FracTool - ultimate multitool for FAS devices

AlGrenadine

Axe-Master
FracTool 3.30 is available, here are the conversion fixes :

  • INPUT block level was always to -20 dB, it's now set to 0dB
  • INPUT block attack and releaserange changed between gen2 and 3, now taken into account
  • MULTICOMP block freq range for high band is now set to HIGH during conversion, keeping the correct XOver frequency
  • COMP threshold not converted correctly
  • AMP PA hardness was set to 0
  • AMP PT mismatch was set to -1
  • AMP Variac was set to 50% if not present in source preset (very old ones)
  • AMP AC Line Freq was set to 30 Hz (now defaults to 60)
  • SPKR compliance is now defaulting to 50% if not present in source preset
  • REVERB echo density range changed
  • REVERB stereo spread now defaults to 0%
  • CAB levels range changed, now taken into account
  • WAH bias now defaults to 5 if not present in source preset (very old ones)

Yes, i tried them : those are crazy old presets from early AxeFx II era and here is my conclusion :
The conversion goes well
They sound bad because the parameters have changed so much since AxeFx II firmware 2 or 3 from when they were made.
Even loading them on an AxeFx II now with Ares firmware would sound like this.
So forget them they are bad and old presets

EDIT : I've found few conversion issues again (which do not really affect your presets but may affect others).
For now i've fixed : (evolutive during the day)
  • INPUT block level was always to -20 dB, it's now set to 0dB
  • INPUT block attack and releaserange changed between gen2 and 3, now taken into account
  • MULTICOMP block freq range for high band is now set to HIGH during conversion, keeping the correct XOver frequency
  • COMP threshold not converted correctly
  • AMP PA hardness was set to 0
  • AMP PT mismatch was set to -1
  • AMP Variac was set to 50%
  • AMP AC Line Freq was set to 30 Hz (now defaults to 60)
  • SPKR compliance is now defaulting to 50% if not present in source preset
  • REVERB echo density range changed
  • REVERB stereo spread now defaults to 0%
  • CAB levels range changed, now taken into account
  • WAH bias now defaults to 5
Everything will be in next release (3.30), now waiting for @simeon bug reports to include more fixes

Congrats Alex for your continuous job for the community !
Just installing the latest with my new AFX3. Will use it for the presets from Leon, Burg etc. and mainly I think when need to "reset" amp with FW evolution, keeping some parameters values.
any recommendations by the way about these reset operations ?
thanks Alex

Only do it if strange sounds are produced, otherwise avoid it

hmm just to understand, you mean:
  • avoid to reset amp across FW update
  • or avoir using Fractool for reset operation?

sorry if it's stupid question .. ;)

The download link just delivered version 3.28 not 3.30. How do I get the latest?

EDIT: Ignore that, the crash report says version 3.28 but the FracTool UI says 3.30. Maybe a PLIST needs to be updated?

3.30 crashes when trying to export to CSV. I'm on Axe III 6.04.

Can't reproduce the crash, i need the preset, as usual... I think i'm gonna refuse every future report without a preset and exact reproduction scheme...

I'm seeing the same behavior as reported by @fractalz. Crashes for me when exporting to any file format. Reproduced using that ACDC preset from above as well as other presets.

MacOS Mojave 10.14.5 (18F132)
FracTool: 3.30 (Although crash logs still show 3.28 as previously reported)

Attaching crash logs. Looks like a divide by zero issue.

Thanks for taking a look at this. Appreciate all your hard work.
