    LEDS on-power off? Screen white!

    Maybe been discussed already, not sure. So found my FM3 seemingly getting power from USB able? Just my guess of course. But ALL LEDS were on bright and the screen was on WHITE. Now it has not been used for a few days but of course I leave the USB cable plugged in. Is this familiar? Known? Thanks

    My Fav Duo doing a Post Malone cover-Really?

    Never heard of Post Malone before I saw this. What can I say. But these 2 sisters made it their own imho. No autotune, no massive FX, I liked it!

    Very OT: 4G vs 5G vs who cares?

    So, not being a youngster or a smartphone mega user I have to wonder about 5G? I am switching to infinity mobile and will need a new phone only because my LG6 is not acceptable to xfinity. But my monthly bill will go from $55.00 a month to $16.70-verified by xfinity-that's the 1GB plan and...

    Are these Fender Strat neck shape images accurate?

    Always had Strats with the common "C" neck- Wondering how different the newer "D" shape would be? Don't have anywhere I can try one. Images seem like it would just fill your hand a bit more. Seems very close to my PRS S2 McCarty 594! I did search and this is the best image I could find thru...

    Another family Band.

    I am guessing many have already heard of these 3 brothers and 2 sisters- Liliac. In Romanian means "Bat" as in vampire maybe! Good cover imho, especially singer\bass player and the guitar player. Their father is from Transylvania. Their mother is also from Romania.....

    FRETS ... Mainly Strat type guitars

    So I have always played Fender Strats and Teles-just what I like and do. So not looking for advice on "other" guitars, just have questions about frets. I have had different frets way back when, mainly because I have been playing so long and that's what Fender offered. Last 20 years mainly medium...

    OK, Now I know I'm old, but.......It's OK

    So is this temperature normal?

    Just turned on the FM3-a\c 76F degrees room. Temp says 123F and now it is going up to 132F. That seems really hot for just starting up. It is wavering between 129F and 131F. Have not DONE anything, now 132F steady? I don't like that. Anyone? I'm beginning to regret selling my AX8 :(

    Saving presets?

    So, canb you save a preset that is a scene in a preset? IOW, like Leons fender cleans, each scene is a different amp and settings. Suppose I want scene 3 as my preset? I know I can save blocks, etc and rebuild. But is that the only way? I am hoping I am just missing the obvious :) Thanks

    Little FM3 weirdness

    Stand-in Switches confusion?

    :( So, in the hardware\fc controllers-onboard switches screen. FM3 SW 1 tip FM3 SW 1 ring FM3 SW 2 tip FM3 SW 2 ring. So I understand the tip\switch reference but my expression pedal in external 1 has nothing to do with this page? Is that correct? Since Layouts are your only choices. So this is...
  49. Stratman68

    System reset?

    Shouldn't this clear external stand in switch settings back to Unassigned?
  50. Stratman68

    OK So we cannot swap scenes?

    Reason I ask is I have a preset with 8 scenes I want to rearrange the order. Tough without swap. Copy and you lose a scene. So, no swap?

    So External switches (besides Expression pedal) Midi Control#'s?

    Anyone familiar with this Canon Camera?

    Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Camera w/EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Zoom Lens I can get a nice deal on a NEW black one.

    Curious dumb question #347 - Solved, so stupid on my part

    So, yes I have USB connected-that may be my issue. BUT, I have and always have , even with my Ultra and all the others I have owned over the years used the XLR outs to my Echo Layla 3G or Roland octa capture. So with the FM3, if I restart my PC the sound disappears until the PC reboots? Strange.

    AX8 to help control FM3

    Is this possible? Since I have one and it is not selling I am thinking of just keeping it for now. I did search before anyone asks.
  56. Stratman68

    OK another dumb question about footswitches

    I am talking about just the FM3-Can I set , say Footswitch 1 to Scene-toggle-1-2 and wrap...wait for it----GLOBALLY? You may ask why. No.1 I only use a few presets and scenes. I am 99% in my home studio. I see I can copy and paste so is that my option? Thanks
  57. Stratman68

    Toggle is my new best friend

    I have an external FS-6 but using the toggle function on the FM3 has opened up so many avenues for me. I don't use many presets. Love the toggle. Thanks
  58. Stratman68

    Are preset bundles coming in the future?

    I did a search but didn't find anything. I am sure this has been asked already. Any news? I saved all my presets from my AX8 in bundles. Not realizing my error. Guess I'll have to unpack the AX8-had it ready to ship some day.

    FM3 Screen and LCD Question

    So, with the Ax8 we had options like Big Preset name or something like that. Do we have any control over the fonts? I don't mean the type, I mean Caps, bold, like that. Size of course would be great. Just skin, don't shoot me!
  62. Stratman68

    Is this normal? FM3 H-E_L_P

    So just powered it up-arrived today.Updated FW to 1p03. Installed both drivers-flawless-so cool! Did NOTHING else at all. Shouldn't the LCD's have something in them? Mine are blank and blue . On preset 1 59Bassguy-the default start.

    AX8 factory Preset question

    So, I just do not remember how the factory presets looked because it has been AGES.

    Acoustic mic & pickup?

    Picking technique is incredible IMHO-not the song, the Guitar playing

    So, came across this on youtube because I often search for incredible or skilled guitar players. ""So forget the song"" and pay attention to Molly's right hand. Not to mention she is singing also. She is super accurate. Check the lick at about 46 seconds as an example. Effortless for her!
