    Looper in the Axe FXIII

    You can always turn to drooling over Ed Sheeran's looping setup 'Chewie Monsta' (version 2 pictured) while you are at it. Custom built floor unit running Mobius hosted by Ableton. I think I read somewhere it has 8 separate I/O so each can be EQ'd at the desk.

    Bass Tones dissapearing in a live mix

    I hear ya man. I was having the exact same issues earlier this year after buying a matrix gt1000fx (so not even the 1600). Long story short, I heard drastic improvements when I started A/Bing different Pre amps. First tried a Tone Hammer and MXR bass DI (pedals) straight into the Matrix to...

    Very Frustrated With AXE FX II XL+

    Stop tweaking, its not you its the nature of the AxeFx2. As said already, power amp and Cab is the solution you are looking for. Good news for you is that you don't need to buy any more gear. Set your Axe output to 9 o'clock, plug the Matrix into your Marshall cab, bring up a new preset with...

    Tired of this bass flubbyness...

    With me just listening to your recording and not reading any other info, it just sounds to me like the output signal is too hot. Not sure how you are monitoring/recording this but that's my take. Where is your output 1 set at?

    Midi footswitch recommendation for Axe-Fx II?

    Its maybe a little bigger than you wan but the the KM Softstep 2 is my suggestion. You will need an accessory to allow it to connect via MIDI cable but its very portable. I keep mine above the Axe in a 2u rack when transporting! Pic of Softstep 1 and MFC just to show dimensions...

    Can't get a decent sound with Axe FX II, Matrix and 1x12 EVM12L....

    Having just gone through the similar pains when I got my Gt1000fx the past 2 months I totally understand some of the criticism. I was initially somewhat disappointed. The thing that made a night and day difference was using a High Cut and low Cut, either in the amp block or via a PEQ block...

    Setup suggestions for live gigs with Axe fx II :)

    Generally a guitar 'amp head' refers to a pre-amp and a power amp together. Which sounds like what you are saying you currently use (solid state amp)? In this case the Axe-fx is the pre-amp, so if you want to then use a traditional passive guitar cabinet (unpowered) then you will need to...

    Removing rack ears

    Thanks for all the help on this, was worth me asking! I have some fly gigs coming up and I found a carry-on case that will fit the unit at like a 30 degree angle. Without the Rack ears it will make the fit much easier. Interesting to hear that the handles can be removed as well, I may avoid...

    Removing rack ears

    This may be just me overthinking, but is it ok to remove the rack ears on the AxeFx? I was a bit hesitant as it looked like it may be connected to something else on the inside. Any info would be appreciated!

    Wired in ear monitoring, anyone?

    Matrix GT1000FX for bass?

    Hi Selta, thanks for the help on this. Just out of interest how do you generally run your gear, FRFR or Power amp to cab? Good suggestion, I might try a factory reset in a day or two as you have suggested if things don't change.

    Matrix GT1000FX for bass?

    Just before I reply to the suggestions, I will say that I have had some success with the Depth switch. Default this was on 0, putting it on about 4-5 has definitely improved things quite a bit. But I m still left wanting more, and still not satisfied with an A/B with my Orange terror amp...

    Matrix GT1000FX for bass?

    Hi Guys, Good timing for me to see and join this thread. I received my GT1000fx last night, spent most of the evening trying it out with my Axefx2. I used my Fender Jazz 5 into a Bergantino 212 HDN series cab. After about 3 hours of experimenting I will say that I am much happier with the...

    Anyone not a fan of Quantum 6?

    Definitely enjoying Q6, especially the ability to go between versions and comparing. Just a quick confirmation, when we are suggested to reset the amp block am I right to assume that means just change the amp block to something else and then change back again? Or do I need to do something...

    Is the Axe-Fx II XL+ 100% of the way there tonally?

    Amp sound through Monitors/ IEM's , front of house live - Axefx2 (Quantum) wins for me. I prefer the tone and its more useful to me. Gone are the years of hearing my tube amp behind me, mostly at tilted ground level and assuming it sounds as good out front and/or in other band members...

    Or you can go a wired system, couple of providers make some clever one lead system. Wired is always going to be > than wireless, as there will be loss through audio companding etc. Jump Audio IXM system and Posse Audio system both make wired systems, clever stuff.

    Enough room for the Axe FX...?

    I had the same issue finding something that would get on carry-on, I have read here of peoples success with variety of rack bags. I had great success with a standard hard-case carry-on suitcase. Put the Axe in on an angle so it would fit, used combo couple of bits of polystyrene and bubble...

    Anyone wish for a better looper?

    Let me just wipe the drool from my mouth! I discovered Mobius while looking for looping options with the Afx, amazing program! It even runs very well using the fractal as a sound output. The learning curve has been insane though.

    What made you decide to go Axe FX?

    Likewise, but I actually always struggled with tube amps live. Especially with stage volume constraints, I d get dirty or clean I d like but then hate the vice versa due to the room etc. I tweak my AXE in rehearsal, then refine at a gig with a laptop. Then I save a few versions of same preset...

    Why can't 'amp in the room' feel be modelled?

    These days for FR, the IR is everything to me. Surprisingly some of my favorite IR's have been the user uploaded ones on Axe-Change. I succinct way to say all of this, we don't hear with our ears we hear with our brains.

    Agreed with Chris its not needed this way to play the tune. But I believe this is possible using modifiers, in particular the filter section? Cooper had a section on it in his video.
