    Not sure if this is a bug or >>I accidentally did something stupid<<. I've uploaded a factory preset with CS 1 assigned to (momentarily) engage the rotary block. It's set the same on all 12 switches in the scenes layout (I don't use it this way, I'm just demonstrating the anomaly). Every...

    Oh yeah, my AxeFx could easily do what this does. Same can be said for the new UA pedals (I have the Starlight). I'm an addict, sometimes I just need to buy something then someone on Reverb gets a killer deal. But this pedal and my Starlight in front of my Pro Reverb amp? Hmmm...

    How to Run FM3 with Acoustic-Electric for Best Acoustic and Blended Sounds

    I have the ghost system in my Tele. I have a stereo jack in the guitar. The tip is magnetic, the ring is piezo. So I use a 1/4" TRS (stereo) cable from the guitar and split it out on the Fractal end with an insert cable similar to this (I got mine from Best-Tronics): easy peezy, works great.
  23. brianv4

    How to Run FM3 with Acoustic-Electric for Best Acoustic and Blended Sounds

    You can. Use a TRS 1/4" cable from the guitar output to a splitter (like an insert cable). Tip is magnetic/in 1, ring is piezo/in 2. I keep the switch on the guitar set for both and use a footswitch on the Fractal to change between them. There's a lot of ways to configure in the Fractal...

    I don't get into volume wars. If a drummer, f ex ;-) starts getting loud, first inclination is to turn up. I stay put, not getting into the battle and the ear plugs go in. It's not always fair to say the sound tech is not invested in the band or his job. These guys in casino's have other...

    Is it possible to have a separate footswitch layout for each scene?

    Haha, my math was right. I multiplied 8x8. Don't ask what I was thinking coz I don't know! Short answer to OP is yes, you can have any switch be whatever you want up to 24 PP switches across any layout in as many instances.
  42. brianv4

    Is it possible to have a separate footswitch layout for each scene?

    24 different PP switches that can be assigned to any switch in any layout. That should be more than enough to satisfy anyone. I'd imagine you'd want some duplicates. Surely he wasn't asking for 64! Was he??

    Question, if you're using (f ex) Exp A as a volume and it's set at 60% then switch to B what happens to the volume, does it stay at 60%? And what happens when you go back to A, does it stay at 60% until the pedal returns to the point?

    Is little to no feedback just the way it is with modelers?

    When I get my rig cranking it's easy but different than a traditional guitar cab. With a CLR you just have to find the right spot(s) i.e. don't put your guitar pickup up to the horn, nasty!
  66. brianv4

    Anyone used a Atomic CLR with a Xitone wedge?

    I had an MBritt Xitone and a CLR neo at the same time. I'd use the Xitone to set the rack on in the backline and the CLR in front as a wedge. Loved the tone! They're different but complimentary

    Do you turn the AxeFx off when it's thunderstorming out?

    I'm using an AxeFxIII and an FM3 depending on my situation. So I'm still tweaking and moving switch assignments around (I always use per-preset switching). I'm pretty close to being consistent between the 2 units but it would be a lot easier if I was able to drag and drop switch assignments...
