    Do we have any OD that is a "flavored" OD in the Fx8?

    I've got a Splawn Supersport EL-34 that is my main rig now and I use the FX8 in 4CM mode with it and it works fabulously. last night the other guitarist in my band saw a Bad Company Tribute band and the guitarist was using a Supersport as well (Go Splawn) but he was running pedals into the clean...

    Looking for the best most transparent clean boost in the FX8 with no mid hump

    I recently picked up a Splawn Super Sport el-34 version and I'm looking for a boost that will not give me a mid hump , I just want a hotter signal with some hi/low cut. thoughts?

    Anyone know how to set the Rotary block for a Badfinger song?

    No matter what has appeared on my list of songs to learn for this band I've joined, anyone know how to get this sound just right? it's a Leslie simulation thanks Nick

    Can anyone tell me how to set up the pitch block to cover the harmonies in the Scorpions tune

    there's no One like you? I will play the mattias part but I've never been clear how to set this thing up. I know the Song is in "A" and t's a natural Minor progression (F to G to A Minor) so how do I set the pitch block?

    I always lose a lot of volume when using my Axe II in 4CM mode how come??

    I thought it was the serial loop in my JVM but I recently used it with another head (Landry LS30) and had the same results anyone else experience this or have any insight to it? I don't lose any volume using pedals so I know it's something to do with the unit. My other guitarist has an FX8 and I...

    I need a Cream "Crossroads" Patch anyone know which amp?

    the cover band I've been working with is thinking of covering this and I'd like to get somewhat close to the sound he had live at winterland during that now famous recording. I played it the other night through one of my Plexi patches and it didn't sound quite right (sounded good but different)...

    what do you guys use for a lead/solo boost?

    I've been running my Marshall JVM 210H for a few years now and and finally I feel that the modeling through a power amp into a real cab is where it should be. I've been running my Axe II into the return of the JVM loop and using it for power and it sounds spot on. I just ordered a duncan Power...

    I don't know what Cliff did but "holy crap"

    I had been using my axe II in 4CM with my JVM head. Unfortunately the loop on this thing does not work very well with the axe II so I had to keep my channel volume down and it seems like I was always getting drowned out. updated to latest firmware last month really haven't toyed around with it...

    Anyone know how to simulate a clean 12 string

    So what is the FRFR "DUJour" these days

    I have been away from using the modeling in my Axe II for almost 2 years and just updated last night to 5.02. Is the Atomic CLR still the considered the "cream of the crop" or has the Friedman come in as the new front runner?

    Running my Axe in front of my JVM instead of in the loop

    I've decided to try running my Axe in front of my JVM instead of in 4CM. I lose a lot of volume from my amp using 4CM (it's the loop) so I decided to give this a try. Every effect sounds fine except for my delays (no surprise there), they sound distorted and way overdone. I've begun fooling...

    Effect Question? lead in "The Wanton Song" led zep

    We've been throwing this tunr around and I'm wondering if I have anything in the Axe II that can replicate the effect he's using on the lead. I think it's something like a leslie speaker ..maybe? lead is at 2:28 We got this effect on hand?

    Saw a tribute band last night using Kemper

    Saw the Bon Jersey, Cold as Ice, Aerochicks show last night at the Showcase in Foxboro. What a great club to see a show at, the stage is big, the sound system is fantastic and not a bad seat in the house. The Bon Jovi guitarist was using a Kemper direct to FOH. I was with about 4 or 5 other...

    Freaked myself out tonight(bonehead move)

    So I've been using my Axe FX II in 4cm mode with my JVM for quite a while now (very happy with it BTW). I decided to go to 19.0 and see how much better the pedals sound, so I updated , no issues and ran my 3 main 4CM patches everything sound good, so for giggles I decided to plug in my seismic...

    Probably a really dumb question but I have no idea what this button does

    what does "Tap" control? I see it blinking and the manual says "tempo" but tempo of what" I could use that spot to assign to another pedal type but I'd like to know what it supposedly controls (since I've had this thing for 3 years now and not once have I touched that button)

    what are you guys using to transport your MFC's in?

    I got a chance to use my Axe FXII in 4CM mode a with my JVM yesterday at rehearsal sounded killer, a little hissy but I threw a gate in after the FX loops block and it silenced it right up. It's a little tight so I'll have to play with it but it worked great. I love the chorus pedals and the...

    4 cable method question

    has anyone tried running an amp model (of course the power amp modeling is off) instead of a drive pedal? I'm curious as to how a ....let's say a mark IV amp model into the clean channel of my amp would sound.

    OK I don't know what you did to the power amp modeling in 18.12 but ...WOW

    I updated to 18.12 last night so today just for shits and giggles I decided to run my Axe into the loop of my JVM today I started with a blank patch, Picked the Recto OR Vintage dropped an Eternal love pedal in front of it and a 10 band passive EQ at the end of the path left power amp...

    Is there a parameter that is equivalent to a negative Feedback control?

    I just got my JVM back from my tech and had him do a couple of mods to it. One was adding a pot that allows me to change the negative feedback. This mod really opened up the amp, so it got me thinking "is there something similar to this I can do to my JVM patches?"

    Last chance for the CLR, I have no problem going FOH from output 1 and into a power amp cab from out 2 but if I can get this to work with just the CLR I'l be one happy camper.

    Any One in the Boston area really good at shooting IR's?

    I recently picked up this JCM800 2 X 12 cab and the speakers in it are first year G12T-75's and it is easily one of the best sounding Marshall cabs I've ever heard. Definitely the best G12T-75's I've ever played through. These early ones have vents on the magnets (makes them easy to Identify)...

    So I made this recording a few years ago with a Rectoverb

    A real one with KT-77's in it through a Reto 2X12 cab and for the life of me I can't figure out which amp model to use in the Axe to get closest to it. It was thick but still relatively tight sounding (boosted with a modded SD-1). The KT-77's made quite a difference. This was in Vintage mode...

    what's the most transparent drive boost pedal we have in the II?

    I have a couple of patches dialed in exactly how I like them but they could be a touch hotter when switching to lead but I don't want any mid boost or bottom cut etc, I just need to bring on the heat a little bit to get a little more of that "liquidy feel" which drive pedal is the most...

    Brit Silver what cabs are you guys using?

    I for the life of me cannot get this amp model to sound "right" I have never played a real one so I have no idea how to dial it in a patch so some suggested settings would be greatly appreciated. Also what cab(s) are you guys using with this?

    so I see a lot of people raving about the Super Reverb

    I have not tried it is this amps strong suit it's cleans or is it and old school "dirty" amp sound that people were missing? I've never played thru one , just wondering.

    Doing a little experiment today FRFR vs running thru a Power amp

    so I've had my RCf NX 12sma for about a month now and I' really love the way it sounds. the only complaint I've had is that it's a little stiff feeling when playing lead (very unforgiving) so I started playing around with the Sag and Xformer match parameters and throwing a compressor on and...

    Sold off the last of my "Real Amps and cabs" tonight

    So I decided to go with the RCFNX12 SMA as my fulltime solution for using the Axe II. I sold My Mesa 50/50 last week and tonight I sold my Avatar 2X12 and my Recto 2X12. So now all I have is the Axe, the MFC and the RCF. this is the first time I've been without a 'real rig' since 2001. I'm a...

    V30's and H30's in X pattern in a 4X12 cab any one try this with their Axe FX?

    I've been looking at some diiferent cabs and one came up with this configuration and I'm curious if anyone here has tried it. it seems to get good reviews from people on line but I'm obviously more curious as to what it would give me with the Axe than what it would give me with a Splawn or a...

    Anyone in the boston area own one of these RCF wedges?

    I really want to experience one in person before I shell out that kind of money for something only to take a loss on it when I go to sell it if "it doesn't do it for me". Anyone in the Boston area have one that I can check out?

    Whoever posted the Msa Mark III tone match on the Exchange

    Whoever posted the Mesa Mark III tone match on the Exchange god bless you :D I used to have a Red Stripe Mark III and thru my 50/50 power amp out to my Recto Cab (I needed to add a high pass filter and a GEQ to slightly tweak due to the 50/50 adding a lot of bottom end, I have to do that to...
