    Why place delay, reverb chorus etc *after* cab

    You only need a mono-cab that way.

    AX-8 10.00 Public Beta #2

    All amps sound more muscular , x/y and scene-switching is so fast that it's usable for live gigs finally. Really cool I have a slight problem though. When I select scene 2 my amp won't go to amp y, wich it is programmed to do.

    Q10 Firmware for the AX8?

    Why do people speculate about products that nobody at fractalaudio has mentioned anything about. I can´t see any information anywhere about a new ax8. This thread started about if, or when, Q 10 was coming to the only existing AX8.

    Q10 Firmware for the AX8?

    I don´t know exactly who sad what about this, but I sure hope that the AX8 gets the Q10. I tried an AXE-FX 2 with Q10 and really prefer that sound and feel. Regarding CPU capacity, people sometimes forget that the AX8, only has to do 50% of the amp- and cab-modeling compared to AXE-FX2.

    AX8 V9.01 Public Beta

    9,01 sound really good. Two strange things though: 1.Marshall 1987 treble sounds muddier than 1987 jump. How come ? 2. The speaker compression defaults to zero on several of the amps. I´ve read that it should default to 3. I´m not saying that it´s bad or something. I´m just a little surprised. .

    Is the dry-signal-path still digital ?

    Does anybody know if the dry signal-path on the fx8 is still digital ? I asked before and was informed that there maybe was a possiblity to have an analog dry path. That would be a really cool option for purists. I know a couple of guys that would bye the unit the same day this was solved.

    It looks like nobody else cares about the new amp modeling but I must say that this firmware sounds, and feels pretty damn real. The plexi and fender twin really jumps out of the speaker. Really impressive stuff.

    Extreme Microphonic Noise?

    That was no squeeling from pickups. That´s just normal vibrations from the body and springs. Nothing wrong with the AX8. It ampifies whatever comes in. You can´t wax-pot-away body-vibrations, and you wouldn´t want to either.

    AX8 V8.00 Public Beta

    Yes I know all that. But sometimes amps differ 12 dB´s at full master and lots of preamp gain. The don´t seem to have the same clipping limit "so to speak". It´s no big problem to me but it could save some time if there was a standard.

    There has never been a standard for output levels in amp models. It can differ quite a bit between models. Don't ask me why. I asked before after a standard level. For example , if you put the master level at full blast and the power section distorts, then all amps could have the same level...

    I wish there were global blocks in the AX8. Sometimes I borrow cabs at gigs wich can be different on wright an left side. Then you can have a global eq on the left side on all presets, for example. Also you can tweak your favorite delay once, instead of on every preset.
