    First Gig with AX8

    I could never get used to the protection bar on my FX8 so I sold it. Sounded pretty good though.

    Lock? Shift? Knobs? Big Rollbar\Handle?

    The top panel is bolted to the main case. The same holes could be used.

    Lock? Shift? Knobs? Big Rollbar\Handle?

    I agree the bar is really annoying on the fx8 i have. I always the thought bar should be moved to the top panel on the fx8 and the ax8. See photoshopped file. In my opinion that would be much better.

    Knob protector bar blocking button 3

    I also use the ball of my foot to click on buttons have been doing so for 20+ years as a lead singer it is nearly impossible to try to push button 3 with your tippy toe with that bar in the way while singing. There must be a way to relocate that bar and still have it function as expected...

    Knob protector bar blocking button 3

    Does anyone else find that the bar that protects the knobs is completely in the way of button three? It makes it nearly impossible to step on that button in a live performance. I can only imagine on the AX8 where the bar is blocking buttons two through four would make that unit nearly unusable...

    Wish Different Midi CC numbers for X and Y settings?

    Currently X/Y settings use the same CC number for example (Drive 1 X/Y is 108), If X could be 108 and Y could be 109 and one would turn off the other perhaps we could hook up a midi controller and switch between x and Y with out having to hold down the switch and still have it activate on the...

    Bank up and down presets in scene mode?

    Is there any way to keep the FX8 in scene mode while using the bank up and down presets? Currently I have to take it out of scene mode and then put it in back in bank up and down presets mode and it's a pain. Thanks

    My impressions of FX8 - Thinking of sending it back

    The CPU issue needs to be resolved. Working with the FX8 can be very frustrating as you are forced to sacrifice effects you want to use just so you can add another fx block. :( for example: spring reverb.

    Serious CPU Bottleneck, Spillover (again)

    Hi Yek, The error usually happens when trying to change the type of reverb. Say in the patch you have listed above change to each type of different reverb will usually cause the cpu error for me. Even with the reverb reset to its default settings. b
  27. B

    Serious CPU Bottleneck, Spillover (again)

    I would have to agree CPU limit is very annoying. They should at least make each reverb default to a lower setting so you can add it to your preset without the CPU error. If you want to then make it Hi-Rez from there you have that option.

    FX8 V2.00 Public Beta

    In a future version, would it be possible that when changing patches via the up/down and you are currently in edit mode for a block. That when changing patch it takes you out of edit mode so you can see the patch name of the next patch? Does that make sense?

    FX8 Block set up

    But that only mutes the pre stage effects correct not the preamp of the amp ? For example if i were using a high gain amp, muting the pre stage would not mute the amp preamp so the sound would then be clean. correct? Thanks

    Hi Joe, When using 4 cable method is it possible to mute the pre stage so I only hear the guitar and effects in post bypassing the pre? As if the guitar and fx8 was plugged directly into the loop?

    Global Input Impedance?

    Actually I think the auto 1m setting actually makes the axe sound fake and digital sounding. 1m+cap sounds way better for both frfr and power amp and cab. Try it. Of course that is just my opinion.

    Global Input Impedance?

    It seems like more then slight treble roll off to me. The strings have a much fuller sound with 1m+cap. And when rolling off the guitars volume you don't get that thin string syndrome. :shock

    Global Input Impedance?

    Is there any way to set the input impedance globally? I really dislike the auto 1m setting for any preset or guitar. It seems to add thin sounding high end. Much better when set to 1m+cap
