    Recently purchased an FM3 and noticed that it is always making a crackling type of sound, even when it is just taking a clean DI, although gain definitely makes it much louder. I have compared the fm3 signal to the sound of the same guitar and cable going through a Steinberg UR22 interface and...

    So I have the fm9 hooked up to Logic Pro x with a usb cable, and I have the sound coming out of desktop monitors as I play. After a few minutes of playing, the sound will be delayed by like 2-3 seconds after I play a note. I strum a chord on the guitar and i don’t hear it until a few seconds...

    Blackglass 7K Issue with Cygnus : no sound

    Hello there. I've been using a preset for metal bass since almost a year and it was fine by now. But since I upgraded the Axe to 16.02, I'm having a weird issue with the blackglass. When it's on, it's like almost no sound is coming out of it. It really fucked up my preset, and I need it sooo...

    Help!!!MFC IA Switch 1 acting up.

    I assigned IA1 to record on the looper as the only control for that button. For some reason when I’m on any other preset but preset 1, that foot switch returns me back to preset 1 and engages record simultaneously. I’ve checked button AI 1 for any additional CC# assignment and there are none...
