    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...

    Wish Dimmable Output and status LED's

    As the title says! It would be nice though I don't see this as a fix on the current FM3 but maybe in future floor units it would be a REALLY nice option!

    FM3 hanging up after startup and switching

    Ok so I have noticed that after startup when I go to preset, effects or try to use the tuner the FM3 is no longer responsive to switch commands.

    Wish Selectable EQ for input Boost type

    I really like this feature of an assignable EQ style for the input boost but it would be even better if we had the option of a selectable EQ (like the EQ block) ie: 5,7,10 band or even a Parametric to place in that box! I don't think this is redundant otherwise why have EQ styles in there at all?
