    Sorry man but this is so far away from PERFECT.... the standard Wah housing seems perfect but Mission pedals are way overpriced and not usable for volume... as a wah okay but for anything else.... so I have to figure something out as it seems.

    This REALLY shows how a third row of Switches is missing the FC. Now every Expression Pedal is either too big or too small, even the Fractal EV Pedals. This is quite an odd decision for me. I would love when they offer another one beside FC6 and FC12 the so called FC18

    Axe-Fx III sounds JUST LIKE MY MESA BOOGIE MARK V!

    which way round? I didn't read anywhere which one is which. The track itself is titled differently than your description. The overtone behavior is still different and bloody obvious so for me it doesn't matter which way round. For me first clip is Axe Fx and second one is MKV
  29. Alexis

    Axe-Fx III sounds JUST LIKE MY MESA BOOGIE MARK V!

    sorry but the distorted overtones have a totally different character than on your real MKV, they are way harsher, raspier and squirelly. On the real deal it sounds like the overtones compared to the normal note has a slight high roll-off. the base note you here is pretty spot on with the Axe...

  56. Alexis

    Axe-Fx III Dimensions and Weight

    well, the lid gives you around 4-5cm more as far as I know. so as long as the unit doesn't stick out from the rack I guess you can still leave the plugs connected.

    I wanted to ask why the Axe III is capable of only using 2 Amps at the same time. It has so much more power and I anticipated it to be having at least 4 Amps on hi-res or even more on low-res. Right now even the Line 6 Helix can use more amps at the same time and I own both devices Fractal and...
