Maybe reduce both banks to 512 so the user address space still has User1 and User2, or make that an option alongside just dropping User2. For a while, until my unit got more IRs added, I was using User1 for IRs that came with presets I had downloaded or purchased and User2 for IRs I personally shot, or mixed from purchased IRs via CabLab or MixIR in Logic. It is handy to have two User banks, so an option to reduce size of both instead if just dropping one would be cool for people using the two banks as a sorting method....If the banks were able to be variable rather than fixed in size based on your usage we could have a winner
Does it have to be all or nothing? Could it be possible to allow a mix of FullRes and regular in the same bank?That would be a nightmare. It would break the factory presets and many of the user's presets.
The only possibility would be to change the User 2 bank to a User FR bank. So you would give up 1024 User IR slots in exchange for 32 FullRes user slots.
I would gladly give up a bunch of user IR space on my MK I to have support for this feature. As it stands I only use a few user cabs (couple from LT and some acoustic guitar IRs). Would love to be able to use this and not have to upgrade to the MK II just yetSome answers:
1. This will currently only be available on the Axe-Fx III Mark II. Our other products do not have the NV memory to store the large IRs. I will look into ways of possibly supporting this on the other products. The Mark II has double the NV memory of the Mark I. All the NV memory on the Mark I is allocated. If the demand is great enough one possibility is to reduce the number of slots in the User IR banks and allocate the freed memory to FullRes slots.
I use headphones a lot because quiet is very desired in our house. The .mp3 samples are interesting and definitely sounded more like an amp in the room, but I think I'd stick with the current sound of the cabs.OTOH on the headphones I guess it must be enormous to have that sound but headphones will not bring the feedback that interacts with the strings like a backline amp would
I always felt like Universal Audio with their Apollos and expansion hardware units could have turned into a competitor but they don't seem interested in going that direction.Name a competing product with an expansion slot.
While I think they sound interesting, I wouldn't use them because I want to maintain as much preset compatibility as I can between my FM3, FX3 and FM9 when it arrives. So, I vote for having a system setting that toggles that space allocation.
