    First time with power amp and guitar cab

    Ever since I've owned my Axe-FX I've only ever played it through my RCF, which I do love. That said, I've been curious about using a power amp and guitar cab. I have a Hughes and Kettner 1x12 loaded with a a late '50s Jensen Alnico speaker with an oversized magnet (it's been hemp reconed, can...

    Any way to do this in the Axe-FX?

    I stumbled across this pedal (I have no affiliation with this company - never even heard of them till yesterday) that separate separate adjustable gain for bass, middle, and treble bands: http://vfepedals.com/triumvirate.html This looks extremely useful. Any way to do this in the Axe-FX?

    All 4ths (P4) tuning

    Tom Quayle tunes his guitar in all fourths (Perfect Fourth or P4 Tuning), and Stanley Jordan has done so for years. The clear advantages are that it makes the fretboard symmetrical and allows for more movable chords. I find this highly intriguing and am going to give this a shot, as I've been...

    Remove amp in Amp Block Y state?

    I feel like an idiot even asking this question, but I can't find an answer in the manual, Wiki, or anywhere else, so what the hell. The Y state of the amp block seems to have the '59 Bassman there by default. Is this by design, and if so is there any way to remove it so there's no amp at all in...

    Not So New Guitar Day

    2008 Ibanez AS103NT, $450 shipped w/case on Ebay. I've owned a ton of top-notch high-end guitars in my 40+ years of playing, and I'm telling you this is one of the best purchases I've ever made. Gorgeous flame and finish, high-quality build and attention to detail, plays like a dream and sounds...

    New Guitar Day - Ibanez AS103NT

    Haven't bought a new piece of gear since I got my Axe-FX II almost two years ago. However, the new guitar sickness is a powerful and almost irresistible force. I've always craved a proper hollow-body, but the ones I've wanted have always been just too big to be comfortable too play (i.e. a...

    Yours Is No Disgrace

    I'm working on a patch to reproduce Steve Howe's sound on the Yessongs (album and film) version of Yours Is No Disgrace (1972 tour). The main issue (other than his impeccable technique) is that I don't own an ES-175 but that can't be avoided. *LOL* His rig was really not all that complicated...

    Pykmax review

    For starters, I have no affiliation with this company - I just saw the product in another thread and decided to check it out. I've been playing for over 40 years, and while I subscribe to the notion there is no "correct" way to hold a pick, I do believe that some ways are more "efficient" than...

    Renaming Presets?

    So what I want to do is take a factory preset, change the amp and cabinet, and save it with a new name. I saved the preset as a snapshot in AE 3.0, and made the changes to the amp and cab. However, AE will not save the file to disk with the new name. Manually changing the file name didn't work...

    Maximum quackage

    If you're a single-coil Strat type guy looking for maximum quackage in positions 2 and 4, for me these Vox models can't be beat. I haven't tried the Morgan yet, but for clean in-between goodness these absolutely rule.

    LED indicators all screwed up on presets

    Hey guys. I've never changed any of the defaults on my MFC or Axe-FX II (10.02). The only thing I've done on the MFC is upgrade to firmware 2.16. I've downloaded some presets from the Exchange and loaded some of Fremen's new presets, that's it. I'm now just noticing that on my MFC that some...

    Missing Delay Block Conundrum

    I downloaded Tyler's "Tin Pan Alley" patch, which is absolutely fantastic. However, there's a mystery that neither he nor I can figure out. There's clearly a delay block in this patch, but it is not showing up as an IA switch on my MFC-101. All the others (rotary, reverb) are as they should be...

    Amp levels

    Just installed v.10 and all the new presets. I could have sworn I read here that all the amp levels had been set to -12db. Is that correct, and if so, where can I find this? Thanks.

    Version 9.02 banks

    Anyone have a link to the last set of factory preset banks before v.10? (9.02). I thought I had them on my PC, but I seem to have misplaced them. I never loaded them and want to make sure I have copy of them. Did a forum search but can't find them. Thanks.
