    Screen flickering (USB not connected)

    Hi, a few days ago i noticed my axe-fx screen flickering (ive had the unit for a couple of months and this is the 1st time it started doing this). I did a search and saw that this can be normal with the usb connected. I disconnected the usb cable from my PC but the screen still flickers...

    Hey, im a diy type of guy and have built guitar cabs in the past. I noticed that B&C (company that makes the driver for the new Matrix GFR12 FRFR) has a "suggested design" build plan for the B&C 12HCX76 on their website: http://www.bcspeakers.com/PDF/SUGG/SGG_11.pdf The driver is...

    Daydreaming: A possible way to have Axe-fx2 amp sims on the Ultra

    I wrote this in another thread and decided to start a dedicated one just to get some responses: Cliff said (i think) that an amp block in the axefx 2 code would take up 40% of cpu of one tigersharc processor (ultra has 1.... AxefxII has 2) I am a sparse effect user and never use 2 amp sims at...

    Axe-fx into Mesa Mark V front input (impedance question)

    Hi, Ive been using the axe-fx for effects only. In the loop of my Mesa Mark V i still hear a sound difference with all shunts on the axe-fx but it is something i can live with. My big problem is that I was excited to use the axe-fx in front of my amp as well to utilize the drive blocks, wah's...

    Do you want mix control for mic sims?

    Ive often felt the need to brighten up my patches or give it a different character by using the mic sims. Adding say an sm57 on some cabs just puts it over the top and I found myself wishing that I could dial the mic sim in with a mix control. Same goes for the Royer 121..... What if you want...

    Presence defaults to real world noon equivalent.

    I think this would be a better starting point for new axe-fx'ers if they intend to match their current rigs or amps they've owned in the past. Im suggesting axe-fx amp models who's real world counterparts have presence controls, default to 5 which would be equivalent to noon on a real amp and...

    Tell me about the VHT 2150...

    Hey guys. Ive been using an Art sla-2 SS amp with my axe-fx and Im getting tired of the unnatural fizz it has compared to for instance a marshall 9200. I have an opportunity to buy a VHT 2150. But i have no experience with kt88's. I cant try the power amp before buying it. Im also looking...

    Hi, If i get an in ear setup but the transmitter does not have 2 seperate inputs ( i want a direct send from the axe-fx to the in ear transmitter, together with the normal iem mix) would it be as easy as using one or 2 of these: (Y-Cable 1/4" (M) Mono to Dual 1/4" (F) Mono)...

    FCB1010 only switches patches up to 69

    Hey, I was at band practise tonight and for the 1st time tried to use a patch higher than 69. Pressing the buttons on the fcb1010 didnt do anything at all from patch 70 and up. The "midi in" light on the axe-fx was flashing each time i hit a button but it didnt change the patches. When i bought...
