    4CM noise, any other setup has no noise

    Hi, my Axe Fx 3 Mk. 2 is very weird. I want to use the 4cm in order to get the most of the fx processing, and because that way I can also use some clean patches via IN1-OUT1 (essentially making it an A/B switch between my analog rig and a a digital rig). When I use it only as post, or only the...

    Would I need a rack?

    Hi! I have never owned a rack mounted unit, so forgive my ignorance. If I bought the AxeFx 3 it would sit on my desk. Should I still get some type of rack to mount it on? Are there advantages/disadvantages? Wouldn’t a rack cover the air exhaust of the unit (the holes on its side)?

    Axe3 Tonematch IR won’t appear for Ax8 use

    I made an acoustic guitar tone match on my Axe Fx3 and exported it as a user cab. I then exported the user cab as a .syx file. In Ax8 cab browser, this file can not be seen in the directory. In AxeFx3 cab browser, it can be found as expected. Is there a compatibility issue here, and perhaps...

    FC USB Port for Axe Edit (Wish)

    I wonder if it will be possible to access Axe Edit or FracPad by plugging a PC or tablet into the FC 6/12 USB port. Since FasLink II supports bi-directional communication, this seems to be quite a feasible possibility. I’m aware that the USB port is listed as “reserved for future use,” and...

    RJM GT-22 plus Axe-Fx III — How do you handle 8-scenes?

    I’ve got an RJM GT-22 and Axe III. I frequently accept the default settings that get imported from the “Get All Presets” function. This works alright for presets with 6 scenes or less. But many presets use all 8 scenes. How do handle this? The device only has the 6 buttons on the bottom...

    Another "just got it !"...

    Hi all, I've been on the fence for an Axe FX for quite some time, but was never convinced of the practicalities of using it live and how to combine it with my other gear and tube amps. For recording I was too addicted to my VG99 (which, in it’s own right, is also a fantastic piece of gear if...

    Logic Pro X and Axe-Fx III compatibility?

    Is there a compatibility issue with the AxeFx III and Logic? I have continually received a notification on the screen stating that the 'Volume "LaCie" is full', referring to the external hard drive I'm using, which has plenty of space on it. This seems to happen mostly when I have a track that...

    Moog Sub 37 and Axe-Fx III

    Scene Switching Damping Parameter

    I'm not sure if this is even possible but having the ability to morph from one scene to the next with damping would be epic. I think I have heard this discussed but I believe it was before the III came out. I wasn't sure if there would be a way to do this now.

    Why no pick attack?

    I'm moving from a II to a III and have used the pick attack adjustment on all my main presets. Why was this removed? Is there a way to replicate it on the III?

    Re-amping in Logic

    Could someone explain the process of re-amping in Logic with the Axe-FX III? I have attempted to re-amp my direct signal in Logic using essentially the same methods by which I would use for the II XL+, with the exception of setting up my D.I. track as outputs 5 and 6 instead of 1 and 2...

    Tone Stack Location and its effect on Tone (Pre,Post,Mid,End)

    I started messing around with the tone stack location on the Atomica High. I switched it to MID and I really liked how it seemed to cut through the mix more. Does anyone know in short what each location (pre, post, mid, and end) will do to your tone? Also does anyone use them? Some times I can...
