    Axe-Fx II Firmware "Ares" 1.00 Public Beta

    There's already several Axe-Fx models to maintain. If anything I would drop some of the variant amp models or Axe-Fx Std/Ultra ported models and fill that space with say more effects preset options (e.g. overdrive, delay etc models of specific pedals). Those who don't like this can always stick...

    Axe-Fx II MK-I: Fan Size

    I used some rubber ropes meant for hanging a hard drive in a computer case so it doesn't transfer resonance to the case. I mounted the 60mm fan angled between the posts then wrapped the rubber ropes around and between the posts and fan and finally put the nuts on the bolts to keep it all in...

    Can the Axe-Fx II sustain?

    That's controlled feedback. Nothing to it other than installing a sustainer pickup or using speakers at a decent volume.

    Touch and Volume Sensitivity

    I haven't been able to tell any real difference between the tube amps I've played and the Axe-Fx 2 when it comes to responding to picking dynamics and guitar volume. Works as expected.

    how to adjust output of the headphone jack

    Why would you use the headphone out for that when the back panel has several line-outs and digital outputs that would work better? The headphone output is controlled by the Out 1 knob.

    What are you using for sustain?

    Same here, unless you are trying to get that Gary Moore live infinite sustain from feedback thing, any good guitar would have more than enough sustain.

    What's all the Hoopla about Scenes?

    I find scenes to be incredibly convenient for changing what effects are on, toggling the X/Y states of blocks etc. Rather than having to duplicate the same signal chain with small changes in each preset so you get your clean/od/lead or whatever typical combinations of settings you need, you can...

    Helix Control Pedal + Axe FX III

    The Helix Floor or LT can work for this as it outputs MIDI and has actually really good controls for determining what it sends but the Helix Control is more like the FC, a proprietary "dumb" box.

    Helix Control Pedal + Axe FX III

    Since there is no MIDI, to make the Helix Control work with the Axe-Fx 3 you would need to build a box that does the following: Has a controller like a small Arduino or other cheap little thing with a programmable firmware. Ports for each unit (XLR for FASLink, Ethernet for Helix Control)...

    Timing on availability of exact specs/photos of FC-6/12

    I don't think they have any real incentive to do that. Considering even the Sysex specs for Axe-Fx 2 are incomplete on the Wiki, I doubt Fractal has much interest in releasing a full spec for the 3. Having done something like this for the Axe-Fx 2, it was a fair bit of work to read and update...

    Timing on availability of exact specs/photos of FC-6/12

    The Helix allows you to map MIDI CCs to output on switch presses so I think it would be possible to get at least block and channel on/off toggles there. See the Command Center section of the manual. Has Fractal outlined what the foot controllers can actually do?

    Raspberry, signs of life (MIDI)

    Better solution would be to use a MIDI controller with LED rings around the infinite rotary pots. I used to own a Yamaha DG80 combo that had motorized knobs that changed when presets changed and that was great but also the number one thing that eventually failed on those amps. Infinite rotaries...

    Celestion IRs vs Other?

    There's a ton of cab IRs with V30s. To me Celestion IRs only make sense if you focus on the less well represented speakers.

    Curiosity on durability

    I have a MK I and the only thing I've had to change is the fan.

    Timing on availability of exact specs/photos of FC-6/12

    I'm not aware that the FC actually does much more than a MIDI controller at least initially. I've been using a cheap FCB1010 with my Axe-Fx 2 for years and it can do all the things needed but just doesn't have any feedback on the device about the status of the Axe-Fx. Small price to pay for such...
