    Tips for modeling my favorite drives? (SL Drive, Sovereign, Timmy)

    Happy FX8 owner for about 9 months now. When I got the FX8, I thought the trickiest thing would be replacing my beloved dirt pedals, and that has indeed turned out to be the case. Currently I have an Emma Stinkbug, an Xotic SL Drive, a Wampler Sovereign, and a Timmy in MIDI-controlled loops...

    FW 3.00 is a gigantic improvement

    I've loved my FX8 from the moment I got it, but the preset/scene/IA paradigm was a bit kludgy. I'm a heavily scene-dependent player - having become addicted to scenes in the Axe-FX II, I use them far more often than I use IA's or presets. But using the FX8 was a bit challenging with having to...

    FX8 Edit will not run after 1.1 upgrade [SOLVED]

    Just upgraded FX8 Edit to 1.1 and FX8 Firmware to 3.00. The firmware upgrade went fine, but FX8 Edit won't run. It will not open at all - when I click on the icon, the Windows "thinking" wheel churns, but the program does not open and nothing else happens. I'm running Windows 10. The FX8 is...

    Wish Custom MIDI message per Song

    I've been using the custom MIDI message function with Presets and IA's, and it wonderful. It opens up a new realm of functionality with the MFC and Axe-FX. Here's the wish: is it possible to add a custom MIDI message field to a Song, so that the MIDI message is sent to the Axe-FX when the song...

    Is it possible to set tempo on the Axe-FX II via sysex?

    Sorry if this has been asked, but I've searched high and low...found a few things that are close, but not this particular answer. I would like to send a custom sysex message to the Axe-FX that would set the tempo at a certain BPM when I call up a preset. I know the MFC-101 has the ability to...

    MIDI block disables scene Program Changes...is this normal?

    When I insert a MIDI block into a preset, it disables all my scene-based Program Changes. This happens whether the MIDI block is bypassed or active. As soon as I delete the MIDI block, my scene program changes work properly. Is this normal behavior? If so, it's a bummer...it would really be...

    How would you get this tone?

    Follow My Feet by The Unlikely Candidates - I need to cover the slide guitar part that starts at the :07 mark and continues throughout. https://youtu.be/Rvb4lw4a3Y4 Thoughts on how to get that tone with the Axe-FX II? There's a gritty character to the delay that I'm having a tough time...

    I will wash your car for free if you can get me an FX8 by April 9

    From April 9 to May 9, I will be either playing out or rehearsing on an almost-daily basis. It is my fondest, dearest wish to have my FX8 in time for that stretch, and therefore I am willing to wash cars, give haircuts, and perhaps even perform elective surgeries for free in order to grease the...

    How much better are the FX8 / AFX II drives than the Ultra's?

    Longtime Ultra user here. For live use I play a Bogner Shiva with a pedalboard, and will be looking to the FX8 to replace about 75% of what I have on the board. It looks perfect and I'm excited about it. I was curious about how the drive blocks will sound through the Shiva, so I hooked up my...

    What is this effect?

    I know the Axe-FX can cop this, 'cause the Axe can cop anything...but I don't know what the effect is. You can hear it from 2:45 to 2:53 of this clip - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gwgizqwa45E. It's the single note, ascending guitar lead, and the effect is kind of a scratchy, swirling sound...

    How do I do a SLOOOWWW automatic filter sweep?

    I am trying to set up a bandpass filter to sweep slowly across the frequency range, sort of like a flanger with the rate set very low, but with a filter effect instead. I can do it manually by moving a wah slowly through its travel over a period of 5-6 seconds, but I'm looking to automate this...

    How to use the Liquid Foot to automatically set song tempos

    I posted a question on this a couple of days ago and got some valuable help from Jeff in figuring out the solution. Thanks Jeff! He asked me to post it here in case others might find it helpful. For anyone who's interested in using the Liquid Foot / LF Jr. to automatically set song tempos on...

    I just made a discovery (LF Jr. IA Linking content)

    I've been trying to set up one physical IA switch on my LF Jr. (S2) to control the Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, and Pitch shifter on my Axe-FX. I can't assign them all to a group, because there are times that I want more than one of those effects on at a time. So I figgered I'd do it with IA...

    Help requested with pushed / mid-gain tones

    Noob here, all of a month into my Axe-FX odyssey. Overall I'm quite thrilled with my Ultra so far, and I've actually found it relatively easy to get very satisfying high-gain and clean sounds. Where I'm struggling is with the pushed, mid-gain stuff. I'm having a hard time getting a tone with...

    FCB1010 / Ripwerx bugginess

    Hey all...just received my Ultra on Friday and haven't slept much since then. Quite an unbelievable piece of gear, to be sure. I have an old FCB1010 that's been laying around for years, so I decided to control the Ultra with that until I can spring for a Liquid Foot Jr or something better. I...
