Dein Englisch ist besser als mein Deutsch....First post, so hello everyone.
Would be great if we could receive some information regarding the use of 4 cable method with FX only? Does it work as good as the FX8?
Asking because I had more than just a struggle fighting crazy noise using a G-System. Spent about 800€ to eliminate all noise to find out that the tonesuck was pretty bad. So I sold it and never tried a multiFX again until I heard a FX8 ‚out in the wild‘ a couple of weeks ago. The FX8 seems hard to find in Germany and of course… the FM9 seems to be fantastic. First device since years that really started my GAS.
Just in case it matters: I play (and love) an EVH 5150 50w.
Please excuse my hopefully not that bad english and thanks in advance.
I believe the FM9 shares the "humbuster" feature on the jacks one would use for the 4CM which are present in the big AxeFX3 rack unit. People who have the actual unit are present in this thread, though, so better to defer to their knowledge than my beliefs. The humbuster setup goes a long way toward the elimination of noise and hum from ground loops.
You might find yourself enjoying the amps modeled in the unit also. The Cygnus modeling is quite good.
