FM9 Edit

FM9-Edit is a full-featured Mac/PC editor. You can create, view, edit, and manage presets and scenes — and much, much more.

While almost every aspect of the FM9 can be edited easily using the intuitive front panel controls, nothing is faster than working on a large monitor with a keyboard and mouse/touchpad.

View entire presets at a glance, edit blocks and parameters, copy/paste, drag and drop, and more. Speed your workflow with Templates, or use the Library to access favorite settings in one click. Easily set up all aspects of onboard footswitches or a connected FC Controller.

Unlock the full creative potential  of your FM9 with FM9-Edit, available below for free.
