    Desk/workstation with rack mounting capability ideas?

    Looking to purchase some sort of desk workstation that has rack mount capabilities for the Axe III and other music equipment. Looking for ideas on what others here use. Thanks, Ken H

    Would like some recommendations for powered studio monitors and headphones to use with the III

    I ended up buying the Sennheiser HD600 headphones as a few people recommended. Sound great. Still haven't bought powered monitors yet.

    Would like some recommendations for powered studio monitors and headphones to use with the III

    With the current Fractal sale, I finally upgraded from an original II to the III. I am not currently gigging so I mostly play in my home office which is maybe 15'x15'. I am not needing anything as powerful as the QSC monitors I used when I was gigging. Mostly just playing along with music or...

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 6.00 Public Beta

    I don't comment much on here but it doesn't make sense to me that users who have the option to stay with what they have now are holding back what would seem like majority of Mark I/II owners to get more out of their unit if they would so chose? Either way thanks Cliff for your support over the...

    Windows 10 Axe-FX playback issue

    I was having similar audio playback issues in Win10 when setting the AxeFx as my playback device. Turns out I had my laptop connected to a docking station and the USB going out from that. Once I connected the USB directly to a port on my laptop I was able to hear audio from my computer thru...

    Anybody have an updated "How Soon Is Now" patch

    This patched posted quit a few firmwares ago sounded really good. However now it is not sounding so hot with v19. I tried changing the amp but once I did that the panner effect seems to disappear in the sound. Wondering if anybody has an updated version of this patch? Thanks, Ken

    Extreme's "It's a monster" playthrough

    Hey Fremen sweet playing! What is the run you play at around 2:04? I have the guitar tab book and they way they have that run tabbed seems different than the way you and others I've seen play it.

    VAN HALEN - 5150 (1986) video w/patch

    I don't post too often but I'd like to thank you for the trip down memory lane! Your playing is top notch! This album came out around the time I started getting really interested in playing guitar. Your videos remind me just how great a player Eddie was/is. Time to go back and listen to 5150...

    Try this patch. I just altered Mark Day's Late Night patch a little - all props go to Mark. I use this on an Ibanez JS2000 with DiMarzio FRED pickup. FYI - this patch is for the main "He-Man" song not the "Flight of the bumble bee" intro.

    When To Reset Blocks?

    Also, parameters from other pages in the amp block are reset as well.

    Has anyone attempted a Sykes/Blue Murder era tone?

    I am no expert but to me it sounds like he is using some chorus to fatten up his rhythm tone. Always liked his guitar tone. Use to listen to those albums a lot.

    When To Reset Blocks?

    Here is the problem I don't like about resetting amp blocks - it resets everything in the amp block i.e GEQ and Speaker parameters. I use a lot of Mark Day and Fremen presets and when I reset it changes these parameters which seem to have significant affect on the sound of these presets for me...

    Fractal Audio thanked in the liner notes of Satriani's latest cd

    I know it was already pointed out that the AxeFx II was in the studio with Joe. Thought that was kind of cool they get a shout out in his latest cd notes.

    New Joe Satriani album listen to the whole album

    Big Satriani fan here but the last couple of albums haven't really done it for me. Liking what I am hearing so far. Reminds me of Crystal Planet stuff which was prob my all time fav. Listening Booth on MSN Music hopefully link works otherwise it is on MS listening booth

    Fremen presets - V 10.02

    He is using two synths per scene programmed for different chords. Per scene you can change the synth chords with an external pedal and then if you change the scene you get the availability of 2 more synth chords. Possibility of 16 different chord changes I beleive.

    Video : farewell to V7 and a nice idea (delay's feedback controlled by enveloppe)

    After playing thru just the patches on bank C I have to say these are some of the best sounding patches I have tried yet for my setup at least. I would be more than happy to contribute to a fund. Hopefully, v8 won't screw with them too much. Thanks again Fremen!

    Video : farewell to V7 and a nice idea (delay's feedback controlled by enveloppe)

    Video : farewell to V7 and a nice idea (delay's feedback controlled by enveloppe)

    Really nice presets! I tried PMing you but I got this "fremen has exceeded their stored private messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space." So I am sure you are swamped with requests for your presets. "

    Guitar you're playing?

    Use the PRS most but just recently took the Donnie out of storage to try thru the Axe-Fx II. Really liking the combination!

    Why does the Wah auto engage on the V6 presets

    Same issue here. When there is a wah in a patch and I switch to that patch the wah will kick on like a couple of seconds after I switch to that patch. Since I don't use the wah I always just put a shunt in its place.

    Ambient Pitch Looper

    Cool patch. I am noticing I too am getting what sounds like "clipping artifacts" just like in Philippe's recording. Any clues as what "block" could be adjusted to get rid of this "clipping"? Guitar volumn is not hit red so it is not my guitar input. Thanks.
  39. KenH

    Looking for a solo tone like this...

    To me it sounds kind of like a lead tone that Satriani has been using over the last couple of records. Which probably consists of overdrive/fuzz pedal into a POG. Joe Satriani - Super Colossal (Live 2006) - YouTube

    Drum Machine Software Recommendations

    Yeah I am going to download the demo version and check it out this weekend. Might be more of what I am needing since I am not really a drummer and don't want to spend a lot of time working on drum parts. Just want something that sounds good and can get going easily so I can record ideas with.

    Anybody buy EZ drummer and upgrade to Superior Drummer 2 using the crossgrade package? Looks like I could save about $25 going that route instead of the buying Superior Drummer out-right on Amazon.

    Trouble Shooting Yek's Patches ....

    "I have a couple of global amp blocks. For one reason or another (probably a bug) Axe-Edit (when saving) links all amp blocks to a global spot, incl. amps which aren't linked to a global at all. This happens only to the "X" mode of amp blocks. You get no sound because the preset is trying to...

    no sound after patch is loaded

    You sound like you are experiencing the same issue I have with some of Yek's presets. Patches that I think he borrowed from others which do not use a global amp work fine for me when loaded up. Here is what I have to do to get sound. Goto the amp block, scroll thru the global amps until it is...
