    Any ideas?

    OK. It's working now. Apparently, a certain new pedal on my pedal board does not play well with others. The pedal was working well but then changed overnight with nothing changing on my part. The pedal is now gone. I have had problems with this brand before. Seems I would learn? Thanks...

    Any ideas?

    I have an XL+ run through two Atomic CLRs. It has never left my house. This morning I plugged into it and all the highs were gone. So, I turned it off and then back on. Now no sound whatsoever. It does make a thump when you change channels. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks for your help.

    Callibrating Expression Pedals?

    I went to the I/O knob and found External Controller 16 and 17 but I couldn't find any way to set a percentage? Earlier the output made a distorted rumble and volume went to zero where it now remains?

    Callibrating Expression Pedals?

    Everything is backed up. I just tried running it through the laptop and not the MFC. It was working fine and then started distorting and then no sound. I turned it (the XL+) on and off several times and now I have no output.

    Callibrating Expression Pedals?

    Thanks for the replies. I got the preset problem figured out and fixed. I was panicked for a minute there. Doesn't fix my expression pedal 2 problem though. Maybe I should just keep trying like I did with pedal 1 and it will eventually work?

    Callibrating Expression Pedals?

    I am using two AMT mini expression pedals. They were working fine one day and then they weren't. After changing the cable I kept trying over and over to calibrate pedal 1. Then out of the blue it calibrated after about 20 tries. However, no luck with pedal two. I played the XL+ using the...

    Callibrating Expression Pedals?

    Tried a brand new TRS cable still in the package. No change. I tried changing to Pedal 3. Same problem. When you press enter and move the pedal from toe to heel it changes the min from 000 to 127 and you can't change it back. The max also reads 127.

    Strange problem with MFC-101 and XL+

    OK, I worked all day on this, swapping around cables etc. Turns out that it is not the XLR cable or the PedalSnake. For years I have played the FX II and the XL+ using AX Edit on my laptop since I am constantly tweaking and it is easier to tweak on AXE Edit than the front panel. I just...

    Strange problem with MFC-101 and XL+

    I am running a PedalSnake between the MFC-101 and the XL+. The PedalSnake is MIDI but I use connectors that convert it to XLR and use Faslink. Sounds great. I decided to try running an XLR cable using Faslink rather than the PedalSnake because the Pedalsnake is more bulky with four cables...

    Will this hurt my XL+?

    If I gig with my XL+ sitting on top of two Atomic CLRs can the vibration of the CLRs hurt the XL+ (e.g. shake a component loose)?
  18. T

    I'm asking for help

    I was never satisfied with the way my XL+ sounded until I got FRFR speakers. I started with the Atomic ones that had tubes and later changed to the Atomic CLRs. Now it sounds great. Try someones FRFR speakers before you buy and see how it sounds then.

    Can't Eliminate the Buzz

    It only buzzes when you strike the strings. The fatter the string the louder the buzz. No buzz when I am not playing. It almost sounds like a sizzle. I tried it with an Atomic CLR and an Atomic Reactor. It's too loud to ignore. Thanks for any ideas you may have.

    Question about XL+ and Q8

    I bought a "blemished" XL+ that of course has Q8. I did this as an update from my Mark II. I don't like Q8 so I installed Q5.0 because I already have a bunch of presets in Q5 that I really like. Now all the preset banks are empty! Does this mean I have no choice but to use Q8 on the XL+?

    OK, I've tried loading Quantum 3.3 multiple times and then going back to 2.4. No doubt about it, with 2.4 my sound is more bright and crisp. It's a shame cause it keeps me from using Moke's presets which are Q3.2.

    Firmware sound

    I have had similar problems twice. Updating from FW17 to 18 changed everything and I had to go back to FW17. Quantum 1.0 fixed it and sounded great through Q2.4. When I updated to Q3 it sounded as if I had a blanket over my speakers. Had to go back to 2.4 to get a good sound. Weird?

    One side died? Getting output from only one side.

    I want it to be stereo with one channel to the left and one to the right. It was doing that but suddenly stopped. Now no sound is coming from the left output jack only the right. I'm not much of a tweaker so I'm not very good at explaining the problem.

    One side died? Getting output from only one side.

    So, for the Output Levels knobs on the front panel, Output Level 2 controls only the FX send and not Output Level 1 controlling volume to left side and Output Level 2 controlling volume to the right side? Output Level 1 knob should control volume to both Atomic Reactors?

    Anybody out there using an FXII with a Bose L1?

    OK, I finally got this figured out. I read on a Eleven Rack forum that running straight into the base of the Bose L1, not running through the tone match mixer is an FRFR amp. I tried this and it works great. Gives me the exact sound I get from an Atomic Reactor cab.
