    Where to download MFC-Edit

    Using Windows 10 with MFC-101 3.09, followed instructions for Axe-Fx II as MIDI interface, and "Receive Dump from MFC-101" does not produce a file that I can open. Dumped with Fractal Bot instead 🤷‍♂️

    Harmony question

    My goal was to apply this sound to a generalized harmony for practicing and a 25% mix of Mixolydian (+3 +5) did the trick. I'm still curious about how to apply a lower harmony, though. I'd read that +3 becomes -6; but couldn't find anything on inverting +5, and -10 sounded awful.

    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 2.00 Firmware Release

    I'd really like to use more than two drive blocks on the Two. It's my problem if I overload the CPU. I'm not too cheap to buy the Three, I just don't have the time to build a new rig.

    V7 distortion in bass frequencies

    This recording was done with V7 firmware and the low notes at 0:34 have an automatic "blooming" distortion in the bass frequencies of the lead guitar track: Some time after, I tried feeding the recorded dry signal through V11 firmware and the effect was not reproducible.

    Will fractal consider using nutube technology in the future?

    I don't think Fractal will do anything with this unless it becomes responsible for a new, famous and great sounding amp. In which case, Fractal would probably only model it with 100% software.

    In my opinion, if the Axe-Fx III were to have no screen or controls (and subsequently be a 1U unit), I'd be satisfied as I only use Axe-Edit. An optional control unit could be sold separately. t'd probably bring down the price of the Axe3 too.

  65. prometh

    How do I tone match pickups?

    It won't sound anywhere near as good because the pickup's physical position relative to both the strings and your picking is more important than its EQ.
  66. prometh

    How do I tone match pickups?

    If the guitar is the same and only the pickups are different, remember that when you want to switch from bridge to neck pickup, you'll have to switch presets as well. This is something that has mostly turned me off from the idea for the time being.
