    Bug? FM3 Output suddenly goes silent

    I have experienced the same issue when playing music via USB and guitar at the same time. (Only plying music via USB with no guitar connected or only playing guitar with no USB audio processing is fine.) It happends regardless of FM3-Edit being open or not; FM3 HP, FW 1.06 Beta 3, Windows 10...

    FM3 Firmware 1.06 Public Beta 2

    I had the same problem and the reason was that the Input to the Pitch Follower was set to Input 2. See this thread: https://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/pitch-follower-not-working-responding-input-source-for-the-pitch-controller-was-factory-set-to-input-2.163770/

    Not a Bug Pitch Follower not working/responding - Input Source for the Pitch controller was (factory) set to Input 2

    Thanks - that solved it for me as well! But I really think that Input 1 should be the default value for the "Input Source". Anyway, it's not a bug. Do anyone have a good explanation on why the default value is Input 2 ??

    Not a Bug Pitch Follower not working/responding - Input Source for the Pitch controller was (factory) set to Input 2

    FW 1.05 and FM3 Edit 1.01.07. I have tried to allocate the Pitch Follower to Input Trim (in the amp block) both from the FM3 Edit and front panel of the FM3 but the FM3 does not respond on pitch changes from the guitar. I also have an Axe Fx III and there it works as supposed so I am quite sure...

    Bug? PC and DAW audio glitches and goes out of tune with digital artifacts every 10-15 seconds

    I experienced the same issue but using another USB-port on the PC has cured the problem. (FW 1.05 and WIndows 10)...... very strange!

    Power Supply AC Line Frequency

    My understanding is that the Power Supply AC Line Frequency relevant to the performance of the noise gates is set from the front panel; Setup-> Global Settings -> Bottom of the Config tab (AC Line Frequency). OR: Axe Edit III; Setup -> Config (AC Line Frequency is found bottom right). If I am...

    Can a switch increment channels on multiple blocks?

    I can do this with my RJM MasterMind but not on my FC6. One workaround is to use Scenes for this, but I want to stay within the same Scene and kick in various effects and change Channel on others using a single switch. The idea is to have a "Master" solo/lead switch working on all Scenes. See...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 11.02 Public Beta #5 (Beta_4)

    It has happened to me a couple of times that the sound has degraded slightly after installation of a new FW but re-installing the FW (and re-setting the system settings/parameters) have always provided a "better than ever" sounding Axe Fx III. I always take a beck-up before installation and just...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 11.00 Public Beta

    I have loaded FW11b and its sonic and feel/response qualities are beyond belief. So far I have tested with RCF NX12-SMA, Atomic CLR and in-ear. My preferred way into the new impedance modelling is that existing presets should be kept unaltered (i.e. FW 10 or earlier). After all we have tweaked...

    Axe-Fx Firmware Version 8.00

    OK, but how can I accomplish what I want to do? (Use a Control Switch on the FC-6 to simultaneously change the Bypass State on some Blocks and Channel on another). And why do the AXE FX III respond to External pedals/switches connected to the FC-6? I can easily do this on my RJM MM GT22 so I am...

    Axe-Fx Firmware Version 8.00

    As I stated in my post they definately do in my set-up. I rock the Expression pedal connected to the FC-6 and the Channel in the Reverb block nicely changes from A to B to C to D and then it starts over again with further movement of the pedal. So I am a bit confused....

    Axe-Fx Firmware Version 8.00

    I attached an External Switch to the FC-6 and mapped it to the Reverb Block on the "Channel" page on the AXE FX III (using the "Learn" function. Then I could change Channel on the Reverb Block but only toggle between Channels A and D (I assume A is "min value" (0) and D is "max" value (3 or 127)...

    I am not able to send MIDI messages from a switch set up as a Control Switch my FC-6 (FW 1.09) to the AXE FX III (FW 8.00).

    Change Bypass status on some blocks and Channel on another block with one switch

    Thanks for chiming in but I have already tried that (as mentioned in my first post I have read the manual;)). Just for testing I tried to use the same CS to select Scenes (also on Page 45 in the AXE FX III manual and Page 39-40 in the FC Manual) but that did not work either. I also tried the...

    Change Bypass status on some blocks and Channel on another block with one switch

    I have searched the forum and owners manual but without success on how to achieve this. My intention is to have a "lead" switch engaging e.g. GEQ in front of the amp, volume boost (GEQ post amp) and delay (using a Control Switch to control the Bypass status of the relevant blocks) and with the...

    Is it me? Does 6.03 suck? My live sounds are now terrible.

    My experience (see post #5) is that all parameters seemed to be fine including Power Amp and Cab Modeling.

    Is it me? Does 6.03 suck? My live sounds are now terrible.

    I have experienced a bad sounding Axe Fx III after an FW-update a couple of times lately. To me it seems like the "badness" hits different amps in different ways (i.e. some amps sound fine whereas others sound worse). Re-installing (even re-downloading and re-installing) the FW has cured the...

    [closed] Have there been any more 6.x beta sightings ?

    My Axe Fx III lost the inputs (no signal entering the unit from any of the inputs) and this was also reported by someone else on the Forum. I tried to re-install the 6.0 beta (from 5.08) and the same thing happened. No sign of hanging an everything seemed to be fine (including communication with...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 4.00 Beta

    The Delay Block - I can neither find the "Config" button on Axe Edit III nor the equivalent function on the front screen (i.e. the possibility to manually set Time and Tempo separately for Left and Right.

    Axe-Edit III 1.00.01

    Great update and I am very happy that I jumped on the "Fractal train" six years ago. I have found one small error on the Graphic EQ's; when selecting any of the two new 10 Band 2/3 Octave EQ's the frequencies displayed are 31Hz to 16kHz, i.e. the same as the "old" 10 Band EQ's. The frequencies...

    Block for A/B switching?

    As stated in the Wiki the Multiplexer can only run one line (or source) at a time. So if you want to run two amps in parallel or morph between them using an expression pedal the Mixer block is your friend. Simply by-passing one of the parallel amps (set the "Bypass mode" to "Mute") will also...

    Modeler Stress Test

I dialed up the Factory Preset "Deluxe Verb", set the Bass, Treble and Volume to...

    I left my unit (XL) off over night but the same problem exist after re-powering this morning, switching presets and so on. I guess that this indicate that the problem is related to the XL and not the XL+. What about the Mark 1 and 2 units? And BTW I also have an AX8 so I do know how to live...

    Scene Controllers are your best friend and are stored per preset.

Then you have to set the values of the Scene Controllers for the Scenes in that...

    Funny story about how the Axe FX won - again!

    I guess the FAS-amps are the equivalent to the Yamaha DG philosophy (naming philosophy only - no quality of sound and feel comparison). My understanding of the FAS-amps is that they are Cliff's tweaked and optimized version of the "cornerstone" amps; Marshall, Fender, Vox and Mesa just to...
