    FC layout issue

    Great idea thanks for the suggestion! It does add one more foot stomp every time but WTH, small price to pay

    Let's see those FM3 rigs!

    I just realized I have an old cable from Best-tronics that is 5 to 7 pin midi with the power end (from my AxeII/MFC days). I can simply change the power end to an xlr and shorten. Thanks!

    Nice rig, love that setup! Did you buy the midi cable somewhere or did you make it yourself?

    I use the effects layout on this preset with mostly per-preset switches so it should all work. There was quite a bit of stuff going on in the other scenes so to simplify, I just copied scene 1 to ALL. So some of the effects and routing may not seem to make sense. Just enjoy scene 1 and dump...

    FC layout issue

    This would be really cool and if it was per preset. Make it this way in the III as well. When I have song presets, I like to use scenes but when I'm free wheelin' I prefer the effects layout. A workout around option is to use per-preset switches and assign what each switch does in each...

    I posted a wish in FM3 forum for ulrares ir's and the drive block update (in particular the OCD) so I could get closer to this preset. So here it is, use a Les Paul with good PAF repro's. I'm using an R9 with Throbak Kalamazoo pups. Hope you like!

    Wish It's THIS Close...

    I've only been using my FM3 lately, programming what I thought were some really great tones (and I believe there are) - until I went back to my AxeFxIII today. The difference with Ultrares IR's is definitely noticeable as are the drive blocks. I'm using an H9 so I can live without a ton of...

    OMG9 - Can somebody please make a complete step by step tutorial how completely to do Per-presets

    Really fairly simple. In FM3-edit, 1) click "Per-Preset FC" go to the "definitions" tab 2) choose a switch and assign the function you want for tap/hold 3) click the "Overrides" tab, choose which layout and switch you want to be affected.

    Andy Wood tackling EVH tones with his AFIII

    Technically it's not if you're referring to having 3 speakers, L/C/R. But it does accomplish the effect in a stereo field which, let's face it, in a recording or live sound system that's how it's going to be. Good mix tip.

    Andy Wood tackling EVH tones with his AFIII

    I doubt that'd be an issue You can use it for Andy's preset, Eddie type stuff or any preset where you want the wet/dry/wet setup. Just thought I'd offer it up as it only requires 1 delay block and does the same thing Andy is showing using 2 blocks
  14. brianv4

    Andy Wood tackling EVH tones with his AFIII

    Great guitarist and a great tip for many guitar sounds. Fairly simple preset, he should've just posted it in axe-change instead of trying to sell it. I mean, you can basically copy it from the video anyway. And you don't need to use 2 delay blocks. Just use the dual delay and pan L/R like...

    Already thinking add an H9 to FM3... Anyone have or other good options?

    Yeah I get it. It's like trying to explain the difference between immersive and 3-dimensional. I think the Eventide algorithms are most likely more complex? You can recreate the sound of an Eventide with a Fractal but you may need to use more than one block and/or routing option. Aside from...

    I added an H9 after I started running out of CPU. I was still in AxeFxIII mode. You'll most likely never run out of CPU again if you add one. I'm mainly using it for Verbs, Delays. Since I can send a program change for each scene you can use it for a lot actually. However, now that I've...

    Eric Johnson Clean & Lead Tones

    Well, nice playing! I'd say you're in the ballpark but who cares if it sounds like EJ or not that's a really nice clean tone. In general, I think the OD tone is too heavy in the lower mids and you could stand to add some upper mids to get a more vocal quality.
