    Studio Monitors question: I am seeing a pretty good cyber price for either the JBL 305P MkII or the KRK Rokit 5 G3 Active Studio Monitors at Pro Audio Star. Any thoughts or advice on which way to go? Or any other options in the <$100 range and link to a cyber Monday or Black Friday

    Wireless guitar recommendations

    With Black Friday deals, I am interested in maybe going wireless on my guitar to AX8. Looking at ads, they run from $40 to $200 and probably way beyond that. I would prefer to stay under $100, but that may not be possible for quality. Any recommendations and/or warnings with reasons would be...

    New Fractal Products?

    Hi anyone here, I have an AX8 and have loved it. I have not been on this forum lately mostly cuz my AX8 works fine and yet it is discontinued so the discussion has tapered and I have had it long enough to know how to get around to make it do what I need. I love the fact of everything on one...

    Eventide H9 - changing patches with SCENES

    About 3 and half minutes into this very cool and inspiring video: @2112 goes into changing the H9 patches via scenes. However, he does not get into the basic 101 of how to set it up. I have plugged the numbers into the Midi PCs page that he has, but the H9 patch does not change for me like it...

    Tube amp humming

    I have both a Fender 65 Princeton RI and a Fender Blues Deluxe RI. Both wonderful amps. If I plug directly into them from my guitars they are quiet and lovely. If I plug into them from the AX8 they hum noticeably. I use a Fractal Humbuster cable. On the Blues Deluxe I have tried the direct in...

    Ducking Delay

    Forgive my ignorance of cool things, but I recently discovered the "ducking" delay and what it does. Can anyone elaborate on the various block parameters and your thoughts on what and why you do what you do on the ducking delay? Also, is there anyway do do a ducking reverb in the AX8? Thanks!

    Waves PRS Supermodels

    I have the Waves GTR 3 I got in a bundle a couple years back. I could get some nice cleans but most crunch and distortion was not very good. My AX8 far exceeds. But wanting an in DAW tool I was looking at their PSR SuperModels. Anyone have opinions on this they are willing to offer? Thx

    FAS amp models

    In a recent thread, "So, what's everyone's favorite amp model?" Someone recommended the FAS Modern III. I tend toward Fenders (cleans and crunch) and use an ES-335 most of the time and have not scanned the FAS models for a couple years, but thought I would give it a try. Caveats: My 335 is in...

    Using Xitone Powered Wedges as recording monitors?

    I just ran one of my Logic recorded mixes through my one Xitone Wedge, it sounded incredible. The articulation, clarity, and punch were remarkable.

    Xitone 12" Powered Wedge

    H9 and AX8

    I have seen a few posts mentioning using the H9 in conjunction with the AX8. Does anyone know if you can put the H9 in the signal chain and have the AX8, when you change patch, also change the patch in the H9? I hope the question makes sense.
