it's not sad because Normal quality sounds very good. it IS a high quality already. the high is just higher. don't let words fool you.It is kind of sad that we have to reduce the quality to have enough memory.
This is probably why many people buy the Eventide H-9 to use with the Ax8.
That was me. The thread is here http://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/reverb-settings-blind-test.113538/Someone posted a poll with several sound clips to see if people could identify which was high quality vs which was normal. End result, most people couldn't tell the difference. Do a search to find the thread if you are curious.
