    From the Fractal Forum:


    WAIT LIST POLICY
    If you're currently on the wait list for an AX8, we will automatically transfer your request to the FM3 in the order in which it was received.

    If you want to join the waitlist for the FM3, send an email to [email protected] with the subject line “FM3 Wait List” to reserve your unit in the USA or Canada
    .
    For waitlist requests in other countries, please contact your local Fractal Audio Systems dealer with the understanding that we have not yet provided our dealers with any dates.

    PS: If you'd like to see the new FM3 in person, visit Axe-Fest at the Boston Amp Show this weekend! (April 27-28)


    Price seems to be $999 (Direct)


    Excerpt from the PDF:

    The FM3 features ARES Amp Modeling—the latest technology developed by Fractal Audio for the award-winning Axe-Fx III. ARES captures the subtle sonic characteristics of real tube amps, with 265+ models offering an impressive range of clean tones, elusive “edge of breakup”, and everything from warm, touch-sensitive overdrive to face-melting modern distortion.

    The FM3 also includes the entire speaker cab impulse response (“IR”) collection from the Axe-Fx III, with a stunning 2,200+ “Factory” choices and 2000+ “User” locations to store custom sounds from free or commercial packages. As a multi-effects unit, the FM3 includes a superb selection of Fractal Audio’s state-of-the-art effect algorithms: dazzling drive pedals, dozens of delays, reverbs, compressors, EQs, modulation effects, a looper, and more.


    Like other Fractal Audio processors, the FM3 uses “Presets” built from “Blocks” on a “Grid” (4x12). Eight “Scenes” per preset can engage or bypass effects, switch effect “Channels”, adjust levels, and more. Fractal Audio’s flexible “Modifier” system enables easy real-time sound changes with onboard or remote controllers, switches or expression pedals. A precision full-screen tuner, two global equalizers, and a convenient Tap Tempo function are also built-in.

    Guess they saw the HX Stomp and decided they needed something more portable and lower in price.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    I'm already on the waitlist. For $999 with AxeFX III modeling, why not? That's a killer box. I'll just flip the HX Stomp, and hope this fits in the same spot on my modeler board.

    EDIT

    Also, people like this can go fuck themselves. Buy something because it fits your needs when you buy it; not because you're concerned about flip value.

    What if your needs are to be part of the scene and have the latest flavour of the month bullshit at all times?

    Agreed in concept but is the HX Stomp doing that well? I see very few of them out in the wild.

    I almost bought an AX8 last December but then started thinking that I was buying old tech (among being bigger than I liked and no headphones out) and something new would probably come out. Wasn't expecting it this soon and being even more portable and with Headphones out, It's what I wanted first place

    There's no info on the price that I have seen for Europe. European website doesn't even show it. Most certain I will get one around summer time.

    Dont need it, but I want it
