    When setting globally "Cabinet Modelling" OFF, is the CAB block HI-LO Cut still active?

    At home I play with studio monitors, and at the rehearsal room with a Egnater Tourmaster 4100 amp (connected to the Return of the FX loop) and a Egnater 412A 4x12 cab. Then I disable AMP and CAB modelling. All my presets have HI-LO cut at the CAB block. When Cabinet Modelling is set to OFF, is...

    I was thinking about purchasing a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 but I've found a cheaper Chinese tab using the same amoled display as the S4, and specs quite similar to the S4. Alldocube X http://www.alldocube.com/en/mtk/alldocube-x.html/ Pre-order price is $239 to be delivered November 2018 (normal...

    [PRESET] Steve Lukather - TOTO - Maiden Voyage

    For the lead guitar of Toto's cover of Maiden Voyage (Herbie Hancock) Use Expression-1 for increasing the delay at the end of each phrase. I am using the bridge pickup of a Ibanez JS2450 (Dimarzio Mo'Joe) It is late at night, so I have only been using headphones for tweaking this tone...

    Implemented Mix control for the Multi-Band Compressor

    The normal compressor has a Mix control that I use quite often (to blend direct with compressed signal). Why not the M-Comp? I made this request long time ago for the Axe-FX II, but it never happened

    [BUG] CAB files exported from Axe-FX III cannot be imported to AX8 or Cab-Lab 3

    I have made a TM with the Axe FX III of an Egnater Tourmaster. I have exported it to CAB and the CAB exported to syx file, but when I try to import it to the AX8 I got the message: "Unable to import file. The selected format is not supported..." And the same happens with any of the user CABs...

    Tone-Match Export to CAB - Name not saved

    I am exporting a Tone Match to a user cab, but the name is not saved. It is displayed as "<EMPTY>". Therefore, I cannot export the CAB or properly operate with it. Anyone else having this issue? Firmware 1.15

    Wish Two instances of Synth Block

    I’ve ordered the AX8 because I need portability for rehearsals and small gigs. Reading the user manual, I see that it only has one instance of Synth. Since we do not have keyboard player in our band, I have some presets on the Axe-FX III where I use two synth blocks to play background pad...

    I am addicted to cab Air

    Short story: I’ve just found that I am addicted to the Air parameter from the CAB block. Long story: I believe that this started with the Axe-FX Ultra. I loved to tweak all the advanced parameters, so I probably got a good tone with the Air parameter engaged and I used it as a template to...

    Wish Import/Export preset buttons (open/save to computer)

    It would be nice to have a couple of small buttons at the upper left corner to open and save presets from the computer Since the Axe- FX III can only store 511 user presets and I may have a thousand or more on the hard drive (factory presets, Axechange, Austin Buddy, etc) I use very often the...

    IR "based on xxx loaded with yyy". Are xxx and yyy real?

    Some IR’s manufacturers say that their product is “Based on xxx loaded with yyy”. Are they selling real captures of the actual cabinet and speaker, or just mimic EQ curves? IR’s are just complex EQ curves that could be created “based” on what they think it should be, or mixing and retouching...
