  • FM3: 1 block
  • Axe-Fx II: no

Channels or X/Y switching

  • Axe-Fx III and FM3: no
  • FX8: X/Y


The block lets you send up to 8 CC or PC MIDI messages through the MIDI OUT port upon scene changes, through different MIDI channels if needed. The MIDI messages can vary per scene.

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

Tip: you can use the Scene MIDI block to send MIDI commands to the device itself, by connecting MIDI OUT to MIDI IN.

(Axe-Fx III) "The MIDI block only sends data out the MIDI Out DIN jack. It does NOT send to the USB. The purpose of the MIDI block is to control other equipment in you rack via standard MIDI." source
