    Sounds great. If I am picky I would say to add a touch of high EQ to the lead vocal and pull some lower mid mud out. I am being picky because in reality it is quite well done. I would be quite happy playing in a band that sounds as good. I also appreciate you guys getting the harmonies sounding...

    Maybe more simple then what you are looking for...I use a beat buddy pedal...it allows real time control of the drum patterns with your foot. You can also load full songs etc. I have been gigging with it with my acoustic duo and it works great. Food for thought. http://mybeatbuddy.com/

    USB/Mac problem, too much power

    Newbie saying hello an what are dual amps

    I would add you can have dual cabs though panned and such which adds some nice tonal variety. With that said, I came from a dual amp setup in my pod HD500 and I thought I was really going to miss it and well...I don't. The amps sound so fantastic in the AX...no disappointment without dual amps.

    AX8 Wishes

    As far as I can tell, the Ax8 looper doesn't seem to support start and stop MIDI sync commands. I use an external beat buddy as the MIDI master and the AX8 tempo syncs fine, however, when using the looper it would be nice if the external start and stop sync commands would control the AX8 looper.

    I would like to have a preset with multiple scenes that has among other things a wah and whammy block. So in one scene the wah is activated when I move the expression pedal (the whammy is off). In another scene of that preset I would like to have the whammy effect active when I move the...

    No Global Blocks ?

    For other noobs like me, it is on page 91 in the manual. It seems to be a reasonable way to accomplish adding a dialed in block to another preset or unit. I am not familiar with the AX-FX II so this may not be as eloquent as that but this seems to work fine.
