    Looks like everything major that was lacking in the AX8 (headphone out, USBaudio, full Ares UI has been addressed here. Looking forward to seeing the stellar lineup of shredders have a go at it this weekend!

    I have lots of questions about it (for example, what's that type A USB for?) but maybe it's better to let the dust settle after the blast.
    Congratulations Fractal guys, it looks like a well thought product, looking forward to see the FM6 ;)

    Sweet! Can't wait to see it in person this weekend! I see it has FAS Link so I'm assuming we could use it with an FC-12 or 6?

    Cool!

    Will the FAS Link power the first FC connected to it or will that FC need to be powered as well?

    I'm really curious how the FM3 will work with the FC6.... I'd love to have something setup where the FC6 can display 6 switches for scenes, effects etc, and the FM3's 3 switches give direct access to different layouts, almost turning the two units into a FC9..... Or maybe 3 scene switches on the FM3 and then the FC6 could have preset and bank up/down etc, again giving more options on the fly by adding the extra switches.... really excited how cool two controllers could be together, and how nice it would be to have the option of just taking the FM3 for smaller gigs, or add the 6/12 when needed etc....
