    Chorus - Settings for Parallel

    Hi Folks, So I'm redoing everything (moving up from 15.02 finally!) and I'm starting from scratch. I'm working on some of the effects now and I'm having some difficulty with Chorus in parallel. Delay and Reverb were easy - mix to 100% and level to taste. However those settings don't appear with...

    Factory Cabs in Cab Packs

    Hi Folks, I'm starting from scratch going up from FW15.02 to the latest Quantum beta and have decided to start pretty simple and am modifying existing factory presets and use factory cabs before I start delving into my bulging IR folder. I've found in the wiki where it lists which cab packs...

    My KickTags Have Arrived!!

    Hi everyone, The postman's just been and dropped off a package with Kicktags printed on the outside! I thought I'd pop up some pictures so you can see what's what. I was previously using the labels supplied by G66 - there's nothing wrong with them, it's just that we're about to move into doing...

    My Back Loves the Axe-FX!

    Despite having used the Axe-FX for the last two years or so, I'm only just getting around to sorting out my previous rig - I know, terrible... It's all still in the pedalboard and rack case that I used. TC Electronic G-System with multiple pedals, split between the rack case and the pedalboard...

    Atomic CLR for Keyboards

    I'm the guitarist for my band Total80s, but my main instrument is the piano. Therefore, when we need to dep our keyboard player, I get the nod. The logic being that guitarists are much easier to find than keyboards players. Can't say I disagree. So I set the keyboards up this morning and rather...

    Gruv V-Cart Solo

    Today marked my second festival gig, and first one with the Axe-FX II. Last year's gig was an absolute shambles and the distance from the car park to the festival was ridiculous. We were told that they were providing carts and the like so we could move stuff around, but that was just silly as it...

    NGD - PRS Custom 24

    Hi Everyone, This is one of those weird situations where a guitar you've played before and hated on a different day speaks volumes to you on another. When I picked up my PRS513, which was a few years ago now, I tried a variety of other PRS guitars, including the Custom 24, Custom 22 and a...

    CLR as a Monitor, with In-Ears?

    Okay, so I know the title doesn't make a lot of sense off the bat, but bear with me. I was driving home from my (hopefully) last gig with my "traditional" rig and was pondering how I could use the CLR on stage. We're in the process of transitioning across to In-Ear Monitors and, if I'm honest...

    How Do You Deal With Engineer Ignorance?

    I've just got in from band practice having had an uncomfortable conversation with the drummer, who also used to engineer. Tonight was the first night at band practice with my Axe-FX and Atomic CLR (more to come on that in another thread) and the consensus on the sound was a resounding thumbs...

    So My Studio Slips CLR Wedge Cover Arrived...

    I got it out of its box, zipped it up and put it to one side waiting patiently for the CLRs to arrive in the EU. My cats have a tendency to sleep in my music cases if I leave them unattended. Not this one, I thought to myself; I haven't paid for the extra padding and suchlike only to have it...

    Europe - The Final Countdown, Harmonizer

    Hi All, We're in the throes of putting Europe's The Final Countdown into our set and, now that I've persuaded my fingers they can bend themselves for the solo, I thought I'd look into refining it a little bit. Whether the solo is double tracked or they used a harmonizer, I don't know, but I'm...

    Went to see Whitesnake and Journey tonight

    Just got in from seeing Whitesnake and Journey at Wembley Arena tonight. Annoyingly, the traffic was bad and we were late, otherwise we could have added Thunder to that list too. Both bands were superb and seemed to be having a blast. Was great to hear all those fantastic classic songs live...

    Small Stand for Pole Mountable Cabs

    Hey folks, I'm planning (always dangerous!) for my eventual transition to using the Axe-FX as my sole rig and am quite intrigued by pole mounting the cab. I've got a set of PA speaker stands but they have quite a large footprint. I was wondering if anyone knew of a smaller version that lifts...

    My First Gig with the Axe-FX II

    As anyone who has read my other posts will know, I've had a troubling start with my Axe-FX journey. I love what I can get out of it at home - the calluses on my fingers are testament to that! At rehearsal though, both times I've come away really down in the dumps as I've not been sitting well in...

    Here They Come!!

    G66 really went out of their way here for me. I'd put myself on the wait list as soon as my Axe-FX arrived about 4 weeks ago. When Sussi emailed earlier in the week to say they were due in this week, I asked if I could pay for expedited delivery so that it would be here in time for my gig...

    Starting To Understand The EQ a bit more

    I've been meaning to do this for ages, but I finally got round to recording myself along with a guitar backing track for "Rio" by Duran Duran. I know this song really well as it's a staple with my band Total80s. I downloaded the track from Free Guitar Backing Tracks @ GuitarBackingTrack.com...

    Fun with the "Nuclear Tone" preset

    I'm still at the very early stages of discovery with the Axe-FX and I'm still spinning through the presets and trying things out. This evening I stumbled upon the "Nuclear Tone" preset and this massive grin spread across my face, so much so that I wanted to grab what it sounded like. My...

    FoH in Stereo, Monitor in Mono - How do you do it?

    My stated goal with the Axe-FX has been to massively condense my rig down to little more than the Axe-FX and some form of monitoring. Right now, I'm using the Matrix equipment and thoroughly enjoying it. I've got a GT1000FX and two CFR12's so that I can play at home in stereo and also, venue...

    Matrix CFR12's Do Fit In The Car Boot

    I realised that the post I put up last week was in the wrong place and so I've popped another copy of the picture in here, where it belongs. I was convinced that two CFR12's would fit in my car boot and I wasn't wrong: As you can see, almost made to measure! Plus, plenty of space for a rack...

    Would you mind critiquing this for me?

    Hey Guys, This is my first ever recording, so be gentle. After my "crisis in confidence" thread, I wanted to do a quick recording of a patch that I quite like. The playing is lousy, but that's not what this is about, in that I was hoping to maybe get some pointers on whether I'm on the right...

    Matrix CFR12s do fit in the car boot!

    I was convinced that I could get two of the Matrix CFR12 cabs in the boot of the car, together with a rackbag containing the Axe-FX and the GT1000FX and I wasn't wrong! Plenty of room for a pedalboard and a few other bits and pieces too I'd imagine. This is just a normal mid-sized family...

    I'm having a little crisis in confidence...

    Evening folks, I have been loving every second with my Axe-FX since it arrived just before Easter weekend and have played pretty much at every available opportunity. At home I get some truly inspiring sounds, be they clean or dirty - I'm either noodling away or playing along with something...

    I Can't Put My Guitar Down

    I'm sure there's no way that I'm alone in this, but since I got my Axe-FX a week ago, I just cannot stop playing. I'm finding that I am just so inspired by what I'm hearing, and I haven't really wavered from the presets yet. I followed a couple of Scott P's recommendations on one clean patch I...

    Looking for a rack bag in the EU? Your search could be over...

    I've spent ages researching just about everything there was to research before finally ordering the Axe-FX last week (seems my timing was spot on too!), but one thing that I didn't really bother with was how I was going to rack it. I'd just assumed that either I could use one of my old racks or...

    My Matrix Gear Arrived This Morning!

    I've been looking forward to today all Easter weekend and even more so after band practice Monday night. As a quick précis, I took my Axe-FX and Mackie SRM450 to practice and, as expected, the SRM450 wasn't great; far too buzzy on the high end and far too boomy on the low end. I wasn't really...

    Axe-FX as a "soundcard" in Windows 8

    Hi Folks, I'm trying to use my Axe-FX II as a "soundcard" within Windows 8, i.e. sounds on my PC are output through the Axe-FX. I've got the drivers installed okay and everything shows up properly, however... When I try and play something back through a media player, it plays for a few...

    Well, that might have just sealed the deal...

    My Axe-FX arrived on Thursday and, as much as I've been enjoying it, I've been in two minds about whether to keep it or not as my "traditional" guitar rig is so good. I've just got in from a gig where we had to play whisper quiet, so quiet in fact that the amp couldn't get going and I felt that...

    Axe-FX II and Mackie SRM450s

    Hi All, I'm looking for some advice and guidance regarding monitoring/backline for the Axe-FX II. I have an original pair of Mackie SRM450s which I bought some time ago now to use with a modeller way back when. The modeller is no more, but I kept the Mackies for when the band needs just a vocal...
