    50 watts vs 1000 watts

    Hi folks, After years of close shaves I've succumbed and will be selling my tube amp setup and buying an Axe-Fx III. I use a 100w head into a 2x12 and I like 100w heads for their headroom. I've been having run-ins with friends about this and they trot out the classic "you don't need 100 watts...

    Problem with MIDI control/program change of Axe-Fx 3

    Hi everyone, I use a computer to send midi commands to my axe-fx3 to switch scenes and presets. It works, but I just can't make it seemless. I've created my presets and scenes so that when I strum a chord and then switch between scenes using the Nav buttons on the Axe-Fx, the switching is...

    Urgent help! Axe-Fx 3 USB Drive failure

    I just came home just now and found that the computer driver of my fx3 showed Disconnected and it couldn't connect. I'm pretty sure that I connected the USB cable, and tried to change a cable, but the connection still fails. It is also possible to reinstall the driver, and restore the system...

    In this video I'll show you how to use the Tone Match function of Axe-Fx3 to "profile", or better "capture the impulse response" of an acoustic instrument, in this case my Takamine Limited Edition 1999 acoustic guitar. Usually the Tone Match is used to capture the tonal characteristics of a real...

    Rack case etc for Axe-Fx III

    I'm sure this must have been discussed, but newb me can't find it... What rack cases are folks using with an Axe III? I assume I'll need room for a power conditioner and probably a patch panel, both potentially around back to keep it smaller if that's feasible. In general small is good, not...

    Preset Default

    I have posted this question to the Facebook page and emailed support, however so far no one has been able to come up with a solution. Whenever I restart my FXIII, I always get returned to the 000 Preset, never to the one I was last using when I shut down the unit. I am told the unit should...

    Supremo Trem (Supro 1624) is AMAZING!

    I recently discovered the Supro 1624 in the Axe Fx III. HOLY CRAP! It blows the Vox/Morgan style amps away so easily. It was a tad too bright at first but get the high cut up a bit and you are in proper 70s rock zone. Anybody else use this amp often? Any tips/tricks I should try? I'm using my...

    Wish Option to Auto Increment Block Channel with Scene

    Please delete this if I have failed to catch this in the manual. A lot of times when I am creating a preset I tie the block's channel number/letter to the current scene. For example on my amp block, I'll usually have scene 1 be a distorted sound, scene 2 might be a mid gain sound, and scene 3...

    Importing IRs (and Presets) using FractalBot

    Here is a very short demo of how to use the 'FractalBot' utility to import my IRs (and Presets) into the Axe-Fx III. I am getting a lot of emails about how to do this without the 'Axe-Manage Cabs' tool in Axe-Edit III. This will work fine until all of the functions in Axe-Edit III are finished.
