    How well does Tone Match work and how hard is it to get isolated tracks?

    Yes and yes. Try it with "Blue Moon" by Tommy Emmanuel or "She Talks to Angels" by the Black Crowes.

    I'm blushing. Thanks and same to you, Leon!! Yes, there will be an FM3 Master Class. It will be a bit shorter than the III class but no less complete.

    Andy Wood at Axe-Fest East

    Yes, exactly. I can get you (the Axe can get you) the exact same tone Andy has here, but you will see very different settings in the preset. That's why presets are an amazing starting point but always need work player to player if an "exact" match is what you're looking for. But there is no...

    Axe-Fx III power conditioner or voltage regulator?

    Again, as it has been stated many, many times on this forum, the vast majority of power conditioners are very cheaply made and will fry long before the Axe in a surge situation. But it's your money. Do whatever you want with it.

    That's a tough one. They've done a beautiful job with the bridge on the SSS, which was refreshing, since I'm in your camp---I've always found that the least usable stand-alone pickup on most guitars. If outright "versatility" is what you're going for though, I'd probably have to go with the HSS.

    Ear Plugs question

  49. ccroyalsenders

    Ear Plugs question

    Custom mold plugs are great for blocking, but aren't super transparent. They cut essentially all the highs. I like mine fine, but my Earasers were much, much cheaper and have a more even attenuation across the spectrum.

    Different Delays?

    This. Not to mention so you can use instances of each at will instead of being limited to just a blanket "Delay Block" that you can only have four of. I have presets with four delays, a plex delay, and multi delays, and a multi tap.

    U2 "Streets" Clip

    That "special tone" you're getting at is the result of natural feedback and interplay between the strings and the speaker. When you're playing under headphones, there is zero sound reinforcement moving back into your guitar from the speakers. This has a *huge* impact on the feel of your tone...

    Recording mono Dry, DI and stereo FX on seperate channels

    This is very straightforward when using USB. Record USB 1/2 for Stereo signal and USB 5 for DI. Analog, you'd record Out 1 LR for stereo and then Copy Input 1 to Out 3 in the setup menu and use Out 3L for DI. I'm not familiar with Cubase but I can't see why you wouldn't be able to switch...

    MIDI Clock Out

    Good catch on that whoever that was. I was conflating that with tap CCs (in some pedals, etc.)
  66. ccroyalsenders

    MIDI Clock Out

    It's a sysex message, not MIDI beat clock data. This would be for something like a MasterMind GT (or another unit that takes the Axe-Fx's proprietary sysex commands into account in its own firmware) to report the Axe-Fx III's tempo and tuner values accurately on it's own display.

    Why do I like Drive + Amp more than Amp drive?

    Mesas are notoriously difficult to dial. But they yield gorgeous results when you get them right. The models in the Axe-Fx are no different. @FractalAudio's presets in the factories and @austinbuddy's pack are great starting and ending points.
  70. ccroyalsenders

    Why do I like Drive + Amp more than Amp drive?

    This is more of a philosophical question than an Axe-Fx question, really. That said, as a guy who generally loves pedals for lead, try the USA lead, the USA IIC+, the Trainwreck, and any of the ODS models. Turn the overdrive parameter up a good bit. No drive pedal needed for an excellent lead...

    Input levels spike to red with 0 input gain

    Let me see if I can clear this up. The Instrument Level is to make it so the A/D converter hears the best signal it possibly can. So say you have a super low output Strat. You crank up the input level so that that Strat is hitting the converter at a level that is making sure it's well above the...

  75. ccroyalsenders

    Input levels spike to red with 0 input gain

    You want it hitting the red. This "gain" has zero effect on your tone or signal level hitting any blocks (until below 5%). It is simply to optimize SNR. Any adjustments you make to this input are automatically compensated back to unity in the AD before any processing. This is bar none the most...

    Dialing tones for use with IEMs

    This. But dial in the ears with a speaker in the room to feed audio back into the guitar. Otherwise it won't translate the way you want. Also try the Enhancer (try the Stereoizer type). I've ended up throwing it on almost every ears mix I've ever dialed.

    We do a ton of effects work, but it happens in tandem with everything else. Every section except the Amp in the Room features effects so really every other section could be called Effects in some way or another The Modifiers odyssey would be the closest to a dedicated FX section.
