Thank you!...
Amp block dynamics page is showing Input Dynamics which AFAIK isn't supported on FM3(yet).

Hmmm, I'm unable to download it here. On Windows10 (20H2) keep getting the following error. I disabled virus protection and still get the same error. Anyone else? No problem with anything else just this specific file.
Here's the error:

Michael - the quality of the editors are amazing. Consistent across platforms, perfectly designed, making it a breeze to create - which after all is the goal.
they are like perfect tools to a sound designer’s palette, while the modeller is the paint and canvass.
I just want to express my sincere admiration and thanks for continuing to create these amazing tools.
Thank you!

Looks like the problem was the Microsoft Edge Browser here v90.0.818.66 since it doesn't happen with the Chrome browser. My fault, the newest Edge browser version (90.0.818.66) also allows you to over ride it, but they changed the option location so I didn't find it right away.

I was actually going to chance it and try out Cygnus without FM3-Edit today as I am not that good at operating the unit from the front panel. I basically lean on FM3-Edit for everything. But dude, on a Saturday? Support doesn't get better than that!! Congrats and much thanks to Cliff and the whole FAS team! I am thoroughly grateful for their hard work!!!!

Time to jam with some Cygnus goodness!
 
I found a few possible bugs:
  • On the amp block, the input dynamics gain meter is stuck at -9.1dB (I thought that the FM3 didn’t have the input dynamics control?)
  • On the amp block, the speaker drive gain meter is stuck at -6dB regardless of how the speaker drive and speaker compression controls are set
  • The bottom of the preset leveling window is truncated:
