    New user... and question about Foot Controller :)

    Hi all! New user in here from Portugal, a few hours away of buying and used AXE FX II (Mark I). :) Really excited!!! But I have on question... Since it's the Mark I/original version, it has the RJ45 connection for the Foot Controller. After having the AXE, I want to buy: - A simple/cheap foot...

    Wish EHX Polychorus

    Such a cool and unique pedal. Does a lot of stuff, from flange to chorus and a lot of really unique tones you only get from that pedal. It's all over Nirvana's In Utero album

    Hi everyone, I am looking to let go of my FM3 pedalboard set up. It was never gigged, only used about 2x month for the last year or so for practice. I have the boxes for the FM3, FC6 and Seymour Duncan PS 170. Everything is pretty much mint - the Fractal gear still has the plastic protection...

    Pairing Pedals with Amps and Cabs

    I generally use the Tube Screamer as a "Clean" drive with an Angle Severe 2 (as an example) per @yek to get a heavy Killswitch tone. My question is how to pair a Boss pedal (i.e. MT-2) with a clean amp/cab setup and let the pedal really drive the distortion/tone. I would think this should be...

    Using FX Loop and real pedals with the Axe FX II

    If I have an hardware OD pedal, is it possible to put it after the virtual Axe FX compressor block using the FX Loop? I was thinking of that chain: Guitar → Axe FX II Input 1 → Virtual Compressor block → FX Loop → Amp Block → Cab block → Reverb block → Output The Plumes OD pedal would be...

    I am a big fan of Fuzz pedals, and love the offerings in the FM3. Specifically the Bender Fuzz and Face Fuzz - these are the 2 I've discovered first that I am enjoying but no doubt the others are good too... In my arsenal is also a hardware Fuzz Factory and vintage BIg Muff, and both sound...

    Is there a way to attenuate volume (db) while maintaining optimal leveling?

    I’ve been studying (the very helpful) @rosh FX-III videos and he advocates leveling the output block so it ‘kisses’ the red in the output meter which makes sense. However, I set up a global volume pedal which controls the output block level parameter. It turns out (who knew?) that means the...

    Korg - Miku Pedal in AX3

    How to setup EV-1 as Wah?

    I just got the EV-1 pedal for Christmas and I'm having hard time understanding how to set it up. I have read the manual and it doesn't mention anything about setting the pedal up for WAH. I have also sifted through Leon's videos and he mentioned to plug the pedal into the "Pedal" port. However...

    Electro-Harmonix expression pedal experiences?

    I was just wondering if anyone has tried the new plastic pedals out yet. They’re cheap and lightweight and I like the adjustable ‘range’. I’ve no issue about them feeling plastic as long as the pot is linear, the throw long enough to be usable as a volume pedal or to blend effects in and they...

    How to make external pedal a block into the AX8?

    I have an AX 8 and I’m trying to use my external octave pedal - but the problem is when I change the settings I have to physically bypass the pedal.

    Wish Multiple effects on/off with 1 pedal

    I think this would be a small software change for the firmware (maybe a little more for the axe-edit). It would be great to assign 2 effects blocks to 1 pedal so that it switches both on/off with one click. I use 4 patches and they're all dry except for the lead scene. I would love to have my...

    Hi folks, new here - I'm running an AxeFX II (Mark I) and I am controlling it via the Behringer FCB1010. The outer right expression pedal is by default routed to control a volume parameter - but it seems it's an input parameter as it will also impact the gain of the tone. Considering I want...
