    Short live clip showcasing in the room sound with a cab (metal, clean)

    A short live clip showcasing in the room sounds and the potential benefits of using the Axe Fx II sending 2 feeds: one to FOH and the other with cab sims off through the matrix gt1000fx to an on stage cabinet. In this case the cabinet was not miced so it was used for stage monitoring and for the...

    New video (progmetal stock cabs)

    Ofc not. Tone is for sharing mate. The sound you re hearing is the n65 stock cab cali 4x12 coupled with the recto4x12 (oh) that used to be part of the stock cabs before quantum came out. it's replaced by the recto4x12m160 if I'm not mistaken. I mailed the nice people at fractal when it was...

    Progmetal tune

    Thank you Sean. It's live drums :) We used samples to blend with the recorded sound but it's 90+ percent mic sound and a light touch of blend with the samples. Different stuff from different kits. Can't really remember. Will go to our engineer to do some playthroughs so when we open the project...

    Loong prog Soong (live)

    Well you can find my basic rhythm tone attached. I am using the usa lead brt for the rhythm, a variation of that with more gain for solos, usa clean 2 for cleans and usa crunch for that edge of breakup tone. Hope that helps. Cheers

    Loong prog Soong (live)

    Once again thnx. You are spot on about the milisecond thing. Forgot to mention it and it's a crucial thing. So thnx about that also. Maybe I should post a camera sound so that you can see how the blend is. It's really close to the mixed sound you hear on the video though.

    Hey there, Thanks for the feedback. Glad you liked it. Well it's a JP7 and I'm using the stock pickups (dimarzio crunchlab and liquifire), it's just the zebra covered ones. For live situations I use the XLR outputs of the axe to send direct signal to FOH (with IR's) and the FX loop to send a...

    Live track with axe 2- (Proggy) metal

    thank you for the compliment. i guess I'm trying to nail the tone that's in my head. I guess the gear points to Petrucci but to be honest i think the core of the sound lies in the early metallica mark tones. Either way I'm really glad you liked it. Cheers Rav

    Well this is a clip of an old song of ours we did at a recent gig. I run my axe 2 XL both through the matrix and cab and at the same time use the XLR outputs for FOH. The friend who mixed it preferred the miced sound when mixing. what do you think? Hope you enjoy Rock on Ravaya

    Downgrading to FW9

    I guess it makes no difference to say, but FW 9.02 is not leaving my axe 2 anytime soon. It just works. For recordings, live use, the whole deal. I live without axe edit because i really fancy the sound in 9.02. FW 10 or 11 just didn't cut it for me. Peace - Ravaya

    Using my Axe-FX II in a Mesa Boogie Mk 5 effects loop.

    I sold my Mk 5 a week ago. It is a wonderful amp on its own but incorporating it in a big rig including midi switching did not work for me. 4 cable method with the axe is really noisy and completely out of the question (I own a stock axe 2 mark 1). Loop on does color the tone. you could try to...

    Gigged with axe fx 2 for first time... Not what I expected... :(

    Ok here's the deal (IMO that is). I use roughly the same setup as you. 1. I really had to tweak patches I loved when recording direct to make them work in a live situation using the matrix and cabs. I primarily use the Diezel VH4 ch3 and the JCM 800 models. What I found for example is that...

    Axe Fx 2 + Pd HD500 expression pedal question

    Thnx again for your input guys. I'm starting to suspect that the rather short sweep happens due to the axe corresponding to the pod's ex pedal as the volume control for input 1 and not as an actual volume block. will experiment further and report.

    Axe Fx 2 + Pd HD500 expression pedal question
