    FM3: when?

    My AX8 sounded glorious at rehearsal today...for me the FM3 doesn´t have enough footswitches, so I bought the AXE III and FC 12 instead. I´m on the waitlist for the FM3 too just to check it out together with my FC 12. I didn´t expect the FM3 in Europe before Christmas anyway, so all is cool with me.

    FM3 or AX8

    I got the AXE 3 in the meantime because I was a little disappointed by the form factor of the FM3, not enough switches for me that is.

    I get it that more powerful processors in a FC6 housing would not work due to thermal problems...in a FC12 housing we could have double processing power simply speaking, that would bring us somewhere in the middle between an AXE III and a FM3, right? And would allow for more footswitches. Price...

    The more I think about it I will likely not buy a FM3-FC6/FC12 combo because I had expected more CPU power in the new unit.

    Axefest 2019 + AX8 ..... what do people think is coming?

    My guess is that it is no possible to stuff any more Ares into the AX8 than what is already in there, that´s the reason why there are no updates since September. So only a new, more powerful unit makes sense. I highly doubt FAS would make another stripped down unit like an AX6 or something.

    First, bring on FW 10.00 to the AX8. Second, bring on a full blown AX8-III-Ultra- whatever it is called. I don´t care for a stripped-down floor version, I want full power in a floor unit. I can´t see myself carrying a rack and foot controller anymore.
