    Live Looping Rig (Ableton / Axe FX III)

    Thanks for all the help with my setup a few months back. I got it going and then all of the sudden the midi on Ableton wasn’t responding to incoming messages and I left it until seeing this post. I’m using the GT16 for midi control on the AxeIII and haven’t switched up to the FC12 as of yet...

    What amp did the Axe-Fx III make you discover and fall in love with?

    I love most all of them. I found out that I love mid gain and lower gain sounds after owning the Axe. Badger 18 and 30 CAE Clean XTC Blue (vintage channel with a pedal in front for more Gain), lots of nuance depending on playing touch.

    Why is there no "Axe-Fx IIl Tone Match" section in this forum?

    Thats why I wonder why there has been advice about performing the tone match in a particular room. Whats the difference? I’m sure there is something to be gained from room reverb but what would it be? It seems like a filter wouldn’t have the ability to capture the nuances of reverb.
