    The AX8 has the ability to send PC commands on the 8 scenes. This means it can be used as a floor controller for the AxeFX II (or III eventually I would guess). I've tried this and it works quite well to change presets on the II.

    It would be great if this functionality was expanded to CC commands as well. That way, a preset on the AX8 could select a preset on the Axe II, but also change scenes.

    In other words, you could use the AX8 as your foot controller for the AxeFx and also have it function as a backup if anything happened to the AxeFx, or by itself if you just needed a grab and go for a smaller gig.

    I'm a little surprised this hasn't gotten any discussion. Am I the only one that thinks it would be cool if the AX8 had a foot controller mode? it has the buttons and the brains, why not have that functionality?

    This has been discussed in other threads. It's not possible now but you never know what the future may bring.

    Thanks Matt! I did search and kept coming up with blank. Sorry to bring up an already talked about topic. Hopefully someday Cliff et al can work their magic.
