M5000 not having all the effects of the M3000

Question

Does the M5000 have all the effects of the M3000?

Answer

The M5000 does not have all the effects of the M3000.

The reverbs in the M3000 derive from the VSS3 algorithm, which is newer than the CORE (Coefficient Optimized Room Emulation) algorithms in the M5000.

With the M3000, we wanted to make a unit that focused mainly on reverb, with the room simulation improvements reached with the VSS3 software, which doesn't exist in the M5000. And as a result of this, we didn't want to create the illusion, that the M3000 is the successor to the M5000, regarding anything else than reverb, hence the lower model number.
