    Good.. now can we begin to wait for a possible "AX9"?

    FAS moved my thread here from the Axe3 forum.. haha.. OK.. but what is "lounge"? is it where you put stuff you don't like? You could at least move it to "wish list" if you care for what people think about your strategies..

    Good.. now can we begin to wait for a possible "AX9"?

    (Oh wait.. is there an FX9 coming first?) Although I was a proud owner of an XL in my studio, I only took it out on stage for 3/4 times, because of the inconveniences of having it in a rack case (extra weight), protecting my investment with a power conditioner (extra weight), controller and...

    Just a short answer before i start reading what's written below your original post: It took more than six months before I started to "like" the sound of my axe-fx.

    Scene change with MIDI pedal... Please help

    Yes.. now I'm taking the hard way and assigning a PC# to each scene of each preset (with axe-fx's midi mapping) It's taking time but it will work as intended. Plus, I won't have to use the front knob this way. Thanks to @FractalAudio for at least making it possible to do stuff with...

    Scene change with MIDI pedal... Please help

    I'm not sure I understand.. What I understand is, that with mapping, i can tell the axefx that when I send PC#3, to go to let's say Preset 5 + Scene 3, instead of going to Preset 3 which it would do without mapping... right? so CC is not involved here.. It's just a case of how axefx responds...

    @FractalAudio, can this issue be handled in firmware? I mean it should be an easy modification to enable MIDI mapping such as: map from preset: 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7 map to preset: ANY map to scene: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 (1 for 0, 2 for 1.. etc.) "ANY" is not the right term, i know.. it should be...
