    Bug? Display gone blank

    Hi, As title says, the display in my MFC-101 Mark III is blank. Initially it displayed some random characters but know shows nothing, yet it still back lit. The switches don´t do anything either. I was using it via a CAT5 cable but I tried disconnecting it and powering it with the supplied PSU...

    Baritone Post Rock - Plexi 50W, Brit 800, Zilla and new ML Bass cab pack in Drop A

    TBH, I appreciate when not every PR song sounds like it's the end of the world or something. May I ask you what pu's are those? Stock ones don't work for me and I'm looking into replace them.

    Baritone Post Rock - Plexi 50W, Brit 800, Zilla and new ML Bass cab pack in Drop A

    Definitely sounds like Post Rock to me, maybe not as "epic" as some others, but great song nonetheless. Is that a Baritone Special Jag in your avatar? Did you use it for this track?

    Axe FX II, POD HD 500X, Variax

    I've done exactly what you mention, but it's not a perfect system, mostly because of the palm muting issues in the variax, which made it loose a lot of the flexibility. I removed the guts of a variax guitar and put them in short of a pedal enclousure, which I could control manually or just...

    Axe Edit all of a sudden will not connect

    I´m experiencing the same problem. Last night I updated to 18.12 and worked just fine, now it just doesn´t connect. Update: I uploaded the Firmware again and after selecting the appropriate ports in Axe edit (I also did this before and didn´t work) it works again.

    Omega Massif sludge/doom tones?

    One of the first (and actually one of the few) tone matches I ever did was from the track Arcanum from their EP Geisterstadt, basically because it has kind of an isolated guitar track in the intro. I can't remember what amp I used for the preset but I'm pretty sure it was one of the high...

    High output PU´s and the Axe

    Thanks for the answers. I understand that the AXE offers a few ways to adjust the levels, it´s extremely flexible. My question was more about changing the pick ups and trying weaker ones, as there are always lots of gain available afterwards.

    I know this has been somehow discussed before, but I didn´t find an specific thread about it.

    M13 as midi controller (possibly silly question)

    I used my M13 with an ultra for a while. The main issue is that it's quite limited control wise as you cannot change the number assigned to each preset in it, so if you're only target is to change programs it can be ok, but don't ask much more to it.
