    Fx8 Road Cases?

    We are exploring a soft case option. It's shockingly expensive to do without buying huge quantities right out of the gate though, so we're trying to get creative and come up with a way to make it work and be affordable. We really do feel that these Fractal products make for a great little rig...

    Fx8 Road Cases?

    We will announce all the details within the next week or two, including price. I think we will do a short video tutorial of how the units are mounted to the plate.

    Midi player?!

    In all fairness, there is a big difference between using a laptop in a live setting versus using the AxeFX or an iPad for instance. The boot time for a CPU can be much longer and a bit unpredictable in a pressure situation. There is always the chance that the UBS driver doesn't load and...

    Advice on electric 12-strings

    Seemless scene switching with 2 amp blocks?
