    USB In to Out 2 Problem

    I think that the computer audio goes to either output 1 or output 2, selectable in the setup screens. You can't send to both, at least not currently.

    The XL has more preset slots. Non XL has 383, XL has 512. Other than that, I think they're the same.

    Received Axe-FX III this afternoon... Few questions on Setup!!!

    If it were me, I would start very simply. Guitar to are 3 to monitors and just play for a while to make sure everything working. Then, connect to the computer USB and get that established. Once that's done you can work in all your other gear. Apparently some of the unis went out with the factory...

    Help with Phaser block, can't get a good MXR Phase 100 type sound

    If memory serves, the Maestro added in a small amount of pink noise, which makes the sound of the sweep more obvious. Not sure if there's a way to do that on the Axe.

    Rocktron Velocity 300 opinions

    Had one for a couple months, which I played through a Marshall 1960. Was never able to get a sound I was happy with. Switched to 2 QSC K 12s and life is good.

    Instrument cables

    Agree that the most significant factor is the quality of construction. Flexible cable that doesn't twist up into a mess and sturdy connectors, most important to me. Most of the nonsense that the manufacturers describe wouldn't apply at audio frequencies, maybe at UHF or microwave frequencies...

    Radley's FW 10.0 early impressions:

    It is kind of strange that so many users, who would comfortably adjust the controls on a "real" amp to get a sound they like, seem to expect the axe to sound perfect at default settings. Just pretend its a real amp, and adjust it to your liking.

    So how many of you made the switch to 'all axe'...?

    When I first got the axe-fx, I had a Roctron velocity 300 and Marshall 1960A. I set up the axe into this, played for a short while, then tried it running into a small home stereo in my practice room. 20 minutes later, I loaded the Roctron and Marshall into the car, drove to GC, and traded for 2...

    Problem loading v9 bank C

    All's well that ends well, I guess. No joy using Midi-Ox, but I was able to load Bank C with Axe-Manage. Doesn't seem to have caused any issues (so far), and much faster than Midi-Ox. The only new presets I see are in Bank A, but they do sound great! Thanks for the help.

    Guitar setup question: adjusting trem for different strings

    You may need to loosen the trem springs a bit more. When you check neck relief, fret at the 1st and last fret, look for a small gap midway. Some people like to use a piece of string as a feeler guage. Next time , before adjusting try to measure, and or mark everything before you make any...

    Guitar setup question: adjusting trem for different strings

    I wouldn't start with the truss rod. Just adjust the spring tension to get the bridge back in it's original position. 10's to 9's should just require a slight loosening of the spring tension. Get it as good as you can, then play it a couple days before you mess with the neck.
  34. PaulS

    Changing strings: all at once VS one at a time.

    On an archtop with a pedestal bridge, one at a time precludes accidentally moving the bridge and screwing up the intonation. Not that you cant get it back, but it can be a pain. Of course, if you really need to clean and oil the fingerboard, you've got to take them all off. Then you can cheat...

    Question for guys that do alternate picking really fast

    After many years of practicing exercises with a metronome, emphasizing speed, speed, speed. I've come to the conclusion that you are best served by just playing relaxed, If you spend enough time playing the speed just comes naturally without any special effort. It's a lot more fun this way too.

    Getting A Good Jazz Tone

    For most jazz stuff, I've been happy with the Mr. Benson patch. Most I've had to do is add a light chorus, and play with the tone controls. I think it's pretty close right out of the box.

    QSC K12's

    Both, they sound much better, previously I had a velocity 300 and Marshall 1960A. This sounded unpleasant to me. Also the Marshall is bulky to move. The K-12s are small, light - even my wife could carry them

    QSC K12's

    Been using 2 K 12's for around a year now and no complaints. They may not be the very best option, but they're affordable, very, very loud, and they sound great. So much better than the power amp guitar cab.

    Is Guitar Center going to be around much longer? Fender too?

    Fortunately, there are some people still building good stuff. PRS builds quite a few top notch products in the old school Gibson style, and you can even get one at GC, although other dealers are probably a better choice. If you want a Fender style guitar, there are many options. My main...

    Who has sold 4x12 cabs after go fr/fr ?

    first time buying a hollowbody guitar "jazz box" any suggestions ... ???

    At that price, I would check out Eastman, maybe an 810, they are made in China, but are quite well constructed, hand made, good workmanship and materials. Also worth looking at are the Korean made D'Angelico's. They are not quite as much a hand crafted instrument, but they are nice, and very...

    Having trouble breaking out of my funk...

    If you are comfortable with the minor pentatonic, just move it down 3 frets and you've got a major pentatonic, more of a country sound over a major chord. If you know major scales in all keys, you can start playing over ii-v-I changes, more of a jazz perspective. Once you have that down, you can...

    What brand of cable are you using for guitar to Axe?

    I think, if you plug in the numbers to the skin effect equation, you can see that at the range of frequencies encountered in audio equipment, it's influence would be minimal. Of course, if the frequency approaches 500 mhz and up, things change. so, while it is real, it just isn't likely to...

    Home studio humidity control

    The ideal solution would be to install both on the furnace if you have a forced air heating system. Easy to adjust, minimal maintenance, but maybe a bit expensive. The newer steam injection humidifiers are a nice option, but they aren't cheap.

    I've been somewhat skeptical of the claims some people make to be able to hear the difference between A440 and A438. Seems a bit hard to swallow. A lot of professional piano tuners might not be able to do this. But, apparently some of us can hear pitch quite accurately without a reference. I've...

    This could be a really convenient way to experiment with varoius tweaks. Can you play back the mix without the wet tracks and process the dry track while using Axe Edit to adjust the preset?

    Unless you're involved in production work, I wouldn't be to concerned about the slight exposure to lead from a few repairs or conncetions.

    Gibson interview regarding the Fed raids
