    I had a Sobering Experience Last Night

    This overall matches what I have seen - when one guitarist is playing a modeler (even the best one around) and the other has a cranked tube amp, the difference is very noticeable. As a guitarist and an audience member.

    X-LOAD LB-2 Reactive Load Box now available

    I have an OX which is simply spectacular. It has different capabilities/uses than the LB-2. The LB-1 is likely the fairer comparison.

    I/O question

    It's an interesting question - I also have an 18i20 and was considering the same thing. Focusrite control is really useful with setting the mixes for mic'd amps, an OX1, and also my outputs from the Axe-Fx. Not sure if the III will have all that functionality but would love to see it.

    Decisions....tube or solid state power amp?

    I really liked the VHT 2/90/2 I had for live use - sounded great and left power amp sims on in the Axe-Fx. Got a Matrix because of the weight but the tone compared unfavorably to the Fryette so I got rid of it. Now running the Carvin power amp previously mentioned and it is great. A neutral...

    Multiple cabs with Power Amp via FX Loop

    Right, using the FX Loop outs because I don't want the cab block when going to the power amp and cab....I will try these suggestions this weekend and post back. I believe I have the Channel 2 L/R to the Fryette and channel 1 to FOH now. Thanks, Dan

    Multiple cabs with Power Amp via FX Loop

    Hello Everyone - I have a patch that splits off after the Amp Block to a GEQ and then FX Loop. I have the 2 FX Loop sends connected to channels of the power amp (Fryette 2/90/2) with each output connected to a dedicated cab. I only get output on 1 of the channels. Is there something I need to...

    Axe into DAW

    I ended up moving to a focusrite scarlett 18i20 audio interface (USB) to the DAW. The the Axe outputs come into that. This allows one to take mic'd amps, dry guitar signal, Axe-Fx modeling output and record any or all of them at the same time. Much happier this way and a lot of flexibility.

    Wah/Global Block question

    So, I have a Wah (Clyde/Autoengage) set up on a preset. Works great and expected. I added this global block to a different preset and the behavior is completely different. Has a cocked wah sound and doesn't engage. I'm sure it is simple....but what am I missing here? Thanks, Dan

    Looper won't come out of Bypass Mode

    Have a similar issue not being able to consistently engage the looper.....don't really have ax8 running when playing live so here's hoping that the next firmware upgrade fixes this.

    $16 for 4 cables....really? then refreshed and another option (USPS) at 11.60 appears. Weird....and really expensive. Maybe something's off on the web site.

    Power amp suggestions

    For me, the Fryette sounds better than the Matrix (bedroom and live volumes). I leave the power amp modeling on in the Axe. Love the idea of something with less weight but the Matrix seems noticeably flat in comparison. Still good of course and maybe not noticeable if you aren't comparing side...

    Strat John Mayer-esque tones, different gain stages

    So, these are some great sounding patches. I like to run both out 1 and out 2 (through a Fryette 2.90.2) so need to insert an FX Loop somewhere....Any advice on how to adapt a patch like this to be able to go direct as well as to a power amp/cab at the same time? Thanks, Dan

    New Amp Models?

    Yeah it would be a lot of stuff but it could get far with just receiving a list of parameters, their type, and their range. Not suggesting it would work for everything but the basic amp screen and amp types being dynamic would minimize a lot of the questions that occur after a firmware update...

    New Amp Models?

    So, this has never made complete sense to me.....the trailing Axe-Edit version that needs updates for a new firmware version. Is it not possible for Axe-Edit to read the list of Amps from the Axe-Fx II as well as their configurable parameters?

    Looper Usage

    So, trying to use the Looper for the 1st time...Not to test preset/amp changes but to start a rhythm section that can be solo'd over. I tend to use both Out 1 and Out 2 ( 1 with cab sims on and 1 without) Is a good routing all effects->Amp->effects->Looper->Cab and Looper->FxLoop? Seems...

    Simple, Jazzy sounds

    Thanks Guys. It's a PRS McCarty with 57/08 pickups Axe setup is very simple with Studio Compressor, Jazz 120, Medium Hall Reverb, 2x12 Doubleverb D120 (RW) Cab Not usually the stuff I play but there are always a lot of harder rock clips running around so wanted to try something different :)

    Saving AxeFX-Presets with individual tracks with Garageband

    Would be a great capability but would likely take a small piece of plugin software in GarageBand that talked to the Axe. Agree that is a very good feature when working with Amplitube (and the sounds are really good as well).

    My Axe 2 has stopped working. HELP!

    Definitely disconnect from the Mac/USB if you are connected that way.....guaranteed lock-ups on my system. (Axe-Edit is not a factor for me)

    Axe-Fx II Firmware Version 2.00 Up

    Thanks for the suggestion (wasn't expecting a fractal response from a user forum) So, I downloaded the Axe-II factory presets, imported into Axe Manage, and then sent Bank A to the Axe-Fx. Selecting Preset 000 got an initial noise (1 second maybe) and then the entire unit hung....only way to...

    Axe-Fx II Firmware Version 2.00 Up

    So, a little progress but still not good. Rebooting with 'recall' held brings up an empty patch. I can manually add amps, etc. to this blank patch and get sound. All seems well. However, whenever the preset value is changed up (or down) to one of the factory presets, the system is frozen. Does...

    Axe-Fx II Firmware Version 2.00 Up

    I think you got off easy :) My axe is now a brick....rebooted after the firmware install, came back up, reset utility/parameters, rebooted.....now system comes up to a preset with no sound and responds to no key presses (or wheel turns) :(

    Routings and Effects

    So, you can try this effects order most of the time: Filter -> Gain -> Amp -> Cab -> Modulation -> Ambience (Delay/Reverb) Modulation (chorus, etc.) and Ambience can come before or after the amp/cab. Before for traditional pedal approach and after for a bit more clarity. (Make sure to...

    Axe as an interface

    Just select the AxeII as the computer's audio output and the computer audio should appear unprocessed at Out1 (assuming default configuration). If you run your guitar through the guitar input, that will go through the Axe processing at the same time.

    Axe-Fx II as audio interface for guitar

    So, sometimes I just want to get a dry guitar signal to the computer for recording in GarageBand/Amplitube and using Amplitube's effects. I used the 'Bypass' patch, set the 'Out 1' volume all the way up, and adjust the output volume in the patch as well. I do get audio but it is very low...

    USB Audio Questions?

    I will not be buying the Axe II

    So, this isn't really a waiting list for a II as much as a waiting list to get a coupon to deduct it back to the original price.....?? i.e. if they continue to sell at the increased price on the Yahoo store, they still aren't available to ones on the list?
