    Tone Match and Cab Block?

    I don't think there is a way to do this, but maybe I have a quarantine brain and am just not thinking straight. I have a Tone Match (from my AxeIII) of my Marshall JMP1 and 100/100 rig. It was done using a load box from the speaker output of the power amp, so that I can use it into a SS Power...

    Studio Mixing with IEM Buds

    Anyone here have recommendations for IEM buds that they have or would use for mixing? I have studio monitors (and some Blue Mofi headphones) at home, but I need something for travel. I often find myself with a lot of time when travelling and would only be able to pack a laptop and ear buds. I...

    AX8 acting crazy!

    At a gig right now so hard to search the forum on my phone. Anyone ever had all the lights on their AX8 go crazy, just blinking all over in all random order. Just about to go on and all of a sudden its lighting up like a Christmas tree and it didn't stop the entire set. I have 4 presets and no...

    MFC-Edit and Axe2 Assistance Needed - Assigning Controllers

    I want to assign a single button on my MFC to trigger a whammy sweep up 2 octaves. It was very simple to do on the Ax8 (Axe 8 Edit software allows me to assign any button to be 'Controller 2', then I go into the Edit Modifier menu and make the Control source 'Controller 2', make it a 'momentary'...

    Carvin Website

    I'm afraid to post this because I don't want anyone to remove it.... But if you happen to jump on Carvin's website, you'll see a new Legacy Pedal on the front page, with a pic of Steve Via. .....and you will also see the Axe FX loud and proud in his rack. It was the first thing that popped...

    Bug? Volume Spike

    This is a long shot.... But this has happened to me twice so far (in the middle of a gig) in the past 6 months, but I cannot recreate at home. Axe FX2, MFC-101.....firmware 6.x on the Axe I believe. I have 4 main presets I use, nothing fancy. I jump between them all night. Last night I just...

    Got to try the XiTone Open Back (Michael Britt) cab......

    I’ve been trying to write this for a while….as Mick let me try one of these cabs probably 6 weeks ago. In short – if you like open back cabs, this is an outstanding solution. I set it up side by side with an RCF NX12ma (which I’m a big fan of). I think the DSP had 9 different options, but I...

    [PROBABLY NOT A BUG] Issue with a sudden volume spike and buzzy wah sound

    Looking for some tips to troubleshoot this (and determine if it's a bug or not). At a gig last night and when I switched presets at one point, all of a sudden my volume was crazy loud, it sounded buzzy (like the cab sims were off) and it sounded like I had a half cocked wah on. It happened...

    Any other options on how to use 'ALT Preset'?

    I have my MFC set up so that buttons 1-5 are my 5 presets. Is there any way to have the 'ALT preset' feature (pressing the preset button a second time) change the scene, instead of selecting a new preset? For each of my 5 presets, I use scene 1 as the primary....and I have scene 2 set up as a...

    Can the Pedal Jack 1/4 on the back of the Axe 2 control more than one function?

    Referring to the 1/4" Pedal Jack on the back of the Axe 2.... The manual walks though how to use a single switch (TS - Tip Sleeve) to scroll through presets, etc. Pretty simple, and works well. Based on the fact that the Pedal Jack accepts a TRS (Tip Ring Sleeve) for Expression pedals, I'm...

    Trouble Connecting with Windows Vista

    All Amps have no gain on Boot Up [NOT A BUG]

    This has happened to me the last 2 gigs with the Axe. (since I downloaded FW14) I boot up the Axe2, turn on my wedge.....all my presets (including High Gain) are 'clean'. EVERY patch. I did not record the issue because I do not have time (while in a panic trying to get my rig up and running...

    External Pedal Control not working properly

    I will post a patch later (as my Axe is in my car at the moment), but curious is anyone else has experienced this (or could try this). I have a Mission pedal going into the back of the Axe (no MFC), and I trigger a Wah/Wammy etc. depending on the patch. Has worked flawlessly since day 1, but...

    Boot up Axe and sounds like I have cocked wah on?

    So when I boot up my Axe, sometimes it sounds like I have a half cocked wah on. I flip on another preset and flip back and it sounds normal again. Just reloaded all preset banks, and I haven't touched them. Very odd. Anyone else experience this?

    New XiTone 2x12 FRFR

    I saw a few folks mentioning they would like a 2x12 FRFR solution....so I thought I'd start this thread. Recently, Mick Farlow from XiTone cabs....created a prototype 2x12 with a Stereo Class A/B Power Amp. He let me borrow it this week, and I spend some time playing through it this weekend...

    Mr. Scary - Tone Match

    First tone match post.... When I created the TM, I was in standard tuning. When I tracked this audio clip, I was tuned flat.....so for comparison purposes, I dropped the original track down a half step as well. I'm no George Lynch....or even remotely close.....so be gentle on my playing...

    Axe 2 Racking...

    Looking for opinions on this.... I have my Axe 2 mounted in a 6 space. I use 4 of the spaces (Axe 2, Power Conditioner, Wireless) I have all of my cables hard wired and they get stored in the extra 2 spaces (XLR's to FOH and my FRFR, Midi, AC Power for FRFR, etc). The upside is that I can...

    Output change between Output 1 and 2

    Somebody please help me determine if I'm crazy or not. This weekend I found that my patches through my on stage FRFR were not translating properly (volume wise) to FOH. The volumes between my different patches were not the same in FOH, as compared to what I hear out of my on stage monitor...

    Getting Extremely Tight Metal Tones

    Drum Machine Software Recommendations

    It's been a while since I've recorded without a drummer. My last experience using a drum machine was an old Roland unit where I could tap in patterns by hand. I am looking for software (instead of old school hardware) for putting together drum tracks. So my question is....what are folks...

    My FRFR Shootout (QSC, Verve, RCF, JBL)

    Most of these speakers were auditioned in my basement, but a couple were at a pro audio dealer. The pro audio dealer had a back room with a stage, where they let me set up their speakers and some of mine….and crank them up. Please remember, this is just my opinion. There is no science going...

    First gig with the Axe....

    Older Atomic vs. new Atomic

    Popping Noise when turning Sag on & off (is this normal?)

    Just got the Ultra (loaded with 9.03). Does anyone know if it's normal for the Axe to make a popping sound when turning the SAG from 0 to (any value). It also happens if I change from a patch with my midi pedal (if I change from a patch without SAG to a patch with SAG. Is this normal?

    Power Amp Wattage Question

    Can someone help me understand why it's ok to over power a guitar speaker if you're using a Solid State Amp? I own much PA equipment and all of my speakers have Continuous/Program/Peak ratings which for example may be 500/1000/2000 watts. And I always power them right in the sweet spot (in this...
