    FM3 Midi Block - Can I make it switch faster?

    I guess "Pulse" is not really a good word to use, sorry. That's what Voodoo Lab calls it. Really, it is a simple Momentary contact closure/relay closing. No signal goes into the amp from the switcher.

    FM3 Midi Block - Can I make it switch faster?

    I don't think so, but anything is possible. It needs a Pulse because the switching is Momentary. On the Voodoo Switcher, I needed to set it up so that it only Pulsed with the ON function and not the OFF function of the relay button. This prevents the amp from seeing another relay closure for the...

    FM3 Midi Block - Can I make it switch faster?

    Thanks guys! I just updated to the Beta firmware. I am going to add an expression pedal while the FM is hooked up to my computer, then I'll try out the Midi switching! One thing I noticed while messing around in the FM Edit. If I am on the Midi Block edit page and I change a Scene, the PC# does...

    FM3 Midi Block - Can I make it switch faster?

    I'll give that a try! Currently using 1.05 Firmware How do I find the Beta Firmware? The only link I see on FAS website is for 1.05

    FM3 Midi Block - Can I make it switch faster?

    I originally had the Switcher on Channel 2 and the FM on Channel 1 when I was using the Control Switcher. I changed the Switcher back to Channel 1 for the RJM. I'll switch it to Channel 2 and see if that changes things. I wasn't sure if it mattered because I'm using the FC12 instead of a Midi...

    FM3 Midi Block - Can I make it switch faster?

    I'll give that a try! I also realized that I can change the PC # on the Midi block and then push Test..... As for the RJM, possibly. I had the same problems with the Voodoo Lab Control Switcher. The amp changes instantly with it's foot switch, so that leads me to believe that it's not the amp...

    FM3 Midi Block - Can I make it switch faster?

    Thanks! I moved the midi block to be the very first block in the Preset. Figured it wouldn't hurt to try. This didn't change anything. I did notice though, that the Boost function on the amp works faster than changing channels does...... The Boost function uses a Momentary On/Off function...

    FM3 Midi Block - Can I make it switch faster?

    The Bogner requires a Momentary "Pulse-Only" to change channels. I did cycle through the Scenes while in the Edit page for the Midi block. It seems to have the same delay. I'll experiment with moving the Midi block around. It is currently in the middle of the Preset. I placed it between the...

    FM3 Midi Block - Can I make it switch faster?

    Thanks everyone! I made a custom cable for my Mini Amp Gizmo. The delay in switching is still there. It is definitely coming from the FM3. I’ll try the FM3 without the FC12 and see what happens. A few of the Scenes have a Hold function on Their buttons, they are left over from the factory...

    FM3 Midi Block - Can I make it switch faster?

    Thanks! I had thought of that, but I've used the Voodoo Lab on other amps with great success. I have an RJM Mini Amp Gizmo too. I'll make a cable up for the Gizmo and try it this afternoon.

    FM3 Midi Block - Can I make it switch faster?

    I forgot to mention that I am using the newest Firmware for both the FM3 and the FC12.

    FM3 Midi Block - Can I make it switch faster?

    Hey Everyone! I am loving the FM3 so far! I'm using the FM3 with an FC12 in 4CM with a Bogner Ecstasy 3534 amp. The FM3 sits on top of my amp to keep all audio cabling as short as possible. The Bogner uses Momentary switching that is "Pulse Only," for channel switching. I am using a Voodoo Lab...

    WISH: Scene Toggle last scene

    +1000!!! I use this function on my Digitech GSP1101 all the time. Very powerful tool if you sing and play in a band, no need to look at the foot switch to change back from a solo or clean patch!

    FX8 Relay Question - Momentary Switching?

    Thanks! It sounds like that will work. The FX8 will hopefully get here on Friday and I'll try it out! I should have guessed that Fractal called it something different. Most of my amps use Latching relays for switching, but I have 2 older Rivera S-120 stereo amps that use Momentary. This will...

    FX8 Relay Question - Momentary Switching?

    Thanks Chris, I have an old Rivera amp that uses Momentary switching. I've tried it with Latching, but it doesn't work right and I don't want to burn up any of the control circuit inside the amp. I have a few RJM devices, Switch Gizmo, Mini Amp Gizmo, but wanted to do away with everything I can...
