    I wouldn't say the same has been true in my experience. I will admit I've been spoiled by some otherworldly FRFR systems though. My RCF NX speakers also hold their own against (and often exceed) tube amps though.

    Maintaining stereo separation?

    You could also use a scene controller or change the channel on a single reverb block so its output is balanced Left, Right, or Center as needed, or use output block channels -- this in addition to muting one of your amp blocks. @bdrepko that's generally how it works but the pans don't...

    Popping when switch from Recto to my cabless 80's clean. Why/help?

    Well, without even listening, I can advise against running two amp blocks in series. For an example of how to use two amp blocks to utilize more than four amp models in one preset, study factory preset 23, Friedman BE-100.

    Scene Controllers won`t change in AXE-EDIT III when changing preset with FC

    Thing about those is they distort, so it's more of a combination drive pedal/compressor. I know what you're referring to but I never heard it called "suck and swell" before. "Cha—hong", right?

    Gapless scene switching?

    It depends on the music and the role of the guitarist in the band. Nothing against those who want perfection, but a lot of pros I support are still switching presets instead of scenes -- in the context of a band mix or with basic spillover enabled. They might hit the change on a downbeat, or...

    Anyone Else Experience Sluggish FC-12 For High CPU Presets on Axe FX3 Mk II?

    Do not use a Humbuster cable when connecting the 1/4 outs to a balanced 1/4 input.
