I am having to manually copy each preset from the AX8 to the new FM9. I tried Fractool but the presets came out wrong. Is there an easier way?
Ya man, thats the only way to do it, manually. I did a bunch of screen shots. Turned on Ax8- edit on another machine and just got them in the ball park and then tweaked them. One thing i did find is, the FM-9 does sound killer, better than my Ax8. It does take time but ya you learn your presets and the way FM9 and FM-9 edit works, etc...I am having to manually copy each preset from the AX8 to the new FM9.

Yes, best way. I did this process when converting from my AX8 to my FM3. Then converted direct from my FM3 to FM9. One thing I noticed was I still needed to tweak them at gig volume. First gig I was comparing my FM9 presets against our other guitarist and I preferred my AX8 patches. Fired up my Atomic CLR at gig volumes and made a few adjustments and my live tone was back and better than ever.Convert your ax8 presets to axefx3 format using FracTool then import them with FM9edit, it's the best option
