    @AlGrenadine: I pulled my trusty AxeFx II plus RAC12 out of the closet after a lengthy phase of enjoying my tube amps. Upgraded to ARES 2.0 firmware. Now I realise that the RAC doesn't seem to properly communicate with Axe II anymore: It fetches the correct patch name, but doesn't reflect any...

    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 2.00 Firmware Release

    Thanks Cliff and team - this is what makes Fractal so special! I can‘t think of any other company that would provide any updates on legacy product firmware. As others said before: They may not make any money out of these updates DIRECTLY - but it creates super customer retention. Should I ever...

    How to make Dumble Steel String Singer Preset

    Hi Austin, I spend some time to play your preset and tweaked it a bit. Learned a lot during the process: - for some reason I thought, I had already Q8.02 on my axe. When trying to load your preset, I discovered I was still on 7.02. The update alone brought quite a change to the positive (across...
