    Announcing Axe-Fx III Mark II TURBO

    You are absolutely right !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I do have the MK1 and the MK2 and also a FM3. I played 4 gigs last week, made plenty of money and used the FM3 for all four gigs. Why? Because I am a lazy guy and the audience don't care about what amp I use :sweatsmile:

    FM3 + Morningstar MC6 = does the USB Type A Supply Power ?

    But the FAS LINK Out provides power. Should provide enough power to run the Morningstar. But first, you have to find out the specs. Voltage, DC or AC. Then you could use a AC/DC converter or DC/DC switching regulator to fit your needs.

    Does playing through an FRFR make you really feel like you gotta amp?

    Well, the benefit - for me as a player with 10++ gigs a month - is convenience. But - at the same time - also good sims and amazing effects. The most important thing ist how it sounds over the PA. Remember, you play for the audience. They pay for you ;-). So I have to live with that the venue...

    Wireless Options/Connections for FC12/6

    Axe-Fx III power conditioner or voltage regulator?

    The manual says 90–264 VAC, 47 – 63 Hz (universal input) Even the cheapest switch mode power supplies have surge protection, overload protection and heat protection. And I assume that Cliff has designed a "state of the art" power supply for the AXE FX3. So no need for a conditioner...

    CLR wedge vs Line 6 Powercab

    I have the PC Plus here at my place. Right now I do compare it with my Yamaha DXR10. Well, I prefer the DXR10 over the PC. The PC ist not that bad, but the the response while playing is different. Does anybody know if there is a ADA conversion in the PC. Even in Flat mode?
  56. Keybi

    When does the first AD conversion occures? Axe-Fx III

    Well, They try to reduce latency of course. Look - for example - to Shure's Top Of The Line IEM. (PSM 1000) Not digital ;-) . Whenever I play my old analog amps, I often use the Relay G70. The 2 ms don't bother me ;-)
  57. Keybi

    When does the first AD conversion occures? Axe-Fx III

    True ;-) But as a guitarist I don't mind the quality of the AD /DA loss but the latency. The AXE ist pretty good in that, compared to other brands. So whenever I play with the AXE FX 3 I don't use digital wireless systems like Line 6 Relay or similar. Normally a good cable or my trusty Shure...

    Hi Guy. There is no FC available here in Germany. Right now I use a Voss MC10. You see the small box that allows me to use a CAT5 cable for bidirectional communication?. I still need an extra AC Adapter. So wouldn't that be cool to use the power of the FASLINK Output. Again, that only will...
  59. Keybi

    Is it possible...

    I will not start soldering as long as I don't have the needed informations. Don't worry. ;-). So far I still don't know if the communication works with 2 or three wires. And I still don't know the voltage either. I need 7 - 9 Volt DC. So in case it provides 9 V DC and 2000mW, everything is fine...
  60. Keybi

    Is it possible...

    Wattage? That is the product of current and voltage. So P=U*I . So my controller draws 90mA. The equation therefore is P= U * 0,09. Considering the FAS provides 9 Volt , the wattage is 0,81 Watt. That is not that much. I think the FC12 needs more ;-)
  61. Keybi

    Is it possible...

    Sure ;-) , but I only need around 90 mA .
  62. Keybi

    Is it possible...

    to use the FAS Connector as "Phantom Power" for my MIDI CONTROLLER?. Does the FAS Connector provide AC or DC ? What is the voltage? Must be serial data over power. So I will leave the data alone and only use the power ;-)
