    Is the III really that much better than the II? I've been looking into getting a IIXL+ to replace all my real amps for noodling at home purposes (and maybe playing open Mics when that's allowed again.) Prices seem to range in the $1600-1800 range. the IIIs are closer to $2500, while Ultras...

    I just turned my AX8 off, then turned it back on an hour later, and suddenly all of the presets sound different. One of the bassiest tones I've ever made now sounds really trebly and a more balanced tone now sounds super bassy. Any idea what could have happened and how to fix it? I've tried...

    I'm not using her at all, so it's time to let her go. Here's the scoop - it works perfectly fine. It's got a little wear on the outside, including a slightly bent rack tab but nothing major. When I got it shipped to me it wouldn't boot initially but turns out the EEPROM chip was just slightly...

    I have an Axe-Fx II XL which ive been using exclusively for home recording through monitors. I am going to be getting back into jamming with a few friends soon and I am just wondering what the best/most effective way to set a rig up will be without having to spend $$ on FRFR speakers. I have...

    Title says it all. I've been offered an Axe-Fx for my Laney VH100R head, which was intended to fund a 5150 III 50W head. I wasn't really considering the Axe until now, so it's quite a dilemma. :scratch: - The 5150 III: I'd just have to buy the head. I already have a Boss GT-8 for effects. Was...

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 1.00 Firmware Release We have gone from 19 back to 1. From the demo that I watched of the beta, the master volume changes the amps a lot more. About to download it myself and try it out. This is the initial release of our "Quantum" firmware. Quantum represents a...

    I've been recently demo-ing the three current main contenders in the VST Ampsim realm (Revalver 4, Recabinet 4, and BIAS) to decide which one to buy, and honestly I don't get all the hype with BIAS... :scratch: It just has a very annoying clanky attack and overexagerated treble response that I...

    Axe-Fx II Firmware 19.00 Released If you use drive blocks in front of your amp sims, you need this update. I had to tweak some parameters after the update, but it's worth it. The drives do a better job of seasoning the amp sound now rather than overwhelming it.

    Hey guys how's it goin :) Just posted this vid in which I'm playing a Blackmachine B7 loaded with BKP Juggz, into my Axe-Fx II. I'm first playing the bridge pickup, then switching to the neck pickup on the second half. I've also got this picture, don't have more as of yet sorry :( If you...

    I liked the Mark V, but to really do it justice (like most tube amps) it needed to be cranked. Since I already have this, and it's buried in my desk and a pain in the ass to move anywhere.. I figured I'd just get another one... (Which is a Mark II.) Now I can direct record all the jams...

    AXE-FX II = sex in a box. or sexy box, boxxy sex? :boobs: whatever, I dialed up the Friedman HBE and was blown away. The Cameron kicks ass as well. I'm in love :wub:

    i realize this is my second post of the week and i might be in danger of wearing out my welcome, but... i shot this video earlier tonight: basically an improvised solo played in free time, to which the backing track was added later. played thru preset #025 on the Axe-Fx2 (the 6160 sound)...

    Here's exactly how I do it, which works just the way it should. I can live re-amp the signal while the track is playing and tweak the Axe-Fx in the mix. Note that I do not use the USB for this, and that I'm not in any saying that this is the best way to do it - it's just how I go about it. I'm...
