    Output Routing for Logic Pro X (Using Output 2 Vs Output 1 for Stereo Mixing) - SOLVED (Accessibility Settings)

    I'm wondering how everyone is routing their Axe FX III within Logic Pro X when using the Axe III as their interface. I know a lot of people use additional audio interfaces in conjunction with their III, but I prefer to keep a simple setup. I spend the majority of my time mixing, playing over...

    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...

    FM3 routing question

    Hi Everyone, my first post here. I’m contemplating getting an Fm3. I had a question though regarding routing. Is it possible to route a stereo signal with one side going into an FRFR can (fm3 cab enabled) and the other side going into a poweramp and cab (fm3 cab and power amp disabled)? Also is...

    Recording settings (mono vs stereo)

    Hello, When you do the guitar recording with Axe FX III, do you usually do streo recording or mono recording? I am just curious to know the recording settings with Axe FX III and DAW. I know Axe FX III can do the stereo recording but I believe panning should be easier with DAW since it’s easy...

    Power amp that keeps stereo image of input ...

    Hello! I just discover something that, while not being a problem, is I think at least a small hole for very specific use of the FM3. When I want to play silently with my real amp, I plug all my stuff BUT the stereo FX return of the amp is sent to the Inputs 2 of the FM3. So I use the preamp of...

    Stereo Reamping with Axe 3?

    I have a stereo guitar DI going to the axe and back via USB, and if I only have the input and output blocks, it remains in stereo. But when I add and amp, cab etc, it combines to mono. How do I reamp via USB in stereo?

    Help - Monitor Stereo Out Through AxeFx?

    Been trying to figure this out for 3 hours so I thought I'd ask on the Forums :( So I was initially using an audio interface (Alesis iO2) to record my axe fx but I noticed it was muddying the sound when recording (sounded much clearer and crisper coming directly through the Axe). - Side...

    Stereo vs. Mono at gigs. What are you using?

    I typically run mono, as I traditionally view guitar as a mono instrument, and I’ve heard that stereo guitar effects and setups can be lost on an audience- depending on the venue setup. However, I have been absolutely loving the stereo effects and sounds at home using monitors and headphones...

    Anyone using the Matrix CFR12 with their AX8/Axe FX? How does it compare to the FR212?

    Hey Fractals, I'm days away from getting a pair of CFR12s and I can't wait. I've always had a thing for the FR212 but here in Australia they are extremely hard to come by, let alone hear one and play one. So I've managed to score a pair of CFR12s which I will use with a solid state power amp...

    Axe FX Ultra Stereo Issue

    I just bought myself an Axe FX Ultra to compose and record some of the new stuff I am working. My rig is very simple, guitars into the Axe FX Ultra input using 1/4" cable and output through the unbalanced L & R into studio monitors. Few days into trying it, I just realized that only one of the...

I want to be able to send the main output into my Scarlett 2i2 Interface. I also want to be able to send the DI into the interface. Will I be losing anything if I output...

    Stereo Drive Block?

    I often use the Drive Block as a preamp of sort AFTER the Amp and Cab Blocks on distorted tones, to shape them a bit more to my taste. But I've noticed that the Drive Block is actually mono, and will either sum the stereo channels or use just one of them. I don't mind it when I'm playing simple...

    Bug? Envelope controller triggered by all inputs

    The envelope trigger seems to be affected by all inputs. I play the chapman stick which has separate bass and treble outputs. When I try to use the envelope controller I can see that the trigger is affected by all inputs. An example is; if I have the front input set to be controlled by the...

    Mono Rig

    hi guys, Would like to seek for your help on how I can make my patches mono. Is it possible to have the left channel (mono) just copy that output excactly to the right channel. Reason I'm asking this is because in some of my patches, it sounds thin and unlike that if I connected my stereo...

    Axe FX II & Delays

    Hi! Just got my AXE FX 2 XL+ this week and have been experimenting with different delays to get suitable sound for my lead tones. I am trying to achieve this big stereo ping pongy sound where I would have one 350ms delay with two repeats in front fattening my main sound and second 750ms delay...

    would this sound odd?

    I've got a Matrix power amp and 2 Marshall 1960B cabs on order and had a question. I'm going to run my Axe-FX II in stereo with this rig, left to one 4x12, right to the other 4x12. However, I'm planning on stacking the cabs instead of going side-by-side (I like the look of a full-stack, what...

    1GUITAR-STEREO 1 BASS-MONO 1AXE-FX-II

    Ok...title says it all. How do I set this up on the axe-fx? Is it even possible? I assume it is since there are two outputs. I need the guitar in stereo to utilize panning and the bass down center in mono. FYI I already know how to run two guitars through the axe, one panned L and one panned R.

    Dual amp parameter linking for studio reamping L and R guitars

    Hi guys, so I exclusively use my Axefx 2 for studio use. I always reamp both left and right rhythm guitar through the line in's on the rear of the unit and end up running two separate amp rows. Typically I like to have both the left and right identical in tone and having to adjust both rows one...

    Stereo issues / Set-up problems?

    Hi everyone, I am running an AxeFx 2 with a mesa 50/50 power amp into two 2x12 cabs. While it sounds good I seem to have lost some 'tightness' and bottom end. I also think I am hearing some very minor modulation when I let notes ring out. I have gone through the IO menu and made sure...

    How To Convert Presets From Stereo To Mono?

    I want to make sure all my presets are mono. What settings do I need to change to convert them from stereo to mono? I have an Axe-Fx II Mark I. As an example, how would I convert a preset like factory preset 375 - Diamonique Rain.syx from Stereo to Mono? I'm going to verify that my presets are...
