    Wish Reset Amp Block without touching Authentic Controls

    I don't think this is possible right now, but when I reset an amp block I almost always wish it was resetting only the deep parameters. I pretty much never want it to touch the authentic parameters (i.e. gain, tonestack, MV) which is what I have dialed in for most presets. This would be really...

    Blue Headphone Fans: High Freq Notch needed?

    I know in the last Headphone thread we had a lot of Blue headphone fans. I spend a lot of time using HPs and I have been using the Lola's of late which are the unpowered version of the Mix-Fi. I know cans are crazy quirky and even less perfect than studio monitors, which is why I DO have a...

    Dumb SPDIF Question: Clock Source effect on Analog I/O

    I don't have my Axe available right now, so I can't test it out but for computer use I normally go: Guitar Signal->Rear Analog 1->AxeFx 3->SPDIF OUT->Computer I have been setting my computer interface's clock as 'external' (i.e. use the AxeFx's clock) this seems to work well enough. The issue...

    Implemented Momentary MIDI CC support for 'Bypass' controls

    Like many I am configuring a general MIDI controller for the Axe III. One thing I noticed that would really be a huge improvement is that if the 'BYPASS' page had a setting for specifying whether the switch was a 'momentary' or 'latching' switch. The current implementation for controls on the...

    Does the III not support momentary MIDI CC for toggles?

    I'm messing around with my new MIDI controller and am trying to get it to toggle a DRV1 I have it setup in the AxeFx III's MIDI mappings to CC21. When the controller button is pressed it is momentrary so the control goes: cc21: 0->127->0 I can see the DRV go on while the footswitch is held...

    Anyone have a 'pet' stock cab?

    I recently used Fractool to do an analysis of what cabs I am using and which ones I am not (mostly to free user slots) and it confirmed what I already knew, for the stock cabs I *really* like the humble, old school, 4x12 Cali (F065). IRL I never would have guessed this would be a fave (CL80s...

    AxeFx Power Down creates havoc on USB bus

    I have had kind of an oddity w.r.t. my AxeFx 2 mk II for a long time. I frequently use it with a Macbook Pro and Thunderbolt display (which has an internal USB hub) system. Generally when I power up the AxeFx it is not a problem but when I power it down, it can create chaos on the other USB...

    Did 3.7.0 make a fundamental change in cab selection

    I'm confused. This AM I updated to 3.7.0 but selecting cabs seems broken. I know there was a new feature implemented with regard to the filtering so that is cool but the simple act of selecting a new cab from the regular list seems to not work as expected. If you click on the cab name in the...

    Live Mode : Any Tutorial?

    I know this is probably trivial but it has been a long time since I have done a tone match... I want to play around with some tone matches and I have the actual gear on hand rather than a recording so I figured I will use "live" mode, since it seems like it should be more accurate. My previous...

    Are the Mac OS X drivers working for USB Audio

    I just got a brand new Macbook Pro. Has very little on it. Trying to configure AFX II as the audio device. Driver installed, shows up in sound preferences, selected in output/input, input shows levels moving, when I play the Axe or audio via iTunes, etc, I get nothing. Monitoring with headphones...

    Fractal Units have problems with 4CM?

    Some guy on rig talk is making weird claims about the AFX II (and the Ultra before it) having issues when used with the 4CM. He's acting as if this is some widely experienced and acknowledged issue with the Fractal units but I have never heard this claim? A search pulls up no immediate info. Is...

    Wish: "Pin" the block or directory import selector.

    I often download and evaluate others patches. I have a huge collection of my own also. AE's limited import export really makes managing anything not in the Axes memory a PITA. Simply being able to "pin" the import window open on a library or directory and leave it open so I could rapidly import...

    I'm putting a drive block in front of every amp

    Okay, finally got the Axe2 back, upgraded to 12, and am dialing in again. I still haven't really adjusted from the Ultra, I think... I had it really dialed in. Basically, everything feels "mushy" on the Axe 2, the low strings in particular seem thin, too. Like I simply cannot get enough...

    My High Output Pickups do not feel like it...

    Hey Guys, I have a number of guitars with decently high output humbuckers (example: Duncan Distortion, PRS HFS). It seems like a lot of relatively high gain amps, Cameron High, SLO Lead, etc, do not feel or sound like they are being driven very hard by my guitars even with very high preamp...

    Why does AE tie my FX Loop to Output?

    I use my FX Loop send as power amp out (typically bypassed cab). When I put the FX loop along the rightmost vertical row, it seems like AE wants to automatically tie the FX Loop to the main output and so it mixes the FX Loop send with output 1's original output on the main outs this wreaks havoc...

    Connection Issues

    New Axe 2 owner. Now that I've auditioned the thing a bit, I am digging into editing some presets and doing some user cabs and I'm getting pretty frustrated. I do not want to use the front of the unit. I only want to use the software interfaces. I grabbed Axe Cab Manager and Axe Edit 3.x...

    Ultra Owner considering the Axe 2... once bitten, twice shy.

    Okay gang, I know this is basically a FAQ but I'd like to start another "Help me sell myself an Axe 2 thread". I guess mine does have a slight twist, since I am pretty concerned with the product's development cycle... I'm one of the Ultra owners who bought shortly before the II came out. I...

    Is there any way to stop the Axe sending tempo?

    My MIDI interface and audio interface are integrated, I get a really slight pulsing noise in the audio thanks to the AxeFx insisting on sending a MIDI tempo pulse all the time. Is there any way to turn this off? I can't seem to figure it out... I tried turning tempo to 0/1 (using Axe-Edit...

    Noob Question: High Gain Amps Sound the same...

    Hey Guys as noted in another thread, I just got my AxeFx this Christmas. :) So far it's impressive but one thing that has struck me as "funny"/weird about it is that many of the different high gain amp models feel and sound very much the same for me in a lot of circumstances... For example, if...

    Do new units ship with latest firmware?

    Hi Guys... new soon to be AxeFx Ultra owner here (got the wife's okay on Thanksgiving for this to be my Christmas present to myself :) ). I've been GASsing for this thing for a year or so, so obviously, I'm pretty stoked. I'll be using it mostly in a PC/home studio context and I'm a PC patch...
