    AFX III Navigation Question

    The AFX II has a handy navigation shortcut on the front panel. The right arrow key in the NAV area jumps forward ten presets for each push. Makes selecting a distant preset quicker. Is there a similar key on the III front panel? Thanks.

    Getting the most out of the Axe-Fx when using headphones?

    One thing to try is to add the Enhancer block at the end of your effects chain. Another is to adjust the "room" settings in the Cab block. Also, you may want to consider adding a headphone amp between the AFX and your headphones. For me, it makes a substantial difference, especially with the...

    AFX II to XL+ Block Conversion

    I have an XL+ on the way to replace my trusty II Mark 2. I have some blocks (compressor, drive, etc) that I have created with the Mark 2 stored on my PC.

    FracTool - ultimate multitool for FAS devices

    I'm using the version posted today and I'm getting an error message before the program actually launches: I'm using a MacBook Pro running El Capitan 10.11.4 (the most current version). Thanks.

    Headphones?

    Agreed - the AFX will drive my HD600 phones just fine, too. In my case, the reason for using a headphone amp with them is not for volume but for better range, especially bass response. I did an A/B comparison and that sold me on the outboard amp. Of course, YMMV.
