    Double Verb Vib - Drive from clean to mean needed

    Looking for a really sparkly clean amp I bonded with the Double Verb vibrato channel lately. Master Volume halfed and saturation switched to ideal did the trick for amazing cleans. Now I’m looking for a drive block which delivers rocking rhythm crunches and creamy leads just by a turn of my...

    Aaarghhh - The nasty 'Uses global blocks' bug is back!

    At last night's gig I realised that the volume of one particular preset was different from when I saved it on Q8.01 and gigged with it two weeks ago. A quick look at the unit confirmed my suspicions - the nasty 'uses global blocks' bug was back and had scrambled the values in the preset's...

    Horror gig - Axe stopped working mid-gig!

    Last night I experienced a horror gig. I adjusted all my presets with 8.01, checked every single preset to make sure they worked allright, backed them up, packed all my stuff and went off to the gig. So far so good. The gig went allright as usual at first. However, when I called up preset 11...

    Headphone question

    I have a question regarding headphones. I am in hospital now but have to prepare for a show week after next. Naturally, in hospital I can only edit my presets using headphones. I use elaborate routing and several amps + cabs in x and y states which makes editing time consuming. Anyway, I have...

    Urgent help with violin patch needed

    i have been using the violin patch that has been around since FW13 and removed the 'orchestra' path so that I could use my LP's bridge HB to sound like me playing a violin. However, probably due to the drive block lately being enhanced, the violin patch now sounds thin, rather nasal, and lacks...

    Problems with backup

    When I wanted to back up bank A after today's session using Bot it stopped repeatedly at exactly 33% telling me something about some message timeout. I checked the presets and found that in one preset the infamous and PITA global blocks bug was back scrambling data in volume blocks which are...

    AC20T lost its balls?

    Having come from Q2.03 I updated to Q3.01 yesterday. My presets are pretty straightforward amp parameter wise and I almost never touch anything apart from gain, BMT, presence, and master - like you would with a real amp. I use the AC20T for clean and crunchy tones in quite some presets and they...

    Midi thru issue with AxeFxII MKI

    There seems to be a problem with sending midi messages through to outboard gear from an AxeFXII MKI (Q2.04). The AxeFx receives the messages all right (midi in flashes) but the outboard gear does not receive it. The midi message is sent from MFC101 through a CAT5 cable (no Faslink) and midi thru...

    Reducing CPU load

    I was wondering if anyone could help me out here.

    SDD + 6G12 + 4x10 = tonal bliss!

    Everything set at default apart from motor drive around 3 in the cab block. Take a guitar with low output single coils or P90s and there it is - that sweet singing fenderish sound - think of Mark Knopfler's Sailing to Philadelphia record - my new favourite patch for clean sounds on the verge of...

    Midi Implementation question

    The Midi implementation chart of the AF2 shows that cc# 0-9 and 125-127 are not used. Does anyone know if they are 'free' and if it is safe to use them to control some other gear or are they in use internally and should be left alone? Thank you very much.

    FW18+PLEXI100=WOW!!! But CCV behind blankets?

    What happened to the PLEXI100 in FW18? There is such clarity and note separation. This one especially improved from the new magic sauce. Many many thanks FAS!!! However, some other amps sound muffled. The new crunchier and gainier CCVs sound like the speakers are behind thick woolen blankets...

    Possible bug in FW 18 beta7

    BUG: Global block bug has returned with 17.03 and 3.1.4

    Custom Pitch Shifter Bug

    When selecting custom shift in the pitch shifter block you cannot set voice 1 scale and voice 2 scale to the same scale - and I was unable to select scale #1. Using the front edit panel it works fine. I used a preset that was created with the axe edit version before last. Can someone reproduce?

    Midi glitch?

    At the latest show I had the following problem (which I just verified at home): - MFC is set at bank 0 (preset switching by up/down only) - some presets have CPU far over 90% (which work flawlessly btw) - when switching to these presets it takes quite some time before they are recalled and the...

    Amp and/or cab modelling on/off separate at out1 and out2

    AFAIK, when you go FRFR to FOH (via out1) and to a real guitar amp with cab as back line (via out2) you have to insert several rows in your patch which can only share the blocks BEFORE the amp block. Everything AFTER (including the amp block) has to be separate. This may lead to user errors...
