    FM3 Firmware Version 4.00 beta 5

    You may wish to perform RESET SYSTEM PARAMETERS after installing this version if you are upgrading from a version prior to 4.00 beta 4. Remember: You can back up the complete set of FC layouts using FM3-Edit and re-import it after the reset.

    FM3 Firmware Version 4.00 beta 5

    FM3 Firmware Version 4.00 beta 5

    The chirping when Tap Tempo is on an active layout is gone with Beta 5. I never had "unusual" fan ramping behavior (well, with the FM3 fans - real life band "fans" is an entirely different story...)

    4cm lots of noise

    Hum-x took the hiss and him away with 4cm for me. Humbuster cables helped a bit, but the Hum-x made it silent like my pedalboards are, even with my normal non-humbuster 4cm snakes.

    Wish EDIT Button Cycle Order setting

    Hello, I'd like the ability to switch the on-device EDIT button behavior for repeated taps to step through all blocks in a left-to-right, top-to-bottom order as an alternative to the existing top-to-bottom, left-to-right order. This alternative order more closely maps to how blocks are laid...

    John Cordy: Is the FM3 under powered?

    FM3 Firmware Version 4.00 beta 3

    I've got the faint clicking too, when tap tempo is one of the footswitches. When I roll back to 3.0x it goes away. Roll forward and it's back. I am not experiencing unusual fan behavior

    Online Jamming

    New FM3 - Different Screen?

    Hi Greg! If you look at the second pic of this post (with the FM3 turned on) you should be able to see some blue "tint" or backlight wash on the right side (well, bottom the way the pic is oriented) of the screen- that I'm referring to. That's the way my previous two FM3s looked. It would...

    New FM3 - Different Screen?

    I just purchased and took receipt of a new FM3. I've owned two FM3s in the past, both with and without headphone jacks, that were sold to bandmates that I haven't seen in quite a while so I can't directly compare. The one I just received seems to have a different screen, with less/no backlight...

    What power amp do you use with your FM3?

    When all the clubs open back up in my state, most will have new owners. Seymour Duncan Powerstage 170, QSC K10.2, or Sennheiser IEM system if I'm not plugging my FM-3 in as an FX-only unit with my tube amps.

    Let's see those FM3 rigs!

    I also bought a Bumblebee, but I'm using it for my FC-6 and EV-2, because sometimes I will be using my FM-3 solo, and other times it will be back at my on-stage cab while the FC-6/EV-2 on Bumblebee will be up at the front of stage. Thanks Leon for the tip!

    Axe-Fx III tone/feel vs. Kemper?

    I've owned a few Kempers (head > rack > powerrack) and one thing that annoyed me for Live use is that one profile doesn't work through all the gain levels I wanted unless I wanted to rely upon pedals for gain.

    Axe-Fx III Running Temp?

    Axe-Fx III Running Temp?

    I stated "The Ox Top Box app reports its temperatures, so it’s not like this is an unprecedented request." Unprecedented, type it in google, and it will tell you right at the top: "never done or known before." My definition and usage are accurate whether you want to accept it or not.
  45. mixministermike

    Axe-Fx III Running Temp?

    Yup, which was my point. Another popular MI product reports its temperature, so it’s not like the OP’s request is a new idea. It’s been done before. I wasn’t saying every MI product should therefore report its temperatures because the Ox does.

    I strongly disagree that there is entitlement going on with this issue and the people involved.

    Not much love for bass regarding amps and effects?

    I've been pretty vocal about asking for more bass amps over the past few years. For studio and "pro" work, the Axe-FX platform delivers pretty much everything needed.

    Post Your Axe-Fx III Rigs Here!

    My 1Us had the loudest fans I've had in an electronic device. Louder than any amp fan I've had for sure. Of course at band volume I couldn't hear them, but at normal "studio" volume they sounded awful. My 2U is extremely quiet.
  62. mixministermike

    Post Your Axe-Fx III Rigs Here!

    Nice! How loud is that GT1000FX-1U? I have a 2U, when I tried the 1U a few years back the fans were very noisy, even after Andy swapped one out for me. Not "wooshy" or "airy" but whiney and resonant throughout the case.
  63. mixministermike

    If the III was 2U (or 1U!!!) I would have ordered one by now

    Any pedalboard runs a cable back to the amp - this is just a speaker cable instead of a normal TS. I have several 25'+ speaker cables, so other than the fact that the gauge might be different it seems to be normal operating procedure.

    Oh as a package, you're right. I'm only speaking to the amp models themselves - not the fx or cabs, where Helix is objectively more capable.
