    Wish Separate Power Amp Block

    Or, at least a way to insert blocks in between preamp and power amp. Seeing as this is how effects loops are implemented On standard amps, I wonder why this is not a feature in Axe Fx routing.

    Adding an H9 in the Fx loop and going duel out.

    I am setting up my AX8 and I plan on running duel outs, one to front of house and one to a cab onstage. My question is does anyone know how to set up my H9 using the fx block in my ax8 and simultaneously retain the ability to run duel outputs described above.

    Wish Add second FX Loop option

    My pedals run mono in my FX Loop. I have a left and right FX loop send and return. It would be pretty great if you added a second FX Loop block that when used would pull audio from L/R send/return as if they were a mono 1 & 2. This would allow me to use an external reverb for huge space sounds...

    I just tried MG15 CDR as a PA Speaker

    Hey all, I've been using AX8 with headphones and record with my sound card since I got it. Today I tried connecting 'FX send' on the AX8 to the 'CD in' on Marshall MG 15 CDR and I think it sounds alright. I just want to ask if it's ok as long as I keep gain at reasonable levels or will I...

    AX8 - FX Loop / Scenes access from front panel??

    Hello, Can someone please tell me how to access the FX Loop Block 'scenes' settings from the AX8 pedal menu? I can only seem to adjust levels from the AX8 edit software on the laptop. The 'scene' tab/settings are for adjusting individual scene levels from within the FX Loop block. Thanks.

    [Solved] sound quality decreases when monitoring through DAW. Normal?

    I've had the axe fx ii for a couple weeks. I'm able to create great sounding patches, but when I am tracking in my daw (ableton live 8) the sound quality noticeably decreases as opposed to jamming straight out of the axe fx. In the daw it sounds tinny, digital, hollow... etc. I'm using the axe...

    What Happened to the FX Loop Block?

    As I looked at the back of the new Axe FX 3 online, I did not notice a "send/return" like the 2 has. In addition, the FX Loop block graphic is missing from the list of "blocks" in the information regarding the Axe FX 3. I notice there are more inputs/outputs, so how would you route external...

    After reading about the AX8, I decided to keep my octaver and reverb pedals to use with it. When the AX8 got here, I plugged them into the FX loop but it was super quiet.

    Input 2, Output 1/2 modes in relation to fx loop useage

    When using another piece of gear in stereo through the fx loop does input 2 mode really determine the output setting of your gear in the loop. And does output 2 mode (send) determine the input setting of your gear. Basically since send is under output 2, and return is under input 2. I have...

    Is it possible to use xlr and 1/4 FX loop connections simultaneously?

    If I had two xlrs in the return of the fx loop stereo, and then also had two quarter inch cables plugged into the return what would happen? Or if I had all four xlrs in the send/returns with four 1/4 inch cables would things work when only using four total in any combination of two sends and two...
