    Any word on the FM3 getting the Axe III's Pitch Block?

    I think all of this goes back to the fact that the FM3 should have been designed with the Axe III CPU in a smaller format, but I don't know if that is possible. Kinda like a lower end Camaro or Mustang that has a V6 instead of a V8.

    How do you rate Axe-Fx 3 effects vs Eventide and other high end stuff?

    I think another unit the Axe has done an amazing job at is the MXR-117 Flanger. No other pedal or modeler can touch that EVH flanger sound, but the Axe is the closest I've heard, it's basically 99% there.

    How do you rate Axe-Fx 3 effects vs Eventide and other high end stuff?

    I think Fractal can pretty much emulate any effect with proper tweaking. The only thing that IMO it can't quite get the full vibe of is the Eventide Micro Pitch algorithm or "detune." But it might can with in-depth tweaking that I don't understand how to do. Like if you hear EVH using that patch...

    Yeah, sounds like garbage with the Axefx. What is odd is they actually sound good when running distortion pedals into them, but the Fractal stuff just doesn't jive with them. What kind would you recommend that doesn't break the bank? I keep hearing Yamahas are good.
