    FX III Tone Match examples and tests

    I've been trying to learn a little more about FXIII's Tone Match. After several tries and tests, I realize that the tone match is very good when I do all the “homework” choosing the same original amplifier on the fractal, and if possible the same settings. I also try to use the guitar as similar...

    Studio Monitor Tone Match?

    I primarily use my III through monitors (JBL305s) and they sound great! The tones I create translate well to a PA where I play live. I also have a Fender Mustang IV amp that has stereo FX return and can be setup to be a power amp straight to the speakers or with some processing of the internal...

    Why is there no "Axe-Fx IIl Tone Match" section in this forum?

    I have found only one Axe-Fx IIl Tone Match youtube video (in english) which I intend to use (in a few days) to create my first tone match. The tone match video maker has no step by step detail, just general. Since no one has created this section, I hope to document my experience, step by...

    Tone Match vs. IR

    Hi, Somewhat new to axe-fx iii and I'm a little confused between the tone match and the IR. I saw a video by Cooper Carter where he did a tone match and then saved it or converted it to an IR for a cab. I want to use the axe-fx iii to "auto adjust" the sound of the input to match the sound of...

    Carry on AX8, my wayward son

    Listening to the song "Carry on ...." from the band "Kansas" today (music released in 1976/77) I'm amazed how everything sounds so good. Testing several Marshall models of Ax8, the model I found closest to the original sound of the song was the JCM800 (although it was only released in 1981). A...

    Is There A Way To Tone Match A Preset With Two Amp Blocks?

    Hello again, Last night, I was attempting to TM a preset that I had made, with two amp blocks. Again, I have to do this so I can post my presets to Axe-Change due to the fact that we cannot use third-party IR’s. This leaves me in a bit of a bind because I use third-party impulse responses a...

    Is there a way to tone match a guitar volume - tone stack?

    Like sending the “tone matching frequency sweep” into the circuit just after the pickups while the AxeFx is listening. I have a fantastic Musicman Luke 111 and I swear there is some eq love going on in the boost section of the preamp. I would like to capture its treatment and be able to use...

    Pete Thorn Tone match?

    The elusive Jim Root tone

    Mic Preamp with Axe Fx II

I was having a hard time getting a signal from the box to the axe fx, I couldn't even get the level...

    Deftones - Around The Fur Tone Match

    Hey everyone, I've been hard at work on more TMs and this is one of my favourites. I've done two separate presets, one using the Brit Pre (which is actually a more accurate TM) and one using the ENGL (slightly easier on the ear). One may suit your guitar better than another. Otherwise, adjust to...

    Tips for achieving this sort of Shawn Lane tone
