    Hi Mark, what I found I did was to buy the FX8, and just figure out the basic stuff - literally how to plug it in (using 4cm) with my amps. I did have the advantage of owning an AxeFX first, but the process was the same. - once I plugged in, I just started to play. tried out all the presets...

    Anyone else using a pedaltrain 1?

    That's why I actually mounted my MFC-101 on the underside of the Pedaltrain - I didn't need the height or angle that the Pedaltrain offered, and I find having the back of the pedaltrain's 'leg' blocks the back of the MFC, it works as protection against drunks stepping on my cables!

    Is there a detailed list of presets for the fx8

    You're correct Fatjac - thank you... So, OP is correct - there is no detailed listing of the effects in each preset...but perhaps he/we can make one. I don't know of a way of exporting the info from Axe-Edit, but maybe there is a way?
