    FC-12 shared between two guitarists?

    So my band is currently using the Axe FX3 to run two guitars and a bass. Guitar 1/Input 1 Guitar 2/Input 3 Bass/input 3 The bass is straightforward and doesn't need any effects however the guitars require to switch from clean channel to distortion on a few songs and occasionally need 1 guitar...

    Fixed Footswitches / scribble strips problem + annoying encoder ranges in scene controllers

    Hey, so here's a bug to report from me. It takes some time to be able to replicate this one. I have the non-HP version with FW1.04. After having the unit on for a few hours and editing a preset, testing it, re-editing, the footswitches scribble strips suddenly don't show the labels, but are...

    Tutorial: How to make a footswitch with led for Axe fx 2 for soloing boosting without batteries. Photos inside.

    Hi there! First, sorry for my english :sweatsmile: . Usually I'm using a FCB1010 midi controller, but recently I've joined a metal band where I only need a main sound, and a booster for soloing. First, about axe set up: I can activate/deactivate several blocks with just one press. In I/O->ctrl...

    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...

    Boss FS-6 to switch presets in Axe Fx Ultra

    Just double checking my work here, I'm thinking about buying a Boss FS-6 and have it set to increase/decrease presets for my ultra. Ill be running a TS cable form each output on the FS-6 into the Pedal 1 and 2 inputs on the Ultra. I'll set the FS-6 to latching. One reason I'm asking is because...

    3D Printed External FC Switch Box / Expression Box

    I mentioned this idea in another thread... was inspired by @lqdsnddist build of an external switch box. I modeled a 3D switch box in Tinkercad, to match the profile and switch spacing of the FC-12. Designed it to accommodate four momentary foot switches and two expression potentiometers...

    Can I do this? (footswitch question)

    In my never-ending quest to simplify my presets and switches, I'd like to set up a footswitch in the following manner: normal function controls amp input gain via a control switch secondary function (0.5sec hold) changes the amp state from x to y and vise versa. Here's the catch - I'd like...

    Footswitch Failure in AX8

    Hi Everyone - currently have some serious issues with the AX8 Unit. I have had the unit for ~3 months, I bought it used. Initially had an issue w/ the F3 button sticking, but I reset the firmware and it seemed to correct the problem. Two days ago I began to have issues w/ the other...

    Wish A Page Function for Footswitches

    That way Page 1 could be 8 effects and page 2 could be scenes/presets or however we would want to set it up. I don't know if this is technically possible on this hardware, but it would be cool.

    2018 - Midi Raider - Scene Programming, HELP!

    Ahhh... this seems to be an ongoing problem from back in 2011-12 with no answer. It seems to me that there's no way to set up Scenes still and i've scoured the internet for videos/forum tips etc. Just got my AxFXII XL+ and a Midi Raider and taught myself Midi (never used it outside of...

    FCB1010 sometimes not communicating with AxeFX II XL+

    How's it going! I couldn't find an answer anywhere so I decided to reach out since I'm very clueless. I own an Axe FX XL II and a FCB1010 loaded with the Eureka PROM, running them w two MIDI cables. They used to work great together but lately I've been running into an issue where the board...

    Boss FS setup for Axe-Fx III

    Hello, I recently bought my Axe-Fx III, and so far it has been a dream come true. However, I cannot figure out how to get a simple footswitch (Boss FS-5U) to switch scenes. In fact, I cannot get the footswitch to do anything at all. I read through the manual and have searched extensively...

    Compatible Footswitch for Axe-Fx III

    Hey guys, while waiting for the FC, is there anything else that can be used with the FX III right now? Say the VL Ground Control or Voes MC-10? Is it difficult to program them to work with the FX III?

    ActitoN MIDI 4 way foot controller - phantom power.

    Hi, I just have this footswitch (ActicoN 4) and wander if can plug it to my AXE FX II XL. It has 7-pin MIDI plug out and manufacturer states : "The controller needs a power supply (9-15V AC or DC) or phantom power. Supports phantom power on pin 1&3 or 6&7 (9-15V AC or DC)." I've learned 1A...

    Can I use my Egnater Renegade Footswitch with the Axe-Fx III?

    So my III is in the mail and should be here by Friday. This is my first foray into the modeling world, I'm a bit nervous about the price tag, the expenses down the road for foot-switches, FRFR cabinets etc etc if I decide to gig out with it, but I'm pretty excited! I record quite a bit in my...

    Help with external footswitch

    Hi all! I had a couple of momentary footswitches lying around the house, and I wired them up in a box with two jacks, so I could have two easy access switches at all times with the AX8 (as I mostly use the scene switching mode). Here is the catch: I've set them up so the controllers reset (PC...

    Momentary DPDT Footswitch to control Boost

    Hi! I have an MFC101 and I've just got a footswitch loaded with 2 toggle DPDT to connect on it and I'd like to know if it is possible to control BOOST parameter of the AMP Block with it. I'm trying to avoid using an expression pedal for this, but when I used this footswitch, BOOST parameter stay...

    Wish More footswitches assignments

    I would like to have more footswitches assignments. Maybe another page footswitches assignments (selectable from the F switches) to have 16 footswitches assignments per preset.

    Footswitch assignment

    Hi, I perform as a solo guitarist/vocalist and I'm looking for a guitar multieffect that would allow me to change sounds during the songs with minimum "stepdance" on the footswitches. I went through the AX8 manual and viewed several videos, but I still have some questions: 1. Can I turn on/off...

    Wish More than 2 Midi Footswitches

    I could use more than 2 midi footswitches. For my setup, 4 would be fantastic and add a lot of flexibility. I'm using my FX8 to also drive amp switching on my Mesa Mark V via an RJM mini amp gizmo. I'm using 1 at the moment for my boost/solo selection which works tidily, and I'm having to use...

    Fixed Bank Up assigned to Footswitch Goes Beyond Wrap

    So here's the problem, if you assign Bank Up to a footswitch, and you have a wrap limit of 3 banks (1-3) pushing the Bank Up Footswitch from Bank 3 should bring you back to Bank 1, but instead you go to Bank 4. Assigning Bank Up to a Function switch does not have this issue.

    Footswitch status LED is weak

    Hi all Axe FX users ! I am a brand new (and very happy) Axe FX 2 user. I own the XL version and loaded a Quantum 2.0.x firmware recently. I run the Axe FX 2 in 4CM on my guitar amp. My question is about the pedal connectors on the Axe FX. I'm using a footswitch on the first pedal input and an...

    4 button midi footswitch

    So I'm trying to resist doing this but I think it will help my FS layout stay a bit more consistent so I can always select presets and use the AX8's switches for IA's, Scenes and changing banks. I am thinking of adding a 4 button midi footswitch at the bottom to always select presets 1-4 in...
