    ipad USB Audio

    I did a test. It works if I plug the ipad directly into the Axe-FX instead of my rack interface. Just another frustrating case of an Apple product not playing well with others.

    I agree that a lot of clean tracks were direct into the console. Nevertheless, I think the Axe-FX should be able to replicate that. It might take a powerful wizard though.

    David Williams funky clean in Michael Jackson's Billie Jean has a great clean, funky tone. His solo starting at 3:30 is very compressed. How would you approach replicating that extreme squish? Two compressors?
