    MIDI Bypass state of blocks doesn't change after setting scene

    mTroll is part of a hybrid system but you can use it without any input hardware at all: mTroll | SourceForge.net You don't program it - it reads a text configuration file. So you essentially program it by writing xml. There is a default basic config file for the Axe-Fx II. More info here...

    Does anyone know why the Axe2 doesn't have midi toggle CCs?

    The point of a toggle command is that you don't have to know the current value. Your controller sends a command that tells the receiving device to flip the value that it has. The controller doesn't need to maintain the value.
