    [Solved (mostly) thanks to a Friedman ASM-12] FM3 sonic quandary: CLR versus real power amp and cabs: A review from a newbie, and Do I need a XiTone?

    The thing I love about my Xitone active wedge that the CLR can’t do is the ability to only have the 12” speaker active without the tweeter, and when you turn off the cab and power amp sims in the axe, it gives you “amp in the room.”
  20. Fenderbendr

    What’s a good FRFR solution I get get relatively quickly?

    I’m using DSP mode 5, which is the raw 12” speaker without the tweeter, so it’s the same as us using a power amp and a real guitar cab, meaning you get amp in the room tones if you disable the axe’s power amp and cab sims. This is from another site about the DSP modes: “A 5-position DSP Mode...

    Is there a way to route computer audio from iTunes or YouTube into the axe's signal chain so I can apply eq and stuff to it? Right now it is sent right to output 1, but I can't figure out a way to put it in a signal chain with the USB IN block if it's even possible.

    Fractal Audio AMP models: Matchbox D-30 (Matchless DC-30)

    We NEED this channel in the Axe. Helix has the EF86 and the jumped version of the two channels, which is a great way to run it. I feel like having the 12AX7 but not having the EF86 channel is like having an AC30 but only the normal channel or like having only the clean channel of a MESA amp.

    Ares 1 for AX8?

    Well, he hasn’t really said that 10.01 is the last AX8 firmware, so there’s a possibility we could get the Ares port. We got some of it, but not as much of the improvements that the axe ii got with the latest firmware.
  68. Fenderbendr

    Reality check tonight

    I would try 120hz and 6000hz for the cuts, and you could also try to boost the mids a little bit by using the 5 band passive eq in the amp block.
  69. Fenderbendr

    Which IR do you like with the DC30?

    I actually have an AX8, so it’s easier to port than the axe iii would be. Thanks!

    AX8 -> Headphones VS AX8 -> Interface -> Headphones

    Yeah, a small mixer like the Mackie 402-VLZ4, which is what I use(I have the older VLZ3), would be great for plugging your laptop in and the ax8 at the same time. It has a headphone output that the ax8 sounds awesome through.

    First Use At Church

    Yeah, I play at church regularly and I like to use the Mark 5 band eq in the amp block and turn the 750hz frequency up at least to 3. Even though I don't have much control over the volume, at least giving my tone more mids can help it cut through better. I use the DC30 model btw.

    Will the AX8 eventually get the advanced cab parameters?

    Awesome! Hope they can do it! I'd be willing to part with some CPU in order to use it.

    They should give us an option to enable the advanced parameters in the cab block for a 5-10% loss in CPU power. I'd be willing to give up some CPU for the parameters, especially the "room" tab for playing with headphones.
