    Is the II Leaps and Bounds Beyond the Standard?

    I do mostly gravitate more towards the higher gain stuff and switch between the Uberschall, Orange, Shiva Lead and lately the Soldano X99 has been my go to. When I direct record, I really do favor the 4x12 cab with V30.

    Is the II Leaps and Bounds Beyond the Standard?

    I've had my Standard since '08 and it still blows me away for direct record purposes and I like using it live as well. I've been eyeing the II but other than some of the nice upgraded features like assignable control knobs, bigger screen, headphone jack, USB, ethercon connection with MFC, etc...

    How many ditched their "real" wah for the Axe Fx's?

    Been through many a wah pedal and never was satisfied with any until I got the ZVex Wah Probe. Unconventional in it's methodology but once you got used to the sensor plate vice having a typical wah treadle, it was the best wah for me........ I know longer have it, the Axe wah is the shizznit.

    Not Looking 2 Start Trouble, Time 2 Give Up Hope on Email?

    Believe me I'm not trying to incite a riot, start a new "bash Fractal's business tactics" thread or look for Cliff's wrath, I just have an honest question. Is it time to just abandon hope on receiving "the" email anytime soon and put an MFC-101 in my shopping cart and be done with it? I check...

    So I Finally Tried Out the Citrus - YUMMY!!!!

    I gave the Citrus model a whirl finally last night and I'm in love. Not that I've owned an Orange amp before, I had something kind of similar when I had a Matamp 1224 a few years ago, to compare to but hot damn I love it. Flipped to the neck position on my JP, rolled the tone all the way off...

    Atomic Mono Block Amp Vice QSC GX3?

    All, I currently have a QSC GX3 power amp I use with a Mesa Recto 2x12 with my Axe. The setup works well for me but I'm wondering if an Atomic Mono Block would sound even better? I'm not getting any stereo benefit with my current setup, my Axe is outputting in mono since I only have the one...

    Who Carries Their GCP in Their Rack?

I want to be able to transport my GCP in my rack with my Axe along with my expression pedal instead...

    Simultaneous AXE-FX editing and Ground Control Pro

    Yeah, I was fantasizing I guess!! :) Seriously though, still looks like a cool idea so that you could leave the GCP connected to the Axe and still be able to hook the Axe into the PC to edit, gets annoying to have to disconnect the GCP everytime I want to hook my Axe up to the editor.

    Simultaneous AXE-FX editing and Ground Control Pro

    Will this setup automatically edit the GCP based upon changes being made in the Axe like a quasi two-way communication like you would get with the Liquid Foot or upcoming MFC?

    Roll call: Who's Using Mission SP-2 for Both Wah and Volume

    Think I might jump on the Mission bandwagon and get an SP-2 so I can do volume and wah with the same pedal. I can either retire my Hex or use it for like whammy or continuous gain or delay time control or something.

    Instead of Using an A/B Box, Can I Do This Instead....

    Haven't gotten the GC Pro setup yet but that chain worked like a champ!!!! Thanks so much. Still need to get a balanced cable to go from Axe to QSC but man oh man just awesome. Of course, I think I need more IA switches, I'm tapped out!!! When is the Axe controller gonna hit???? ;)

    Here's how far I got: I realized, unless I'm doing something wrong, that you can't specifically assign one chain to output 1 and a separate chain to output 2. Like I said, if I blew it here, please let me know. What I did do was go into I/O and copy output 1 to output 2. I then ran output 1...

    Any A/B Type Switch to Avoid with the Axe?

    Questions about the 5150 MODEL

    Floor controllers: which one????

    I have the Ground Control Pro and it's serving me well. Of course, whenever the MFC hits the streets, I'm probably going to jump on it to take advantage of the tuner display and two way communication, something you don't get with any of the midi controllers except for the Liquid Foot. The...

    Petrucci using Axe-FX?

    Can U Do the 4 Cable Method AND Send an Output to Mixer?

    Yes, mono with my Bogner, stereo when going PA or direct. When I go PA/direct record, I'd have cab sims added, the FX loop block shunted out and use an amp sim. When I run 4 cable with the Bogner, I hardly ever use an amp sim, the Axe is used for preamp and post amp effects.

    Can U Do the 4 Cable Method AND Send an Output to Mixer?

    Ideally I'd like to be able to maintain the 4 cable method connections I currently have with my Bogner Duende and also be able to connect to a mixer/or PC at the same time for direct record. It's not that I want to be able to use the 4 cable method and direct out capability at the same time, I...

    Can U Do the 4 Cable Method AND Send an Output to Mixer?

    Actually, the more I look at the diagram for the four cable method, I think if I want to make this work, it's actually Output 2 I need to work with since Output 1 and Input 2 are acting as the FX loop for the Axe, bringing my amp into it so I guess the Digital out jack won't help me at all. I...
  66. J

    Can U Do the 4 Cable Method AND Send an Output to Mixer?

    Thanks mik. I think I may actually just have to bite the bullet and try it, I'm thinking as long as plugging into SPDIF out doesn't automatically disable Output 1 (as plugging into the digital in disables Input 1 and the FX loop I believe) I might be able to accomplish what I'm looking to do.
  67. J

    Can U Do the 4 Cable Method AND Send an Output to Mixer?

    anyone? all I can ascertain from the owners manual is that the digital out provides a digital version of Output 1, it doesn't say anything about defeating Output 1. Does this mean that I theoretically could have both the analog output 1 and digital output connected at the same time? This...

    Can U Do the 4 Cable Method AND Send an Output to Mixer?

    I saw a post where you could do a modified 4 cable method where Output 1 ended up going to FOH.

It probably sounds stupid but I'd like to be able...
