Well I never thought I'd have a reason to post in this thread, but I succumbed to temptation during the Black November sale, and my new Axe-FX III+FC6 made its stage debut on NYE. Man, was it awesome. [snip]
Welcome to the forum Lizzy! I'm digging what you're doing with HBH and looking forward to hearing the Axe-FX III in that context.

Be sure to wear a helmet with the Axe-FX; it's been known to blow some minds :cool:

Hey, thanks! I've been a happy AX8 user for a couple years, never was very tempted by the rack + pedal form factor of the Axe III but finally caved since it was my birthday and dammit I deserved it. So glad I did. Planning to use it on local gigs only, fly dates will still be the AX8 and soon the FM3. ;)

Got a bit excited and took a stack of photos, here is my current setup:



And here is the Axe FX III snug in it's case:



There are some more images here if anyone is interested:
Great setup, very clean! Where did you source the cool wood case? Thanks.

New house, much better EMI situation (I was able to drop the gate threshold from -43 to -65 in most cases!) and home made desk.
I have the threshold at -30 dB ... I live near a high voltage line and several transmission towers ...
I had to enclose my monitors in aluminium foil to prevent high frequency EMI.

DAW setup.

Logic X
Logic remote
Final cut
Mac OS Mohave
Waves plug-ins
Yamaha HS8’s
Akai MpkII
Roland AC-90

In the process of importing/salvaging/ mastering decades of Dat & cassette tapes.
I used to let the cassette recorder run at almost every single band practice. Just the 30 year old conversations during practice are like gold to me and former band mates. Cleaning up old masters too, then I can ditch my dat and cassette recorder, in place of UA Audio hardware.

What is this "Logic remote" of which you speak? I have Logic Pro X and a Mojave Mac with KRK Rokit 8s, so the core elements of you setup and mine are pretty similar....

Logic remote for iPad, but I usually just use the keyboard “Logic” linked transport controls

Hah, good on you that you kept that stuff, my dinosaur tracks are long gone mostly.

OTOH, a few years ago, one of the bands I was in in high school had a 40-something-th reunion! People came from all over, up to one of the guys gorgeous farm in Vermont for a few days.

We set up in this huge barn, guitar bass drums 3 horns singer. It was a blast! I hadn't played with anyone in decades (ex pro musician and sound guy), brought my pretty new to me Helix, big fun.

Had lots of catching up to do too...

Help, I'm old! Us antiques can still dig a III though ;)

This is my portable Axe-Fx III rig. I keep the Axe angled up in front of me if the gig allows for it. Easy access to everything. An FC-6 (or FC-12, depending) plus an EV-1 expression pedal complete the rig. As always, a 12'-long guitar cable lies coiled under the Axe in case my wireless fails.

My high school band has been doing reunions since 2004. The bass player and I started playing in 1969, the drummer joined us in ‘72. My high school class is having its 45th reunion next year, and they want our band again (we did the 40th too). Can’t wait to unleash the AXE-FX III on my band mates :yum: We’ve got a couple recordings from back in the ‘70s, we got a lot better!

Either a floor monitor in front or the CLR as backline but never without stage amplification. No IEM and so for my fellow musicians. IEM IMHO is for big stages with no audience close to the stage. For small venues IEM are more hype than necessary except if you run your act at 120dBA+ and cannot hear your fellow musicians without IEM.

Pardon me, I'm new to this section of the Forum. I currently am on the waitlist for the FM3. I'm currently using a AX8, EV1,and a RCF NX-12 SMA. I bought a FC6 in preparation for the FM3. I'm rethinking my gig rig and wondering a couple of things.

1. Anyone gigging the III with just the FC6?

2. Anyone using a rolling rack with the III, maybe a power conditioner, and a FRFR monitor underneath? It would be nice to roll into the gig, take the front/back of the rack, and run a cord out to my FC6 and play?

Anyone close to doing these things? Or should I wait for the FM3?
