    Question - Can you run the Axe-FX III as a modeler and 4 cable method at the same time?

    How is the ABY connected? You really wouldn't need it with a patch set up to switch between the outputs.

    Question - Can you run the Axe-FX III as a modeler and 4 cable method at the same time?

    To clarify, Axe amp plus effects chain and 5150 with effects chain, both active at the same time? The answer is yes, just takes some split routing.

    Did scene 1 get accidentally copied over to scene 2, or are seeing the blocks change without the sound changing?

    Can you use a matrix gt1000fx with a 1x12?

    Just don't turn the volume up too far and you'll be fine. I've done it with various 1x12's. If you max the GT and its input, then yes, you will murder the speaker.

    Never got the love for the Divided by 13 amps. What am I missing?

    I've found my best results with the /13 using an external overdrive (always on) and using the volume knob of the guitar for controlling the gain level. It works really well for clean to hard rock, with some nice singing lead tones. certainly not a real metal type of sound, but very versatile...

    Patch for octave down on low notes only?

    If you are sending all of your signal to the pitch block it will give the octave for all the notes in the signal. You could try a crossover block to filter out the higher HZ signal before it goes to the octaver.

    Axe-Fx III vs Helix

    To answer the OP. I have both, plus a IIXL+. I find it easier to get sounds I enjoy with the Fractal products. I can get sounds I like out of the Helix, but it takes more work and often complicated patch chains to get there. If I could only use one for the rest of my life I would pick...

    Stupid noob questions

    Have you added the appropriate output block in the preset? If you want to use output 3, you need an output 3 block. <question asked while typing...> Further, the output 1 knob will control output 1 and headphone out, that's just how the unit works.

    Line 6 vs Helix Floor vs Fractal Axe FX III

    Add me to the list of those who have a Helix and various Fractals that have an easier time getting good tones from the Fractal. Add to that, for me, the Fractal simply sounds and feels better when I have them both dialed in to a point where I don't think I can improve either.

    Inexpensive guitars

    I gigged for quite a while with a 200 series Laguna. The pickups were good, the neck was straight, a tuner change and it stayed in tune. I paid something like $200 for it and never had to worry about some drunk idiot wrecking it. I still like it.

    Is something wrong with my Axe-Fx II or me?

    In general the stock presets are built to work at/near gig volumes. If you're playing at a loud speaking volume they will seem pretty flat. Crank your listening volume up 95 decibels and they open up quite a bit. And yes, volume affects how we hear things. A preset that sounds spot on at 100...

    Is something wrong with my Axe-Fx II or me?

    OK, so the louder I play those clips, the better they sound. They don't sound particularly far off from a stock setting to my ears. For me the stock presets work best LOUD. I pretty much always tweak stock presets since I only use them at lower volumes noodling around at home.

    Which Axe should I Buy??

    With any new equipment you have to learn some things, so embrace it. Read the manual several times, it's very logical. The Axe III would be the easiest to learn simply because it sounds so good to begin with. You really don't need to dig into the deeper editing to get good sounds.
