This version fixes a bug in Beta 7 that was causing wrong parameter values to be loaded when recalling presets created with earlier firmware versions. It is HIGHLY recommended to install this beta if you are using Beta 7.

IMPORTANT - READ ME - DON'T IGNORE - LISTEN UP CHUCKLEHEADS

1. This is BETA firmware. It is not guaranteed to be flawless and bug-free.
2. It WILL change the sound of your presets.
3. The volume levels of your presets WILL likely change.
4. Not every amp model has been updated yet. Some amp models may sound completely wrong. If an amp model is not listed below there is a possibility it won't sound right.
5. There may be issues with Axe-Edit not working correctly for some amp models.
6. You need to perform a "Refresh After FW Update" if using Axe-Edit.
7. If your favorite amp isn't in either of these lists it's because I haven't done it yet. No need to ask about its status. If you ask about its status you will be sent to the North Wall for the rest of your mortal life.


IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED TO ACCEPT THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS THEN YOU SHOULD NOT INSTALL THIS FIRMWARE.

It's been said before, however, I'd like to say a simple thanks to Cliff and team. Your dedication and constant efforts to improve this device is truly amazing. There is simply no other manufacturer in the music equipment industry that I have ever seen that comes close to this level of support and commitment to improvement. I cannot wait to try this new FW. Cheers all!

Damn! I was just about to load Beta 7! Thanks Cliff!
I have done all my tweaks in beta 7, see this , say 🤬. And with luck everything is fine 7 to 8, all the settings are there and no need to retweak . 5 to 7 all the levels were down , all the amp needs to be rebooted cause they sound dead without doing it . Well . Everything is fine . The 2c++ is 👍🏻

has that small bug with the BE/HBEs from a previous beta been fixed or should we still roll back the preamp bias excursion
on the model?
