Will the Pitch block be optimized (or dedicated block) for using for drop-tuning (similar to a morpheus)? I use this a lot for live playing with mixed results....would be nice to see a block that is streamlined to do just this.
Anyway, I'm kind of confused about how comparing works in the Axe-Fx II. Can you compare entire patches you've just edited with a dedicated "compare" button that switches from the edited to previously-saved versions of patches, and/or can you directly compare edited/unedited blocks within a patch?
Does the Ultra 2 have a "compare" function enabling comparison of an edited preset with the stored preset which to me, was a critical oversight on the Ultra?
There's now a MIN and MAX that are the actual parameter values. For example, if you want to change the delay time from 500 ms to 700 ms you simply set MIN to 500 ms and MAX to 700 ms. So 0% corresponds to 500 ms and 100% corresponds to 700 ms.
The third channel on the USB output (to the computer) is the raw data from the Instrument Input. You record this. You then play this track back into the AFXII and set the Input Source to USB. Then tweak until you get the sound you want. When you are happy, record the first two channels which are the processed audio. You can save the raw track if you want to go back later and reamp the track again.
Hey Cliff, one of the big quirks about patch making, for me, was that the delay and reverb (time based post effects, really) blocks were difficult to volume match. Every time you adjusted the mix knob in one of those blocks, you had to adjust the block’s level knob as well to bring the overall volume back to where it was. To counter this, I would, for example, split the signal just for one delay block which would go into its own row, where the signal would go into the delay and then reintegrate with the main signal immediately after that, then I’d turn the delay block’s Mix to 100% and set the bypass mode to Mute In, then use the delay block’s Level control like a traditional mix knob.
Is there a way to bypass this process in the Axe-Fx II, so if you want to just add a simple delay or something without worrying about readjusting multiple levels, you can do that? Is there a way to link the delay block’s Mix parameter with the block’s Level parameter, so your dry signal level always stays at the same volume, no matter where your Mix knob is set?
Does the MFC-101 data appear at a virtual MIDI port on Mac/PC?
Suppose I use the Axe-FX II as my main audio interface with a DAW (Ableton Live8), while simultaneously using the AxeFX II for my guitar tones. Can I change Axe-FX II presets without interrupting the DAW audio out?
Since metal is my primary music interest, are the high gain amp models still well represented?
What parameters are in the new CAB block?
a) Can you tell a little bit more about it, is it some kind of 'Room effect'?
b) No more mic model - or is it an extra block now?
c) Any chance to create that 'Amp in the room sound' - instead of the usual 'control room sound' - are all included IR's close mic'ed ones?
