    from Friedman BE100 Deluxe to Axe FX III?

    Do it dude, get an Axe Fx and some good studio monitors. I wish I did. It would have saved me $50,000 that I spent on amps and cabs.

    Anyone want Improvements in Axe-Fx User Interface?

    I like how Fractal remain focused on what it sounds like not what it looks like. Making it look cooler would be wasted time they could of spent on somehow making it sound even better. They’re Fractal Audio after all.

    It's 2020, why can't we have a completely wireless set up?

    I could have never imagined the battery concept would be so difficult for some to grasp. But moving forward, a wireless foot controller in theory is possible. Really looking forward to seeing what the USB port will be for on the FC's. I have a wireless guitar system and soon to have wireless axe...

    It's 2020, why can't we have a completely wireless set up?

    That’s a crazy thing tho say. No offence intended but you trust your wireless guitar and IEM but not something that sends a single command to a device wirelessly? Or in the case of an expression pedal a packet off data much less complex than your guitars DI or IEM signal.

    I'm talking wireless axe edit, wireless fc-6/12 and a wireless headphone port (I understand the latter might not work) but I know the wireless axe edit is possible.

    I've been starving my Axe!

    87% ????? seems way to high, I can only manage about 6.6% with my hottest humbuckers. They are actives but that to me seems unusually high. How long is your signal path before it hits the font of the Axe?

    What go you think is wrong with my Axe-Fx 3?

    Reamping with GarageBand possible?

    Yeah I thought that may have been the case but thanks for trying. Might be time to upgrade to Logic.. It's a bit of a shame I couldn't re-assign the USB signal channel in the Axe because I can see and hear it getting the signals from my DAW on channels 1 and 2.

    Have you read the thread about that European wait ?Where Fractal mention they are expecting a container tomorrow and some of that stock is earmarked for G66 in Europe. I reckon ours would be in that same shipment. I reckon mid June we will see some thing. Fingers crossed.

    Is the assembly being done in China?

    I think it matters. People like to know these things. People like me who are only coming over to Fractal recently (I’m on the waitlist for a Axe 3) are concerned about it being made in China after only owning I high quality US/UK built amps. I’m looking forward to hearing more about the assembly...

    Setup

    You may also have to plug a cable into the amps input with nothing connected at the other end to get it to work. I had to do this to my VS100h to use it as a power amp. The fx level became my master volume then and work backwards. 10 the no sound and 0 was full noise.
