    Any database to sort through amps, pedals, presets, …?

    Buy the AustinBuddy Live Gold presets. He arranges them into families of amps (Fender style, Marshall style, etc.). Within those families each preset is generally ordered by amount of gain by amp model. And within each preset he provides scenes from low to high gain levels targeted at both...

    FM3 Turbo?

    An FM3 using the FM9 Turbo’s chipset has some advantages. From a firmware maintenance point of view it means essentially a single firmware image can be used for both the FM3 and FM9. That’s an advantage in development time and also pushes out more value to the FM3 product line in terms of...

    Plexi. Who's got one?

    +1 on York's M25 mix 3. I was surprised to see other mentions here! Also typically go to that IR.

    Speaker Impedance Curve: Why is this in the Amp Block instead of the Cab block?

    From an electrical signal flow point of view the speaker impedance curve lives in the amp block. From a user point of view it lives in the cab block, because the speaker impedance curve changes depending on the cab selected. Today the "cab" means the IR, which of course also includes the mic...

    Analog Drive Pedals in front of Axe III to get better FEEL, who else is doing this?

    Totally off topic, but your music is fantastic!

    VH4 and Silver Jubilee clean channels would be fantastic to have.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware 19.00 Beta 3

    Is it just me or is 19 taking external drive pedals much better than past versions? Have recently been playing around with a few external drives in front of plexi models set to edge of breakup. This version is a heck of a lot of fun with them, and better than I heard using them with 18.

    Help understanding the Control Switches (CS)

    I had a similar question, wondering how to enable CS2 from within Axe-Edit without using a physical footswitch. This may be useful to someone else. Here's one way that works. Decide which Scene to try CS2 on. Select Controllers in the upper left. Select CS per Scene in the lower area. For the...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 16.04

    From 15.x I notice a change. From 16.02, not so sure. I was already very happy with 16.02.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 16.04

    16.04 is phenomenal. The releases before have been as well. But I felt compelled to bow to my III in honor after a quick jam just now. Amazing! Might need to pick up an FM3 too. I use another device as a portable unit, but this sounds so much better. o_O

    FM3 Firmware Version 3.03 beta 1

    I’ve only gone as far as 4 semitones down, to get to C standard. It works very well and is playable. The only thing I’ve had to watch for when using the capo feature is that the level is high enough that I’m not hearing the sound of the strings on my guitar at the same time. If you hear them as...

    FM3 Firmware Version 3.03 beta 1

    I have the III and the Drop. Didn't A/B them, but the virtual capo on the III impresses me to the point of not using the Drop. I believe it was verified that it has less latency than the Drop. Either way, I'm very happy with it.

    Axe-Fx III 16.00 Beta 11 "Cygnus" Firmware - Public Beta #8

    These updates just make me want to play. Best compliment I can possibly give. Last time I camped on a BE and 5150 setting playing the heavies. This time I went for near-cleans using the 1959SLP with the gains low and single coils. No temptation to tweak or even to leave the amp model I was on...

    Axe-Fx III 16.00 Beta 4 "Cygnus" Firmware - Public Beta

    Loving this beta. Thanks for posting it. Got lost playing for an hour, and mainly camped on the BE V2 through a York MRSH M25 IR. The Axe-FX III is the only modeling unit I can just enjoy playing without entering into endless tweaking. Strange statement, it seems, for a unit that can be...
