A quick reminder for the guys using scenes.. what NOT to do..


... do NOT have your Axe plugged into your laptop, especially if you're playing with a band!! You'll get this weird drop-out cut-out thing and it will rightly P1SS you off!! I learned that the hard way :D:rolleyes:

Scenes are in fact seamless when you DON'T have a USB cable going from your lappy to the Axe. If you do have it this way, you can expect to hear that weird cut-out drop-out thing which is sorta instantaneous, and enough to piss you off, and, to ruin a song if/when playing with a band. Yes, granted, you'll need it plugged in if you're running Axe Edit to make changes to patches/scenes etc.

Lesson learned: keep your laptop unplugged from your Axe and it'll sound seamless when using scenes.. do the opposite, and it won't be seamless!

F8 on Mac too

or click the button in the upper left corner (up where it says "Connected"), or select it under Setting menu (second item down)

Yeah, drop outs are just because of axe edit reading/writing. Not having axe edit on, or pausing it fixes that issue.
But there is another drop out that just can't be helped, even if you unplug the axe from laptop: Amp block x/y switching. Avoid that in scenes. Use two amp blocks instead.
