    Really spent some time dialing in this spanky distortion tone! All Axe FX 2 in this one. Let me know what you think!

    D.I-ing Guitars with FX Loop

    Hey guys, I'm tearing my hair out here. I moved my entire set up to work on something in another place. I've come back and set everything back up (in my eyes exactly the way it was set up before). But now when I try to record D.I guitars I'm getting no signal from the Axe FX FX Loop? (Using an...

    Need help installing Axe FX drivers...

    Having some trouble installing the AXE drivers. I keep getting these errors. Can anyone help? I never had this issue installing the drivers before. Also what is XMOS and how is it related to Fractal?

    Coil Split Distortion

    Really wanted a spanky tone for this intro. Split my Dimarzio Ionizer pickup and put it through the friedman amp and blam! I'm pretty happy with how this tone turned out. Let me know what you think!

    Getting the best of both worlds (Axe FxII and Analog Amp)

    Hi there, Just a quick question and maybe someone can let me know how they go about this setup that I have in mind for my Axe Fx II and other gear. Currently I use my Axe FX II into a Carvin TS100 poweramp. I am considering purchasing a Victory Amplifier and cabinet and run in stereo with this...

    Boomy rig

    Just got my Axe Fx2. Sounds promising, but I got a really big problem with too much low end. If I turn off cab moddeling, all distrotion sound thin and fizzy. (Had same problem with the Ultra). If I leave it on, the Axe Fx sounds better, but very boomy (lack of better word). Power amp simp on or...

    Calibrating EXP Pedal with AXE FX II

    I recently bought a dunlop volume x pedal for a different pedal board but I would like to use this pedal as another expression pedal in addition to my FCB midi foot controller. I hooked up the dunlop via quarter inch cable to the back of the axe fx where it says pedal 1. I know I go to I/O and...

    Taylor Acoustic Tone Match

    Hey guys, made this tone after messing around with some Taylor guitar recordings I did at Guitar Center. I blended it with the USA Clean Amp and some parallel reverb and delay. Let me know what you think!

    I just have to say...

    Holy crap! This thing is nothing short of amazing. I have been playing guitar for something like 13 years and I have played everything from a Line 6 POD XT, to boutique Fuchs amps and this thing just does it for me! I bought an Axe FX II (MK I), Matrix GT1000FX, MFC-101 and I play through a...
