    Axe FX II works as a interface on my mac now?

    Hi guys, I just updated my Axe FX II to the newest firmware, after that I can use my Axe FX II as a interface. Before that I could only use Axe FX as a interface on my windows 7 setup and on 6.0 and before that I would get mac errors and such. Did I miss out on something?

    Power amp for doing impulse response files

    hi guys, I would love to try out the new IR capture feature. But as stated in the manual, you need a power amp.
