    Almost 2 months with no FW update...

    I like the idea, but measuring all the existing PA would be an impossible task. There is much more different possibilities than with guitar amps. Maybe the Axe-Fx could send pink noise, compare what came out and back in, and do the job like a spectrum analyze/equalizer.
