with his two uploaded Sounds

thx a lot! :D

Welcome AX3000G user!

now the time has come, to upload your favourite metal sound.

Until the end of the month we will do a little contest. Upload your favourite sound to the "Preset Library" in the "Metal-Sound-Contest"-Folder.

Everybody can upload his own unique metal sound. The only condition, it has to be modified for headphones. (this will give everybody the chance to rate the sound nearly in the original way).

Post your rating until the end of may in the "Comment" of this post. At the end of the month i will create a poll with the 3 best rated metal sounds for the final rating.

Let´s do it!

AX3000G: Midi Tutorial

How to connect your AX3000G:
First of all you will need a MIDI-USB-Adapter.

1. Install the AX3000G Software PC / Software MAC
2. Connect the Adapter to your PC/MAC (USB->USB)
3. Connect the Adapter to your AX
(Adapter-Out -> AX-In / Adapter-In -> AX-Out !)
4. Open the AX3000G Software
5. Go to "Midi" - Setup
6. Set your Midi in- and outputs to the usb-midi cable.
7. Now everything should work fine, if not, let me know!

Note: You can´t record your guitar-sounds with this midi-connection. midi only sends data instructions. to record audio to your pc use the L/mono analog output or the s/p dif digital output.

Tutorial: Imitate guitar sounds

I often read questions in forums like: How can i make a sound like XXX , or where can i download a preset for the band XXX?

I made this little tutorial to get a kind of workflow. This is not the sample solution, but its a way to come closer to the sound you are looking for.

1. Step
If you have really no idea how to start: Use the internet to search what gear your artist is playing with. Most import information is what kind of amp/cabinet he plays. This will be the base of your sound.

2. Step
Now listen to the sound, when the artist plays without any other musicians. Try to loop this, or just listen very carefully. Now set the Amp and Cabinett and play around with the gain, volume, treble, mid and low knob.

3. Step
You should have come much closer to your sound now. Now listen if there is any fx, delay or reverb in your artists sound. You have to try it to get the right setting and this could be very time-consuming.

4. Step
When you think you´re finished listen to another artist and then switch back to your track.
Check the sound again... and again... and again...
Once you think you´re close to the sound, save the preset and share it with other´s ;)
