Andrea Puxeddu is a young guitarist from the beautiful Italian island of Sardinia. Some of his videos have been featured in the Videos of the Week section on our website: all of them show his talents as a guitar player but also how you can achieve great tones with the Axe-Fx II. With this interview we tried to get to know him a little more and asked how his playing has changed since he got his Axe-Fx II.
We are very happy to have found a special "Thank You to Fractal Audio Systems" in the liner notes of 'Songs of Innocence', the new album by U2. We'd like to return the thank you: We are honored to have the Axe-Fx be among the many pieces of equipment—past present and future—that the Edge has selected to become part of U2 rock 'n roll history" (in case you missed Apple's keynote celebration last night, iTunes subscribers can download the album for free through iTunes).
COOPER CARTER GETS CONNECTED
New to the XL? And wondering how to combine your components and get them all up and running? In this video Cooper Carter shows you how to combine the Axe-Fx II XL with the MFC-101 and a Mission expression pedal with toe switch.
Every step is clearly shown, from basic cable connections to necessary configuration of the devices themselves. Cooper also discusses other configuration options and common mistakes.
Take a look and see how easy getting set up can be!
