    Hard rock song I wrote (Pete Thorn preset content)

    Just getting into recording so forgive me if amateurish. Also my singing is, well, bad, so thanks for gritting your teeth through it. (I try to bury it in effects). Hang in there at least for the first solo, which I think really demonstrates how great the III sounds! Main riff and Rhythm guitar...

    How to collaborate with person who has 44.1khz?

    Just started getting into recording. Been recording in Logic at 48khz because of AxeFx limitation. (Not trying to open up that debate). Now I want to exchange tracks with my singer who only has GarageBand, which is limited to 44.1. What’s the best way to make this work? Thanks.

    Success! That was the last problem. Was monitoring through my computer not through the Axe. Plugged into the headphone out of Axe and could hear the reamping. Thanks so much for your help.

    Help with reamping

    No just Axe to computer through USB. Axe is set up as both output device and input device in DAW. Thanks for trying to help. I think I’m just missing something simple and fundamental. Edit: going to sleep. I’ll check everything again tomorrow.

    Just getting into recording and I see all these tons of guitar plug-ins, a lot of them emulating classic amps and effects. Can’t imagine needing any of them given the Axe.
