    Wish Ability to route spdif input to input 2

    If the hardware is setup for this it would be great to be able to have spdif input to input 2 i would like to be able to use the spdif in and out for outboard fx in my daw At the same time keeping my analog guitar path this way one could be recording guitar with one path on the grid, and have...

    Spdif input on axefx3?

    I’ve reread pg 70 of the manual. Still confused... What I’m trying to do is use input and output 1 as normal, then use spdif in/out to be able to use the axe for outboard fx for my daw. Ideally at the same time if I have two separate paths on the grid with their own ins and out blocks.

    Spdif input on axefx3?

    Yes, I was hoping to use input 2 but keep input 1 analog. My impression was input 1 was the on,y option. I’m not in front of my axe now but I’ll take another look.

    Spdif input on axefx3?

    How do you tell the axe to use one of the input blocks for spdif? I see in setup, IO tab, you can setup spdif for an output block but seems it’s not the same for input. What am I missing? thx!

    Mini LCD wish - bigger text or bold

    Right I agree.. but if they are too small to read using different button configurations would be too hard to remember so basically the functionality is useless at this point.

    Mini LCD wish - bigger text or bold

    Update... so the magnifier does work okay, I can read the lcds just fine with it. Main problem is I didn’t realize the thing is like 1” tall so it interferes with the buttons. So basically it’s a no go.

    Enhancer for FOH width?

    If you have a good sound man I’d stick with letting him do it unless you only want it for certain sounds. Also you would need to be running stereo output to do it right in the box. I believe most people put it near the end of the chain, but maybe before a reverb block if you use one
