Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Notes


Added USA JP IIC+ Red amp model.

Fixed hold functions on page two of the Master Layout Menu for the FC-6.

Fixed FC Bank -> Inc/Dec function's upper limit from resetting to the maximum bank number on reboot or bank size change.

Fixed copy/paste of FC Layouts not setting Layout Link.
Fixed FC Layout Link for hold functions not surviving a reboot. Fixed wet data muting during channel change in Multitap block.


Fixed presets created with firmware prior to 3.00 defaulting Amp block EQ Off/On parameter to Off instead of On.


Fixed presets created with firmware prior to 3.00 not loading various parameters correctly. These parameters are primarily the Spread parameters in the Chorus, Flanger, Rotary and Reverb blocks, among others.


Completely new Amp block cathode follower algorithm yielding more accurate results. The “Ideal”cathode follower type is no longer supported as it is incompatible and has been removed from the GUI. The Cathode Follower Time and Ratio parameters have also been removed as they are no longer applicable. A “Grid Clipping” parameter has been added which allows the user to adjust the grid clippingin the cathode follower. Lower values reflect the softer response of classic British and American tubes like Mullard, Sylvania and RCA. Higher values simulate the response of modern Chinese and Russian tubes with more abrupt clipping.
