    8 String with BKP Aftermaths

    New 8 string from Strictly 7 (ironic name I know).. great guitar Really happy with the Aftermath pickups - this is using the middle position (neck + bridge). I still find actives better for tone shaping using AxeFx or post-processing, but these pickups keep the sound nice and focused without...

    Hello, Here is another quick cover - used the AxeFx for the bass and the lead during the chorus. Pretty basic stuff, but not a bad sound. Still fiddling with the mix a bit. Cheers

    Levi Stubbs' Tears (Billy Bragg cover)

    Something lighter - I recently remastered an older cover that I recorded using the Axe and a nice vintage strat. Fairly basic Fender sim with slight post production EQ and comp. As my drummer was away, this was my first drumming effort as well.. haha

    MFC expansion?

    What a great midi controller. I am loving the MFC so far and have found it to have very powerful capabilities. Looking at the latest firmware, my guess is that there will be an expansion for the MFC at some stage comprising another lot of IA switches (4 rows x 5) and possibly an inbuilt XP...

    Switching beween fx blocks with autoengage - same XP pedal (new FW)

    I have been playing around with the new firmware which is excellent. I have managed to switch between blocks using a single IA via the dual cc function (off/on & on/off) without the need for the mixer block. Typically, I would now like to use a single XP pedal & IA switch for both wah and...

    Dynamic gain array

    ...so the signal is basically sliced into a series of many very fine frequency bands and varying levels of gain are applied to individual slices, in alternating or dynamic patterns/rates to produce an organic quality. Is it possible to achieve this effect with any combination of the AxeFx...

    Active Pickups - My Theory

    I have made some observations regarding active pups: I have eight guitars. Three of them have EMG's. Those three guitars sound significantly 'better' than the others through the Axe-Fx - across all genres and playing styles it seems. Curiously, those same three guitars sounded the...
