    AF in studio: any benefit from mic pre's?

    I don't think using a mic pre is important ad can defeat the work on your presets, unless you program it with that in mind. I did a recording session a few years ago with an engineer who just didn't get it. He refused to listen to me, assuming he knew best and put all of his Neve pres on the...

    Ring Modulator won't bypass

    I finally got it to recognize the software editor but ring modulator still doesn't respond. I have PC On. I've also tried off. I've tried various default numbers, if I'm understanding you correctly. But I noticed I had pedal 3 selected but I changed it to pedal 2. It's working. Thanks.

    Ring Modulator won't bypass

    Hm. I keep getting a timeout with FM3 Edit. I've tried plugging the USB cable directly into the computer instead of the hub. This I assume is the real problem. I'm looking for a different cable. But I have been using this same cable to plaug into keyboards.

    Ring Modulator won't bypass

    I have it plugged in now. However on my xe III, which this preset came from, I can have the pedal plugged in or not and I can still bypass it. Regardless of the scene selected where it is bypassed on the FM3 there's simply no way I can see to turn it off, pedal or not.

    I always put this to on. Maybe something got lost in the process.

    Ring Modulator won't bypass

    I do have a pedal assigned and not plugged in yet. Could that be it? On my other Fractal devices I can still bypass it even though there's a modifier attached.

    Dumb problem - Bank up or down changes preset. What did I do?

    Dumb question. Scrolling up or down banks in the FC-12 changes presets rather than just let me look and maintin the curret preset. This didn't used to do that. What did I change? Obviously I did something worng. One big change is Im chaining a FC6 to the 12. Thanks.

    How do I distinguish two FM3's in FM3-Edit?

    Yeah, I got it. It doesn't take long but no. I have DAWs running and all kinds of apps going. To log out and log into another account just to use FM3 Edit seems excessive. But I could have it on a networked computer or virtual machine. That still seems excessive. I'm on a new Mac Pro.

    I have two FM3s. The other one is for backup and a bass rig. But I want to load a bunch of bass presets in one and not the other. Is there some place I name them differently or are they distinguished by serial number? I plugged in #2 and it shows the presets in #1.

    It doesn't work for me. I'm going nuts. I have both FC-12 and FC-6. Is that the problem? Both are 1.11. The manual says "Page to the Remote page of the FC Controllers menu under SETUP. If you have more than one FC controller connected, select the desired Target FC unit using the A knob. "...

    Why are we chasing the amp in the room sound?

    That's cool. I still prefer the air of the room. Now keep in mind what I'm talking aout isn't useable from the camera. But that's more the way I am hearing it when I play and how I'm expecting to hear it recorded. But there's also the blended actual guitar in the room sans amp. Plus since...
  83. henryrobinett

    Why are we chasing the amp in the room sound?

    It always seemed to me most live and recorded sounds used a mic sometimes at a slight distance. There's always a room sound. In the Axe Fx it's direct and sounds unnatural to me like that. That's why I have to apply reverb and delay, other than just for effect. But what really burned my...
