    Guitar / Computer Chair?

    Another huge thumbs up for SoundSeat. I bought mine in 2008 and it still works great - never had an issue with it. Might be more expensive than a cheap chair elsewhere, but it is a quality product and mine still looks new. I needed to change the gas lift cylinder height at one point and the...

    FC-12 Default Layout 7 Not Acting Right

    While your point is valid regarding customizability, there is still the fundamental issue that a global bank size actually makes no sense and causes issues like this (as I reported in that other thread).

    Fixed Show FC Screen LCD cutoff view

    I would prefer to have the ability to configure a short preset name and short scene names that are suitable for the FC - and not lose my extremely useful and informational longer preset/scene names that I can view on the Axe-Fx or in Axe-Edit. Point is, I don't want to have to perform major...

    Question: Can you do this?

    See the "PER-PRESET METHOD 1: OVERRIDES" section on page 34 of the manual. This section explains exactly what you need to do. It seems like you have some confusion on what is possible. To be clear, you can define the global behavior for any switch on any layout to have a layout link for tap or...

    FC-6 First Impressions

    I think he means about at the 9:13 mark, but it is really just the way the camera is picking up the color (e.g. bright red vs dim red for scene on/off) as it is not possible to have different colors for different states of a button. It just kind of looks that way in the video.

    Wish: Bank Size Per Layout

    Exactly, and on the FC-12 that is what factory layouts 7 and 1 do, respectively. It doesn't seem that a global bank size makes sense on the FC in the way it did on the MFC-101. On the FC, the bank size (as far as I can tell) is really only there to support the preset in bank switch functions...

    Wish: Bank Size Per Layout

    Currently, the bank size (as configured in the FC Controllers Config menu) applies to all layouts. It would be a lot more flexible if this could be configurable per layout - or possibly even automatically determined per layout based on the number of preset in bank switches configured in the...

    [solved] Why does my FC-6 not work? Firmware 1.04?

    This has been my experience as well. I was planning on getting an FC-12 but grabbed an FC-6 since my name came up on the list. I don't think people realize how flexible the FCs are, how easy they are to configure, and how much can really be accomplished with just six buttons. I was really...

    Bug: Layout Link for Tap Triggers for Hold

    I Thought The "Tourette's Tuner" Was To Be Fixed In 7.0

    It doesn't matter. That is, I did play with adjusting the input level - all the way up to 100% even and it did not improve the tuning stability. So I just put it back the way I had it (i.e tickle the red as documented in the manual).

    I Thought The "Tourette's Tuner" Was To Be Fixed In 7.0

    The old tuner (pre-6.0) was definitely much more stable for me (i.e. no complaints). As the OP said, the high E and B strings have the "shakes". I get this with a Les Paul, Strat, and Tyler Variax (both magnetic pickups and models). With my PolyTune pedal, everything is rock solid and tuning is...

    On the Axe II, make sure you set Send Realtime Sysex to None in the MIDI menu. Otherwise, you will get error 18 in firmware update mode on the MFC. (Trust me, I know!)
