My First Gigs With My New AX 8


Also curious as to what you rely on most for your on stage sound...the monitor feed or the Marshall's?
And if you send output 1 to FOH and monitors, why are the Marshall cabs mic'd?
I use the Marshalls to have a sweet spot. I can go over there and get some feedback if needed. I have a very low stage volume, but the Marshalls give me an area of the stage where I hear more guitar. I have a little bit of guitar coming out of the side fill monitor on the opposite side of the stage so when I go over there I'll still hear some guitar.
Marshall's are mic'd for Winger who was up next.

Sounds like the perfect rig. Would you be willing to share presets? Or discuss in general terms the amps/effects you use and how you set the switches? It will certainly help newbs like me learn to use the AX8.

I use x/y for clean & dirty. My dirty amp is the 5153 red. I like a lot of the other amps that are in this wonderful little box, and I've been using this 5153 for a while now. For clean, which my can sound still has a little bit of hair on it when you play hard, I'm using the Class A 30 W TB, Vox style amp. I like the highs in that amp.
To save on my cpu, I'm using the Multidelay x/y as well. X is for the "Reach For The Sky" sound, and Y is for "meat & potatoes" delay. :)
I have a Boss FS-5L that I have assigned to turn the delay on and off.
That's about it. Pretty simple setup. Hope this helps!!... B
