    AX8 with subpar PA

    I always bring my XiTone for either back line, or monitoring purposes. If I'm just using it for monitoring, I point it at me like a regular floor wedge. If I need it for back line I just put it behind me ala any typical combo/cab type arrangement. I don't sweat the FOH things, though I'll make...

    Headrush 108 vs 112

    Are these indoor and outdoor venues? Just curious how they're doing on warmer outdoor events.

    Headrush 108 vs 112

    All these Headrush powered boxes remind me of the Alto TS210s and similar powered boxes (I have 4 of the TS210s). If only because they look like they're sourced from the same manufacturer. I am aware there are some internal differences between the Alto TS312 series and the Headrush112, but I'm...

    Official statement bout AX8 updates needed!

    Just speaking for myself, I'd say the lack of any sort of announcement or comment regarding the prospect of future AX8 update(s) means simply, "They don't know yet." And if they don't know yet, that's why we don't know yet. It's that simple. Why obsess over it? I'm sure there are loads of...

    AX8 Discontinued?

    Evidently what you think AX8 users wanted was not what Fractal Audio thought their users wanted. So, you were overruled ... it happens.

    AX8 Discontinued?

    The funny thing about the AX8 is it still sounds pretty incredible even though it appears to be at the end of it's life cycle. So incredible that I doubt many (if any) could tell the difference between it, an FM3, an AFXII or III in a mix. As if the music police will write you up for not using...

    ForScore AX8 MIDI Patch Changes

    LOL - now you've got me wondering if I could use a couple F switches from my AX8 to change pages in ForScore. Don't answer that ... jk

    AX8 vs Atomic Amplifire

    I'm emotionless when it comes to Atomic ... you seem to be reading things into my comments that just aren't there ...

    AX8 vs Atomic Amplifire

    Exactly when did Atomic "come out and tell everyone the AA3 was 'running out of room'" before they released their pitch block firmware? I'll wait for you to post a link, but I'm not going to hold my breath because I know that's simply not true. It never happened. They didn't say anything about...

    AX8 vs Atomic Amplifire

    I was an early adopter of the Amplifire back when it came out. I gigged mine for about 3+ years and at the time it was the best modeler I'd personally used. Until I got my AX8, but before I got my AX8, I got an FX8 (the original one). Because of the timing when the latter initially became...

    Solo Boost: sounds great in IEM but soundman says it's not enough boost

    AX8 with Eventide H9 Strymon BigSky

    I used an H9 max (in the loop) with my AX8 when I first started using the latter. In the end I found I didn't need the H9 all that much. As much as I like the H9. Did any of you do anything in particular with the extra CPU availability on the AX8 when using an H9 and/or a BIg Sky to handle...

    AX8 through a DXR10, getting hum using 1/4 inch outs

    I had the same experience as what you've described except my XiTone & AX8 were indeed on the same circuit. This was also the same case when we tested everything at the shop. I still have absolutely no idea why I was getting such a loud ground loop hum. The explanation I was given didn't exactly...
