    Any Digitech Drop users here? Do you have specific patches for using it?

    I've decided to add the drop to my board (going into an Axe II XL > Matrix GT1000 > 2x12). I'll be using it for full octave down (no dry signal). I'm sure you're all aware that you lose output / drive when using the drop (lower the tuning, less gain it seems on the same patch). My question...

    Tips for avoiding clipping while using heavy reverb / delay?

    I'm having issues with clipping, notes in the lower register mainly, when using reverb + delay + multi tap + etc... It's not as bad when I'm running clean, but when I turn on OD / distortion, it becomes more of an issue. I've reduced the output of my patches (clean patches around -16.5 db...

    Reverb: A few questions / issues with the "Hold" function

    I've started to mess around with the reverb 'hold' feature to get some EHX Freeze action, but I'm having a few issues. I'm using my EV-1 to toggle it (heel down - off, toe down - on). When it reaches the transition point, going off to on, I will get this scratchy pot type sound that gets...

    Mapping IA functions in one preset clears another presets IA Mapping

    I was working on making two different presets - one using Dbl Vrb Nrml and another using the Friedman HBE V1 model. I noticed that after mapping IA functions for one preset (using IA switches 6-10 for both presets), that the other preset's IA 6, 7 and 9 switches clear, showing no LED...

    EV-1 as volume (with axe or regular pedalboard setup) volume taper issue

    I've been using the EV-1 in one of two ways: 1) plugged into my MFC via TRS or 2) using the analog in and outputs to use as a volume pedal with my pedalboard I'm finding that the initial introduction of the guitar signal when starting at heel down seems to be a bit sudden. The guitar...

    Advanced parameter suggestions as a starting point?

    The more I get comfortable with editing my patches, the more I'd like to dive into the deeper editing options. I think the only "advanced" parameters I've messed with at this point are the Dynamic Depth and Dynamic Presence. I'm not really sure where to go after that. Do any of you have your...

    DBA Fuzz War clipping the input of my Axe (updated with new question! 2/11)

    *2/11/16 update with new question* So I did a side by side comparison of my Deluxe Reverb Reissue against the Axe + Matrix gt1000 - both going through my Mesa Recto 2x12 cabinet. The Fuzz war has tons of boost on tap when running into the Actual amp while going into the front of the axe (using...

    Am I crazy? Setting my INSTR IN slightly hotter sounds better to me . . .

    I'm running a Fender Modern Telecaster Plus (Stock pickups) - It has a humbucker in the bridge and I set my INSTR IN to that pickup. Here's the thing: When I set my INSTR IN to where it's basically tickling the red lights, everything's fine. That's at around 49-50. However, after...

    Finally sold my last tube amp . . . sort of

    Just wanted to say thanks for all the help I've gotten through this forum over the past few months. It has allowed me to get inside the deeper features of the axe and get great results compared to my old tube rigs. I still kept one amp though: My first tube amp - a Deluxe Reverb Reissue. I...

    Scene output on preset - is this normal?

    tl;dr version - On at least 20 presets from scene 2 - 8, output is at -20.00db (no sound). I don't remember it being like this before. I've been having a few issues since updating to 1.05 (preset being completely replaced by another preset out of nowhere, blocks changed). I noticed after...

    Anyone using their FX8 with the Axe FX?

    Curious? If you guys are, how are you running it? 4CM? I imagine running the two together would give you more CPU on the axe FX.
