    AES/EBU in the Axe FX II. How it works?

    Yeah, I've also think about this option, but never tried it because of the latency in doing something like that (soundcard in, then soundcard out, then soundcard in again) and because, as you also noted, of the different "input levels" between the dry track recorded via soundcard and the output...

    Oh no, don't get me wrong, I enjoying my Axe Fx II a lot! It's just that me and my computer disagree on some things. Maybe a couple of kicks in the hard drives may solve the problem :D

    AES/EBU in the Axe FX II. How it works?

    Just thinking about it a coople of minutes and I had an idea. Since I only need the Dry track to be without AD/DA conversions, is it possible to record it via Aes/Ebu and at the same time record the processed stereo signal via the Analog Output?

    I agree with you on the fact that sometimes we focus on really subtle things, but on the other side I have to say that I like this approach. I mean, you know that those parameters are there, it's up you if you want to tweak them or leave it at factory settings. And there are already, I think...

    Absolutely not, maybe I've expressed myself bad. I just think that this kind of technology is really at its infancy. It's like drum sampling.
