    Cab Pan Followed by Delay Question

    I have a cab IR that is panned left. It sounds fine with the delay (after the cab) off. But when I turn the delay on, only the first dry note is panned left and then all delayed notes are center. Is this what is supposed to happen? Why is IR panning only related to the dry signal? Shouldn't...

    Coming soon...

    I've been working on a special preset for weeks. I can't even count how many hours I've put into it. At least 20 and maybe more. I don't believe this preset has ever been posted and I don't see it on Axe Exchange. Many hours invested in a famous song that everyone knows. One of my favorite...

    Wish Suggestion for Axe-Edit III Layout

    It would be great if the tabs and related controls in Axe Edit would match the Axe screen. I use both and it gets confusing as to where the controls are located. There are ten tabs on the Axe but they are not the same as Axe Edit. An example is the Preamp tab on the Axe which has the Fat, Cut...

    Amp Advanced Setting Question

    I'm not sure if this is a minor oversight in the firmware, so I'm asking the question first. When I change the Low Cut Freq under the PREAMP section of the ADVANCED PAGE, it also changes the LOW CUT on the INPUT EQ PAGE. This seems to make sense since the input EQ logically seems linked to the...

    Wish Kay Fuzz Tone Drive Model

    I would greatly appreciate having the Kay Fuzz added to the Axe III. The Axe can do some of this by adjusting the bit reduction and other parameters, but I've never been able to absolutely nail the special nuances and tone of this drive. I have one or two of them and would be happy to lend...

    U2 "Streets" Clip

    Loving the new Axe-Fx III. Going to rebuild all my presets. Here is a clip of Streets so far. Throw out all your old gear folks - this is the real deal! Crunch + mids + chime! Edge's rig is still way too complicated. He just needs a few Axe-Fx IIIs and nothing else, LOL. []SOUNDCLOUD]

    Meter Problem?

    I'm looking at the Meters tab in one of my presets. I'm on firmware 1.12. The green 2R column under USB OUT is stuck at one level over 50%. It doesn't move at all. 1LR and 3LR move when I play guitar. 2L and 4LR do nothing. 2R is stuck. Thoughts?

    Delay Question

    I heard an amazing clip of a delay setting that was done with computer software (S-Gear VST plugin). The delay setting knob screen shot is attached. I'm going to try to get the same effect with the Axe-Fx but am having trouble translating the effect setting description from the VST plugin...

    Delay question

    I have two signal paths and would like one to be delayed from the other, but only the dry signal. In other words I don't want a repeat - just delay the original dry signal so it's offset from the other path. What's the simplest way to do this? I have a feeling this is a dumb question but...

    Qauntum v2.01Beta U2 Clip

    Here is a comparison of my Pride preset to the deleted scene in "It Might Get Loud." Edge first in each part and then my preset. I made a mistake and played one part twice. There is a hollow sound to the IMGL scene because it was recorded in a huge room. My preset has more clarity because it...

    Wish / Suggestion / Fixes

    Is there anyway to match the Axe-Edit tabs with the tabs on the Axe screen? It would make using each easier when transitioning between them. Either have fewer tabs on the Axe or add more on Axe-Edit. For example, it's confusing that the XFormer Match knob is on the Speaker tab in Axe-Edit...

    PWR Amp Tab Question

    I just noticed that my main G1 amp model has "PRES" as the first knob on the PWR tab. But when I start a new preset and load the same amp model with default settings, this same knob is "HI CUT." Does the name of this knob change based on another setting/knob? I had not noticed this before...

    AE 3.3.1 and Bot 2.6.0 Mac Problem

    Line 6 Helix - Question for Cliff

    Cliff, any thoughts about how this "profiling" is described? The tones still sound less "natural" than the Axe-Fx. Line 6 always has this "tinny" or "digital" sound to it. This is an improvement over their previous gear, but still not at the level of the Axe-Fx.

    Exporting Mulitple Presets Quickly with Unlinked Amp Blocks

    This is a question that likely should go under Axe Edit and Bot, but I thought I would post here because it applies to both. I have most presets linked to global blocks. I save the entire blocks and system often. But I also save the individual presets using Axe Edit and the Bot. But I...

    IR Capture Result - Strange One Time Result

    I successfully set up my Matrix power amp with my AC-30 speakers. The IR capture mode works great! But what is strange is the very first capture and save I did sounded fantastic. The captures after that worked, but were much lower in volume. I didn't change anything. It turns out it was the...

    Stock Cab/IR Question - Relationship to Mics

    For the stock cab such as "4x10 Tweed Bass" or "2x12 Blue", are mics associated with these? In other words, some new IRs have a particular mic associated with them (the mic used to create the IR) and the mic name is in the name of the cab. For example, "1x12 Tweed-Verb R121" where the R121 is...

    Bot bug with XL

    Found a minor glitch with the Bot and the XL. There are four banks that get backed up for XL - A, B, C and D. They all worked. However, when you restore the entire D bank for the XL the pop warning before it starts is the system file warning. I didn't know if the problem was that the D bank...

    Axe-Edit Bug regarding XL

    How do I save all presets into separate syx files all at once?

    Is this possible with the Bot? Did I miss something? I used to do this in Axe-Edit but can't find it there either. I want to back up all my presets quickly, but would like each preset to save in a separate .syx files (not by bank but by each individual preset).

    Hi Res Cab Issue

    I have experimented a little with third party IRs that I purchased from the Fractal website (both older and the newer ones that are available for v13).
