    Quirky behavior running Axe edit with Midi controller

    I'll try to condense this: Axe fx connected Mac via USB. Midi controller (MC6) connected to Axe with a 7 pin midi cable. I usually play with Axe edit always running. Before my current setup i was using the FCB1010 with Eureka Prom (two cable setup) and when I press a block on/off it would...

    Programming Drums - AD, Superior et al

    curious how most people program drums on their DAWS...aside from micing up a real drummer of course. I'm mainly just a hack hobbyist and drums are my weakest point. I can finger drum decently enough and get basic timing. I'm looking for a simple setup that would allow me to use, preferably, a...

    My Axe-centric studio room

    It's Friday and thought I'd share few pics of my Axe Fx rig that I just finished setting up in my new place. I recently made the addition of the new pedal board using the MC6 as my main midi controller. Axe Fx is the best purchase ever. Rock on brothers and sisters

    MC6 to scroll presets on Axe FX II

    Just assembled my new pedal board with the MC6 as main controller for the Axe Fx alongside 3 mission expression pedals. I understand how to program the essentials: scenes, IA's etc but struggling with how to program the MC6 to increase/decrease by a value of say 1, 5 or even 10 based on whatever...

    Axe + Acoustic DI (Mesa Rosette)

    If this is in the wrong area feel free to move to Lounge... Just saw the new preamp pedal from Mesa, the Rosette. Wondering how many here use Acoustic with the Axe Fx; do you just go direct thru the Axe as your DI or would you see any use in a product like the Rosette here. Redundant? This is...

    MC6 + behringer fcb1010 eureka??

    This seems like a specific enough question for a new thread. I just got my MC6 in the mail today and man does it look and feel sweet. I might be overlooking something here but not quite sure of the order of which i should have it connected with my Behringer FCB1010 (eureka prom latest). I've...

    Atomic CLR Heat sink

    See the discolouration on the one monitor. Wondering if anyone has experienced this and if so, is this a problem? I haven't experienced any functional issues with this monitor yet but a bit concerned. Overheating? I just noticed this during my move this month.

    pickup swap on a EBMM Axis

    Looking for some ideas here. I have gone through a number of swaps over the years with my Axis. I will always regret selling the OEM pups. Currently I have Suhr Doug Aldrich set loaded and they are very hot and compressed. I've quite enjoyed them but looking or something with less output and...

    Line 6 releases new Spider V...

    I can't keep track of all their products. I was there at the beginning with the original kidney bean and a few to follow. Not sure what's under the hood but diggin the UI of their new products. An Axe FX motor inside would be fantastic.

    This is a huge diversion for me in guitar choice. Although this is a 2014 Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro, I've never owned a Gibson style guitar ever. I've always been a Ernie Ball Music Man or guitars with tremolo system kinda guy mostly. I picked this up locally for a decent price and was...

    Been trying various methods of recording with my Axe II. Typically I have used analog recording via my Saffire Pro 40 with decent results. I have been wanting to use the digital domain and over the weekend fought with getting spdif to work with no success. I have poured over numerous threads and...
