I am having lock up issues with the FM3 and I recently added the FC6 and it's also acting the same as mentioned in this thread. Anyone figure this out?
Yeah, I've tried troubleshooting it in every way possible. At least I know it's not a hardware issue as this is my second brand new FC-6. Tried many different cables as recommended. I also use a Furman Power Conditioner to rule out any dirty power issues. Support has been totally on top of the issue and I know they are trying to come up with a solution. Hopefully there is finally a fix and soon. Can't get through a rehearsal without this locking up several times. Couldn't trust it for gigging. I sold everything from my previous live rig to get these Fractal units. The FM3 is absolutely amazing. Love the sounds and endless combinations. They nailed all that. But this is a deal killer if switching locks up.Unfortunately no solution here. Everyone says try different cables which may work for awhile but the problem eventually returns for me. Although support has been extremely willing to help, I'm very frustrated with the lack of a solution.
I have ongoing communication going with Fractal support on this. I'll post again once I get the latest response to whatever the fix could be.I did a gig last week and had it lock up 6 times. At home the next day I left it on for hours and couldn't get it to lock up. So weird. I also had a rehearsal with it since then and no problem there either.
Still waiting on a solution. Fractal plans to have me send back both my FM3 and FC-6 to troubleshoot further. Like other users have posted, I also have "random" lockup issues. I'll have a day where the FC-6 doesn't lock up or only does it once across an entire rehearsal. Or I'll have a night like last night where it literally locked up on every single song. I have to power down and power back up. Can't possibly use the rig this way. The randomness of the lockups has got to be a major factor in the difficulty with troubleshooting. I just keep trying to give the nice folks at Fractal as much detailed info as possible so they can find a permanent fix for everyone.Have you heard anything back on this yet? My FC-6 is getting power but not control. Very frustrating as I had to send the AxeFX back for a replacement DSP board, and now the foot controller isn't being recognized by the rack unit. I'd update the FC-6 firmware but the AxeFX doesn't even see it connected...
