    Recreate Aphex Exciter effect

    Jason, your description sounds similar to a "tilt eq":

    No, I do not at the moment. Do you have suggestions on how to replicate it the effect?

    Recreate Aphex Exciter effect

    Back to my original question everyone: Jason, how do you recommend setting up a the EQ or PEQ block to replicate the Aphex exciter effect?

    Recreate Aphex Exciter effect

    I had a BBE and compared it to the PEQ with the settings I mentioned earlier. The PEQ sounded better, and was doing a similar thing. I'd like to do the same with an Aphex or even the old Rocktron exciters.

    Recreate Aphex Exciter effect

    I keep wondering of Exciters at 100% mix are actually "tilt eq's".
  6. C

    Recreate Aphex Exciter effect

    I know the BBE trick in the PEQ : shelving boosts at 250Hz and 2.5kHz, roughly. Per Michael Neilson, of Big Hairy Guitars fame: Exciters are different than BBE. Again: I see that there is an "exciter" type in the cab block preamp type. The controls on an actual Aphex Exciter are: "Harmonics"...

    Recreate Aphex Exciter effect

    I see that there is an "exciter" type in the cab block preamp type, but what controls the "exciter" sound when it is selected? The controls on an actual Aphex Exciter are: Harmonics (Normal or High switch), Tune, and Mix. What are these controls in the Cab block? Or is this something that can...

    What Tap Tempo notes for Ping Pong delay?

    What do you recommend so that I can use tap tempo on the delay block? I'm thinking a typical ping pong delay with something like 285ms and 385ms -ish? Thanks!

    Character Knob: is it just a PEQ in the amp?

    It looks like a Filter block after the amp with the "Tilt Eq" setting does the trick!

    Character Knob: is it just a PEQ in the amp?

    The old character knob control on the amp block: is it simply a PEQ or Filter block within the amp? Therefore, if I used a character frequency of 1000 Hz, and a character amount of "4", is this similar to having a PEQ or Filter block after the amp set to a frequency of 1000 Hz and a boost of 4...

    Outboard Gear w/ Axefx 3

    Am I correct in assuming that you can connect 3 different stereo devices (pedals, rack gear, etc.) into the Axefx 3? (I ask because of the different connector types in the back of the Axefx 3. Thanks!

    Importing Axefx 2 IR into Axefx 3

    Will this work even if the custom IR in the Axefx 2 is regular res and not ultra res?

    Importing Axefx 2 IR into Axefx 3

    Really? So, how do you transfer the custom Axefx 2 IR into the Axefx 3?

    Importing Axefx 2 IR into Axefx 3

    Sorry if this has been covered folks, just double-checking: I know that you can’t directly import a custom IR from an Axefx 2 into an Axefx 3, but I assume this is one option: doing a tone match in the Axefx 3 of the IR that is in the Axefx 2. This should work, correct?

    Recreate an Eventide Eclipse preset? (823) "Verb>breV"

    I do have an RJM Mastermind LT, with an expression pedal and an external switch plugged in to the LT for extra momentary on/off effects. I was hoping to have this preset just do its thing on its own, and not have to tap dance while I'm playing guitar. Isn't there a way to do this?

    Recreate an Eventide Eclipse preset? (823) "Verb>breV"

    Well, I got it to sound rather similarly, and it's quite cool sounding, but I never got the controllers to work properly. Wouldn't attaching an LFO, ADSR, or Envelope Follower to the RUN controllers make more sense than an external controller or scene controller? (I'm not using a pedal for this...

    Recreate an Eventide Eclipse preset? (823) "Verb>breV"

    Hey everyone, I'm loving this Eventide Eclipse stock preset titled "Verb>breV", and its preset number is 823. It is supposed to be a modulated reverb feeding into dual reverse delays set for a long amount of time. I'm sure that this can be recreated on the Axefx 2 (or 3), but I'm struggling...

    Celestion F12-X200

    I just got two of these speakers. Finally had them installed into cabs. They are great! Having all the extra high-end frequency available in the speaker really brings out all the great qualities of the effects, as well as all the aspects in the IR that we like. Plus, hearing backing-tracks...

    Celestion F12-X200

    Nunu, thanks for the feedback! I’m a little confused regarding the sound dispersion description. Are you saying that you need to have your head dead-center with the speaker cone in order to hear all of the frequencies, or no?

    Using 2 cabs in stereo question

    Using 2 cabs in stereo question

    I know it's stereo: with headphones, it is definitely stereo. It happens with all patches. Maybe I should switch the two speaker cables so L goes to R speaker, and R to L speaker, just to see what happens.

    I'm considering using a 2x12 stereo cab with my Axefx 2 and Matrix power amp. I'm thinking of buying a vertical 2x12 with a slant on the top speaker, but this speaker cab can run in stereo. I realize that when this cab is setup for stereo usage ping-pong delays would then move top to bottom...

    Turning on your powered FRFR speakers
