    FM3 volume setup

    I am using the FM 3 guide to try and setup a global volume on my FM3. Manual says go to setup/midi remote, step 2 is “ then navigate to input 1,2 or output 1,2.” That is not a choice in the window. Scrolling down gets me to ext control 1,2,3 etc which gets me nowhere. Any ideas? Maybe the...

    Not a Bug Lag when using looper being triggered by external midi controller ( MC6 )

    So basically I noticed that when I use the MC6 to trigger the looper, I always seem to be “late”. And you can hear a clear pop between the loops.
