Hello... What setting is null? I play my FM3 through a Mesa Boogie 50/50 power amp and a couple of cabs. Sounds awesome. Curious to try this but do not see a "Null" selection from the drop down on my AxeFXiii or FM3.. Are you turning something down? Thanks in advance.
@MNG - this was meant for you. Thanks

Yes. You'll hear the Axe III's direct output just like if your DAW isn't even connected. The only latency you get that way is the A/D and D/A conversion and internal processing latency, which is around 2 ms total.

The only time you want to use software monitoring is if you are trying to monitor the input with real time effects from your DAW. In that case you want to use the new mute option for Output 1 in the I/O menu so you hear only the software monitoring. If you try to use direct and software monitoring at the same time, you'll get phasing and/or echo depending on your buffer size settings
Good to know, thanks so much for the input! I'm still learning...

I really envy those who understand and hear how compressors work!
I don't know what to hear?
I do not know what, why to roll!
I do not know what, why?
What is a good compressor setting for a Fender Stratocaster?
I love the beautiful clear sounds!

try this as a starting point before the drive/amp blocks:
JFET type
instrument level
compression 2.7
attack 0.4ms
release 140ms
auto attack/release off
lookahead 0

this should give you a clear yet punchy response with fast transients (e.g. plucking your low E string hard) followed by smooth sustain as the note decays

Off topic, but .. The old page from OVNIlab was helpful to me, universal audio and many other sources have explanations of musical compression and the types of circuits used. I found it helpful to play through a pedal compressor at first, the "smoothing" of compression (loud transients softened, low volume relatively louder) can change how you play depending on what you are after. The other thing I found helpful was to run a recording [guitar, voice, whatever] through AF (or DAW) and try the different compressors - if I start with extreme settings it is easy to hear what the compressor is doing, and then I can adjust to suit. It's FUN, but lately I've been getting into parallel compression (some signal passed through without compression) which can help preserve dynamics and a more natural sound.

Does it not, is anything missing? Everything working fine here
Yes for example I am not sure that the new cabs impedance appears in the list in axe edit . If they release a new delay for example it happens that axe edit don’t show it until axe edit is updated too . They update it quick everytime that’s not a problem

Ah gotcha, though the Curves are here already in the list

Legend!
The editors always retrieve parameter values from the hardware. So when curves are added to the firmware of the hardware, the editor will show the new ones, without needing a full update. "Refreshing the definitions" suffices.

But the firmware has no control over the design of the editor. So when a new parameter is added to the firmware, the editor itself must be adapted by FAS and updated by the user to show that new control / field.

Thanks!
This is a good setting!
I think I can build from that!

How has the update to the compeessor change the Schaffer replica effect using two compressors in series? Better? Same? Do they need tweeking now? Haven't updated yet.

Thanks,

Roger
