    BOSS ES- 8 and Fractal Axe-Fx II

    For gigging I use the Boss ES-8 to control presets and scene changes with my Axe FX II (I also own the III but currently have it in the studio and havent set the Boss up with it yet) Cant remember exactly how I set it up or what mode it's in. But in a nutshell I have Bank 1 as preset 1, and then...

    Mandolin Sim Preset?

    I seem to recall something put up on the forum a long time ago... I could be wrong though. 2 pitch blocks ring a bell?? One to give the 12 string effect and one to bring everything up an octave with a tone match somewhere after.. I think the form member "Moke" would be able to get this pretty...

    Great. This is something which will for sure benefit everyone.:) I did a wish list, way back when I bought my II, and wondered if the manual could be embedded into Axe Edit and viewed when you hover or use a shortcut key.

    Me actually, the results are great. I often bring the signal back to my DAW and blend it. I urge you to try it. Take some samples and then do a blind fold test, to see which amp/cab/mic sounds best... The truth is... Its all subjective. And one amp might like it, the other might not. If you...

    Replicate Electro-Harmonics Freeze

    I'm not so sure, I mean, I don't know this, but it doesn't sound like that is what is happening to my ears. There are Freeze presets out there, but all of them have the full wet reverb "washed out" or "smoothed" sound. With these pedals, the ring out or tail is far more harmonically complex...

    Implemented Active Channel Indicator (per block)

    Thanks. Is there a way to make this function "stick" as in keep the view of the blocks with the channel showing? As this is what I "wish" for.... Its much easier when "back and forthing" between scenes to see exactly what block is switching, and where.
  25. 5

    Implemented Active Channel Indicator (per block)

    I would like to be able to see what channel of every block is currently "ON" (in the current preset) A bit like with the II, you could see at a glance which blocks in your chain where using X or Y.

    Real tube amp instead of the amp block..a sort of 4CM

Could I ask, is it possible for the user to name each block? as in, I may set up a comp block and call it for e.g. Gilmour shine comp...And have the names of the individual blocks save with the preset? Also is there a facility to save multiple blocks to a temporary scratch pad...

Ultimately an "X" second digital capture of a 40 kilo...

    Wish Mic modeling

    Of course - and this is something I do almost all of the time. The mic simulation was a nice tool though I thought. Maybe Fractal can convert the EQ curves from the different microphones which can be exported to a PEQ block and given back to the community so people can use them as an EQ block...
  60. 5

    Wish Mic modeling

    Maybe so, but it sure was a useful tool for extra tone shaping of any particular sound you could be going for. FWIW - When auditioning the mics in the cab block, I never even used to look at what the mic actually was... Just listened for the instant tone change.... Like it, dont like it...

    Axe-Fx Looper & Beatbuddy? (MIDI Sync)

    I agree and understand your frustration entirely. Its unfortunate but true.

There has to be a reason why it has not been vastly improved, I cant see...

    Wow! Actually I really was not expecting that. That is a real shame
  65. 5


    Can I ask, do the modifiers attach to the block as per the Axe II, or can you have different modifier set up's per channel? e.g. with the II if you attach a modifier to the amp input gain on 'X' that modifier will also be there and acting on 'Y' - is this still the case for the III albeit with...

    Axe-Fx III Wish List

    I wish, the Axe III has the ability to save the firmware version changes along with the preset. So we can move forward with new firmware and most importantly bug fixes... But my previous preset creations will always sound exactly as initially intended, so I don't have 100's of hours wasted.

    Presenting... The Axe-Fx III

    No - Not at all actually - quite the opposite. Firmware updates which "change the tone" and add any other goodies too, new blocks & mainly bug fixes to all presets created after a firmware update, but doesn't change the tone of anything Ive already created previously.

    Presenting... The Axe-Fx III

    Err, your entitled to your opinion obviously, but for me, it's big deal. There are many different firmwares over the past few years where I have "perfected" the tone I want, not just one.
