    Mac newbie with Cubase 9.5

    I am coming from over 20 years of working with Cubase on a PC. Recently bought a 2018 Mac mini. I have my Axe setup in Asio setup as my device - all good with Axe edit so I know the connection is good. Recording via USB. Input levels are showing in Cubase on the transport bar. Nothing showing on...

    Axe-Fx III phasing issues?

    Have you tried any presets that were not converted? I had some issues as well when I converted. Are headphones plugged direct into the Axe? Have you tried creating a preset from scratch? Amp > Cab > Output?

    Axe-Fx III phasing issues?

    My guess is that if you listen with headphones the issue will not be there. Something external un-related to the Axe directly.

    FC6 vs Morningstar MC6

    Try setting the midi channel on the MC6 to a different one than the Axe. I have it setup this way so it won't send PCs to the MC. I only use it thru USB midi - the DIN ports have nothing plugged.

    FC6 vs Morningstar MC6

    I have both MC 6 and FC-6. MC 6 is great little unit. Pretty easy to program. Works good with Axe III but: Pros: - can do just about anything - very versatile - cheap - doesn't use wall wart - has an editor Cons: - no handshake sync for pedal states - not crazy about the size - too high and...

    Expanding on the FC-6

    Hey Leon, Great vids as always. What do you do when you go to another preset and want to make a small adjustment to the potentiometer? I assume it doesn't know where your feedback delay is set for example. So if the knob was at 12:00 for preset A and your feedback is set to 5% for preset B, what...

    MIDI Scene Selection issue

    What controller are you using? I used the MC 6 to change scenes using CC with no issues, so it does work.
  19. slinky005

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the questions

    Depends on your budget and how much functionality you need from a controller pedal. Low end of the budget: Morningstar MC 6 High end of the budget: Liquid Foot Pro If you can wait the Fractal FC6 and FC12 are obviously the ideal choice for the Axe Fx III Google is your friend.

    Preset Banks selected by number

    I believe what you're trying to accomplish would require many layouts. Layout A - 12 presets Layout B - 12 presets, etc. So if you need switches to select specific presets it seems you're limited to the number of layouts you can afford to re-program for this purpose.
  21. slinky005

    The 410 H has both serial and parallel.

    Layouts of Banks won't allow a "none" for preset engage

    Tried it here, it works. Great work Laresee. This right here is a great example of how flexible the FC is. It's a very specific setup most people will not need / use and actually very simple to setup.
  23. slinky005

    Layouts of Banks won't allow a "none" for preset engage

    If I understand correctly I think the unit is really designed to function where you select your bank on the same layout as the preset selections. The whole idea of jumping to different layouts to select banks and then jump back to your preset layout is not functional. Totally agree with using...
  24. slinky005

    Layouts of Banks won't allow a "none" for preset engage

    Probably not fully understanding your description. When I bank up or down I can see all the presets in that bank but I need to select a preset for it to load. Is this not the case for you?
  25. slinky005

    I can admit when I'm wrong. (Virtual Capo content)

    Using the VC instead of a capo for one of our tunes (half a step up). Great because tuning is always a bit wonky when I use a real capo. Works great.

    Per Preset Placeholder Layout

    Does anyone use this layout? Not a complaint, just curious. Obviously I can re-program this layout to do anything. I don't get its application or purpose.
  29. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    Got it to work. Usually a pretty technical guy but this one was boggling my head. The concept needed to be clarified as you said. In my head I kept thinking I had to turn off Layout link somewhere. Many thx to you guys.
  30. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    Still not happening for me. If anyone can chime in and let me know how to do this?
  31. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    Ok so I misunderstood your original instruction. I was looking for a way to assign the layout link globally and then override on a per preset basis. Now I understand that you're saying I would need to go into each preset and assign or not assign the layout link on a preset by preset basis. Thx.
  32. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    Global switch = Preset Preset switch is assigned to layout link (go to layout 2 scenes) On the per preset page, where do I go to configure a per-preset switch without layout link set?
  33. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    Layout link cannot be overridden independently You can override it but.... I don't understand.
  34. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    You can't override it per preset.
  35. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    No complaints here. There's always another way to things in the Fractal world. I will just override unused scenes for presets to solve my issue. In other words for the odd preset that I need to have quick access to another preset in the scenes layout. May sound convoluted but pretty easy fix for me.
  36. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    Been playing around with this on my FC-6. It seems to me that you can't override this function on a per preset basis because it's a global function. I would be happy to be wrong but I did the following: All songs on a different preset. Preset layout setup is 6 preset switches and two bank...

    Question: Can you do this?

    Not talking about assigning a button - this is a function that may live outside the normal overrides.

    Is it possible to use/overwrite factory IR

    Factory cabs are useless??? That's a first. Why do you need 8 cabs to get a good sound? The Axe sounds great out of the box and while the IR is a huge ingredient in getting a sound, there are so many things you can do to hone your sound. You are over complicating things for no reason.

    FC-6 great, but gap when channel switching drive block

    I tested this as I was curious. What constitutes a gap - a fraction of a second of silence? When I set it to change channels (not scenes) for the drive, I'm not getting a gap if it's bypassed on both channels. If I use two different settings I hear a "switching" but there's no actual gap.

    Is it possible to use a boss FS-6 plugged into both expression jacks and use them for preset up / down functionality?
