    Updating from Pre-Quantum to 9.04

    Years ago, I found the tone I was looking for and dialed it in with my bands, so I stopped updating (v13ish). I know a ton has changed, but my main question is if I'm going to run into any issues with my MFC settings. I don't have a problem having to re-dial in patches, but I've got some pretty...

    NGD Custom Emerald Steampunk Carbon Fiber Electric

    A few years ago I started exploring the world of carbon fiber guitars and after a ton of research, I pulled the trigger on an Emerald X10 Acoustic. A year or so later, I hit up Alistair Hay, owner of Emerald Guitars, for a custom 4-string version of his 5-string bass for my wife. He knocked that...

    NGD: Carvin DC7X

    The guitar porn guys put together this amazing run of guitars with Carvin and I managed to get in on it. I am extremely impressed with this guitar. I am not really a 7-string guy, but this guitar is just stunning. The craftsmanship is beyond my expectations at this price point (under $2k). This...

    Wife's NGD: Emerald Bass (carbon fiber)

    My wife received her new custom Emerald Flow bass yesterday and it is AMAZING. The pictures turned out much redder than the actual color, but I managed to snap one that actually looks purple.

    Help! At a gig right now!

    My axe II keeps cutting out on me. I have signal to it, but the output signal keeps dropping out. I reboot, and it's fine. When I shut it off, there's a pop at the board, so I don't think it's a cable. We've changed the cable 3 times, have tried left and right output 1. Haven't tried output 2...

    Automated changes + MFC?

    Opened for Five Finger Death Punch on Saturday

    Saturday was insane. 10am: Phone rings. An offer on our house came in and the buyer gave us asking price. Holy crap. Commence frantic reading, signing, etc... 11am: Packing up the car to meet at our bass player's house, which is where the trailer is. Upon arrival, I see the other guitarist...

    Mounting MFC to a pedalboard

    How are you guys mounting your MFC's to your pedalboards? I'm using Godlyke Grip Tape and I stupidly applied the grip tape to both the board and the MFC at the same time, so now it's impossible to "latch" them together. I've been basically dealing with it popping off (and my copper pipes holding...

    Piezo alternative?

    I'm looking for the piezo type sound without the piezo as it won't work with the bridge hardware I am using for a new guitar. I want to be able to blend the Piezo sound with my magnetic pickups and I'm hoping that there's some other solution out there that I've never heard of. Any ideas?

    Downtuning a PRS 25" scale length guitar

    I've been doing a lot of research on scale length recently and am intrigued that PRS guitars uses a 25" scale length (Fender, ESP, etc... all use 25.5" while Gibson is at 24.75"). I know there are a lot of PRS users on this forum and I'm wondering if those users tune down to Eb standard and what...

    Compressor for Monitor Rack

However, the new chorus combined with a weekend off and my MFC sent back for a repair (stupid drunk people), I...

    New Autoengage Wah problem

    I have my wah setup to autoengage in the heel down position. Previously, I could ease into the wah for a type of "Wah swell" (Third Eye Blind's "Jumper" verses), but now the damned thing won't engage. Is there a way to set it back? Or at least make it more sensitive?

    How to set default scene for ANY preset

    Band Demo (Chaos in Question)

    Well, after months of work, we finally have a decent sounding demo up on our myspace page. We did everything from recording to mastering ourselves and none of us have experience at it. Thanks to Minnesota State University Moorhead's Audio Production class, the other guitarist received...

    Problem with going direct to PA

    I've been incredibly impressed with the Axe FX's performance thus far through our PA setup, but last week the owner of the PA (our drummer) brought an experienced sound guy in to help "setup the rest of the rack effects". I was not present during this ordeal, but they moved a bunch of power...

    LF Jr and Preset Step Thru

    I have a weird issue happening when using my LF Jr and Step Thru. I'm trying to setup my Presets to "step thru" the normal preset and a boosted version. I just received the controller tonight, so I'm pretty much a newb to midi. To test my setup, I just used a simple Wah block and assigned the...

    Still need AC power if using 7 pin Midi and LF Jr?

    So, my LF Jr. arrived today. I bought it second hand and it didn't come with an AC adapter, but it did come with a 7pin midi cable. I guess I assumed that would be enough. Is this a setting on the Axe FX or do I still need the adapter to plug into the Phantom Power jack on the back? Also, I...

    For all the guys running mono

    I'm supposing most of you are running copy L->R and into either a mono FRFR setup or a power amp. Do you find that you make sacrifices for this? Obviously ping-pong delay is out, but what about your chorus and reverb sounds? I'm still kicking around a non-IEM setup, but I'm wondering if I...

    Speakers for dialing in tones?

    I've decided that my current setup just doesn't allow me to hear everything that's going on when I'm dialing in tones, so I'm trying to decide on what to get for this purpose. Options: Adam A7's - I plugged into this babies at a local studio and it sounded fantastic. This seems like a good...

    1 Expression for both Wah and Volume on same patch

    With the new 8.09 firmware, you can basically setup an "auto-disengage" when the expression pedal reaches a certain point (toe down for this example). I'm wondering if there is a way to utilize this and then assign the switch in the toe of the pedal to be a volume/wah switch. The end goal...

    Finally finished with Preset Organization

    The following banks are for the Ultra! After many hours listening, playing, and planning, I've finally arrived at what I think is a satisfactory arrangement. I decided to share the banks with you guys so anybody complaining about how the banks aren't organized has a starting point. Notes: 1.)...

    Turning off power with conditioner

    It probably doesn't matter, but I had a discussion today about turning off the power of the Axe using the switch or simply just turning off the power conditioner it's plugged into. I can't imagine it would hurt anything either way, but what do you guys think?

    Just discovered the Fryette model...

    ...holy crap. I had never heard of Fryette before, so I just kinda skipped to something I knew. I was going through and re-labeling patches with a category and I stumbled upon stock patch 312 "Ned Beatty". Next time somebody asks if the axe fx can do high gain patches, just direct them to...

    Emulating the Line 6 "Freaky Whamster" patch

    There is 1 tone on my Vetta II that I just have no idea how to go about emulating in the Axe FX. It's basically a whammy effect that happens automatically. The patch is called "Freaky Whamster". Any old Vetta users have a patch for this? I'll throw a recording and the vetta settings up later...
