    Future for the FC12 & FC6

    Does any one expect that the FC controllers will be compatible with future Fractal release? Like an Axe Fx 4? I realize that we may or may not be close to the next generation. Maybe @FractalAudio @Admin M@ could chime in?

    Axe Fx 3 Rental

    I've had a local sound production company reach out to me to rent my Axe Fx 3 for a guitarist in a touring act. It's for one show. I have never done this sort of thing before. What do you guys think is a fair price to charge for the rental?

    Alternate DI Source with Axe-Fx 3

    Is there any difference in the DI signal if I used USB Input 3 in my DAW to record a DI track, instead of USB Input 5? The reason I am looking at doing it this way is so that I can put an Output 2 block off of Input 1 on the Axe's grid, with a Pitch block in between to record a Whammy effect to...

    Kemper With Axe-Fx 3 4CM SPDIF

    Hi everyone! I have a new Kemper rack heading my way and was wondering if running my Axe FX 3 in 4CM with it using SPDIF is possible. As in SPDIF out from the Axe to Kemper SPDIF in, Kemper SPDIF out Axe SPDIF in. I guess technically it’s 3CM counting the guitar cable, but you get where I am...

    BUG: Assigning a Modifier - IIC++

    When I attempt to assign a scene controller modifier to the USA IIC++ Overdrive control and change scenes, it's shutting off the audio and locking the meters on output 1. Instead of getting into, whats bound to be a confusing explanation on my end, load up the attached preset and do the...

    FC Switch Jacks

    I apologies if this is obvious, but I didn't find my answer in the manual. Does the switch jacks, using a TSR cable have the ability to switch channels on an actual amp if plugged in it's footswitch jack?

    4CM - Humbuster Cable Noise

    I've recently been using the III in 4CM with my Friedman BE100 and it sounds great! To remedy the extra bit of noise I have made, using the diagram provided in the manual, a humbuster cable that goes from Output 3 to the input of my amp. And wadda ya know! it does work! With the cable...

    BE-100 Model Cab Suggestions

    This has been my all time favourite for a long while. I own and actual BE100 and the Axe nails the tone. I typically load up some form of 3rd party IR to use with it but am looking to try something new. Possibly something stocking in the III. What are your favourite IRs to use with this model...

    Two Amp Blocks In a Patch

    I read somewhere with the Axe-Fx II, it was a situation where the amp blocks ran at half the resolution when using two amp blocks in a patch. Is that the case with the III? I could hear it slightly with the II and I THINK I hear it with the III. Or is it just my ears playing trick on me??

    Amp Selection

    I am not sure what causes it but at some point, not always, when I using the front panel, the amp model changes on it's own to something other than I have selected. When this happens I'll select the amp block and and press edit. When I try and change the amp model, the onscreen selection appears...

    Anyone here planning on keeping their current AXE FX and combining the two in your rig? If so, how do you plan on using both? Might be (no... it is) complete overkill, but I plan on utilizing both for gigging, some how. Maybe connecting one to the other by SPDIF. As to how I would use it and...

    First Week With The AX8

    I'd just like to give a big hats off the Fractal team. This unit is stellar! I was using an Axe FX II a couple years back and gigging with it a couple times a week. While I was satisfied with the unit, I always felt it was lacking something. So I decided to go back to an analog amp with a load...

    5F8 Tweed - The Eagles - Take It Easy

    Very surprised with this amp! We recorded our set last night and this was the first time we played this one live. So there are a few awkward moments.

    FX LOOP Block

    I am currently experimenting with adding a Strymon Timeline, H9 and Strymon BlueSky in stereo in the FX Loop of the Axe Fx 2. From what I have read so far you should adjust input 2 in the I/O menu to just tickle the clip lights on Input 2 and turn Output 2 all the way up for unity volume. My...

    Direct FOH - Delay Block Question

    I am finding that when I dial in my lead patches at home on headphones, specifically the delay block, the delay is not as apparent when I am playing direct FOH. It's like it gets lost. I have to compensate it by dialing in much more mix. Just wondering if there is any reason for this.
