    Another update? Sure!

    I've started using global blocks in my Axe-Fx III pretty heavily. I run a "kitchen sink" effects setup around different AMP/CAB combinations. This has been helpful for trying out different AMP/CAB pairs from Austin Buddy's naked amps pack in live situations. I get the new AMP/CAB sounds, but all my effects are the same so I'm not totally lost, live.

    My kitchen sink setup with globals looks like this:

    All those blocks with aquablue dots on them are global blocks -- if I change that block in this preset, the changes are reflected across every preset that also uses this global block in it.

    The cool thing about having this ultra-consistent layout in use on my gigging presets is I can (finally!) name the channels on my various effects blocks as they're always the same settings from preset to preset! Fantastic, right?

    Here's what my GT/22 setup looks like now:

    Screen Shot 2019-09-14 at 8.38.04 PM.png

    The really big difference is that my channels are NAMED! Hooray! When I hold down on an effects IA to change the channel this is what I see:

    Screen Shot 2019-09-14 at 8.38.11 PM.png
    Each channel gets friendly name like "Klon" or "Kot" or "TS Light" which makes selecting what I want so much easier. I don't have to remember what Channel 1 was setup to be -- I named it! Now I know!

    For my non-kitchen sink presets, I'll probably put togehter some generic pages that don't have the channels named. Basically, duplicate my first two pages but without the names, just because I can and I have all that page space in the GT/22. Why not, right?

    This has been one of the biggest quality of life improvements in my gigging setup in a long time.

    You can get my latest GT/22 setup here: http://j.mp/2FlXcs3 -- that's current as of Jan 2, 2020 and was made with firmware 4.4.1.

    In addition to the named channels, you'll see a few other tweaks. There's a page specifically designed for working with Austin Buddy's Naked Amps pack -- it has switches on it that can be used to turn on/off settings on the AMP block as well as change the AMP and CAB block channels for both (AMP|CAB)[1,2] blocks. You'll need to map some midi on the III for this page to work 100%.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks Ian! Weirdly your images are not showing up on my Mac (I haven't tried a PC with IE yet). I can see the images from your first post in this thread but not the latest post.

    They were embedded using URLs from the Fractal forum -- I just replaced them with images uploaded to this forum software. Can you see them now?
