    Axe-Fx 3 worth to use only for bass?

    Axe-Fx 3 worth to use only for bass?

    I´ll check it out. From what I had researched, the Axe3 is a really great piece of unit for bass. When I had the Axe2, I was dissapointed with the unit so I went to other ones. Let´s see the near future, axe 3 for me is in the radar again :hearteyes::hearteyes:

    Axe-Fx 3 worth to use only for bass?

    I had Axe FX 2 a long time ago. Sold it and went to Kemper, that has a lack of effects and if you don´t get the correct amp profiler, it will suck the hell balls. So I sold it too and went to the Helix. It is a good unit for bass use only. Nowadays with Axe Fx3 and the FM3, to use only for bass...

    New (?) source of bass cab IRs

    If FAS made a update on the bass amp blocks... with a "real" ampeg svt options, orange ad200 and the other ones that are available... that would close all that complains on NO LOVE for bass... Yes... some effect updates for the low end too (distortions, wah and modulations)... :D:rolleyes:

    The problem is the wah is that has a lack of low end (for bass).... To compensate that i have to use an EQ block just to add the low frequencies... If already has a bass wah type would be a free block for me in the rig (the EQ block)

    Bass Mud Distorted

    For example: If you use the Axe Edit or directly on the AxeFX and insert the SV Bass Amp Block. The "factory configuration" there's nothing near the ampeg svt classic tone. Many people have to use another EQ block or on the other EQ sections from the SV Bass Amp Block to come close to a descent...

    Bass Mud Distorted

    I think that: If you have to use EQ, PEQ blocks. Whatever kind of EQ to try to come close to the real SVT... Is no god. So why you have a "svt" amp block that is supposed to come close to the real thing and you have to use "external" kind of EQ to come close? Doesn't make sense...

    Bass Mud Distorted

    Yes. I tried to use AxeFX (amps/cabs) for bass mainly live. No good. Not really close to an ampeg svt classic sound. That's why i got the Fx-8 for effects. But again need some tweaking but the effects are fine. There's no love for bass. You can only get those "djent new metal" tones that for...

    Not happy with CPU room

    I can't see I firmware update to solve the cpu lower capacity... I think that we will all have to handle it the way it is or go back do the AxeFXII. The mainly reason I purchased the Fx8 was to use just a pedalboard and not a rack case. Well let's see the future... :pride:

    Not happy with CPU room

    Yes cpu power is an issue. I have a "simple preset", had to change because the cpu power.. Was: 2 drive blocks, 2 wah (one like crbaby and the other auto-wah, because in the X/Y function you can't do that in only one block), 1 phaser, 1 chorus, 1 reverb (on normal) and tried to use a pitch...

    the correct effects order...

    Yes the EQ block and the Compressor for me it's useless. As said here, there several EQ points in the fX8 and on my amp has EQ and compression (bass amp). I don't use the 4cm. My chain is all in PRE. Played last saturday with the Fx8 in a gig and I think that I still needs a lot of tweeking on...
  75. F

    the correct effects order...

    Yes I tried the Wah after the drive and for me sucked a little bit... hahaha I'll taste the modulation effects (all of) after the wah/drive and before delay/reverb.. And for a next gig will see the EQ blocks in the end. Have no time to try the EQ for now :encouragement:
  76. F

    the correct effects order...

    All the effects on PRE. What would be the correct chain order? Wah -> Drive -> Chorus -> Phaser -> Flanger -> Delay -> Reverb ??? Were I would put the Pitch, Tremolo, Rotary, Rig Modulator, Compressor, Enhancer and the EQ blocks on this chain??? :eek-new:
