    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 6.00 Public Beta

    So, when I make a change to a permitter, does it stay as I set it, or do I have to save it?

    Yeah, it was a major downer for me as well, but I didn’t have a tour to work like you. I hope you have backup! No issues after repair for me . (Knock on wood) I still think it’s a great unit. Get it out tomorrow if you can, maybe they will put a rush on it for you. Good luck.

    FM3 hot questions (and, hopefully, answers)

    I need one these this Wednesday, can you overnight it? As for management, will it have its own FM3 manage, or will it be a button select off the regular Axe Edit for the FX3? Will we have to reload all the cab IR’s etcetera, or can we barrow from ones we already have stored from the the FX3?

    The Axe-Fx 3 works only at 48Khz

    I’m guessing this would be a hardware issue and not easily retrofitted. Would it be something Fractal would be willing to do after market? It’s not a big deal for me, but obviously a strong enough demand for it.

    Spring-loaded jacks

    I have three cables with the spring plug. Two I use on pedals and Axe, they “spring” lose if jostled or pulled. These two cables only have the spring plug at one end. I have a wireless system that has a cable coming down from the shoulder strap, it plugs in my guitar with a spring plug it...

    Spring-loaded jacks

    Yeah, I would think it was the jack as well, but when it happens on pedals, and even the Axe 3 ( have to keep reaching over and pushing it back in an 1/8 of an inch, just the weight of the cable is enough to loosen it) I tend to think it’s the plug. And not just one cable, but all of them.

    Hold function as a boost?

    I set up the preset with a filter option and saved it in the bypass mode. I then went the axe and set up a hold function with effect/filter option.

    Ok, was able to set up the filter on a hold switch. Nice option to have for sure. I have decided that the dB option is kind of relative.

    Hold function as a boost?

    Interesting, maybe I’ll try it, but still would rather not stand on a switch for solos over a few seconds long. Most of mine would be at least a 4-8 bar break.

    Hold function as a boost?

    Mmm yeah, maybe. It’s going to have to be per preset I think, but from my live experience +/- 10db is just enough to be heard of be squashed. Especially with the dB settings on the FX, I can ramp up or down and hardly notice much difference. But yeah, it will depend on the preset. I use a dB...

    EV-2 connection to Axe-Fx III

    The Owner's Manual contains tutorials about connecting, calibrating and configuring a pedal, either connected directly to the device, or via another controller.
  86. Intheband

    EV-2 connection to Axe-Fx III

    Yes, option 2 should work. The Ev does not have a port to receive a guitar, so, you run your trs from pedal to 1 to Axe 3. Plug into Axe three as normal. Calibrate pedal.

    EV-2 connection to Axe-Fx III

    Ok, sorry. No Y cable. That’s how mine works on another pedalboard. Wiki says, “ 3 jacks at the front: In, Out and Expression. In and Out are for volume. Requires TRS-to-TRS cable.”
