    Strange behavior of input LEDs in Ultra

    Oddly enough, I have a similar problem but can't answer your question. My Ultra stopped playing and now 3 of the 4 input LEDs look like christmas lights. When turned off then on again the lights disappear then quickly climb to "all on" and stay. At least your Axe plays, mine is now silent and I...

    We know tha there will always be critics of anything- any time, any place- my wife says I'm WAY to critical and should focus on the positive. Okay, I POSITIVELY usually dislike ANY mix of a rock band on TV, it doesn't sound any good to my ears compared to live since I've heard live rock...

    Axe-FX II: Doyle Bramhall II - Greenlight Girl

    I rarely get chills listening to music but when something gets to me I get the chills. My chills don't lie, they signify some deeper emotional reaction to what is being said or played, simple as that. You did your best gave and the solo at the end gave them to me. You floored me...

    The history of Axe Fx so far.

    Thanks for the revival, it was fascinating reading. My own story with modeling stated with Vamps then some how I became aware of the Axe and got a standard.

    Buyers Remorse Anyone?

    1+ I had a tone on the Standard that I loved, never got it on my Ultra-should have kept the standard until I got the tone. I am lusting for the II, but will keep my Ultra until i have the tones/sounds I want. The standard was great and probably still is!

    Poll: Axe-fx II vs Empress Compressor shootout (clip included)

    I preferred the first half until the last chord where there was no low end growl to my ears, the second half had a nice low end growl on the last chord that wouldn't stop-that would sound nice at the end of a song.

    violin, organ-ish patches

    Hi Lynn, Sorry to have mislead you but no, it seems that I may have tried the synths on organ but found that being able to play a chord was more important than getting a particular sound.
