    Out 2: TRS to XLR?

    Thanks .. was wondering if the humbuster thing could double as a balanced TRS cable. Ok will use the TS jack instead.

    Out 2: TRS to XLR?

    Simple question guys .. can I wire a cable to be used with output 2 where I have a TRS (AX8 side) and a XLR on the cabinet side? Or does it need to be TS only? Thanks for the help!

    CTL Switch vs Footswitch control

    Thanks Chris, well that’s a shame as I thought I’ve found the ultimate solution for a *global*solo boost. If I have to choose then it makes more sense to be able to turn the delay on/off instead.

    CTL Switch vs Footswitch control

    A question for the more advanced users: I have a delay on/off on FS8 I also have a Control Switch on FS4 as a solo boost doing the following: - turn on a filter with 4db boost - increase a Drive pedal distortion value - *turn delay on* For some reason, when I attach the delay to my Control...

    AX8 V9.01 Public Beta

    Digitech FX3 and AX8

    Right now I’m just using it to toggle a few modulation fxs but will spend more time thinking about the options.. it’s just nice to have all 3 in one package. The remaining one I use for the exp pedal.

    Digitech FX3 and AX8

    Just double checking: Can't assign a Control Switch to change delay sub-divisions right?

    As per title :) Can I assign a Control Switch to change delay sub-divisions? From what I see I can only define specific ms values and not sub-divisions (1/8, 1/4 etc) I was trying to get away with only 1 delay (no x/y) changing it's sub-division with a control switch. thanks!

    Powered Speaker solution - non-US Fractal owner

    Eu testei o K8 contra o DXR10 da Yamaha e o CLR. Em termos de grave seria DXR10 > K8 > CLR (menos grave - o que eu acho que faz muito mais sentido com guitarra). O k8 tem tb 3 opcoes pra grave.. eu sempre usei a opcao com menos grave pq era demais da conta :)

    Atomic CLR

    Yep, it translates 100% .. I just think that at low volumes some extra thump is always helpful.
  35. cbellanga

    Atomic CLR

    Well it can get pretty loud if needed :) but it also sounds great at low volume as long as you tweak your EQ a bit to compensate the high/lows
  36. cbellanga

    Atomic CLR

    Gosh that's good! I've been using a QSC K8 for some time with great results but the CLR feels like an AX8 extension.. everything just sounds just right out of the box + I'm not getting that mic'ed amp feeling anymore. Expensive but I definitely think it worth the cash, so much more fun now :)

    Assign booster and delay to F3 switch (Not a Bug)

    I use the top row for 4 scenes (5-8) and then F2 to trigger S1/S2 for solo boost (both are the same) so it's a consistent row with 5 options. I then use the lower row for instant FX access.

    Makes sense.. so you're using amp x/y? How is it working live? Any perceived gaps? So far I've been using the drives on a clean fender-style amp butneould love to use the amps for crunch / lead. Experimented a lot but I'm still not happy with the lag.

    Very stupid question reg. Fletcher Munson effect

    Good suggestion, will give it a try! I'm just trying to understand how different these dynamics are from real amps. The effect is not that noticeable on a valve amp so was wondering if there's a way of modelling it.
  52. cbellanga

    Very stupid question reg. Fletcher Munson effect

    ok I know it's a stupid question but would love to hear from the veterans anyway :) I understand that the FM effect is less apparent on valve amps as while increasing the volume the power amp compress and ease down the high / low frequencies (that's what I read elsewhere but also my...
  53. cbellanga

    Why why Z? My A B C test and other musings...

    You could use the ax8 just for fxs as well, just like the fx8 no? So if you need amp modelling in the future just in case or as the firmwares get better you'd already have it..

    For those waiting, what are you using?

    Agree! Had a FX-8 and eventually sold it as I couldn't get a good edge of break-up sound of it. My Tim pedal does that marvellously. I'm expecting to be able to get a more realistic tone now that I can use amp sim instead.

    FX8 and Axe-Fx II effects threads: Drives & Boosts (DRV)

    I was looking for something that doesn't colour the tone essentially. Conscious it's just my first week with the FX8 so will keep fine tuning it. Have the feeling that some of the harshness is also coming from how my amp is pointing directly at me so all those highs are piercing my ears :)

    Just spent some time carefully loading the blocks. Managed to get a good selection under 70% cpu. As mentioned before all fxs sound awesome so no big loss really :)
  88. cbellanga

    Did you ever max out the processing power of the FX8?

    Just got mine and already hit the ceiling with comp > wah > drive 1 > drive 2 > rotary > reverb (normal) > delay Was planning to add a tremolo or octave on the remaining slot but can't at the moment. Need to check each individual fx now to see why I'm using that much CPU.
