    Calling FM3 Owners ... attached is one of my Axe-Fx 3 Presets .... will it load / run on the FM3 (?) .... and .... what FM3 %CPU?

    Hmmmmm ..... that's somewhat disconcerting ....... I would have thought and expected that the FM3 would handle low-to-mid %90 <->%95 before it started "maxing out" ...... %80 to %85 is a long way off from %100 .... not that I expect any unit to be stable at or close to %100. Ben

    My sincere thanks Yek :) Great to know ! If you don't mind, and you still have the preset on your FM3, could you please add a 2nd Cab - Factory 1 Cab 116 1x12 AC-20 DLX 421 - and let me know what the FM3 %CPU increases too (?) Hoping this isn't too much hassle. Thanks again, Ben
