    Let's see those FM3 rigs!

    Ok decided to redo it after looking at it again, jammed it all on the home made board, and forgot to add in the expression pedal. Again, everything somewhat separated so I can bring just what I need for each gig.

    Closed Improved Virtual Capo & FreqOut-similar feature

    Would love to ditch my digitech drop tune and use the built in virtual capo for downtuning 2 whole steps or more As well as something similar to the freqout - feedback on demand I'm a dreamer :)

    Let's see those FM3 rigs!

    My current setup. Home made pedal board, from a leftover ikea shelf, stained, power brick held down with bicycle chain links, the drop and freqout with 3m dual lock. Just got the airstep, waiting for a midi cable should be in by tomorrow or so. I like that the board is seperate from the FM3...

    Closed Scene mode, LED 'active' scene and Dimmed 'inactive but loaded' scenes / 2 different color LEDs with each scene?

    Technically no there isn't. Except for scene manager, which I use as stated previously, to bypass all the amp/cab/input/outputs on a scene that I'm not using.

    Closed Scene mode, LED 'active' scene and Dimmed 'inactive but loaded' scenes / 2 different color LEDs with each scene?

    Yes I agree, and I was fantasizing that maybe when using scene manager, and bypassing all the inputs (amp, cab, input, output) strips on that scene would be a good method to tell the FM3 that a scene 'not loaded/disabled' Yes that's what I meant, thank you.

    Closed Scene mode, LED 'active' scene and Dimmed 'inactive but loaded' scenes / 2 different color LEDs with each scene?

    originally stemming from this post of mine: https://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/fm3-ring-led-question-with-scenes.164063/ I use scene mode mostly for each preset. Some presets i use all 3 switches up to 6 scenes, some I do not but still use the same layout. Currently each switch is toggled...

    FM3 ring LED question with scenes..

    I understand this, I’m not asking for more or less scenes. BUT If there was a way to LET the FM3 know which and how many scenes i’ll be using in each preset, for example using scene manager and having all the inputs/outputs etc bypassed on whichever scene, could effectively do it, marking that...

    FM3 ring LED question with scenes..

    I wonder if it's possible that when in scenes mode, that each preset with however many loaded scenes, can have dimmed color rings for the currently inactive (but loaded) scene, while having the active scene fully illuminated? That way for example if i have a preset loaded with let's say 4...

    help with FM3 config..trying to make it super simple

    Coming from an AX8, i thought the FM3 would be similar in terms of setting up the switches and programming but man maybe I just don't have the smarts. I can't seem to make this work the way I had with an AX8. Here's how I'd like to do it, if it's possible... With the ax8, each preset was a...

    AX8 is the PERFECT Size / Weight - PLEASE don't CHANGE it!

    double the power, half the weight are my top wants. And if happens to be smaller, I'd be okay with that too. I can live with 4-6 buttons with all switches being programmable in every way instead of just F switching vs the other 8 etc.

    Scenes or Presets?

    apologies, and to to LerxstFan as well, I've further confused the issue here. I may not have explained myself clearly: I do around 30 songs a gig, we do 2 sets a show. It's not a scene per song. It's 3-4 scenes within a preset bank. Each bank is TITLED with the song name. So switching between...

    Scenes or Presets?

    this but it also relates to all other effects you'll have in the previous preset. In one tune, before i X/Y from a clean to dirty i had all these effects on the clean channel (delay, reverb, comp etc) and switching to the dirty amp with no effects on it always resulted in a huge weird sound jump...

    Scenes or Presets?

    i do it via scenes. I'll tell you why. With scenes, each preset is a song, and each 'scene' is the intro verse, chorus, outro, solo, whatever it is within that song. Verses are usually quieter than choruses, solos are obviously boosted etc. So i'll have the verse be a -2 or -3db against the...

    ok, i know this is crazy...but..

    has anybody ever modified the ax8 chassis? I have a crazy idea.. first off, i don't use a lot of the switches, any external pedals, i use just a droptune and a boss fs-7 for volume changes. Is it crazy to imagine that, one can some how, take away, oh let's say the top 4 footswitches, take out...

    2 guitars, 2 different amp settings, one button to switch between globally?

    Ok so, i'm pretty sure the ax8 cannot do this, but maybe, there's a workaround. Let's say I have 2 guitars, each that sound different, and I've EQ'ed them differently using the same amp block but different settings. How can I, switch between these two amp settings, while still using scenes...

    Wish no extra lights when in SCENE MODE

    before this post, i had set all my 1-8 buttons as GLOBAL. and set them to call up presets.

    Wish no extra lights when in SCENE MODE

    just want to update for any of those that have the same issues, found a workaround for this. I used to have all my presets set as GLOBAL and thus every preset that's globally setup, will light up. Taking this off, and then setting each scene for each preset, and then having F1 be a sticky...

    When I click into scene mode (F1 assigned) there's the small red light, YET, there's also the bigger green preset light showing me where my preset is. I find this to be very distracting, and i end up confusing the two lights that are on when playing live. I don't need the green preset light to...

    Wish Bigger SIZE preset names on main page for scene mode

    I do sort of wish this is possible, but the main layout is literally a tiny little line of the preset title, and then huge P1 P2 P3 etc symbols. I'd much rather have a HUGE title, and tiny little P1 P2 P3s etc. I'm talking just about the main page. I use the AX8 in scene mode only. Each bank...

    Wish Scene volume increase and decrease using built in switches

    I hear ya, though I still wish it not to do so. Thus this being my wish, in addition to being able to use the buttons on the AX8 to do these commands as opposed to an external footswitch.

    Wish Scene volume increase and decrease using built in switches

    Just like the bigger brother I'd love to be able to assign any of the footswitches (F or regular) as scene volume increase/decrease. Right now on the AX8 it's possible with an external footswitch, but it also lags/stutters. Would love it to be just like the axe fx, all in the unit and no latency.

    Scene volume increase and decrease functionality

    Hi Mokkie, Yes you got it. Set to pedal 1/2/3/4 whichever out. And then set the pedal config to latch. My outputs are summed/copied to be the same as I only use one out at anytime, for simplicity's sake.

    Scene volume increase and decrease functionality

    Sorry to bring this up again But after weeks of using this FS-7 and doing the scene vol increase/decrese stuff I've come to notice that there's quite a bit of lag or latency with the response. EG: As soon as I hit volume up or down, the guitar signal will sort of stutter (very audible) and...

    Scene volume increase and decrease functionality

    new to the AX8, on my previous Axe FX II I was able to assign any of the footswitches to be a global volume increase/decrease in which that specific scene's output volume would be adjustable on the fly and also instantly saved. Each increase was by a db for each click. Does this function exist...

    how to use X/Y settings question..
