    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 16.00 "Cygnus"

    I've tried almost every major firmware update since axefx2_xlplus_Quantum_5p02.syx and I must say 16.00 "Cygnus" are the best improvement (yet?). There hade been said it was not possible to make the modeling better many times before but I always felt it lacked something. Recording has always...

    Vendor Producer Impulse Responses from major metal albums [Bogren Digital] - FREE UPDATE!

    I really like the idea of ready mixes instead of thousand different IRs. I have been using the ML mixes for most of my patches but I found some really nice one in this pack. I just miss the documentation of the IR's because it's hard to know by the naming =)

    USB disconnecting

    Try to disable all other Playback and recording devices under Sound settings. That's have decreased my UBS disconnections in Windows 10. The quality of the USB cable has nothing to do with the disconnections to do, of course it may not be broken.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 9.01

    Wow, the Gain Enhancer is really awesome. I rarely use advanced parameters, Dyn Depth with my matrix and input boost at taste just to not use the Drive block. GE is a real gamechanger with FRFR at bedroom levels and recording situations. Next generation guitarists won't have to suffer of Tinnitus.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.02

    Thanks! I just saw Cliffs reply and now I know that's normal. I didn't noticed the sound on the other amps. I've redone my VH4 patches which sounds great again, much higher master on the VH and a different cab IR.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.02

    Noise when I turn the knob, just the bass the other one is fine. The reason I'm asking is I can't get it to sound as good as before and it might be broken

    Will the Axe FX 2 XL+ still receive updates?

    I think they will release a few updates for II, because of the ax8 shared engine The updates will not be so frequent because all development will focus on the new platform. When ax8 with updated with similiar hardware as III then the development will stop.

    In my case it is laptops which use the Nvidia optimus tech (http://www.nvidia.com/object/optimus_technology.html ) I had to bind the Axe-Edit.exe to use the Integrated (CPU). I'm pretty sure it has to do with Axe-Edit cross-platform GUI.
