About the Metronome

The Metronome is not an effect block. It’s part of the Tempo control.

Start and stop

Start the metronome by pressing a switch, assigned to the Metronome's MIDI CC, or use the Tempo menu on the hardware.

If the metronome starts automatically and cannot be stopped, it's probably triggered by a MIDI CC transmitted by your DAW. Disable this in your DAW, or set the Metronome's MIDI CC to NONE in the I/O menu.


On the Axe-Fx II and AX8 the metronome plays through Output 1 only.

The Axe-Fx III and FM3 let you set the level for Output 1, Output 2 and USB/Digital separately.
