    Massive Squealing Volume Jump With Empty Cab Block

    I had this happen while dialing in a preset at rehearsal volume levels using Cab-Manage when I selected an empty slot instead of the IR I meant to choose. It was an incredibly unpleasant experience.

    Preset Inspired by George Lynch

    I don't think I've posted here in years, but I wanted to say thanks for this. I've been creating Lynch patches since the days of the original Axe Fx Standard, and I've read that Micheal Wagner post a zillion times, but this seems to capture something I've never quite nailed. Thanks!

    Fremen Quantum 2.0 presets

    Doh! Sorry, I saw the word "mix" and assumed it was your mix, despite the fact I have all the Ownhammer cabs and should have realized that. I forgot all about the Ownhammer Mix folders.

    Preset conversion tool

    How about something like the old 3rd party AxeReporter program? If we were able to even generate a spreadsheet and then manually input the block parameters, we'd get a pretty close facsimile of the patch, parameters only available on newer models notwithstanding. Or even a version of Axe-Edit...

    Question Regarding USA Lead amps

    Cliff, from the above I gathered the Pull Bright is baked into the modeling of the two models that have the Pull bright on, but on the USA Lead Brt, the bright switch is off by default, and on the USA Lead Bright+ the bright switch is on by default. Does the bright switch on these models...

    Question Regarding USA Lead amps

    Ah, thanks. It turns out using the USA LD 2 YLW (or any of the TriAxis models) it appears in the front panel only, but for the MKIV based USA Lead models it does appear in Axe-Edit as well as you stated.

    You have to use the front panel to see it, it's not an option in Axe-Edit.

    I closed down everything and then re-opened CabLab only and tried several presets as well, but the problem still persists. I'll keep trying things and see if I can get it working.

    Anybody Else Having Big Latency Problems in Live Mode?

    Cliff, that's not happening for me. I have to manually disable the cab block in either AxeEdit or via the front panel.
  20. Z

    Live Mode vs None

    The only issue I've found with having both CabLab and AxeEdit open at that same time is that if you use CabLab to save to a user spot it won't actually save it, though the process completes as if it worked. If I shut down AxeEdit, CabLab saves it to the selected spot without an issue.

    G3 FW18 mini review

    Given that you find the Axe easy to dial in at low levels, this most likely has nothing to do with needing to adjust the advanced parameters (they are completely unnecessary to get a great tone) and more to do with the Fletcher Munson effect.

    Iron Miaden - Somewhere in Time

    Sound great, thanks for the patch. I always learn something from dissecting other people's patches, especially in cases like this where it's a tone I'm very familiar with. It allows me to look at it and say, "ahh, that's what my version was missing".

    Scratch Pad??? I don't see it

    Yeah, using AOM to just download the IR to the Cab Slot and audition that way is much easier than actually using the Audtion button, which requires all the jumping through hoops. I hope the next version of AE also supports IR mixing.

    Scratch Pad??? I don't see it

    Yes. It appears that not only do you need to build new patches, but you need to use Axe Edit to actually delete all the blocks as I described in the post.

    Thanks, Cliff. Either way the addition of more IR's is appreciated. I guess the advantage of having them in the firmware would be that it makes it easier to audition, as opposed to downloading and auditioning. But I don't think most of us will be bothered if they are offered as download only.

    High pitched "ping" sound when playing loud
