Thanks @BryantP.
If we are on Beeta 3, do we need to move to official 1.06. Are there differences between the two ? I don't wont to refresh if there is no need :)
Thank you

Hey guys, eager to know if this fixes up some of the ongoing issues, and if this opens the doors to catching up with the Axe FX III in terms of firmware updates. I've got a III, but I'm getting tired of dragging it and the rack case and the FC-6 back and fourth between my 3rd floor and band practices multiple times a week. And I'm probably getting an FM3 invite this or next week and just taking the FM3 sounds like a nice change, and I think I'd get by with 3 footswitches easily enough. But it's a balancing act as I'd have to move away form kitchen sink patches and some of the growing pains in FM3 land are giving me pause.

Read the patch notes. As far as bridging the gap, maybe soon enough!

You could probably get by with the FM3. It's hard to tell people how to spend their money. There are return policies and there is a secondhand market if they don't work out for you.

That being said, the FM3 delivers on many different fronts but don't expect it to be the Axe Fx III when it's not. You can't just add every block like in the Axe FX III and expect it to work the same. Many of my presets have at least 7-9 blocks though.
