    8 Scenes of Cleans - For Pedal Demos. This is what I use and people seem to dig it.

    I gave up using 'real' amps for pedal demos a couple of years ago, unless specifically asked to use them by the manufacturer. Even the pickup guys - Jason Lollar, Chris Kinman, Mick Brierley, SD ... they're all happy for me to use classic amp equivalent models in the Axe-FX III. I believe it's...

    Is this achievable within the XL+?

    Hi fellow forumites, I came across this post in Instagram and man, I was blown away! Is there someone capable of guiding me through the process, or sharing a preset or insight ti get something as fabulous as this in the trusty Axe FX II? Here's the link: Cheers!

    Modern/Pop Sound design tutorials

    Hi Guys, I’m absolutely noob in preset creation . All I found on YouTube is just metal sound tutorials. Can you please help me with this?

    HIPOWER Jumped, Fuzzes, Univibe, space.... Preset and Vid

    Based on the last two Marshall-based fuzz-fun videos and presets, I present to you some DR103 lurve. Thank you to Cliff for the unbelievably beautiful model (and machine) and Yek for his Univibe settings. Rock on. Preset: http://axechange.fractalaudio.com/detail.php?preset=6435

    Classic Marshall, old-school fuzz. Demo video and a couple of presets.

    In an effort to make everyone who doesn't own one jealous, lustful, amazed, or all three with the Axe-FX III, I've attempted a take on the old Marshall/fuzz box combos. It's not easy because of the impedance thing but I ran the input at 90k (thank you AustinBuddy!) and had a LOT of fun and, I...

    Orange Kay by Daniel Lanois

    Just heard Daniel Lanois' Orange Kay (on YouTube's West 54th Sessions), and it's based on the 60's orange-colored Kay Fuzztone pedal. Would really like to figure out how to duplicate that tone and dynamic on the AX8 using the EV-1 pedal. Any ideas?

    More fuzz rock - Cameron Big Muff Micro Boost stuffs - Preset included

    This is a short idea I used to test a couple of variations within a new preset I put together. I used the Cameron CCV 1A amp model with the Pi Fuzz Op-Amp and a Micro boost into a 50/50 blend of ML Zilla All Mix and ML Brit PR75 SM57-M160 01 (CP20). I did two versions of the signal chain, I'd...

    Strat > Superverb blues (live video)

    Probably my favourite song to play live these days - this was from our CD Release Party. Really digging the Strat tone I'm getting from the AX8! Kicked in the fuzz face when things get hairy about 4 min in.

    ODS-100 Clean with the 6.02 Muff. Yeah!

    Well, it's sure working for me! Here's a taste. I kick the Pi Fuzz in at about 1:36.

    Low tuned heavy fuzz rock - Citrus Bass + ML USA Bass, Brit Pre/Fryette hybrid + ML Zilla

    This is a test of my "Super Fuzz" preset which I've adapted to my current go to IRs to see how it sits in the mix. I still need to write another section to slot in before the ending, so this isn't a finished piece yet. More of a test run. The guitars are a Brit Pre with a Fryette tonestack...

    Where do I put wah block in my preset?

    Hi, musicians I hope to know where do I put wah block in a preset. I usually use signal chain as following, 4CM/ pre 4/ post 4 Comp - Drive 1 - Drive 2 - PHR - CHO - DLY - REV Also, at real pedal board, I knew that Fuzz should go first of chain. What should I do in FX8 with wah and...

    Pumpkins Siamese Dream Album Distortion?

    Hi everyone, was looking around for a Siamese Dream distortion from the Smashing Pumpkins. I know they layered guitars a lot for that album but has anyone been able to come close to that huge distortion? Only other thing I know is they loved using different distortion and fuzz pedals instead of...

    Pi Fuzz Gone Mad?

    Hello All! I'm having a weird issue with the pi fuzz, it's beyond full blast pretty much regardless how I set it up, at default settings it is ridiculously fuzzy. I don't remember it being like this before. I'm on Quantum 2.0 and I've tried reloading the firmware and also resetting the system...
