    FracTool - ultimate multitool for FAS devices

    Just tinkering with my new FM3.... sooo excited! :) I've got it connected to USB and FM3-Edit is working.... I bring up latest FracTool and the FM3 on the interface is greyed out??? Nothing on the console shows FracTool reaching out the check what FAS device is connected. Seems to be working...

    AF3 + FM3: Axe-Edit co-exist???

    Sorry if this has been covered... If my PC has both an AF3 and FM3 plugged into USB simultaneously, can Axe-Edit figure this out? 2 instances? Just curious... (I guess this question applies to all FAS software too... Fractal-Bot, Cab-Lab, etc. )

    Latching Switch into FC12?

    OK... There seems to be some confusion here and it may be on my part. For the record, I've not ruled anything out. I've tried several cables (standard patch, TS and TRS) and used a multimeter to check the switch. Not ruling anything out. My SP-1 has an LED on the switch and between the LED and...

    Bug? Bypass with modifier connected not visually toggling?

    Please have a look at the other thread and let me know if I missed something. I tried both FC menu Bypass control and with an in-block modifier... The pics I attached are after disabling the FC Bypass and trying the in-block modifier option. Good thought but not a conflict as far as I know...

    Bug? Bypass with modifier connected not visually toggling?

    Running lastest: 1.00.12 I've been playing with new FC12 today to use toe switch on my Mission pedal to toggle the bypass on the Wah block. If you're interested in that saga, see below: https://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/latching-switch-into-fc12.146556/ I found an interesting UI glitch...

    Latching Switch into FC12?

    Well, I tried the Pedal4 and Switch 1/2 inputs on the FC. Similar issue from both options whereas Pedal input on AF3 worked like a charm immediately. I guess I'll try Switch 3/4 later tonight but I'm not optimistic. If nobody else chimes in, I'll contact FAS directly for some support/ideas.

    Latching Switch into FC12?

    OK... FAS may need to give more insight... Moved the pedal switch connection to the Pedal1 input on the AF3 via a TRS cable and the modifier method of monitoring source (yellow cursor) is 100% reliable. The cursor is moving from 0% (lower right) to 100% (upper left) of the graph on every switch...

    Latching Switch into FC12?

    Seems to be 100% reliable via the Bypass Page method (except that my polarity is reversed from desired and not in sync with LED indicator on pedal). At this point, I'm not suspecting switch or cable as I've done enough messing around to convince myself that these are working. Still open to the...

    Latching Switch into FC12?

    No polarity on the pedal... I was hoping to accomplish on the FAS side. Typically, FAS thinks of everything! :) For reference, I attaching a couple of images. While looking at the modifiers in AxeEdit, I refer to cursor in the lower left as 0% and upper right as 100%. When I toggle the latching...
  11. kartman

    Latching Switch into FC12?

    Yes - modifier on the Bypass function of within the block. The global bypass mapping is new to me but this makes sense. I tried this approach and it seems to be functioning as expected. This is good and new learning to boot! One question: how do I invert the action? My pedal has an LED on it...

    Alice in Chains style Auto-Wah?

    Maybe I'm wrong but a bunch of the Alice in Chains lead tones seem to have a mild wah sound to them. My guess would be envelope driven versus pedal controlled but I have no experience setting something like this up in an FAS preset. Example: Anyway, any AF2 to convert (loving Fractool!) or...

    Fractool: AF2 to AF3 question

    Latest version of the tool is working amazing. Pulling in some of my AF2 faves and I'm noticing the hardware input is hotter or the amp block input is a bit friskier.

    Axe-Fx III hardware failure rate?

    While I agree, there is something that ISN'T the same with 'any brand'... Support.

Just sayin' If...

    I have used this strategy before. It worked well. Slightly tangent question: Is there a way to do this with DISCRETE values in the scene controller? It's been a while but I recall it was driven by a curve, I think. I found it to be tedious to adjust the volume on a specific scene without...

    AxeFX3 <--> AxeEdit3 <--> Upcoming FCs: MIDI?

    I didn't say there was an issue, did I? Sorry if that was implied... It just seemed odd to me that, when dealing with proprietary tools like FractalBot, AxeEdit, and the new FC controllers, FAS would choose MIDI... I really want the FC controller, AxeEdit, and AxeFX3 unit to all stay in sync...

    AxeFX3 <--> AxeEdit3 <--> Upcoming FCs: MIDI?

    My experience with FAS is that everything is well thought out and, as a result, is well engineered... Now that AxeEdit3 (beta) is out, I find myself scratching my head. Is all the communication in an out of the AxeFX3 via MIDI over USB? If so, this seems odd to me and I'm hoping somebody can...

    Axe-Fx III wait list: Let us know when you get notified...

    While I respect your disappointment, "fair" or "unfair" can be debated endlessly. The reality is that FAS is running the "waitlist" for AxeFX3 units exactly the same way they've been run for other product releases. No promises... no surprises. I was a bit surprised to see them offer units at...

    How loud should the fan be?

    I've not seen the line at the contract manufacturer in China (I was in China at a CM last week... for all I know, FAS product was on an adjacent line! :) ) but I can pretty much 100% guarantee that these screws and nuts are manually installed. The use of manual labour and standard machine screws...
  29. kartman

    How loud should the fan be?

    To clarify... the 4x screws that I left "just tight enough" run through the fan housing/grommets/fan plate... and then are capped by Nylock machine nuts. They are not going to come loose and float around inside the unit due to insufficient torque. Should be good for life of fan now! :)

    Axe-Fx III Manual Update

    PG 156 - MIDI/REMOTE: OTHER PAGE (Tuner Parameter) - no mention of 0 and 127 as setting states. I agree that it might be clear to some or even most users. I'm not very experienced with MIDI. What you say makes sense but it would have been immediately understood if the manual was explicit...

The way I read the...

    I know you can do this for SCENES on the III now and rumour is that the new FCs will allow this function out of the box. I'd love to see a MIDI option to increment and decrement the PRESET... while I'm at it, a RETURN function might be useful for A/B comparison of presets? If the unit can...

    Basic 3-wire fan.... +ve, -ve, and tach. Speed can be throttled with any variable resistance fan controller (PC supply store).

    How loud should the fan be?

    100% agree. I do electronics cooling as part of my 'real life'. Our fan is circulating air inside the chassis, as far as I can tell. So, volumetrically, there so very little passing through the chassis apertures. My thought was mounting... rubber mounts can help with vibration but, in many...

    Freeze/Hold Patch for AxeFx3?

    How To: Axe II into Apollo 8 TB

    I don't use SR CONVERT but I do use the S/PDIF to avoid an extra layer of D/A + A/D conversion. For SR I just lock the Axe to the UAD and use the UAD at 48kHz sampling. I don't have much need to run higher rates but, when/if I ever do, the plan would be to let both devices use their internal...

    Ax-APE: Orange Tiny Terror

    Bravo! My recent thread about "Reality Mode" was misinterpreted by many, generated a wide range of opinions, and was eventually moved to the "wish list" sub-forum. All I was really tossing about was the good/bad implications of having such ready access to the inner workings of the wonderful FAS...

    External switch for Preset Increment... help

    I never bothered to set it up but I'd planned on using a MIDI controlled relay to emulate a footswitch in to the AxeFX (could be used for real amp channel switching too?) Like I said, I never actually tried it but I have all the hardware to make an attempt. Just a thought, if you're bent on...

    Compressor Block: confused by makeup function

    I agree... the comment wasn't meant to imply that my instruments weren't capable of being the source of the noise. Your input is well taken. My thought was only that I'd look beyond the guitar itself first. I swapped some cables and double checked the ground on my favourite patch cord. :) Seems...

    Compressor Block: confused by makeup function

    I appreciate the response... I trust the quality of the instrument... I have a favourite cable that I always use but I have a few spares about. I'll swap that and see if it cleans up the buzz. As always, this community is the best. Many thanx.
