    Rhythm to Lead Live - What's your setup?

    I ride the guitar volume control to vary the dynamics constantly. My patches are quite simple so the vol at 5 is almost clean gradually overdriving as I increase it. To get a bigger volume boost I use a Filter Block in the patch to add 5db

    ENGINEER or GUITAR PLAYER?

    I only use a couple of patches. I might add an effect via the MFC101 but most of the time I use the volume on the guitar. For me the AXE-FX is about convenience. I'm far more focussed on my playing to be sniffing corks.

    Okay, stupid question. I'm running FW19. Do I need to update to FW20 before going Quantum or can I dive straight in with the newest thing?

    adjusting tone in a band mix

    I have a specific set of presets for playing live/high volume. They are very different and don't sound at all great at low volumes.

    I had precisely the same problem. Sounded great in my home studio, vanished at rehearsals and gigs. Is was a recording engineer who pointed out what others have suggested above. My live patches are completely different to my "home/studio" ones. Far simpler, less gain, fewer effects, a GEQ...

    Misha Mansoor Presets and mini-review

    I love Periphery and listen to them a lot. Strangely enough (or not) the music I write and play is nothing like what they do so these presets are a kind of personal fun thing I'll mess about with in my home studio. I have a special down tuned, heavy gauge guitar I use from this exact purpose...

    Which hole for DI FOH?

    Playing a well equipped venue on Saturday with a decent system and good crew so thought I'd try going out to FOH rather than having the sound guys mic up the front of the Matrix FR212. Which output should I run to the stage DI? Sorry for the dumbness of this question, I'm sure the answer...

    Seems the Tube Snobs Have Been Right All Along

    Initially I spent time creating a preset to replicate my Marshall Tube setup but then I thought, why bother recreating tones that are already out there. With the Axe-Fx I can invent new combinations, my own sound, something I could never do before.

    Preset advice needed for studio vs live

    I too discovered this quite early on. 95% of my Axe-FX use is live so my setting are geared towards that setup. What I've also noticed is a significant difference when the volume is high. My default "dirty" tone cleans up at hi volume yet has more distortion at low volume.

    Can I create my own preset bank?

    My main present bank is a bit of a mess. It's essentially the factory presets with my own creations in the first 10 slots so my MFC can access them easily and a mixture experiments at the other end. What I'd like is a blank one with only my 10 patches which I can load before a gig. I'm...
