    2nd song in 14yrs....FM3 Princeton only

    Hey everyone... So here's my 2nd songwriting attempt. This one is called Tease. It's a bit less emotional than the 1st song, but still turned into a fun rock tune. I am by no means a lead guitar guy...so go easy on the solo. :p. I might also add a bit of bgv on the chorus. Let me know what...

    White Noise XLR

    Hi all! I'm new to this forum and have been enjoying the FM3. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced white noise/sound interference when hooking up the FM3 via XLR to an audio interface? I'm on the updated firmware 3.0 and running into a UA Apollo Twin. Cheers!

    Preset list view in the MasterLayout

    Hi I'm coming from the AX8, I sold it and buy the FM3, this journey has been very difficult because FM3 is so different that the AX8 system, I think we lose the ability to see in the screen the effects block, the scenes and the effect like the AX8, the screen always show the profile name on top...

    Gig bag with a big pocket for FM3

    As the title suggests - what are the options? I think I looked all over internet, and the closest to what I want to get is Gator Pro-Go. I would buy it right away, but not sure if FM3 will actually fit in that pocket. Do anyone of you have this gig bag to check this out?

    MIDI with FM3

    A total noob when it comes to MIDI, so pls bear with me. I’m contemplating to add a MIDI controller such as Morningstar MC6 to my FM3 to allow for more control without buying a FC6 (love it but quite expensive). My question is: would the MIDI controller “know” in what preset you are on the FM3...

    [solved] Per-preset lay-out

    Have had my FM3 for a week now, coming from AX8. On the AX8 I had a preset set up specifically for each song (pretty much), with specific effects / scenes / XY switching / control switches etc. assigned to particular footswtiches. Moving to the FM3, I decided to try and bring it down to ca. 5...

    FS For Sale: FM3

    I've had my FM3 for a couple weeks now and even though it sounds amazing, I feel like it's a little too much for what my current needs are so I'm thinking about parting with it. I don't have the original packaging anymore but I'm sure I can work out what you'd be comfortable with (box with...

    FM3 and real amp blind test

    I started messing around with my amps and the FM3, and did a blind test just for fun. I'm also gonna do one with my Marshall Bluesbreaker combo. Used the same cabinet IR for both amps, with the real amp loaded down with a Suhr Reactive Load. Changed some "components" on the Fractal Soldano...

    Fixed FM3-Edit failing to reconnect after computer sleeps

    I'm on an iMac Pro running Big Sur 11.0.1, FM-3 Edit 1.02.00, and FW 2.00 - beta 1, and an FC-6. When the iMac voluntarily sleeps for an hour or more (maybe less even), FM-3 Edit is no longer communicating with the FM-3. The interface is alive, but it won't tell the FM-3 to do anything like...

    XLR Switch box for FM3?

    I have two monitors connected to my FM3 XLR's outputs. I also have an FRFR that I like to connect when reheasing. So, the monitors I connect when recording and the FRFR for everything else.
