    pykmax... wth?

    I tried it, and found it somewhat limiting. With a regular pick, I don't even think about holding a pick, with the pykmax, it commands too much of my attention. Bottom line is I could get use to the feel, but the sound of it was unacceptable. It sounded thin and lifeless. Now it's just a...

    Effects status

    I've looked through the manual as well as did a search on the forum. Is there a way for the axe fx to remember the status of an effect, or is this done on the MFC?

    I'm no expert, but this is what I have learned. Running an IEM system in mono is stacking the instruments on top of one another and therefore hard to distinguish. Running in stereo is better, placing them in the mix with some space between them helps the mix not to be so confusing. I have...

    the labels were magnetic, however they were not strong enough. If I were to bump them with my foot, they moved so I used some 3m double sided tape to keep that from happening. I can still pull them up without leaving any residue, but they won't move if I bump them or when I transport the MFC.

    The short answer is no! I found that it has an amazing low end response. Others could possibly chime in, but it was surprising how much low end it has. Keep in mind, it won't cover a large stage area, but for tight small spots, it holds it's own.
