    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 6.00 Public Beta

    Totally understand that reluctance. However, consider this...but only if you’re comfortable with a possible problem... I’ve installed (and even gigged) betas since, I think, 17.x. I’ve never experienced an upgrade issue until today. I don’t mind at all that there was an issue with my upgrade...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 6.00 Public Beta

    Reverting to 5.08 seems to work fine. #whew Linking to video showing the startup issues in case this helps troubleshoot the problem. 6.0Beta Install Failure - Problems on Reboot Other pertinent (?) info: Tried with and without having my FC-6 attached during reboot. Same issue both times.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 6.00 Public Beta

    Yikes! Bad things happening here. Update looked liked it worked. Rebooted. Startup messages were displaying as normal but the color of the menu started shifting to white then black. Emergency reboot and DDR test passed. Tried it again. “Update successful. Please power cycle the unit”. Same...

    Ain't No Grave - Easter 2019

    Ain't No Grave from our Easter services yesterday. "Interesting" weekend to say the least... - lost the system that controlled IEM mixes right before soundcheck - sound tech rigged a temp system that worked great....right up until... - the main system unexpectedly came back online (and cycled...

    FC-6 Losing Main LCD Display

    Emailed support - will post back here with updates. 3 things worth mentioning: 1) Made it through the first set of our second service with no issues. Yay! 2) When it has gone out, the LCD still appears backlit - there’s just nothing displaying there. 3) The only thing that’s changed is that I...

    FC-6 Losing Main LCD Display

    Anything is possible, I guess. However after I’ve lost display and without touching the FC at all, I can power down the III, wait, power back up and the LCD displays just fine. Thank goodness I’ve got the III sitting right next to me so I can see the tuner.

    FC-6 Losing Main LCD Display

    Sound checking using the latest firmware and I’m losing the main LCD display after some period of time. Tried power cycling everything and things worked....until I lost the display again. Individual LCDs still are displaying and everything seems to be working. Still - kinda scary.

    So, the Dumble thing...

    I dig it, Leon! I've wanted to dig into the Dumbles for a while. I'm very much into riding my volume knob (and/or foot pedal) to clean up my sound or add a little more grit so I really love the range of tones that you get that in that video. Inspiring as always! Side note: My dog is named Aja...

    Angels We Have Heard on High

    From Christmas Eve services yesterday. Taken from our Facebook live feed so audio/visual slightly out of sync. Never posted a link here before, so be gentle with me. :-) Used an @austinbuddy Friedman patch - adding in only my delays and reverb. I’m so incredibly happy with that purchase and I...

    The Complete Axe-Fx III Master Class with Cooper Carter - Available NOW!

    Hi Cooper. Congrats on going live with the course. It's obvious that you put a TON of work into it. I've already picked up several gems - including one I'm eager to incorporate into rehearsal tonight! Question: Are videos still in the process of uploading? I'm not seeing any videos after...

    Yamaha HS8 Monitors

    +1 on the HS8. Very happy with mine. I don't think I could have done any better in that price range.

    Anyone using Austin Buddy presets live?

    I've found the AustinBuddy presets to be FAR superior to anything I created from scratch and I have used many presets live. Bought them for both the AX8 and AxeFx III. My only tweaks have been to roll off some bass (on some) and add my own delays and reverbs. The best compliment on my sound I...

    Getting a preset into a scene

    This is bordering more on "wish" - but it is related to the problem the OP is trying to solve and the comments made by others. Mods - please feel free to move it if you like. TL;DR Sure would be cool to import a block channel from a different preset without ever leaving my current preset...

    Wish View Tapped Tempo BPM on Display Screen

    @Bakerman - you nailed it. That was exactly the issue. I was sending 000 and 127 values. Changing those to OFF and 127 got rid of my goofy tempo issue. As for average vs last 2...I've used last 2 ever since it was introduced. I thought the "average" option took the average of the last 10 taps...

    Wish View Tapped Tempo BPM on Display Screen

    Yeah - I’m gonna have to do something or I just can’t keep using the III live. I’ve got one more song to get through today then I’ll have a couple of weeks to investigate more deeply. I suspect that is all my fault and due to how I setup the MFC. If I “pop” the tap, I get reasonable tempos as...

    Wish View Tapped Tempo BPM on Display Screen

    Just got nailed again in a live setting. MFC MkIII setup to tap tempo. AxeFX III setup to use last two. (Can’t use average because transitions are too quick between songs) We end one song and immediately cue the next. Click track starts and I start tapping. Tempo is wonky, I don’t realize it...

    No axe edit for Mac?

    Totally agree that front panel editing is very nice...however... Without AxeEdit, there's no way to copy a channel from one preset and paste it into a different preset. That made it more difficult than I would have liked to have 1 preset with amp/cab/drive ABCD values that came from other...

    Wish View Tapped Tempo BPM on Display Screen

    For live use - I'd really like the ability to see the tempo as I'm tapping it in. I realize that may be available on the upcoming FCs, but I'm going to be playing live before those are available. It would be really nice if the screen could switch to a tempo page (with a readable tempo on it) and...

    Axe-Fx III wait list: Let us know when you get notified...

    There’s a really good episode of the Freakonomics podcast where they talk about secondary markets - primarily as they relate to ticket sales. Reputation and public relations troubles are cited as major reasons for “under pricing” a product - even though economic theory would say you are leaving...

    Axe-Fx III wait list: Let us know when you get notified...

    Honestly, I had the same thought and quickly came to the same conclusion. The fact that I could do that didn’t mean that I should do that. I’ll sleep well tonight with my decision and worry about paying for FCs later. I ended up spending this morning hooking my MFC up to my AX8 to “practice”...

    Judging from past days, I'd guess we're done for invites today. Looking at the original waitlist thread and comments in this thread, here's what I've seen. (Totally non-scientific, info for fun only, blah blah blah) As of right now - the latest known confirmation time is 8:38 EST. I've...

    At some point, as @Admin M@ said on Monday on FB, the floodgates are going to open. Remember - the Fractal website says you are able to purchase more than 1 unit when you receive confirmation. You don't have to join the waitlist multiple times. I forgot about that little nugget but it probably...

    So what's the latest waitlist time we've seen actually receive an invite - at least after FAS sales started following the waitlist order? I've seen one confirmed order for an 8:23AM EST waitlist spot. As of last evening, I saw one person who was 8:25AM EST still without an invite. I'm at...

    700+ Naked Amps TonePack for AX8 Release

    Gotta add my thanks to @austinbuddy for this awesome pack. It’s worth every penny! Last night, I used a single Dirty Shirley preset for my entire set at church. After the service, a pro bass player buddy came up and said the guitar sounded amazing in the room. Then the sound guy came up a few...

    York Audio Presents: The Bipolar Pack

    Thank you so much for the sample. Loved that (and the audio clips) so much, I bought the pack today. I was just floored by how good the Class A 15W IRs sounded with my DC-30 patch. Beyond the mixes and favorites, I love the organization of the IRs....ribbon, balanced, bright and dark. That alone...

    @AlGrenadine - My apologies if I'm hijacking the thread. I do iOS development for a living and I'm having crashes at startup. Thought it might help you to investigate crashes if you had some more data points. My gut feel is that the crashes are related to networking code. I haven't been...

    Might be forced to try something new....

    It's funny - and sorry for digressing - since I've had my AxeFx, I've heard it described in some very non-glowing terms by people who have no idea what it is. They see a "modeler - like a Line 6" (actual quote) and they make up their own mind about what it is before ever hearing it. However...

    Might be forced to try something new....

    I don't think you'll have any issue at all using the AxeFX for effects only. When I first got mine, I played two weekends into our church's backline Vox and it sounded really good. I had some issues gain staging because we aren't allowed to tweak the amps. I also had to tweak effects because I...

    Unearthing gems in older product threads

    Thanks for pointing these out again. I'd seen Yek's How To page a while ago, but I've learned SO MUCH since that time. Re-reading, especially now after really trying more of the amps, things make a lot more sense.

    VIDEO: Compression for more gain 2

    Great videos, Danny! I can't see me breaking that sound out at my church gig this weekend - but I *so* want to! :-) Hope you do decide to do a similar video from a bluesy/single-coil perspective. I'm sure it would be incredible. Peace, brother!

    Just bought an XL+. Can anyone recommend a small, budget foot controller?

    I got a used FCB1010 (with the Uno chip) for about $100USD a year ago and I just purchased a MFC which should arrive later this week. No doubt, the MFC is going to allow me to do a lot of things I couldn't do with the FCB - but the resale market for the FCB seems to *still* be around $100...

    Can't wait to see what y'all have planned! From my standpoint, I'd be really excited to hear about some strategies for attacking various tones with single coil pickups.

    Dotted 1/8 versus ms approach with delay....explain?

    When using tap tempo, you may want to check your settings as to which type of tap tempo is used...because there are two different options available. There's an "averaging method" and a "last two" method. (I've got mine set to "last two".) You can see more info on that (including Cliff's...
