    "Beds Are Burning" - Live Video

    Our cover of the Midnight Oil classic. The left channel is my live guitar, which is my 70's Tele Custom using the 5F8 Tweed amp model. I doubled my part in the right channel with my 70's Strat using the AC30 Top Boost model just for fun. Everything else is from the show. Enjoy!

    I Don't Care - Power Pop Rock Version

    Need Help With Acoustic Treatment For Critical Listening In My Basement

    My basement has always been the music room of the house. It’s just a happy mess of fun stuff designed to enjoy music and spark creativity.

    Bon Jovi - "It's My Life" Video

    Here is just a quick one minute clip from our show last Saturday doing Bon Jovi's "It's My Life". We're a three piece band, so it's always fun working the keyboard parts into my guitar part. I'm not using the synth block or anything fancy like that. I'm just fitting the parts in when I can. I'm...

    The Main Squeeze - 'Have A Cigar' (Pink Floyd)

    Not at all Axe Fx related. It's just a video that popped up in my recommendations on YouTube. It starts off as a very faithful and really good cover, but then when it gets to the outro solo.... Holy Crap! It's chill and groovy at first, but then gets really intense. Bravo!

    NGD - 1969 Gibson SG

    Using One Amp Setting With Different Guitars

    I put this in the lounge because it’s not just an Axe Fx question, but an amp/guitar question in general. It just becomes easier to do with the Axe Fx.

    Tom Petty Cover - “American Girl”

    JCM 800 with Ownhammer Public Beta Redux in a mix

    Here is a quick mix from the multi-track I did from last nights show. The guitar track hasn't been touched at all. My Axe Fx is still packed away, so I wasn't able to download the patch. If anyone is interested, I can put it on Axe Change later. It's just a pretty basic JCM800 patch. I kick in a...

    My Show From Last Night

    They streamed my show online last night. Now that the show is over, it's archived and available to watch any time. Even with the limitations of live streaming video and audio, the mix didn't turn out too bad. I credit that the awesomeness that is the Axe Fx. :) I also multi-tracked the show. I...

    Need Help Making Backups - Max OS 10.6.8

    I'm not sure when things stopped working, but I've been running without a safety net for a while now. I want to make some major changes to my patches, so I want to back everything up. I'm running Mac Os 10.6.8 and use SysEx Librarian. I'm not able to upgrade to Lion or Mountain Lion yet for work...

    Video - First gig with RCF as backline

    I know this isn't the best recorded example, since the audio is from an overdriven Canon PowerShot mic, but I thought I would post it anyway. The song is the title track from the singers upcoming solo CD. Xeno has been a fixture in the Milwaukee music scene for a long time now. He is from the...

    Looking For New Christmas Album Recommendations

    Anyone pick up a new Christmas album this year that's worth checking out? Or better yet, does anyone on the forum have a Christmas album of their own?

    What If Cliff Wins The Lottery??

    It's a scary thought, but it just dawned on me. The Power Ball lottery is over 500 million dollars right now. What if he won? Most people usually say they would quit their day job. Yikes! Not right now! Wouldn't that just be a kick in the pants? I mean, congrats to him if he did. Suddenly he...

    We’re the first of 10 winners!

    We entered the Mix, Master, Promote competition from Silent Underground Studio and ended being the first winner. So they professionally mixed our song “Destination” and put together this cool video. The whole experience was great. Easy, fast, and they did a really good job. Daniel...

    Auditioning Cabs Without Axe Edit - Help

    I know this is in several different places, but I'm just sucking at searching the forum right now. How do you I get IR's into the Axe Fx without using Axe Edit? I'm on a Mac, OS 10.6.8 and I have SysEx Librarian. Axe Manage isn't working. It connects for 2 seconds and then crashes. I'm just...

    I Recorded All Of My Speakers To Compare Them

    I have a show coming up at the end of December where I know for a fact that my guitar will not be going through the PA. It’s a house system, and they only allow vocals and kick drum in the PA. So whatever I bring to play through is what the audience will hear. I wanted a good way to compare...

    EAW VRM12

    I found three threads on the EAW VRM12. 2 were asking about them, but not really any answers. In one thread, someone used them for vocals and liked them, but nobody had yet used them with the Axe Fx. I can get a new pair on a really good deal. Has anyone used them with the Axe Fx? Does anyone...

    To Guitar or To Bass

    My cover band hasn’t played since August. Actually, the drummer quit, which makes it a little difficult to play. We had one guy lined up to take his place, but it didn’t work out. The original band I’m in barely plays. Everyone else in the band has a handful of other projects they are...

    Looking For A Smaller Bass, Maybe.

    I'm toying with the idea of trying to get myself some bass gigs. I've done plenty of recording with bass, but never playing 4 hours a night. I have a 79 Fender P that I like a lot, but it does feel a bit like climbing a tree when I play it. Don't get me wrong, that's part of what I like about...

    A Couple Of Live Recordings

    I’m gathering together some live recordings of our songs to give to our new drummer so he can hear some of our arrangements. I figured I might as well post a couple here. This was an outdoor show in the parking lot of Quaker Steak and Lube for their Bike Night. The bass player and I are both...

    Get The Feeling Everyone Else Has A Gig?

    It's Friday night, and the forum starts to slow down. Then it dawns on me, everyone else probably has a gig. Our drummer quit, and I haven't had a gig since August 5th. I did have a couple of studio dates, but that's it. No worries. I get to mess around with the new firmware update. Plus I'm...
