    It's 2021 and the FC-12 display still looks like garbage

    I have been doing some research on going the RJM route . If Fractals Control Switches had midi implantation via RJM I would jump ship. Since I use those a lot I'm settling for the FC route . I've had many midi controllers over the years and the FC's are a beautiful solution , hope the future...

    It's 2021 and the FC-12 display still looks like garbage

    I have been assigning the switches on my FC-6 and FC-12 to match as much as possible the colors that are used in Axe-edit. Gives it more continuity . I too have tried to match the same physical locations on the board to make it easier. Raised my concerns here on the scribble strips since they...

    Control Switches on RJM Mastermind GT Yes or No ?

    I'm thinking of going with the RJM route since my eyes can't handle the FC displays while standing . I thought I read somewhere that the Masterminds don't support internal CS's ( Control Switches ). I use them for various things on my FC-12 . Can anybody confirm or deny that capability ?

    No longer have the amp.. had an "authorized " Fender amp repair done to correct "popping" . Corrected it somewhat but was still troublesome.
