Many thanks to the FA team for FW 6.00 ... so fast ... it's always wonderful to use your products ...
And many ,many thanks for the new "Manual" controllers ...

Love your work ...


6.00
Firmware 6.00 introduces the PERFORM tabs found on the HOME screen of the Axe-Fx III. There are two
PERFORM tabs: Per-Preset and Global. The PERFORM tabs can be configured with up to 10 userselected controls from any of the blocks found in the current preset (including CONTROLLERS and
GLOBAL). Configuration of the PERFORM tabs is done via Axe-Edit III. Allowable controls include rotary
knobs, push-buttons, drop-downs, and toggle controls (e.g., on/off controls).
The "Perform-PP" controls are stored per-preset. Adding or removing a control from "PerformPP" will change the EDIT state of the preset.
The "Perform-Gbl" controls are stored in the Global Settings. Adding or removing a control from
"Perform-Gbl" is automatically saved to the Global Settings.
Performance controls are added via the editor from a block's parameter view. The editor's
selected parameter control is assigned to the desired Performance tab through a popup menu or
a hot-key combination. [Please note the "Edit Modifier..." popup menu item for modifiable
parameters. Modifiable parameters can quickly jump to the "Edit Modifier" dialog by pressing
the hotkey 'M'.]
Hotkey assignments for Perform controls:
  • Per-Preset Add: SHIFT + '1' through '0', where '0' is the tenth control on the tab.
  • Per-Preset Remove: SHIFT + ALT + '1' through '0', where '0' is the tenth control on the tab.
  • Global Add:
  • Mac: COMMAND + F1 through F10.
  • Windows: CTRL + F1 through F10.
  • Global Remove:
  • Mac: COMMAND + SHFIT + F1 through F10.
  • Windows: CTRL + SHIFT + F1 through F10.
The editor's Perform view is accessed via the "Perform" button or the Tools / Performance menu.
From this view, Per-Preset Performance controls can be imported and/or exported using the
"Block Library" control. Additionally, the view's "Per-Preset" and "Global" tabs allow label editing
for controls already assigned to the "Perfrom-PP" and "Perform-Gbl" tabs.
Changed Cabinet, IR Player and Tone Match block IR windowing so that window length is proportional to
IR length (rather than a constant window length).
Doubled length of IR Capture Utility sweep. This improves SNR in challenging environments, i.e. a large,
noisy room when capturing “far-field” IRs. The time between sweeps has also been increased to allow
the room reverberation to decay sufficiently before starting the next sweep.
Improved Amp block power amp modeling.
Added five “Manual” controllers to Controllers menu. These can be used as modifiers for real-time
manipulation of parameters from the front panel.
Combined LFO 1 and LFO 2 menus into a single menu.
Fixed Ring Mod block left/right slightly unbalanced.
Fixed Looper allows playback even if no loop exists causing noise.
FC: Further fixes for startup timing issues.
FC: Fixed Inc/Dec functions' upper limits defaulting to zero.
FC: Fixed learning of FC external pedals and switches in MIDI/Remote.
FC: Fixed external switch polarity not showing correctly on the FC Controllers Remote page.

Thank you guys for all the hard work and squishing bugs SOOOOOOOO quickly!!

Most other companies would take weeks and months to fix them, and some even downright ignore them :/ FAS is a diamond indeed

Trying to add global perform functions and the cntrl+F1...F10 seems to be not working. When I hit cntrl+F2 it goes to scene name. I added them in the normal perform tab on one preset but was waiting until the update to do the globals. I will check my windows 10 machine again but tried a few times adding under Perform Global with Cntrl+FX. I also went to the previous preset and tried to remove the pre preset items and could not. I changed presets and tried again. I will keep checking to see if I was doing something wrong.

Looks like not yet... @Michael Pickens is prolly putting the finishing touches on it now.
A full Axe-Edit release is a day or two away which will include a new Performance screen to allow for drag-and-drop Perform control assignment and support for the Manual Modifiers.

For now, please use the below beta version which provides basic Performance Control support:

OSX:
www.fractalaudio.com/downloads/Axe-Edit-III/Axe-Edit-III-OSX-v1p01p09-b2.dmg

Windows:
www.fractalaudio.com/downloads/Axe-Edit-III/Axe-Edit-III-Win-v1p01p09-b2.exe

Thanks!

Curious how one might use the following:
Added five “Manual” controllers to Controllers menu. These can be used as modifiers for real-time
manipulation of parameters from the front panel.

Got it, thanks! I remember I saw the links in the 6.00 Beta thread, but I could be wrong :)

Manual Controllers allow you to use a modifier to control various parameters without needing an expression pedal, MIDI source, or other controller. You assign the Manual knob as desired parameter(s) and then operate with from the Controllers menu, or from the new Perform pages! This brings the best of pedalboard-style knob tweaking possibilities right to your front panel.

A simple example might be feedback+motor speed on one knob. In complex creations, you can do macro-controls. For example, the "Vintage Vinyl ABCD" preset, manual knobs were used across a range of modifiers for easy access to 33-45-78, Crackle, Hum, and Warp controls.
