    Bit the bullet and trusted in Cliff. Ordered! This will be my first load box, so I’m excited to play my amps thru my XL+ and AX8. Would I plug the DI out to the front of the AX? Or on the back and use the FXL block as an amp block per se?

    Thanks for asking! It's working out great! Once I level out the amps with the Dry a bit louder than the Wet, it sounds great! I love the way the Multi Delay block sounds. Still need to mess with it more to work out the amount Wet but that's the fun part!

    I love the Blue MoFi's. With the Axe I use them with the built in amp off, because otherwise I feel they are too loud. When recording and mixing the built in amp in First position sounds amazing or just plain listening to music. I end up hearing things I've never heard before. Highly Recommended!
