    Using 3 powered cabs with the AX8?

    i've been using a pair of alto ts210 cabs with my ax8 and I love them for clean. I tried several big name boutiques and KSC K12 and in the end for jazz and for cleans, I prefer the altos. I don't want to get into a discussion about how I need to upgrade these speakers. For me, the power to...

    Wish Better spring reverb

    When auditioning some of the dedicated spring reverb pedals such as Ventris or Flint, the reverb sounds more rich and "authentic" than the spring reverb on the Fractal. (Or maybe I just don't have the parameters set right?) I'm also using reverb at the end of the chain after the speaker so maybe...

    How to get a wider stereo sound without delay or chorus?

    years ago, i used to use a twin amp setup with a boss RV2 or RV3 going into two amps and the sound was wide and glorious. I've tried to accomplish the same thing with the AX8 but setting the reverb's stereo width to 100% doesn't give the same effect. Any hints would be appreciated.

    Bought a Kemper!

    So, lately I was feeling a bit uninspired with my AX8 and I really missed the MBritt Robben Ford Dumble sound from when I had a kemper about 2 years ago. So, I convinced myself that the kemper sounded better than axefx and bought one from a store in NYC. It was about $2k new with the...

    Can no longer connect over USB after latest windows update

    If I reboot, I can connect with as8-edit for a single edit session but as soon as I do *ANYTHING* on the ax8 such as switch an effect on or off, the unit disconnects and I can no longer connect to it. And another weird thing is that if I run ax8-edit, i'll hear the disconnect chime followed by...

    Switching between ax8 and SY300?

    Not sure if this is the right place for this query. I am using an SY300 synth in front of the axefx. Due to the cabinet modeling, the synth doesn't sound good going through the ax8 so I have it setup so that for I run the synth through it's own FRFR(2) via the sub output on the SY300 and the...

    how to make fine adjustments of parameters on the unit

    Simulating guitar tone control?

    Is there an eq setting I can use to simulate rolling off the guitar tone control? One of my guitars doesn't have one and I usually take it down to 6 or 7 for fusiony leads. I've tried a low pass filter and that sort of works but doesn't really sound the same.

    Secret weapon (replacement for FRFR)

    So, recently I bought an Epifani UL112 bass speaker cab. It's a full range bass cab with a 43Hz - 16kHz frequency response. I bought it along with a GK MB500 amplifier to use for bass. On a whim, I plugged my Axefx into and it it's got a killer sound for guitar. I like it much better than some...

    Global EQ

    How do I get to it? I find that at gig volumes, due to the fletcher Munson and possibly eq characteristics of my monitors, I get really loud, booming bass. So I'd like to have a global eq I can switch on for gigging or loud volumes without having to tweak individual patches.
