    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.05

    If anyone can actually create (and share!) a similar sound that's playing during the first seconds of this video that would be really great: And if you don't want to share for free, go ahead and drop me a PM.

    Is this new for the III? Because with Axe-Fx II I had to match them otherwise there would be cracks and pops.

    Why 512 Presets?

    Would be nice if you could define a preset folder path on a hard drive, and when plugged in with USB, Axe-Fx III would map banks E, F, G, ..., Z to that folder and use it as a memory extension. USB has enough bandwidth that loading a preset from hard drive would take fraction of a second, the...

    Extremely Odd USB Audio Issue

    I'm gonna go for an Apollo 8 with Thunderbolt 3 expansion card to avoid the USB issues. I just so wish AXE IIII would've had TB3 so I wouldn't have to spend an additional $3k.

    Overheat reboots

    Not really a suggestion, but wondering, if creating another set of presets, a "low-cpu" versions of main presets, would help the issue. For some it might not be an option, but depending on the songs, in extreme situations live you could get away with a quite simple tones.

    How loud should the fan be?

    Is the fan speed always constant? I'm going to run my III as a sound card for my PC so it will be on while it's mostly quiet and I'm sitting 2 feet away from it. If the fan would go to a very low RPM mode when the CPU usage is low that would be great, I'd just use an empty preset when I'm not...

    Implemented Metronome

    And if you could adjust the tempo (and volume) using an expression pedal that would be great. And also load the tick sample(s) as wav files (they could be loaded into Axe as cab IRs so no big changes needed for managing the files).

    [Windows] USB overflow issue every time stream starts

    Not me, because I don't have the III yet (Europe...) but I hope FAS will fix it as I plan to use the III as a generic soundcard for my Windows PC as well.

    Axe-Fx III Wish List

    Is it quieter than the AxeFx 2 ? Does it contain a fan?

    Would be cool if the fans would turn off when the CPU% is small f.ex when not actually playing but running an empty preset and acting only as a soundcard. Even if the fans would be quiet they would still collect dust inside the unit.

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.00 Firmware Release

    Hi-gain presets (from Marshall hard rock tones to Engl metal tones) sound better with Q6 default advanced settings than Q7 to my ears. I did the copy-X-to-Y-and-reselect-X routine and every time the Y with Q6 settings was better. Haven't compared mid-gain or cleans yet. Anyone else think so too?

    Cliffs of Dover Patch/static question?

    I have the same problem. Shutting down my computer seems to help a bit, or just turning away from it while playing. With the house filled with electric equipment the guitar is picking up a lot of noise. Makes recording anything of quality basically impossible.

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.00 Firmware Release

    Yngwie Malmsteen - Arpeggios from Hell cover

    New AxeFx II Video Clip..Gainier Mark Day

    Yea sounded kinda plastic for example the sound when pic hits the strings (not the note itself) is the same in every digital processor when recording direct. Going through power amp and speakers should mush those artifacts away though. Great playing and nice effects!

    Why do Europeans have to pay $3,300

    Maybe... if they send them one by one via regular mail to the reseller which I doubt pretty much. But yea, didn't know the US list price was net on top of which you need to add VAT yourself.

    Why do Europeans have to pay $3,300

    I don't have the exact number right now, but it's around 3% or 4% which makes it less than $100. If you're referring to VAT, it depends on the country but is maybe ~20% on average. There's still $500+ per unit out there that resellers could compete with.

    Why do Europeans have to pay $3,300

    If there were two (or more) resellers in the same area, the price would automatically adjust to correct level and increase sales numbers. Probably some of the resellers have managed to get Fractal to sign exclusive reseller agreements though.

    Why do Europeans have to pay $3,300

    Question is in the title... maybe some other resellers wouldn't take such a ridic vig?
