AxeFX II strange interaction with MFC (solved)

Hi,

I Posted this question in the MFC area but got no reply - search got nothing relevant either.

I am running FW 2.17 in my MFC and 11.3 in my Axefx II. When I power up, none of the
switches respond until I change patches once. Then everything works fine. The reveal and bank up/down switches seem to work but no other functions respond until I change the preset.

is this normal behavior?

Thanks,

Brett

Yes I'm running FW2.18 on the MFC and 11.03 on my Axe II. I power everything up and always have to Change the Preset to make it work.

I figured it out. I was powering up the MFC first then turning on the Axe. If I turn on the Axe first then plug in the MFC it works perfectly.

If the Axe-Fx II is not powered on first this will happen. Selecting any preset on the MFC will reset the state machine.

Mine does this as well.

Makes sense, as I always have my powered midi cable plugged in and switch everything on. No biggie and not a problem to switch something quick to get it to register.

When I first got my A2 this was not a problem FW 9.4 or thereabouts. Since updating to FW10.1 and now 11.3 I have this problem also. It's a bit of a pain, I sometimes get to the first solo at a gig and have to quickly double shift.

I have had this issue only since I upgraded tp FW 11.0. This is clearly a glitch. I am sure Cliff will address downstream.
