    FW10 has really F-d UP my Mesa Patches :( ... lot's of work or back to V6???

    I think people should get off the OP back. It seems that nobody can say anything negative about the axe fx without a whole buch of people getting stuck into them. Who cares what mark day or Scott Peterson do they are not the be all and end all. It's like this forum is a cult where everyone...

    Lots of feedback, need help!

    I had a similar problem, even with a noise gate their was still the squeal and feedback. Turned out I had the levels to high in the axe fx. Fixed the problem. Oh yeah I was using high gain amp with a drive Block in front for metal.

    4CM Level Difficulties

    Sorry, I wasn't having a go and I appreciate your help. What I meant was that it seems that most people are using their axe fx direct. It just seems to me that it is not as common therefore doesn't attract as much attention.

    AXE doing funny things?

    Cheers mate, it's fw 10 and I'm I'm listening through krk 6 and I have noticed it on the 5153. I don't know how to pot a clip. It is not a tone thing it basically takes over the whole sound, sounds like a bass with full distortion with all 4 strings being strummed. Seems like a bug, might have...

    Info about Axe FX setup

    Hi and welcome. If you are going to play mainly at home all you really need is a computer studio monitors as you can connect via USB. You use the power amp and speaker simulation in the axe fx. I would suggest downloading the manual as it lays out very well what the axe does and how you can...

    4cm help please

    Thanks man, that's weird I just responded to your post!
  12. M

    Recording, tracking questions, IR questions, etc.

    I find it best to use a slightly different guitar sound for each take. I usually do 1 each side and one with less gain in the middle to fatten it up. Using slightly less gain and doing more tracks can produce some big sounds. For quad tracking you can try panning 2 left and right and another 2...

    How much improvement is 10 for you?

    I found that using it with a tube power amp and cab it was just like playing a real amp I was blown away. Also using it direct I noticed a big difference, just more real.

    Headphones only working on left side

    Thanks guys, yeah it's not stereo and it doesn't sound right I just mentioned and I knew it wasn't right still. I'm sorry but what do you mean a jumper cable? Do you mean the 1/4 inch adaptor. Thanks for all your input.

    Is anyone using Axe 2 usb with Logic?

    Is possible that there is something wrong with the output 1 on my axe fx because I'm getting no sound when I plug my moniter into them only on output 2?? I really need help.
  35. M

    Is anyone using Axe 2 usb with Logic?

    OK I so now have sound coming through but it is not showing up in the channel strip.
  36. M

    Is anyone using Axe 2 usb with Logic?

    Thanks for the reply. I read in the manual and saw a god on you tube that if you put an fx loop at the end of the preset and empty all the blocks to the output this stops any signal coming through when the tracks not armed. Cheers
  37. M

    Is anyone using Axe 2 usb with Logic?

    I'm new to this, how do i do that and do you think that could be causing the problem? I have reset everything and now I'm getting guitar sound but it is on even when the track is not armed and I have done the fx loop thing but still there is sound.

    Axe 2 in 4cm boosting the front of a tube amp????

    Yeah cool I have been researching the 4 c m why I have been waiting for my mesa mark 4 to arrive ( just arrived ) can't wait to try it out! I was just wondering if putting a clean boost from the axe would work as good as an actual pedal.
  52. M

    Why do patches I download sound like crap?

    Yeah you are definitely right there but I have to turn the output down so far that when I record I can't hear it. Even the patches in the axe itself are way hot. I have been doing what someone suggested and just turning the master output down.

    Axe 2 in 4cm boosting the front of a tube amp????

    Has anyone tried this or can it even be done with good results?
  55. M

    Why do patches I download sound like crap?

    Yeah I don't download patches and try and run them with a real power amp and cab, I'm only talking about with cab sims. I love the tone I get through the power amp and cab (real). What I have noticed is I get a great tone when I go the other way like adding a cab to my live sound set up.
  56. M

    Why do patches I download sound like crap?

    Thanks for all the advice. Like I said in the op I understand that there are heaps of factors that go into tone I just thought that considering that every downloaded preset was way to hot that I may be doing something wrong. Cheers
  57. M

    Why do patches I download sound like crap?

    Yeah without anything plugged in and turned right down on the front. Cheers mate

  61. M

    Why do patches I download sound like crap?

    Any ideas will be welcomed. When I download patches they are always way to hot with heaps of clipping and they just dont sound anything like the recordings I hear. Now I understand that there will be differences in guitars and pups but yeah not sure whats going on. I'm thinking it must be a...
