    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.00 Firmware Release

    maybe there was a response or two but it doesn't seem as though anyone has addressed the repeated question here: Are the new cabs that were released for free from OwnHammer/FAS available as a download so that us Mark 1 users can try them out.

    Best All Around IR pack

    Thank you! i actually purchased pack 1 when it first came out and i understand that it was re-released in UtraRes format... so aside from that pack being a freebie - does it in fact lend itself to POP guitars in particular? or does "Pop guitars" not really make any sense without context? thanks!

    New Cab Packs for BASS - Dr. Bonkers Silver & Black Collection

    Thank you for addressing this. I simply wanted someone to play/record and post a bass track thru the Axe FX with just a Bass Amp from the Axe as well as one of these new Bass cabs. No post processing, or crazy compression. just bass amp & cab. Thank you!

    Funny story about how the Axe FX won - again!

    I actually did follow your thread. I get what you are saying. Yes there is no question that with the newer firmware updates, the Axe is a bit more unforgiving when it comes to flubs on the guitar b/c there is so much transparency in this box. Old school modelers that we used back in the day were...

    Funny story about how the Axe FX won - again!

    No disrespect to the client. I was kidding about showing the client that he gets his vocals tuned. Almost every vocalist gets slightly tuned. its no big deal. It is only those annoying "purists" that probably couldn't even tell if they were tuned to begin with that seem to care. Its as if the...

    Funny story about how the Axe FX won - again!

    Funny story about how the Axe FX won - again!

    the trick with auto tune is to place Melodyne in the first slot on your chain, and correct the obvious incorrect notes first. this way Auto Tune (placed after Melodyne in the chain) will correct an almost perfect vocal take. This will eliminate those random weird notes that Auto Tune chooses. I...

    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...

    DAW with best Included Plugins?

    you on a mac or PC? if Mac, i think that Logic comes w the most instruments and synths. If you have Ableton Live, you may want to consider upgrading to their Full Suite. If on PC then maybe just get Pro Tools. it has some really nice synths and VI's.

    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...

    HELP getting Axe Fx II XL and Ableton Suite 8 to recognize each other for recording

    I use Ableton. If you are planning on using the Focusrite as teh interface and simply want to use the Axe as a DI, you have to go from one of the outputs of the Axe into an input on your interface. So for example if you are using Input 1 on the focusrite to bring in the Axe signal, you need to...

    How important is the preset exchange for a new user?

    i find the exchange to be very useful. Most folks are using your standard LP or strat. so it should be at least a close approximation of the sound that the poster got with his/her rig. At the very least its a good starting point to see how patches are crafted. I get great use out of stuff from...
