U2 POPMART FOR AF3/FM3


I'm pleased to announce that the Popmart Pack is finally available for AF3 and FM3!


Like for ZOO TV, I pretty much started from scratch, re-analyzing the sounds from the Mexico DVD, as well as some material including "behind the scenes" footage, soundcheck, rehearsals etc, to take the sounds a step further from the AF2/AX8 versions (and this will reflect in the upcoming updates for legacy processors too, of course!).


Like I did last week for ZOO TV, here's a quick recap of the scenes in the new preset layouts:


  1. MOFO - 4 scenes: S1 MAIN, S2 747, S3 BRIDGE/OUTRO, S4 BREAK. Exp.1 controls wah and whammy

Like for Zoo TV, the Popmart pack comes with 2 .zip files including the same presets both in mono and stereo versions. Mono is recommended for live use through a venue PA, stereo is more fun for home jamming with headphones / stereo monitors.
