    Convert 44.1K Impulse Response to 48K

How do I do this? I'm using a Mac. Thanks! Edit: I imported the file into Logic(44.1k project), then converted...

    Drive Block set itself to FAT RAT

    I was recording and stopped to tuned my guitar, pressing bypass and tuner. When I went to start recording again I noticed my tone was now full of hiss and feedback. I had a TS808 selected but the drive block set itself to a FAT RAT with some very strange High Cut settings. I'm using the...

    Crazy noises using USB as output device on iMac

    I'm using my Axe-Fx II as the output device for my iMac. Periodically when I'm using iTunes or Logic Pro everything turns to complete noise full of hissing and screeching. Turning the Axe-Fx II on and off fixes it but its a very strange bug. Is it a problem with Apple or my Axe-fx. I'll...

    Dialling in a hi-gain lead tone for recording/studio

    Hey guys! I'm having trouble dialling in a hi-gain lead that sits in a mix. I made 4-5 patches last night that sounded great when playing but when I tried to record a solo section in one of my songs they just sounded horrible. It sounded like I was playing over the mix rather than the tone...

    Axe-Fx II repeatedly locking up on FW11 [SOLVED]

    Every time I click layout and try to edit one the parameters it locks up. The only solution is to turn it on and off again. Whats wrong? Update: The new midi driver for Mac seems to be the cause. As soon as I connect my Axe-fx to my iMac it looks up.

    Getting feedback when using preamp via effects loop

    I tried to use my Engl E530 with my Axe-Fx 2 and I got crazy feedback from it. I'm guessing I had it connected wrong but here are the ports on the back of the ENGL and Axe-fx. Can someone tell me exactly what I'm meant to do to use it in the middle of the chain like this? The ENGL has...

    Born of Osiris - M∆CHINE/Machine Sweep Arpeggio Cover

    My guitar is a Schecter Custom Shop 7 with a Bareknuckle Emerald in the neck. I'm using the Silent Underground IRs and I think the Diezel Herbert Ch3 model. Axe-Edit wasn't playing nice as usual so I lost the patch after recording. The Silent Underground IRs are really good for hi-gain leads.

    The Reaver - 7 String Metal with FW 10

    Schecter C-7 Hellraiser - Metal - YouTube Firmware 10 is amazing! Palm mutes sound really dynamic and have a really nice chunk sound to them. Its also much easier now to get a good tone. Before I used to cut some of the bass to tighten up the low end before hitting the tubescreamer/overdrive...

    Axe-fx II - Melodic Death Metal - FW9

    Original metal clip in D standard trying out Firmware 9 on the Axe-Fx 2. The improvement in palm mutes and dynamics is crazy.

    Chelsea Grin - Shred Guitar Solo

    Using the Fas Modern amp for tone. Not really a good representation of the Axe-Fx 2 but I would never have been able to play this kind of shred with regular amp sims. They never responded right and always had a slight latency/lag. Enjoy!

    NGD - Home Made Desk for Axe-Fx

    I wanted a workstation desk but didn't want to pay €1000+ so I decided to make my own for a fraction of the cost. Not exactly "Home made" but using sets and boards from Ikea my mate was able to put this together in a few hours with a few screws/glue and only sawing up 3 of the boards. I'm amazed...
