    Any way to "measure" remaining life of the battery?

    Any way to "measure" remaining life of the battery?

    Doesn't this seem like important information to add to the wiki?? The wiki just says replace it and replacing it won't void the warranty. No protocol there at all actually.

    Digitech Freqout pedal is legit

    I would have moved this thread to the lounge too, I was actually annoyed that you didn't originally but I digress. Good thread but definitely belongs in the lounge, you could make that argument about any random pedal or looper using it with the axe.

    Wow heck yeah. The only pedals I'm considering now are this and a looper since the looper in the axe is so dismally short!

    I get why some people gripe but I don't mind starting from scratch and tone tweaking at all. I think it's fun! Out of all the firmware updates maybe a couple of times it sounded (worse-subjective), but then another update came out and it sounded better than ever. And even of those few times...

    When will the updates stop?

    That was just such a dumb question from the OP and the answer is so obvious. The updates will stop when there's no hardware left, like the ultra - there was no more space left. And to the second part of the question, there's no obligation to update in the first place. The OP is a troll and...

    Wow, so easy to get all of these tones on the axe fx already. And there's a noise gate as well. Smh... edit- Looks like a cool pedal, and the features are cool for an analogue purpose, and modern applications, I just really don't see the need for it to be modeled!
