    SOLD Fractal EV-2 expression pedals (x2), Dallas, TX $195 shipped

    I'm selling two mint Fractal EV-2 expression pedals (black) with free shipping CONUS. I ended up just going back to my old Mission SP-1 and it works fine. They both lived in my smoke free studio and have seen virtually no use.

    FC-6 Preset selection in bank will only display and select preset 0

    Actually, this is what happens when you have the MAPPING function turned on and don't realize it. Hope this helps anyone else with the same issue.

    FC-6 Preset selection in bank will only display and select preset 0

    I'm trying to set one of my layout screens on the FC-6 to select specific presets in a bank. I have the Bank Size set for five, and have five presets in the bank set up with Select by #. No matter what number I put in there, I only get the first preset on the Axe either via the FC6 or in the...

    FracTool - ultimate multitool for FAS devices

    After downloading the latest update (Ver 3.38) and using with Axe Edit III version 1.03.10, I cannot get any presets to send to the Axe III. The preset just shows all blank blocks, irrespective of what preset I'm trying to send (XL+, AX8, etc). Any workaround for this?

    SOLD Fractal FC-12, Free Shipping (Dallas, TX), $600

    I'm currently using an FC-12 with my Fractal AXE III. I'm so happy with my overall sound that I'm using far fewer presets these days and have "right-sized" to an FC-6. My FC-12 has lived in my studio and only has a little scuff on one of the rubber side pieces (though I did commit the sacrilege...

    Attempting to create a global Reverb bypass switch

    I've been experimenting with various iterations of applying a modifier and control switch to bypass all the reverb blocks on my FC-12. I used delay on almost every preset, so when playing live (especially outside) I find reverb unnecessary. Modifying every preset or deleting the reverb blocks...

    FC6/12 "Save" function?

    Thanks. I guess a [WISH] for me would be for a 0 option so it can just be used as a SAVE without having to press, then press and hold.

    FC6/12 "Save" function?

    Using various different controllers with my AXE II's, I always had the SAVE PRESET command set-up, i.e. a MIDI CC volume increase (cc35) followed immediately by a volume decrease (cc36) which effectively saved the current status of my preset in the Axe. Mostly I used this to save which scene I...

    Move II presets to III?

    I would definitely contribute some funds to move this along. While I'm enjoying re-working some of my main presets and innovating/updating sounds, having a basic point of reference for the 50 plus presets I frequently use would be a major time-saver.

    AxeFX II XL+ in stock.......whooops out of stock???

    Thanks, that gives me a better indication of when I may be able to get one. Thankfully, the Ax8 is handling my needs at the moment so I'm not in the situation I was when I sold the AxeII and was using a Tech21 FlyRig for some unexpected performances.

    Listed as out of stock again. Anyone know when they'll be back? I'm going to unload my Ax8 and go back to the big box, having sold my Axe 2 to be more 'portable.' No dissatisfaction with the AX8 per se,I just use my Fractal almost exclusively so I may as well go big. Plus I really miss the...

    I was using my AX8 at rehearsal today and wanted to add the looper to an existing preset. I insert it from the panel and when I try to play, the looper will not come out of Bypass. I tried assigning it to a footswitch, to one of the three function switches, and clearing bypass from the panel...

    PEQ recommendation for muddy hollowbody sound

    I tried all of the above, with some positive results although the guitar still just seems way too flubby and without definition. I'm starting to think its the pickups. The 57/08 pickups appear to be the culrpit, especially when the model is normally very bright and chimey (Matchless, Vox)...

    PEQ recommendation for muddy hollowbody sound

    I've got my AX8 sounding pretty good on my standard presets. I normally use a Suhr Standard or Modern with a DSH+ in the bridge. When I switch to my PRS Hollowbody II, the bass on most of my settings gets very flubby and almost sounds distorted. While I acknowledge its a pretty broad...

    Need a few Axe FX 2 presets converted to AX8 format

    If it isn't hijacking the thread, I have a couple presets that I really need converted (already sold my AXE II). They are my main presets and the Landau one does use the Quad Chorus so I imagine that block can't be changed over. Thanks in advance if you can do it.

    What's your Preference, Presets....by "tone" or by "song"?

    I tend to go by tone, and then secondarily by amp characteristic. Having some ability to tweak on the fly, such as using IA's to turn off delay and such is a big part of my setup as well. I plan to set each preset up with an Scene A/B sound using the X/Y options. The top row in CAPS is the...

    All good points. Even if I ordered it today I won't get it in time for my shows next week (leaving home on Friday), and that's ok. No griping here. Perusing the manual and trying to figure out if the setup I want to use will keep me occupied. Speaking of which...if anyone cares to chime in...

    AX8 Magnetic KickTags Glow Labels - follow their development here!

    Can't wait to get a set...once I actually get an AX8. I made it on the waitlist in the first couple of hours but who knows what that means.
  61. Surefire641

    Third gig with the AX8. Awesome!

    Your tone and versatility is the reason I switched to an AXE II years ago, and am anxiously awaiting an AX8 once the units roll out. I still base most of my presets off of one of yours :-)
  62. Surefire641

    How Will AX8 Take Advantage of Prior Presets? Or Starting From Scratch?

    Backed up all my presets...but already sold my AXE II anticipating this unit being released. Bang head here... Anyone want to sketch out/screenshot my three fav presets in exchange for eternal gratuity?
  63. Surefire641

    So when is the waitlist open!

    Good call, I was in full-Fractal-fan-boy-freakout and didn't notice that.
  64. Surefire641

    So when is the waitlist open!

    Made it at 5:35 PST as well. Just my luck being on travel today. Nice they give you an instant confirmed receipt though. Very excited about this one. I wonder if it will be Axe-Edit compatible, as the product page doesn't mention it.
  65. Surefire641

    So when is the waitlist open!

    I'm in the same boat, mostly of my own doing because I already sold my Axe II to someone who was really wanting one. If I don't pick up an Ax8 by December, I have a serious logistic problem I should have considered :-/
  66. Surefire641

    So when is the waitlist open!

    I probably screwed up selling my AXE II recently. I have four shows in December, and the Axe is my live rig. With the stated October ship date I assumed I'd be able to pick up an Ax8 by then, but if the comments above r/e the waitlist and it taking a few months are accurate, I'm in trouble.

    AX-8 Price

    I have dealt with many different companies in regard to musical instruments and related products. I can honestly say FAS has been the best experience, along with RJM controllers, of any company I have encountered. Great customer service, top shelf product, and killer support after the sale.
  68. Surefire641

    AX-8 Price

    The only worry I have is missing the wait list, since I just sold my Axe FX II. Can't wait to pull the trigger on this unit, it is exactly what I've been looking for.
  69. Surefire641

    AX-8 Price

    Take my money...take it now. This is going to simplify my travel/gig-rig so much, and at an even lower price point than expected!!!! Can't wait for the wait list...of waiting.

    Dominic Miller - Why Should I Cry for You

    I've made some improvements in my tone-shaping, many thanks to insight from this board. I used to have a great clean patch from my old Boss GT-10 that I'm certain my AXE II can handle, but I'm just not able to pull it off. It was very close to the sound Dominic Miller got on Why Should I Cry...

    Is it possible to use a single pedal for volume/wah using Output 1 method?

    I use the I/O section on my AxeFX2 to control volume for Output 1 via a Mission Engineering expression pedal and the MFC-101. This controls the volume just fine, but I'd like to also use the same pedal as a wah controller. I know this can be done using a volume block in the signal chain and...
