    I still have my fix of ignoring MIDI messages for a second following a PC change and it behaves OK with and without Axe-Edit running. Thanks for your interest.

    Bug? The problem described appears to violate Foot Switch Functions as per para 3 on page 14.

    The computer sends midi via USB connected to the AxeFX III Channel 1 for PC changes. I have connected the AxeFX III via its MIDI Out through a MIO USB midi interface to the computer via another USB post on the computer through Channel 3. I can trace all MIDI messages and examine the full MIDI...

    Bug? The problem described appears to violate Foot Switch Functions as per para 3 on page 14.

    Yes but on a different channels. I use Channel 1 to send to the AXEFX, receive channel 3 from the AXEFX and Channel 2 to another piece of software. The messages the software is receiving are definitely the Control Switch values from the AXEFX being sent without a button being pressed on the FC6.

    Bug? The problem described appears to violate Foot Switch Functions as per para 3 on page 14.

    Thanks GlennO. The issue appears to be that a PC change (preset) triggers all FC specific button PC/CC messages to be sent. ie all my Control Switch buttons as per screen shots above are sent not only when I press a FC button but on preset change. Shouldn't button specific messages only be...

    New 'Single-Coil' version of my 'Acoustic Simulator' Preset.

Character is set "Peaking" at 3000, 0.707 and -5. The...

    Bug? Q2.01 Public Beta 1 - AMP block not saving changes/ auto reset - Resolved in Beta 2
