Controller Value Charts – Axe-Fx II

This page lists the percentage value to use for a Controller when you want a particular value when attaching a Modifier to a parameter. The most common parameter types are included here. For example, a value of 8 seconds in the Time parameter of the Reverb block would translate to a Controller value of 39.7%. This is most useful for Scene Controllers introduced in Firmware v12, but applies to all Controllers in the Axe-FX. IMPORTANT – All values other than Source, Damping and Auto-Engage functions must be at Default settings for the following charts to be effective. Please watch my Scene Controller – Basics video to see the concept behind calculating these values. For values that aren’t on this chart, use the following formula to calculate the Controller % value. Range = Max – Min (Desired  VALUE) – (Min) = X X/Range = Controller % Example: Reverb Time Parameter: Desired value of 5 seconds Min = .10 Seconds, Max = 20 Seconds 20  – .10 = 19.90 5 – .10  = 4.9 4.9/19.90 = .246 = 24.6% Note – This formula does not work for logarithmic and other non-linear parameters, such as Frequency, Q, Rate, and Trim, among others. It’s best to tune the Controller % value “by ear.” Synth Frequency has been manually calculated for your convenience. Parameter Type: Percentage – 0 – 100% 0 – 10 Value Decibels -80...
