Last I knew there were no more than 24 hours in "today" .
I’ve been thinking about getting a small controller for my Axe-Fx II and pedals. I was thinking about the LF Mini or the Mastermind LT.I actually tried to buy liquid foot jr+. Emailed them maybe 5 times, not a single reply.
the worst thing is, they actually made great products, but the communication issue is so frustrating.
Still have my LF mini and if it had a couple more expression ports like Jr + would be a perfect midi controller.
Do you have an Axe-Fx II or III? The LF+ works the best with the II but is buggy with the III. I use my LF+ with my II XL+ and use my Mastermind GT 22 with my III and Helix.I’ve been thinking about getting a small controller for my Axe-Fx II and pedals.

I totally agree. If you want to see some of the things you can do with a LF+ and Axe-Fx II, check out my tutorial on the FAS Wiki. I use older firmware 5.12 and Editor 5.10 for my Axe-Fx II XL+.A II.
Appreciate the information. My biggest concern about the LF is all the reports of poor service and lack of support from FAMC.
Jeff posted pictures of the X-16 in early 2015. It was supposed to be wireless and have larger displays that you could add pictures and text to, so you could have a picture of the amp or pedal assigned to the foot switch. Jeff even mentioned that the X-Series would be released earlier this year but then disappeared again.The product is awesome, and had such potential. Who knows what the X series could have been (if it ever really existed).
At one point Jeff said he had 100 X-Series beta users and after testing made some changes and said they were ready to ship and then you can guess what happened again. I don't believe there were beta testers bc no info has been leaked about them and most touring musicians switched to the RJM Mastermind GT for better support. The X-Series were supposed to sell for around $800. They probably cost under $200 to make, so he could have made a nice profit because they would have been more advanced than the RJM Mastermind GT and FAS MFC-101 and FC's.I can believe it was hacked. Once. Maybe twice. But if it's still being hacked every time it goes down, he's not doing what's needed to protect it. And the whole "we're working through tickets and are almost caught up!" thing he posts every time seems like it's untrue, or he just has absolutely no ability to follow through on anything.
I also fully believe he had things going on in his life, including what we heard about his son. My heart goes out to him and I hope his son pulled through. But he's disappeared many times, and even when there's a legit reason, if he'd just communicate it people would be far more understanding.
I also believe that the x series was real, at least as a prototype. I seem to recall at one point that he said he'd done a full production run. That I doubt. That's a lot of up front money to shelve without delivering anything.
I do hope he'll open source it, but I have my doubts he will. I am a programmer, though I don't know what it's written in and I haven't done much with embedded systems. I'd certainly love to have a shot to try.
I'm just disappointed. It's such a good product, just ruined by the disappearing acts and constant excuses. At some point I'll probably switch to the FC series, though at this stage the LF is working. It just seems like eventually, it will need some update to keep working with the Axe, and he just won't be there.
I would like to speak to this. I've worked with several customers who were delighted with the FC after switching from LF. Perhaps the many benefits offset the few compromises. Perhaps you would consider rephrasing your assertion as, "you MAY be disappointed"If you're used to using a LF+, especially Set List and Song mode or being able to select the menu for Channels ABCD, you will be very disappointed in the FAS FC's.
I updated my post with better wording. I hope the FC updates come soon. I'll probably buy 4 of them bc I like having access to most of the blocks, channels and scenes in my presets.I would like to speak to this.

I like the Arduino idea.
Also let me say that BOTH of the features you're asking for ("Channels Smart Menu" and "Song/Set List") are on the roadmap for the FC.
