    So I am going to go with an FM3 in the loop of an FM9

    Well it's about time! Who ever he is he did a fantastic job!

    Just a curious question!

    I like this idea and can't imagine it not being a possibility! A module of some sort that is light and fairly compact that gives you the option of say 4-6 extra ports that can be configured how you see fit.

    Just a curious question!

    This! Until I actually read up on it and saw others posting about this issue I was under the assumption that it was going to be a no brainer! 2 expression pedals and two button external switching and my reason for posting up the question. Not to complain but to understand the mind set as to...

    Just a curious question!

    I’m hopeful that it is a firmware fix! I would like to make use of the 2 button switch I already have! If not I suppose I will have to grab a single button box to swap it out for.

    Deadpool’s FM9 Review

    Well you have the backup rig covered Ha! I have been playing with the idea of adding an a tube amp as a backup. I have been looking at the REVV D20 or the Suhr PT15 I/R just because of the Reactive load and I/R capabilities. The money difference between these two is crazy but as far as I know...

    Just a curious question!

    First off this is not a gripe, So after reading up on the features of the FM9 I realized after noticing that it only had 3 pedal ports that each of the pedal ports could run either an expression pedal or a single button switch. The FM3 had the ability to run 2 switches in each port and was...

    Does the FM9 devalue the FM3 on the used market?

    That sounds like FAS gear! We all know it's that good and apparently so do a lot of others!
  23. Sixstring

    Does the FM9 devalue the FM3 on the used market?

    I think FAS gear has traditionally held 75-85% of it's value in the used market place. For the latest gear that always depends on how used it is. I know I have a cream puff getting ready to hit the forum Soooon!

    FM9 -- I'll Miss the Rhino Bars

    Don't know, but thats what I'm talking about. If it isn't out there make it! Just like Cliff did with FAS! He wanted a better sounding rack mount guitar processor so he made one. A small button like what we are talking about can't be that hard to design and have it made.

    FM9 -- I'll Miss the Rhino Bars

    The typical style knob yes! but nothing that a good design process couldn't overcome! Mil-spec PCB's and other robust design implementations have been done in the past with FAS products, this idea isn't any different. It just needs to desire to do it and that is what is missing for this...

    FM9 Wishlist

    The only wish I had/have is dimmable LED's for input and status! I tried the dimming LED tape and that didn't stick very well. So If that's still not a possible or reasonable request then a chunk of gaff tape will have to do until something better comes along!

    I used to think the modularity was going to be perfect for me. Thing is I haven't ever needed to seperate them and I like the added features of the FM9! and it doesn't take up any more real estate then what I have now so I will be moving to the new platform.

    If you look at the pickups on the Elite they were single coil type but they had a ghost coil under the pickguard to help cancel out hum. Other than that I don't think there was anything else that you can do with the Varix settings other than setting it up like a single coil guitar. It's the...

    Rush presets?

    I'm tweaking on the Lime lite preset it's got a great starting point for the base tone. The effects were a tad wet and I had to pull back on the gain for the drive a little and it totally works with minimal adjustments. @M@, Great work on that one!

    For the Kings X stuff he uses the Axe FX for effects! I believe he might be using the Axe for his solo projects!

    King's X...Amp and IR?

    It depends on what era of his tone you are after! A lot of the tones he does now are suggestive and not a recreation for the simple fact that it would be impossible to run every piece of gear that he has used over the years on tour.

  65. Sixstring

    King's X...Amp and IR?

    I'm sure it might have something to do with the fact that his original Lab L5' power section broke which contributed to the flavor so he would have to give his prized iconic amp to FAS to be modeled I doubt Ty would do that.

    FM Speculation thread!

    I still like the modularity of this unit and I think that is what makes it so great! That doesn't mean a different version wouldn't be a great idea. Makes me wish I had the extra cash as I would mash up an Axe FX III with an FC-12! I think the outcome would be nothing short of perfect!
  67. Sixstring

    King's X...Amp and IR?

    If you mess around with the PEQ say 500k and bump it 8db that might get you a little closer. You will have to play with the Q, not sure how wide or narrow it is in the actual presamp.
  68. Sixstring

    King's X...Amp and IR?

    Try this preset! it's not totally finished but you did post that you were looking for the early tones! The other thing you need to consider is his guitars. He did use the preamp section from the Elite series Fender guitar. So Pre EQ is a major factor coupled with the Lab series sound. I don't...

    Yes! Ty had the Egnater TB30 module tewaked to get the early Lab series tones when he was running his M4 rig. It's starting point for sure to get the jangely vibe. The heaver tones need the Recto and Marshall variants to get you there. The rest is of his sound is in the guitar preamp (Fender...
