    Moving to an Axe-Fx II/MFC-101 setup from an AX8

    Hey everyone, So I used to have an Axe Fx II and traded for an AX8 awhile ago. I'm thinking of going to an Axe Fx II/MFC 101 setup from the AX8 as I'd like a bit more power in my scenes and the ability to run more effects. Is switching scenes on the Axe Fx II compared to the AX8 similar -...

    Rough mix of a track from my new band

    I used the Thordendal Modern and a free IR ;) for all the rhythm tracks in my AX8. Drums are a mix of a bunch of different Toontrack libraries. I also used some GGD on the kick as well.

    Djenthuggah Drum Demo

    Hey everyone, I made a demo using Djenthuggah Drums from ItMightGetLoud. I used my Squier Jim Root tele with a Duncan Custom TB-5 pickup in the bridge and I used the 5150 Block amp in my AX8 for all the rhythm guitar tones. I think i used a Vox model for the cleaner-ish parts. Unfortunately...

    Hey everyone, I've been trying to nail a good P&W tone lately with the Matchbox D-30 amp model. Usually at church I run through the actual amp and have a pedal board with me, but I'm hoping i can get away with just using the AX8 instead (Not to mention it will save my back from breaking!). I...
