    MFC 101 cable question.

    I have the original 101 and the regular AXEFXII and can't seem to get a 25 foot cable to work with it. I have a bunch of smaller ones that work perfect but ordered from monoprice, Amazon, and got one at fry's and can't get any of the longer ones to work. 1 won't even power it and the other 2...

    Suggestion for guys who love a 4x12 trying to go FRFR

    This thing that always was wrong for me isn't the not moving air. My Frfr speakers move enough air to blow my head off. The thing I needed was an IR that sounds like how my ears heard the cab. Not how the cab sounds with an SM57 or something in front. I'm using my ears as the mic and just needed...

    Suggestion for guys who love a 4x12 trying to go FRFR

    I've been a 4x12 guy for about 25 years. I keep trying FRFR and just can't get a sound I hear in my ears like I do sitting in front of my 4x12. I've made IR's of my mesa cab that sound pretty amazing recorded but running through the FRFR setup jamming doesn't give me that usual sound I am used...

    Underrated Amp Models

    I own a Quickrod that I love a lot. I play through a cab always with a matrix power amp and it is incredible close to the real thing. You absolutely NEED to turn on the SAT SWITCH and you are good to go. I run my actual quickrod always on 1st gear with the gain on 10 and the axefx is almost...

    Cool. Thanks for the settings on the CHARACTER control. It didn't quite do what the old Dyn Pres did though. The Dyn PRES was a gem I really started using to brighten up the tone out of a cab with my power amp. It made a world of difference just moving it up to 1 and made the tone really...

    Axe-Fx II Quantum Rev 3.00 Public Beta 2

    I'll give it a try. I uses the 5153 50W Blue and play trough a cab and at 1 it was perfect. Now from 0-10 it has absolutely no effect on tone. Tried it on 5 different amps at least and it does nothing for any of them.

    5153 Blue Reboots Axe Fx [SOLVED]

    I was just having a panic about the same thing. 5153 Blue shut down my unit 3 times then I got it to stay on and when I would stop playing it sounded like the ocean was coming through my cab. Reset in the Utility menu and so far so good. No reset or whooshing of the ocean.

    The scooped 5150 tone

    That seems to be a glitch with the bright switch. I don't use Axefx for anything and use the front panel and has the same problem but it only happens when you are playing and engage the bright switch. All crazy sounding but stops as soon as you turn it off and on when not playing.

    The scooped 5150 tone

    I've done that with the presence with the power amp sims off. Looks pretty close to it the graph. Like I said there is nothing I can do about it if it matched up with yours and it doesn't match up with the 3 I compared. I'll just keep tweaking it up and see if I can get any closer to matching it up.

    You have to own the actual amps to tell that they aren't right. The 5150 BLOCK sounds nothing like my real 5150 BLOCK in any sort of way no matter how much tweaking is involved. If you set the knobs to match up to each other there isn't a single similarity in any part of it.

    +1 with all this. I just quit trying to use the AXEFX as an interface a long long time ago.

    Best Wah pedal for Axe...

    I just got and SP1 and 2 EP1's. The SP1 is awesome and I have always used cry baby's so I really needed to toe switch. I got one EP1 with the spring load which is awesome for me using it as a Whammy Pedal. I do love the feel of the spring loaded EP1 but am so use to real wah pedals after 20...
