    Official Axe-Fx Q&A thread!

    I guess I can't really know for sure, they could have used anything in the studio. I just know what he uses live. But thanks for the help, after a little more time I've got something pretty dang close

    Help with medium gain tone on axe-fx Standard

    Hey guys. Lately I've been trying to see what all I can really do with the axe-fx, instead of just using it for high gain applications. So I've been trying to work on more medium gain tones. I'm having trouble trying to mimic a certain sound: (listen to the guitar at the beginning) I've...

    Official Axe-Fx Q&A thread!

    Damn, I thought I got close but this is much closer. I ended up settling for the RV50 sim with pretty low gain and cranked master, with the twin reverb mixed in. I didn't actually expect someone to get this close, this is awesome. What model axe-fx is this on? I didn't split my coils because I...

    Official Axe-Fx Q&A thread!

    I tried mixing the twin reverb model with the RV50, and Im getting closer. I'm just not sure how to replicate the warmth very well, mine sounds more brittle.

    Problem with pickups on new tele

    So I took this back to guitar center and I got it completely resolved. Part of it by guitar center, part of it by my own doing. My model of tele has an active mid boost EQ, and I guess I didn't realize how much that actually distorts your sound if it's in use. So at guitar center they showed me...

    Problem with pickups on new tele

    It's definitely mexican, it says made in mexico and has MX in the serial number. Also the price I paid for it definitely doesn't match up with the prices for a new American model. I looked it up on the database already and it came up with no response, so i looked on the fender database and it...

    Problem with pickups on new tele

    I thought that it might be a grounding problem, but when I opened it up from what I could see nothing seemed to be out of place. But i'll probably end up taking it in tomorrow unless someone else has had a similar problem with a similar model and has some other suggestion. I just didn't want to...

    Problem with pickups on new tele

    So I recently bought a brand new mexi fender tele from guitar center. I've been messing with getting a good tone on my axe fx with it, and I've found that the pickups are really hot. On my FAS modern patch, I get a pretty high gain tone with the gain at about 1. The pickups are so hot that I...

    Critique a new mix (The contortionist, etc etc)

    That's sort of the problem I had. I had to take out some of the high end of the guitars to get the cymbals and vocals to cut through and that's what I was left with. I'll work on it though, thanks. Anything else guys?

    Critique a new mix (The contortionist, etc etc)

    Well since I didn't get any response on that, here's an updated mix: https://soundcloud.com/johnvorhies/2-12-13 The only thing I really feel that is off is at the end when the double bass kicks in. I start to hear a high pitch pingy sound from the kick when it gets going real fast. I'm...

    Guitar Tone Test (Hundredth cover, Axe-Fx, larcher)

    Here's yet another guitar tone test. I'm just never happy with it, and I need some critiquing at this point. I'm calling out larcher just in case he happens to read this, because some of his melodic hardcore demos he puts out have awesome sounding guitar tones, nice and clear. So larcher if you...

    Trying to work on Guitar tone (Axe-FX)

    I know most of my low end should be from the bass and kick, however when i compare the EQs of similar guitar tones they still have more low end. Although I guess it depends on the mix and I can't just take the EQ curve of a guitar from a completely different mix. I just feel like the guitar...
