    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 13.01

    Not disagreeing, but stating how it works for me personally I just don't care. It's musical. I would almost prefer to turn the knob and just hear it and not even see any form of measurement. When it's where it should be, my ears will say "sounds good man". I guess what I'm saying is this: I...

    Will MIDI 2.0 - Require Axe-Fx III redesign soon?

    Curious if the MIDI 2.0 protocol will require a new version of the box, or can a software update, or bolt-in module do the trick if we want to utilize the great new technology coming in the near future?? https://reverb.com/news/what-will-midi-2-dot-0-mean-for-musicians

    Will get an AxeFX if I can achieve this tone. Can the box do this?

    Exactly true. When I wrote "Easily" my comment is aimed at the question of "Can the AXE-FX achieve this tone." The answer is in fact "Easily". I think the AXE-FX might even ask "Is that all you got" The OP's challenge/question was "if the AXE-FX can achieve this tone." not if he can.
  23. kerrlehr

    Will get an AxeFX if I can achieve this tone. Can the box do this?

    How to pan amps hard left and right ?

    There is no "My bad" in experimenting and asking for help. The most fun you can have with this new box is to try, fail, try, fail again, try again and totally succeed. That's how it works sometimes. Other times you can find a killer sound pretty much by accident. Uses you ears more than your...

    How to pan amps hard left and right ?

    This hits the nail squarely on the head This is the way to use and visualize your AXE-FX always. So many see it as a box with secret codes and thousands of things to know and learn. Always try to "Imagine this in real life" try to visualize what you would do with real equipment. Only look at...

    If you go with the H9 model (which I personally find as a brand identity error - but that's just my opinion) I would be curious how FW updates would be executed when almost no two units are the same anymore. Seems like a big complication to the single most awesome feature on our black boxes.

    Makes business sense. However, I don't see how it could "actually" lower the cost as you already have produced the amp models and the effect algos. I suppose that the same applies to the H9, but it is really a nut and shell game at this point. I feel that you keep your brand prestige if you just...

    Ton of that is coming from two non-amp areas. (1) As has been said - It's the pickups and how they are wired. Piezo?? Listen to how different it sounds when he switches the pickup selector at 2:15. (2) It's Tosin man. Those fingers (both hands) are magically talented, dynamic, his varied...

    FW18 Twin Reverb - Albert Collins Style!
