    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...

    Expression pedal wah AND autowah from the same Wah block?

    I'm running the Austinbuddy Live 1000 presets (which sound fantastic BTW) and the wah block is set up to be controlled by the expression pedal (turns on when moves, turns off when toe=down). I'd like to set up that block so that it can ALSO be controlled by an envelope filter controller when I...

    After playing around with Control Switches (which are extremely powerful), I would like to have a setup where: 1. If a modifier is assigned to two blocks for control with an expression pedal (e.g. wah and whammy) 2. A Control switch is applied to the wah and whammy bypass (either separate...

    Looper Question

    Hello everyone... I’m really pleased with my Axe Fx III unit... controlling it with my Ground Control Pro... I played around with assigning the looper record, play and stop controls to the Footswitch but it’s a lot of tap dancing and not very musical in this way. Has anyone had any luck with...

    Can you achieve an 'auto wah' without having an expression pedal?

    Hi Guys, As the title suggests, I'm curious to know two things.. 1, is there such thing as having an auto wah block but without actually having an expression pedal? Will it work the same way? It doesn't need to be like Kirk Hammet or Jimi-like, just a simple wah effect. 2, if so, how...

    Wah goes to bypass when fully forward

    I have my wah controller setup without much issue. The only issue I have is when the controller is fully forward, the wah goes into bypass. I am using the HD500X as a controller and I have expression pedal 2 setup for the wah controller of the AF3. Bypass = 59 (HD500X Toe switch) AF3 learned...

    Bug? Dunlop Volume X Calibration Issues

    For some reason, when I go calibrate the pedal it only goes up to level 2 or 3 min & maximum despite the pedal being all the way up/down. I know the pedal is in perfect working condition cause when used as just a volume pedal it is consistent. It just doesn't want ro calibrate. I've tried a...

    Wah triggered by envelope and controller

    Hi everyone, Just got my AX8 a few days ago and I'm really impressed. I've owned the Kemper and currently own a Helix, this thing blows both out of the water. I'm a bit overwhelmed by the amount of "tweakability" in the unit. My question though, is there any way possible I can have my wah in...

    Can someone help me set up the wah as an auto wah?

    Just got a hold of an AX8 and for such a feature packed piece of gear, its pretty simple to use. One thing I cant quite figured out is how to set up the wah as an auto or touch wah. Any pointers would be great. Thanks!

    Wah - Auto turn off when expression pedal not moving

    I used to have an axe-fx ultra and one thing I really loved on it is that I could set the wah to automatically turn off when I wasn't moving the expression pedal. On my AX8, as soon as I touch the expression pedal the patch gets that wah extra treble which is cool when I'm using the wah, but I...

    Question #1: I have over 40 presets for a cover band. I want to knock this down to 1 or 2 'sounds' that will cover the set. However, I only have one expression pedal and I use it on a way as well as delay controls. Is there a way for the wah and delay controls to be used at the same time...

    Envelope to Filter wah...Is this possible through X/Y Wah function?

    Was just wondering if anyone knew how to (or if it's possible), to have one wah be an envelope wah (in say the x), and when switched over to "Y" in the same preset, have it be controlled like a regular filtered wah? Is this possible?

    Wah Pedal Feature - Auto Bypass

    I would like for the wah pedal to be configurable to automatically bypass when the pedal is no longer moving for a specific amount of time (i.e 1 second, configurable). This is similar to what the Morley Steve Vai Bad Horsie 2 pedal can do. Currently on the AX8 you have to manually turn off the...

    Wah help

    i need help getting a comfortable wah setup. I'm using the crybaby wah sim w/ the fractal expression pedal. The sweep of the wah seems to do nothing until the toe is about 75% down, then it opens quickly. I'm looking for a way to set it up so it acts like a true wah w/ a broad sweep. Please help.
