    I would like to tone match my drive sound from my real guitar amp and import it as a preset in my AX8. Can i do that with cab lab or other software ? Thanx.

    Nope, you need an AxeFx 2 or 3 to generate the tonematch. Now, if you borrow one to do the match, you can convert it to a cab ir (AX8 doesn't have tonematch block) and use it in the AX8.

    You can do it from within your DAW. Record your take without a cab model. Use something like Izotope Ozone to generate the "matched" EQ, and Voxengo Deconvolver to create a sweep WAV. You'll export the audio track so the sweep is running through the matched EQ (watch the levels, they clip easily) which will then create a WAV of your new EQ curve. Voxengo will then convert it to the IR format. You will also need CabLab to convert the IR file to syx. Then import the cab file to your user cab folder.

    Be aware that a tone match will only copy the frequency response. The drive and dynamic characteristics are not included in a tone match.
