Let's see those FM9 rigs!

How did you mount it to the board? Did you use longer screws? If so which? Did you use the cables that come with the temple audio modules for the XLR?

I did have to order longer screws and washers to make it work, I got these from Amazon here:

Screws
Washer set

The XLR to TRS cables that came with the XLR module were long enough to use, that was the only module that came w/cables from Temple Audio.

I’m just using the FM9 for effects and tuning.
I’ve been putting together a simple rig and something funny happened. I like jazz so I have 3 fender amps…and was shaking my head thinking this is not what I want…then I remembered I had a Marshall JTM-45 re-issue head…plugged it into a 50 year old 15” JBL D-130F and voila, great! …didn’t expect it but you never know. The frosting on the cake though is the FM-9 and how easy to set up! Very happy…love the fm9!

My new H9 rig :) It still fits on top of the music stand I had my FM3 on. Still deciding if I need the H9; gotta get my presets all remade and try to get them sounding the same without the H9, we'll see.

I am very happy with the very inexpensive SOLUTEK toppers. They have rubber inserts that fit snug and the finish matches the FM9's casing:

Looks great but the H9 really looks out of place.. update us, my guess is you don't need the H9 only a FM9 now..
Happy Holidays 🎄

Ok, for real now:

This is a dry run of the 2 sections inside my Pelican Vault case (for which I've not yet cut the foam).

Here is the bottom view of the FM9.

I've got a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 being fed by a Temple IEC module. That powers the FM9 and the Audiofront Expression IO that's used for passing expression pedal input via midi to the FM9. The expression pedals are fed thru Temple passthru modules from the other board.

There are 3 momentary normally closed switches wired directly to TS jacks with bare 14g wire (from Romex - great idea from @Joe Bfstplk!) that are cabled to the FM9 with George Ls cables.

There are also 2 USB passthru modules for connecting my computer to the FM9 and Expression IO.

The Pedal Power 2 and Expression IO are attached with small Temple mounting plates. Everything else is directly thru the board:

And the expression pedal board:

Note that I relocated the input jacks on the 2 middle pedals to make 4 fit on the board:

Here's the other variation for the scenario that I decide to use my Axe Fx III - just swap the FM9 board for the FC-12 board.

This one is simpler - only the passthru module for feeding expression pedals into the FC-12:

God I wish I didn’t see this!
Whelp, back to the ole drawing board!
Seriously tho, that’s freaking clean. I love it. I was trying to fit every scenario on a single board and it got real heavy real quick. I think the modular design is the way to go! Thanks for posting….

I would start a fresh thread on this if I were you. Keep us posted regardless. Be interesting to hear your findings. Thanks!

Finally pulled my AX8 out of my pedal case and put the FM9 in there. Some pics showing how I mounted both units.

Is anyone using a 3rd pedal controller? I've got one connected, but haven't made any decisions as to how I'd assign it. Nor have I thought of what I'd do with a basic switch if I went that direction. There's so much that can be done using the FC system. Really well thought out.

Anyway, this is my basic bread & butter preset. I'm using input 1 & 2 so I can split my Parker's piezo & magnetic signals and route them as seen in the editor screenshot. Cheers
