    FC-6 MK II

    Is this not for sale yet? I was wanting to buy an FC-6 from G66. But they only show pics of the MK I. No mention of the FC-6 MK II? Are they just trying to sell off the stock of MK I and not mentioning the II? seems a little strange.....

    Drive Models Suck

    I’v just compared my real Xotic AC pedal with the fractal Axe III… to be honest guys there’s a massive difference between them…. the real Xotic AC is bright yellow and very small compared to the big black 19” rack mountable Axe III - they sound the same though 👍

    Tap tempo CC#

    I selected CC13 on the Axe III. In the MIDI edit page in Cubase I selected the CC13 lane and put in a click on each beat of the bar at a value of '0' but nothing happened on playback (MIDI outs etc are all correct as the Axe is responding to Scene changes)... also tried with a value of 127.

    Ah, gotcha, I was getting a bit confused between them as I was thinking A on scene 1 B on scene 2 C on scene 3 etc…which is why I was thinking whats the difference 🤷‍♂️. I didn’t know that the channels could be set to a CC# however arnt the scenes set to 0=scene 1, 1=scene 2 etc?

    Remote control for Axe-Fx 3 except FC-12 and FC-6

    I use the RjM GT16 with my Axe III as the FC wasn’t flexible enough, but only because I needed to do a lot more MIDI things (controlling other devices as well as the Axe). If I just wanted to control the Axe III, I would have looked more seriously at the FC-12.
