    Does anyone use the FX8 with a Vox AC30CC2 or similar with external reverb/tremolo switching? Is the AC30 "short-to-sleeve" per the FX8 manual?

    Controller/modifier help

    Hi guys! I think that there is a way to do this - I just can't figure out how. Ok - here's the issue: I have multi-scene preset that I use for the song "Magnificent" by U2. I use 4 different scenes for the song. (Scene1: Intro) Scene2: Bridge (not using the word "chorus" to avoid confusion...

    Live PA setup guide - speaker placement?

    Hi guys! A while back, someone linked to a very good video on PA speaker placement. It showed examples of how to place your PA speakers in different venues, and different rooms. Among other tips, it recommended an asymmetrical placement for oblong rooms. I´ve searched both this forum and...

    For new guys. FRFR vs real cabs - what to buy?

    This is intended for the less experienced/new Axe FX-user. I know this is a can of worms, but it´s been a never-ending debate as long as I have been on the forum - and I know a lot of people new to the Axe FX have difficulties choosing among all the different options of amplifying and presenting...

    Another praise for Fractal Audio support

    (We all know the Axe FX 2 is top of the line already, I mean The Edge, Metallica, Dweezil Zappa, etc.. So I am gonna say a few words about their customer support) I bought the MFC-edit program today, but couldn't for the life of me enter the license key. Emailed support (on a Saturday...

    Preset layout for FRFR and amp+cab

    Hi guys (and gals)! I've run strictly FRFR for a while, but have ordered a power amp (GT1000FX) and a couple of NL212s from Matrix - to hopefully add some "amp in room" and punch to my setup here at home. My question is how to rearrange my presets for an FRFR AND amp+cab setup. More specific...

    Sudden difference in level Output 1 vs 2 after installing RAC12

    Hi guys.... something strange happened today. I installed my newly arrived RAC12 controller in my rack, and in that process i had to unplug all the connections from the Axe FX II and plug them in again.

    Semi-acoustic clean / U2 Satellite of love

    Here is my take on U2's version of the Lou Reed classic "Satellite of Love". Loosely based on the ZOO TV tour version. The preset works as a general clean sound for a hollowbody as well. For the preset to work, you need 2 IRs: - "Clark Kent's Gift to Mankind IR" in user cab slot 50 for CAB2...

    U2 - Even Better Than The Real Thing

    My take on U2s Even Better Than The Real Thing. Used with Gretsch Electromatic 12-string, for FRFR/headphones - FW 12.02. Pitch-Block and Wah-block both controlled by EXTRN1, for "sweep"-effect - so be sure to have EXTRN1 attached to an expression pedal, or change the modifiers on both the...

    Changing "UP" and "DOWN" switches on the MFC

    Hello! Is it possible to change/edit the control switches? I haven't been able to find information on this. I would like the "UP" and "DOWN"-switches on the bottom right of the MFC to trade places - so that the "UP"-switch is on the bottom - would make it easier for me to change presets.
