    AXE III “A Button”Non-Responsive!

    I’m brand new to this forum and have only owned this product since late August so I want to be specific. The button on the far left of the face of the unit does not work… The one under the full color screen, marked with an “A” below it. When it first arrived, it worked fine but no longer. I...

    Wish Assign MIDI Functions Directly to FC-12 / FC-6 Footswitches

    The ability to directly assign MIDI functions (without control switches or with additional control switches) to the footswitches of the FC-12 would be life changing (or at least gig changing). Being able to assign Note-On, Note-Off, and other messages would let the AXE III be a viable master...

    Using a FC-12 to Control Backing Tracks?

    Is there a way to have the FC-12 send MIDI messages separate from scene changes? I run backing tracks so I've previously been using a RJM Mastermind to send different messages to to the AXE III I have and the Ableton rig. I want to retain the ability to stay on the same sound Any ideas would...

    FC-6 / FC-12 Waitlist... When?

    I'm waiting for an FM3, I'm also waiting a Foot Controller, does anyone know how long that waitlist will be? When I buy my FM3 it would be nice to be offered to buy a an FC and have them shipped together, any chance of that?

    Two Guitars and one bass at the same time in AXEIII

    hi I tried to make a simple example using the AXEIII with three instruments at the same time. I used a factory preset from solo Synth ( 246 funky synth) and added ampeg svt for the bass guitar and the Bandmaster for rhythm guitar. All instruments with yours inputs and outputs. Some reverb...

    Implemented Add Gain Reduction Meter Bar to Gate/Expander Block

    I was wondering if it would it be possible to add the gain reduction meter bar to the Gate/Expander block? In the gate from the IN block, there is a meter already, so I assume it should no be difficult to do the same there. I find this meter very helpful while adjusting gate settings, especially...

    3.01 Tone Match BUGS?

    Firmware 3.01 I've noticed some strange behavior in the Axe-Fx III Tone Match block? It seems to have something to do with the 'Live' vs 'Off-Line' modes? When selecting an 'Off-line' 'tone matched' preset, The match sounds wrong until you select the 'Tone Match' block (Axe-Edit or hardware...

    Wish Axe-Fx III boot right into Tuner

    Turn on Axe, last preset is loaded then tuner is displayed vs. having to select it. Pretty much the first thing I do is tune up. I’m sure others do as well.

    AustinBuddy's new 1400+ Naked Amps TonePack for the Axe-Fx III is now available

    It's HERE! You can now purchase the 1400+ Naked Amps TonePack for your Axe-Fx III! This product is not a simple port-over from the 700+ TonePack. It's a new design that takes great advantage of the Axe-Fx III's firmware, new Amp and Block channels, and new Cab block. The tones were dialed in...

    Front vs. Rear input on the Axe III

    I remember this thread bellow which highlighted how plugging in a guitar into the front input vs. the rear input on the Axe II sounded different. Is this the same with the III or will they all sound the exact same? I'm mainly wondering because I was hoping to plug my wireless into the rear input...

    Axe FX III Video Reviews

    Anyone early on the waiting list planning on doing a full review on the AXE III shortly after they get the unit? Personally I'll be waiting till the FCs are available before purchasing but I'd really like to see what this new flagship can do! Seriously pumped for this unit and the future years...

    Will 3rd party expression pedals work with axe III’s FC?

    I run 3 mission ep-1s with my mfc currently. I’m not very knowledgeable with this stuff but since the new FC is dumb and isn’t an actually midi controller does that mean we would have to buy a special expression pedal from fractal if you wanted to control an expression pedal of their FC?

    Help me! Floor vs. Rack

    I know that we don’t have experience with the axe III yet and know nothing about the ax8-2 but I’m really having trouble deciding which way I want to go. I know I don’t want to buy both. I’ve used the axe fx II with the MFC101 for years but have no experience with the axe8. It would be awesome...

    Double-tracking (axe iii pitch block)

    I’ve used the enhancer block and HAAS delay to mimick two guitars being played at once on my axe ii. The new pitch block for the axe iii has something called double-tracking. Anyone have any info on is? I’m super intrigued!
