    Poll: MK1 owners, 1024 User 2 cab slots or 32 FullRes cab slots?

    Option 3 - none of the above. The IR difference is irrelevant for live performances. I could really go for Output 3 cloning Output 1 though,

    Congrats on the FM9! Bet that new product would be even more awesome with set list capability. :) Oddly the existing set list topic was closed, hence the restart.

    SetList (Lack Of) Frustration

    I too, use different sounds for each section in a song. However, I rarely use more than 5 scenes per song (Hotel California w/ guitar harmonies uses all 8). I can't imagine having to select a different preset (and scene?) in the midst of playing and singing (segues notwithstanding). What...

    SetList (Lack Of) Frustration

    A song is a preset, a set list is the entire collection of songs for a show. Sections? Sets within the set list? This doesn't need to be complicated - you need a layout to put your fractal in (or out of) set list mode and to select which set list. From there you should be able to use...

    SetList (Lack Of) Frustration

    It's a linked list of presets. Fractal already uses linked lists for other features. Let's not make more of it than need be. How many? 0-99 sounds good. Add a feature to Axe-Edit to create and organize, and a set list layout for the FC's. Not all that different from AFX2 - if anything...

    SetList (Lack Of) Frustration

    I am. Every weekend through December. I play in two bands regularly (sometimes overlapping songs) and have more songs in each band than we normally play per show. So the ability to generate set lists is essential. It avoids the constant shuffling of presets - or worse, duplication of...

    Actually, in the Midwest, I was live gigging (limited audience size) as well as doing virtual shows weekly last year. I now have a full weekend schedule through to 2022. Anything you can do would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Set list - when is that coming and why is it buried in the FC forum?

    This needs a bump. @FractalAudio has done wonders with the latest firmware and awesome new algorithms, but with all that a needed (and honestly, promised) feature has gone ignored. I'm gigging every weekend again (finally - heck, I'm doing two shows today) and having the set list feature...

    Mesa 20/20's are not known for low-end prowess unless modded - and even then pushing a 4x12?? I used to run my AFXII into a 20/20 and two Thiele cabs with vintage EVM 12L's. Decent low-end for 80's rock, but not really built for chugging. I used a Stereo 2/90 for that.
