    Fractal bot defaults to backing up presets & cabs & layouts & settings before upgrading.

    The number of recent posts from users who don’t have backups of their axe and lost something when upgrading makes me think that fractal bit should default to performing a backup of user data when updating the firmware. There should be a setting to disable this so that people can opt out

    Wish more controls for power amp trem (particularly phase)

    it would be nice to have more fine control over the tremolo in the amp block, particularly, it would be nice to be able to control the phase. i know this isn’t accurate to the amps we‘re modeling, but neither are half the controls we already have :)

    Axe-Edit and Catalina?

    the 20011 macbook pro ive been running my rig with is finally showing its age, so it’s time to retire it and start using my 2016 one. only thing is, i’m running the Catalina beta on it. Does anyone have any experience with axeEdit under 10.15?

    Wish Manage Cabs should know when irs have been saved

    yes, it takes too long to scan every user cab every time you launch Manage Cabs, but it should be possible to mark a bank as updated when an ir is saved so Manage Cabs knows to refresh its list. maybe version numbers or timestamps?

    Manual errata

    while researching tone matching and IR capture, i discovered that under the section for IR capture the manual repeatedly says you have to use out 2 left, but the hardware supports either out 2 L or out 4L (which is a good thing for plugging into devices that don’t support XLR inputs)
