    Seeking a simple method for iPhone video recording using audio from Axe-FX III

    Back in 2015 (which might be the last time I created a video) @Mark Day posted a method for recording video content directly into the iPhone using the Tascam iXJ2. I used it successfully then but now find that the unit is no longer supported (the TASCAM app used for it is defunct) and in any...

    Looking for best online guitar instruction to improve technique

    As of yesterday the OL and I are empty nesters. I have the need, motivation, and--at last--the time to bring much-needed improvement to my playing skills. There does not seem to be a teacher around who's available when I need them to be, so I think I'm stuck with virtual instruction. I have a...

    Please help with X-Load and Axe-FX III: No return signal

    On the meters page I can see signal passing through chain up to and including Output 3. No signal at all at Input 3 block (or after, of course). My Out 3 knob on front panel is turned up to 2 o'clock. I have a FAS humbuster cable (black end) running out from Output 3 on back panel into JVM 410...

    Trying to use a plugin "live" with Axe-FX signal chain

    Actually this is quite timely because I have a (probably stupid) question that will likely reveal my utter DAW noobosity. I just recently downloaded the Sunset Sound Reverb plugin and opened it in Logic Pro X. I was hoping to use it live, essentially at the "end" of my Axe-FX III signal chain...

    Strange FM3 Behavior. Seeking Advice Please.

    I'm running latest beta FW and latest FM3-Edit. MacOS 10.15.4 (Catalina). I created a preset with a Friedman in Amp channel A and a JM45 in channel B. There's also a pitch block with a custom shifter in one channel and a dual harmony in another. Obviously the goal was to use the different...

    [Solved] All 3 Footswitches Read "59 Bassguy" After FW Update

    Turning the Value knob changes presets as expected, and FM-3 Edit shows full preset list as expected, but with the Preset Layout active all 3 footswitch windows show 59 Bassguy, no matter what preset I'm on, and regardless of whether I bank up (by holding FS3) or down (by holding FS1). I tried...

    [Solved] Trouble calibrating expression pedal (EV-2)

    Question about color ring for toggle switches

    I have an FC-12 switch set to toggle between Scenes 5 and 6. If I'm on, say, Scene 4 and I activate that switch, Scene 5 becomes active and the color ring lights up. If I activate that switch a second time Scene 6 becomes active (as desired) and the color ring goes dark. I realize this is...

    So How Do YOU Filter by Color?

    Okay this post is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, I'll admit. After all, grouping amps by color is, in the end, arbitrary.
