    Anyone using both the FC-6 and FC-12?

    Interested in this, especially as it relates not using FC6 or FC12 depending on the size of the gig. My question is can you create separate layouts by device without messing up the original? so I have I have an FC12 and want to create separate layouts for a more portable gig with the FC6 is this...

    FC Features Notes for Firmware 5.07

    So Chris I assume that means that the external switches can trigger other devices like in the old MFC days? I'm assuming a control switch on the FC set to do this can then be mimic'd by the external switch? That would be awesome!! A video would be helpful as yours always are! Thanks Fractal!! MM

    CS for Amp Input Boost carries across presets??? - It's Back in FW 4 and 5

    My issue is different I think. If I engage the boost using a CS and then switch presets it stays active even though the preset did not have it engaged in the initial state. This was fixed in FW 3 but seems to have reapoeared. @chris ??

    You may be on to something here though I've looked at the WIKI and haven't yet found where that is set. And even so, while I get this across scenes, wouldn't the changing of preset restore the values of THAT preset as saved?

    No. But if it is turned on in the prior preset while playing it seems to carry forward to the next one. It seems like it carries the most recent state.

    Love 3.0 , but....

    There is definitely a difference but it's much better and I think tweak able now. It was very hard with the "comb filtering thing" and I think I can adjust with presence, less bass or treble but I'll play it in a rehearsal setting first. The response from Cliff, Matt and Chris is always amazing.

    Huge Difference! Thanks so much Cliff! I would have never figured that out and not sure why it was set that way.

    Probably Obvious but Cool

    In the old days. if you turned on an effect by assigning it to a pedal via a modifier, the state of that effect would not update on the MFC as you turned off and on. Because the FC gets its signals from the AXE it looks like the effects state always update from the pedals which is cool. Well...
