    Recomendations wanted for wired or wireless earbuds

    Hey guys-n-gals, I'm in the market for a pair of earbuds. I've been reading reviews and watching videos. Ultimately I'd love to be able to try before I buy but my area is limited. Not to mention the current state of things in the US. So I turn to the only forum I frequent for opinions. In...

    Temple Audio Boards

    For those who have been using the Temple Audio boards for a bit, how are they holding up? Is there anything you don't like about them? I'm considering the DUO 34 for the FC-12 and two Mission pedals. I'm considering screwing everything directly to the board instead of velcro. Has anyone else...

    RG550MXX 20th Anniversary resale value

    A friend is selling a mint condition RG550MXX 20th Anniversary with OHSC and candy. At first I was excited about it as I owned one of the original ones back in the day. I attempted to research the value of these guitars but am coming up fairly dry. Reverb has very few listed and history on...

    Speaker Repair

    A buddy of mine needs a speaker repair/replacement. After some troubleshooting I found that one of the leads coming from the voicecoil/cone broke at the terminal. To me it appears that it was to short and didn't have enough slack to move freely with the cone. I believe there to be a short at he...

    .mogg tracks that sound phasey

    I've been studying isolated tracks extracted from .mogg files. Some of these isolated tracks sound phasey (for lack of a better description) but not all. It may only be one track while the rest of the tracks in that file sound fine. Anyone know why this happens or how it can be corrected? I'm...

    Axe 8 mentioned on the Tim and Pete show.

    A while back Pete Thorn had mentioned doing a review on the Axe 8. I think he picked one up during the holiday sale but has not done the review yet. I was watching the latest Tim and Pete show with Lari Basilio and there is a small segment on it (FYI) - 31:11

    Looking for encoder style controllers

    Phantom Power and adding other midi gear.

    I'm currently running a 7 pin midi cable from the Axe XL+ to the MFC MkIII (phantom powered) and want to add a small midi controller to my setup that has some encoders on it.

    Midi Controllers for use with the AxeFx

    Curious to see if anyone is using any inexpensive midi controllers to change Axe parameters in real time (vol, delay times etc). I'm referring to non footswitch types. I ran across the Arturia BeatStep. And was thinking even though it's a sequencer it does have 16 assignable encoders. $99 new...

    MFC and Mission SP1 Toe Switch Problem

    I've upgraded my Axe II MkI and MFC MkII to an XL+ and a MkIII. I manually configured the XL+, copied my presets and cabs over and called that a day. The MFC however hasn't been playing well no matter what I do. My main issue is my toe switches are not working on my two Mission SP1's. Wiring...

    MFC versions and physical attribrutes

    I'm considering upgrading from the MFC MKII to the latest. I removed the rubber feet and other screws from the bottom plate and then used those screw holes to surface mount to my pedal board. My question is does the new MFC use the same screws and are the holes in the same place?

    Preset and Cab load times.
