    Post-power surge (strange light behavior)

    Had a brief power outage this morning. FM3 and Xitone are plugged into a UPS. Turned on the Xitone and it was buzzing. Some lights were lit on the FM3, including the screen blinking, even when unplugged. I unplugged both, checked the UPS, turned the Xitone back on and it was fine. Turned the...

    Any connection problems?

    Invitation for the FM9 came. I've been having a lot of connection problems with my FM3 and editor. Anyone have this with FM9, or is that no longer an issue? Thanks.

    Axe-Fx III Flanger?

    How are the effects in the Axe FX III? I'm specifically interested in the flanger. Hippie Tim's demo of the rotary sounds great. Thanks

    So, the whole Klon thing

    Not to resurrect this whole thing or beat a dead horse, but, after having played a real Klon Centaur Gold recently, I get it. There is something really unique. Are the various clones close? Maybe so, but I haven't played all of them. Can I get really close to it on the Axe FX? Yes, but it's not...

    Who's glad to own a Made in USA version? Or does it matter at all to you? Truly cannot beat that price. I don't believe for one minute that the M.I.C. version will be any less quality. Pretty sure we can expect that it just wouldn't be allowed. Hoping for the best for everyone. Getting more...

    some kind of glitch

    Had my AX8 on outside for a while this afternoon. Not in direct sun, but it was hot out. On a from scratch preset with 3 scenes. After probably 1 & 1/2 hours, the footswitch functions just changed on me. Turning it off and back on solved the problem, but I'm posting this to see if others have...

    How would you set up presets for...

    More Than a Feeling- Boston, Fade to Black- Metallica, The Trees and A Farewell to Kings- RUSH, and other songs which have acoustic and electric parts? Just trying to think it through. With these songs, I do think there's enough time to make a preset change, but I'm curious to see how others...
