    Fractal-bot freezing computer during backup on Windows 7

    When doing a backup of presets/user cabs using fractal-bot on windows 7, the computer will freeze/require reboot every time. Using the same USB cable, when I perform the same backup on my windows 10 lappy, it completes the backup every time. Tried two different cables, neither work with...

    Sanding neck on Fool guitar

    I have a version of Clapton's "The Fool" SG and I'm thinking about sanding the paint off the back of the neck to improve the playability. It's a pretty heavy, textured finish, since it was hand-painted with oil-based enamels, like the original. Clapton did this to his original SG after the paint...

    Return to footswitch screen

    Is there a quick way to return to the footswitch layout screen besides pushing the EXIT button when you are in the edit screen or grid layout screen? Like programming an F-switch to do it? Couldn't find any reference to this in the manual....

    import preset automatically saving

    Sometimes when I import a preset using axe-edit, the imported preset will automatically be saved to the preset number I'm on, even without me clicking on save. Most of the time after importing a preset and then selecting another preset without saving the imported preset, when I return to the...

    Instruction manual

    Looking for instructions for using Axe-edit and the axe-manage tools, I clicked on the link in the owners manual for axe-edit, which opened the website for axe-edit. I see the download buttons for axe-edit, but can't find any links to the instruction manual. Anybody know where I might find it?

    I think I need another Axefx

    I love the amp tones in FW10. The Marshalls, Fenders, every amp seems to have its characteristic sound and feel that differentiates it from each other and has it in spades. I've owned plenty of tube amps (Marshalls, Fenders, Deizels, Egnators, Blackstars, etc.-all gone now thanks to Axefx) so I...

    What gear have you purchased since getting an Axefx?

    Usually the question is "what gear have you sold since you got your Axefx?". Just wondering if the Axe has had the same effect on other players tone-seek/GAS/etc. as it did to me..... Since I bought my Standard 18 months ago, I have purchased a total of 2 pedals (only one I use much) for...

    Thanks Cliff

    Like to take this opportunity to thank Cliff for creating the Axe-fx and congratulate him on his new product. Since I bought my Standard 11 months ago and paid it off selling my amp heads, cabs and effects units, not a day has passed where I haven't been amazed at the capabilities of this...

    Updated the standard using axe-edit to firmware 11, now axe-edit won't connect, says "check midi settings"....? Worked fine before, as long as Firefox wasn't running.

    Review time

    Well, time for an official review since its been 6 months and the Axefx has definitely found a permanent home in my studio. I can really relate to Porkchop Express as his history is very similar to mine, especially in the lifelong search for tone, and the official end of my GAS, so his review...

    Question about presets

    Standard owner here, was wondering if the presets that come with the Axe-fx are set up/optimized for gig-level volumes or lower studio-level volumes? I'm still working my way thru the presets on a set of studio monitors and seems some sound good at any level while others only at cranked volumes.

    Effects rack for Axefx

    Anybody use this SKB rack? Looks perfect for the Axe-fx, especially cause they used one for the ad picture. Thinking about picking one up. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002WJ ... PDKIKX0DER

    New Axe-fx Standard owner first impression

    This is not a review, just a first impression. Got it today, unboxed the unit and plugged in my Alesis 620 studio monitors. Set it up according to Yek's excellent first-time user setup, and plugged in my Gibby LP studio lite. Started with a familiar preset, Crazy Train. Played a few bars and...

    Am I a Standard or Ultra?

    Having made the decision to buy an Axe-Fx, I am still torn between which model would satisfy my needs. I guess the best way to determine that would be to list my playing style preferences and get some input from users. My main playing preferences are BLUES (clean/overdriven, SRV) CLASSIC ROCK...

    Looking to Axe(fx) my gear

    Hello, new to this excellent forum. Yeah, I know it was a stupid pun(subject). Looking into buying an AxeFx, still evaluating my needs and the AxeFx capabilities. It's not a matter of money, as it would presumably replace a lot of equipment I would be selling to pay for it. From reading the...
