    Austin Live Gold Pack Bug?

    I had the same/similar problem with my spring loaded EP-1. The AB pack is designed for toe down/off non-spring wahs. I had to go into each preset and change the wah OFF VALUE from 95 to 5 and put on the auto engage (and re-save). Works fine now and kicks on when I step on the pedal and turns off...

    Fixed FW1.05 - changing presets

    I've been mostly using my AxeFx3 at home but now that things are looking up (and out!), I started messing around with my FM3. Just scrolling thru the presets seems to give me this pop up error. I'm not editing anything nor even connected to my Mac. Just going from preset to preset using the <...

    NGD Solar S1.6ET LTD FSBM

    I'm a Les Paul/SC guy too. I just picked up a Solar GC1.6TBR with an evertune bridge. Really a nice guitar for the money. The stainless steel frets are a joy to bend. Still bonding with the Duncan Solars.

    FM3 headphones jack

    In small joints where there's no space for monitors and I'm not using my wireless IEMs, I have found this jump audio dual cable to be beneficial in eliminating the extra IEM cable. http://www.jumpaudio.net/ixmcablesetup.html I usually run an aux out return from the board to get a good band mix...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.00 Beta #3

    I concur that whatever you did in 5.0, the feel and playability is amazing! PLEASE PLEASE update it for my AX8!! I know... "soon". :(

    Anyone using a piezo-equipped guitar? What amp model?

    Does anyone have a quick 2 in/2 out preset for piezo and electric? I need to cover 2 parts this evening. TIA!

    Talk to me about pickups

    Agree with Firesource and others, it does make a difference. Like IRs and amps, pickups can sort of be addictive. You 'can' have it if you want (or want to pay!). I found most of my pickup changes have been due in part, to me either loving the feel of a guitar/neck profile/has the switching...

    Your AX8 "DOOHHHH" moment(s)

    After a recent FW and amp model switch, during our live set, stepped on a scene for my awesome searing Chili Peppers lead only to get a quiet clean sound... and no wah (You look pretty funny stomping on a wah/expression pedal and nothing's happening...poser!). Bass player turns to me and...

    [Moke's Custom Presets] 'AX8' Thread - Updated to Q9.04/10.01 -New presets, Videos, Huge Discounts

    I'm voting for #1. Adjust all the current AX8 presets with their own mean to clean. I skipped a generation so I only have an Ultra so I don't need/care with what the II has or can do. I don't need to match 'em and think moving forward, they will (?) diverge more over time. I realize #2 is...

    Smallest Power Supply for AX8 + Shure GLXD16

    Not many power supplies have an IEC outlet to plug your AX8 in directly as well as 250mA. I use the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2 plus. I have the same setup AX8/GLXD16 with a few more pedals (Mission Engineering Expression Pedal and a EH B9) on my Temple board. It fits underneath fine and is a...

    Let's Talk Cover Band Setups!

    Because we vary so much with our song list (bands are a democracy right? EVERYONE gets to choose the songs!!!), I use the one patch per song approach. Each patch typically has a clean, rhythm, lead, special/other. (switches 1-4 are scenes; 5-8 stop boxes/looper). Using Set List Maker and...

    Kemper on the Way

    I live on Long Island [home of the cold cheese slice!] and have been to Gino's East (as well as Lou Malnatis') and consider Chicago pizza more like an open face pot pie than a pizza pie. Don't get it twisted, it's tasty and awesome and love the full slab of sausage approach (instead of the NY...

    Kemper on the Way

    I have an AxeFx Ultra, a Kemper rack and the AX8. They all have their benefits and nuances and I'm a fanboy of them all. If you get a great profile for the Kemper it's awesome. As you start to tweak it like a traditional amp (adjust drive/pre-, treble, bass, presence, etc), it starts to get a...

    Working on my IEM mix...making strides!

    What are you using for IEMs? They make a huge difference and I'm still sampling IEMs to find the best balance. Most IEMs I've used thus far have been good at spreading the sound stage to hear bass and vocals but agree, the guitar tones are less than inspiring. Clearly, you don't get the amp in...

    Rolls PM50s: useful device for monitoring

    I use the jump audio system http://www.jumpaudio.net/ixm.html Sort of combines the Rolls and the 2 into 1 wire cable. It's pretty stable and I've definitely had a few head yanks when the wire ran out and no issues. I use it as a backup to my wireless IEMs and can run a direct out from my X32...

    Matrix GT1000FX-1U VS GT1000FX-2U

    While I liked the size of the 1U, I returned it and got the 2U with silent fan. The 1U is noisy enough to be heard if you do any bedroom/home playing. I was hopeful it would be more "PC" fan like but its definitely louder and noticeable. If your a solo player in a coffee house, go 2U. If you're...

    Alternative to the old Mission SP2, dual function exp-pedal?

    Check out Paranoid's post: http://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/double-expression-from-my-sp-1-mission.109364/ I have not actually done the mod yet but if you just want one pedal and are OK with only having a volume or a wah in each preset, I think could suit your needs. As he mentions, the...

    Mission engineering expression pedal and AX8

    Checkout Paranoid's post: http://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/double-expression-from-my-sp-1-mission.109364/ I'm planning to do the mod on my SP-1. The SP-1 currently is stock that the toe switch just turns on/off a function. With the mod, the only issue is possibly the reverse aspect after...

    Digital backing track MIDI controlled

    Setting up footswitches?

    A pedal to control my pedal?! ;) I was trying to reduce luggage by switching to the "all in one" AX8! Maybe I need to check out Set List Maker. Seems more elegant "clicking directly on a song" versus 0-128 patch and bank up/down midi pedal system. I'm usually toting around my iPad to gigs...

    Setting up footswitches?

    Download the free Ax8-edit software from the Support/Utilities tab from the fractal website and setup your switches using the software. You can set specific switches as "global" or assign each switch differently for every patch, X/Y option and/or scene. I found it much easier than trying to...

    Setting up footswitches?

    As we are all "just getting in to the AX8", I too would like some forum feedback on how people are setting up their switches. I've used the FCB1010 with my Ultra in the past so it's pretty tame (stomps on top/patches on bottom) but with looping capabilities, X/Y options (limited CPU), how are...

    Looking for a compact wired IEM setup

    Gotcha. I bought the Jamhub "way back then" when things like the X16/18R weren't available on the market. I think that was like "only" like ~1 1/2 years ago. [BTW - is my 386 processor PC still cutting edge? ;) ] Things change so quickly these days! It's great having everyone just using their...

    Looking for a compact wired IEM setup

    None of the "accessories" is unique... Only the SoleMix remotes and the extension cable for it are unique/specific and those are just for convenience to have the individual personal mixing controls in front of you instead of going back to the base. All other wires are the standard XLR and 1/4"...

    Looking for a compact wired IEM setup

    Overall yes. Obviously having decent IEMs are more of a factor but also, works so far as my limited situation... For the Jamhub, no issues with noise (other than the jamhub being a bit noisy itself. No Midas preamps there!). Practice weekly with it and set it up/take it down each and every...

    Looking for a compact wired IEM setup

    I also concur and recommend the Jamhub. Best thing we found for rehearsing and each person getting their own personal headphone mix. Allows us to practice almost anywhere at any time. My only gripe is the need for the extra SoleMix units and Solemix extension cords. Otherwise it's like huddling...

    prs guitars. where to start ?

    I have 4x PRS guitars and love them all. They all have their own thing and they're not really Fender/Gibson clones per say, but a different interpretation of a strat/single cut. My S2 Semi hollow SC feels solid and is quality made in terms of fit an finish. Generally, like any guitar, there's...

    Just bought Axe-Fx Ultra - Need Help

    Hi, newbie Ultra owner (and first post) here who did end up going with a pair of HS80's for bedroom volume/recording. I thought these sounded the most natural of the speakers I auditioned (the others Rokit 8s, JBL2328P). Running them directly via XLR connectors in stereo, with cab sims on. For...
