    Is it me or the sound guy?

    If he couldn't take care of it at FOH then I would think you need a hotter signal or more mids? If your output configuration is on -10 you might switch it to +4.

    On talk shows they have tube amps up in back but still are using Axe FxIII's. The white cabs were Mesa for James and Randall for Kirk. The Jimmy Kimmel show they had the Axe fx up way in front with the camera crew and on the Stephen Colbert show they had them just up front on the side.

    Maybe your FM3 through the tube amp is too loud for him and he's trying to keep up? Did you guys discuss the balance you hear in the room? If he started doing this after you started using that setup he is either hearing you more and turning up or he's jealous.

    Toggling Scenes.... a glitch or a feature?

    This could make it either more confusing or help to achieve what some of us have been talking about. Re-label your scene names so they are the opposite. That way its says in the scribble the name of the scene that you are on.

    Maybe inverted wasn't the right word or I wasn't clear. On my Axe3 rig with my FC-12 showing all scenes, I push the one I need and can see the name of it. On the FM3, when you toggle two scenes on one button you get what the scene is if you were to push it and not what scene you are currently...
