    Stack feature with Reverb question

    I think i saw a thread with very similar questions recently, and I believe Cliff indicated it’s to do with the modulation.

    Not a Bug Low Cut not in Hz

    FractalAudio said... “It impedance scales the capacitors in the input network.”... that sounds “hardware ish”. How would the FM3 catch up if it is hardware related? or are these virtual capacitors (DSP)?

    Not a Bug Low Cut not in Hz

    that’s why I (indirectly) asked... Comparing between AFX3 and FM3. FW14.00 and FW1.06 Is the implementation different but achieving the same? Therefore if the drive block in the AFX3 shows 20Hz for low cut and the FM3 shows 6.15, are they equivalent? I’m trying to copy / migrate presets

    Midi Routing Question

    the previous post should allow the rjm to send messages to the other connected devices. It doesn’t obviously address the issue of enabling the AxeFX to do that, because the thru won’t send from the AxeFX. You “could” do something “a bit naughty“, if the rjm can forward any received midi...

    Midi Routing Question

    Do you need messages back from the amp selector? If not, the connect it to the thru of the AxeFX and programme the GT22 to send the appropriate messages on scene change (realise that this might not work if the GT22 doesn’t have settings per preset). [the GT22 connected to midi in and out on AxeFX]
  14. simonp54

    Midi Routing Question

    make the AxeFx the master of the amp switching midi messages and make the AxeFX Slave to the GT22. possibly needing another device like a midi splitter the Midi Out on the AxeFX is correct in only sending out stuff it generates. The Thru however will send out stuff it received which is also a...

    Hold function via external switch... I'm missing some step.

    Noise gate at input vs sidechain to input

    Just out of interest because i haven’t checked in a while... has the gate acquired an inverse side chain detect yet? I have a method for doing it, but wondered if the block got an upgrade and i missed it. (I use this inverse gate to control my guitar input whilst playing a piano and vs versa)

    Storing FC-6 in a rack?

    FC layout question

    Intermittent non operation of stand in switch

    Simonp54. ;) I’m actually using the switch “off stage” with my hand to start an intro track via CS MIDI. My preset is a ”mute” preset so probably quite low CPU. A long cable tho....? And a quick “HOLD” timeout.
