    Maybe he meant a metric week?

    Emphasising that I love my AA3 and that their customer support was very good, saying that it was less than a week away was from a communication strategy point of view not their best move ever...

    I spoke to Tom at NAMM and he said it was a few days out, I'm assuming after the show.

    Take it easy guys. It's probably just the current 1-year old beta that will be made the official software :D

    Tom said here when announcing the AFB FW that AA FW was “less than a week” away. That was a week plus one day and counting.

    They're definitely late but I think it would have been stupid to release new FW Friday-Sunday. That's the worst time to do it. It's asking for headaches. The employee who said a week should have been less specific unless it was guaranteed. Underpromise and overdeliver. Fingers crossed for Monday.

    Right, I wasn't trying to defend was just noting to the ether that dude was probably talking to the ether. I'm guessing the ether really would like to just get some shut eye at this point...

    They didn't hit their hoped for pre-NAMM release. I wouldnt want firmware that was finalized at NAMM (or worse, on the flight back from NAMM to be the release candidate...

    your getting 2 new reverbs... And minor tweaks. Essentially the Firebox update.Not impressive at all. Because so many of us needed additional reverbs (sarcasm)

    Actually, reverb was on my list. But then again, so was pitch shifting and reverse delay. No matter, I love my unit either way. Unless I start making "The Big Bucks (tm)" with the band, I'm keeping it.

    Everyone,
    The firmware update is finished.
    The delay in release is strictly because of a busy NAMM schedule.
    Hang tight while we get the release notes ready and get it posted to the website.
    Cheers,
    Jace

    Ether, like rust, never sleeps.

    Why do I have a feeling the editor will remain unchanged.

    Just dreaming here...
    For AFB owners, perhaps the editor software be able to run on multiple platforms.
    It would be nice is to duplicate the editor for both IOS and Android. Then with say a simple USB cable, plug into the AFB, and control from say a mic stand mounted smartphone. Simple interface, no need to bend down while playing to change to presets other than A/B and change any parameter quickly.
    Would it be that hard to do this? The AFB Editor looks like something that would adapt well to portrait displays on smartphones.

    I would be happy just if they have improved the editor, and that the presets could be changed up and down by pressing two foot switches at the same time.

    If it takes so long to write down the release notes, they might have changed the whole thing.
    I hope they will end soon with this agony.
