    Coming from AFX3, all I need is one extra pedal for the FM9

    A Digitech Droptune pedal for minor tuning shifts. I like my Pitch block after distortion and parallel routed. Otherwise I would put th e pitch block first in chain for Virtual Capo. Using channels would be ideal, but the sound change is not worth it IMO. I have Wah. Comp, Amp1, Amp2, Cab...

    Rule of thumb when creating patches on AX3 for FM9?

    50% cpu seem to be the ideal ticket? Obviously using blocks that are in both. But as a practice? I want to keep Axe Fx 3 at house and FM9 at studio/rehearsal/live. I want to create on AX3 and dump onto FM9 via laptop. Ya dig?

    What "extra pedal" are you running with your FM9?

    With more loops than the AX8 and FM3, The FM9 allows me to control FOH volume, stage volume and also use 3rd loop for something fun. Ideas?
