Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Notes

1.13

Added “Dual Chorus” type to Chorus block. This type has independent LFOs for the left and right delay lines. Delay lines are BBD emulations.

Added “SSB Upper” and “SSB Lower” types to Ring Modulator block. These select the upper and lower sidebands of the modulation, respectively.

Added single-sideband ring modulators to Multidelay block. These can be used to create strange and interesting echo sounds. To defeat the modulators turn Master Ring Mod Mix to 0.

Added chorusing to individual delay lines in Multidelay block. There are four LFOs, one for each delay line. The rate and depth of each LFO is individually adjustable. These add to the main LFOs which modulate each delay line at the same frequency but different phases. By using short delay times the Multidelay block can now act as four parallel choruses, each with independent rate and depth.

Added Quad-Tap Band Delay type to Multidelay block. This type has the same configuration as the Quad-Tap delay except the filters are outside the feedback paths.

Added band highlighting to RTA block. Turn Value knob to select desired band. The frequency of the selected band is displayed in the upper left corner.

Increased number of channels in Multiplexer block to six, one for each row.

Changed preset recall behavior if Ignore Redundant PC is on. If Ignore Redundant PC is on and the desired scene (set via PC mapping) is different than the current scene the preset is not loaded but the scene IS changed.

Added MIDI support for 3rd-party devices to set/get scene, channel, bypass, scene names and preset names, control the Looper, tap tempo, etc. via System Exclusive messages. See the Axe-Fx III MIDI for Third-Party Devices document for implementation details.

Added Preset Increment/Decrement controllers. These can be used to increment/decrement the current preset. The Preset Start and Preset End parameters control the range of presets selected and selection wraps at the limits. Preset mapping and offsets are ignored.

Improved Tempo accuracy for MIDI clock.

Fixed Barberpole type in Phaser block broken.

Fixed no preset loading on startup if Ignore Redundant PC is on.

Fixed Scratchpad Cab #1 not loading automatically when doing an IR capture.

Various changes and fixes for FC controllers.

Awesome as always, Cliff and team!

A couple of trivial things I noticed:

(1) The mixer block has a bypass toggle as well as being able to set a bypass MIDI CC number, but it can't be bypassed. It couldn't be bypassed in the II either, and it doesn't really make sense to do that unless it also has a bypass level control to compensate for the signal boost when combining multiple channels. But strangely, you CAN bypass the multiplexer block (with the volume boost). Probably these blocks should have consistent behaviour, and no need for settings that can't be used.

(2) The crossover block doesn't have modifiers on the level and balance controls, and also doesn't have global settings (like were on the II) but I expect this is probably still a work in progress.

Wonderful! Thank you

Awesome! Thank you for adding the preset INC/DEC - I love that you went one step further and made it range-selectable and wrapping like the Eventide H9! You rock. Can't wait to mess with some of those new LFOs, too!
