I use it as a mute switch, plus I prefer the polyphonic tuner to others. I’ve been using it for nearly a decade and it’s always been on my board. It makes for quick tuneups between songs.Cool, pretty much the same for me but curious why the polytune vs the FM3 tuner?
I'm totally new to the modeling world, so thanks to everyone for posting, helps me out a lot and it's interesting as wellMy basic setup is as follows.
FM3 layout 2 is set as the startup layout, which I've set up as follows:
The first external switch will change the layout from 2 Scenes to 1 Presets, which I've set up as follows:
- Switch 1: Scene 1; no hold function - GREEN
- Switch 2: Scene 2; no hold function - YELLOW
- Switch 3: Scene 3; no hold function - RED
The second switch is a stand in with tap tempo and tuner.
- Switch 1: Preset -1 (limited to 400-432, wrap). Hold for -10.
- Switch 2: Preset +1 (limited to 400-432, wrap) Hold for +10.
- Switch 3: Return to layout 2.
The expression pedal is external 1. This will be a wah, volume or whammy, depending on the preset/scene.
I run stereo over XLR to two RCF NX12s. XLR THRUs on these go to the mixer/PA. I'd like to switch to some smaller monitors.
A few presets use only one scene. These have per-preset effects programmed for switches two and three in the scene layout.
Did you use a software editor to create this graphic of your upcoming board? It looks greatMy rig will be pretty simple.
Guitar -> TC Electronic PolyTune -> EV-2 -> FM3 -> Matrix FR10 or IEM’s / FOH
I may add a few switches for additional functions, but I’m pretty confident that the three switches will do everything I need.
I’ll probably end up picking up a Temple DUO 17 board. I measured everything out and the PolyTune, EV-2, and FM3 will fit perfectly with the option of adding a dual switch box.
