No need to reset amp block.
This is just IMHO, (and mixed in with various non-sequiturs) but I think the short answer for you is no need to worry about it this time. In general, if and when "resetting the amp block" is recommended, (in this case it is not) then doing so is simply to "take full advantage" of the adjustments in algorithms which may have changed, by getting the correct values in those specific cases where they don't exactly match with what was going on in the earlier FW. [It is important to recognize that the updated FW contains the updated algorithms already - now that you've updated - so resetting the amp block just ensures every value is now correct in those cases where a value may be entirely new or may have evolved in some way where Cliff & FractalClaus can't merely (merrily?) leave it alone or re-scale it to match with your existing preset.] Ordinarily doing this will be a matter of taste anyway because of your hard work - so you just back up and take it on a case-by-case basis for those presets you already have.Thanks for the FW FAS!
I've never really understood the whole "Resetting the amp block"?
That's kinda difficult when you have customized and tweaked an amp to your liking the basically revert to factory defaults.
Also, would you have to reset all your amps in all your presets? Asking cause I just don't know.
The xl and xl+ have more room for factory IR'S, these are the ones that don't fit in the mk I and IISo first time firmware updater here... lol....
What is the purpose of the folder of "UltraRes Samples" ? Do we install these as well somehow and somewhere ? I didn't see any mention in the release notes or firmware update guide so figured to ask.
Nothing says gratitude like telling the programmer you take his updates for granted and don't trust his improvements.I'll give it my usual couple of weeks before updating. Just enjoying what I've got already at the moment. I'll certainly keep an eye on this thread though.
I would slide down the stairs like a two year old if that's what it took to get to new FW.I need to see if I can hobble down the stairs with these darn crutches to my studio without breaking another bone and try this update. Thanks Cliff!
4 more weeks with this cast on my foot! I can't drive and I'm about to go nuts!
