    Axe-Fx III Firmware 19.00 Beta 1

    It could be just me but I'm getting improved feel when playing, more responsive/dynamic. The upper mids/top end are still bright and crunchy but with less unpleasant frequencies. The distortion overall seems cleaner somehow and there is more glassiness (like when a strat neck pickup hits a...

    FM3 Firmware Version 5.00 beta 1

    Had a rehearsal on the beta last night, OMG9 setup behaved impeccably and sounded amazing. It felt a bit snappier when connected to FM3 edit as well which is cool, no idea if anything's changed on that front.

I think the transition from Cab in the room or miced cab is the thing that gets most people. Once you get...

    Let's post: AITR clips

    As the others have said, if you use the latest version of AxeEdit, open a cab block, set slot 3 to scratchpad 1 and slot 4 to scratchpad 2, pan them left/right. Then drag the fullres cabs onto each of the slots 3 and 4. Then off you go. We have no way of saving them but it works and only takes...

    I hadn't realised but I've just uploaded into the scratchpad on my MK1 and they certainly sound like they are FullRes.... I just followed the instructions in the first post selecting scratchpad 1 and 2. No idea on 1.... I'm blending with your VH20 sm57/r121 and it all sounds great.

    AITR

    To add to this, my current axe3 patches try and emulate this very crudely. I have one Cab block for close mics and a second cab block in parallel for room/far field IRs. The room block has a reverb block after with a room verb to try and give this effect. Works ok but this would be ideal.

    Another +1 for asking this to mk1 at the expense of user can slots. It's a no brainer for me especially given the advances in axe edit 3. Clips sound amazing.

    UK market-Is it now best to order AF3 from Fractal in the US going forward?

    A few things, probably worth reigning in political outbursts on here. The fractal products won't touch royal mail, it'll go via ups like it always has done and whilst they will have to clear it through customs for a "small" fee, I doubt it will delay much.

    UK market-Is it now best to order AF3 from Fractal in the US going forward?

    My best guess is that fractal will not ship to the UK as it's a pain in the rear end. There's a chance that when ordering from g66 (if they wish to continue to deal with us moving forward....) Would be that you wouldn't pay the local vat/sales tax at the thier end and you would pay any...

    Am I the Only One Not Using High or Low Cuts Anymore?

    Same here, since beta 10 low and high cuts have not been required. More cab IRs seem to play nicer with more amps. For me, dialing tones is now select an amp and cab and off you go. I usually cut out a few DB in the low mids somewhere which opens up the low and high end further.
