    Newbie looking for some guidance on chug tones

    What setup(s) are you coming from? You mentioned using headphones with your other amps, so just curious what those are to get a feel for what you are going for or trying to replicate. Like others have mentioned, bands and soundclips that have a vibe you like woupd be helpful also for getting a...

    Seymour Duncan Powerstage 170 or 700?

    I personally opted for the 700w, but I was able it get it on sale for 15% off about a year and a half ago. It sounds great quiet and absolutely rips when loud. Granted, I was coming from using a Matrix Gt1000fx, which i got before the 1600fx was a thing, so i was used to running a high powered...

    Logic Pro X Users: How Can I Enable Advanced Tools and Disable Input Monitoring?

    I knew it was something simple I was missing. I feel foolish because I honestly didn't even realize the Audio Preferences got several subsections added once I enabled the Advanced Tools. Thank you so much. Also, your ambient presets are absolutely amazing.

    Logic Pro X Users: How Can I Enable Advanced Tools and Disable Input Monitoring?

    Hello everyone, I know this is probably a problem with a simple solution, but I've done my best to Google/figure it out myself and have not been able to so please hear me out. I just got Logic Pro the other day and am attempting to record some tracks with my Axe Fx 3. Before I get to the issue...

    GGD: Studio Cabs

    Really weird that the exported files are pretty inconsistent with properly converting via Axe edit and Cab Lab. Every preset I made/exported (regardless of how elaborate) on release day would not convert properly and I saw loads of people on the GGD Facebook page report the same issue. The fact...

    GGD: Studio Cabs

    @Pwrmac7600 It exports a WAV, but the file is noticeably longer than other companies WAV files (at least the ones in other companies 48khz/Fractal folder), which i'm assuming is why converting without trimming the files cause issues, but again, I honestly don't know for certain...

    GGD: Studio Cabs

    Sorry about that. I mentioned it buts its kind of buried in that first paragraph. If you just convert to Syx via Cablab (or any other means) before all this cutting and fading, you get no audio output from the IR block in the unit when loading one of these IRs (both Axe fx and even Helix). To be...

    GGD: Studio Cabs

    I bought it. The plugin sounds great and the IRs are definitely high quality BUT in my experience, its not so straightforward to load the IRs created into the Axe Fx or even Helix (I have no personal experience with other things like Kemper etc). You currently cannot just export the file from...

    Vendor Poll - What cabs do you want?

    I'm probably in the minority given all these other recommendations, but I'd love to see something with Celestion Alnico Creams (preferably in a closed back 2x12 or 4x12). There's really not enough IRs of them out there I can find and the ones that I have from another manufacturer are good, but I...

    Vendor York Audio presents the MES 412 in .Wav format based on Mesa!

    Bought all the packs. For anybody who already owns the Bipolar pack and is worried this may sound too similar to the Mesa in that pack, rest easy. It sounds like a Mesa, sure, but this is most definitely its own thing and I love it. The Bipolar pack is fantastic and I will always love it and use...

Just gonna have to rip the bandaid off and buy 'em all before...

    Need help with REALLY bad latency on new computer + other weird issues (USB audio XL+)

    Thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately, it didn't effect the latency at all, which doesn't make much sense to me. I just plugged the Axe Fx back into my Mac and switched back to 1024 just to see what happened and had 0 latency. Not sure what the heck is going on with this computer.

    Bug? Angle Severe Tremolo Picking Tracking issue [FIXED]

    Not sure if this is a bug since I never owned the actual amp, but ever since updating to FW 18, the Savage amp seems to have a hard time tracking tremolo picking. While I'm not the world's greatest tremolo picker, I A/B'ed several amps (5153, 5150, Rectos, USA lead, etc.) and none have the...

    NGD: Port City 2x12 OS Wave and Matrix GT800FX

    You can't go wrong with Port City. I have the same cab but black with the Bluesbreaker cloth. Bar none, the best 2x12 (and one of the best all around cabinets) I've tried. Someday, I'll get their monster 4x12, or try the Matrix nl12. I need a band before any of that though.

    Question about Axe FX III and beyond

    Bug(maybe): Weird Occurrence When Using External OD Pedal

    I actually keep the amp in test mode, so theres little to no extra coloring of tone. i have the original spider valve hd100, so it only has a "preamp out" and "power amp in", which seems rather counter-intuitive to me.
