    Yes, I'd like to know why he thinks the headphone batch is almost sold out. I don't think he knows that at all, just guessing.
    Hang in there Dave! I'm hoping y'all make a quick recovery!

    XLR FASLINK cable

    -Is this necessary for connecting a FM3 & FC6/12?
    -Could you use a standard XLR cable instead?
    -If the FASLINK cable is necessary, can it be modded to be shorter? (I don't need 20ft for a 1ft run!)

    All that is need is a standard XLR cable.

    "FASLINK" is just their marketing term for the communication protocol.

    If anyone gets an invite for the headphone version and wants to pass, let me know and maybe we can work something out. I'm WAAAAYYY down the list.

    Good old fashioned optimism.

    I didn't notice "next Fall" -- so he is saying Fall 2021?

    He can say whatever he likes. No one knows given rapidly shifting current events.

    People on the FM3 waitlist (not the AX8 one that went first) first day, are now getting invites.
    The FB FM3 group has some confirmations there. They are at early in that day, fwiw.
    Progress is welcome.

    Given everything that its going on, its lost some criticality for me... all my shows are cancelled so a "ultimate portable rig" has cratered as a priority. My band doesn't even want to get together and I can't blame them, we rent a shared practice space which is normally awesome but right now just feels like a risk.

    Patently false.

    If anyone is wondering why representatives from Fractal Audio rarely post here anymore, well, this is precisely the reason.

    I would really encourage you to take the exact opposite mentality. It would help greatly to get the truth out on this forum. Running from places that may have people that say things you don’t like seems kinda silly IMHO.

    There's a huge number of Fractal fans here. I would encourage you to fight the good fight Cliff :drink

    Agreed. @cliffc8488, don't let disinformation keep you from interacting with TGP. I would hope you see from the healthy responses in this thread that a lot of people are rooting for y'all and are very excited about the FM3. We want to hear from you and @Matman!

    I dunno, given the amount of time he'd be spending just dealing with B.S. misinformation that is pretty easily correctable or unimportant, I'm fine if he just keeps plugging away at making the products the best they can be.

    I agree... why on earth would Cliff or any other FAS rep spend time on here at this point. Things have been ugly for months in this section of TGP and now you're asking for them to participate in the forums?

    I think they could use a PR person to handle it. A person that could be the online face like Frank is for Line 6. I don’t think you can down play the effectiveness of someone like who helps with your brands reputation.

    Nature abhors a vacuum, and "ugliness" and disinformation proliferates in radio silence. No one is asking for daily dispatches from the front (and if they were, the Fractal forum would be more appropriate for that anyway), but it pays to proactively communicate - wherever your customers (current and potential) are.

    Anyway, Cliff can run his business how he wants. These are just friendly and supportive suggestions that I believe would benefit Fractal way more than they would anyone here.
