    One killer dream album - Artists you'd like to see do a collaboration album

    So I was going through my catalog of music this morning at the office and thought, man how cool would it be to have some of these amazing musicians do a collaboration album together. I know some of them have worked with each other a few times, but I mean a full album with all of them working on...

    Which Midi Keyboard would be best for me?

    So for Black Friday, I bought some more software for my DAW. Got the Nashville EZX and EZKeys Small Upright Piano stupid cheap! I'm looking for a Midi Keyboard to use with programming drums and possibly some Piano parts. I'm not really familiar with the Midi Keyboards, but the Point & Click...

    Bug? MFC-101 MKII bug with Axe FX II XL w/ Q4.0???

    So I updated to Q4.0 last night. First thing I noticed was that when I used the tuner on the Axe, it shows up with some of the dots out of place something like this ......>E <....... like there is a gap in between the arrows and the note being tuned to. So the next thing I notice after...

    New Ink Day!

    I have been wanting my son's name somehow incorporated into a tattoo. Finally decided what I wanted and had time to draw it out on my computer. Printed it out the size I wanted and took it to my artist. Very pleased with the outcome.

    Acoustic Treatment of Room

    So things are changing in my household as my lady and I make plans to move in together... o_O I've moved my Desk and Axe FX out of my room and put into my spare room where I have my work bench and weight bench. The room isn't all that big, but everything fits and functions just fine. Its...

    Check your Amp block balance..

    Updated to Quantum 1.02 tonight and my "Y" state amps sounded bad in my presets. I dialed and twiddled for about 45 min and it was puzzling the mess out of me. The way I have my presets setup is that "X" state is clean, "Y" state is gain. The gain state sounded muffled, no clarity, no balls. I...

    Working on improvising skills, any good places for backing tracks?

    I've been working on my improvising skills a lot lately while learning theory somewhat. It has helped quite a bit having a backing track to put those notes to use to see/hear how it all goes together musically. As I'm learning more, I wan't to have much more variety of styles to practice with...

    Knockin' On Heaven's Door 1st Solo - FW18.12 & Cab Pack 7

    Haven't played much over the last month due to work being crazy busy this time of year along with other things in life. Was browsing around online for backing tracks to jam to and found a track that was edited to cover just the 2 solo sections of the GnR version of Knockin' on Heaven's Door. It...

    SHURE GLXD16-Z2 thoughts?

    Wanting to go back to wireless in my home because I like the freedom. Do any of you have any experience with the sound/build quality of the Shure GLXD16-Z2? There is a guy local who is selling off most of his gear to pay bills and what not. He is asking $300 for it. Thoughts? Thanks, Chris:)

    EV-1 just arrived!

    Man this thing is well built and super smooth. Won't get to use it til this weekend, but can't wait! It is pretty heavy for an expression pedal and pretty huge too! Perfect for my big shoe to fit on without hanging off every direction! The packaging is the best I've ever seen in any product...

    Gruv Gear FretWraps?

    New GIGWRX labels day!

    These actually came on Tuesday, but life's responsibilities kept me too busy all week to be able to put these on. These are my second set from GIGWRX and they are top notch just like the first set. I highly recommend this brand of labels for your MFC. Bill and Anthony are great people to deal...

    Suggestions for New Music?

    I've been doing a lot of traveling lately during the day, back and forth, here and there for business purposes. While I have 32GB of music on my USB in my car, I keep going back to the same artists more than the rest. For the last few months, I have been stuck in a rut with the same artists (not...

    Axe FX II XL possibly defective?

    This problem has been going on since I got the unit. I hear crackling and popping coming through my left monitor. At first I thought it was a bad XLR cable so I replaced it. Same thing. Swapped the monitors around and it still did it. Then I just chalked it up to interference from some outside...

    Usable feedback is so easy to obtain with firmware 15.02!

    I know everyone has been raving about fw15.02 since it came out. I finally had the chance to update last night. I redid my patches from scratch, and holy cow, the amount of usable musical feedback was unreal.. so nice and easy to obtain! Pretty much amp & cab only with slight reverb and delay...

    Am I the only one who doesn't use Axe Edit?

    Just curious if I'm the only one on this boat not using Axe Edit. I know nearly everyone here uses it constantly. I've used it once to export a ".blk" file and that was it. I use the front panel to adjust everything. I use Fractal Bot for transferring Presets, IRs, Firmware, and backing up...

    Dual Recto patch for XL users

    For the guys with an XL. Here's my Dual Recto patch. It sounds good to me through studio monitors in my room for jamming. Haven't tried it at gig volumes so it might not work for some of you tone wise. Also, I'm using medium output passive pickups, so if you are using high output or actives it...

    Can Axe Edit & Fractal Bot convert AxeFx II IRs to IRs for AxeFx II XL?

    Since I'm new to this and just got my XL yesterday, I'm interested in trying out other IRs as I get more familiar with the XL. I was searching the forum on this yesterday and found a thread where Cliff states that the Fractal Bot and Axe Edit programs should be able to convert normal AxeFx II...
