    Why does the sound of a modeler have to be "the sound of a miced amp" instead of "the sound of an amp"

    Hi all ! I think the OP is getting at a ground-up-component-level-digitally-modelled-speaker-without-any-mic-involvement ..... as opposed to mic-shot IR's. I would expect because of the nature of measuring such different physical and primitive componentry that makes up a real physical...

    Delay and Reverb Spillover from Scene-to-Scene with " Mute FX In " in " Bypass Mode " selected is now back to working fine ..... thanks :) BTW .... I've only tested this with the "Dual Delay" but I figure it will be good across all the delays and reverbs. Thanks, Ben

    Make the Amp BIAS "hotter" ...... which control(s) do I adjust ?

    Hi all ! Background Probably a simple question but many moons ago - before going over to Vox/DC30 Land - I ran a real Mesa Boogie MK 3 Purple Stripe Rev / Graphic non-Simul-class Combo.

    Amp Block "Input Trim" ...... is this at the Analog Front End -or- in the Digital Side ?

    FM3 Firmware Version 4.01

    Hi Admin M@ ! Thanks for the update - I'm guessing / assuming then that realistically puts the FM3 5.0 Public Beeta [ :) ] Release at around Week 2 or Week 3 of Jan 2022 or thereabouts (?) All the best, Ben

    " Speaker Compression " .... a quick question on its " optimal " use (?)

    I guess thats what im trying to find out the answer too ? FRFR or guitar speaker, in a mechanical sense are the same (?) so they should compress in the same way (?) notwithstanding there differing frequency response (?). Ben
