My impressions of FX8 - Thinking of sending it back

Not open for further replies.


The CPU issue needs to be resolved. Working with the FX8 can be very frustrating as you are forced to sacrifice effects you want to use just so you can add another fx block. :( for example: spring reverb.

I'm going to close this thread as I am now working with the OP via private emails.

If you want to use a lot of high-quality, CPU-intensive effects, the Axe-Fx II is always an excellent option.

If you are into building virtual pedalboards with a lower CPU ceiling but the same high quality effects in fewer numbers, try the FX8.
It also gives some great amp control options, but remember: it is not an Axe-Fx and you'll have to work within its limits.
