    Fender - finally!

    I'm finding that the stock fender patches, and many others that I've auditioned, sound bassey. This isn't a new v10 thing (at least for me). They always seem to be set this way. Changing the basic tone controls doesn't fix it. Did you find you needed to make a lot of adjustments?

    FWIW, I have stopped using Global blocks in AE. They are just not reliable. I hope they get fixed because they make patch managment so much easier. I'm having other issues with AE not related to Globals (another thread on "Sync From HW Issues"). So, you are not losing your mind!

    Thankfully, the Axe is working OK! I'm hopefull that this will get worked out and believe it will, it's just very frustrating. I'll probably not use AE until this gets resolved...it's just not stable for me. I'm OK with the native editor but it seems archaic compared to AE.
