    How do you increase your guitars volume when playing a solo?

    +1 on this method. It's also nice to be able to "swell" to the boosted volume. It sounds more natural.

    AX8 vs. Helix: On-The-Fly Programming.

Then, I really challenged myself to give the AX8 a try... an honest try. I found the first week or so to be a...

    Do you use amp knobs on your AX8?

    Me too. LOVE the knobs. It is too convenient to simply change, drive, bass etc by twisting the knob rather than navigating to it through the menus. Very quick, very useful and then just save it when you get where you want to be.

    What is procedure for importing user cabs?

    I was able to load all of my purchased cab pack using Ax8 Edit. You go to the 'Tools' Section (I think) and then go to User presets and simply drag and drop them. Then hit save and watch them "go green" and they are there to use from there onward.

    What effects you using in your DAW when recording with Axe FX?

    I agree! Nothing! Why commit to effects which once are tracked cannot be undone? I always record dry and let the mixing engineer add whatever is necessary. If the track has effects on there from the recording, you are stuck with them.

    Why is De-Phase necessary?

    This really is good good description of what I found the DEPHASE parameter to do. My experience is that setting it about 3.4-3.6 softens the cab in a pleasant way.

    I don't think that your issue has anything to do with your IRs.. Perhaps it has more to do with your EQ settings or the amount of gain you are using in your patch. The majority of the time, when someone cannot be heard through a mix, it is usually due to too much gain for improper use of EQ. I...
