    Doing shows with the FM3, very specific question

    I've seen a few guitar players on stage with an angled cover over the top of their pedalboard and sides.

    Robert Fripp (King Crimson) now using Axe-Fx!

    Sorry to revive the thread but I was watching a video of Indiscipline recorded in Mexico in 2017 and it looks like Fripp has 2 AxeFx units on top of his rig.

    FM3 Now Shipping

    I received my FM3 Wait List confirmation from Fractal on April 23 @ 10:46 PM and I've yet to get my invite. I thought I registered pretty early too but I guess there were a LOT of people ahead of me.

    Journey's "Who's Crying Now" using Mark Day's Journey preset Axe-Fx 3

    Sounds nice, great job. It was one of Mark's Ain't Talkin Bout Love videos that helped push me over the top to get a V1 Axe Fx Ultra. I wonder how many units have been sold just because of Mark's videos? I'd like to see someone post a poll for that.

    Iron Maiden Guitar Cover

    I got into Iron Maiden right after Number of the Beast came out, then Piece of Mind and Powerslave came out the next two years. That was an amazing run of great music! I bought Somewhere in Time when it came out but I didn't like it as much as the previous three albums.

    Switching over to an AX8

    Now that Fractal has discontinued the MFC-101, just as I was considering retiring my Ground Control Pro for an MFC I was thinking about the possibility of just going all out with the AX8 thinking that in some ways it's the best of both worlds, top class modeling with the foot switches built...

    MFC 101: will it be discontinued AND buying used vs new/direct?

    I also noticed a bunch of used controllers on eBay that are going for well above the cost of a new unit direct from Fractal. Most of the high priced controllers appear to be from sellers in Japan. I also live in Canada and I'm thinking about getting and MFC 101 in the next few months and the...

    There are plenty of great examples in this forum to give you an idea as to how it sounds. If in doubt, you can buy one and simply return it if it doesn't live up to your expectations.

    First of all, I was only in NH for a few days so wasn't REALLY being serious. But, Fractal employees DO read the forums... You clearly don't remember when the AxeFX II was released, line breaking was allowed if you paid the full price and there were a LOT of people on the wait list that were...

    Yngwie Malmsteen Plexi [w/ patch]

    That sounds nice and the playing isn't bad either ;) Anyway would could give us some screenshots of the amp settings for those of us that don't have an XL? Also, isn't there a way now to export the patch settings into a text file?

    Cathode Squish

    I'm asking because I'm not a big fan of rectifier sag. I'll have to play with a few presets and see how I like it. I really appreciate Cliff and the guys at Fractal taking the time to explain how some of the more obscure parameters work!
  54. cob666

    Cathode Squish

    I am by no means an expert on the inner workings of a guitar amplifier so excuse the naivety of the following question: Can you explain how this differs from the sag and bloom produced by a tube rectifier?
  55. cob666

    **Help Needed** pulled the cord out of the plug--what goes where?

    The screws should be two different colors, one silver and one brass. The white wire goes on the silver one and the black on the brass. As unix-guy pointed out it really shouldn't make a difference but swapping the wires will reverse the phase (polarity) of the power which could introduce some...
  56. cob666

    FRFR sounds terrible to my ears compared to poweramp/cab. What am I doing wrong?

    Do you have power amp modeling turned off in the global settings to play through your amp? If you don't turn this back on when playing through FRFR it will not sound like how you described.
  57. cob666

    Axe changing preset Values on its own???

    Have you tried running through the songs without using the RJM? It sounds like the Axe is getting sent MIDI signals and if the only device you have hooked up is the Mastermind then that should be where you start diagnostics.

    Additional Out To A Half Stack Amp?

    Tell him the truth - This is far too complex of a problem to solve in one day. You could ask the FOH for a guitar only feed from the board and plug THAT into the Marshall FX return. Tell the sound guy he can have total control over the amp volume, might score you a few points.

    Steve Vai - Big Trouble - Tab and Preset

    Thanks for the screen shots but I have a couple of questions. Can you provide the settings for the delay and reverb? Also, where did you get the cab. Is it from one of the cab pacs? If not then what would a nice equivalent be?
  72. cob666

    Sound of Silence on Stick

    That's very interesting the way you have the reverb set up. I would have thought there was a synth pad going on if you hadn't said it was done using reverb. I'm going to try that on some of my more 'airy' patches.

    How to Make Axe Edit larger on screen??

    Short term work-around: Just change your screen resolution to something closer to the full size of Axe-Edit and it will be full screen (or close enough). Of course, it might not look GREAT depending on the native resolution of your monitor.
