    Sold My AX8, Bought a Mark V

    Good on ya... What ever works is all good. No need to justify your decisions. I've had a Mark IV and V ( and a lot of other amps ). While I loved the sound when it 'worked', I hated the night after night of different sounding situations and hoping it would sound the same. I've stayed in the...

    AX8 as a MIDI controller for Ableton

    This can probably be done with Max for Live. I created a CC to Midi device to do in song patch changes from Live (since it is not natively supported)

    [Moke's Custom Presets] 'AX8' Thread - Updated to Q9.04/10.01 -New presets, Videos, Huge Discounts

    The Rebel Yell and Surrender patches should be a 'must buy' for anyone trying to explore what can be done with the AX8. There are things Moke is doing that I would have never thought of...

    Am I the only one who has downsized my pedal board?

    What is this pedal board you speak of <g>. I have the AX8, an expression pedal, and wireless receiver that I pull out of a Gator bag. Depending on the stage some stuff goes in different places. Adding a pedal board makes it heavier. I can carry my whole rig in 1 trip - AxeFX bag, two...

    How come no one posted about new AX8 factory presets?

    The file is 58k bigger so I would guess more presets? I have not opened it yet.

    AX8 midi "Ignore Redundant PC"?

    I did a fully automated show with a AxeFXII XL for a few years. All patch changes, scene, and filter sweeps were done with Ableton Live. I thought I was done with it and sold the XL and picked up a AX8. Of course, now I have a one off gig using Ableton this weekend. I restored my patches...

    Sigh... gig failure.

    For a year I did a fully tracked show (2014). I had all patches and scene changes done via midi through Ableton Live - but still had a MFC MK3 on the floor 'just in case'. I had several times where the volume would disappear or the patch would change to somewhere WAY away from the intended...

    Clark Kent Job - First Time (Official Music Video) [CHECK OUT MY BAND]

    Nice! If it were my mix I might consider pulling back the effects on the vox by about 5-10% and pushing up the bass @ 140hz by 3db OR just add a little more overall. But that's just me <g>.

    MFC / Scene problems when receiving Midi Sync

    No USB adapter involved here - midi is via the physical MIDI port. Total sync is set to On on the MFC. Actually, I reset the MFC to factory defaults and it happened 2 times during the show. I will recreate it again and see if I can do anything from the front panel of the AxeFX. It was not in...

    Wish 4 CC's in a IA

    I read that thread....would someone explain the custom Hex code I would need to do this? I really don't want to define them all to the same CC because I may use them individual. Also, would this change the state of the the IA LED's for whatever I have mapped to this switch? Thanks
