So far the few I’ve tried from axechnge and free ones have sounded pretty good to me. I don’t really have anything to reference them from so I guess what I’m saying is I don’t know how accurate they are but I have noticed my pups are pretty hot cause I have to turn the cabs down like 15 dB. Hope that doesn’t change the eq curve on the speakers since essentially that’s what they are.I tried these free ones out and they sounded pretty good so I ended up purchasing a pack from them.
Turning the cab block level down isn't the solution for hot pickups.So far the few I’ve tried from axechnge and free ones have sounded pretty good to me.

Seems the more I dig into this thing the more I like. I notice other things saying oh it’s got tube simulation. And I think. Check, got that plus infinity.
Can't you get a buddy to buy it for you? Anyway, I spent quite some time with the axe and a ground control pro. Eventually I bought an mfc.....because I could.. lol. I must admit that it really helped me use much more of the potential of the axe. Not to mention the huge " ease of use" factor. It really is plug and play. Just watch the video from katsakuri media (KKmedia) hope I spelled that correctly..on youtube. That guy really made a difference for me. I cannot thank him enough for his videos. Het helps you set everything correctly. With this machine having the right footcontroller really makes a difference.Ok guys so here’s the deal. Friggen love the axe fx. A monster. Can’t afford the 3 or foot controller atm but I heard it was plug and play. I have behringer fcb 1010.
Problem is I have no clue how to use the midi program software. All I can do is turn it on. Prices on eBay are steep and I’m banned from reverb for life. Don’t send pics of you middle finger to ppl that rip you off.
Reverb does have it for 350 should I suck it up and pay twice as much on eBay is it truly plug and play cause I hate programming tv remotes so midi is super meh
Are you not wanting to do things like change presets or scenes?Nobody that wouldn’t keep it for themselves. I figured the big midi one is too much for now the reflex one is just like a treadle was pedal but has midi and waveforms you can assign. The company said they are cost inefficient so they won’t make anymore so if it has full functionality with axe ( custom waveforms, assignable parameters from the pedal not the amp) it’s kindof hard to explain it’s called source audio reflex
Then just buy a couple expression pedals and plug them in to the pedal ports on the Axe Fx directly.Yeah changing presets and scenes would be nice I have no midi knowledge so even rudimentary stuff is beyond me. Just I find a tutorial on how to setup the reflex and it’s just trying a few knobs here and there. Plus because it’s expensive but for what it does it wouldn’t be as cost efficient as the fractal big one but I just do home recording so I’m right in front of a mouse not that big of a deal at least as much as programming midi for me
What would you use a custom waveform for?That being said I’m wondering about just the feasibility of axe and reflex. I’ve never seen an expression pedal with those capabilities and since they are no longer in production it is more interesting than just expressions. I am curious as to if the full functionality of reflex would be fully utilized. I’ve found mid controllers for the same price but you still have to program them and still wouldn’t have custom waveforms like the reflex.
Yeah I’ve messed with them some. I think the reflex lets you select like six curves I believe it lets you also use a custom one on the lfo shape. Not sure what I’d use it for just getting new sounds. I know the reflex is no longer in production because it’s not economically viable with all the tech it has so there are limited quantity and supposedly a one of a kind pedal that can control multiple parameters on multiple devices my h9 is just collecting dust. From what it sounds like it would allow you to do stuff no other expression pedal can do.What would you use a custom waveform for?
You do understand that the modifiers in the Axe Fx allow a certain degree of shaping already?
There's no "expression pedal block".As far as using a basic one with axe all I know is there’s an expression pedal block cause just hooking one up doesn’t really do anything.
Ok I got it figured out was really easy. Now I wonder what reflex can do that would be needed. Mapping parameters and midi are within the axe fx capabilities easily. The Reflex also says you can control your daw and switch presets. But idk if it’s 200$ cool. If it ment I could switch presets on the axe and not just presets on the expression pedal it would be worth it but it probably isn’t like thatThere's no "expression pedal block".
The expression pedals are "external controllers" that are assigned as modifiers to parameters within effect blocks.
