    My Voodoo Labs Ground Control came so I set it up to control my Axe FX Ultra. At first I felt overwhelmed but once the wheels started turning and everything made sense programming was a piece of cake:

    I took the plastic sheet off that is on it when it ships news, placed my labels, then put the sheet back on and taped it down for a new sweat/water/spit/beer/other harmful fluids shield hahaha.

    I also ran my Axe FX live today for the first time and I was fucking floored away. I slaved my 5150 III using it's 6L6 power amp into my mesa cab and fucckkk it sounded so good. I couldn't be happier. I can't wait to take this thing on tour. Thinking about how the only thing I have to plug up is 1 midi cable from the Axe to the Ground Control Pro almost makes me want to cry from happiness hahaha :hbang:

    Im using the same VooDoo->AxeFx setup.
    It's sick dude.

    EDIT:
    Didn't see the labels upon first seeing the pics.
    SO!
    How do you like running All Access as opposed
    to just set like 10 presets at a time?

    I'm doing the 4 presets with 8 IA's and i like it. My "rhythm" preset has a few IA's that i just kick on for certain parts. The EQ is a lo-fi/telephone sound. The drop tune takes me from A to G. The Octave Down is a dive bomb that will be controlled with an expression pedal. Delay is just for slight touches whenever i need it, etc.

    Plus it's just easier because instead of having to make an entire new preset for let's say a "lo-fi" sound, I can just kick the EQ button on and off.

    My "lead" preset is a lead boost EQ, delay, and reverb

    TIE Phase preset is the phasey/lo-fi part on This Is Exile before the breakdown.

    and Clean is just the Crystal Echos, I'll never use it but I just put it on there to play with during sound check and to show the Axe off ;) hahahaha

    Yeah, man. I've shed a few tears of joy with my Axe Fx rig and how the only thing I have to plug in is my speaker cable. I'll be adding a foot controller sometime soon, but for now, the uncompromising, awesome tone is enough :D

    Where are you gonna put the G50 now that you don't have a pedal board? In that space to the right of your rack?
