M@/Cliff Why would you use this with the AxeFX? Double up processing power? Extra blocks? European customers - do G66 have a waiting list. Come on guys, keep up with the program please don't leave us hanging.

Why would you want / need to use one of these with an Axe FX ?? ( not a rhetorical question..)
you can take some of the effects burden off of the Axe, leaving more CPU available for 2 Ultra Res cab blocks, complex routing, etc.

need? maybe not. but does it make sense? probably.

i'm really hoping that some of the new features on the FX8 - MIDI per scene, hold switch for XY, etc - will be implemented on the Axe/MFC.

How will be the seriell/parallel routings be managed? And defining, where the (Preamp-)Loop will be insert? Would really like to see a screenshot of the setup / config page(s) ... Are the A/B/C knobs for parameter changes? similiar to the A/B/C/D knobs on the Axe?

i had the same exact thoughts. i think the ABC knobs are for what you described.

By the way guys... I have been using one with my Axe-Fx and OMG.

Any chance we get you to elaborate?

Does this change how you look at/work with the rig? I notice with myself that I’m spending a lot of time looking at and tweaking the amp and the cab blocks. Does this make you treat the Axe Fx more as a virtual amp separately from the pedalboard?
