    My "OMC9" setup

    My setup: I have the FM1 receiving midi on channel 1 and the MC6 on channel 2. You may choose other channels, but be sure that they are two seperate channels, to prevent problems. The Control Changes # I am using are arbitrary too, you can choose other ones. Set these up on the FM3 under...

    MIDI Question - two CC's sending a PC?

    If you setup the devices correctly, they can each receive midi info on seperate channels without problems. This is exactly why you have 16 midi channels available.

    My "OMC9" setup

    FM3 is sending midi to the MC6, and the MC6 is sending midi to the FM3. Basically, I'm using the FM3 to change banks on the MC6 and using the MC6 to change presets/scenes/effects on the FM3. Additionally, there is some "internal switching" on the MC6, where pressing a footswitch will toggle some...

    I am assuming that you went FM3 -> poweramp -> guitarcab. If you have made your presets using studio monitors/FRFR setup, then playing through a poweramp/cab will most likely require a tuning of those presets. While I am personally not familiar with the Marshall head you mention, it seems to...

    I have had several HB power supplies and found them very reliable and excellent "bang for the buck" Not sure if the power consumption of the FM3..but I guess 22.5 Watt would suffice. Was not aware of this model. And seems to fit my needs too (FM3, mc6, wireless) so thanks for mentioning it.

    Question for MC6 users. Expression pedals

    Thanks. Informative. From the video I gather that, while you (probably, as you say) can not change the 'layout' of the MC6 with MIDI commands, you are able to do so from within the unit itself. Interesting! That opens up many more possibilities than I had thought of.

    I have the FM3, Can I use the FC-12 easily by using the OMG9 setup?

    You can use the FM3 as the Master controller' for the views.

It's just personal preference. if you think you need instant access to 8 scenes, 12 presets...

    the FCB uses a flimy plastic foil that goes from translucent to completely dark. Translucency is measured at some point.

    Please explain to my silly brain?

    You don't get a louder volume, if you set things up correctly, when using parrallel effects. Set Bypass to Mute in or Mute out so that, when disengaged, no sound is outputted (is that a word?) from the FX block. Any other bypass mode will lead to volume difference.
