Obsolete or outdated means a lack of full functionality due to the arrival of a new model. That's all. No unnecessary emotionNone of your replies in that thread explain what you think obsolete means. It means no longer in use or no longer useful. The FM9 is new and lacks the power and features of the Axe-Fx III MKI, so obviously the MKI isn't obsolete or outdated.
Ask yourself which iPhone model is outdated for you compared to version 13? 12,11,10,9,8,7,6s? You will install the latest software on each of them. However, they are not all the same.
The guitarsrule explained it perfectly.
To everyone, obsolete or outdated means something different, and I understand it. For me, after the appearance of a new model, equipped with a new faster processor (of the same family, of course) and with more memory, it means that the previous one is outdated.
And that doesn't mean MK1 is bad (how many times have I already written this). He's great.
But still, the answer to the question in the subject line for me is yes.
FM9 is immediately devoid of the illusion of perfection. When we buy it, we know it and we decide to do so. It will be bad to expect from FM9 what the FXIII MK2 Turbo offers. But it is obvious.
Someone has already written it here:
You want maximum power and capability - get the MKII Turbo
You want live music and mobility - choose FM3 or FM9.
Do you have MK1?
