    Is a tablet touchscreen a good editor without kb/mouse?

    I had a Surface a few years ago and tried Axe-Edit with it. Didn't like the Surface at all. Horrible for editing. Got rid of the Surface.

    2 guitarist 1 axe 3 , 2 FC 6

    The cool thing with scenes and an FC is that either guitarist, the one closest to the controller, can change the scene at the right time. Even more powerful with 2 FC's. Setup your preset with scene 1 (verse/rhythm), scene 2 (solo), scene 3 (chorus). Each guitar can have a fully independent...

    2 guitarist 1 axe 3 , 2 FC 6

    Depends on how much flexibility you want. It can do more in this config than anything else out there. Still, someone will come along and whine it doesn't do everything. You can setup a preset and assign all 1's to one FC for easy on/off of effects, all 2's to the other FC. You basically...

    What Thickness for HDPE pedalboard

    The width with three pedals seems like it would bend some at 1/2". I would go 3/4. Much more stable, at the very least 5/8. I have a 2x4x3/4 sheet of HDPE and I know it would be stable.

    How many expression pedals/switches with FM3 + FC6?

    The FC6 only has 4 pedal inputs and 2 switch inputs that use a stereo connector for 4 switches in total. Yes, you can use them all. You can use the pedal inputs as on/off switches. You still probably need to send it a CC message but you can set the values so that it's either on or off.

    Pre-purchase question (AXE III)

    My thoughts are if you had an Axe II and followed along you know their track record of releasing hardware and firmware updates. Stop listening to most people and use your head to the make the best decision for you.

    Dual amps Mute/unmute vs Multiplexer block

    I am sure there are other scenarios but I have always viewed the multiplexer as a tool if you have multiple ins and outs you need to switch between. If you one in and multiple outs then just bypassing blocks is efficient enough. That's my rule of thumb.

    OK so I have to ask...before I just say...bleh...and stay with the II

    I think that's a good thing. The FC paired with a III is a huge step above and beyond what the MFC/Axe combo provided. Sure, their are some wishlist items that would be great to have. One of the challenges I have seen is that many people expect the new product to work like the old. Instead of...

  33. Jack Napalm

    How accurate is Fractal's amp modeling?

    I think we are at the point that the question needs to be turned around. It's not how accurate the AxeFX is? It's can a tube amp sound as good as the AxeFX? You have considerable more control in the AxeFX to make it sounds any way you want. You don't with a tube amp.

    ADA MP II Into Axe-Fx?

    This. Not going to debate the why. Use the ADA in a send/receive style and then you still have full access to everything the III has to offer without coloring the sound of the ADA for every patch.

    Should I buy an FC-6 or an FC-12

    Buy what you can afford if you don't have a specific use. You won't hate having the 12. I like the 6. The 6 with two foot pedals fits nicely on a stage. It's all I need. I wouldn't mind having another 6 to put on the other side of a stage that would support it.
