    FC Windows, just too small

    The original answer I got from cliff about the design choice for the screens was that these are the best for operating in bright sunlight. That may well be true, but I never(well, very rarely) play in direct sunlight. I guess they are also cheaper than other options like OLED, which I have...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 12.01

    I have noticed that AxeEdit isn't refreshing the AMP blocks (possibly affects others but I haven't researched)... FW12.01 and AxeEdit 1.04.00. To reproduce, load a preset that you know what amp it should use. Likely it will show you the last amp that was modified and all the controls at noon...

    Noise gate at input vs sidechain to input

    Just out of interest because i haven’t checked in a while... has the gate acquired an inverse side chain detect yet? I have a method for doing it, but wondered if the block got an upgrade and i missed it. (I use this inverse gate to control my guitar input whilst playing a piano and vs versa)

    I have noticed since the “update to messaging” for axeedit3, that the Mix parameter is often not correct (currently on a delay that i noticed it again).

    Storing FC-6 in a rack?

    I had a laptop on one of those drawers... they are heavy. I don’t think you’ll get the unit in because of the close dimension issue of 88 vs 89m. That draw will eat some of that.

    FC layout question

    If you use “per preset” override (there are 24 per preset overrides available) you could create (24/6)=4 [FC6] or (24/12)=2 [FC12] entirely custom layouts per preset.

    Slick expansion module for FC's

    It is the “pursuit of marginal gains” (no pun intended). I’ve experienced this in a number of situations/professional endeavours and whilst each “gain” is small, the sum of all these things yield real distinction between similar “contenders”.... I view each FW as a marginal gain, I might not...

    There is no midi on the FC devices. The AxeFX3 has the midi ports and sends midi from there. There is a MIDI block which can send commands on Scene Change There are Control Switches (an FC concept) which can also have MIDI Payloads assigned)

    Intermittent non operation of stand in switch

    Simonp54. ;) I’m actually using the switch “off stage” with my hand to start an intro track via CS MIDI. My preset is a ”mute” preset so probably quite low CPU. A long cable tho....? And a quick “HOLD” timeout.

    Intermittent non operation of stand in switch

    I’ve recently had some problem with stand in switches not activating. The HOLD item always seems to fire correctly, but the PRESS sometimes doesn’t work. I’m using new / validated cables and the MOSKY switch units. I was wondering whether anyone else has experienced similar behaviour?

It could be the “cores” aren’t big enough and the voltage presented is marginal to the FC. Eg. Dodgy connector...

    Axe-Edit 3 still slow in FW8.0

    Thing is... if it is that, then why is it killing the communications protocol so much? Messages to show the moving needle? Some say “kitchen sink high cpu” preset and all ok... so what is generating so much communication traffic? If a high cpu preset works fine?
