Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Notes​


19.02

Updated 59 Bassguy and 5F8 Tweed models to include both Drive controls.

Added 59 Bassguy Normal, 5F8 Tweed Normal and 5F8 Tweed Jumped amp models.

Added JMPRE-1 Output EQ type to Amp block. This type replicates the active EQ used in the JMP-1 preamp (see below).

Added JMPre-1 Clean1/2 models. Note: The real amp has a fixed, passive tone stack with an active 4-band EQ. Therefore, the Bass/Mid/Treble controls when using Authentic Tone Controls are mapped to the Graphic EQ. The passive tone stack itself, however, is adjustable. With all controls at noon the tone stack is equivalent to the real amp’s fixed tone stack. You can access these controls using the Ideal Tone Controls or via Axe-Edit.

Updated JMPre-1 OD1/2 models. As with the Clean1/2 models the Bass/Mid/Treble controls now are mapped to the Graphic EQ when using Authentic Tone Controls.

Updated default cathode follower values for Matchbox D-30 model.

Added Spread control to Dual Delay and Tape types in Delay block. Spread acts as master pan in this case and is modifiable.

Added assignable third LFO to Delay block. This LFO can be assigned to Level, Pan or Spread and multiplies the corresponding value by the LFO value.

Improved Input block gate performance.

Fixed Drive block can crash under rare circumstances when switching between certain models (from Blackglass 7K to diode-based model).

Fixed Amp block Transformer Match control not working properly.

Renamed Speaker Impedance to Voice Coil Resistance to more accurately describe the function of the control. Note that this includes all other “parasitic” resistances, i.e., speaker cable resistance, output transformer winding resistance, etc.

The following FC enhancements/fixes are implemented:

  • Added “Scene Level + Save” to the “Utility” functions.
  • Added a “Mini-LCD Invert Mode” option under the APPEARANCE section of the FC Controllers’ Config page.
  • Added a “STARTUP VIEW” to the FC Controllers: Device page.
  • Added an option for “2nd Press = Previous Bank” to Bank: Select function.
  • Added an option for “2nd Press = Previous Preset” to Preset: Select function.
  • Added the option “2nd Press" to Effect: Select Channel function. The two choices are "Smart Bypass" which is a pre-existing feature, and "Previous Channel" which toggles to the previously selected channel instead.
  • Added a “Current Channel” Mini-Display Label option to Effect: Chan Inc/Dec.
  • Added a 1.5 second delay to functions that trigger a save of the preset to allow multiple actions before a single save.
  • Fixed Bank limit calculations in some circumstances.
  • Updated the switch ring LED to be dim instead of off for Function Effect: Select Channel when Smart Bypass is ON and the effect is in the preset but the effect is bypassed.
  • Fixed stand-in switches not executing the tap function correctly when a hold function is assigned.
  • Added "Current" option to the display functions or Bank: Inc/Dec function
  • Added "Current Name" and "Current #" options to the display functions or Preset: Inc/Dec and Scene: Inc/Dec functions.
Various other fixes and improvements.

Cool!

Couple questions:

- For the "second press previous..." actions, does that mean second quick press, like double press? Or is it triggered if you do that action a second time, regardless of how long it's been since the first one?

- Can you expand on this a bit: "Added a 1.5 second delay to functions that trigger a save of the preset to allow multiple actions before a single save." Is the idea that you can hit Save first, then change some other stuff within 1.5 seconds, and have the then-current state of the preset get saved?
