What is the Scene MIDI block

Available only on the Axe-Fx III.

It sends up to 8 CC or PC MIDI messages through the MIDI OUT port upon scene changes, over different MIDI channels. The MIDI messages can be different in each scene.

It must be added to the grid to use, but it does not have to be connected to the signal chain. The block can't be bypassed (but a scene can be configured to send no MIDI messages).

You can actually use the Scene MIDI block to send MIDI commands to the Axe-Fx III itself, by connecting MIDI OUT to MIDI IN.

More information in the Owner's Manual.

Other ways to transmit MIDI

The Axe-Fx III provides additional ways to transmit MIDI messages. You can have the III transmit a MIDI PC through MIDI OUT with each preset change automatically. MIDI functionality will be added to the Control Switches. Incoming MIDI can be routed through the MIDI THRU port.
