    EV1 & FM3

    As long as you don’t use it as a “global” volume pedal, you get to determine what the expression pedal is used for per-preset (and if you’re clever, per-scene). One of those options is to place a volume block in the preset, so then you’d have a volume pedal again. But no, the physical...

    FS-6 External Switch

    I think you can only use the “Hold” function on an external switch if you make it a Stand-In switch. That would be the only way to do Tap/Tuner on one switch. But you have 9 Layouts with 12 switches (divided into 4 views on the FM3) available… just assign the Stand-In switches to a Layout you...

    Amp Suggestion: Great Drive Tone For Tele

    It amazes me that this many decades into playing guitar, I can still discover guitarists from the classic years that I’ve never heard of. Thanks for the heads up, I’m going to get lost in a Roy Buchanan YouTube deep dive now. Sorry for the thread tangent. Back to the 90s drive tones, yeah!

    I think it depends on context and what you’re using it for. If it’s just to control the FM3, the FC6 is a much better integration. Easier to set up and it shows preset and scene names, has color etc. If you’re looking to control several different devices via MIDI, the MCs are a lot more...

    To me it feels inconsistent with other UI implementations. On the AX8, the footswitches would blink while you’re scrolling through banks of presets, but only in Single Preset mode (not Sticky Preset). On the H* products, same thing - preset choices blink only if you’re in the single choice...

    Is there something on the FM3 that would serve as a usable bass amp / preset?

    FM3 Firmware Version 3.03 beta 1

    Are you sure that's correct? The user cabs I've loaded are all known UltraRes, and they are showing italic. For example, the AustinBuddy Fantastic 2x12 Cab Pack is UltraRes and they are showing italic. Do you think maybe the FM3 was truncating all user cabs as standard res on import?

    I can confirm, Low Cut in the Drive block isn't doing anything on any of the models I've tried. Not just in FM3-Edit, this is while editing on the unit itself. Also - and I should have expected this - the Drive block is significantly different sounding now, so I need to pull my pedals out to...

    Morningstar MC6 to Mimic FC6 (OMC9?)

    I’ve thought about trying this. You can set the FM3 switches as Control Switches, each with a MIDI payload to switch banks on the MC6. Not as nifty as Layout Links but the concept works. Here’s where it breaks down (or at least becomes less useful and less integrated than an FC6). You can...

    Why Fractal don't use aluminium for product chassis ?

    Syncable pre-delay is almost a requirement in a modern reverb. I like to find the subdivision that most closely matches the typical predelay I'd use for a given purpose - for example, I love the sound of about 90ms predelay on lead vocals. If a song is at 120bpm, a dotted 1/32 predelay gives...

    Trigger control switch from MIDI CC

    My workaround doesn’t affect the state of a control switch. The concept isn’t to send MIDI to the control switch, it’s for the control switch to send the same MIDI data that an external controller is sending. What do you want to use CS1 to control? Let’s assume for this example that you want...

    Tap Tempo Reverb?

    There are some formulas out there for calculating the ideal tail decay for a given tempo. And then of course pre-delay is sometimes synchronized to tempo, but that’s just the time before the reverb starts, not the tail.

    Trigger control switch from MIDI CC

    This seems related to the wish for MIDI Stand In switches. It makes more sense that a remote MIDI switch would be standing in as CS1 rather than manipulating CS1, which is itself a controller.

    Trigger control switch from MIDI CC

    You’re almost there. Set the MC3 to pass MIDI Thru. So then when you hit your FC-12 CS1 switch, since you’ve assigned it a MIDI CC payload, it’s sending that CC out to the MC3 and back into the FM3 (assuming you’ve connected to both MIDI In and Out). In this scenario, the amp drive assigned to...

    Mix/Levels question, what am I doing wrong?

    Although to confuse matters, the delay block’s mix knob follows a mix law that leaves your dry level at 100% until you reach 50% on the mix knob. They refer to it as a “constant power algorithm”. So running delay blocks in parallel is more for chaining the delay with additional sounds without...

    Not a Bug FW 3.02 bug: Modifiers?

    Not a Bug FW 3.02 bug: Modifiers?

    I’m using the same version (1.03.02) on macOS and it’s working here. Your Source box should say “None” when there isn’t a controller selected, but everything else should be grayed out until you’ve selected a source. Maybe try uninstalling FM3-Edit and reinstalling it fresh?

    Mix/Levels question, what am I doing wrong?

    Typically when setting delay mix to 100%, you’d use Input Gain on the Mix page to set the level of the delay. And, you’d usually only do this if the delay block was in parallel with the main signal path, rather than in series.

    Ah I misunderstood, I thought @dtougas was saying his Out 2 was being boosted when using the loop. Yes, Out 1 is hotter than Out 2 by design, unless you use Out 2 Copy without an Out 2 block. It surprised me too at first, because of the difference in behavior from Axe Fx II and AX8 that I was...

    It’s not clear what you’re using the Soundblaster sound card for.

    Can the Axe-Fx III emulate the QUICK CONTROL knobs on an Axe-Fx II?

  55. philipacamaniac

    Using FM3 with Microphones/DAW

    You still need a mic pre, the Cloudlifter is only bringing the SM7 (or other low output mic) up to the output range of condenser mics. And, the Cloudlifter needs 48V power, which your mic pre would generally provide (the FM3 does not).

    Cygnus vs Ares (orginally on AXE III msg board)

    I'm impressed by the difference in dynamics, but you have to listen in mono. Otherwise there's a stereo image difference between the two recordings that (I hope) is unrelated to Cygnus. The FM3 recording is narrower. Or is this the lack of UltraRes on the FM3? If the weird 3D effect is Cygnus...

    Not a Bug Out 2 Block Level

    I totally get that, in fact I’ve offered that advice on the forum. My Out 2 knob is maxed. However, the Out 2 knob has no affect at all on the level within the Out 2 block. There is internal attenuation happening on the grid itself, and I still believe it’s a bug.
  69. philipacamaniac

    Help me understand a bit better. Unity gain means the output equals the input, but in this case, the Out 2 Block input seems to be causing a decrease in level. Here's a real world use case: Let's say I want to split my wet and dry signals. Amp block goes to Out 1. A split after the amp block...

    There seems to be something amiss with the Out 2 Block. If you send a test signal (either through an input, or the Synth block) to both the Out 1 and Out 2 blocks, the signal going into the Out 2 Block is about 20 dB quieter. The physical Output 2 isn't the issue - using the Output 2 Copy =...
  72. philipacamaniac

    How do you set up wet-dry-wet FM3?

    Set Output 2 volume to full, as you’re simply passing through the signal from input to output (full is unity gain, appropriate for sending signal that hasn’t passed through an amp block to real amps or pedals). If you want to adjust the Archon level, do it on the amp.

    Switching between clean/dirty with external drive pedal always on

    Run it in series, not parallel. Out 2 block can stay active. It’s the In 2 block that will bring your external pedal in and out of the chain. When bypassed, the In 2 block acts as a shunt. When engaged, it ignores the grid input and uses the physical Input 2 connector source.
