MFC, connect it through ethercon. To rule out cable and controller. Worked as a charm.....until I connected my expression pedal to the MFC. So that pedal seems to be the culprit. Has anybody experience something similar?

    First time it failed me...any ideas?

    Thanks guys. I bought the spare cable brand new yesterday. So it's unlikely that one is faulty too. The new cable haso slightly fatter pins so with that I am able to phantom power the gordius. But wiggle the midi plug at the axe end interrupts the power Wiggles at the gordius end have no...

    First time it failed me...any ideas?

    I got a spare cable, but alas that did not help. I did make it clear hat the problem is. Seems the MIDI IN connector is faulty. The new cable probably has bigger pins, so it does connect the phantom power to my footswitch. But a little wiggle and my footswitch is off. Is this repaired easily...

    First time it failed me...any ideas?

    Hi guys, After about 3 yrs of no malfunction whatsoever with my setup, last night at rehearsel I had non stop chrashes of the axe fx II. This is my (normal) setup: Axe FX II, controlled via a Gordius little giant (on phantom power, so power supply in the back of the axe and a 7-pin midi cabel...

    Fremen Quantum 2.0 presets

    Hi Fremen, Bought your presets last week, and finaly got a chance to check them out properly. Thanks alot, must have been alot of work! I often see multiple "tone shaping" blocks in your presets, like a few PEQ's and MultiBand Comp. Although it's clear to me what they do, It isn't so much...

    Is there a Utility for converting MKII and XL patches?

    It's just a pitty that all the gurus on here have moved to a XL (asumming they got sponsored ;) ) It has become alot harder to follow new insights, uses, tweaks when you cannot load their patches to actually see what is going on. For me personaly it would cost way more in money than I would...

    Demo: Crazy - Pink

    I use the HBE with a IR from Fremen called "GH ThisOne" for my lead. For rythm I use the BE with a Peter Thorn cab "PT DIV BY 13 G12M25" The PT one I often use for recording. It has a nice high-end that works amazing for double and/or quad tracked parts. That high-end gets in my way at louder...

    Anyone know of a mixer that can do this?

    Hi Rotaholic, I think there are several options for the mixer part. * Find one with post-fader direct-outs. * Find one with subgroups (with "direct out") * Find one with enough aux channels (you'll need 6 i guess, with the main you get 8 channels out = 4x stereo) Mixers with these features...

    Any tips for a new FRFR user.

    I recently got a Q12 too. I use it with the Matrix GT1000FX. I made a similar switch from a 2x12 V30 to (for now 1) Q12. It's totally different soundwise....concept wise even. So i think its hard to compare. FRFR is not just cab modeling, but Mic modeling too (and sometimes even some post...

    When is the new AXE EDIT coming ???????

    I think you are right. And I also think communication is a big part of it. In another thread I already suggested a public release planning for both the firmwares and AE. Get rid of the surprise factor and manage expectations. It's about that. "It's ready when it's ready" just doesn't live up to...

    Powered Speakers vs. Passive Speakers vs. Guitar Cab

    Hi EVH, a pro of using a seperate amp like a Matrix GT1000Fx is the the fact you can use it with any cab you like, be it good ol' guitar cabs or FRFR. Sound wise there is not going to be too much of a difference between a GT1000FX and a (passive) Q12 or using the active version direct. The GM50...

    Volume matching presets...what knobs do you turn?

    Hi, I was wondering what approach you guys use to match or set your patch volumes. Is there a 'correct' way? I tend to regard my Axe FX as a real amp and set the 'amp level param' of my patches to -10dB, and use the MV to set the volume of my liking. Of course this has some impact on the...

    Axe FX II screen 'flickering'

    [REQ] Lead tones

    When is the new AXE EDIT coming ???????

    I'm a senior software developer and team lead myself. There are all kinds of approaches to this that, in my opinion, would be way better than an answer like "It's ready when it's ready". Software development is never easy, but it is perfectly possible to give an ETA and to manage expectations...

    Save Tone Match source frequency response with TM preset

    Why not the possibility to save it "next to" presets like you can do with an IR? (user cab) That would be pretty neat!

    A couple of questions regarding the AXE's accessories

    I opted for the Gordius Little Giant 2, and I'm ever so happy with the controller. Very versatile and very very small! It can do the 2 way communication for the tuner, which works like a charm. Power over Midi, so only one cable to the front of the stage. I have set it up as follows. There...

    After the first night of fiddling

    Ordered and expecting on Monday!

    That is interesting, I'm wondering if fitting a coax into a 1x12 cab is going to get a good result. I know there is more to FRFR than just the drive, but then again non of the FRFR speaker solutions sound the same. They are all more or less FRFR. Anyone tried that? Using a coax in a guitar cab...

    What do you guys think of the audio quality using the 4CM method?

    Hi all, I don't own an AxeFx (yet) but I've been running my TC G-System with 4CM for a few years now. (GTR -> TC -> JVM410H Gtr-In -> FX) It took me a while to get the quality I was aiming for and knew should be possible with the G-System. A lot has to do with setting the right/optimal levels...
