I got my FM9 purchase invite 10 days ago and was super excited when it showed up. Then I started really evaluating my FM3 to see where it was falling short for me and needed to be upgraded. At first, the extra processing power and foot switches seemed too good to pass up. But I decided to wait a few days (although I looked at the invite email a few times a day). Then a week passed and I had almost forgotten about it. When I thought about how I was going to actually use the FM9, I realized that it was just more for the sake of being more. The FM3 just does everything I need it to and is a great size, so I’m passing on the FM9. True story. I’m just sayin!
