    BodyRez emulation in FX8?

    Did some Room EQ Wizard sweep measurements on my TC Electronic Acoustic Play with BodyRez 1 enabled. Everything else was off. Definitely something other than a straight EQ happening in the mid range. I built a preset in the FX8 with just a single Parametric EQ. I adjusted the EQ to get close to...

    BodyRez emulation in FX8?

    Anyone figure out a way to emulate TC's BodyRez in the FX8? I'd like to dedicate my FX8 to acoustic gigs since those seem to be the only gigs happening these days. I know I can just go and get the pedal, but I'm trying to down size.
