    The prime example of this is when you have a guitar with a separate piezo output, I run both simultaneously as piezo alone sounds sterile to me.

    Should I buy an FC-6 or an FC-12

    Ever go sans cab block?

    Just try it, guitar, amp, reverb nothing else. Choose the “cab” on the amp’s speaker page and give it a listen. It can sound very “amp in the room” raw. It gets interesting at 100%+.

    Control switch = awesome

    I discovered the control switch today. Instead of using a pedal or input boost I just wanted more of same amp. Set preamp gain, master volume and input trim to CS1 as momentary. When I hold down switch I get a little more of everything but no tone alteration.

    I’m thinking maybe via PP FC change. What if, you had a wah block that you were basically making useless as your current wah channel did not have auto engage set on. As you flip the switch at the top of the travel, that could change the scene via PP. In our new scene a different channel of...

    What’s your favorite touch sensitive amp?

    Solutions for using Axe-Fx as an in the room amp?

    Questions about models for Axe-Fx III
