I understand what you're saying but….I think it was kind of a gimmick and not more than that…The big advantage of the G-System is still the built in 19" GFX01 unit:encouragement:
Substitute "tubes" for "tube amps," and you might have a workable argument, unfortunately. I love where we are tech wise. I love my Axe Fx and my Kemper (I know, blasphemy to some), but listen to a crisp Carr Rambler or a punchy Dr Z Maz, and traditional amps definitely have their place. My fear is that it will get harder and harder to get quality tubes.I don't care what any of the die-hards say - tube amps are history.
IMO as long as there are people that love the organic in room realism that can only be gotten from tubes - they will be made.My fear is that it will get harder and harder to get quality tubes.
yeah I agree, being able to rack the G System brain and pedals next to your amp and just run a single CAT5 to the floorboard is a neat ideaThe big advantage of the G-System is still the built in 19" GFX01 unit:encouragement:
Maybe those 5 little knobs serve as dedicated FX controls when you are in the edit window!.... i hope this is the case because if not editing in a live station may turn to be a pain in the ass.Wow I totally missed this topic!
First thing that comes to mind is: why not having two fractal expression pedals build in!
Second thing: would be nice to have more real time control over the effects with some knobs and not having to go into the edit screen all the time.
I guess this is the reason we didn't see any (or very less) effect updates in the last firmware updates?
Are the effects the same as in the Axe fx II? or will there be other effects added?
I wouldn't be surprised if Fractal came out with a CAB only dedicated FX UNIT sporting the amazing UltraRes technology! the catch would be that it will have to have a price similar to what Lodigy EPSI unit goes for or cheaper since that unit does one thing no Axe FX product CANT do at the moment, Convolution Reverbs!.I would by a small footprint 'Amp and Cabs' pedal TODAY!!!!

Thinking about it, the lack of external loops and rack mounting, needing long cable runs between the amp and FX8, means it's maybe not quite the G killer I originally thought. Still looking forward to it though...
