    JBL 305P MkII vs KRK Rokit 5 G3

    Studio Monitors question: I am seeing a pretty good cyber price for either the JBL 305P MkII or the KRK Rokit 5 G3 Active Studio Monitors at Pro Audio Star. Any thoughts or advice on which way to go? Or any other options in the <$100 range and link to a cyber Monday or Black Friday

    Wireless guitar recommendations

    Thanks for the suggestions thus far. At this point I am debating within myself between the Carvin WG5 and the Nux B5RC. I like the simplicity of this format. Any thoughts on the differences? The big one is the 2.4 vs 5.8 operating band. Is that significant either way? Welcome any comments on...

    Wireless guitar recommendations

    With Black Friday deals, I am interested in maybe going wireless on my guitar to AX8. Looking at ads, they run from $40 to $200 and probably way beyond that. I would prefer to stay under $100, but that may not be possible for quality. Any recommendations and/or warnings with reasons would be...

    New Fractal Products?

    Hi anyone here, I have an AX8 and have loved it. I have not been on this forum lately mostly cuz my AX8 works fine and yet it is discontinued so the discussion has tapered and I have had it long enough to know how to get around to make it do what I need. I love the fact of everything on one...

    Eventide H9 - changing patches with SCENES

    Ha, I got it. Figured out getting the Ch 1 to work. Now the only minor problem is if I plug in patch 42 in the AX8 it brings up 43 in the H9. One off. Surely there is one more simple setting I am missing........ yes?

    Eventide H9 - changing patches with SCENES

    I do have the midi cable connected as you ask; do I just need the one cable or do I need a cable to go back to the AX8?

    Integrating AX8 with other midi fx (H9)
