FM3-Edit 1.05.00 public beta 1

I have long wanted to be able to save individual channels in a block and I am totally happy that this function has now been added - thank you very, very much!
I noticed another inconsistency:
I saved a 'fixed wah' and loaded it into another wah block - the assigned controller of the other three wahs was deleted!
I understand that, since you can select either all or a specific channel in the 'Edit Modifier' window, but it would be more convenient if this function were available for not just one, but also two or three channels!

I don't know if this is a "feature" or a bug but double clicking the speaker page settings will not reset them to what is the default for the amp model but instead to something else. Using amp model defaults for doubleclick resets would be better to me.

Recognize a little bug.
Sometimes UI does not refresh in a proper way when switching presets or other stuff.
Grid only showing empty block frames and shunts missing.
Switching preset up or down and back or reopen Edit solves it.
Never had this with older Edit versions.
Using 4 Beta 5 firmware.
Same computer and USB port.
Windows 10.
No updates or driver's changed.

Firmware itself running fine.

Potential bugs report:

-When clicking on the Amp Block Library screen/tab, the folder blinks open then suddenly disappears.
-FC Controllers -> FC Config: Mini Display, Ring Intensity, & Bank Size knobs are very laggy, taking around 10+ sec to show the updated changes.

Quick example of the channel library in action.


I've got another one coming out tomorrow on the g66 channel with a few different examples too.
This is such a killer feature. Now I want to make Channel Library entries for a lot of stuff I dialed in. That makes building presets more like using Lego. A great option to have. Thanks a lot FAS

Leon, thanks for demonstrating! I would not have known about this feature if I didn't subscribe to your YouTube!

I really like this channel library as it's far more useful to me than saving four blocks. I will be able to use this feature much more now.

I'm assuming this is FM3 edit only, not available on the unit itself correct?

Current FM3 Firmware Version: 3.02

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

* Added editor name to the "Preset Leveling" window.

* Added "Swap" sub-menu to Scene Mgr's dropdown menu.

* Added "Copy >>" and "Copy <<" buttons to the Perform view which copy all the Per-Preset controls to the Global controls and vice-versa.

* Added "Clear Per-Preset" and "Clear Global" buttons to the Perform view which clear all the controls from the Per-Preset or Global section.

* Corrected a bug in the Perform View which showed "ghosted" labels from a previous preset where a control does not exist in the current preset.

* Corrected a bug in which the Perform View closed when displaying the Controllers or Setup parameters.

* Corrected GAIN meter for COMPRESSOR Studio types.

o "Save entire block" will save a block library entry as an entire block of all of its channels and modifiers. This is the "old" or "legacy" method.

o "Save only current channel" will save a block library entry containing only the currently selected channel. No modifiers will be saved. The icon of a quartered square with 1 central overlapping colored section denotes an entry saved as a single channel. Loading a channel entry will overwrite only the currently selected channel. Loading a channel entry into an empty grid space will insert a new block and load the entry into CHANNEL A.
Damn, did the engine get an upgrade or is my mind playing tricks, this sounds f**king amazing! Am I hearing things????

The editor doesn't create sounds, the hardware does.
I know that haha :tearsofjoy:, I meant the actual unit, have Fractal tweaked the software? Also, the Precision pedal seems to be reacting more like the real one! Or I may have just not been paying attention over the last fortnight.

When saving channels or entire blocks of controllers, the containing folder of these blocks library presets is called "unnamed".
I don't know if this is the normal behaviour or not.
I posted a thread with the same issue recently, with pictures:
