    Well you've just described my Recto now whereas on beta 2 it was real tight with a nice fizz. Such a difference, now flubby and horrible. My Das Metal patch went horrible as well! Getting there with the Severe now though, been tweaking today!

    Fractal Newbie learning to use the Axe FX II needs some direction

    Where do you real cab and power amp guys run the output 2 knob at?

    i run stereo into the matrix and max out both outputs on the axe then use the matrix level controls as required. I think this suits the way the matrix unit works (its an attenuator) - if you did that to a PA you would probably blow it up lol.

    I think with only the monitor outputs you can only "offline" reamp. Nothing wrong with that of course just a little more time consuming. I like the idea of being able to hear the mix whilst tweaking your reamp tone.... Then hitting record! It's the 2i4 for me or a much more expensive audient...

    No hes just reamping the dry signal back to the axe and recording the result back in the daw... if you want to hear it in the mix you need to "monitor" the other tracks without feeding them back into the axe, like this guy explains:
