First we had the mighty AX8. People are still using it and loving that one, understandably. Then came the FM3 with its Axe-FX III looks and Cygnus firmware. Again, very popular. Now we have the FM9. Some might call it the “Goldilocks” product. I sure do! The FM9 has four DSP cores making it the most powerful floor processor Fractal Audio have ever built. Add the nine completely customisable footswitches, hundreds of presets and user slots, hundreds of amp blocks (you can have two per preset each with four channels); thousands of IRs, expandable control, FM9-Edit… Let’s just say there are a lot of good reasons to want an FM9, not least its industrial-strength build and future-proof upgradeability. I love it! I expect you probably will too.
