This works great for doing Electric Wizard/King Crimson style vocal distortion.

How do you install this on FL, because everytime I put in in the effects folder in plugins, it says it cannot open it.

In FL Studio, the WAH pedal is always very distorted and does not work the way that it is intended to work. I use this over direct MIDI input, but the wah hasn't worked for any of it.

This is the ultimate "everything in one" VST for guitars. What kind of Amp do I want my computer to think I own? up to 6 effects, nice presets. Really sweet. Thanks Fretted Synth, this is my favorite VST by far. (I use FLStudio12

!!!FIXED CRASH ISSUE FOR FL STUDIO!!! Go to wrapping settings (that gear icon from the top left), go to processing and check the BRIDGED option for all the FA plugins. Enjoy!

Fix for free amp ... I was having crash issues using multi channels ... I copied directory with free amp 3 to /program files(x86)/Cakewalk/VstPlugin/name your directory ... copy all files representing the number of guitars ..example /program files(x86)/Cakewalk/VstPlugin/guitar1 /program files(x86)/Cakewalk/VstPlugin/guitar2 ... once I had a *.dll file for each guitar ... it ran fine ... no crash ...

Wonderful plugin. Bass, guitars (el and acc), keys - you name it. Works like charm on everything you toss it at, adding realism and analog feel.

This is a great pluggin, but I'm experiencing a major problem with it. I'm using OHM and FA3 works great when assign to a single track, but when assigned to two tracks it causes the program to crash. Any fixes? I'd love to keep using if possible.

Try increasing the cpu usage, probably accessable through the preferences or settings. There are different ways to have the program drain less energy from your computer, or however you describe it.

Hi guys, I have a problem! I started using freeamp3 with Reaper however when I'm playing the guitar I can hear my sound twice! I hear a clean guitar and then 1sec after I hear the distorted sound coming from FreeAmp3. Does anyone know what might be the problem? Thanks!

Hi, you might have a direct monitoring system on your soundcard, so turn this level down to mute the clean sound. Then setup the soundcard driver latency (buffer setting) to a low value to hear the plug-in sound in real-time.

Great sounding plug-in. But it crashes my DAW (cubase 5) everytime I close the program. Everything just freezes up including the mouse. Very frustrating. Also it adds pink noise to the mix down. Is there a solution?

Sweet FA2.5 so I'm back to check 3.0. I Painstakingly weeded out the Wanna be host progs and the plugins that work with the "Certain" host progs And this one is the best By FAR! I'm a 35 year guitar player and this has EVERYTHING you'll need plus some. I only wish I could Stop fighting the Win 7 driver Compatibility issues realtek ac97 And that Silly ASIO driver. Leave it to Microsoft to screw up a good thing with another must have OS upgrade and the ensueing 5 yrs of patches hotfixes identified vulnerabilities service packs and workarounds.to cover up another piece of garbage OS!Im going back to win 98!!

Freeze the tracks with inserted FA3 first, then mixdown. Good luck!

I agree can this thing be free. Very nice good interface and the stompboxes are realistic.I only try it very fast for the purpose to check if it's working. And yes it works under Energy XT software. Thanks alot and if its working after next test im ready to make a contribution ..

Worked in Sonar 7. Locks up my CPU in Sonar 8.5 --so bad that I have to hold the power button on my tower to get it to shut down. Task manager does not even come up. Not sure why that is, but I miss this thing. Very cool plugin.

Sonar 8.5 locks up for me as well when I try to load a Sonar 7 or 6 song that has Free Amp 3 as a VST.

I tried it with Sonar X1 and it would come up but I couldn't get it to work right plus it crashed on me a few times.

Great, really great, however, 2 instances of freeamp3 in the same project will crash your host (cubase, nuendo, reaper). It is good to warn it

hey this thing is good to have. I use it with reaper and it beats hauling around a big amp and a case of pedals. Also recording has become easier on the ears for my girlfriend and our neighbours. thanks a lot

Awesome! The presets are useful and the sound is great - I especially like the pedals and the fact that you can mess with mic placement. I'm using this in Samplitude 10 and it couldn't be easier. Can't believe it's free.

WOW! This is as real sounding as amplitube and as gritty and clever as Izotope Trash. Perhaps not the widest range of sounds ever, but more than enough for most people aswell as a lot of attention to detail in the effects and the control you have over the sound. Brilliant stuff, if anyone ever tells you nothing good in life is free, point this out!

This is a really good guitar fx plugin! I can't believe it's free! The stompboxes sound really realistic and even the emulated mic-placement is great!
