1.10.01

Current Axe-Fx III Firmware Version: 17.00

  • Added "Max. Loop Time" to the LOOPER.
  • Added "Level" and "Pan" controls to the IR PLAYER when in Parallel mode.
  • Corrected an issue in the Cab and IR Player blocks in which the IRs were displaying the wrong color. UltraRes IRs now show in their correct purple color state.
  • Corrected the updating of the Cab bank IR names after executing a Manage Cabs operation.
  • Corrected the communication slowdown that was introduced in version 1.10.0.

1.10.00

  • Support for firmware 17.00
    • Updated the IR Capture view and the CAB and IR PLAYER blocks to support FullRes(tm)
    • Updated DRIVE layouts for "Valve Screamer VS9" and "Maxoff 808".
    • Added "FAS Buttery" to the AMP layouts
  • The Manage Presets and Manage Cabs dialogs have been combined into one tabbed dialog. The existing shortcuts and top-level Tools menu items will launch the Manage dialog with the respective tab selected. The Axe-Fx III mark II will show an additional tab for the FullRes bank when running firmware 17.
  • Reordered the items in the TOOLS menu.
  • Updated the internal Fractal-Bot to version 3.0.10, which adds support for FullRes(tm) IRs.
  • Corrected a bug in the Library's "Save" routine in which the latest firmware version was not being updated in the currently selected Library entry.
  • Corrected an issue in the Leveling Panel in which the Modifier state of the Out 1 and 2 levels were not being displayed.
  • Corrected the display of the ToneMatch block's slot. It was displaying as a zero-based index instead of a one-based index.
  • Added FM9 preset import functionality. Axe-Change now includes searching the FM9 presets by selecting "FM9" from the device dropdown.
  • Added "All Scenes" submenu to the Channel control's context menu.
  • Added Preset+Cab Bundle. A Preset+Cab Bundle contains one preset plus any User Cab Impulse Responses (IRs) used by that preset. Bundles make it easier to share sounds and are easy to export and import. The Preset+Cab Bundle functionality requires firmware 17 or greater.
    • To export a Bundle, use the Preset / "Export Preset-Cab Bundle" menu. This will display the "Export Preset+Cab Bundle" dialog. IRs that this preset refers to but does not use are excluded but can be included manually by checking them. Examples include IRs that are muted or channels that are not referred to by any scene. Factory cabs cannot be exported/checked.
    • To import a bundle, use the Presets / "Import Preset" menu or drag-and-drop a bundle file onto the editor's main Preset display. This will display the "Import Preset+Cab Bundle" dialog. This dialog unpacks a Preset-Cab Bundle and saves it ready-for-use to your Axe-Fx III. A Preset+Cab Bundle contains one preset plus all of the User Cab impulse Response (IRs) it requires. To proceed, you must select a location to save each of the items within the Bundle. The preset will be updated automatically to refer to the location(s) you selected for the IRs.

1.09.02

Current Axe-Fx III Firmware Version: 16.04

  • Corrected the flashing of the Picker window for the Library control (formerly Block Library).

  • Corrected the "Set All" feature to accept floating point values in the Controllers Sequencer, Scene Ctrl 1+2, and Scene Ctrl 3+4 pages.
  • Exporting a Tone Match to a User Cab location now refreshes the User Cab names.

1.09.01

Current Axe-Fx III Firmware Version: 16.04

  • Support for firmware 16.04
    • Added "Edit on Scn Change" to SETUP view. This corresponds to the hardware's "Indicate Edited on Scene Change" parameter found on the Config tab of Global Settings.
    • Updated the SEQUENCER layout.
  • Added "Preset and Scenes List..." to the Tools / "Export as Text" sub-menu. This command will load each preset of the Axe-Fx III creating a list of all non-empty presets and their scene names. Unnamed scenes are not included in the list. The final list will be exported to text file.

1.09.00

Current Axe-Fx III Firmware Version: 16.03

  • Support for firmware 16.03
    • Complete redesign of AMP block layout. This includes the addition of new pages and a headroom gain meter on the Ideal page.
    • Added Compander to COMPRESSOR and DELAY layouts.
  • Added "Zero All" to GEQ layout.

  • Corrected GAIN meter for COMPRESSOR Studio types.
  • Fixed a bug regarding importing FM3 presets with Phaser blocks into the Axe-Fx.
  • Added editor name to the "Preset Leveling" window.
  • Added "Copy to End" to the Scene Mgr's dropdown menu. This will copy the current scene to all of the scenes that follow. For example, selecting "Copy to End" from Scene 3 will copy Scene 3 to Scenes 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.
  • Added "Copy >>" and "Copy <<" buttons to the Perform view which copy all the Per-Preset controls to the Global controls and vice-versa.
  • Added "Clear Per-Preset" and "Clear Global" buttons to the Perform view which clear all the controls from the Per-Preset or Global section.
  • Added a "Global Settings" section to the Preferences which displays the OS-specific directory where the settings files are stored.
  • Modifications to allow the window to be dragged to any direction for external monitor use.
  • Added "Show Folder" menu item to the Perform View's Per-Preset Performance Controls menu.
  • Added "Copy to End" to the Copy submenu of the Scenes dropdown menu. This will copy the current scene to all of the scenes that follow. For example, selecting "Copy to End" from Scene 3 will copy Scene 3 to Scenes 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.
  • Modified Manage Cabs and Manage Presets to retain the currently assigned color when renaming items.
  • Renamed "Block Library" to "Library".
  • Added "Refresh Library" command to the Library dropdown menu, top-level Block menu, grid context menu, and Perform View dropdown menu.

    • The "Library: Save" and "Library: Save As" dialog provide the option of saving as an "entire block" or as the "current channel".
    • "Save entire block" will save a library entry as an entire block of all of its channels and modifiers. This is the "old" or "legacy" method. The icon of a quartered square with 4 colored sections denotes an entry saved as an entire block (all channels). Loading a block entry will overwrite all channels in the selected block.
    • "Save only current channel" will save a library entry containing only the currently selected channel. No modifiers will be saved. The icon of a quartered square with 1 central overlapping colored section denotes an entry saved as a single channel. Loading a channel entry will overwrite only the currently selected channel. Loading a channel entry into an empty grid space will insert a new block and load the entry into CHANNEL A.

  • Corrected the Manage-Presets "FC Banks" button - it now correctly shows the presets in virtual banks.
  • Added an "All Blocks" sub-menu to each of the Scene context menus (the small arrow to the right of the scene number button) in the Scene Mgr view. This menu will set the channel or the bypass state of every block in the scene.
  • In the FC Controllers LAYOUT, changed the menu item wording from "Reset Layout" and "Reset All Layouts" to "Clear Layout" and "Clear All Layouts" to denote that this clears (erases) the defined switches and does not reset the layout(s) to factory defaults.
  • The cabinet picker window, as displayed by the IR Capture view's "Save Cab to Axe-Fx" button, will disable the SAVE button until an item is selected in the list. This prevents Factory 1 / Slot 1 from being overwritten.

    • On Windows, if you have more than one Axe-Fx III connected and powered on but the "Available Devices" dialog is not shown when the editor is launched, please check the "FASUSBAudio Control Panel" applet in the System Tray. If the applet's Status tab does not show a dropdown in the "USB Audio Device", then the USB driver has not loaded both devices. Please disconnect and reconnect one of the device's USB cables until both devices are shown in the applet. If the applet does not "see" the devices then the editor will not see them either.
  • Modified the Block Library's "Save" and "Save As" functionality to display a prompt to overwrite an existing block if the entered name matches an existing block library entry.
