    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 19.00

    I do for sure. Back in the day I was constantly trying different tubes on my Triple Recto, Marshall JCM800 and Splawn Quickrod.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 19.00

    For me it was the inherent noise you get when you completely turn off the gate. But not nearly as bad and quickly rectified by tweaking the gate.

    I'm one of those that noticed this as well but I've already readjusted the gate and all is good.

    its not all of my presents either. As you said it’s not that big of a deal but something changed. My go to - a Les Paul thru the same MKIV preset I’ve used for years - got really noisy after one of the betas (I was doing a lot of tracking last week so didn’t check out the beta updates until...

    OwnHammer Basketweave GNR

    For my main MK IV preset 2 of the 4 IRs I use are the Ownhammer GNR’s. I pair those with 2 stock Mesa cabs and I’ve kept that unchanged since owning a II, a II Ultra (or whatever the upgrade was called), a III Mk1 and a III Mk2.

    I literally just noticed this as well. Not a big deal but def need to tweak the input gate as even my non-noisy guitars seem noisy now.

    well maybe I'm incredibly lucky in my 10 years of being Fractalized but in that time period presets by @fremen, @2112 , @austinbuddy as well as the most recent stock presets by @Admin M@ have NEVER failed to translate well. And that's with an Axe2, Axe2XL, Axe3 and an Axe3 MkII.

    Yngwie Malmsteen - Rising force

    If I remember correctly he wasn’t the opener. I think it was “Black and Blue” and someone else. He was the headliner. WAY too ice picky loud.
  28. Gregmang

    Yngwie Malmsteen - Rising force

    same with me but it wasn’t opening for Maiden. It was also in 1987 in Colorado Springs and was TOO much. it’s the only concert I’ve left while it was still happening.

    Axe-Fx Firmware Release Version 17.02 Release

    I plead idiocy :) I investigated further and it turns out I had turned on a saturater in my DAW chain - which as you can imagine added unwanted distortion. The reason the two tracks sounded so different was because only one had the saturation. duh. I’ll just leave now quietly….

    i completely get that there was no changes in the modeling but indeed I hear it as well. To be clear I mostly hear it on heavier amps like the USA IIC+ varieties. There is a bit more “hair” there (what a horrible description) and it’s almost like a barely perceptible overlay of an almost fuzz...

    Some of the solo stuff is quite good and while he had a great assortment of top-notch drummers, Gavin was always sorely missed.

    WOO HOO ! Turns out the software for the interface took it upon itself to change routing of the breakout box which effectively attenuated the input signal. Reloaded a preset for CueMix that I had save at some point and like magic all is good. What an amazing group you guys are - thx for...

    Ya, I've spent a bunch of time looking at that as well - I wonder if the interface is going tits up...I can't find anything awry from a sw or settings perspective. Output thru the interface is normal and previously recorded audio out of my DAW at normal levels.
