    More thoughts on my experience with Kemper and Axefx II

    Thank you for sharing- I used the AXEFX2, which I sold for the AX8 (better for gigs but I really miss the lack of processing power). What I really like is the pitch shifter quality of the Kemper. If I would have it, I would just load a dumblesque patch for crunch and lead, a NEVE preamp for...

    Pitch Shifter on Ax8

    It would be great if we would have the option to select between a better, lower consuming CPU Pitch Block, and a more advanced one, with formant pitch shifting, which would inevitably consume more processing power, but it could be used for simple patch.

    Pitch Shifter on Ax8

    patch was quite simple, it didn't even had a amp+cab block... just some filters and an intelligent (?) pitch shift. Originally it had also a synthesizer block, one octave lower, but I had to remove it: not because I was running off of CPU, but because it was completely out of tune, but that's...
