    Guitar tuning / setup question

    Oh, hey guys! I recently became the owner of a new Ibanez PGMM guitar (a short scale for my kid). Not a bad guitar, but have made various modifications to get it playable.

    My FAS dream.. what's yours?

    I had a dream last night about FAS. I guess my brain decided it was time to treat me with something different to the endless dreams about my real job. Does anybody have some interesting FAS dreams to share? Mine went something like this: Hi, I'm a FAS employee. Not sure what my role is, but...

    Electromagnetic pest repellers - do they f with audio gear?

    Pretty random question, I know. And even after looking up a fair bit, still not sure if they actually are effective for their intended purpose lol. I'm just wanting to understand if the EM 'pulse' sent through the house wiring is something that is going to adversely affect my guitar playing or...

    I think Output 1 just died

    I only use the axe-fx II XL+ at home. Suddenly, nothing coming from Output 1, even though the Axe's VU says there is signal coming out. I'm hooked up to reaper. SPDIF is still working. Tried power cycling. I'm in Sydney - guessing I am going to have to pop the hood to see what happened...

    Creating Axe-fx compatible IRs from IK multimedia ARC2

    Hi guys I'd like to get back into home recording, but my new room is not ideal - bad shape (semi circle), walls have mostly windows and glass doors, so its not possible to put in corner traps. I have auralex panels in the places that aren't taken u by windows and they are doing a good job of...

    Footswitch help

    Hi Here is something that I can't figure out myself and need help on. I have a couple of footswitches that I would like to use in the pedal inputs but it seems that the axe-fx only recognises their open/closed states. This causes problems for me because the initial modifier state is not always...

    Hi My home recording PC is starting to fail and I am wanting a lappie this time around. The problem I have is that It is so hard to find a reasonably priced one with firewire (haven't seen any in fact) or an expresscard port so that I can still use my Saffire interface. Its a little more...

    Ownhammer Update?

    I think its time for Ownhammer to fill us in on what he's been up to. Too quiet by far on this forum, seeing as how he has been busting out various cabs lately - Diezel and now Engl. Please tell us more! I have always been been a fan of the Engl Savage model in the axe and recently I have...

    Bug? Am I crazy!? Axe-fx tuner half a step out!? Q2B3

    Can somebody on Q2B3 please check the tuner. Suddenly, all my guitars were sharp by half a step according to axe-fx. I tuned down, then noticed it sounds too flat, then checked with some reference material and yes, I am now definitely tuned to Eb, but the axe says its E. This appears to be...

    Violin (XL/XL+)

    Not to take anything away from Simeon's great work! I had a Violin patch on my Ultra for a long time and just recently ported it over to the Axe-FXII XL. It's pretty good IMO. I don't know who originally made it (so long ago now), but if you see your handywork in this patch, do shout out. The...

    Fishman Powerbridge / Powerchip question

    I had them installed in my old epiphone LP standard with a single TRS output jack. My question is - is it normal for this setup that when the battery drains, I can't play through the mag pickups anymore? I'm just hoping that there is some wiring issue that can be fixed, or do I need to go...

    IRs ARE Everything.. but don't forget about the pick!!

    Hey guys, Just thought I'd share some quick advice.. If you want to generally brighten / darken your tone, try changing your pick. Thinner pick > brighter tone Thicker pick > darker tone Its simple, it has a substantial impact on all types of guitar tones, and it might save you an hour or two...

    Dream Theater 2013 - The Looking Glass guitar tone

    Hey, this is my attempt at matching the new DT album tone using the Ultra and Ozone 4. I dunno why, but whenever I "match" a heavy tone, there is always some mids lacking. Well I just cranked the amp sim's mid control a bit after doing the match, but it doesnt compensate in the right way. I...

    Dave Mustaine on FAS website

    Guitar tone archive

    Hey guys, Just to start off, I don't actually use an axe-fx II, but I have used tone matching in my DAW and occasionally its useful, but mostly its just lots of fun. Anyway, I do own a meagre collection of guitars, and at times there has been struggles to get a good matched tone, for example...

    "Mega Rig" - Liquid Tension Experiment live

    Hi, I have generally played Les Paul style electric guitars for most of my "guitar life". Last year, I found myself wanting more out of a guitar, and decided to get something with a different and modern design, plus some bells and whistles. The EBMM JPX really hooked me. I was never a fan of JP...

    FCB1010 uno exp B stuffs with my tempo

    Hey, Can't work this out. I have "tempo tap" control set to Pedal 1 in the axe-fx. I control tempo with an external footswitch. But for some reason, the exp pedal B on my FCB1010 (midi CC 48 ) randomly changes the tempo does anybody have/had this problem?

    FCB1010 uno and tap tempo issue - help appreciated

    Hi, I have tap tempo set up for repeated PCs. It works great, but doing this also resets the on/bypass state of the effects to their default value. For example, I want to change the tempo to match the delay to some part I'm about to play, but doing that then switches the delay to it's...

    hmm.... non-axe-related phenomenon. Any suggestions?

    Hi, playing single notes on higher-gain patches. There is poor note clarity, almost like a series of pulses or beats that occurs shortly after picking. You can listen to the attached mp3 of a 2 second long direct recording of a single note (you may need monitors or headphones to hear well)...

    on/off switch for global EQ

    input volume zipper noise

    hi, I use an FCB1010 and have assigned input volume into the axe to be controlled by expression pedal A for all patches. When using external controllers for wah frequency etc, it is always good to assign some "damping" to avoid the "zipper noise", but as far as I know, this cant be done when...
