An updated version of Axe-Edit is forthcoming.

Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Notes​


17.01


Added 10 FullRes IRs to the Legacy bank provided by Valhallir and York Audio. These are at the end of the bank. These can be loaded into the IR Player blocks or into Slots 3 and 4 of the Cabinet blocks. Note that Slots 1 and 2 of the Cabinet blocks do not support FullRes.

Adjusted Looper behavior so that when reaching the maximum recording time the behavior switches to that defined by Record 2nd Press ONLY on the first pass of a new recording.

Added dedicated Pitch Shifting to the Reverb block. This can be used to create “Shimmer Reverbs” easier than using separate Pitch and Reverb blocks (and with less CPU usage). Several new types are included to demonstrate the capability.

Overhauled the Megatap block. See the updated Blocks Guide for details.
[Edit: Preview release here: https://www.fractalaudio.com/downloads/manuals/fas-guides/Megatap.pdf]

Fixed pressing Tuner button in Axe-Edit brings up Reverb UI.

Fixed Amp block power tube “kvb” not being set correctly in rare circumstances. This caused the output level of the amp block to change depending upon the previous preset used.

Fixed wrong B+ voltage for Temolo Lux amp model.

Fixed IR Capture not saving correctly if IR Type set to UltraRes.

Improved CPU usage.

Various other fixes and improvements.

It really is extraordinary. I had read parts of the forum extensively before buying the Axe FX III, but I was not aware of the frequency of updates; I just constantly feel like it's the best purchase I've ever made, and even though I could not easily afford buying it at the time, the quality has long since obliterated the guilt I felt. Thanks so much for your dedication.

As much as anything that is why I want a III so much. :)

It's safe to assume the 10 Fullres IRs added to the Legacy bank are MK II exclusive, right? Because I've just checked and there are nowhere to be found in MK I (and yes, I did a refresh after a new FW).
