    Bug? MIDI CC#11 (Out 1 (Main) volume) problems

    Hi. I always set my AX8's main output volume to maximum to get the best signal into my preamp, which has a pad on it to control the signal level. When I try to use MIDI CC#11 to control the output volume, the guitar can still be heard if the value of CC#11 is ramped down to zero. Also, if I...

    Axe-Fx Looper & Beatbuddy? (MIDI Sync)

    Anyone using these two together? Is it possible to MIDI sync 'em? I use a Beatbuddy and an Infinity Looper and it works wonders; however, It would be great if the BB could sync with the Looper on the Axe. That way I could just take my Axe FX + BB to the gigs. Anyone?
