    I have a xl+ i bought new last year, the summer before the 3 came out. Those units should have plenty of space left!

    Guys, do you really think that Fractal has interests in releasing another firmware for a unit out of production? I don't think in firmware dimension problems... I think that fractal has released enough firmwares for a unit not supported anymore. I am an Axe 2 user and I hope in a new release...but...I can't see another work for this unit in the future. My 5 cents

    It seems like it's been established earlier in this thread that Cliff will release another firmware that will address some bugs, but otherwise I doubt their will be any sound improvements. Maybe some added effects, but I would not hold my breath.

    I wasn't expecting firmware Q10 to come out. Yet, here we are.
    I just think that, if we are going to get updates, they will be only for Amp modelling. And so far, there weren't any huge improvements to modelling in Axe 3, ever since it came out. So... nothing to update, really.
    Cliff was dropping hints that there will be more firmware, to quote him - He said, that all epiphanies he'll have will trip down to Axe 2 too. Also, in response to a missing amp for Axe 2, he said "Soon".

    I would be so excited to get the "PA+Cab" mode! :D

    I hope it too guys! But it's been a long time since they've released an update. For Standard and Ultra there was less waiting time before FW11. I know that now there are more products on the market and Cliff is just one man (a genius but just one). Maybe it will take more time than we can expect... Who knows? :D

    You can’t compare one model’s firmware number to another’s. FW 11 for the Standard and Ultra was released at the same time that the Axe II was launched, and it was made known that it would be the last ever firmware for those models. FW 10 for the Axe II was released some time after the Axe III was launched, and it was not declared to be the last. ​

    I know, I was a Ultra user and after I bought Axe 2...I think is justifiable if Cliff doesn't wants to upgrade the II models... Their support was more than expected and I'm happy with 10.01. Maybe we'll see a FW 11 also for MK1&2, XL and XL+.
    I don't want to look like a flamer, I wrote just my opinions, sorry for misunderstanding. :D

    Don't forget that Quantum 10 is not firmware 10 for the Axe II, but something like firmware 29.

    As a Axe FX II owner I am more than happy with the tones right now. I would be happy and grateful if Cliff gives more FWs for the II. But I get it if he won't. Personally I only care about amp modelings so If we still can get them that would be great. :) Time will tell.

    Is this just unbridled optimism or do you know something we don’t?

    Wow. That's the first post I've seen that's actually encouraging an end to firmware updates for the Axe II.

    One more update would be great. I’m for the tri chorus, and if any bugs fixed) I haven’t encountered any) I’m personally very happy with the II XL+. I don’t think we really need more amps, and Cliff owes us nothing... he gave us a great pre amp/processor with numerous updates. My 2 cents

    I am just being realistic and also tired of updating. So rather than hoping for more I prefer to have an official stated last firmware and then call it a day.
