    Anyone interested in developing a simple VST plugin?

    A fellow Axe-Fx user and I have been talking about how great it would be if there was a plugin that could be inserted in a channel in a DAW that would offer two simple features: (1) capture a preset (plus IR and FW version) and (2) recall said preset to the Axe-Fx. The plugin would have no...

    NGD - Skervesen Shoggie DC NTB 8 string

    I got this guitar a while ago and finally getting around to sharing it with the world. To say I think it's spectacular is an understatement. Hands down, it's the best playing guitar I've ever played and the workmanship is second to none. With the "World Domination Mod" pickup selection...

    Power amp modeling question.

    Probably a dumb question, but I just wanted to be sure. Power amp modeling only affects the sound when there's an amp block in the patch, correct? I have my Triaxis/2:90/Two Notes Captor loadbox in the FX loop. Obviously on the patches that use the FX loop, I don't want power amp modeling...

    After giving Studio One an earnest go, I’m sticking with Cubase

    I’ve used Cubase forever. While it’s certainly had bouts with serious quirks/bugs from time to time, all in all, it’s been very stable for me for the past several years. As much as I love it, I feel it’s getting bloated - new code built on old code, repeat, repeat, repeat for around a decade...

    Calling all ART X-15 experts...

    What I'd like to be able to do is use the secondary mode of the X-15 to do scenes 1-8 in the preset, button 9 to activate the tuner, and 0 to do a tap tempo. Is this possible? If so, how do you recommend I do this? Thanks!

    What input level should I use for my DI signal into my soundcard?

    My soundcard's control panel has the options -10dBV, +4dBu and Lo Gain. Which of these should I use for the (analog) DI'd signal from the Axe-Fx? It seems +4dBu gives the highest levels.

    How to get Axe-Fx to send program changes to Triaxis via MIDI

    I have a Triaxis in the FX loop of the Axe-Fx. My goal is for the Axe-Fx to change the MIDI program/preset number on the Triaxis. I presently have the MIDI Out of the Axe-Fx going to the MIDI In of the Triaxis. When I change presets on the Axe-Fx, nothing happens on the Triaxis. How can I...

    FR: Always on top option for Axe Edit

    @Michael Pickens I'd love to see an "Always on Top" option in Axe-Edit so when I'm editing in my DAW, I don't have to keep Alt/Command-Tabbing between the programs. Is this possible?

    Can we get a mix knob for the Tremolo block?

    ...or am I missing something? I rarely want the Tremolo/Panner at 100%. And creating parallel paths gets tricky and takes quite a bit of time as compared to what a single knob can do.

    Why not have a built-in "test file" for TM

    My understanding is the Kemper matches both EQ and gain structure in its tone matching process. I believe it uses some sort of noise it sends through the original unit that covers the spectrum of frequencies and levels. It seems the Axe's Tone Match block is the same except it doesn't have the...

    How can I work an Axe-Fx, TriAxis, and 2:90 into a recording and live rig?

    I am buying a TriAxis and 2:90 power amp (thanks, @GotMetalBoy!). I want to work it into my rig so that I can record directly into my soundcard for tracking and out to a cab (or, ideally, two cabs) for playing live. The issue, far as I can tell is the placement of the power amp: For tracking...

    A Fractal presence in enemy territory at NAMM.

    Preface: I swear I didn't do this on purpose. A good friend of mine had used and recommended the Kemper to me for years, and I the Axe-Fx to him. (He now uses both (but seems to have a preference for the Axe-Fx).) The NAMM show was my first opportunity to check out the Kemper. Anyway, not...

    NGD - EBMM Majesty 7-string Limited Edition Starry Night finish

    Just got this guitar yesterday. After fine tuning the setup all I have to say is MAN - this thing plays like a dream. I have the action so low and the sustain is untarnished. The ergonomics of this guitar are unlike anything I've ever played before. My only gripe is I'm not sure I like the...

    EV-1 not working?

    Just got an EV-1 today. I hooked up the EV-1 pedal (Expression out) to my Axe-Fx II XL+ (Pedal 1 in) using what I believe is a TRS cable (see attached pic). I then went to I/O (on the Axe) > Pedal1 Cal > pressed Enter and moved the pedal back and forth > pressed Enter again. From there I...

    Replacement fan for Axe-Fx II (original)

    I record in the same room my Axe is in and it's noisy enough that it disrupts recordings and is too loud even when I'm not recording. I know there are a lot of threads out there addressing this but everything I've seen seems to be old. I've build a high-powered PC that's just about dead silent...

    How to emulate M/B 2:90 Deep and Modern modes? And Dyn. Voice?

    Is it possible to emulate the Deep and Modern modes of the Boogie 2:90 power amp with the Axe? If so, how? Also, I know Dynamic Voice was discussed here http://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/how-to-emulate-triaxis-dynamic-voice.69666/, but how can it be emulated on the Axe with any accuracy -...

    WISH: Make the PEQ block one page in Axe Edit.

    Presently the PEQ block has three pages, one for bands 1 and 5, one for 2 and 4, and one for 3. I think this provides for a slow and clumsy workflow. E.g, if one were to adjust the five bands consecutively (not an uncommon workflow), one would have to switch pages five times! For sake of...

    Issues with importing someone else's Axe-Fx banks - please help.

    A friend recently sent me a bank of his Axe-Fx tones which I believe he created on 15.02 (maybe a bit earlier). I'm on 16.03. Using Fractal Bot, I imported his bank. The majority of them imported with the Amp block settings at 0. I then loaded in his system.syx file and the Amp blocks'...

    CK's IRs compared to the new OH HGE package

    Did the Input Gate change?

    Since updated to FW14 it seems the noise gate on the input isn't functioning - or at least not the same. I noticed significant amounts of hiss coming through (even on clean patches). When I played with the (input) noise gate, I noticed that it seems to respond very differently. Previously...
