Al, now when I have had good results with wireless switching and tweaking I have been thinking about bluetooth foot controller.
Is it possible to connect bluetooth foot controller into FracPad and then connect FracPad into Axe Fx with bluetooth also?
Maybe that midimitrr would link them all, or so... any bluetooth specialists here?

Positive Grid makes solid looking BT pedals: https://www.positivegrid.com/bt4/
And then there is that IK multimedia, not so solid one: http://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/irigblueboard/

With those you could get very light rig and also great for home playing when you don´t have so much room for the pedalboard.
Like mine that is one piece plate with Rocktron All Access, 2 EB exp pedals and wah... Not so much sitting next to it :)

This guy says that Positive Grid can do almost everything with midi:

If you have 2 bt interfaces you'd need a software midi merger and switcher, idk if it exists

FracPad 1.01 has been released ! :)

- Fixes empty preset names edition
- Q6 compatibility
- Adds clear preset function
- Adds Save to function
- Recalls default parameter value on double clicks on sliders too
- Adds parameters informations : wiki direct link
- Displays (optionnally) the original value of each parameter, with ability to recall this original value
- Should work even if MFC ECHO TO MIDI OUT is set to ON (MIDI THRU on AxeFx not XL/XL+). Note even if it works it's totally unadvised to let it to ON, as it slows down everything a lot...
- Automatic Tuner function detection : if you engage the tuner from a foot switch or frontpanel, FracPad will display the tuner window
- EQ frequencies are correctly displayed

Android customers will receive an update link very soon, iOS update will be notified when Apple will have reviewed the app ;)

Finally got a chance to try this with my AX8. So good. Beautiful interface. And I was not expecting the really deep editing capability like for instance Scene Controllers. You really knocked it out of the park with this one. I can just bring my iPhone with me to gigs now and be rest assured knowing I have complete editing control at my fingertips. Thanks again.

Mysteriously, I have a USB OTG adapter on the way to me from Amazon. I don't remember ordering it. But maybe I did. I don't have any use for such a thing.

Well I guess this means I have to get FracPad when the adapter arrives. :)

Hi AlGrenadine ,I just updated and the fracpad stopped recognizing my Ax fx Mark2 using an ipad 4 with an alesis idock2 or irigmidi, the midi ports appear in the windows midi in and midi out but when I select them they remain for a brief moment and then disappear as If Axe fx was not connected, I tried to use the midi bridge app to see if anything changed and nothing, restart the apps and the ipad without success

Hi,
Thanks for the feedback, i'll try to fix that asap.

Edit: found the problem, unfortunately Apple takes forever to review an app, i'm gonna ask a special review
