    Convince Me Not to Sell My Axefx

    I’ve had my Axefx for about two years now. At one point it was my live rig and now its my at home demoing rig. I find myself using like 10 of the 700+ presets and for the most part I’ve felt very uninspired by it. It’s so dry & for the purpose of demoing and writing it just isn’t inspiring...

    On what speaker should I create sounds?

    Hi! I recently bought an AX8, and I created my first preset on my computer speakers, then I went to our rehersal room and tried out the unit, and it sounded like sh*t. With my band I will use the AX8 connected directly to PA system, and I will hear the guitar through in-ear monitor system, so...

    Axe sounds different when recorded?

    So my Axe Fx tones sound a lot different when recorded through USB than they do when I'm just jamming through my speakers.. I find that it sounds a lot brighter/twangy and less warm sounding. I usually have to tweak it to sound more like it did before. Anyone else have this issue?

    Best Impulse Response for Axe Fx?

    Hi I was wondering what are some of the best IR options for Axe Fx. I think the stock cabs sound pretty good but from what I hear, you can get much better tones using different IRs. What are some of the best ones? Does anyone use the stock cabs? I'm looking for ones that would be best for metal.
