    As the title states .... I went to change my Bank size from 3 to 7 for an upcoming Good Friday service .... and while it saves it in the FC Setup section, it will NOT allow me to select any other option in Preset(Select in Bank) besides 1, 2, or 3 which is what my previous setting had been in my...

    Morgan AC20 Deluxe

    So, I just recently picked up an early Morgan AC20 Deluxe and noticed that the Cut control on the actual amp is completely opposite to how it operates in the Axe. Was this done like it is in the Axe for it to make more sense(the higher you turn the value up, the more the high end it cut) vs...

    SOLD Axe-Fx II XL & MFC-101 mk3

    I upgraded, so this needs to go. Axe FX XL loaded with the newest firmware, Ares 1.03, and set back to stock preset banks(A,B,C).

    Routing/MIDI Question

    Question for all those running the full Axe rack...... Let's say for instance, I was running an Axe FX II mk1 and using the little FAS converter box to run ethernet cable into XLR to run to a MFC mk3.

    Thought for the day.....

    I'm sure someone has thought of and suggested this many times before, BUT..... how cool would it be for Fractal to come up with something about the size of a Strymon Big Box pedal with an Input/FX Loop/Output(XLR/TS Combo's) that just housed enough CPU for Amp/Cab modeling!!! That way you could...

    Matchless HC/DC/SC 30 channel 2

    Ok, has anyone figured out how to emulate the 6 position tone control on the 2nd channel of the HC/SC/DC 30 in the Axe??? I know all it is is a rotary switch with different value caps on it to shape the EQ curve, but I wonder if anyone has figured out how to emulate that with maybe a PEQ block...

    Tone Match to IR conversion

    Ok, so who still has an Axe FX 2/XL/XL+ that wants to do a Tone Match to IR conversion for a fellow forum member?

    Bank Import/Export with AX8

    Is it possible to import/export a full Bank file of Presets with the AX8? I know you can do this with the Axe FX II, but unless I am missing something, I don't see how to do this with the AX8. Can anyone shed some light either way?

    Wish Fender 6G6 Blonde Bassman

    Man o Man o Man o Man how do I wish we could get one of these modeled in the Axe. I know it has been asked for for years now, but it's because it's just its own AMAZING kind of amp. There is just something about this thing that makes a NEED TO HAVE inside the little black magic box. I am sure...

    Wish Separate Controllers X & Y States

    I don't know if I titled this correctly or not, BUT..... what I wish is that you could assign an external expression pedal with different limits on the X and Y state of a Block. For example, when I have a Reverb Block running in parallel to my signal flow and want to control the Input Gain with...

    AX8 and Cab Lab

    OK, I just want to make sure that there isn't something missing or that I am over looking something in this process. I know with the Rack units that you can run Cab Lab in Live Mode and hear real time changes to your mixes in Cab Lab, but I haven't found a way to do that with the AX8 yet. Is...

    Mic Type Not Available in the AX8???

    So, this was brought up in another thread and in the interest of not HiJacking that thread, I thought I would create a new one to get the skinny on the situation. @Joe Rogers stated that selecting Mic Type in the Cabinet Block was not available in the AX8. He said that it was wrongly left in...

    Possible Pedal Calibration Bug

    I have noticed that I am not the only one having an issue with expression pedal calibration. Is it possible that the calibration process is not saving the calibrating process?

    AX8 Expression Pedal

    OK, when I had my Axe II I made a dual expression wheel pedal. I used TRS jacks and 100k pots. I wired them up exactly like my Mission EP-1 pedals as far as where the wiring went between the jack and the pot. SO, I sit down to do the same thing for my AX8 last night, get it all buttoned up...

    External Footswitch Trouble

    12 External Controllers???

    OK, I have been wondering this for a minute now and can't seem to find an answer. So, you have 4 expression pedal inputs on the MFC and 4 external switches on the MFC and if you have the XL /XL+ you have 2 pedal inputs on the back........that adds up to 10 controllers......where's the other 2 at?

    USB Direct Recording Issue

    Ok, I tried for the first time last night to record from Axe 2 using the direct to PC USB cable and recording into Reaper. I get this nasty static when I play the guitar.

    Volume Block Issue
