Now available for immediate download, the one, the only... AX8 Quantum v8.00 Public Beta. Based on the amp modeling from the Axe-FX Quantum 8.0 release. Please note, that this is BETA firmware, and as such, may contain bugs or other unforeseen consequences. Please, as always, backup your AX8 with Fractal-Bot before proceeding with this upgrade.

AX8 V8.00 Public Beta

Release Notes:

AX8 V8.00 implements the new Amp Modeling improvements and fixes introduced by the Axe-FX Quantum 8.0.

Additions:
  • Improved amp modeling. Improves clarity and sounds more “open” especially for non-MV amp models or when the MV is turned up.
  • The bias excursion values for most amp models have been updated based on new measurement techniques. Existing presets will automatically be updated to the new values.
  • Based on user feedback the Amp block Speaker Drive now defaults to zero.
  • Increased gain of “Brit Brown” model by 12 dB.
  • Added “5F1 Tweed EC” based on a Fender Eric Clapton Vibro-Champ.
Fixes:
  • Fixed “quantization” noise when Amp block Transformer Drive parameter is set to its minimum value and a lot of gain is applied after the block. This specifically addresses the “Tube Pre” model as the default Transformer Drive is at the minimum.
  • Fixed Amp block Preamp Hardness parameter not “sticking”.

@joe rogers Got this post in the FB group.

I tried it out for 1/2 hour, and had to go back to Beta 7.01. Reverb shut off at 68% CPU useage, AND WOULD NOT COME BACK ON. It then started to hiss,,, really un-useable. Sorry...
