    Does the output jack need to be replaced after removing some EMG's?

    I had paid a guitar repair shop to remove some EMG's (EMG-81 and EMG-SA) from my guitar and install some passive pickups (DiMarzio CrunchLab Bridge and Bare Knuckle Impulse Single Coil). We are not able to try the guitars out there due to their understandable pandemic precautions but I had...

    Cygnus Question .......

    I had updated my FM3 to the FW 4.00 and I had uploaded the new presets based upon the Cygnus firmware. I was expecting a change in tone and feel since I was going from Ares to Cygnus, however, I really didn't notice anything different from Ares to Cygnus and I usually notice them right away...

    Can anyone recommend an Android Tablet to run FracPad?

    I have been looking for an android tablet to run FracPad but I didn't want to spend much on the device. However, I want the android tablet to be reliable for using the FracPad (I will not need to use it for anything else). The problem it seems with the android tablets is that many of them seem...

    Changing the AXE FX III back to the earliest version ..........

    I would like to conduct an experiment where I compare my XL+ with Ares 2 to the AXE FX III in it's earliest form. I would need the AXE FX III 1st firmware, the AXE Edit version that worked with it, and the original AXE FX III stock presets. Where would I find each of them? Also, would I need...

    Using Fractool to convert Axe-Fx presets over to the AX8

    I have an XL+ and there is many presets that have been dialed in to taste so I wanted to start using the Fractool to convert them over to be used in the AX8. I had used it many years ago when to take some of the presets from the FX8 and place them in the XL+ for the effects but it has been a...

    Purchasing Amp-Matching Presets for the AX8

    I am looking for some top quality presets to purchase and I came across these ones where it looks like they used the amp-matching feature. https://www.choptones.com/collections/fractal-audio-patches/products/bogie-jpc2-amp-pack-patches-ax8 Does anyone have any experience with these types of...

    A Go-Fund-Me for Another AX8 Firmware Update

    I can understand why there has been no responses to any posts regarding requests for an update since it is just not worth their time to do one. The AX8 sounds great in the current Q10 firmware but I believe it would benefit enough of us to have the Ares firmware (or a version of it) since I...

    SOLD AXE FX III - Brand New - Still sealed in the box - $1900 plus shipping in USA

    I had purchased two of these units and I never opened this one (purchased on NYE and received in January). This price is probably the best one out there for a BRAND NEW and unopened AXE FX III sitting in it's box. It will save you around $400-$450 right now and this one is in stock and no...

    Master Volume Control for the FX8 ........

    Is it possible to make one of the knobs on the FX8 a master volume? My friend was saying it is possible but I don't remember that being the case when I had owned one myself. Can anyone confirm that they did make one a master volume? Thanks ahead of time :)

    True Bypass Effects Quality of FX8 Versus FM3

    The FX8 "features an extremely high quality signal path to deliver ultra-low noise and pristine sound quality" (taken from the Fractal Audio website). I had the FX8 and I found the effects quality to be pretty damn good and it really did have true bypass. I felt it sounded better than the XL+...

    Any Triaxis Users Out There?

    I have an XL+ and I am trying to validate keeping my Brand New Triaxis by using it as a preamp for recording Mesa Amps guitar tracks. Once I heard the Triaxis was being discontinued 3 years ago, I searched everywhere and found a store in another state with a brand new one in an unopened box...

    Options for the 5 knobs below the AXE FX III window ..........

    Would it be possible to make the 5 knobs below the AXE FX III window set up for Gain, Bass, Mids, Treble, Presence or Master Volume? Originally, I assumed that we were going to use those knobs for quickly tweaking those five things on our amps. I had purchased a RAC 12 for my XL+ for this...

    Any suggestions for a MIDI relay switcher?

    I need to "midi" switch the channels on a KSR Ceres preamp pedal that I want to place in the effects loop of the XL+ but I only need a device that has one or two relays for the switching since I don't want it to be too pricey :) I thought the XL+ had a relay option on the back of it like the...

    Has Cliff finally allowed the Axe-Fx III to become sentient?

    Can the USB connection just stop working on the III? I have only played my III a small number of times since I purchased it. I had done the firmware update to 3.01 last month and I was able to connect to Axe Edit with no issues. I believe I had played on it a few more times after the update...

    What can I use to convert wav to sysex IR's for Ultra?

    I want to purchase some of the OH cab packs but the Ultra requires sysex IR's, so I am trying to find a program that will convert from wav to sysex, and each program I tried had issues with the OH free samples. Any recommendations? I don't want to purchase anything until I know for sure I can...

    Looking for PRESETS that work well with TUBE amps

    I am looking for AXE FX III presets that work well with tube amps (for purchase or forum user provided presets). I have a Marshall EL34 50/50 and I have finally been able to dial in some XL+ presets to work well through it without my reliance upon my JMP-1 (I still prefer using my JMP-1 in the...

    Does the Axe-Fx have a Power Amp insert option?

    I have been trying different setup configurations with my JMP-1 and my XL+ lately so I am trying to determine if I can insert "just" a power amp behind my JMP-1 (the actual JMP-1 is inserted as an FX Loop through the effects loop). I believe I had used this option a long time ago but I have not...

    I am trying to replicate a Digitech RP50 Octavian Preset

    I am willing to pay someone to replicate this preset for me. I had purchased this pedal many years ago for my wife when she was interested in playing guitar. It had some cool enough presets on it along with 18 basic drum patterns which I thought would be fun for her when she was playing with...

    Does this happen to you?

I am using an M-Audio Uno to connect them to a PC with Windows 7. The AXE...

    The MFC-101, XL+, and Marshall JMP-1

    I have an FX8 and it was pretty straight forward to get my FX8 to switch presets on my JMP-1 in any order I wanted but using the MF-101 and the XL+ definitely takes more work so any help with this would be highly appreciated :-) I want to be able to change the XL+ presets along with the JMP-1...
