    SKB Travel Case for Axe-Fx III and FC-12

    Power to 2nd FC-12

    Hey there Fractal folks, Not sure where this belongs or if it's already been expressed, but I use 2 FC-12's and would really love it if there was a way to upgrade the hardware so that power could flow to the second unit and eliminate the need for a separate power supply. Any chance? Still...

    Can I make a custom cable for multiple FC's or use a wire loom?

    I have two and am in heaven. :) I bought a Roland PSB-120 power supply. It has an inline transformer so there's no wall wart. Additionally, the cables are longer and more robust than the usual wall warts you can get. I'd love to power both through Fastlink but this works very well.

    FC Power Supply

    Thanks for all the replies. They were very helpful. I found this article which was helpful.

    Do You Hear a Difference

    What bothers me most are the tactile differences between the Axe Fx and real amps. The knobs on the unit are easier to rotate than the real thing. They stay that way for every amp selected. They neither vary in their rotational resistance nor do they vary in position. They're always in the same...

    What about "Wind and Wuthering", "Trick of the Tail", "...and then there were three" and "Duke"? I loved those albums. They did a great job of "Supper's Ready" on Seconds Out. And at least one side of "Three Sides Live" is great. Abacab had some good tracks. After that, well...yeah.
