    Want a KSR Amp? You probably already have it in the Solo models

    Tone matching a KSR and then using the SLO 100 as the amp could always work wonders too.

    #%%^$£ USB

    Yes, this is all correct, but if one process doesnt work for the USB-C ports, it shuts all of the other ones down. Every process goes through Apple's T2 chip, and it has a mind of it's own. It seems the USB-C ports behave differently with picking up devices in the M1s for some reason. They...

    #%%^$£ USB

    I think the reason it does this is the way Apple Handles USB-C. For USB-C they run all the task USB-C can do through one controller. So in a way its made to run in series. It has to be something like that, which makes sense why a hub fixes it. If one task (like charging the computer) doesnt...

    AxeFX3 and tube amp purchases

    I love the Axe FX III, and bought a Revv Generator 100R. I love Revv and also wanted a good tube head to do pedal and other videos with. Also the Revv isnt in the Axe fx (yet) So it sorta made sense lol.

    [SOLVED] My Guitar sounds incredibly fuzzy, flabby, and frankly awful with modern high gain tones - what can I do to fix the sounds?

    Build your own patch. Using presets can be a bit odd because they were made on another system with different guitars. Find a good IR that you like and can see yourself building things around. The Stock ML Sound Lab, Dr Bonkers, and York Audio IRs are a good place to start. Also, check out...

    Difference between FAS Express and FAS Wreck?

    That might have been one of the amps used on the album but Misha has said he used FAS Modern. Jake has also said they used Das and the Recto. I think they used all those amps tbh.

    Friedman BE-100 and FM3 - Axe-Fx III (emulate Phil X Demo)

    You could also just tonematch the left channel without the reverb and get an IR/EQ that is close to what he is using. EDIT: Tried tonematching it but it doesnt work. He has reverb on his signal and it throws off the matching.

    Simple tip for Recto tones

    Marshall Amp - Fine Tuning

    Marshall Amp - Fine Tuning

    This may sound very simple, but go into the EQ tab and cut some mids out. I find that once you cut a little of the lower mids the Plexis are much easier to dial in (no that they are hard to begin with). just -2 to -3 really clears things up for me and lets me focus on getting a good tone.

    The REAL Mesa Boogie Mark IIC++

    Use either the JPIIC+ or the IIC++, put gain to taste, and then EQ it the way you want it. Real in the axe fx is subjective. Just get it sounding good, that is all that really matters in the end.

    Can I use a IR designed for Fractal in Logic without any additional software?

    You can only use .syx (which is the axe fx files for IRs) on the axe fx. You cant use them in any other IR loader. You will need to download/buy an IR pack that uses .wavs as the file extension. You can buy the York audio ones in a .wav format I believe. ML Sound Lab also makes some good ones.
