Axe FX help. Poweramp, cables.

Hey!

I'm almost overwhelmed and done buying an Axe FX, standard.
So, I mainly going to use it for rehearsal/live. But for recording also.

How good is the Rocktron velocity 300? Becuase of my price range, thats the most affordable to me. I need some good reviews of it.

Also.. What cables should I get? I got a Macbook 13" alu, thats the one before Apple released the Macbook Pro 13".
I want it like this: Axe-FX->Macbook->Logic pro. I don't have Firewire, can you use a USB cable?

Others from that. What cables do I need to do this: Axe-FX->poweramp->cabinet ?

Hey man,

There is an even cheaper but still awesome power amp out there from Carvin if money is an issue:Carvin.com :: DCM200L

Since only the Axe Fx II has onboard usb (hah hah sucker! jk jk), you're going to need a USB Audio/MIDI Interface such as this:M-AUDIO - Fast Track Pro - 4 x 4 Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface with Preamps

For connections with the Axe Fx it is best to read the manual, it explains all of the different methods.

Hope this helps you a little!

Thats kind of expensive. I just need a interface to use Axe-Edit, so I can get tweak some on the computer. Am I right? So the cheapest out there that works.

The carvin did cost like 100 more then the Rocktron in my country.

Oh yeah man, there are definitely cheaper options, I was just showing the KIND of unit you would need. You can get some for $50 or less.

If you want to record, the Fast Track Pro is probably one of the cheaper options. It basically saves you $50 on a midi interface as well as being a great recording interface.

You should have a good read of the stickied Axe-FX thread. You may decide you want to try an FRFR setup instead of a poweramp and cab.

Eclipse the golden mirror, and the reflection is set free...

So you can record and use Axe-Edit together with ONLY the fast track pro?
It did just cost like 90 used in my country, cheaper then only a MIDI interface.

I should read some in the Axe-FX thread yes, but i'm holding on into that I want to use a poweramp and cab

Well, it's inactive because every attention grabber buying an axe wants his own topic, seriously, there's another asking the same exact ....ing question on the same page.
