    Drivers issue?

    My Axe-Fx II XL just stopped working with my PC (Windows 10). I just couldn't get it working again despite several reboots etc. So I tried re-installing the drivers, but no luck. I get an error message (below) during the install. Any ideas what might be causing this?

    Output 2 level question

    Hi all, I use output 1 to FOH and Output 2 to my amp and cab. The Output 2 block is before the cab block in my presets. Is it normal to need to crank the level of output 2 all the way up, just to get the level meter to 0db? I have both output 1 & 2 set to +4db on the global settings. This...

    Wish: Axe-Edit custom amp block reset

    I know it's probably been requested before. I'd like axe Edit to have an option to custom re-set the amp block after firmware updates etc. Ideally there'd be a customisable list of parameter settings to retain (similar to that little non-Fractal bit of software that also does this). Also...

    Wish: 'utility' button in Axe-Edit

    I'd like there to be a button in Axe-Edit that displays the utility menu on the front panel of the Axe-Fx. This is so I can view the VU meters without having to go over to the front panel and press Utility every single time. Do you think that would be something that could be implemented?

    MFC Looper control mode / Tuner issue

    Hi, I just upgraded from an MFC MkI to a MkIII. Copied all my settings over, and all is well, except... When I go into Looper control mode, IA17 switches on the Tuner, even though I moved the tuner IA switch over to IA16. Should this happen, and is there a way to stop it? Many thanks,

    Wish Enhancer block Modifier on/off facility

    Hi, I know the Enhancer block doesn't have bypass options for obvious reasons (It has to be in series), but this means there is no facility to attach a modifier to it in order to bypass or engage the block from an external switch, and have it poll the switch for it's state regardless of preset...

    TUNER External IA

    Hi all, Can anyone tell me is it possible to set an External switch to engage the Tuner, and still have the Tuner display appear on the MFC's screen? I'm sure this has been covered before, but searches failed to find anything, so apologies if it has....

    Forum access

    I'm having trouble getting access to the forum from any device in my home. (I'm using my work stuff to get access here). I can access any other website from my PC's, tablet's, phones etc at home, but not the fractal forum. I'm in the UK and my router is Virgin Media. I spoke to Virgin about it...

    External Switch settings

    Hi, I've attached a single external switch with a TRS Jack to the MFC, and programmed it to 'Scene Incr.' Which will toggle up through scenes. This works well. However, on occasion say when powering up the unit, the Axe-Fx will poll the switch and change scenes automatically. Not a major issue...

    Tap Tempo / Tuner issue

    Using the latest firmware (V3.05 on the MFC Mk 1 and 15.02 on the AFXII Mk1) I have IA16 set for Tap Tempo, and if held down, to display the tuner. Recently (I'm not sure when) the Tap tempo doesn't blink even though it still does work, and the Tuner is engaged, the IA light comes on, but the...

    Axe-Edit / MFC bypass states

    Hi, In the latest AE release notes it says: "Please note that there is currently no messaging mechanism between the Axe-*‐Fx and Axe-*Edit when a block's bypass state is changed from the MFC" This is the case on nearly all my presets, but I do have a couple in which it does work, on all...

    V11.03 Preset name vanishing?

    Hi, Anybody else have a problem where the preset name vanishes? This happens on my preset 001. The name still partially appears on the MFC screen. I re-save and its OK again, but then it re-occurs. No other presets are affected, only the first one. The preset otherwise works OK so I was...

    V11b preset clipping

    I know the issue of clipping is a well trodden path, and is covered in many threads. Still, I thought I'd mention this. After updating to V11b (Which I am very happy with by the way!) my loudest presets, which I use for solo's etc, are now clipping quite a bit from output 1. They previously were...

    Problem with v2.17 toggling between scenes

    I uploaded V2.17 last night, but found that the IA switch I had set up to toggle between Scenes 1 & 2 no longer worked. Checked all my settings again and all seemed correct. So I rolled back to 2.16 again and it all works as it should. Is this an issue with 2.17? I'd be interested to know if...

    I was messing around with some sample IR's and I don't know what I did but I have accidentally overwritten my own Cab IR (the one I use on ALL my presets) !!!!! So I figure, well no problem, I'll just restore my Cab IR from the last backup I did. I found the file on my PC, and using the bot I...

    A Scenes control question

    Having only one spare IA available to me on my MFC, I figured I'd set it to open Scene 2, so it would offer me the solution to open up a few more options in any given preset. However I've found that once I hit the Scene 2 IA, there's no way to quickly get back to scene 1. I mistakenly thought...

    Does Axe-Edit follow CC changes with Axe II and TotalSync?

    Quick question, and this had probably been covered elsewhere, apologies if it has, but my searches failed to find the answer. When I used my Ultra with Axe-Edit, and moved an expression pedal (via MFC), the corresponding paramater on Axe-Edit moved as well (i.e. the wah 'control' or the...

    What happened to BAK ?? PLEASE tell me it hasn't gone

    Since updating, my favourite function (Backtrack) seems to not work properly anymore. If I click a preset, instead of going back to the previous preset, it says ALT, then brings up preset no.1 from bank 1. I assume this is some sort of setting issue, but I've been through the menus, and can't...

    Trouble / Problem with Editing presets (Standard), possible software issue?

    Hi, I dont know if anyone can shed any light on this one, but here goes: It's an Axe-Fx standard belonging to a friend, V.11 working fine, except when you access LAYOUT, then the cursor scrolls across to the far-right and all the effects blocks go blank (turn into shunts). The sound mutes...

    Which Amp sim for legato?

    Global effects bypass IA

    Hi, If I would like to set a single IA switch/CC to act as a bypass for a range of effects (such as delays, reverbs etc) in any given preset, I figure there are a couple of ways to achieve this. Anyone have any suggestions on the best/easiest way to do it? Thanks,

    Additional Tuner mute options

    I'd like to be able to set the tuner mute to mute output 1, but not output 2. Seems like a strange request, but I use output 2 on the Axe-Fx to go to a seperate rack tuner. I sometimes like use that in addition to the MFC's display, but when I hit the tuner button on the MFC101 it defeats both...

    Bounce Back

    The ability (or option) to bounce back to previous preset by pressing the same preset button twice. This would then act as a toggle between those 2 presets. This should be able to occur regardless of which bank the first preset was in. Here is the scenario: So you are in BANK 1 and click...

    Editor 'Save' button / bad checksum

    I have the latest version of the editor working with my Standard.

It tries, then...

    8.09 Standard auto re-boot

    This is worrying. Since updating my Standard to 8.09, every once in a while my unit re-boots itself during patch changes. Previously this only happened when using the value wheel whilst messing about at home, so I thought, well thats not such a big deal, as I change patches during live shows...
