    FM3 Presets 4.01

    Thanks for this Matt. Other than the bug/delay fixes, would you explain the benefit in this. Specifically, how does running the utility on your end change the presets in your download? Is there some new format for these new presets that will give us more than us running the utility on the...

    Axe-Fx III Factory Presets 16.04

    Wasn't aware they came from the wiki - I thought he had compiled this himself. So that I don't dilute what you're doing with the wiki, would you prefer I delete my response or add a comment attributing the wiki and linking to it? Appreciate all you do for us!

    EV-1 / Temple Attachment Plate Question

    I won't need to quickly detach my components, so I didn't use Temple's quick releases. I took the rubber feet off everything and used M3.5-.60 16mm screws for everything. Had to use a few washers where it didn't feel like there was enough depth to hold the screw length or where there was a...

    King's X...Amp and IR?

    In the Pete Thorn interview, Ty says the Orange 120 transistor amp was Orange's only amp that gave him the tone/attack he was looking for, so I think the tone was as important as the greatly improved reliability of his road rig. He also mentioned using an Axe Fx rig, but didn't elaborate on it.

    Gary Moore long sustain with FM3

    Here's Steve Hackett discussing his sustainer equipped Fernandes Les Paul in detail. For those not familiar with Steve, he was Genesis' guitarist through most of their early/Peter Gabriel years when they crafted many great songs like Firth of Fifth. I'm not sure if he used volume or an Ebow to...

    Found a great amp/cab setup for cleans

    I’m surprised they are Weber’s. My real Bad Cat 212 has G12 H30s.

    Axe-Fx III Factory Presets 16.04

    I got to meet Jamie and the rest of the band when they came here about 15 years ago. I drove them around town the afternoon before their show. Nice guys. Rupert, their keyboard player, is a hoot. Shuttered Room, their first release, is great too. Red Skies is one of my faves.

    FM3 Firmware Version 4.00

    I've also noticed my FM3 not being recognized on the USB port (Windows 10) since FW4. I found an earlier suggestion to unplug the USB from the computer, restart the FM3, then plug it back in to the computer. Works every time for me and doesn't require restarting the computer.

    Wrecker Express Normal scene is my new favorite factory preset

    I met Glenn and played through his rig at a Nashville amp show about 10 years ago. Great guy, amp and guitar!

    FM3 Factory Presets version 4.0 "Cygnus"

    My volume is maxed out on boot, as if I have the EV1 toe down, even though it's at heel down. I have to use the EV1 to bring it back down. I think the feature to boot at 0 volume was added a long time ago, but is missing now. Not a big deal for me. Anyone else notice this?
