    Factory presets

    This just popped in my mind: the axe is loaded with quite a lot of factory presets. These were all made based on the first software version. Now we are at 15.1. All the vendors bring out updated versions of their presets when it makes a difference. As I understand version 15.0 made a lot of...

    Wireless

    Hi all, Since like forever When I had an all tube huge rack I was taught that my witeless should be isolated from the rack to prevent hummm. I have rubber rack rears and use tap tape around the screws etc to make as little contact with the metal of the rack case as possible. My question is if...

    Number of the same effects

    Hi all, dumb question maybe, but I’d like to understand. It’s not a wish either, so relax haha. Just curious why for example the pitch shifter block can only be placed twice in a preset (ignoring channels now, just for the sale of the argument). I get that some high cpu demanding blocks like...

    Cabir.eu

    Hi all. Anybody know if the IRs from cabir.eu are ultra res? My German is good enough bit I can’t find it on the site. My tech talk is not so good so I can’t tell on the basis of tech info. I talked the owner once and he was a really friendly guy. I do however have the impression that nothing...

    Skrydstrup and CAE

    Hi all, Although my quest for a midi controller has ended I am still curious. I remember skrydstrup providing the midi controller for petrucci and various other big names. The brand seems to have gone low profile and it isn’t even easy to find info. Anyone have some insight? Then CAE makes...

    problem with this preset

    Hi All, This is the cooper carter preset that was eq'd by another member and I downloaded from the forum. I changed a few things. Now the curious part: I added a whammy. It is attached to cc pedal #5. When I turn on the axe fx and go to this preset there is a delay between my playing on the...

    Hi all, I am running into problems with both my axe as the editor. I emailed support bit it is a Sunday. My guess is that the first thing they will try is a reset. Any harm ( no pun intended) in me resetting my axe 3 mark 2 ? Of course I’ll backup my presets. then updating everything and see if...

    Problem in utilities?

    Hi all, I was going through the axe looking for a function when I stumbled on this. In the utilities, ADC levels my values are fluctuating constantly, as well as the percentages. Only “out3” isn’t moving. pedal 1and 2 change all the time, so fast that I can’t even make out the exaxt numbers...

    Axe fx3 mark 2. Grrrrr

    I went from an axe 2 (mark 1) to the axe 3 mark 2. Here I was, being content and organized. Now here comes the 3. I bought it for the extra preset space, room for more IRs and the power to put more blocks in one preset. I figured I’d just export my presets from the 2 and be done with it. But...

    programming Gate

    I have a gate setup for a feedback effect. (sounds like I know what I'm doing but I just bought it from Fremen haha) Love it. It is combined with the wah. It it set so that it only does something when I rock the pedal. The modifier is attached to the treshold. What I really want is to be able...

    Voes is awesome

    Bought a Voes mx-18 to go with my axe fx 3 mark 2. It is awesome. I had some questions and Patrick, the owner, responded within minutes after sending an email. The mx 18 itself is awesome. Some features many of you might appreciate: You have 18 buttons, also press and hold so that makes it 36...

    New question on cc control axe 3

    Hi all, I figured out how to connect my cc pedals. However: all factory settings are set to “fc pedal 1” (or 2) Is it possible to have my cc pedals work without going through each preset and changing that to “ external 1,2 etc. This will be soooo time consuming. when I used the learn function I...

    Quick question. My mark 2 is nearly on its way and in preparation I’d like to know if the extra 500 user preset slots are empty or filled with factory presets. (My assumption is that they will be empty) Harm

    Jamie Humphries

    Since the axe took away the fun of buying gear I started to buy instructional dvds now and then. Beside the fact that some are uninteresting or simply rechewing standard ideas Jamie is really annoying me. He always has disclaimers like “something like this”or “the artist will never play it the...

    Wish Cab links

    I would like to be able to see which IR’s are in use. I was installing presets with IRs and was moving the already installed IRs around. Also when you buy an IR pack you get a lot of them. You test them for a while and then you pick some. Some will be unused but nowhere to check which remain...

    Hi all, I am soon going to buy an axe 3. That means I'll be parting with either my axe 2 or my ax8. I'll be using te remaining unit as a backup and for rehearsals. I'd like to use the 2 for that, simply because it's better haha. What I would like to do is make it as transportable as possible...

    external buttons on mfc-101

    Hi All, So annoying that I can't figure this out myself. I have 4 extra switches added to my mfc. External switches, to be precise. I have always assigned them to be scene 2,3 and 4 (the fourth button I didn't use) Now my mfc has been in repair and I got it back set to factory settings. 1) Yes...

    I was just browsing and looking at pedalboards. I came across this: And thought it might be good to share. It expands the fc6 as well as the 12. Just for clarity: I have no connection with the company whatsoever. Company name is Otter custom Design.

    scene names in display

    Hi All, I think I saw that the answer is "no" but just to make sure: When you have a footcontroller with led ( FAS, RJM or LIQ FD) screens with names in it. Can the display for the individual button for for example scene 2, show the name of the scene? I know the name of the current scene is...

    wireless settings Sennheiser EWD1 digital

    Hi all, I found out that somehow my wireless unit was setup wrong. Long story short: I did a factory reset. Now I notice a difference between straight from the guitar and via the wireless. Of course I am not so naieve to think it should be 100% the same, but I'd like to make sure that I at least...

    FC-12 and Axe-Fx 3 enough buttons?

    Hi All, I have the axe 2, an ax8 and the mfc-101. I am really tempted to buy the axe 3. I have been looking all over the forum, but can't find an answer to the following: I do not like the switching system on the ax8. press/press hold, etc. The result is that it is my rehearsal rig. 3 cc...

    G66' service is fantastic

    Hi all, I just want to share and express my gratitude and amazement. I bought 2 Q12A speakers via G66. First time there was something wrong it was a warranty matter. They fixed it very quickly. I even got replies to mails on a Saturday evening from their Tech guy! Now I have a simple but...

    Block MFC bank from going lower than 0

    Hi all, For a while when I pressed " bank down" it didn't go under the first bank. I had to press up to go to the highest bank. That was excellent. I must have changed something, because now, when I press "down" after the first bank it goes to the highest preset bank. Any way to block it...

    Other mission pedals on ax8

    hi all, I googled and read posts and discussions on various places. Still the short and simple “yes”. Or “no”. Answer I did not find. Mission makes many variations of pedals. I believe fractal needs a pedal with a pot of between 10 and 100 to work. A fractal product, being axe fx or ax8 has a...

    Patch panel power socket

    Hi All, I am planning to make a patch panel to get all my axe FX2 connections to the front of the rack. So far it will be all neutrik. I found panel connectors for everything where you can plug in on both sides of the panel, so no soldering or anything necessary. For example: in the panel is a...

    Hi all, I don't know if this is posted in the right place, but my problem is that I my distorted sounds sound like I have a cocked wah.

    Bug? I think I messed up multi delay

    Hi all, In short: I bought an mfc-101 to go with my axe 2. I reset everything to factory presets on both units. Updated both devices, etc. Everything according to instructions. Then I started fiddling with stuff like we all do. I did do something with the delays (connected mix to expression...

    Hi all, After using a db M10-2 active monitor for quite a while now I finally bought a matrix q12a. So far I have gone through a lot of the frustrations of more people whose posts I've read. So far no stock preset has really been useful. The sound was Always with a blanket over it. I built...

    muffled on/ off since update

    Hello all, In short all the facts: I updated the Axe FX 2 to the quantum version. I had a gig the next day, of course I was careful with my gear, but still it needed to be moved from the house and back. The day after that I noticed while playing that suddenly, like a wave, everything became...
