    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 19.02 Public Beta

    Thanks a lot again for these FW releases, with continuous improvements , such a lesson for other companies... May be now a good time to have some factory presets update to fully explore these last FW ? I would really like that.

    Are FullRes IRs just for AITR sounds?

    AFX3 Mk1 here. Just tried it, and...hmmm... not convinced for my home use. I found not that much difference with the reverb block well parameterized as exposed in a thread. It's a tonal option, and that's great. To be used according to our tastes :)

    Yes it needs a DAW (I have reaper) install SAR in Windows in the DAW: refer to SAR as the ASIO driver in the DAW in the DAW: associate your real interface driver (MOtu 828es for me, or can be the FAS driver) to SAR define your SAR IN/OUT these IN/OUT are available in any other apps (Teams...

    Axe-Fx III as Interface for Teams calls etc.

    I route my audio I/O from my Motu 828es (not the AFX3n but would be the same principle) to Zoom using SAR (Synchronous audio Router) limiting drastically the latency, which was an issue for me with "Virtual Cable". You set SAR as the ASios driver and inside SAR parameter, set real interface to...

    Not a sacrifice for me to free some space for new IRs tech leading to better quality/reality in tone. So I vote for applying to Mk1 :)

    Setting up AFX3 as a USB Interface and Computer System Audio?

    I usualy use the AFX3 as interface to run in reaper some plugins such as EZ drummer for instance. To not have too much latency and glitches you must have a good CPU, as usual with audio interfaces. with my I7 I have a 64 sample latency with AFX3 drivers and its fine (around 3ms in reaper).
