    Potential FM3 purchase

    Not really my case so I never made the numbers myself but... if more switches (FC6) are a must, I'd be also checking the FM9 as pricewise they might be similar options. Pros: more processing power, all-in-one package. Cons: availability (potentially long waitlist), less modularity, slightly...

    Scene changes - amp channels and audio gaps?

    This. You actually offer the Axe FX which is capable of this, so the option is on the table for those who absolutelly need it. It was like this in the analog age, and it is still today in the digital age: for perfect seamless switching, you need to pay for 2x the power. 50% of that power will...

    Scene changes - amp channels and audio gaps?

    Doesn't matter. Amp sim runs in a different core not shown in the CPU meter. Wild guess, but chances are that CPU usage of an additional amp block running in the FX core would spend far more than 50% of the CPU.

    Scene changes - amp channels and audio gaps?

    Being the only guitarrist in my band I normally cannot afford any gap when switching. Therefore, a good part of preset design time goes into routing for seamless scene switching. That being said, I am totally surprised to read this: I never had any problem designing seamless switching scenes...

    Axe-Fx overriding tone characteristics?

    Axe-Fx overriding tone characteristics?

    I think this was not the case in this particular discussion. I said that I do not have a clue if guitar differences are smaller through the Axe Fx.

    Absolutelly not. I stand 100% behind my point. The way you're chosing your words seem to imply that there is some "magical" feature in the "analog world" that cannot be replicated in the digital domain. I don't know if this is your case, but when thinking about sampling, many people picture...

    FM3 Firmware Version 3.02

    Thanks for looking at it as well. I tried that approach when 3.01 was out and the CPU improvement was marginal, definitelly not enough to render the preset stable again.
  20. Lohengrin

    FM3 Firmware Version 3.02

    Thanks for looking at it! I'm not sure if that would copy Out 1 L to Out 2 L. I thought inserting the Out2 overrides Out1 copy. Will check later. Anyway, I don't think that would free enough CPU to make the preset stable. As soon as delays kick in in scene 5, it would probably become unresponsive.

    FM3 Firmware Version 3.02

    Sure, I know that this preset is pushing the limits and this kind of CPU usage is quicksand. I was just asking because it worked perfectly on 1.06.

    FM3 Firmware Version 3.02

    The long run of shunts sends the clean input signal to Out 2 R while sending an almost-mono pre-delay mix to Out 2 L. I use the clean signal to feed a pitchblack tuner (easier to see on stage) and the "mono" mix to feed IEMs mixer.

    FM3 Firmware Version 3.02

    Here it goes. This particular one is frankly quite stuffed and it's doing a couple of weird things with output 2 to allow some creative routing, but it worked like a charm for months with 1.06. I can probably save 1% or 2 to squeeze it in but that would mean losing some kind of functionality...

    FM3 Firmware Version 3.02

    This FW still can't reliably handle some of my CPU-intensive patches made in 1.06. UI freezes completely. Rolling back to 1.06. The worst part is that since the initial preset is always the last one loaded, when I load one of these presets for testing then I'm near bricking the device: UI...

    For those that have an Axe-Fx III and an FM3

    I seem to remember there is actually a shorter gap in the AFXIII vs FM3. However, for seamless switching the key feature in the AFXIII is the ability to have more blocks (two amps, several drives) in order to arrange two separate signal paths and perform scene changes with bypass/MUX/Mixer...

    FM3 "Base Load" CPU use and "Upper Load" CPU use seem *very* high - is this likely to be addressed (?)

    Sure man, no prob, that's understandable. Translating 20%-80% to 0-100 has been proposed by some, but that could spawn additional problems since CPU % is not something static. I think you can get some answers in the link I gave above. Like with any other device, it's better to understand how...

    For those that have an Axe-Fx III and an FM3

    Yep, that's it. Two amp blocks working at the same time. This can be useful for combining them for a particular combined (stereo) tone, or for a totally seamless transition between two different amp models (switching models inside a single amp block takes a split second gap).
  32. Lohengrin

    For those that have an Axe-Fx III and an FM3

    I got both too. If budget and portability are not an issue, the answer is easy. IMHO, the FM3 would be enough for many average use cases though. However, AF is a must for: 1. Tone chasing: FM3 is not capable of dual amps, ultra-res, new drive algorithm, tone match, extremelly long FX chains...

    Input gate or gate block ?

    I use a Drive-Gate-Amp chain so as to rise signal level with drive and block undesired palm mute tails with gate before entering the amp for an ultra-tight metal sound. It is similar to sidechaining but I've found that (for me) this scheme is easier to control.

    Yep, it was a bit of work copying the connections to the 12-14 presets I used live.
  36. Lohengrin

    Is it possible to set each single L and R Output to it's own independent source?

    It's been a while since I've been using this scheme, but I seem to remember it was working as intended: In this preset, Out2 L is "almost" a copy of Out1 (bypassing the enhancer) and Out2 R is a copy of the input.

    Different delay scenes

    How do you make this thick heavey (tight) djent sound in DAW with Axe-Fx 3 in your music?

    FracPad...updates about the Bluetooth required for the unit?

    Great job! Still no hope of using the USB connection for wireless, right? I need the MIDI input for receiving PCs from the sequencer, so I cannot use the MIDI-BT adapter there. I was investigating wireless print servers for a while but it didn't seem easy.

    Switching from the II to the III - Motivations/Satisfaction

    I was by chance back to the Axe II today trying to replicate some of the sounds I have on the III, and was surprised at "how easy" it is to hit the CPU limit with complex setups. I never realized that before, I guess I've progressively grown used to the sheer amount of CPU in the III. Truth is...

    Only using FAS for studio work, is going from AF2 to FM3 advisable?

    In my case, sound quality was not enough of a reason on its own to justify the transition to the new generation. For me, the biggest difference would be that I feel it’s much easier to arrive to the tone I want. However, don’t be tricked into thinking the FM3 is an AxeFx III. It’s generally...

But I was planning to get the FM3 as a portable companion to the II XL. At some point of the road I ended needing a second device and...

    FM3 Now Shipping

    Basically, it is 100% true that there are no commitments from Fractal to any timeframe and I'm also 100% sure they are trying their best not only to roll off the FM3 as fast as possible, but also to have the most efficient and fair communication policy for all of us. That being said, while...

    TFW you forget how much pick choice affects tone

    Fair enough. Agreed on the robot to 100% accurately characterize pick influence in tone (although that would take out of the test a potential player-pick interaction factor). There could be other methods such as averaging which probably do not make a lot of sense in this context. However, my...

    Axe-Fx 3 Sounds Different When Recorded

    Only when recording or also on playback? Turn off monitoring in DAW? Different sample rates?
