    If you like the Rectos...

    Try the FAS Modern III! I can't remember what it's based on, but the damn thing rips. And like the other FAS amps, doesn't need any tweaks from stock (I'm looking at you, Mesa Mark series...) Give it a burl. It's not as hyper-modern as the first Modern, and packs more of a wallop!

    Tuner - frequency offset limit?

    Howdy, I noticed that the tuner has a +/- of 10Hz from standard A440. Is there any reason for this particular limit? The reason I ask is that Dimebag (guitarist of Pantera) tuned to A425, or 15Hz below concert pitch. I'm aware I can achieve the same tuning using the whole F1/F2...

    Simulating pickups with EQ...

    Howdy, I've recently been looking into Fishman Fluence pickups and liking the idea. But in their deeper promo material I spied a graphic they made from their results testing out pickups. The graphic makes sense to me (resonant peaks, roll-off, etc) in broad terms, but not really in specifics -...

    Does Pitch block latency vary based on interval?

    Howdy, I need to play a song which involves riffs around A1 (55Hz). Should I play it on the E string and pitch down seven semitones, or play it on the A and pitch down one octave? It seems intuitive to me that pitch shifting an octave would be lowest latency, as the maths would be simplest -...

    Speaker Time Constant...

    As introduced in Quantum 9. What does it do, exactly? If you had to summarise its effects with words? Why would you turn it to 20ms, or 500ms?

    Has Cliff made his profile private?

    As above, really... I often log on and check Cliff's latest posts, because they often contain really useful nuggets of information, settings he suggests, etc - but as of this morning, it says "this member limits who may view their full profile." What gives?

    Splitting a signal into channels??

    Hi all, Here's an idea I've had kicking around in the back of my head for a while. I'm a very basic user of the Axe... in case that doesn't become immediately clear. I've always liked the idea of having a stereo signal live, but in a basic "Haas effect" / doubling sense. I would like to have...

    Axe-FX II Owners' Manual...

    I noticed that in February the manual was updated to a "Preliminary version for Quantum 7". Before I go and print out 200 pages of nerdy goodness, how long does Fractal (or the moderators who might know) think it will be before a full/permanent edition is put out?

    Speaker Drive vs Motor Drive...

    Two quick questions here. 1) Why is Speaker Drive in the Amp parameters, while Motor Drive is in the Cab parameters? Both pertain to speaker modeling as far as I can see - "speaker overdrive" for Speaker Drive, and "effect of high power levels on the tone of the speaker" for Motor Drive. 2)...

    Axe as audio interface... Flexible sample rate?

    Would it be possible for the sample rate that the Axe puts out (48kHz) to be alterable by the user? I am buying an audio interface for recording soon, and would like to run my projects at 96kHz - but dislike the idea of having to run an analog out to this interface, to then convert the signal...

    Tube bias...

    Long story short, I read an article about some amp tricks employed by a certain scrappy young guitarist to get his Super Lead to have the gain and tone he needed... One such seeing was "diming the internal bias setting". What seeing in the Axe would replicate turning up to full the bias knob on...

    On new firmware releases...

    Whenever there's a firmware drop which requires (or is accompanied by) an update to Axe-Edit, Fractal Bot, etc - could that be included on the new firmware release post? Or at least mentioned? I can't count the times a new parameter has been introduced and I've lost a few more hairs trying to...

    Finally played the IIC++ on the weekend...

    And bloody loved it. The way the amp compresses on power chords but breathes otherwise is amazing. I ran it with the Input Drive and Overdrive on around 8, with the Tubescreamer on zero drive, Level on 8 in the front. But I've one qualm... With that set up, it felt plenty gain-y while riffing...

    So, the UK is leaving the EU... What does this mean for Fractal?

    As the thread-head says, basically. The UK is now definitely leaving the EU. What do you think this means for prospective buyers from the UK? And more generally, what do you think of the move? I definitely would've voted Leave so I'm personally happy; the less global federalism and unelected...

    A question for Cliff... what makes the "fuller" amps sound... fuller?

    I was over in the Recordings section, and stumbled across this great video by ProgressiveRocco: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0s3y6xkyPc In it he demos four models - the Orange OD1 JVM, the 5153 Red, the PVH 6160, and the classic HBE. But I noticed that the first and fourth amps sound...

    A question for IR-capturers...

    I haven't got the space or equipment to do IR captures myself, but I've been thinking lately... since phase cancellation with a single mic occurs due to floor reflections (and the like), couldn't you set up a cab in a large room, lift it off the floor (say, at the edge of a table or chair or...

    Your go-to "Dialing in" tips

    So as you've no doubt seen lately, there's lots of threads popping up with people asking how to dial-in specific tones. I've noticed that at least some of these people have not had experience with the real amps, and I'm the same... I hadn't played tube amps before the Axe-Fx 2. As such, I've...

    Boost vs Input Trim vs Level boosting...?

    Hi all, this might be a ramble, so skip to the last paragraph for a tl;dr if you'd like! I've been REALLY enjoying hitting the front end of amps hard lately, either with the V19 Drive block (which is like melted butter but better!), or an EQ set up to cut lows and high highs, and then boosted...

    Change default settings?

    Pretty simple question here. Is there a way that we could change what a setting defaults to? For instance, I always change an amp to Ideal/Smooth straight away, bring the Cab hi-cut and lo-cut to a certain level, etc etc. It would be a great help if I could somehow get them to...

    Mix/jam-ready IRs in packs, or for sale?

    Hi all, I'm interested in the various cab packs for sale, but I'm not interested in getting deep into IRs and mixing them myself, using Cab Lab etc. I just don't have the time for that sort of thing. I like the stock cabs on offer because they are sort of load-and-play. I'm very...

    Dave Mustaine plays Fractal... it's even on the Megadeth site!

    Dave Mustaine | Megadeth.com As many here will know, Dave is quite the clown... but he is a pretty ace guitarist. Glad to see it's in the #1 amp spot on his gear list, too.

    User renaming?

    As above, and I'm sure I know the answer, but... Is there any way that users could rename the amp models? I don't have much time to jam, and I'm forever forgetting which amp is which... and Marshall models aren't all in one section.

    Is this a possibility? Has it been thought of before?

    Aloha all, I was thinking about the logistics of sending amps to Cliff, and the possible repercussions, and it led me to thinking: What about crowdfunding? If there's an amp - say like the AFD100 recently - that everyone wants in the unit, why don't we all chip in? It could be through a...

    Axe-FX frying PC monitors??

    Hi all, strange question... I don't think this is a "bug" or anything like that so I posted here... Long story short, I had a great monitor (screen) for four years, and recently chucked my AF2 on my PC desk, monitor right behind it. One day it made a "cracking" sound, and died. "No biggy", I...

    Renaming Amps/Cabs/whathaveyou...?

    Hi folks, first thread! So, I got my AF2 three months ago and I'm loving the paint off it. It's incredible, and by far the best single musical purchase I've made. I've made up a list of amps I would likely enjoy and copied the names of their models with the Wiki for quick reference, but I'm...
