    Wish USB Port for my TriplePlay Thumb

    Not sure how the USB Port is wired (power only or power and data?) but I'd like to be able to plug the thumbstick receiver for my Fishman TriplePlay into that to go USB to the computer so that the receiver is closer to the board instead of potentially 30 feet away or more. The signal on that...

    Rediscovered an old axe. This ever happen to you?

    I‘ve had this Steinberger Spirit for about 12-13 years. I bought it to take on employment because it’s about the size of a cricket bat. I yanked out the original pickups and put some passive EMG’s in it and put it in the case. The deployment never happened and it basically got ignored for the...

    Wish An Idea About User Setting Default Preset/Scene

    I just had a thought that maybe we could have a place to set our own default preset and scene number in case of a lockup (so that you can shut down and restart to a known good), or just for convenience sake. If not set, the startup default would be like now where it uses the last used preset.

    PSA: The USB-A port does not work / reserved for future use...

    .... and that’s why I couldn’t get FractalBot to talk to my unit. I hadn’t heard or seen that mentioned anywhere else before, explicitly or implicitly. So, I thought I’d just state that for the record in case some lost soul is having the same and using the search function like a boss.

    Ever since the advent of Axe-Change integration with Axe-Edit, there are some who like to dump half a dozen to a dozen or more presets on Axe-Change in a single go. Do people really like seeing this, or is it spam? Is it really necessary to paste the walls with our presets or should there be...

The issue I'm having is that that while the guitar is fantastic to play, the intonation is an issue with the NYXL 9's that are currently on the guitar. When the guitar is tuned standard (EADGBE) no chords...
