  2. FWIW = These cabs are built in the same factory as the Altos , yet sound even better than the Alto TS112A http://alesis.com/alpha112 details http://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?topic=12481.0
  3. what you describe is typical when using high gain amp settings, when your mag pickups require wax potting http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/faq/seymours-q-a/551575/

  5. Good call - should provide much needed Exposure, and generate sales. http://www.nashvilledowntown.com/play/nightlife/live-music Visit Gruhns Guitars http://guitars.com/ 2120 8th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37204 (615) 256-2033 Side story - Last time I was there, I was working R&D for Gibson Dark Fire with Tronical, and I flew from Burbank to Nashville and Tronical picked me up at the Airport and we headed to a local club / bar - nothing but Budweiser - most exotic beer they had was "Michelob" - the next morning we got an early start and at breakfast I asked: Do you have anything other than "Maxwell House Coffee"? Only to find out I was staying at the actual "Maxwell House" Hotel http://www.millenniumhotels.com/usa/millenniumnashville/
  6. Yes there is patch to patch change latency on Firehawk ( and its longer than the HD500X ) the "patch change lag" is a result of loading new data in the Firehawk's singular DSP for each patch But if you have access to a Roland GR-55 - audition it for its patch change delay latency Know that the Line-6 Firehawk FX switches patches at least twice as fast as the GR-55.
  7. I get excellent results with a Roland Cube Street EX - plenty loud, battery powered 50 Watts (25 W + 25 W). Just feed the Stereo Line Inputs http://www.rolandus.com/products/cube_street_ex/

  14. Try recalibrating the Expression pedal Toe Switch, or insert a small piece of wood under the expression pedal to restrict its travel so it never hits the toe switch . Use a stack of Post -it notes and peel off sheets until the "shim" is just right
  15. What is your IOS device? Here my Sonic port VX works great with iPhone 6 Plus and iPad AIR = both are using IOS 8.1.3 Remember the 1/4" Outputs on Sonic port are TRS Balanced ,and these work best when using a 1/4" TRS to XLR Male cable straight into a PA

  17. I still have my Vetta+ FBV, and I have the Armin Cab firmware upgrade For reference comparison, I made frequency response plots (Several Pages worth) of all factory Vetta Amps, Cabs, and Mic Sims - and made a large PDF for folks to download at VGuitarforums ---- http://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?topic=88.msg3791#msg3791 Typical Amp, Cab, Mic Frequency Response Curves. Although I developed these tests a few years ago with a Line6 Vetta - the basic characteristic "EQ Curve" of most popular Amps, Cabs, and Mics are documented here - to get you in the ball park. I think anyone trying to get a decent guitar tone will be better equipped if they understand the Frequency response differences / relationships between: Amp Heads: a Fender Twin, and a Marshall JCM-800, or a Peavey 5150. Speaker Cabs: A Celestion Vintage 30, Jenson C10Q, or a JBL D130 Mics: Shure SM-57, Seinheisser 421, Neumann U-47 - (both On Axis and Off Axis!) Its not off topic to refer to these EQ plots when trying to emulate these sounds with a VG-99 - I view each of the companies (Line6, Roland, Digitech, Axsys) as leapfrogging each other - its more a function of "who's got the faster DSP and highest bit depth this year? http://www.vettaville.com/vetta_frequency_plots.htm (Must be a member of VGuitarforums and "logged in" to download the attached documents) http://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=88.0;attach=919 http://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=88.0;attach=920 http://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=88.0;attach=921
  18. I suggest get a can of Caig DeOxit Contact spray and a very short blast into the External Expression pedal jack input. Then use any guitar cable and insert /remove a few times as this action will "clean" any oxidation from the jack's internal switch contacts The External Expression pedal jack is a switching type and often on new gear the Asian jack component vendors use a thin anti corrosion coating on the metal contacts -perform the above on any mechanical electrical contact that is intermittent or makes noise. My theory is the marginal switching Jack on the external expression pedal jack is momentarily opening up and creating the problem of no signal.

    Yes - I own several self powered Monitors - and prefer my pair of Alpha 112A - they are lighter and louder than my EV ELX112P's Alesis Alpha 112A Reviews: http://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?topic=12481.msg90635#msg90635
  21. FWIW - the new Live Edit Mode in Firehawk FX 1.10 firmware provides a means of setting the Delay time in 1 bpm increments - using the data wheel

    IMHO - Best value self powered speakers that work excellent with all DSP Amp / FX Modeling systems are the Alesis Alpha 112A - they are built in the same factory as Alto TS112A http://alesis.com/alpha112 Ebay $199/ea (Buy Two for Stereo) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Alesis-Alpha-112-Active-2-Way-12-1000-Watt-Loudspeaker-with-Built-in-Alesis-DSP/331506696165?_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140602152332%26meid%3Dec232c8958624821a40763c3bb85206f%26pid%3D100011%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D3%26sd%3D331437629649
  23. Just a reminder for others - I suggest check the state of the rear "OUTPUT MODE SWITCH" If this Switch is in the "AMP" position you get a complete loss of Guitar signal from both the XLR and Headphone Outputs
  24. Vote! http://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Firehawk-FX-USB-Re-Amp-Feature-+-MIDI-control-message-over-USB/727710-23508?submitted=1 I want a USB "Re-Amp" capability - with the ability to set the USB Send and USB receive points at any point in the signal path: the major benefit is Firehawk FX sales would triple if it could be used as a platform for running IOS Guitar FX (NOI.ise FLUX:FX, Johnny tremolo, etc) . I seek this type flexibility for the USB Audio connection in Firehawk: + Add ability for Firehawk to transmit over USB some basic MIDI Patch change messages and MIDI CC# messages over its existing USB 2.0 Class Compliant interface - and everyone wins!
  25. Correct - if you use the phone to place your order they will honor the discount code. http://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?topic=15254.msg108996#msg108996
