    Cliff talked a while back ago about creating a preset / amp level matching algorithm? It's hard to do it at apartment volume and not a whole lot of time to tweak at sound check!

    This was something that Cliff was talking about? Was it a long time ago? Did he say Soon ?

    The upcoming firmware has ITU-R loudness meters in the Utility menu that can be used to help set patch volumes. For convenience the Amp block level control is in that page so you can adjust the preset volume without leaving the page.

    ITU-R is a standard for loudness measurement. Broadcasters use it to monitor the apparent loudness of program material and comply with regulations, i.e. making sure commercials aren't louder than the programming. The measurement includes a simple head model and hearing perception model to give a fairly accurate indication of relative volume.

    This is awesome, and I expect it will be very useful.

    This is just ridiculous. I've been using a plugin called K-Meter in my DAW to do it, and I thought I was pretty clever.

    Now this functionality will be built in to the Axe-FX? I shake my head in wonderment… there is no “off” position on the genius switch. Thanks again, Cliff.

    This will be cool.

    I've been using loudness meters in Pro Tools to level presets with great success.

    Would it be possible to make Vol Inc and Vol Dec change Amp Level (instead of Main)?
    This would combine well with the new feature. And solve a few issues as well: Vol Inc/Dec applying to current scene only and not changing FXL/Out 2.
