    Firmware 10 lead noodling with Marco Sfogli preset-feels and sounds great!

    Hey all, just wanted to get back into backing track practicing, and i accidentally loaded A preset called Dreamy Lead from an earlier firmware, now uses IIC+ bright. Guess what? Sounds awesome! Playing on the Track wasn't rehearsed or planned, and I played only through the first two minutes, but...

    Mesa Mark-based Amp models

    The Studio lead preset is amazing, and I actually like it even more with the petrucci cab ir and 57 mic ON Top of the ir. Such a smooth "commercial" sound.

    Axe Fx II and Peavey IPR 3000 Cab setup

    Hi, just wanted to share a few points about this combo. I picked up the IPR 3000 for smaller gigs and as backup to my main PA. Since I had it I figure why not try it with my Axe. I have gigged it twice with my Axe and a 1x12 cab with a Veteran WGS speaker, and in both cases it ROCKED. I know the...

    USA PRE YELLOW AND GREEN- Cliff, you nailed it!

    USA PRE YELLOW AND GREEN- Cliff, you nailed it!

    Glad there's so much love here for the Triaxis leads. I have a theory on why this preamp and amp models sound so great. The Triaxis was really designed to go direct as well and to be played at any volume. That means more compression, but also that the unit is more flexible in all different...

    Patches from a certain muscly, bearded guitar player

    USA PRE YELLOW AND GREEN- Cliff, you nailed it!

    As an update, I gigged last night (and led the band and ran my Presonus board) straight from updating to Fw10 and replacing my amps with the usa pre green.

    Using Axe FX II Live

    I just want to add to this thread as cliff said previously, If you're looking for an AMP sound you gotta use a Guitar cab, as room reflections and directionality of the speaker play a huge role.

    Thanks so much! I was running a FRFR with this patch but I used the fx loop do I could alter eq on my monitor with output2. The delay works great for my recording purposes! I would change to a smaller one live and I'll try the recto cab. Thanks and I'll get back to u!

    Thanks Ron, I will try those routes. Theres nothing so unique about what it do, i play funk, and loud rock in a loud club date band (think 80s and early 90s type stuff) and do some shredding.

    Please take my studio lead patch and translate it for live use!! (Calling Scott)

    Tinny, doesn't feel full sounding, doesn't give with the band at full volume like my amps, etc. I have boosted mids and have tried other things in the past... The louder the band gets the worse my studio patches sound etc. Gain is fine I trim down the gain at live volume. Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply, simeon, but when people post problems about their sounds on the site, I have seen Scott and others ask to send a preset to try and examine what the story is, and this is just about translating live, If it sounds great to them it will probably work for me so i'd love someone...

    9.01 can only be described as...

    FAT. Thick, rich, FAT tone that's not healthy for me in this busy season. Also, modeling gets more and more accurate which means my playing is exposed more and more every update :) GREAT STUFF. Put on the Euro Red patch with a drop more delay and played for a while in total ecstasy. Thanks...
  44. A

    Oh boy...having issues...

    In the global section of output 2 (to your qsc), make te eq into a frown. Boost 800 and everything around it like a frown. Helps a lot. Leave output 1 alone for the pa. Done.

    What speaker sim to use for all my patches?

    I can't vouch for the ownhammer set, but someone on the Forum suggested stock cab 44 (own hammer Mesa 4x12) and they made me very happy for a long time with all my high gain sounds. Use a darker mic to reflect the eminence's bigger lows (royer 121 maybe).

    Anyone using a Tech 21 Power Engine 60?

    To my ears its the most "alive" lead sound I've had. Its funny, because right when I bought the AXE II I was contemplating selling it off and purchasing a Bogner 20th Shiva. I even spoke to Scott Peterson about it at the time. This model is just so rich and responsive to dynamics. The clean is...

    I don't know why , but I can get beautiful tone at home, but even with all the discussed mid-boosts, going FRFR, direct to pa, or power amp with cabs, I'm just not there if there's any gain involved.

    How to setup Axe Fx II

    Hey Morty welcome! I side with the minority here in saying use a power amp and guitar cab. Going FRFR made me go out of my mind at the beginning. If you can get a solid state poweramp (doesnt need to be so expensive, just loud) and run into your existing cabs you'll feel a lot of joy a lot...

    Guthrie Govan at Tupelo Music Hall

    I saw him last year at a clinic in Queens. It was a small intimate thing for Suhr, and I was 15 feet away, and my brain just couldn't understand how his hands could make those sounds out of a slab of wood. And he barely uses any gain! The feel is just as top shelf as his pyro-technics. Not fair.
