    That would exclude the possibility to use it for guitar and bass simultaneously.

    Granted, I could buy more units, and I probably would, if they were 1U. :)

    Will it be possible to use the loops for Pedals (Instrument Level) or are they line level only?

    Yes. The outputs have adjustable pads.

    sounds pretty instant to me. As others have said, no different than my Mesa or my Voodoo amps channel switching.

    Great question!

    And do we know yet if it's polyphonic?

    How works it with 4 cm? Is it noiseless as the FX8?

    Looks like it will fit nicely in my rack.
    One day. :D

    Congrats Fractal Audio!

    That is a good question. I asked something similar to this earlier as to why the AFX III does not have a remote wifi or bluetooth editing option. Cliff seems to be answering questions left and right on many other things but all I've heard is crickets on this one....

    Bluetooth support, apart from the hardware, which may or may not be trivial, also would require writing mobile apps, testing them, updating them, dealing with app stores/mobile OS updates. That in turn would require two new teams of developers. It may or may not be beneficial commercially, but regardless of that, its an additional endeavor, and I guess they have been rather busy without more challenges.

    Just a guess.

    It's worth noting that the product is 30+ days from shipping, and the Axe III forum already has 3 pages of threads. Mania.

    And I predict the waitlist will be populated for a good solid year...unless FAS has a the factories on war footing for this initial surge.

    I'd bet that the waitlist is how Cliff is judging demand. If that's true then by now every factory in Shenzen is probably working on Axe mainboards.

    I doubt that all the music gear in the world could possibly fill every factory in Shenzen with orders. :)

    It's just such a shame that so many of the threads are the same questions because people aren't actually reading the existing threads. Lol lots of clean up to do once things settle down.

    /sigh

    Here we go again. =)

    So when will the AxeFX IV come out!?!?!?!

    Sorry, couldn't resist. LOL

    Needless to say, since I just bought an XL+ in the last year, combined with the fact I have trigger finger in both hands and hope to have corrective surgery in March....I don't see buying a III any time in my near future. At some point, maybe, but it's just not in the cards at the moment.

    Congrats to FAS on the innovation. I look forward to the day I own one.

    I am happy as a clam with my new AX8. Just sayin'. But I understand the excitement. Maybe one day when I am rich.
