    Best way to go about setting this up...

    Hey there! For a few reasons i wanted to start experimenting with using 2 amp sims and 2 different cabs in one preset. Mostly for creative sound design options as well as for my general Axe knowledge.I am looking for a super vintage Plexi'ish tone that is super wide and nice and growly. I find...

    New Update for Axe Edit

    I got the pop up the other day for the latest update on Axe Edit. Typically this happens roughly around the same time as a new firmware is released. Any info on this? or was this just a bug fix or something?

    DI recording thru the Axe

    Hey y'all - have a question. I am tracking guitars tonight for a very large project and i wanted to make sure that i do this the best way. I don't want to paint the client into a corner so i don't want to only record the Axe signal but also want to record dry tracks so that i can re-amp it later...

    Looking for that Jimmy Page tone

    Hey y'all! So I just finished tracking drums for this really awesome classic rock band. They really nail that Zeppelin sound live. However due to the fact that I am trying to track all the guitars at home and not at the studio, i want to use only the Axe FX. The guitarist brought my attention to...

    Any discussion around here regarding new factory presets for the non beta release of Quantum 2? Would love to see what FAS comes up with now that they have the magic sauce all up in the black box. ;)

    Funny story about how the Axe FX won - again!

    I had a client over at the studio last night. He is a heavy gigging musician who ONLY uses tube amps and vintage guitars from pawn shops. I suppose you can say that he fancies himself a purist. We started off last nights session with me micing up his Marshall amp with an SM57 and Beyerdynamic...

    Axe FX quality with regards to AES vs. Analog input

    I have been using the AES output on my Axe ever since i owned my unit (2012). I had a quick question regarding this. When you connect the Axe via AES it is (to my understanding) a digital connection that retains the purist sound as intended by Cliff when he created the Axe FX. Here is the...

    The Amp Factory Cabinet IR question

    Hey all - quick question (probably a dumb one but....). I have been tossing around the idea of picking up one of their cab packs called "The Cab Legends". I found something quite confusing that i have not seen before. If you click the link...

    I finally got to see the Helix in action at AES

    So i was at the AES (Audio Engineering Society) convention at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan this past weekend. Line 6 had a booth setup with the Helix and a Line 6 FRFR speaker. I was definitely taken by the appearance of the unit. It really looks nice! That however is where the good part...

    What pickups work best with Les Paul and Axe FXII?

    Instead of searching online and reading thru all the different sites dedicated to les paul humbuckers, I wanted to ask my fellow Axe'ers what you are using. I have a Strat so i have those clean like tones spoken for. I have a hot rodded Ibanez so i have my super high gain covered as well. The...

    New Factory Presets For Quantum 1

    Was wondering if the FAS team was planning on creating new factory presets for this new firmware. Would also be nice to see the new presets taking advantage of the new De-Phase feature. :encouragement:

    question re: Fender Deluxe 58 Cap/Cone

    Shout out to Fremen

    I just updated to Fremen's FW 19 presets. WOW!! This guys knows how to get all the goodness out of the AXE. I have been using his presets since FW 18 and I am one super happy camper. He leaves a bunch of empty presets so that we can create our own. He also provides really awesome unique IR's...

    New Keith Urban Amp

    I swapped my favorite cleanish preset with the Keith Urban amp to see if i would also fall in love with it. To be quite honest with you i didn't find that amp to be anything special. Now i am NOT saying that this amp inst a gem. i just tweaked for a few minutes but no magic. Can someone post...

    A few months ago i sent my Axe II in for a service b/c there was this really nasty hissing buzzing noise when using the front input. Fractal got back to me once they received the unit and said there was NO buzz. unbeknownst to me though, they were testing for noise using only the rear input...

    Tucana 3 G3'd

    Anyone know if this model will be G3'd for the upcoming FW release? I know that one of the forum members loaned Cliff the Carol Ann amps... Were they re-loaned to Cliff so he could work his magic on this again? just wondering b/c i love this model and would love to hear an improvement to an...

    USA IIC+

    question about this model. I read all the hubbub about JP loaning this amp to Cliff and I said to myself damn this must be a sweet amp. I have never tried the model on the Axe so i was really curious to try it out. I paired it with a few different cabs - namely the CK pack 7 & 8. With the gain...

    Using EAS/EBU instead of Analog

    I noticed that when I moved from the Analog port to AES i no longer have gain control from Out 1 & Out 2. they no longer effect my gain structure. Any reason for that? is it set to unity? just wanted to make sure i wasn't doing something incorrectly. Thanks!

    Placebo??....I think not!

    I have an artist that is in middle of recording his first album at my studio. We are using just the Axe II for all electric guitars. He has been extremely satisfied to date with the tones I created for him. last week I loaded up FW 18 and was really blown away. mostly by the feel of the amps...

    Is this normal behavior for the Axe FX II?

    Hey for the last year or so I have been noticing that there is this buzzing noise coming from my patches. even on a slightly overdriven clean sound i am getting this buzz. it kinda sounds the way a real amp does when you get too close. Did Cliff mimic this into the amps? high gain amps...

    Axe FX 2 into Universal Audio LA610

    Has anyone tried routing the axe thru the LA610? It works great for most things- I've done it a few times but it seems to take away some if the dynamics- especially after fw11b. Any thoughts or perhaps some good settings on the LA610 that would make this a good combo? Thanks

    David Gilmour sound on sound effect

    Hey fellow fractal junkies ;) Was wondering if anyone has a method of achieving the sound that David Gilmour gets on his acoustic tour. Basically he would play a chord and then step on a pedal and that chord would ring out while at the same time allowing him to play over that chord. It's gotta...
