    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Notes

    2.04

    Added “Tube Compressor” type to Compressor block. This type is based on classic tube compressors like the Altec Lansing 436C. Since this type uses “variable mu” processing it may add subtle, and possibly desirable, distortion to the audio.

    Added “FF Comb” and “FB Comb” types to Filter block. FF Comb is a feed-forward comb filter and FB Comb is a feedback comb filter. Delay Time controls the order of the comb filters, higher values result in more closely spaced notches and vice-versa. Depth controls the intensity of the filter, higher values result in deeper notches/peaks and vice-versa.

    Added Comb Filter Type parameter to Multidelay block. The names of the parameters in the block have been changed from “Resonator” to “Comb Filter”.

    Added clock sync checking in I/O menu. If the user selects one of the digital input sources (SPDIF or AES) as the clock source and there is no valid input the menu will indicate no clock source.

    Changed Cabinet block Room Size display to meters for clarity.

    Fixed Cabinet block does not update if a newly captured IR is saved to an IR location in use.

    Fixed Cabinet block “AIR” mixing is done before level normalization.

    Fixed USB 5/6 Input Level affects SPDIF/AES input level.

    Fixed setting size very low on room types in Reverb block can cause crash.

    Make sure to try the new Tube Compressor. It's really something. PRE and POST.

    Example settings (as a PRE effect): Ratio 2.25, Release 20, 1.80 makeup gain.

    And POST not that different: Ratio 2.00, Release 20, 2.25 makeup gain.

    Here's some tube compression background information.

    Putting the new compressor at the end of the chain really adds something nice! I haven't figured out what to do with the new filter types yet? any suggestions?

    Can we get a little clarification on this one.....the Multidelay block no longer exists on the III...and I can't find these parameters on the front panel looking in the Multitap delay, Plex Delay or Ten Tap delay blocks....

    Officially the III has the Multitap Delay block. It's often also referred to as the Multi Delay or Multidelay.

    The renamed parameters are found in some types of the Multitap Delay.
