    Axe-Fx II Firmware "Ares" 1.00 Public Beta

    There's already several Axe-Fx models to maintain. If anything I would drop some of the variant amp models or Axe-Fx Std/Ultra ported models and fill that space with say more effects preset options (e.g. overdrive, delay etc models of specific pedals). Those who don't like this can always stick...

    Axe-Fx II MK-I: Fan Size

    I used some rubber ropes meant for hanging a hard drive in a computer case so it doesn't transfer resonance to the case. I mounted the 60mm fan angled between the posts then wrapped the rubber ropes around and between the posts and fan and finally put the nuts on the bolts to keep it all in...

    Can the Axe-Fx II sustain?

    That's controlled feedback. Nothing to it other than installing a sustainer pickup or using speakers at a decent volume.

    Touch and Volume Sensitivity

    I haven't been able to tell any real difference between the tube amps I've played and the Axe-Fx 2 when it comes to responding to picking dynamics and guitar volume. Works as expected.

    how to adjust output of the headphone jack

    Why would you use the headphone out for that when the back panel has several line-outs and digital outputs that would work better? The headphone output is controlled by the Out 1 knob.

    What are you using for sustain?

    Same here, unless you are trying to get that Gary Moore live infinite sustain from feedback thing, any good guitar would have more than enough sustain.

    What's all the Hoopla about Scenes?

    I find scenes to be incredibly convenient for changing what effects are on, toggling the X/Y states of blocks etc. Rather than having to duplicate the same signal chain with small changes in each preset so you get your clean/od/lead or whatever typical combinations of settings you need, you can...

    Helix Control Pedal + Axe FX III

    The Helix Floor or LT can work for this as it outputs MIDI and has actually really good controls for determining what it sends but the Helix Control is more like the FC, a proprietary "dumb" box.

    Helix Control Pedal + Axe FX III

    Since there is no MIDI, to make the Helix Control work with the Axe-Fx 3 you would need to build a box that does the following: Has a controller like a small Arduino or other cheap little thing with a programmable firmware. Ports for each unit (XLR for FASLink, Ethernet for Helix Control)...

    Timing on availability of exact specs/photos of FC-6/12

    I don't think they have any real incentive to do that. Considering even the Sysex specs for Axe-Fx 2 are incomplete on the Wiki, I doubt Fractal has much interest in releasing a full spec for the 3. Having done something like this for the Axe-Fx 2, it was a fair bit of work to read and update...
  11. laxu

    Timing on availability of exact specs/photos of FC-6/12

    The Helix allows you to map MIDI CCs to output on switch presses so I think it would be possible to get at least block and channel on/off toggles there. See the Command Center section of the manual. Has Fractal outlined what the foot controllers can actually do?

    Raspberry, signs of life (MIDI)

    Better solution would be to use a MIDI controller with LED rings around the infinite rotary pots. I used to own a Yamaha DG80 combo that had motorized knobs that changed when presets changed and that was great but also the number one thing that eventually failed on those amps. Infinite rotaries...

    Timing on availability of exact specs/photos of FC-6/12

    I'm not aware that the FC actually does much more than a MIDI controller at least initially. I've been using a cheap FCB1010 with my Axe-Fx 2 for years and it can do all the things needed but just doesn't have any feedback on the device about the status of the Axe-Fx. Small price to pay for such...

    Good studio speakers for Axe + bass?

    Since you're in Finland, splurge on a set of Genelec M040s, about 1200€ for a pair. I've been really happy with mine and play bass through them too. The XLR + RCA inputs are also handy because I can hook up Axe-Fx into one and my audio interface into the other and they seem to coexist rather...

    Quantum -> Ares changelog?

    There's no sense for Fractal to throw away all the hard work they did for the older platforms and start over so Axe-Fx 2 was initially very similar in sound to the Standard/Ultra and at the moment the 3 is similar to 2. At the moment the Axe-Fx 3 is to me a port of Axe-Fx 2 software to a new DSP...

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 10.01 Firmware Release

    Interesting! So I'm guessing your IDE does not complain about uninitialized variables then? I would make so many mistakes if my IDEs didn't help me with small things like that, it's so easy to forget small things like that when you are in the flow programming away.

    Axe-Fx II XL vs HELIX

    I've only been able to try Axe-Fx 2 and Helix Native side by side and while the Axe-Fx sounds just a little bit better, the difference is not night and day and I would be happy with either. This was done using Axe-Fx 2 as the audio interface so the only real difference is the modeling and a bit...

    Emulating the Klon, uhh ... Soul Food

    I picked up a Keeley D&M Drive which is essentially Klon and OCD overdrives in one box. It would be nice to have these modeled in the Axe-Fx but until then I'll be using the pedal into Axe-Fx input as it seems to work great with every amp model I've tried. I should try and see if I can...

    Your best tips for getting a better sound through headphones?

    I tried the second reverb block yesterday. Using my G&L Legacy with a JTM45 model + 4x12 Greenback IR and setting the second reverb to simulate a small room I did get a pretty good sound. While of course not as fun as what I get from the studio monitors, it was still fun to play. I also added an...

    Overwhelmed by Cabs

    The issue is primarily in how the cabs are presented. These massive lists with the same cab with every mic and speaker known to man is not a good way to show them. It would be better to choose a cab (2x12 Zilla), then choose a variation (speakers, mic, position) for it. On the background this...

    Your best tips for getting a better sound through headphones?

    I actually have Beyer-Dynamic DT 990 Pros. Also have AKG K272 HDs and they sound pretty good for guitar, drastically different from the Beyer's though. Far field IRs sound pretty good but they are hard to find, the only ones I have are the ones built-in.

    Any FC release time info ?

    Can't be bothered to read this whole thread, but are there any block editing features planned for the FC? To me one of the coolest features of the Line6 Helix is that you can navigate and adjust a lot of things just using your feet. Being able to map a footswitch to a block and then edit its...

    Your best tips for getting a better sound through headphones?

    Thanks! I'll give it a try. This is only for practice purposes so I'd rather not involve a DAW and plugins but just use what is available in the Axe-Fx 2 itself.

    Your best tips for getting a better sound through headphones?

    So I'm pretty happy with how my Axe-Fx 2 sounds through Genelec studio monitors but when at times I have to use headphones I usually am left wanting. I understand that it will have compromises compared to using studio monitors etc. but I'm sure I can get it to sound better than it does now...

    Is this possible with the 3?

    The easiest way to do this would be to just add another output block for the IEMs, put an EQ block or two in front of it and use those. Rest of the chain would stay the same.

    A friend got the Axe III....

    I was in a very similar situation back then. I had a Diezel Einstein 1x12 combo and an Egnater Tourmaster 100 + 2x12 cab because neither could cover the same things. The Egnater did mid gain well, the Diezel did cleans and high gain better. Both had their own issues and compromises but they were...

    I have literally never had this issue so it might be specific to some USB controllers on your computer, USB power save settings or something like that.

    While I'm happy that progress is being made, when I had the Axe-Fx Standard I felt it sounded and responded good enough to ditch the tube amps I had at the time.

    A friend got the Axe III....

    I can't tell much more than that in clips the 3 sounds a bit better but obviously any differences in feel don't translate to clips so well.

    Presets up/down button is inconsistent

    Up/down buttons in everywhere else in the UI select previous (up) or next (down) item in the list. Presets does this in the opposite direction and it tends to throw me off where I go to the next preset instead of the previous one. Please correct this to work like the rest of the up/down buttons.

    Recording tube head with axe fx cab sims?

    I'd add to this that with a load box you would need an additional power amp if you want to use it with a guitar cab in a manner similar to an attenuator. The Fryette Power Station is probably the best unit for this at the moment as it's a load box + 50W 6L6 poweramp in one box so you could run a...

    Amp in the room simulation

    I would say the number one reason is that those people don't want to use the equivalent of a computer.

    Is the fan still in the ceiling on the 3?

On the Axe-Fx 2 the biggest issue with the...

    AXEFX III, X-LOAD LB-2, GUYTRON GT 100 ...CAN I??

    Seems to me that this is similar to the Fryette Power Station but built as a complete amp. Basically the 100W power amp is just going to amplify a signal taken back to line level so the power amp would not have to be even tube and is probably very neutral sounding. You should ask the...

    New Line 6 FRFR cab - Powercab

    The speaker modeling to me is the main draw. In fact I'm interested in buying it for that alone but the standard model is not upgradeable so you are stuck with the 6 speaker models they give you. There are already plenty of good FRFR units on the market and most modelers come with a good IR...

    Reverb in Amp Block ? - Any benefit soundwise?

    As explained above, the bias trem in the amp block is a type of tremolo that can't be replicated without it interacting with the amp sim. No such limitations for most reverbs. I suppose the amp block could use some sort of effects loop simulation that allowed putting other fx blocks between the...

    Port of Axe III firmware to Axe II ?

    I believe we could easily have just a handful of FAS branded "idealized" models and be happy with how it sounds. I've got a Yamaha THR100HD and it has a measly 4 different amp models (not counting the solid state option) and those cover pretty much all tones I could need but obviously need a bit...

    New Line 6 FRFR cab - Powercab

    To me the "expandable" cab options means that they might add more models of speakers to the 6 included over time.

    Amp in a Room vs Studio Recorded Tones

    In theory, an IR made with a neutral mic should sound like pressing your head to the micing position - which you would not do. The problem is that the amp in the room sound is always reliant on the room itself, where the speaker is positioned in it and where you as a listener are standing...

    So far I'm not entirely sold on the Axe Fx 3....

    There are quite a few popular drive pedals that are not represented in the Axe-Fx so I think there is still room to add new fx. For the other effects, I think the amount of parameters can make them daunting to figure out compared to a pedal with a far more limited feature set. That's where...

    So far I'm not entirely sold on the Axe Fx 3....

    To me for the 3, ease of use should be the biggest focus. We already know the Axe-Fx 2 sounds phenomenal and there probably isn't a unit that can match the 3 soundwise right now. I made a thread when the Axe-Fx 3 was revealed about why I was going to explore other avenues and not upgrade and...

    No more real cabs for me

    I think this would make a great video comparison, like that Larry Mitchell one.

    Axe FX 3 quality as an Interface?

    Does the Axe-Fx 3 have any better controls for routing and muting/soloing outs?

    I think the real improvements we need are not in how speaker sims sound but how they are managed.

It looks a bit like a mixing desk view into the recording space where...

    If you are recording via USB then you should set the USB/Digi out source from the I/O -> Audio screen to Output 2. That should fix your issue. I agree it's annoying that the unit is set up like this. I've just started using my audio interface with headphones and Axe going to it over SPDIF...

    Is improving external controller support anywhere on the list? 3rd party tools can map any Axe-Fx 2 parameter to external knob controllers but both the hardware UI and Axe-Edit limit it to very few controls and only 12 external controllers. In my experience even with the 2 there is no need for...

    future versions? (I.E. axe fx iii xl+)

    Exactly. To me the section that needs most work is the navigation as those arrow buttons are spaced really far apart to be used efficiently. Real knobs are always better than virtual ones too. I don't see the Axe-Fx 3 getting a revision unless a hardware vendor changes.

    After 9.04 Firmware everything sounds super bad

    Same for me but most of my patches are pretty simple. At worst I've had to tweak the settings a little bit and then had a sound that I enjoy.

    Anyone find that they use the same cab, regardless of amp?

    I usually use different IRs but gravitate towards ones that are made by OwnHammer. They always have a sound that fits my tastes the best. ML IRs are my second choice. Least favorite is probably the RedWirez stock cabs, those tend to sound fizzy to me.

    Is it me or is the Axe fx 3 aesthetically unpleasing?

    If the Axe-Fx 2 is like a 1990s rack multifx unit, the Axe-Fx 3 looks like an old ADAT box. I don't mind the 3U size at all, I'm sure it's justified with all the I/O but the front panel gets no design awards. Logos take absolutely massive amounts of space, there is room for the screen to be...

    Who's Planning To "Eventually" Move Up To The III?

    I'm going the complete opposite direction. After about 9 years of Axe-Fx devices I've finally realized I just don't need that much. I'm not a heavy effects user and as much as I enjoy the sounds I'm getting out of my Axe-Fx 2 MK I, it's still too much for me. I'll probably look into it again...

    Axe Fx intersction with IRs

    My understanding is that those params are heavily tied into how the amp responds with the speaker load.

    III on the Floor

    I could use a unit that is more limited than the Axe-Fx 3 but at the same time I don't want to use it on the floor. I would rather have something I can put on top of a cab for knob control and then have a separate footswitch on the floor. So I say give me a smaller rack unit or a desktop box.
  70. laxu

    Help me! Floor vs. Rack

    I hate crouching down to the floor to adjust things so rack for me. To be honest my ideal "AX9" would be something with a control unit you can put where you want and then you could just hook up one of the new FC foot controllers. Essentially a desktop unit.

    10 is still a pretty limited number. I can use 8 just for basic amp settings (two gains, master, level, bass, middle, treble, presence). You can cut that down by a few but it still means you only have a couple of params left for controlling some effect. I'd raise this to something like 20...

    FC12 will be compatible with Axe Fx II mk I?

    MIDI in todays world is kind of a shitty protocol. You run out of CCs in a jiffy with something as complex as an Axe-Fx and have to communicate the rest over MIDI SysEx messages, which most MIDI controllers don't understand or send out of the box. That's why the MFC-101 is Axe-Fx 2 specific as...
  78. laxu

    RAC12

    I would say yes, unless someone updates the firmware on that. The Axe 3 will have a new ID that the RAC12 won't recognize and then it's a question if Axe 3 sends data in the same SysEx format as the Axe-Fx 2.

    FracTool - ultimate multitool for FAS devices

    Tried this on my machine (1440p display) and it seems the UI does not scale at all. On a 4K display this would mean that all text is way small. Depending on what software is used to make the app you might need to just enable scaling to get this fixed.

    Help with Axe-Fx 2 SysEx messages

    So I'm building a software to communicate with the Axe-Fx 2 over SysEx but the Wiki is missing some function IDs. Could someone tell me how to do the following things? Get scene number. I know how to set it but not how to just read it. Does the Axe-Fx 2 even send this because if I change it...

    FracTool - ultimate multitool for FAS devices

    If you have a Windows machine running Windows 10 then you can just change the display scaling to say 125% or higher and see how the app scales. Typically the app either gets blurry or text starts to overflow UI elements.

    Axe-Fx into UA Apollo Twin=Mind Blown

    You either connect it to the Axe-Fx analog outputs to mic/line inputs on the Apollo or you need to buy a SPDIF coax to SPDIF optical converter box and connect Axe-Fx SPDIF out to converter box to Apollo optical in.

    My one issue about the axe ughh

    Other than there being no UI and (presumably) no SysEx message mapping, I don't think so. It's just a decision Fractal has made. Would be a good upgrade to make these editable from the software because the menus for those are pretty packed and can be confusing.

    Axe-Fx STILL at Heavy Discount. How Does this Not Indicate New Axe 3?

    It's never in a company's best interest to say that a new version is coming because that means people who were about to buy the current one will instead hold off.

    Axe-Fx STILL at Heavy Discount. How Does this Not Indicate New Axe 3?

    Absolutely, with units priced below those that are pretty great like the Amplifirebox or Yamaha THR100HD. Lots of competition which is great for us, the consumers. If Fractal wants to put out another high end box priced like the Axe-Fx 2 XL+ was they really need to deliver something much better...

    The Year Of The Axe FX 3. A Huge Year For Fractal Indeed!

    I would buy such a product. I am always happy with the tones I'm getting from my Axe but not with the lack of quick adjustments. I've been using the MidyAX2 software to use an Arturia Beatstep to give me some on-the-fly control and it's a great improvement.
