    Buzzing Fan

    Turned on my AXE II yesterday and a loud buzzing sound started right away and would not stop. I took the cover off and sure enough it was the fan. I imagine it is wearing out. Any ideas on replacement fans? I have send an email to Fractal tech support but no response yet.

    Loud POPPING when changing scenes

    After loading the new FW I found lots of presets were much louder and different sounding. The amps on the two presets that I use the most were very different and I re-selected them and tweaked them to get them close to the way I want them to sound. The other problem is that on those two...

    reloading amp model

    updated from 6 to 8 firmware model and soe amp models are out of wack. It says in the FW 7 notes to reloaded by 'deselecting' and 're-selecting' the desired model,... probably a dumb question but that is why I come here,... how is this done?

    the levels thing on the Utility page?

    I liked the new addition of the level meter on the utility page that helped to adjust and balance the volume output of the different presets - it does not work anymore with the new FW. Anyone know how to get it back online?

    Tone Match block,... duh.

    I have been using my nylon string acoustic with my band as we like to play some latin, rumba style stuff. I created a simple preset on the AXE FX that I switch over to when I change from my electric: COMP-PEQ-TUBEPRE-GEQ-DLY... It is a good tone and very much like the sound of the acoustic...

    Where the Frac is the preset mix page?

    I just updated from 15.03 and I hit layout for a particular preset that I wanted to adjust the overall volume of, went to page over to the 'mix' page so I could adjust the 'main' output,... not there. This is how I adjust the volumes between different presets. What the Frac is going on?

    FAS 6160

    I was auditioning a bunch of amp models since updating the FW and much to my surprise the FAS 6160 has become my go to lead amp - amazing. I never would have picked this one out of the many great amps in the AXE, but is it ever good. I just used my ears and didn't even know what I was playing...

    preset for acoustic guitar

    how do you set up a simple preset to plug your acoustic guitar into, either steel string or nylon string? I play acoustic in some songs and I would like to run it thru the AXE rather than the board so I can use effects and volume pedal as well. thanks!

    MFC artsy labels

    Hi guys, I decided to do up some fancy painted stomp labels for the MFC. I got a pack of magnetic business cards from an office supply store, they are the perfect size when cut in 1/2. I then just had fun with spray paint, and then I wrote the names with a white-out pen, also from the office...

    10.06 - 9v cabs

    Thanks Cliff! I was one of those that preferred the more slick polished sound (Cliff's description) of FW 9 for a couple of the high gain amps that I use. although I spent a lot of time tweaking to soften the edges of the new sound, which was a bit too bright, fizzy and biting for my...

    I have been searching the preset exchange for a smooth lead tone, similar to the one from the older firmware and factory preset versions on the Axe. I want it to be chewy and greasy and blendy and slick sounding,...if those adjectives help at all. thanks!

    so what's up with high gain stuff on the II?

    how do I get rid of the dotted line?

    trying to set up a wah at the front of the chain but when I plug one into the block, it comes up with dotted lines around it, meaning it is off, and I can't get it to work with my pedal (external 1). I know I have done this before with my Standard, and it must be simple - BUT I JUST CAN'T REMEMBER!

    pedal problem

    I have a Rocktron expression pedal that I am using for wah and to turn on and off Drive. The problem is the pedal turns off the volume of the entire preset when it is in the 'off' position, toe up. I know it must be a simple function that I am overlooking but I can't seem to find it... Help!!!
