    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 2.00 Firmware Release

    From a serious tweeker of 45 years. e.g. Toneaholic's Anonymous For me, with the onset of Ares, The AxeFx reached the level of plug and play. Thank You Cliff P.S. I'm 67yrs Rockin' and still jamming

    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 2.00 Firmware Release

    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 1.00 Firmware Release

    . . . well, once a tweaker, always a tweaker. (Im working on that), but for the most part, I find that I can control quite a range of gain or intensity with the output volume on the guitar along with the tone controls.

    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 1.00 Firmware Release

    Ares upgrade, for me, instant gratification. 1) clean and clear touch sensitive dynamics 2) seemingly broader dynamic range 3) "stringyer" sound. More string nuance heard. More complex tone. More guitar identity heard. 4) easier to dial in tone, more playing, less tweeking THX

    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 1.00 Firmware Release

    . . . Definitely, Ares is a considerable improvement, just when I'm thinking, it can't get much better. And they didn't have to do it. If only more companies had this ethic.

    Axe-Fx II Firmware "Ares" 1.00 Public Beta

    Jammed on 10.01 for a couple hours, dug the heck out of preset built out of 025, Friedman amp. Loaded Ares 1.0 beta, same preset and yes, crazy tone filled, dynamic touch sensitive inspiration, instantly renewed my plans of obtaining a III. Thanks again Cliff and all that made it possible.

    Axe-Fx III Wish List

    Wish List for RTA block, 1) external mic feed for remote reference mic 2) connected matched graphic eq to compensate for room efficiencies or deficiencies in freq responce 3) appropriate noise source for calibration

    Fixed 48k Sample Rate Impedes Recording Studio Integrations

    Behringer ultramatch pro src2496 sample rate converter. around 2 or 3 hundred $
  22. B

    So What's New on the III? ...(Axe-Fx II vs III)

    It would be cool if you could inject a noise source into the RTA and the unit could sample a few room points with an external mic. Automatic global EQ for room flatness.

    I was a beta tester for the PCM80. It has only a few algorithms, but they are super comprehensive. My suggestion is digitally connect the PCM80 to the spdif outs and run it in parallel with the AxeFx into a basic line mixer or second input of a Atomic Clr if u have them. Makes me wish I still...

    Axe FW's longevity?

    Heck, I was coppin' great tones with my old Ultra until about 4mo's ago, before I sold it. While still owning an AxeFxll.. The way I look at it is, getting new firmware (AxeFxll) is like being a painter(artist) and obtaining a broader pallet of colors. Don't always need all of them, but your...

    Anyone wish for a better looper?

    It has been a while since I've done this but, possible to seemingly double looper/dly time, when playing against midi drums, by sending midi clk divided by 2 to looper or double midi clk sent to midi drums and then change tempo to 1/2 its rate. Time is relative.

    "Hands-free" parameter editing?

    That would be very cool. There are many CC type work arounds if your assign CC' s ahead of time. Some paramaters may requier Syx commands. None as easily implemented as would using the "big wheel" to conntroller idea. If possible .

    AES input points inside the Axe?

    using digital ports for an efx loop definitely would be a cool upgrade
  36. B

    AES input points inside the Axe?

    AES input goes to AxeFx input, AES output comes from the output. The USB can be assigned. If you do what you said with AES in's and out's, it will result in feedback, I presume.

    I'm not familiar with the FS-6, maybe the 3cond. tip/ ring/ sleeve interconnect/ plug from the pedal needs to be reconfigured. The wiring is available from Morningstar website. Also the pedal input on the MC6 has to be switched to pedal instead of switch. Hopefully this has helped.
