    Just how loud are open back headphones anyway?

    My sennheiser HD650s are audibly loud, but not so loud that I couldn't do late night preset tweaking.

    Creating Jazz Guitar Tones (First Post)

    To me, the trick in getting those smoky archtop tones is just turning down the tone knob on my guitar and using the neck pickup. Ampwise I'm usually happy with some kind of a fender or a jc120 model. I tend to turn down the treble in the amp too. IRL, I think a polytone was what i used to...

    Let's see those FM3 rigs!

    Haha I did the same thing a couple of years ago when i was on the AX8! (ultimately went back to a full sized tho...)

    Also, just something to think about. The mx-5 has two "pages" available, with long and short presses for each switch on each page, so you really do have a lot of options. I have mine more or less set up with individual effects on/off on the first page short press, and effects channel increment...

    Let's see those FM3 rigs!

    That's exactly why I haven't gone for the FC6 - I want to shrink my pedalboard, not grow it! As it is, this is still bigger than my ax8 board, but I can live with it, and part of it is unavoidable anyway - I abandoned the mini volume and exp pedals I was using in favor of full-sized pedals...

    Let's see those FM3 rigs!

    Sure thing lol - MX 5 and the heaphone amp above the eb vp are powered from the FASlink port - I bought a 9VDC converter which takes the 11V from the port and makes 9V for those two. It's built into this giant octopus cable that has 1 end for the FASLINK, (that's the green plug in the back)...

    I have it set up to always be volume - it's connected directly to the FM3. The mission is mostly wah, but controls other parameters too. That one goes in through via CC through the MX-5.

    FM3 pedalboard suggestions

    Personally, I like just screwing everything to a hunk of plywood. 🤘

    well, calling me a woodworker is very generous, but thank you! haha I love the hard mounting. Everything just feels so so solid. I don't think I ever want to go back to velco if I can avoid it!

    Let's see those FM3 rigs!

    Yeah, everything that I could is fixed to the board via screws going into the back of the plywood: FM3, voes MX-5 (against voes own recommendation 😬), both exp pedals, and the little headphone amp in the upper right. I countersunk all the holes in the back of the plywood, so that the board...

    USB vs SPDIF observations

    Right, that's why i tried clocking my interface from the FM3 via spdif, when i was using USB as an input, but that didn't seem to clean it up,

    USB vs SPDIF observations

    Could be! I'm probably overestimating it too; I didn't actually measure it. But at this point, and esp given the strange bacon frying sound I hear, it's a bit of a don't care for me: I'll use SPDIF for audio and USB for connecting to FM3 edit. (although as it would be nice to bypass the...
