    Drop Tune FX (like Digitech)

    I currently down shift with my pedal, you can set it up for either a down tune via scene change, preset switch, or Expression pedal, it all works. When it comes to the Expression Pedal, I personally use the "Classic Whammy" and just set it to my Exp Pedal via the control knob.

    A bit of an issue...

    Regardless, worst case scenario, since I only use one Expression pedal, I could just plug into the second slot and ignore the first for the time being I assume? Would I run into any issues otherwise with the unit possibly still detecting Pedal 1 as in use because it's stuck in there?

    Sooo, I bought an expression pedal. Plugged it into my Pedal 1 slot in the back of my FM3, and the tip of the TRS cable is now stuck inside of my port. Would anyone please shine some light on some of the ways you guys have remedied this kind of issue in the past? I can't be the first.

    Question 2 about 4 cable method

    So, regarding the 4CM, I'll probably be trying the OUT1 method with an XLR-TS cable (apparently XLR-TRS is not recommended per the user manual, but XLR to TS is ok from what I've been reading). That being said, other than the special XLR-TS, should I be using 3 humbuster cables for the other 3...

    Best power amp to drive a cab?

    Simple approach for similar air movement?

The unit was way over my head, but I eventually dove in and after a few years, got a decent understanding...

    How are you connecting your FM3 to your audio interface?

    So I used to go direct USB with my Axe2, and re-amp that way. But with my FM3, I have to use my MOTU due to the FM3 having input when going direct. That being said. Does re-amping with the FM3 through the MOTU, work the same with re-amping like the FM3 direct? I know I was able to just use the...

    How are you connecting your FM3 to your audio interface?

    Recording with FM3 into interface

    Follow up: Tested this again. Low Latency did not fix the issue, so I muted the track, and it's recording at a delay. This is definitely an issue with the FM3 itself as an interface. After doing some small digging, I read some threads that lead to a TGP post about Cliff stating the USB delay is...

    Recording with FM3 into interface

    Thank you, this makes more sense. Oddly enough I remember playing around with "Low Latency Monitoring" within my ProTools, yet I also remember it not turning off the monitoring through the DAW itself. Which I guess would be a ProTools issue @ that point.
  44. S

    Recording with FM3 into interface

    I'm a bit confused. I have my monitors hooked up to the FM3, and the FM3 plugged into the PC via USB. How do I monitor separately?

    Recording with FM3 into interface

    Wow. So I decided to use my FM3 direct as an interface last night, and yeah, I am also having latency issues. Never had this with my AxeII. That being said, this is combatable by using an external interface?
