    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 14.03

    14.03 -- system outputs max out and fails when loading / switching to this preset.

    Tuner Poll

    A thought - simplify all this with a note display option on the tuner allowing the user to: Display enharmonic equivalents as A) sharp B) flat This options would get you out of guessing what key or tuning the use is targeting and avoid the potential added confusion of displaying relative tuner...

    Flange from Within Your Reach by The Replacements

    I've been toying around with trying to approximate the flange from this song - link to a recording for those who are interested: I've seen a thread or two on flange effects and realize that what I don't know about how to work with flange could fill at least a wiki post or two. Is there...

    Vendor AustinBuddy's new Axe-Fx III 1400+ Naked Amps TonePack available now for firmware 12.x

    I know it's meant for a tele - but sounds great with a LP on rhythm pickup as well. So inspiring that I've written a lick so catchy it will return the guitar to pop music primacy.

    Vendor AustinBuddy's new Axe-Fx III 1400+ Naked Amps TonePack available now for firmware 12.x

    Bought the pack yesterday and want to reiterate how good and helpful this is to bringing the whole axe fx unit into focus. This helps make sense of the tremendous number of tools in the tool box. You've built useable and high quality modules out of a dizzying array of discrete parts that are...

    Setting Delays on the Axe-Fx III?

    Setting the delay characteristics via subdividing a beat vs. setting a specific millisecond delay time are mutually exclusive concepts. Try this to get over the hump: Enter the beats per minute (BPM) of the song you're playing as the tempo for the song THEN set the subdivision. This will...

    Can't get a good sound

    Is this is something that can auto set to 5.00 when power amp modeling is turned off to lessen the knowledge burden on the user. I bet it could go back to its original value when power amp modeling is turned back on as well.

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.02 Public Beta

    I don't join the congratulatory/thank-you circle J after firmware releases. I monitor the forum to make sure I'm aware of everything going on but I don't post. The last FW update (7.01) and the motor drive beta (7.02b) are different; Different enough that I'm joining the group grope. These...

    SRV little wing

    Starting patch for strats looking for something like SRV's tone on little wing. Playing with Larry Mitchell's patches and found that in combination they approached an SRV tone. Was not actively looking for this sounds but thought I'd throw together a recording of the patch with as much of...

    User cabs not working after upgrading to 2.04

    Sure there's some user error going on here however after upgrading to 2.04 my user cabs are no longer working/producing any sound. As a specific example - I had installed the preset 'ML Brit 1959' from cab pack 15 and saved the cab to user block #29. This preset had worked previously and now...

    Help/Challenge for the strat players in the group

    All - Many significant improvements to amp modeling and amp collection as we've moved from Qv1 to Qv2 that have moved us ever closer to the tonal mecca. Of course this statement also holds true for many prior FW advancements. A couple of the strattiest of the strat players that I've worked to...

    Axe-Fx II Firmware 20.00 Public Beta

    Maybe I'm ascribing benefits to the beta that don't exist and I'm making things up - but it seems like the latency on the pitch-shifter has been reduced.

    Cool - thanks for the tip. I'll give it a whirl.

    Tried to dump the edited .syx file several times with no success. transmitter indicated that things were going swimmingly but the display on the MFC never moved off the 'loading presets I' indicator. No change in the set up and the transfer never successfully happened. Surely there's an...

    After having updated the MFC firmware to the latest version I'm now trying to put the old button layout back in place (not sure why it was changed in the first place.) In the process of getting a current SysEx dump from the unit and got a pop-up prompt which needs to be corrected (mac osx)...

    18+ firmware & EV-1/MFC -101 Mk III issues that I could use a hand with

    Sweet, sweet fractal forum: Since the 18FW upgrade (I've advanced recently to FW19 beta 'cus I had'ta) I've lost controllable connection from my EV-1 pedal thru my MFC 101 Mark III to my presets. Simply put - she no longer controls anything when moved on presets that worked like a charm...

    Sweetwater TC Electronic G System

    Fair points on TC's g-force/g-system longevity. Maybe I'm just frustrated with the overall pace of innovation in the fx computer processing industry (fractal by and large notwithstanding). The radical improvements in consumer electronics over the past 15 (e.g. touch interface, exponential...

    Sweetwater TC Electronic G System

    I just sold one of these that I picked up on 2010 --> TC quit supporting it in ~2011. It's built on tech that was relevant in ~2007 making the unit an unsupported computer that is 7+ years old. They shouldn't be able to give these things away let alone make $1K a pop. They're still...

    Wish Another wish for the mfc

    Ability to show small tuner arrows on the screen at all times. I had a tc elec. g-force that had this feature and on a much smaller screen than the mfc. Very handy feature that saved having to enter a dedicated tuner mode to quickly check tune.

    Newbe needs help

    Should work on startup. Factory presets will be Switchable out of the box. If the mfc is not starting up or allowing you to cycle through factory presets on startup when connected via faslink then something could be wrong with the hardware or firmware of the unit(s).

    The elusive 'money for nothing' tone...

    So I was playing through the presets after getting the unit out of the box - came across [193] 'I'm Nationwide' and realized that it was already pretty close. Added a tone match and stereo enhance block and stopped. The full chain then is: T800 OD --> Deluxe tweed --> 1x12 deluxe tweed cab...
