    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.

    Can anybody try this preset please ?

    I am trying to build a three channel amp preset (with no dropouts) without changing the amp. I am getting audio-pops and crap. There is 6 scenes. clean - clean with chorus, chrunch- church with chorus etc. The scene controller puts on the saturation switch on the "lead channel". I think the use...

    Possible drop out bug in 8.0

    i noticed a sound drop out when switching the delay on and off with a footswitch. The interesting thing was that my delay is wired i parallell. So the dry signal goes through the chorus. How could the direct signal dissappear when switching the delay signal on and off. Anyway, my delay switch...

    Scene controller- and function switches behaviour.

    On my old behringer FCB1010 board there was a great function for some switches. They had 3 states. On off don´t care. I miss the third one when programming function switches or scene controllers or even presets. Then you can change scene or preset without your delay turning on or off when...

    Wish Global blocks

    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.

    Bass resonance mk2c

    I just noticed that the speaker resonance were a little different on the mk2c than most other amps in fw 18.08. The bass resonance were really low in magnitude. I moved it up from 3 to 5,5 or something and the amp sounded a lot fuller to me. (Maybe it is simulating an evm12l impedance curve...

    Output 1 and 2 volume value

    I have noticed that if you set the levels ,so that no clipping occours ,and then activate the cab block ,the level increases and clipping starts. Maybe it would be a good idea to lower the cab block levels, so the same headroom is achieved. Since the ir is a long addition of intances it...

    New editor weirdness

    The editor for 5,04b behaves weird. 1. If i bypass a cab (that's in mute bypass mode) it puts out sound. 2. If i bypass delayblocks in the editor they won't bypass in the axe. 3. The saved presetname won't show up in the editor. It's really strange.

    Damping parameter

    I personally think that the damping parameter is changing the volume of the power-amp -section in the wrong direction. If you increase the damping (negative feedback) in a real amp, it normally makes the (gain) volume go down. However , in the "axe" it gets louder. This strange behaviour only...
