    Cannot configure 2 In and 2 Out Simultaneously

    AES is carrying a single stereo pair to you interface. if you want to send both signal chains to AES you need to combine them into either output 1 or 2 and then send that output block to AES.

    Help Needed Recording from USB Axe FX III USB Out to QuickTime on a MacBook`

    this doesn’t change the fact that quicktime doen’t select between inputs and just mixes them together. people typically record video and audio with separate apps or even separate hardware, use a DAW app to mix the audio, and then use a video editing app to integrate the two. the point of the...

    Axe-Fx 3 to iMovie problem

    i think it’s common for people to record audio and video in 2 different applications, so they can control the mix of the audio they want, and then add the audio to the video later (that’s why people clap at the beginning of you tube videos - it helps them sync the audio and video)

    wow, i’m impressed by your maturity level. do you win a lot of arguments this way? according to your theory no unit would ever be able to both send and receive audio over spdif/AES.

    Can i use Spdif for fxloop?

    clock source and audio source are two independent things. the axefx does not have to be the source of the clock signal to send audio.

    Input 3 headroom and LB-2 DI Level

    just curious. seems like a lot of effort to insert a new, unproven but of modeling gear into the loop of one of the top amp modelers on the planet. is there something that the black spirit does that you can’t get from the axefx 3?
  49. flying_walrus

    Input 3 headroom and LB-2 DI Level

    tube amps and solid state amps are completely different beasts. more importantly, 30 seconds of googling leads me to the realization that the black spirit is a modeling amplifier. why are you looking to use a modeling amp with the axefx?

    Input 3 headroom and LB-2 DI Level

    not sure what the purpose of a load box on a solid state power amp would be? solid state amps tend to get all their tone from the preamp, so running rom the preamp out (or effects loop send) should get you all the tone in the amp without the hassle of amplifying it and running it through a load box

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 12.08 Public Beta
