    FC-12 to send MIDI Note values

    I would love this functionality as well. I trigger samples during performance with an MC6. It's an extra pedal and cost, but it does work. I personally could not go back to a generic midi controller for the Axe after using the FC6, nothing else will be as elegant.

    What laptop to buy

    I have an Asus transformer book. About as low specs as you can get for win machine. USB was never an issue. Was using an old Dell running vista. No USB issues. Don’t get me wrong I love Mac and use them as my main desktop but win machines can be had for much cheaper than used macs.

    Own an MC6 MkII. Do I need an FC-6 and why?

    I use both. FC-6 as my main board. MC6 as a trigger for samples, and start / stop for sequencer. If you had purchased the FC-6 you would wonder how you managed without it. But in your situation probably a lot of money just for the luxury of the unit.

    Axe-Fx III phasing issues?

    Have you tried any presets that were not converted? I had some issues as well when I converted. Are headphones plugged direct into the Axe? Have you tried creating a preset from scratch? Amp > Cab > Output?
  39. slinky005

    Axe-Fx III phasing issues?

    My guess is that if you listen with headphones the issue will not be there. Something external un-related to the Axe directly.

    What controller are you using? I used the MC 6 to change scenes using CC with no issues, so it does work.
  53. slinky005

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the questions

    Depends on your budget and how much functionality you need from a controller pedal. Low end of the budget: Morningstar MC 6 High end of the budget: Liquid Foot Pro If you can wait the Fractal FC6 and FC12 are obviously the ideal choice for the Axe Fx III Google is your friend.

    Preset Banks selected by number

    I believe what you're trying to accomplish would require many layouts. Layout A - 12 presets Layout B - 12 presets, etc. So if you need switches to select specific presets it seems you're limited to the number of layouts you can afford to re-program for this purpose.

    Layouts of Banks won't allow a "none" for preset engage

    Tried it here, it works. Great work Laresee. This right here is a great example of how flexible the FC is. It's a very specific setup most people will not need / use and actually very simple to setup.
  57. slinky005

    Layouts of Banks won't allow a "none" for preset engage

    If I understand correctly I think the unit is really designed to function where you select your bank on the same layout as the preset selections. The whole idea of jumping to different layouts to select banks and then jump back to your preset layout is not functional. Totally agree with using...
  58. slinky005

    Layouts of Banks won't allow a "none" for preset engage

    Probably not fully understanding your description. When I bank up or down I can see all the presets in that bank but I need to select a preset for it to load. Is this not the case for you?
  59. slinky005

    I can admit when I'm wrong. (Virtual Capo content)

    Using the VC instead of a capo for one of our tunes (half a step up). Great because tuning is always a bit wonky when I use a real capo. Works great.

    Does anyone use this layout? Not a complaint, just curious. Obviously I can re-program this layout to do anything. I don't get its application or purpose.
  63. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    Got it to work. Usually a pretty technical guy but this one was boggling my head. The concept needed to be clarified as you said. In my head I kept thinking I had to turn off Layout link somewhere. Many thx to you guys.
  64. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    Still not happening for me. If anyone can chime in and let me know how to do this?
  65. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    Ok so I misunderstood your original instruction. I was looking for a way to assign the layout link globally and then override on a per preset basis. Now I understand that you're saying I would need to go into each preset and assign or not assign the layout link on a preset by preset basis. Thx.
  66. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    Global switch = Preset Preset switch is assigned to layout link (go to layout 2 scenes) On the per preset page, where do I go to configure a per-preset switch without layout link set?
  67. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    Layout link cannot be overridden independently You can override it but.... I don't understand.
  68. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    You can't override it per preset.

  70. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    No complaints here. There's always another way to things in the Fractal world. I will just override unused scenes for presets to solve my issue. In other words for the odd preset that I need to have quick access to another preset in the scenes layout. May sound convoluted but pretty easy fix for me.
  71. slinky005

    Question: Can you do this?

    Been playing around with this on my FC-6. It seems to me that you can't override this function on a per preset basis because it's a global function. I would be happy to be wrong but I did the following: All songs on a different preset. Preset layout setup is 6 preset switches and two bank...

    Factory cabs are useless??? That's a first. Why do you need 8 cabs to get a good sound? The Axe sounds great out of the box and while the IR is a huge ingredient in getting a sound, there are so many things you can do to hone your sound. You are over complicating things for no reason.
