    AX8 plus H9

    I like mine. Not using midi since I typically keep them at one or two settings all the time for my primary needs. I might start using when I decide to start using more presets as opposed to a typical pedalboard layout. Also, the AX8 doesn't have reverse reverb.

    AX-8 10.00 Public Beta #4

    The 4th public beta within 3 days. That's a massive amount of work to take on. My only issue was the volume drop from 2 betas ago and haven't even played since due to time contstraints. Literally have only turned my AX8 on to do updates. Cliff and FAS, your work goes beyond appreciated. Thank...

    Wish Benson Monarch/Chimera amp+cab model

    I've been seeing videos and reading up on Benson amps and they seem like something worth looking in to. Different than Morgan amps as they seem to rely more on 6V6 power amps with solid-state rectifiers and being completely point-to-point wired. I heard a friend's Kemper profile of one and was...

    On the IR hunt

    Hey fellow AX-men/women I'm looking for a cab pack based on the Suhr Pete Thorn signature 2x12 cab. It's an oversized cab with G12H75 Creamback speakers. I did see one of the other cab packs that had a Suhr 2x12 but those were the G12-65's. I have his Div by 13 2x12 greenback IR that was on...

    AX8 V8.02 Released!

    Sorry, it's been a good minute since I've been on the forums! I'll find myself having to tweak the OUT2 knob sometimes during play. Some songs my H9's are perfectly audible then others are either too loud or too quiet.

    AX8 V8.02 Released!

    Anyone else notice fluctuating levels in the FX loop? I'm 98% positive it's user error but I've been tweaking my levels as I go and notice a drop in volume when using external FX. I keep tweaking my mix knob on my H9's just to make sure but no dice.

    Trying to convince indie kids AX8 doesn't sound like shit...

    I completely respect and understand where you're coming from. That's how I've always been-it's their dime. At the same time, I'm trying to make the process as convenient as possible for myself since they're not able/wanting to pay much. I don't believe in undervaluing yourself. It sets things...

    Trying to convince indie kids AX8 doesn't sound like shit...

    Some of them are hardly able to pay much of anything. I honestly like recording and mixing and like helping local music. The attitude received from some of them makes me want to stop doing that altogether. It was just a suggestion and not a dealbreaker for recording.
  11. ghost219

    Trying to convince indie kids AX8 doesn't sound like shit...

    Yes. Under the guise of sound. These guys judge people on the guitars they play. Not from a snobby point of view but what their scene is about. Simply put: they're hipsters.
  12. ghost219

    Trying to convince indie kids AX8 doesn't sound like shit...

    my complaint is they won't even give it a chance. For loud sources like guitars and drums, it's location based recording. I'll only do vocals and direct stuff at my place. I'm all for people using their own stuff. It's just when I don't charge much since most of these bands are broke, I want...

    Man, I'd love to. They're keen to the ways of the DI.

    Trying to convince indie kids AX8 doesn't sound like shit...

    I've found that they feel so confident about their tone that re-tracking isn't an issue. If they want to shoot themselves in the foot, that's on them. Not to be a dick but I don't want to spend any more time on their tone than they do.

  17. ghost219

    Trying to convince indie kids AX8 doesn't sound like shit...

    For other bands, yeah. I do. These kids know what DI is for and they want to fight it as much as possible because it's "fake digital".

    Trying to convince indie kids AX8 doesn't sound like shit...

    I've been in the process of recording local bands (mostly younger indie bands) and most of them insist on using their combo amps but without the space to really crank them (I live in an apartment). Naturally, I offer using my AX8 for tracking guitars and bass. That's when they freak out and say...

    Feedbacker effect available?

    That's the thing-I have no idea how it was produced. All I can think of is a feedback looper with a delay since it has that cycled volume build up. It's def not a reverb/delay hold (like the EHX Freeze) because the notes decay naturally, only to be brought up with the effect. Unlike the Freeze...

    What case/gig bag do you use and why?

    From what I've read, Delta is really good at letting people carry guitars on as long as it's within a certain size and weight limit. I'm now looking at the Gator Polyfoam LP case. It seems small enough to carry on but just barely.

    Wireless for AX8

    Shure GLXD user here and it's been flawless. Thinking about giving the L6 G70 and Wic by PRA a shot. The G70 seems pretty appealing because of it's quad antennae and super low latency. Other than that, the Shure is amazing with battery life and they're rated to last a very long time without issues.

    Parallel blocks and their purpose

    Yup. Just like in mixing when you have aux tracks, always set the FX to full wet to blend the send. I get that. I just wasn't aware there was a "send fader". Now, this makes sense in regards to the NOT wanting to blend FX tails. Thanks!
  41. ghost219

    Parallel blocks and their purpose

    I know this is such a newbie question but I'm honestly trying to figure out why you'd use parallel blocks as opposed to a straight line of blocks. Is it for actual parallel processing? Because a lot of these FX have a mix knob.

    You don't have a dedicated line-out on your soundcard. You need something that'll output AS A line-out specifically. Make sure your track output is set properly, which means you'll sometimes have to start at -18 db on your track fader as that's what's typically suggested for analog gear. You...

    IEM Systems-What do you use/recommend?

    Negative. I have friends that use the psm300 and they love it. Granted, they're using custom molds but just triples. There's something going on with your mix or you don't have a tight seal on your buds.
