    Axe-Fx III 16.00 Beta 5 "Cygnus" Firmware - Public Beta #2

    LOL! My '75 Twin R with EVM12Ls was insane to lift in 1975 when I was a young man!

    Axe-Fx III 16.00 Beta 4 "Cygnus" Firmware - Public Beta

    Updated from FW 13.2 and wowwwwwww!!!!!! I will wait for official release before tackling my almost 100 presets though but worth the beta just to experience this! I hope Cygnus and the Drive get ported to my FM3 soon!

    I think the FM3 and Axe3 onboard interface is brilliant and easy! Personally, I couldn't get the nuance I love with just basic parameters on a GUI.

    FM3 Firmware Release Version 1.06

    First freeze up! Arrived with 1.06 installed, using an edited factory preset, not using a Friedman amp, haven't used Axe Edit or any USB interface yet. Happened while playing with the delay block settings. Am having a blast with the convenience of this little unit at home. Keeping the Axe3 for...

    FM3 Firmware Release Version 1.06

    My guess is that any block upgrade already implemented on the Ax3 needs the processing optimized to a point where it doesn't use more CPU than the current FM3 block/s. That means creative workarounds, epiphanies, and experimentation by the team before we see it on the FM3 which is already a...

    FM3 Firmware Release Version 1.05

    Some Drive pedals have a 3% increase in CPU on the AX3! On the FM3 that could come out to maybe 12% or more on a device that I and others have already maxed on many presets! I'm not complaining at all. I'm extremely happy to have a smaller less expensive device with Cliffs magic in it!

    FM3 Firmware Release Version 1.05

    The FM3 can only catch up to the AF3 as much as it's processing power allows(that's the main reason why it's cheaper and smaller). There will be trade offs with what can or should be ported over. A possible example is the new AF3 Drive Block that uses more processing power than the previous AF3...

    It's possible but I don't experience it with my AF3 thru the same studio monitor playing quiet.

    Great idea but I wasn't looking to prove it to others but rather get some advice which worked for me.

    Editing Sound VS Edited Sound

    You are right! A restart and my presets sound like the better version. Strange but works how I need it to work.

    Editing Sound VS Edited Sound

    Is it just me or does the FM3 sound/respond better when in edit mode(called up parameter in front panel edit). When I exit edit mode(in preset mode), the same preset sound isn't as good and seems to have a slight bit more pick latency. I am using FW 1.04!

    FM3 General Discussion Thread

    The Axe3= yes it can do that! FM3= you can do some of that with a few compromises! The price of the 3 will probably go up after the FM3 comes out and they will likely develop some must have effects/abilities only on the Axe3 after the FM3 sales slow.

    FM3 Alternates - Serious Question

    I'm trying a friends Hotone Ampero for use at home(Axe3 for gigging) and it is very musical sounding and cheap($375 new/$300 used). If you don't need it's reverb(not up to others level), it could be a cheap alternative.

    Loud intermittent noise...

    My Axe3 is similar with cheaper/problematic guitar cables that seem to work ok in my cheaper devices. I pull out a more professional guitar cable (that's fairly new) and problem solved. I would guess that the secret sauce II preamp is very sensitive compared to what other brands use.

    Mini LCD wish - bigger text or bold
