    Can the FM3 change a real amps ch's in the 4cm?

    Mini Amp Gizmo isn't sold anymore is it? Suhr just came out with that one mentioned above, and Mesa just came out with one as well.

    Deadpool’s FM3 Review

    Another day, I noticed there was some hum on output 2 as well. Seems to change day to day. I ended up putting an Ebtech Hum Eliminator in the mix and all the noise seems to be completely gone now. I'm still running output 1 to my monitors via XLR if I decide to use my amps FX loops instead, I...

    Can you copy and paste a block from the FM3 front panel?

    I know you can easily from FM3 Edit. Just don't see it as an option on the front panel. I don't see it in the manual, though I didn't dig too deep.

    5150 III 50W vs Kemper vs FM3

    I recently checked out an EVH 5153 50w EL34. It sounded really good and I was tempted. Instead of buying that I came home and ran my FM3 into my Invective’s FX loop. I literally laughed out loud because the FM3 setup (with the EVH models) sounded at least as good as, maybe better than, the real...

    Line 6 POD Go vs FM3

    @mischi_90 Do you still have a real amp with an FX loop? If so, try running theguitar into the Go and Go straight into the FX loop. See if that sounds better to you. Transitioning from an amp/cab to a modeler/monitors can be difficult for some people.

    Wish Performance Screen Views and Global Assignments

    I know the performance screen is planned for the FM3 eventually. I’d like to add a wish that it had more pages (maybe 4 or 5?). Also that you could, optionally, have those controls assigned globally so they would work across all presets.

    I'm not sure. With just an input and output block connected by shunts, a patch sits at ~20%. Adding an amp block pushes that up to 21%. Add a cab and it's at ~24%. But I don't know that the CPU load is the only consideration.

    Ah. Maybe that's what I was remembering. A friend was asking why it only had one and I couldn't give a proper answer. It's interesting because the amp block doesn't seem to take up much CPU. Maybe something to do with the programming architecture or something.

    To close the loop on this thread now that I’ve had FM3 for a week: You can easily remove the end caps but you’ll still need to keep the vents unobstructed.I experimented with them off, using 3M Dual Lock as small risers. It worked fine but I prefer the look with end caps on.
