    Power supply

    Are you using MIDI or Faslink between MFC and Axe FX? I'm using CAT 5 with no issues myself, but I know you've had a lot of trouble with it - so I understand you want to stay away from CAT 5. But if I'm not mistaken, the Axe FX can power the MFC through either 7-pin MIDI or Faslink?

    Preamp bias default on fw 2.0X (question to fas)

    Depends on the preset, really. I like to experiment a little. I generally use one stereo cab, panned 50% in most of my U2-presets. Some have two stereocabs.

    So I played around with the second one too, and they kind of complement each other. I find #5 really useful for those chimey highs, while #8 is a bit more mellow. I use them blended with each other and other IRs, and sometimes only #5. Great stuff!
