A week ago I updated my AXE II to 3.04 and my MFC to 1.04. Everything was working fine until this morning, when I got the dreaded AXE-FX NAME TIMEOUT! message. I read thru any & every post I could find about this and tried everything:
I bought a new straight Cat5e cable today. Didn't work.
I made sure the MFC was set to AXE-II mode and the port was set to EXPANSION. Didn't work.
I made sure the I/O>MIDI> SEND REALTIME SYSEX was set to all. Didn't work.
I reset the system parameters on the AFII. Worked - but only for a minute.
I did a Factory Default Setting Reset on the MFC. Didn't work.
Even when nothing is plugged into the MFC and I power it up with the wall-wart, I still get the AXE-FX NAME TIMEOUT! message.
And when the cat5e cable is plugged in the back of the AFII, none of the front panel controls work.
What I find to odd is that my rig was fine and this did not occur for the last week. I got all gung-ho on writing some new presets a few days ago, and everything was working fine went I finished playing last night. But this morning my rig gave me the finger! It seemed to always get stuck on one preset (223) which was a BIG patch, but the CPU was only at 92%. I thought that might have something to do with it until I noticed that it would still happen when nothing was connected to the MFC except for the wall-wart power supply.
My MFC has performed FLAWLESSLY with my Ultra since I got it. I am so bummed, but I am sure someone here or Fractal Support will have/find the answer. Please help!!!
