    Ring Modulator won't bypass

    I haven't been using the FM3 much. It's my love rig. I have my first gig Saturday. I've been playing a lot of studio gigs and studio live streaming gigs but this is the first gig all year. I have the Axe Fx III installed in my rack at home. I imported some III presets I use to the FM3. I'm...

    Distant Hills - Me playing Ralph Towner's jazz piece

    Distant Hills - Acoustic guitarist and composer Ralph Towner has been a big influence for me. He plays 12 string, classical guitar, piano, trumpet, french horn . . But he's always been a visionary and an amazing composer. I'm playing Axe Fx III. The amp is Carr Roamer. Kudos to my band. These...

    Anyone have a live streaming set up?

    I'm putting together a live stream set up for my studio and I feel I'm just walking out of the fog. Anyone do this? We'd been getting our feet wet with iPhone cameras and Switcher Studio. That's fine, but I have these really great cameras that output HDMI. It makes sense to use them since...

    Dumb problem - Bank up or down changes preset. What did I do?

    Dumb question. Scrolling up or down banks in the FC-12 changes presets rather than just let me look and maintin the curret preset. This didn't used to do that. What did I change? Obviously I did something worng. One big change is Im chaining a FC6 to the 12. Thanks.

    How do I distinguish two FM3's in FM3-Edit?

    I have two FM3s. The other one is for backup and a bass rig. But I want to load a bunch of bass presets in one and not the other. Is there some place I name them differently or are they distinguished by serial number? I plugged in #2 and it shows the presets in #1.

    Frustrated setting up FC-12 with FC-6 and expression pedals

    OK, I've been trying to not to bother y'all with my stupid questions, but maybe the manual hasn't been updated or more likely I'm just missing something. Currently I haven't been able to get two expression pedals to work. Long ago I set up volume globally for pedal 1 with an EV-1. That's all...

    Chaining FC-12 and FC-6 and the AC adaptor?

    OK, I just took possession of the FC-6 to go along with my FC-12. It didn't come with an AC adapter, which is standard I guess. But I have a LOT of 9v adaptors and none of them seem to work. Just a reality check here. I plug it in and I the display lights up with a grey pale color but none of...

    Who uses FC-12 AND FC-6 together?

    I'm considering getting a FC-6 for scenes and the FC-12 just presets, or something. I know with a little more organization I won't need that much. I'm just wondering for those of you who do how are you organizing it? Another stupid question coming: Is there a way to chain the FC-12 and the...

    Should I keep my AX8 for live bass rig?

    I've been considering this. Interested in opinions. I have the Axe Fx III (racked in studio), FM3 (live gigs and rehearsals) and an AX8 I haven't put up for sale yet. I have a studio that serves as a rehearsal room for my band. For now we're in separate spaces due to covid but when things...

    Original funky jazz song - Mulgrew's Fashion

    Bored with lock-down yesterday (Ok, I'm never really bored) I found an old midi file and played the guitar parts guitar. I dig the tone I'm getting. As you know guitars are key. I tried two other guitars and came back to my old trusty fusion strat. The amp is Super Tweed. One of my favs. The...

    Hiss reamping analog

    I've mentioned this before since way long ago - back when I had an Ultra and since that was the flagship model. I record most exclusively at 96k. I'm not going to argue about that. I record at 96k as well as most of my clients. I get files and projects at 96k most of the time. This makes...

    What could make the volume pedal change polarity out of the blue?

    So I'm here getting ready to track some guitar in the studio. No volume. I checked the pedal and about a dozen things. The EV-1 pedal is my main volume. Totally depressed, toe down is full on volume. But suddenly it changed to heel down. WTF? I just had a rehearsal earlier today and it was...

    Someone throw me a bone - I can't get analog outputs to work

    FM3 - I haven't had time to mess with it yet. I had a gig two weeks ago. I was going to use it. I loaded a few presets from my Axe III. But I couldn't get any sound. I thought it might have been something I did because I was trying to set up a pair of 1/4" outs. But then I went back to a...

    My presets got hosed

    I don't know whether it was 12.13 or 12.14 but some of my previous or imported presets got hosed. I THINK the effects got reset. Levels seem entirely different and everything seems dry. I should read more carefully. I'm sure it was warned. Most are backed up, some are not. Nothing too critical.

    Voodoo In The Time of Pandemic

    Change- jazzy instrumental- video

    I've been messing with FCPX. This is my first video. I did it a couple of weeks ago. All the elecctric guitars are through Axe Fx III. You can see it in the rack to the right. Lately I've been recording my bands rehearsal in the studio. Those are fun.

    Can someone tell me where the "Send Real-Time sysex" command is in AFIII?

    I should probably post this in the other controllers section as it's something I'm supposed to do for the FAMC LF+12+. I can't find this. Supposedly in the midi I/O section? I'm supposed to change that to "ALL."

    Which pedaltrain or other for AX8 and 2 pedals?

    Jazz tone on a Thelonious Monk tune

    I'm thinking of doing a little bit of traveling in the coming couple of years. At least to the east coast and back a few times to play. Maybe Europe too. I'd like to take a three or four unit rack. I have a very light Randall 1 unit power amp. But what ATA type cases are you guys who travel...

    Wish Notes section

    It would be very cool if there were a little place where you could take notes in Axe-Edit. Maybe with which pedal is hooked to which controller, or the differences between this patch and previous versions. Just so I can see it at a glance. I some times keep notes in Word, but most often I don't...

    Diana Nyad jazz tribute song

    Someone recently was asking for examples other than death metal. I just posted this one yesterday. It's a tribute Diana Nyad. I wrote it in 1978, before most of you guys were born. I put the guitar on last year when she attempted it then. Just a scratch track, but when she did it yesterday I...

    I had a fun gig tonight

    Most of my gigs are jazz ones. There are only a few presets I use for that. But I still go crazy with some nutty sounds - ring modulator, pitch shifting, multi delays, soft overdrive pedals and or amps. But tonight I got to play a bunch of old rock 'n roll tunes. Joe Walsh, Chicago, Joe Cocker...

    Something's definitly screwed up

    When using the front panel to set my controllers the page keeps moving after about 5 seconds to some other page in the same preset. THEN when I go to Fractal Bot to save the preset it keeps saving 59 Bass Guy. I seem to recall this problem in a previous version of AE. 1.9? AFAIK I deleted...

    After all that I'm still just using the front panel

    After all that I'm still just using the front panel. I'm digging fx 11. I'm having to adjust my input levels all over again and the delay amounts. Reducing bass a little too. That was still from before I believe. Just quick. No real surgery for now. I've had three gigs since the update. I'm...

    I need a new amp stand for the Axe Fx II

    I know there have been several threads about this but I can't find them. I guess I'm not using the right search words. I left my stand at a gig and need a replacement. I thought I might try something different. And I need to order one today, soon, because I have a gig this weekend! I am not...

    Any presets for electric nylon acoustic?

    I have a gig coming up where I'm playing nylon string on a bunch of tunes. I have a Chet Atkins nylon electric. Any ideas for presets or tips on building one for nylon acoustic? I've never really used any of the acoustic patches I've seen floating around.

    Is there a switch controller that triggers by tap rather than a button?

    Is there a switch controller out there that triggers on tap rather than having to depress a button? Doing accurate tap tempos is hard, at least for me, if I have to press a button. I'm also thinking of its use with Ableton Live, to keep it locked or correct tempos. I'm using LF+12+ and have an...

    Suddenly all my inputs and outputs are too loud

    I know I'm missing something. I've been recording. I haven't done too much tracking in a few days but a LOT for the past several weeks. Mainly mixing the last week or so with sporadic tracking. I get back to it today and all my levels are in the red - input and output. Nothing has changed that I...

    Dumb question - has anyone ever re-amped an effected track?

    This is a really, really dumb question, but I thought I'd ask. Has anyone ever tried to take an effected, over driven track and either somehow convert it to a kind of dry signal or use it successfully to re-amp it? I have a solo I recorded a while ago. I really like a lot if things about the...

    Cool unintended pedal effect at my last gig

    Last Saturday I had a great gig. On one patch with my LF+12+ and a Mission SP-1 pedal - I had drive amount set to the SP-1. It was a fairly intense solo I was taking, - jazz so I could take some time to develop it. I kept pounding my foot close to the pedal, to the beat I guess. As I did it...

    Feedback IN the DI?

    I was having a discussion on another forum, for audio engineers, where they were insisting it's impossible to create feedback from a DI and be able to reamp it to get feedback or sustain. Now I know it's not impossible because I've done it many times. But I want to know how. A dry signal - how...

    OT - Who plays a Les Paul, and what do you use it for?

    I'm doing some guitar tracking and have a few guitars. I haven't played my LP for years. I have a chunk-a-chunka part I think it'll sound great on. This is one of my best instruments I have that I just don't play any more. Other than the fact that it's way too heavy, I don't know why. I have a...

    OT - Axon AX-50 Anyone use it or know anything about it?

    Any of yooz guitar dudes ever use a midi controller? I hate them but they come in handy every once in a while producing keyboard tracks or writing music in the studio. I have an Terratec Axon Ax-50. It was discontinued a while ago, but I always got it to work. It looks like with OS 10.7.5 on a...

    Presets for earlier versions without loading an entire bank?

    Is there a place (Axe-Exchange?) where the presets for previous v9 or before can be found? I know I can upload banks and take it form there, but I'd love it if there was place where I could just access prior presets, like say Super Chunk or Studio Lead. I don't see them in v10. It's no biggie, I...

    Obvious question about loading presets

    I know this has been covered before, probably very well documented. Probably in the wiki. I'm not used to using the sysex librarian - I'm on a Mac. I have backed up all 3 banks. Now I'm interested in loading up the v10 presets/banks, but I'd like to load up my specific presets on top of the new...

    Giant Steps goes overdrive

    http://soundcloud.com/henry-robinett/giant-steps-nuke http://soundcloud.com/henry-robinett/giant-steps-less-dirtortion Here are two versions of a VERY HARD jazz tune called Giant Steps. It's all improvised. I re-amped the solo. The first version, "Nuke" uses the Nuclear Tone amp, with Empire...

    I need to know how to back up or DUMP on a Mac with sysex librarian.

    I can't find the thread - someone did one on sysex data dumping/backing up to the Mac utility. Iy's not working for me. And after all this time I've barely used it, but I have apparently because there are three old files in there. Now when I launch the utility I make sure the AxFxII midi in...

    Reamping I got hiss

    I haven't reamped in awhile. Now something is wrong. I'm getting a lot of hiss. I recorded the guitar, like I always of, with a clean DI. When I route it back, coming through an analog output to my interface to the AxeII. I'm just wondering whether I've forgotten something. I've tried coming...
