    Using an FRFR for live performance? What's your output level strategy?

    FRFR or no FRFR...clean sounds must come out without clipping at lead level, then adapt distorted sounds. Generally 0dB at the output VU is OK, keeping some 6-9dB under the hood for more headroom and easier playing. Then adjust CLR level as necessary.

    Bug? Ares 1.03 Axe-Fx II low end thump when changing presets

    If it's a bug I'm quite convinced it will be corrected, but maybe FAS is waiting for other bugs to pop up and also putting this for the time being at low priority, seems logic to me.

    Trying to do a spillover with 2 presets

    Put a copy of the delay block you want to let spillover then paste it in the exact same position on the grid in the other patch. Adapt volume differences, activate spillover in the axe fx ii settings and you're fixed. It's imho the one and only shortcoming of axe fx ultra and axe fx ii.

    MIDI pedal?

    Never had any problems neither with the 3 pedals I have used (Voes, FCB1010, LG2). I think the Boss FC-300 midi controller can handle CC values also and would be a good value pedal, especially as it's not so large as the FCB that can be a PITA to carry around; anybody to confirm here ?

    MIDI pedal?

    Have used succesfully Voes MC10, Behringer FCB1010 and Gordius LG2. Remained with the Gordius, even got myself a backup unit lately; as it can also handle midi in, but the Voes is excellent also. Whatever you buy check it does not just CC on/off but can also handle CC values for scene management.

    Changing Scenes via MIDI triggers in a DAW automatically?

    FCB/UnO ControlCenter, "Connection Timeout Occured!"

    You probably had two footswitches pressed too long and it went into configuration mode. No sweat, just cut off the power and restart the pedal.

    Hello Bakerman, It's a synth patch based on a "Simeon" sound with intelligent pitch shifter behind the synth blocks. The pitch is actually commanded by a scene parameter.

    Stratocaster - Try again? Or punt...

    Yes, strats are real workhorses, but you have to "stress" them a bit to get the best out of it, playing just caressing the strings won't do them any honor. Well hit the strings, a bit of boost before the amp, these single coils cut through anything.

    Chris, having been confronted to a black out of one channel of a PA system lately : maybe if using only mono effects; but in that case why use stereo outputs..It does not sound conveniently to use only one side when using stereo effects and if you're using an enhancer block it's worse.

    Harley Benton PM100, anyone tried ?

    As far as I can see, there is no USB editor for this thing, which means 'manual' parametering = PITA. IMHO this could be a bummer, OTOH, I can understand they did not create an editor for programming two banks with 8 buttons each, and 2 expression pedals..under 40 values.
