How about making a page just for original controls? It doesn't even have to be the main page.but then each type would have different controls on different pages, it wouldn't be consistent. that'd probably another wish list thread "make all types put the parameters on the same pages."
Here is my pre-FX-8 board: TC Electronic Ploytune, CAE Wah, Keeley Compressor, Fuzz Face, Ibanez TS808, Vox Satchurator, Boss Super Shifter PS-5, Hardwire TR-7 Tremolo, MXR Micro Flanger, MXR EVH Phaser 90, Visual Sound Liquid Chorus, MXR Carbon Copy, TC Electronic Flashback Delay, Whirlwind boost.Good to know - thanks - what pedals have you replaced with the FX8?
Here in this forum you can't disagree with any wishes or changes because you'll be accused of being a fan boy. That's real.Here in this forum you can't complain or see anything wrong with FAS product because the fan boys come with their guns shooting everything.
I totally get what you're saying and I definitely agree with you. Having said that, by pointing out the Tube Screamer you actually highlighted the value of those 17 other parameters. As much as everyone loves the TS, I would bet that the #1 complaint is the loss of low end which you can recover with the "advanced" parameters. Think about the sheer number of TS/clones/modded pedals that have been churned over the years on The Gear Page because everyone was looking for that magical TS that didn't suck the low end.As an example, a Tube Screamer has 3 knobs. It's as basic as they come. The overdrive pedal on the FX8 upon which this modeled has 17 different adjustable parameters in the edit menu! I think one of the top things on my wish list would be for Fractal to highlight those options in the edit menu which are most crucial for basic control (as if you had the actual pedal in front of you) and leave the other 80% meant for uber-fine adjustments to those who actually know how to use them...like professional musicians, recording engineers and people a lot smarter than me. :lol
Ditto!One thing that would be *really* useful if there were a way to have some help that connected the dots with regards to interaction of parameters. This would be pretty awkward to implement on the FX8 (or Axe-FX) directly due to the limited screen. But if the editor(s) were to convey the wisdom that Cliff, the Wiki, Chris's Tutorial site, and the forum provide it would make for a much easier experience. Imagine if you select a knob in the editor and some tips appeared that said "Turn this knob will do blah and is highly impacted by this other knob". Also, a series of "how to" type things structured in the editor would be very useful. Cliff and others have posted so many useful things over the years but that information can totally get lost or is difficult to discover because you don't know the magic words to search for and often times by the time you get an answer that solves your problem on a forum you have totally lost the moment.
The only control that needs to be added is self-restraint.
Seriously, take a Drive block. You want more or less gain? Adjust the Drive control. You want it brighter? Adjust Tone. You want it louder? Adjust Level.
That covers the majority of the drive pedals out there.
Those controls are already present on the first page of the Drive block. And they operate just like on the original pedal (in G3 models).
Just ignore that Mix (and Balance on the Axe-Fx) also exist on that page, and you're there.
Also, creating a visual copy of the original pedal would only help those who own or have used that particular pedal.
Thanks Yek and Fremen! However, when I link the volume knob to the sequencer, I get the following: Min, Max, Start, Mid, End, Slope, Scale, Offset, Damping, Off Value.Sequencer:
Rate: 11.08, 16 stages.
Sequences: 100 - 25 - 82 - 25 - 92 - 25 - 82 - 25 - 100 - 25 - 82 - 25 - 92 - 25 - 82 - 25 (rest: 0).
Attach Run to Envelope.
-100, 1.00, 1.00, 1.00.
Sequencer & envelope parameters are in Setup: Controllers menu.Thanks Yek and Fremen! However, when I link the volume knob to the sequencer, I get the following: Min, Max, Start, Mid, End, Slope, Scale, Offset, Damping, Off Value.
I don't have Rate, Stages, or the ability to type the Sequences for each of the 16 Stages.
Any Advice on how to correct for this?
Where you ever able to re-create "Bigger than my body" Adrenaline III sound?What would be great for someone like me is a tutorial/explanation how all the different knobs/parameters affect the tone. I've been trying to dial in the tremolo effect for Boulevard of Broken Dreams (easy on the POD) but I can't seem to get it right on Fx8 as I'm guessing how the parameters interact with each other.
Also, I've tried to play with the pitchshifter block to get the Adrenaline III sound that John Mayer uses on Bigger Than My Body. I've been reading how people were able to get it on the Axe Fx by using multiple effects since the pitchshifter isn't polyphonic.
Are there any books out there that explain how effects and their parameters work?
