    Axe-Fx 3, HS8 Studio Monitors and a Sonic Epiphany

    Good monitors are critical in making your Axe Fx translate properly to a "well-tuned" P A. I play with IEM's live and it sounds the same as when I dial my sounds in at home. To be able to get a realistic level, set your monitors to at least 94 db SPL C weighted at home. A few months ago I...

    Infinite Sustain Help

    One of the best sounding options is the fernandez sustainor pickup. But it requires a bit of modification to your guitar. Coming in at second place would be the Digitech Freqout. And in third place, the pitch block called feedback simulator.

    The Power of Pre-EQ

    The names of the blocks pretty much explain what they do. such as EV to GB, EV 12's to greenbacks, greeny is to approach the peter green tone, Tie Down is Tie your mother down. etc. The idea here is an offering to give your Axe FX a new pallet of tones to add to your arsenal. Try them as your...

    Check out this video, it will help. Use the best microphone and preamp you have to capture the sound of your acoustic guitar. The better Mic/Pre setup you use the better the results.

    How to assign boost of amp to an external switch?

    if you want to be able to switch it on, it can only be done with your volume pedal as you're doing now or in a scene. if you want it on all the time build a patch with the boost switch on. Je parle Francais si cest plus facile pour vous.

    Where would you start for early Santana tones?

    I can't remember where I got this from, but it should get you close enough. Tweak the sound depending on your guitar, pickups, and setup. From my II XL + use fractool to import to your Fractal product

    Imported preset levels to II XL+s 6 db

    No I’m also Importing from my presets in II XL + patches and third party sources like fremen, Austin buddy and axe change. All of my presets are abnormally low. I’m wondering if it’s the unit itself that has an issue.
  69. Techboy57

    Imported preset levels to II XL+s 6 db

    I really don’t think it has to do with Fractool only, every preset I bring in either from a third-party or saved in my library, the levels are lower than previous when I had my II Mk II.
  70. Techboy57

    Imported preset levels to II XL+s 6 db

    As a sound guy and guitar player myself, My view is if the FOH guy has to get too cute with the EQ there is one of two problems or worse yet, both. 1- The PA system is not properly tuned, then corrections will have to be made to all channels where the problems exist. 2 - The sound coming from...

    Can I be 'selfish' with my IEM tone?

    Companders can wreak havoc with frequency response of in ears. A typical 12” speakers response usually drops off drastically below 80 Hz and above 5000 Hz, so using low and high pass filter will clean up the muck and fizz in IEM’s.
  90. Techboy57

    Can I be 'selfish' with my IEM tone?

    if your sound is well dialed in on your fractal and the PA is properly tuned, the FOH tech shouldn't have to do much to your sound, maybe a bit of high pass and low pass filtering that's it. You can have your cake and eat it too, but it means getting your sounds and levels right, that takes time...
