    Real JP2C vs Axe-Fx 3 sim comparison

    I’ve had no trouble matching my JP2C, even with no tone match, but the biggest thing was getting the sliders right and the master volume. If I may make a suggestion it would be to change the impedance until you find one that reminds you of the captor. I always switch to one of the Marshall...

    Friedman cab?

    There’s a wonderful IR pack for two notes wall of sound called Fried25 and Fried30 that are a 412 Friedman. Same cab but are separate for the speakers. Requires some extra work since one has to IR capture that but.. I’ve been using the same setting from that for a couple of years. Cleans...

    Using a Rockman Tone Match (Leon Todd) for some righteous 80s jams!

    Back in September I downloaded @2112 's awesome RockMan Tone Matches, and they were perfect for this track. My cousin has been producing '80s style' synthwave music since the start of the pandemic, and asked me if I wanted to lay some notes down on one of his tracks. Ended up using all of...

    Powering FC with Pedaltrain Volto?

    I gig with a cover band and we've started using my Axe FX III for both guitars. We are trying to eliminate the amount of cabling needed, and one of those cables I'm trying to eliminate is the power for the 2nd FC. Last practice we tried a Volto and it workekd!!! But my question is: Is this a...

    2x FC-6 serving as FC-12?

    I see, I’m using the Austin buddy presets and was intending on using his fc12 settings. But in your case you must have each fc on a separate layout. I want the layouts to change on both fc in tandem but with FC2, being exclusively view 2 (to fit the fc12 layouts)

    2x FC-6 serving as FC-12?

    I see, is that somewhat similar to OMG9 for FM3 ( if you're aware?) I essentially want it to be set up that as I change layouts, they change on both FC6 with FC#2 maintaining view #2 the whole time. I see the value in also being able to have it parked on one layout, which i think I understand...

    I’ve been fooling around with connecting another FC6 to the 3. My aim is to be able to switch layouts, while also displaying two separate views I can’t seem to find any luck with getting the 2nd FC6 to follow the FC1 AND maintain View 2. It resets to View 1 when loading a new layout. in...

    Which boost would be a Klon?

    I would be soooo thrilled for a klon in the axe. Thanks to rr (if you know you know!) then I understand not, but at the very least a tumnus would rock! I prefer the tumnus to an actual klon, call me crazy but I genuinely prefer the little tumnus to several real life (authentic) Klons.

    Interface to work along Axe-Fx III?

    I have been happily using an RME fireface UC with my 2018 MBP. Have had no issues at all. I often run it in aggravate with my Axe 3. I initially got in 2016 when I made a jump to PC/Windows, and it’s always been rock solid.

    Guitar Strap Height - what are your experiences?

    wrap around your nuts!

    I use toilet paper behind my trem springs. I used to use foam but ran into an issue with the foam actually getting caught in the spring and making the trem not return to pitch. Have to be careful with that haha
  90. Sean Ashe

    wrap around your nuts!

    It's to dampen sympathetic frequencies above the nut that can become audible in recording. Also, if there is a tricky section in a song you can roll it past the nut and it will dampen the open strings. A common use is for tapping bits etc.

    Tuning stability issues

    I've not had any experience with that bridge but it could be possible the knife edges have worn already? Or maybe you got a bad bridge? As long as the strings are stretched, and everything is lubricated, then it should be fine. Or it's a flaw in hardware, or design :O

    Make sure not only your trem posts are lubricated, but also your nut (if its not locking).

    24 fret/22 frets and neck pickup

    The sound is definitely different. I know for a long time John Suhr never did anything with 24 frets (before the modern) and Tom Anderson only just this year finally did 24 frets. The sound of 21/22 fret guitars on the neck pickup, may be a bit more 'traditional' or familiar with some people...
