Always do a full backup with Fractal-Bot before loading any new firmware so you can restore later


Firmware 12.05 for the Axe-Fx III has been released.

Click here to visit the forum download link. Below are the release notes.

FW 12.05 mostly rolls back the FC changes from 12.04, as some bugs were introduced.

If you are updating from FW 12.03 or earlier, 12.05 should not affect your FC in any way.

If you are updating from 12.04, your FC Layouts will be blank in 12.05. This is because 12.04 changed the way the FC is configured with “new features.” Because 12.05 does not have those new features, 12.04 FC data will not have “any place to go” since the new features are not there, resulting in blank Layouts. If you’ve backed up your data with 12.03, simply load the FC data from 12.03 into 12.05 and you’ll have your Layouts back.
