    Yup - I'll be going from 6 to 8.x After all the comments I must admit that I'm a bit excited about it. Have this weekend to upgrade and tweak patches and gig the following friday. Tom Petty tribute band so it's all HiWatt with one patch of JTM. I am almost ready to create some patches from scratch and I feel like going to some Fender or Marshall amps for a while. We will see.

    Good luck I think you'll be very pleased. I am looking forward to band practice with my updated firmware this Friday!

    Just made a great sounding "Limelight" preset with the Hiwatt 8beta.

    I think you're going to like it! (the Hiwatt 8.x, I mean)

    I gigged the beta over the weekend and it sounded awesome. I actually had a guy message me the next day asking me about Fractal.

    Gigging with the beta this Saturday night. Been great so far at practise. 7 never sounded as good as 6 to me for some reason; haven't had to tweak 8 a great deal to get it sounding aces.

    I hope we get the new IR's that Cliff added to 8.02 (I'm sure we will). I was about to buy some of the Celestion IR's.

    Like Mark Knopfler says:

    "It's the firmware game, you learn it slow
    AXE, beta and it's back to go

    Sometimes there is a new release
    Sometimes there is a bug... "

    Let me say I was fearing this: new version for AXE before a final release for AX8...

    Hmm. Strange. I haven't seen the AX8 fall behind like this before.
    If I didn't prefer the compact size of the ( all-in-one ) AX8 , I'd own an AxeFx2 ....... - too.
    I sometimes wish they were twins , for firmware simplicity and preset sharing , but then , I also like that the AX8 is streamlined.
    It's officially --------- Friday. Will this week include F.Friday :) ?
    Come on Joe , we are all counting on you.
    .....no pressure.

    Does anyone here actually play guitar? Or do they just wait for an update and hound FAS if they're 'late' releasing the next one? :oops:

    How are we supposed to enjoy playing guitar when there is a potentially better tone out there? It just takes all the joy out of playing!!!
