Multiple Output Signals: PA System, Full-Range Monitors and More

When playing our Axe-Fx, we want our sound to get out to the audience of course, but we also need to hear ourselves play! The Axe-Fx III has more I/O than ever before, and we can use the multiple outputs to send signal to various places at the same time, like the PA system, a stage monitor, or any other speaker setup – each with their own separate volume control.  There are different ways to do this, and this article focuses on Full-Range systems like Powered speakers, Studio Monitors, or PA systems, as opposed to a guitar amp head and guitar cab.

USB Playback is very quiet or silent after updating Firmware to 18.01 or higher

Gear used in this article: Axe-Fx II (Original, Mark II, XL, XL+) Firmware 18.01 introduced a new parameter in the I/O-Audio menu on the Front Panel of the Axe-Fx II. It is called the "USB Return Level" and controls the sound returning from the computer to the Axe-Fx when using the Axe-Fx as a USB Audio Interface.  This sound could be iTunes, Spotify, your DAW like Cubase or Pro Tools, and even regular computer notification sounds. If your firmware is anything before FW18.01, when you update...

Connections: FOH/PA System and Real Guitar Amp and Cabs at the same time – Axe-Fx II

Gear used in this article: Axe-Fx II - Full Range & Guitar Amp/Cab setup Many people like to have their Axe-Fx tone and effects play through their favorite guitar amp and cab on stage for the "amp in the room" sound as opposed to the "studio recorded" sound that the full-range Axe-Fx signal can produce through a full-range monitor speaker. Additionally, instead of mic'ing their cab as they would with a traditional amp/cab setup, they want to send the full-range Axe-Fx signal to the...

Gear used in this article: Axe-Fx II - Full Range setup The Axe-Fx II has a bunch of outputs that we can use to send to various places, like the PA system, a personal monitor, or any other speaker setup.  There are different ways to do this, and this article focuses on Full-Range systems like PA speakers, Studio monitors or full PA systems (as opposed to a guitar amp head and guitar cab).   Out 1 XLR & 1/4" The simplest way to get the Full Range Axe-Fx signal to the Front-of-House...

Scene Controllers in the Axe-FX II – Basics

Gear used in this article: Axe-Fx II (Original, Mark II, XL, XL+) Scene Controllers are a new feature introduced for the Axe-FX II in Firmware v12. It's a great addition because now we can change the parameters within blocks to particular settings when we change scenes, and we can have different settings for each of the 8 scenes. So if I want a Drive setting of 3 in Scene 1, 5 in Scene 2, 1 in Scene 3 and 7.8 in Scene 4, I can now do that! *NOTE* Much of the information on this page applies to...

Setting the Input Level – Axe-FX II

Gear used in this article: Axe-Fx II (Original, Mark II, XL, XL+) In this video, I show how to set the correct Input Level on the Axe-FX II, which is really just setting the optimal signal to noise ratio. It doesn't affect the gain or tone of your preset unless you have extreme low levels that don't give enough signal or high levels that constantly clip. If you set the level to 100% and you aren't making the red clip lights turn on, it's ok! We don't want any clipping and whatever level you...
