    Axe-Fx III Tuner Offsets

    Has there been any change to the range of the tuner offsets in the Axe-Fx III? Personally, it's my only wish for the new tuner... I would love it if the offsets could be increased from +/- 25 cents to +/- 50 cents. I use the offset for simple, quick and accurate tuning with a Hipshot Xtender on...

    Axe-Fx II / USB / Pro Tools 11 / OSX issue - Help would be appreciated!

    I’m running Mac OS X 10.9.5, a Presonus Firestudio Mobile Interface and an Axe-Fx II Mark 1 with Quantum 1.0 FW. My usual DAW of choice is Logic X, or sometimes I use Presonus Studio One 2, tracking guitars from the Axe-Fx over USB with no problems. I have owned Pro Tools 11 for a couple of...

    Significance of italics in Axe-Manage Presets window

    I just upgraded and noticed that many of my presets (and the new v15 factory presets) appear italicized in the Axe-Manage Presets window in Axe-Edit version 3.0.12. I know that both the cab picker and the cab window of Axe-Manage use italics to designate Ultra-Res cabs. I can't figure out what...

After the conversion, one of the 3 folders in the top level of the destination (converted) directory had it's name amended with the .sit extension. I repeated that particular conversion with...

    Axe Edit not obtaining correct data with custom MFC Scene IA ON/OFF

    I have been using all 8 scenes on my MFC recently and have programmed the IA switch controlling scene 7 to trigger scene 3 when it is pressed a second time. This works great, however when recalling a new patch using Axe Edit, the hardware will be set to scene 3 while Axe Edit displays scene 1...

    Bug? FW10 Output Tab Interface Anomaly

    When changing scenes in the Layout -> Output tab by using the Quick Control A knob, the current patch's CAB BLOCK number is (very) briefly displayed in the dB field. For example, the stock Friedman BE preset reads 0.00 dB, but will briefly stutter "FACTORY 103" when changing between scenes...

    I'm trying to troubleshoot a problem with the Ethernet communication between my MFC-101 (FW 2.02) and my Axe FX II (FW 6.02). This connection has worked flawlessly for the 4 months that I have had the Axe II until suddenly a few days ago patch names no longer displayed on the MFC and I...

    Tone Match frequency analysis - TMA block, exported cab and double tone matching.

    After having a bit of a play with V6 tone matching, I found my most accurate matches were obtained when I applied a high pass blocking filter at 80Hz after the TMA block. Just for my own curiosity I ran a frequency analysis (using FuzzMeasure for OS X) to compare between the original, TMA block...

    Totalsync - Does it need to be enabled?

    I just updated to V6 and FW 2.01 for the MFC and I'm using a cat5 cable for communication. Does the new Totalsync feature need to be enabled in a menu somewhere? By default, changes from the front panel of the Axe II aren't changing the MFC. I'm not using song or set mode or preset remapping. I...

    DIY Ethercon Passthrough Box w/ Selectable External Stomp Switches for MFC 101

    Just thought I'd share a simple wiring diagram for a box I made a couple months ago that I am finding extremely useful. It enables the use of all 4 external switch inputs on the MFC without the physical footprint of 4 stomp switches, using a sliding switch to choose between external switch...

    Axe II issues - Blank screen, audio crackles.

    So picked up my Axe II yesterday afternoon, patiently left it boxed up and went to my bass gig last night. When I got home at 2:30 am, I thought I'd better not start on a full night of endless new-axe-tweekery, so I left my guitar to the side and just loaded the OSX (I'm running 10.7.3) usb...

    Axe II + Presonus Firestudio Mobile Aggregate Device?

    I'm running Logic on a mid 2011 iMac running OSX 10.7.2. Can anyone tell me if the Presonus Firestudio Mobile and the Axe II behave themselves nicely when set up as an aggregate device? I know some interfaces don't seem to like it.

    I'm using an expression pedal tied to External 2, and connected to an MFC-101, to control the Master Feedback (between 45% and 100%) in a delay block in one of my patches. This works fine. I am having some trouble trying to configure the patch using PC Reset so that when it initially loads, the...

    Solution to Wah/Whammy routing issue when MFC not plugged in needed! Any ideas?

    I'm using an MFC-101 with a spring-loaded Mission pedal connected to expression 1. My patches are set up so that the expression pedal auto-engages wah by default, and with a button on the MFC I can switch this (via a mixer block) to Whammy or other pitch block activities - as described in the...
