    Wish Suggestion for Axe-Edit III Layout

    Except there are knobs on the Axe that don't exist on the Editor, so then what do you do? Can you answer this one? And some knobs under the Axe are not under the same tab as on the Editor. No common sense at all. It does makes sense because the software Editor does come with other...

    On the first point, I'm not talking about the parameter numbers. I'm talking about how a knob on the Preamp page on the Axe is not on the Preamp page on the Editor. How can something this basic not be the same on each. As for the second point, the Axe Edit tabs have plenty of room. See the...

    Can anyone please help here? Why is Axe Edit not synced with the interface on the Axe III. In addition to above, the Sat Switch and Sat Drive are on the Preamp tab on the Axe III but not the Preamp tab in Axe Edit. It just makes no sense to me. I use both interfaces and it would be great to...

    Golden ratio delays

    Great stuff. It does start to converge into reverb or shimmer as you add certain other changes like the diffusion or multiple delays. In fact this is likely a great setting to use when sitting up the multiple delays for shimmer because it's so natural. I'm going to update my shimmer settings...

    Cab Pan Followed by Delay Question

    2290 with mod. Everything set to center so not using an stereo panning on the delay black. To test it again, I used a mono delay block instead. Before it is a cab with an IR panned full -100. The first dry note pans full left and then all the delayed notes are in the center.

    Cab Pan Followed by Delay Question

    I have a cab IR that is panned left. It sounds fine with the delay (after the cab) off. But when I turn the delay on, only the first dry note is panned left and then all delayed notes are center. Is this what is supposed to happen? Why is IR panning only related to the dry signal? Shouldn't...

    The infamous "amp in the room" vs FRFR discussion

    Ok, big update here. Thanks to Jason's tips, I made a huge advance in getting the "in-the-room" tone I was looking for. The key is to use a second "room" cab that has modeled the amp much further away. There are fewer of these (with the text "room" in the title of the IR), but I found four I...
