    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 13.00 Public Beta

    I've reviewed a bunch of Klon threads on here....Still, it would be nice to have one in the group. We have pretty much everything else under the sun here.

    I think it is important to point out that this virus is no worse that the flu.
