    Out-of-Phase Humbucker Guitar Filter Block Help

    I have been trying to simulate an out-of-phase humbucker setup for a preset using the Axe-FX III Filter block. I have a Gibson Les Paul, but really don't want to re-wire it with an out-of-phase switch. Also, I'm trying to emulate the Peter Green LP out-of-phase sound. I've attached the filter...

    12.08 Public Beta 4, Tom Petty Preset

    Really digging 12.08 Beta 4, so I though I would use it to beef up a Tom Petty patch. I used this patch when I played out with cover bands, so it works well in a live performance context. W/firmware 12.08 Public Beta 4, came improvements with the Compressor and Pitch Shifting, so I have added...

    62 Marshall Bluesbreaker

    I was really inspired by the latest Axe-FX III Firmware 10.1, so I thought I might try to contribute a preset based on the 62 Marshall Bluesbreaker...I tried to match the sound bytes from the Marshall page and from what I recall from John Mayall/Eric Clapton days. Here's a link to the patch...

    Guitar Setup and how setup affects Axe-Fx

    @Admin M@ Would be cool if we could have a Thread Group dedicated to how Guitars (and Setup) affects the Axe-FX.

    Guitars and String Gauge Discussion

    I just ran across a new string manufacturer out of Nashville called "StringJoy". I ordered a couple of their balanced sets (9's and 10's). A little expensive, but because they're "balanced tension" they do have a better feel...I'm hoping they last longer to justify the cost. Also, they have a...

    Having trouble using the looper, feel it affects tone of presets

    Again, I love all of the patches in this collection.

It's almost as if the added blocks by themselves...

    MFC 2.18 Midi Thru Looping Bug
