    Guitarists and triggering samples

    I believe the Cymatic Audio LP-16 will work for this. It’s made to work without a PC. Check it out! 🎸

    Awesome! Sounds like you’re ready to go. This forum is so helpful, and even Cliff chimes in all the time. I also have the AXE III with the FC-12. Very happy!

    Blowing the fuse on the AX8

    Hello, another member recently had his AX8 apart to replace a broken USB plug, which had to be soldered into one of the circuit boards. I PM'd him to find out about the presence of any fuses, and he does not remember seeing any fuses on any circuit boards inside of the AX8. I would contact...

    Input Jack stopped working

    I would find someone local, like a known good electronic repair shop and have them solder in a new jack assy. This does take some good soldering skills to replace a jack like this on a circuit board. Someone posted a USB jack replacement recently. At about 6:50 on the video you can see the input...

    Question About Switching Presets

    Does the delay and reverb tails decay without being cut off when you change presets? Thanks in advance. Dave

    Ax 8 and Pricing

    Good idea that you're purchasing your AX8 from Fractal, as the warranty in not transferable from the original owner (whether new or used condition). Also, when you purchase from Fractal, you will have the opportunity to buy the extended 3 year warranty for $129.99, which is a good deal I think...

    Recording with the AX8 (PC)

    I just received my brand new AX8 a few day ago and I'm really happy with it right out of the box. Specificity, what S/PDIF brand cable are you guys using for the AX8 to the Focusrite Scarlett 6i6? Thanks in advance. Dave

    Perfect Stangers Cover

    Really nice cover of Deep Purple's Perfect Strangers. You have to be on your game to sing this one for sure, and the lead singer did great, but left out part of the vocals ("I know I must remain inside this silent well of sorrow"). You could see him lip syncing, if you will, that part of the...

    Good Case for AX8 ??

    I actually have the FX8, and the handle is about 4 1/4 " long, and it does hit the case lid, but not too bad, and closes without much of a bulge. I can see where the AX8 would be a worse fit, as the handle is twice as long. What case are you using now?

    Good Case for AX8 ??

    Hi Rex, that bottom picture was from an Amazon consumer reviewer. I don't have an EV-1, but I do use a Dunlop Wah, which fits, but it's smaller than the EV-1. Looks like the new Fractal EV-2 compact pedal would fit ok. Dave

    Good Case for AX8 ??

    SKB has a footcontroller soft case that will work for the AX8. I cannot post a link yet, as I need 10 posts, but you can copy this URL from Amazon: Someone posted a customer review and said that it will fit the AX8 (see second picture below). The SKB model number is: 1SKB-SC2111. Also, the...

    Anyone Using Marshall JMP-1 Preamp With FX8?

    I'm using a Carvin TS 100 for my power amp and it sounds great. I also have a Mesa Triaxis preamp, which I may try, but the JMP-1 (Voodoo Amps Modified) works really well and sounds fantastic.

    Anyone Using Marshall JMP-1 Preamp With FX8?

    Is there a way to drop tune a 1/2 step?

    I use the DigiTech Whammy DT Drop Tuning Pedal ($300.00) and it works really well with little to no tone loss. It also pitches up, so no need for a capo. Very convenient to have when you have different tunings in your set-list as we have. What a time-saver, no need to retune or swap guitars...

    For Clumsy Feet

    Jalevinemd, how much extra pressure does it take to activate the bottom switches with the grommets in place? Looks like a great simple fix. As a former G-System user, the switches were an issue as they were too big, and could be easily activated by just hitting the edge. Where did you purchase...

    5 months and not a single update?

    I believe that Fractal is just getting the update "right", and to get it right takes time. Happy Holidays to everyone! Dave

    FX8 vs G-System?

    I just received my FX8 and will be selling my Red Limited Edition G-System soon with the nova drive pedal. The G-System is fantastic once you deal with all the quirky ins and outs of amp choice, what works and what doesn't, noise levels, just to name a few problem areas. If it wasn't for the...
