    Effects toggle/layout question

    Hello! Quick question I'm hoping someone can help me out with! I am using an FM3 with a FC6 in OMG9 and for the most part, absolutely love it. My question: how do I reroute the hold functions for the effects layout? When I hold the Effects button down, it brings me to a looper which is not in...

    Implemented kill dry for "parallel" effects

    hi, i often use reverb, delay, and pitch in parallel. the problem is that currently to use a effects in parallel you have to put the mix at 100% and use the volume knob to set the mix, otherwise your have a jump in volume. also if you use a delay for example in parallel you cannot use the global...

    Wish Lo-fi pedals, cabs, mic and delays

    As it seems, I am a black metal musician, but I also play most metal genres and random noises. I'd like to see some really poor and low quality sound coming from the Axe FX III. Talking about cabs and mics, anything that someone could buy for 50$ in a chinese store. Most norwegian raw black...

    Import effects

    Hi all, new to Fractal and just got an FM3. Been working with it a few days. My friend sent me some reverbs that I'd like to import, but can't figure out how. I learned how to import cab IRs. The reverbs, like the cab IRs were .wav files, which I converted to .syx files. But I'm not having any...

    Fm3 as Cab Simulator

    Hi everyone! My question is: Does anyone know if I could use my Fm3 just as a cab simulator with a real head (I think maybe it depends on the head having a line output)? I'm not sure that can be done, I think not. But if possible I would like to use my head with a real 212, the fm3 for effects...

    Help recreating the sound of the Julia/Julianna

    Hi guys! I am finally parsing out my pedalboard, and I am now letting go of both my Walrus Audio Julianna and Julia. I LOVE these pedals to bits, but I am fully committing to the Axe. However, awesome as the chorus block is, I can't quite nail down that sound the Julia produces. It's so...

    The Mother of All Effects Blocks Thread (Multi-Model Edition)

    Now that we can mostly share effect channel and block settings among all the Fractal units I thought I'd start a new thread to house all your amazing effect block settings in one, single place. This thread is special. The same thread appears in all three (AFIII, FM9, FM3) Preset Exchange forums...

I tried connecting the pedal like this; Out 3 L --> Input of pedal --> output of pedal --> Input 3 L. This...

    Not a Bug FM3 showing effects not in preset

    Hi Everyone, Just got my FM3 last Thursday and I have been loving it so far, but I've noticed that it sometimes shows effects that are not in the preset. When I try to engage them it says "effect not in this preset". Additionally, it seems to not show other effects that actually are in the...

    Wish Controller Block Section Saving and Effects Block Connections

    The AxeFX has the ability to recreate many advanced effects racks and pedals, as well as generate amazing unique effect sounds. This ability to create advanced effects often relies on connections to controller elements (LFOs, Seq, ADSR, etc). This is a Workflow Improvement and Effects...

    How to Easily get a LoFi Sound On The Axe FX III (Or any Axe fx)

    My friend told me about this neat trick he does to get a LoFi sound (he plays a lot of pop punk) so I tried it out and decided to make a video about it. You can actually do it on almost any axe fx. What other ways do you guys get lofi sounds on the axe?

    Filter block uses

    I'm just wondering what some uses for the filter block are? I haven't put much time in to playing around with it (mostly because I'm not sure what to do with it), but I see it fairly often in presets. It seems pretty similar to an eq to me. Would love to hear how it can best be used. I've had my...

    Reverse Delay...sort of...possible?

    I am not talking about the audio coming out backwards with and no repeats (Belew-ish backwards guitar). What I would like to do is have regular forward delay, but the repeats start out quiet, and get progressively louder with each one. I don't want oscillation, but just for those repeats to stop...

    Oil Can Delay

    Hey, guys. I've been messing around with this patch for a bit and got it sounding pretty cool, so I'd thought I'd share it. It's meant to emulate the sound of an oil can delay. These delays are very warm, warbly, and just a yummy, gooey mess. I made a recording showcasing a couple different...

    Effect match- Doomblade by The Acacia Strain

    Looking to cover Doomblade by The Acacia Strain and need to match a couple of their effects. The first one is a pitch shift slash ring mod. Sounds like an electric drill held against the strings sliding from the bottom up. Really extreme. I have been able to create a pitch shift effect and...

    SOLVED. Effects staying on in scenes?

    hi everyone.. I have a FX8 with the latest firmware. I am using switches 5 - 8 to control scenes selections which are programmed to change channels on my amp using MIDI. Switches 1-4 are being used to turn on/off individual effects over the top of the amp channels. My problem is when I am on...

    SoO for all you producers out there I am curious if you record guitars using the axe-II effects (compressor, reverb, delay, pitch, chorus etc. and the like) or do you record dry (amp and cab only) and add effects in POST via pro-tools, logic etc. ? Feel free to explain your reasoning ok go!
