    White noise at boot up

    Anyone else experience this? Just turned on my FM9 with the 2.0 beta and was blasted with very loud white noise coming out. Made me jump out of my chair :dizzy: I'm connected via spidf to my AU Apollo X6 interface. Reboot fixed the issue.

    Question about MIDI block bypass?

    I figured out my issue with tap tempo isn't with FM3. It is with my controller (Morningstar MC8). The MC8 has several double tap and/or release functions where you can do different commands with the same footswitch. Because of this, repeated fast taps don't always send a command because it...

    Yes, I agree it's pretty standard. Just not documented in the manual. That's what confused me at first. I assumed it was a toggle behavior rather than a on/off. Now I'm trying the setup the tap tempo. Again the manual only states to assign a CC number. No value specified. My trial and error...

    I'm trying to turn on/off individual blocks via MIDI.

However when I assign and send a CC message number, it only seems to bypass the...

    Fixed BPM on the FM3 jumps 250 BPM and is locked there when receiving midi clock

    For simple delays, it's no big deal to set the timing manually like the old days. For sync'ing LFOs and sequences, it's a must to work in lock step. That is where USB MIDI is also very helpful (to say the least).

    Fixed BPM on the FM3 jumps 250 BPM and is locked there when receiving midi clock

    Last time I clocked sync'd, I got it to work with MIDI DIN only. But, USB had to also be disconnected or it double clocked to the 250 max BPM. So no FM3 Edit at the same time :confused: It does seem buggy IMO. That said, I haven't extensively tested it. I was hoping USB MIDI would be...

    Anyone use the No-headphone-jack FM3 with headphones yet?

    On most mixers yes. Unity is where there is no signal cut or gain at the preamp input stage. Check your mixer’s manual. On the pic I posted above, you can see a marker “U” on the gain pots. That where unity is on my mixer. I have it slightly higher in the photo.

    Question - FX 8 midi switching

    If you're using MIDI control, you shouldn't also use the footswitch. This will possibly cause the default amp parameters to change and unexpected (likely opposite) things will happen when receiving MIDI commands.

    Yeah, I just got a Source Audio Kingmaker Fuzz. It sounds way better than any FX8 fuzz. I'd love to use the MIDI preset recall, but I can't do that and control my Mesa TC-50 because of the only PC per scene limit.

    AX8 + FX8 the "the killer app"??

    Me too. My AX8 is tied to my FRFR rig and my FX8 is tied to my amp (Mesa TA30). For me, they serve different uses at different times. Trying to put both on one pedal board would seem to be overkill IMO.
