Tempo averaging

  • Tempo averaging has been added in firmware 3.02. Improved in 10.11.

Tempo LED

  • Cliff: "The tempo LED is handled by a low-priority thread so it isn't rock solid and the higher the CPU usage the less solid it will be. The metronome, however, is perfectly accurate." Source

Auto-activating a Delay

  • When the parameter Auto Delay in the Tempo menu is set to “ON,” any delay blocks that are bypassed will become active whenever a tempo is tapped in. This allows you to set the tempo and un-bypass your delay block(s) from a single footswitch.


  • The Axe-Fx II can opeate as a metronome via the Tempo menu (firmware 6 and later).
  • The metronome plays through Output 1.
  • You can start the metronome with an IA switch (CC is listed in the I/O menu).
