    NAMM is coming up, any news on updates?

    I feel like we've kinda been forgotten about, I love my AA3 but wishing we had more amps/drives/effects/etc. Are there any plans to continue to support this or is it now finished?

    Hi guys
    My current number one feature is the ability to have effects loop after the CAB section. This might sound weird, but I've added Boss SY 300 to my rig and I'd like that to run without CAB simulation. I still want to have XLR out from my rig to make it easier for FOH connectivity. Ability to have reverb and delay after loop would be a bonus. I understand that this would leave me without the ability to have CAB simulation only on one of the outputs. Please do that form me :)

    Put the AA in the loop of the SY and use the outs of the SY. You'll need a 1/4 to XLR adapter which will run you like $20. You'll be able to get that setup going pretty much immediately versus waiting for a FW update. I did this exact thing and and just crossfaded between the SY tones and AA guitar tones using expression pedal. Worked great.

    Appreciate the update Jace. I'm really happy with the AFB and if updates are coming in terms of features, just keep the A/B switching quick. The one "feature" I don't like on my AX8 is the extreme delay when changing patches. The updates are nice but never at the price of usability. K.I.S.S. method applies here.
    If anything, I would like to see a smaller, cheaper priced Neo powered FRFR speaker get announced. Perhaps a wedge with a 10 inch coax speaker selling for less than say a QSC K10?
    Also, a distribution channel into Canada for Atomic Amp products?
    That would be great. I know that when I lent out my AFB to my buddy as an alternative to his FAX Axe FX Ultra, he ended up getting one.
    Here's wishing that word of mouth makes Atomic a more familliar name around here.

    Why not run the guitar into the SY, out the THRU to the AA, and then run two stereo pairs to the board? Not super familiar with this unit, looks interesting. BOSS is starting to step their game up a bit... :)

    That delay... is what kept me away from the Fractal stuff. And BIAS. And I don't have Kemper money...

    I gotta say, a distro to Canada would be nice... maybe give the guys at Cosmo or Long & McQuaid a call and see if you can strike a deal. ALTHOUGH, I gotta say I was crazy impressed with how fast y'all shipped the unit to me from where ever in Idaho you are... :)

    I have it on good authority that they are introducing extra pedal attachments to the AA3, that can be attached via velcro to the side. This will essentially turn your AA3 into an AA4...or even AA5 if you buy 2.

    Might be neat. Where would the I/O be? MIDI (daisy chaned?)? USB? The AA USB is so slow.... If it hoses the FX Loop I would have to skip it, I already gave up the analog exp pedal input so I could do 4CM.

    You believed me? The "good authority" was the voices in my head.

    OF didn't get it... It is refreshing to think that I can still be naively hopeful at this point in life. I thought life had just bashed all of it out of me. Thanks! :D

    If it's any consolation I assumed he was making some joke about being able to "update" feature by...adding additional third part stompboxes to your Amplifire board.
