Cab-Lab 3 Compatible with Axe-Fx III?

Rex

Legend!
Are you guys saying it's fully compatible with the III?
I downloaded it from my account and can't get the AXEIII stock cabs into it.
Cab-Lab isn’t for getting IRs out of the Axe-Fx. It”s for putting IRs into the Axe-Fx. ;)

Has anyone with CL3.4 and an Axe 3 gotten the IR capture to work? I've tried both on Win10 and Mac and neither one actually records the IR. It plays the capture sounds and you see the waveform in the IR capture window, but when you save the IR, the IR is silent. I made a video of the behavior:


For reference, recording IRs directly on the Axe3 works great. Sadly, you can't output as .IR files, though, so I have to have Cab Lab working to actually create UltraRes mixes of my cabs.

So, I heard back from Matt about my IR Capture issue, and it may be related to a different issue they discovered when trying to reproduce my problem. Hopefully that means a fix is in the pipeline soon.

Just checked and I've got the same issue exporting as IR files. Works great sending them straight to the III though

In case anyone else has tried it, the newest version that dropped today, 3.4.1, does NOT fix the IR Capture issue with the Axe 3. Hopefully that issue will be resolved soon.

Is the "Live Mode" working with your Axe-FX III?

I can't make it work.

I can hear the mix for a fraction of a second when I press the "LIVE MODE" button, and then silence.
That might be related to the IR Capture bug. It seems like there are some issues that haven't been worked out yet in the current version. I've been able to do one IR capture and with the Axe 3 and then all subsequent captures are silent, sometimes after multiple reboots / reinstalls, which is similar to what you describe in Live Mode.

We'll have to sit tight till Fractal works out the issues.

Fairly new to FXIII. I'm learning quickly though. Now I'm getting myself into the IR realm. Actually bought the stand alone and Plugin bundle version of CAB LAB 3. Spent 3 hours today getting to know interface and get LIVE MODE to work....ehhh no dice. I have UA interface and tried both UA and FXIII as interfaces. I get the test tone to work but everything goes silent when LIVE MODE button is pressed. I am NOT connected to USB. I will try this next as this seems to be the popular method. Also getting to know all the usual suspects on 'good' IR's. Think I'll try the Fractal stuff next. I have purchased a few OH and looked at a few others. Weird,....Austin Buddy's site is down? as of 3-1-20 ?
Here's my question--
Anyone have success communicating with CAB LAB and FX Edit with audio connections? Using LIVE MODE ? Should work... ?
