    Possible to load a layout with preset?

    Basically, I need to tap dance a little less with my FC6; I'm hoping to be able to be in View 2 of a layout which has my Preset toggle up/down switches, but when I land on a particular preset using those foot switches, I'd like it to return to View 1 automatically; not for every one, mind you...

    Wish Looper Block Exempt from Scene Volume in Output Block

    I was perplexed yesterday when I recorded a loop in one scene, switched to another scene to solo over it, and the volume of the loop dropped significantly. I couldn't figure out why this was until I realized that I normalize my scene volumes in the Output block. Anyway, it would be fantastic to...

    Annoying problem; bug? Wah block content (NOT resolved)

    Why do some modelers have a 12AX7 tube and why doesn't the Axe?

    My first modeler was the Digitech BP8 for my bass about a hundred years ago. It had a 12AX7 tube in it. Since then, some products/pedals have at least 1 tube. I assume this is to add that tube "warmth," right? To decrease the digital-ness of digital gear. Curious why the Axe doesn't have one. Is...

    No "A/D Input Level" - Use 6dB pad instead?

    I was searching all over for the A/D Input level and it appears it isn't a part of the FM3. Are there plans for it to be added in the future? Do we just use the pad instead?

    I posted this in the FM3 Wish List as well, but it's equally desirable for the Axe III, I think. The gist is that I love the metronome function and I use it quite a lot - but I would love it if I didn't have to manually turn the volume up and down every time I used it, especially since those...

    Meters basically useless without peak dB readout

    I love the metronome function. I would love it if I didn't have to turn the volume up and down every time I used it. The "push" functions of knobs C & D aren't in use - why not use them to quick-mute/unmute the metronome for the particular Output? That'd be super convenient. Thanks!
