Fender has announced that as of March 20 2020 they have dropped support for Fender FUSE software, meaning for computer support for the Mustang I-V series amplifiers. However, Fender Consumer Relations has advised at least one customer that the software can still be downloaded from these locations:

Mac version: https://www.fmicassets.com/fender/support/software/fender_software/fender_fuse/mac/FenderFUSE_FULL_2.7.1.dmg

Windows version: https://www.fmicassets.com/fender/support/software/fender_software/fender_fuse/pc/FenderFUSE_FULL_2.7.1.exe

We’re glad that Fender has not abandoned their Mustang and Mustang v.2 owners. They’re great amps with plenty of life and music left in them. Stay tuned for more information.

  1. Hi Richard, I am about to purchase a Mustang IV v.2 Amp and I downloaded the “Fuse” software ignorer to purchase and run your patches. The current version of OS I am running on my MAC won’t run the Fuse Software. What are my options? Do you think I should still purchase the Mustang IV v.2 Amp or are there more updated options? (I plan on purchasing the amp tomorrow, Sat 7/11) Thanks

  2. Hi Bob, the first thing I can say is that my licensees think the M3 sounds better than the IV; guitarists seem to agree too. So my first advice is to hold out for a Mustang 3.

    Regarding FUSE: FUSE has always been flaky on the Mac. I recommend that you borrow a PC compatible to install FUSE and the patches. I know for a fact that FUSE runs fine on every Windows machine from Win 7 to 10.

    let me know if you need more. Thanks, RH

  3. Richard,
    I have Fuse (Windows) running on my Mustang 1 v1. Will your harp patch set work on a v1?

  5. Today (31-Oct-2020) i realized that although FUSE is still loading in windows 10, it cannot do a complete backup of the amp’s patches and it freezes during backup process. I m totally convinced it is these new updates that Microsoft implemented for windows 10 that somehow prevent FUSE from working as expected

  6. im so so thankful to you for this! i had almost lost hope to edit the presets on my amp because i thought the app was gone, but you saved me. thank you!

  7. im not sure why my comment didn’t pass the moderation, so i’ll post it again.
    thank you for this! i had almost lost hope to modify the presets on my amp when i saw the anncouncement that fender dropped support for the app, but thanks to you i could download it again and edit my effects. you’re a lifesaver!

  8. My pleasure. I wish I could say that this software will survive the next upgrade to windows, but it might not. If your amp is a Mustang 3/4/5, it’s pretty easy to edit from the front panel, less so for 1/2.

  9. oh it’s alright since i’m totally fine with what i have at this point. merry christmas to you, have some quality holidays!

  10. First, is it included the install for the FUSE application? (I can’t check right now.) I don’t know of a separate link. Consider a different ASIO driver if not, like ASIO4ALL.

  11. Hey guys, hope you’re doing well. I would like to know if anybody has the update files for the Fender GDec 3 amp. It seems like the page has been discontinued, just as they did with the FUSE page, and now I cannot find nor the firmware updates or the different versions files. If you could help me with those files or a repository it would be awesome. Thank you very much!

  12. Hey guys. Posting again because I don’t know how the moderation works… I would like to know if anybody knows where to find the update files for the Fender GDec 3 amp. It seems like the page has been discontinued, and now I cannot find nor the firmware updates or the different versions files. If you could help me with those files or a repository it would be awesome. Thank you very much!

  13. Hello Richard,
    Sorry to bother you here… A couple odf days ago, I purchased your patch kit for Mustang 3 V2 thru paypal. When I clicked on the download button, it said something like Payment not “something” . Later I received the receipt of payment, but I can’t find any download for me.
    Can you help me with this, please.
    Thanks!
    Jeff

  14. Hi Matt, jut learned that there’s an Android app called Remuda that does everything FUSE does and then some. The Lite version is free so you can give it a try. wish they had that for iOS.

  15. Hello Richard,
    do you have any idea why my amp is not recognised in fuse application. (in left bottom corner it says: ampplifier not connected) I have Fender Mustang 1. When i connnect the amp to computer by usb cable also nothing happens? Thank you
