    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 6.00 Public Beta

    Nope. Didn't work here. The outputs had bricked. Rolled back to 5.09 without any issue.

    That's a great idea!

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.09 Public Beta

    It's really seeing our part as users in the development process. This current release is a 'Public Beta' and as the name suggests, it's inviting us to try it out and make suggestions about its functionality, along with finding any bugs and issues prior to an official release. The cool thing is...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.09 Public Beta

    It would be no different to using real pedals and amp, so yes, bumping a button would cause a permanent change, but I'd say that was less likely than it is with a real amp/pedals. However if there was an option not to have auto-save engaged, then it'd be a failsafe if you absolutely don't want...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.09 Public Beta

    When you adjust a pedal or lean over and alter the settings on your amp during a performance, you don't have to then click STORE/ENTER/ENTER afterwards. This is the reason I'd suggested an Auto-Save option earlier in the thread. It would behave a lot more like a conventional setup.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.09 Public Beta

    It'd be nice to have the option (or setting) whilst in the perform mode for it to Auto-Save your adjustments. So for example, as it currently is, I make an adjustment on the fly at a gig, then I switch to another preset. When I switch back to the original preset, my adjustments have un-done...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.08

    Hi Cliff, as a guide, how much do you tend to roll off on those IR's? My main IR of my own cab which I use globally was shot with a '57, and it always has been a bit spiky on the top end. This new feature should cure that nicely!

    Drivers issue?

    It is odd, as I didn't change anything at all prior to that, and it's never happened before.... Anyway, the support info was a great help, many thanks!

    Drivers issue?

    Update. Problem solved. I followed the steps on the support page about drivers (the more in depth version) and, and although a little more complex than instructed (it involved a complete PC reboot) I got it working again. I don't understand why it stopped working in the first place, but at least...

    Drivers issue?

    My Axe-Fx II XL just stopped working with my PC (Windows 10). I just couldn't get it working again despite several reboots etc. So I tried re-installing the drivers, but no luck. I get an error message (below) during the install. Any ideas what might be causing this?

    Playing an MP3 over Axe-Fx III

    Actually I'm interested in doing this, but for a different reason. We have been playing an ipod through our desk/PA for background music during set breaks. However the Aux in on our desk isn't that great, because there is no EQ on it, and we tend to have it set low in volume, so due to the...

    Matrix GT1000FX

    I suppose in asking 'how is it achieved?' then the answer lies in the circuit design. I had read somewhere (unsubstantiated) that when Andy Hunt released the GT800FX, he was offered something like $100,000.00 for his designs by Fractal audio, but of course turned that down, because he knew he...

    Matrix GT1000FX

    The Matrix design for the GT1000FX incorporates a slowed response, to mimic the sag you'd normally get from a tube amp. This also improves the 'feel'. A normal PA type amp can react too quickly to your playing, so Andy the designer addressed this issue from the outset.
