    More thoughts on my experience with Kemper and Axefx II

    Interesting... i ran my Ax8 into KPA yesterday into an Mbritt Sc30 and FOH guy said it was the best tone he's heard yet. Coming from years of playing AxFxII direct. Again - I don't have a dog in the fight either and I think both have their up and downsides. But it is interesting that someone...

    Anybody popped the hood on an AX8?

    It looks pretty packed in there to me. Take too much of that width away and you can't dissipate heat as easily either.

    How does this LM386 circuit boost bass?

    I can't see the picture but my guess is it's modifying the q-factor of a high-pass filter (or supposedly some other kind of filter for that matter). A high q factor equates to a boost in a selected resonant frequency.

    Does the AX8 have "SPEAKER DRIVE" and "MOTOR DRIVE"?

    ^^ Speaker drive is there, motor drive is not due to excessive cpu load iirc

    Do i need a power conditioner when i play live?

    I can't attest to the THD of a typical Furman voltage regulator, so you've got me there - but I doubt the THD is of any real significance to cause problems. True, SMPS have been around for a while now. But you can still implement them poorly. Keeping SMPS far away from the analog electronics...

    Do i need a power conditioner when i play live?

    I'd like to throw my 2cents in as well: Power Conditioners are nothing more than a glorified outlet strip for the most part. They typically attempt to filter out high frequency noise, provide surge protection, and overcurrent protection. They will not protect from damage due to brown-outs or...

    Fixed Preset bundle doesn't prompt to save cab?

    As the name implies..I was attempting to save Larry Mitchell's Life Pad preset he posted a while back which has a cab that defaults to the scratchpad. Per Yek's explanation, saving the preset should prompt me to pick a cab slot to save the cab as well right? It never does. What am I missing here?
  14. GTBorderlines


    surge protection isn't the same as using a fuse. Surge protection utilizes GDT's and MOV's etc to quickly divert lightning energy to ground, while fuses protect from a longer term line fault. I'd recommend surge protection along with your switch, something to prevent lightning damage. Although...

    Wish Scene Notes in AX8-Edit

    I just bought an AX8 myself and this was literally one of the first things I thought would be an excellent addition. The sleek design of the FS layout on the front screen is basically begging to have custom named scenes for ease of use!

    Day One AX8 impressions for a Axe II owner

    I spent the better part of yesterday breaking my new AX8 in coming from an Axe II as well. First thing i tried to do was recreate my Axe II patches on my AX8. I've got a standard template that I run for the majority of my patches that has amp/cab, 2 drives, 2 delays, a comp and a reverb. And...

    Power Conditioners: Snake oil?

    ML Tutorial: How to mix IR's with Cab-Lab 3

    so you tend to use one of those 'balanced' amps for testing out cabs and then switch to whatever amp you wanted to use? I'm wondering how well that translates to class A amps using the same concept? Obviously they have much different gain structures. I don't have CL3 so can't test it myself or...

    [SOLVED] Switching from preset 0 to 385 crashes axe fx

    that did the trick! I appreciate it. It's very strange that the preset was corrupted - i've never touched preset 383 (or anywhere close for that matter!) thanks again - I guess I'll keep this thread up for others that may have had the same problem. Unless and admin sees otherwise ;)

    [SOLVED] Switching from preset 0 to 385 crashes axe fx

    This bug has always haunted my unit for a number of FW versions - even before quantum. If I accidentally hit the thumbwheel the wrong way and go from preset 000 to 385 (or whatever the last preset is) my axe fx II crashes and makes this god awful noise if anything is plugged up to any audio...

    AxeFx2 with studio monitors

    Make sure you're not cutting the bass on the back of the power amp of the HS50ms. There's a room control setting which decreases bass, as well as the 80hz and 100hz low cut . To use them to their full extent make sure you don't have anything cut ie flat response. Keep in mind the speakers...

    OH Cab newbie advice needed ;)

    Great stuff Kevin, quick question though - and excuse my ignorance, but i'm guessing the Mesa V32 on your site isn't the same IR that's already in the axe fx 2?
