    Best setup ever! AX8 + SD powerstage + Matrix cab

    solo starts around 2:10, you should get a grasp about the tone, consider that I didn't had a chance to hear it in front of the stage and that is recorded with a phone. it's just a bassguy + fet boost and a OH 4x12 marshall cab. I tried to tune it at moderated volume at home :D

    Best setup ever! AX8 + SD powerstage + Matrix cab

    Saturday night I've had a gig and this was my setup. Let me say I've had the best tone ever and it was so convenient!! The FOH always had the same signal and I could tune my stage volume on the fly without affecting it! Then the Matrix (guitar) cab it's just few kg to carry, it was a dream and...

    Reality check tonight

    I'm still not sure about what setup do you have but in my experience, unless everyone is using IEM (or at least monitoring), the best combo is solid state amp + guitar cab. Anything else is less than ideal. Maybe you can get passable results if you were the only guitar in the band, but it's...

    Guitar sound doesn't cut through with band

    If you are running a solid state power amp into a guitar cab you need to disable cab modeling. If it's a full range cab I second this:

    Far from it, I don't know nothing aboutn the internals but I guess it's a real time OS, more similar to that of industrial machines than to a computer. The revolution of windows like OS came just from the ability to run on different hardware (at the expense of performance), but when real...

    What kind of effect is this? Tremolo and?

    Oh I thought tone matching was more general, not exlusively using the tone match block! I tried but it doesn't seem to make a lot of difference... I also tried to use a sequencer for the filter. It's good but it's still missing something, I'm trying to get some information from the guy who...
  22. A

    What kind of effect is this? Tremolo and?

    Nice idea! I tried delay --> filter sweep --> tremolo, not bad but it's still missing something... his filter is more juicy. I also added a volume swell... there must be something else like a compressor or something.

    Show us your MFC setups! (post your pics)

    You've done what I didn't have the gut to do... I've always thought that the controller above the axefx would be very compact. Would you like to share some other details? Also isn't it too tall to step on?

    Axe2 Preset building

    Hey mate! Yes I get the mixer crossfading thing to compensate low and highs for the cleaner tone during morphing and to add "sweeteners". I've already made a test preset like that. The second CC command is used to restore balance at center for the solo scene isn't it? Or has it any other...

    Axe2 Preset building

    Hi @clarky ! So I think I got the basics down: the principle is 2 amp hard panned, 1 amp switched to Y for a cleat tone, and 1 amp with balance back to center for solo work :D The other bit of information I have is that for cleaning the amp you put a volume controller in front of them (and match...

    Great to hear! I can't wait to see the preset :D Yes but... that's the very reason I thought I would find an fx-loop inside the preset instead of two cab blocks... I'm using an fx-loop block as output to go to a real amp + cab, that's why I couldn't explain 2 cab blocks and no fx-loop inside...
