    N.b. though I was on FW 1.18 for the majority of this class, the presets were exported on FW 2.04 and will load as empty if you are not updated.

    Another note: I've already gotten questions asking about techniques I'm using in later sections that I explain in detail in earlier sections. I totally get the desire to want to skip right to what you most want to learn about, but I did design the class to be a progression that builds, and I truly do think even more advanced users will get a lot out of the early sections.


    I have lost count of the messages asking when this was coming, and now I am thrilled to announce the latest installment in my Master Class Series, the Complete Axe-Fx III Master Class!



    In twelve hours of studio instruction, we'll go deep into the mind of the machine, recreating classic sounds, sculpting new tones, building presets, and learning how to dial in effects quickly and with confidence. Throughout the class, I'll be sharing some of the tips and tricks I've developed over years of working in the studio and onstage with bands like Dream Theater, Journey, Maroon 5, Avenged Sevenfold, and dozens of others who rely on the Axe-Fx for their tone. The $120 studio pass grants access to the complete course including all lesson modules, content on the new FC series of foot controllers, and all the presets created during the class.

    Purchasing the class will give you direct access to all of the class sections at any time, anywhere, forever. New sections will become available when they are added (FC series, etc.).

    The FAQ mentions that there is a cost;

    “Does this course include lessons on programming and using the FC-12 and FC-6?
    The course will feature the upcoming FC series of foot controllers. When new unit features become available, the original class purchase will grant you access to all additional Axe-Fx III lessons when they are added.”

    By one on one, do you mean a live interactive lesson with each student or more like a youtube training video with one on one followup if needed.

    A really good idea. Even after years of using Fractal gear most of us haven't even used 50% of the things you can do with these units. I highly recommend every Axe-Fx III owner to seriously think about taking this course.

    Don't miss this guys! Invaluable is the word that comes to mind.

    Cooper is of course an expert with the box but moreover his classes have been informative to the beginner as well as advanced users. His teaching style, delivery, and preparation are absolutely stellar.

    Seriously, don't miss this!
