    LEDS on-power off? Screen white!

    So it gets worse. The leds and the WHITE screen stay on unless I I pull the usb cable. What a drag!

    LEDS on-power off? Screen white!

    Switched out the cable-Nothing. Switched the usb port and the cable again-nothing. By nothing I mean the FM3 starts up fine but the editor will not connect. Powered off and on each time. Went back to original port and cable-works fine? This type of stuff scares me.

    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

    Should I buy an FC-6 or an FC-12

    True Dave. But he is talking bedroom playing. I have a home studio and have 2 stand ins like @Joe Bfstplk and just the FM3. Sure 6 more would be cool. 12 more I would not know what to use them for except being lazy.. But hey, it's not my $$$. Just offering my opinion, as asked.

    Izotope plugins worth it?

    Elements, as stated are mainly basics....but great deal for sure. Full versions are ridiculously good. Also the upgrades from elements are cheaper than first time buy. especially at $49 for all that stuff.
