    What are your opinions on running a sim cab into a real cab?

    This above says it all. I also use cab sim on with my 25 watt greenbacks. In my opinion, I have a pretty mean tone and I've gotten nothing but compliments since I made the switch to Fractal. Rocket, there's no such word as "rediculous" in a tone sculpting thread. We're talking about the...

    Axe-Fx II XL+ Noise Problems

    Sorry you're still having the issue. I was hoping something would have helped or made it less. I really do hope you can figure it out. If it does it when you go somewhere else, you may want to contact Fractal support and see what they say.

    Axe-Fx II XL+ Noise Problems

    Hi Hayden, I'd like to offer a few things to try. 1. I'd get that Furman off of the AXEFX. Metal to metal can bring about some interesting sounds. My racks are all separated by thin sheets of cardboard in between them as well as Humfrees rack isolation tabs. Never let your racks just touch like...

    Tell me what amps you DON'T prefer!

    I can list several amps that I don't like right out of the box. But I won't. Instead, I'd like to challenge you to take one amp you don't like, and mess with it using different cabs. Once you find the right cab, dialing in the amp is pretty easy. Sometimes a new FW seems to make quite a few amps...

    Vai saying Modeling is not there yet :)

    Then there's the other scenario. How many of you struggled when you first got your Fractal gear? I wouldn't say I struggled, but it took me quite a bit to warm up to it for my particular needs. Let's go back to AxeII firmware 13 before quantum. What we had in MY opinion, was one heck of a...

    Vai saying Modeling is not there yet :)

    I'd like to know more about the latency thing, to be honest. I don't have the ears of Vai, but I got some pretty good ones. The only latency I can think of is when we use a pitch block first in line to drop/raise our tuning. The only other thing I can think of is maybe when he gets too far away...

    "Record what you hear" with Adobe Audition

    I don't use my AxeFx as an interface and sometimes need a DAW that can capture "what you hear". I usually use my stock Realtek soundcard for stuff like this as its just easier for me without messing with my good interfaces or anything. For example, there are times my students want to learn...

    Going from FRFR to poweramp/cab

    Totally agree with you! But you said the two key things, it depends on the cab and the IR. Most IR's to me are either loaded with unrealistic low end or harsh highs. So you're tweaking to compensate no matter what. Try tweaking something in full using ON and see how you fair. That's one thing...

    Going from FRFR to poweramp/cab

    No sir, you unfortunately, are not alone. Lol! Power amp MOD ON makes the treble a little more active, but with a few tweaks I like the sound with it ON as opposed to the tweaks I've done to make it sound good while OFF. To the OP, I've never been able to use any of my studio patches (which...

    For me, all I had to do was high cut or low cut in cab options for this pack without messing with the amp I was using. With some, I didn't touch a thing.

    Simple fix Jimmy, just get an editor like Adobe Audition, tune your guitar half step down, then tune the Dokken songs up or down to taste using their pitch adjustment. I do this all the time with cover tunes, for clients and for times when I just want a different flavor. Adobe has one of the...

    Are amp blocks necessary?

    It can definitely be done. My reason for doing it was to stop the glitch on the AX8 when using 2 amp blocks. For example, I use a dirty amp for dirt on X, and say a USA clean for Y. When I use it like that, there's a hesitation in the scene change for me. No amp/bypassed amp block for clean and...

    Live amp solution for the Axe Fx II

    Easier solution: Your guitar to the AXE input. Output of the AXE into return of your combo amp.

This also will stop you from preamping your...

    What is the effect in this song? Hush remake

    Bingo! My thoughts as well mr_f. Sounds like a synth to me too as well as a HAAS effect guitar intro. It has no differentiation between the two guitar parts. It's near impossible to play both parts that spot on to where it sounds like the two players are perfectly in time. Our Enhance effect...

    Preset #75 latency??? WTf??

    **Raises hand** That would be me. LOL! Total fix...I got a mixing console and never have to do input monitoring through my interface again. I actually never had a problem as my interfaces at 64 buffers are at 1.3 ms latency. However, if you have a load of tracks happening with plugins and a mix...

    Horror gig - Axe stopped working mid-gig!

    Glad to hear it all worked well. Hey, if your patches aren't too CPU intensive, the AX8 may be the perfect backup rig for you and you'll save a couple bucks too. Something to consider. :)

    Horror gig - Axe stopped working mid-gig!

    OK since we're all sharing horror stories, here's the story that landed me here using Fractal gear... We had just won a huge battle of the bands contest. Nice lump sum of cash and quite a few nice venues showing interest to have us play. We get this casino to book us for insane money. They are...

    Horror gig - Axe stopped working mid-gig!

    I never EVER do a show with new fw unless I've played on it for at least a week while running over my set in real time to make sure things work as they should. I had that happen to me with fw 7xx. Something that worked great on 6.02 stopped working and claimed CPU overload once I loaded the...

    Stereo Chorus & Spatial Expansion

    Unix-guy nailed it. Thanks! When using the HAAS delay trick, the delay being a higher number on the right in my examples, will make it loose. Meaning, it will sound like two guitar players who are not quite playing in time....which means "loose". When the right side delay is smaller in value...

    Thanks brother! You're too kind, thank you! The audio is just the intro to unchained and mean streets. I then converted the tone match to a cab file. The brown amps didn't sound good to me. Eddie has a certain sizzle and saturation while getting pinch harms that I couldn't get right with...

    Kudos to Fractal ! Metallica/AX7 gig in Baltimore.

    @fixdrummer cool vid, thanks for sharing. Sounds Ikea Metallica to me! The reviews of their recent show in Philly at Lincoln financial field were abysmal. No one had anything good to say unfortunately. I don't know why they book those big open stadiums....the sound is always horrible. They...

    Thank you, gentlemen. :)

    MkII controller and XL+?

    Will this work with an XL+? I got a friend that can pick one up for about $300. But we're not sure if it will work with an XL+. Does anyone know? Thanks.

    @Admin M@ are the guys going direct into these PA's or are they still mic'ing a cab? Are they even still using cabs? Just curious.

    Yeah I'm with you. I like to try the updates too. But it sure is nice to just plug in and play. :) I had a cancellation tomorrow so after I run my errands, I'll see what I can do. I wish I had the time to do more. I miss this place.

    Symphx, if I get some time I may try to but quite honestly, there are so many updates and amp changes from week to week, month to month, I simply don't have the time (nor the desire) to mess with that stuff. My own personal sounds took a pretty big hit to the point where I'm on 4.0 when I need...
