1.09

Added “Effect Bypass Mode” to MIDI menu. When set to “Value” the bypass state of an effect assigned to a CC is controlled by the CC value. When set to “Toggle” the bypass state toggles whenever the CC message is received, regardless of the value.

Added “Default Scene” parameter to Global menu. When set to “As Saved” the scene selected when recalling a preset is the scene that was active when the preset was saved. When set to a particular scene value that scene will always be selected when a preset is recalled.

Added Channel parameter to modifiers. This allows applying the modifier to all channels or only a selected channel of an effect block.

Added Tilt EQ to Amp block Input EQ types.

Added Boost Type and Boost Level to Amp block. There are seven boost types: Neutral, T808, T808 Mod, Super OD, Full OD, AC Boost and Shimmer. All boosts act as “clean boosts” replicating the oft-used “Drive on 0, adjust Level as desired” boost technique. The boost allows boosting the amp block without requiring a separate Drive block. The Boost Level parameter controls the amount of boost.

Added Modifier ability to Formant block Resonance parameter.

Added “Prompt on Edited Preset Change” parameter to Global Settings. When set to ON the unit will prompt before changing presets if the current preset has been edited (and prevent you from losing your edits). NOTE: Be sure to change this value to OFF before performing!

Added Global Blocks. There are 8 Global Blocks per effect instance. Not all effects support Global Blocks (i.e. Mixer, RTA, etc.). There are four operations associated with a Global Block:

1. Link To Global Block: This operation links the selected effect with a Global Block. The Global Block data is NOT loaded. Upon saving the preset the Global Block is saved. Any other presets linked to this Global Block will load the Global Block data upon recall.

2. Load From Global Block: This operation loads data from a selected Global Block but does NOT link the block.

3. Link To and Load From Global Block: This operation links an effect to a Global Block AND loads data from the Global Block. Upon saving the preset the Global Block is saved. Any other presets linked to this Global Block will load the Global Block data upon recall.

4. Unlink From Global Block. This operation disassociates the effect from any Global Blocks.



Global Block operations are accessible from the Tools page in the Layout menu.

Improved scene switching so that Amp block does not mute if its channel hasn’t changed.

Improved Reverb algorithms.

Changed Looper behavior:

1. Pressing Undo while recording undoes the last recorded layer, as before. Pressing Undo when the loop is stopped now erases the loop data. Pressing Undo during playback undoes the last recorded layer. Pressing Undo again (during playback) restores the undone layer. Subsequent presses toggle the layer on and off.

2. Pressing Record now always starts a new layer (previously pressing Record during the first layer stopped recording and entered playback).

3. Pressing Once while recording stops the loop.

Added Dry Level parameter to Looper Block.

Improved Input block noise gate. When the Type is set to Intelligent (default) the noise gate now provides smart EMI filtering which reduces hum and buzz. NOTE: For best results the AC Line Frequency parameter in the Global Settings menu should be set to match the power line frequency of your country (i.e. 60 Hz for North America, 50 Hz for EU, etc.).

Improved Amp block output transformer modeling.

Various changes to support Axe-Edit.

Various changes to support FC-6/12 controllers.

Fixed Scene MIDI block not sending correct data on preset change.

Fixed cabinet names not showing up in cab picker until background tasks are finished.

Fixed wrong Preamp Bias value in Plexi 2204 model.

Fixed Pitch block LFO Tempo not being updated on tempo changes.

Fixed RTA block not updating on preset change.

Fixed noise in Looper block when pressing Undo

Wow, that’s one big update. The Amp boost and global blocks in particular are awesome.

So, one global block save comprises all four channels of that block then... or however many channels there are?

The boost feature is awesome. Looks like some additional blocks were added to Axe-Edit III. Pitch for sure. Haven't checked them all but fantastic work.

Like the little "Bypass" rectangle on the lower right corner of the edit block window in Axe-Edit III and it has a modifier attached. That wans't there before right....? Anyway, very slick.
