    Pondering the move from an XL - how easy is transition?

    Yeah the front panel is a bit less friendly than the AXFX so I had to learn to use the editor. But as it sits on the floor I cant really see the buttons anyhow , old people eyesight ugh. I do like the front panel Amp knobs though very spiffy.

    Pondering the move from an XL - how easy is transition?

    The transition was much easier than I thought it would be. I too had worried, but if you are familiar with the AXE-FX it really is the same but different. I read the manual watched a few vids and boom it does exactly what I wanted it to do. I just chose 8 amps ( presets ) I liked set up a...

    Do you use AX8 with our without a pedalboard?

    It is a pedalboard. I have a gazillion amps each with it's own custom pedalboard, at least that is they way I use it. fits perfectly in my plans for live , more with less, application.

    AX8 + backing tracks

    @fireheart7 your backing track ( or mic signal ) does not need to go through the AX8. I just go Laptop to mixer + AX8 to mixer out to powered monitor.

    AX8 + backing tracks

    All good ideas. I do have a Focusrite interface as well. This is for LIVE use and the little Yamaha mixer is just a bit smaller than the Focusrite and a bit easier to set up. Ive got my AXE-FX for studio , recording and such. The AX8 is going on the road for my little gigs, hotel room jams and such.

    AX8 + backing tracks

    Cool @ChristThePhone are you using the JamMan through the fx loop? I have my tracks -sounds and music in Ableton Live on my laptop. yes simple , compact and easy to operate is what I'm going for.

    AX8 + backing tracks

    My one gripe with the AX8 was lack of usb audio. How was I going to play my backing tracks and program music and AX8 through my speaker? So I got a little mixer Yamaha MG06X. Headphone jack from laptop to mixer , AX8 outs to mixer then out to FRFR speaker boom backing tracks and AX8 together...

    Finally had time with my new Ax8 ..... thoughts & questions:

    YES frfr is the solution, I use a EV ZLX 15P powered monitor and it sounds awesome with the AX8 and AXE-FX. IMHO that way you get the best of what the system has to offer - pre + power amp + cab + mic = :-) as far as volume / gain control I just set it up per the instructions in manual + adj the...

    Das Metall does metal!

    yes still have my AXFX II. I tried playing out with it in a rack bag / stand , sounded fantastic but still too big. So trying to make my " rig " as compact as possible - AX8 is perfect , now if I could solve the playback of my backing tracks with the AX8 without too much extra stuff I'll be golden.

    Your AX8 home studio

    On the floor ! Those are footswitches not handswitches. I don't want to play whack-a-mole with my AX8. Seriously though I use my AX-FX II for recording and playback. Now I'm conflicted though , the AX8 sounds so good, that and the ease of switching presets / effects. If the AX8 had usb audio...

    Das Metall does metal!

    I see DropTheSun is still at it ! Sounds great as usual. I just got an AX8 to downsize my rig a bit. I'm sure ill be pestering you guys with questions at some point. So far though the integration has been seamless and it does exactly what I want it to do.

    Wanting an AX8 but...

    Hey thanks. The form and foot controller factor of the AX8 are perfect for my needs. I was thinking of adding a MFC to my AXEFXII rig, but that would be adding even more STUFF. Playing backing tracks for my solos are an important part of my shows so if a simple interface could do that I'd be...

    Wanting an AX8 but...

    Long time fractal user here. I was thinking the AXE8 would be a perfect way to downsize my rig for shows , travelling ect. I run my AXEfx via usb into laptop ( or pc ) for backing tracks, program music , jamming. Do I understand correctly that with the AX8 I cant do this ? Um why ? Does one need...

    FRFR and a good solo sound...

    Cool nice set up. But yeah decoupled from the floor might make it sound thin. I don't know if you would want to try it without the stand. For me it's just me and my backing tracks and a vocalist so I have to have a very full sound. I don't have all those other tone frequencies to compete with...
