    Headphone use... Volume of DAW not loud enough to compete with the Axe

    Hey guys, This might seem pretty basic for most people but I'm a bit of a noob with this stuff. I recently moved into an apartment so I'm strictly using headphones with my Axe FX. I use Logic Pro X. The volume of the click is ridiculously low, even at max volume inside Logic Pro X. I can't...

    Dave Mustaine plays Fractal... it's even on the Megadeth site!

    I used to think he was a clown too until i read his book. It's really interesting. He has got some strange views on things and does speak out of line sometimes but he's a really cool guy i think!

    I don't understand the hate for the green screen...

    I'm the same mate. While i understand it could look better for sure i just don't see a problem with it. The unit is rock solid and the screen is basic enough to get it to do what you want quickly. I kind of rather things more simple as opposed to more flashy and a bit more technical to use...

    Karnivool

    Karnivool are incredible. Sound Awake is my favourite album of all time. I still can't believe they made that album, it's insanely good. I shudder to think how many times I've listened to it from start to finish and it still hasn't gotten old yet!

    The Haunted - Exit Wounds

    Holy Fuck! I seriously love Peter Dolving and he is one of my favourite vocalists ever, but this album is incredible!!! I would have thought they would have gone backward with so many line up changes but this band honestly never fails to amaze me. I pretty much love all their albums but i...

    Did your effect pedals GAS stop since you bought your Axe fx?

    I have stopped looking them up online so obsessively, but there are still definitely a few i would really like to run through my Fender DRRI (I hardly use this anymore haha). Black Arts Toneworks and Earthquaker Devices pedals really make my nuts tingle. I sold about 12 pedals total of both...

    Owns Axe FX XL and uses only one amp

    I agree. I only use one patch on my Axe FX 2 haha. I feel kind of bad for neglecting all the great things on it, but I'm probably not the best at creating different tones.

    I'm an idiot, you can type the tempo in. I would still like to know why i can't drag my midi files into it though?
  20. FantomasXD

    EZ Drummer 2 users please read.

    The tempo seems to be a knob so i can't type in the exact tempo. I want to just drag the midi block into EZdrummer but when i drag it, it just drags it "behind" the EZdrummer window? Not on top and into the "drag midi song blocks" here section. Any ideas why it could be doing this?

    Fender Deluxe Reverb RI, Help Please!

    Beautiful. I just ordered a new tube to replace the V4. Everything in channel one works fine, it's just the reverb. I'll let you know how I go but seriously thanks so much! I'm going to back your theory and hope for the best that it's just a dodgy tube. You've been a great help mate. Cheers!
  28. FantomasXD

    Fender Deluxe Reverb RI, Help Please!

    Ok so when i take out V4 the buzzing stops. This is a good start. Im a bit of a noob to be honest, how do i know if the tube is broken itself?

    Fender Deluxe Reverb RI, Help Please!

    Mate first of all your an absolute legend for taking the time to respond that. Much appreciated. So i took out V3 and turned my amp back on and the same thing is still happening, I'm guessing that means its something else... Do you have any other ideas man? Cheers again.

    Fender Deluxe Reverb RI, Help Please!

    Best Mid-Priced Active Monitors

    I use Yamaha HS80M's they cost me 350$ each from Australia. I can't tell you they are the best because i've only ever used these...

  56. FantomasXD

    A few things regarding high gain tones.

    That works for low- to mid-gain tones, and amp sims whose original amp has no master volume knob. In those cases, high MV can make the tone nice and fat. But with high-gain tones, the "fat" turns into "flub," and it bogs down the tone. Mate... You have changed everything for me.. The sound i...
  57. FantomasXD

    A few things regarding high gain tones.

    Damn. I seem to have had it all wrong then. i always thought that having the master volume cranked that's how you get the balls to the wall sound. I'm going to try that and see how it goes. Thanks for your reply man. Like i said i'm still new to this so i enjoy the constructive criticism. I love...

    Anyone experienced this? Please help!

    Cool! Thanks a lot everyone. You guys are legends. I think I'll just tweak every amp separate because like it was said they all need different settings. I originally thought I could just save some time when tweaking multiple patches. Good fellas you's are! Thanks again!
  66. FantomasXD

    Anyone experienced this? Please help!

    ooops. false alarm haha. when i change the amp it does the same thing. damn
  67. FantomasXD

    Anyone experienced this? Please help!

    YAY. It looks like you can do it. Instead of axe edit i loaded global block(without link) and it worked. For some reason axe edit doesnt do this. it must be a bug. This makes things alot easier!
  68. FantomasXD

    Anyone experienced this? Please help!

    Actually i just tested that and it still changed the thunk and what not. So whats the point of global blocks haha?
  69. FantomasXD

    Anyone experienced this? Please help!

    Thats true Rex. Thanks for the replies everyone. So the thunk and pick attack etc will stay but not the settings on the first page you see?
  70. FantomasXD

    Anyone experienced this? Please help!

    I figured that idea would work BUT i don't know if its an axe edit issue or not but it doesnt actually do it! it flashes like its about to load then it does nothing. Should i try this on the face of the axe?
  71. FantomasXD

    Anyone experienced this? Please help!

    Damn! Thanks for your prompt reply. Is there any way to make similar patches easier? instead of changing every little parameter every time i try a different amp. or am i barking up the wrong tree? Cheers!
  72. FantomasXD

    Anyone experienced this? Please help!

    Hey guys, this is an interesting problem I've come across and i need help figuring out if its a glitch or it's me being stupid. Here goes... When I'm creating a patch and place an amp in a vacant block then adjust the paramaters of the amp, e.g master level, drive, thunk, character, etc...
