    Opinion - Flat v. Angled Pedalboard for FC-12?

    Can't setup Mission SP-1 with FC6

    I still have problems with the Sp-1 toe switch as well. I have it setup to increase scene by +1 and randomly it will just start scrolling. It will even happen when I’m not using the system. I’ll leave the room with everything plugged in and come back an hour later with it scrolling after it...

    Can an exp pedal change scene?

    I bought a Mission SP-1 with a toe switch to accomplish this. It is acting weird though. I can play for hours nd it is fine and then out of nowhere it starts scrolling through scenes super fast.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.00 Beta #2

    Something that just started with this new Beta is when I have my Mission SP-1 plugged into the FC6 the software acts like I am hitting the button over and over very quickly. It could be something on my end, but everything is firmly attached to a pedalboard and hasn't moved from its spot since I...

    Post Your FC-12 and FC-6 Pedalboards Here!

    Everything I need! I may add a Preset -1 in there, but I am always close to my Axe 3 if I have to go back I love having the extra switch in the Mission Pedal so I can go into solo and Wah without tapdancing. I really only use 3 scenes so I make scene 4 the sound coming after the solo. Every...

    FC Controllers Now Shipping!

    This is good to hear. I only really need two layouts. For the rehearsal layout I want to add the volume increase/decrease. At some point I might condider using the looper, but right now I just want to finalize my Axe 3 setup and be done with it

    FC Controllers Now Shipping!

    After a painful hour of questioning my life I decided to order the 6 instead of waiting for the 12. I do 1 preset per song and I never use more than three scenes so I am feeling pretty good about my decision. I am pretty sure

    Does guitar choice make a huge difference?

    Reverse Delay

    I have Reverse Delay set in the mix (series) at 100% so all you here is a reverse solo. When I bypass it I lose my signal. I seem to remember with the Axe II when it was bypassed I still got sound. Is this a glitch or or change in the way it is setup?

    Long time Fractal guy here. Is "III" miles beyond the "II"?

    I wouldn’t say miles above, but it is enough that I don’t regret for one moment taking the leap. The sound and feel takes it to the next level with amazing future potential. It is also the first time with any equipment where I found a ton of presets that needed little to no tweaking to play...

    I had it happen after only a few uses. I emailed and got a reply within minutes (it was early in the day). I mailed it back that afternoon and they fixed it and mailed it back same day they received it. I’ve used it every day this month and had my first show this weekend with no issues.
  36. S

    Back to the drawing board

    I do the same thing in my band. I have a preset for each song. I have found the Fractal presets are VERY close in volume. I have been using them as the base and swap effects with ones not used in the loop. With a couple of exceptions I am pretty close volume wise
  37. S

    First show With the III.....

    I would have been in a complete panic. Hopefully I got my white screen issue out of the way early (first week). I played out with my Axe FX II for years without an issue so I am betting this was just an early release oversight. I am keeping my old one as a backup just in case

    White Screen of Death

    White Screen of Death

    I sent it back this morning so I’m hoping for a swift return. I’ve only had it for a few days so I didn’t have too much on it yet. Any problems with your unit since it was returned?

    White Screen of Death

    Agghhh, This just happened to me! Maybe used it 5 times. I contacted support and they responded within about 5 minutes, Still nervous since I just joined a new band, have to learn and program 50 songs for our first gig in 3 weeks.

    Who's Planning To "Eventually" Move Up To The III?

    I’m in! I will use my II as a backup since I sold all my giging amps to buy it. Always made me a little nervous not having a spare even though I have never had a major malfunction with it live. Plus I Love new tech!
  67. S

    Why 512 Presets?

    I do, but only because I give every song I play it’s own preset even if it is the same as other songs. Makes it way easier with my band when we play full nights at a bar.

    World's simplest/reliable MFC for Axe-Fx other than FAS MFC
