I thought one of the two chips from the old fm9 was shared between the fm3. Looks like it was just the UI and systems chip. Nothing impacting modeling and dsp.Unlikely unless supply is constrained. The FM3 is a bit different because they also want to maintain its price as low as possible to serve as an entry level device.
I get hesitant buying gear now, especially digital, because every time I do they release a new better version the next day.
Maybe I'm cursed. Just you watch, when I buy an EVH 5153, they'll announce the 5154.
How "much" DSP does something like this have over the helix floor unit? I realize it can't be quantified this simply, but if someone could explain like I'm 5 that'd be great. I literally max out every helix preset veeeery quickly.
Yeah I like big patches with snapshots and lots of poly/pitch/DSP hungry effects, I hate the delay between Preset switches so I just try to keep it all in one.I'm sure someone knows the actual answer, but it's a moot point because none of these companies are utilizing the chips the same way. One company has all amp modeling on one chip, effects on another, some mix it up, some algorithms use up more CPU than another, etc.
I've never used a Helix or know anything about their processing, but are you mainly doing big ass kitchen sink preset?
If you manage to max out full Helix presets easily then you are most likely doing something excessive like trying to run too much of a kitchen sink setup in one preset or not utilizing the dual paths effectively.How "much" DSP does something like this have over the helix floor unit?
