Guys its the only REAL review of the unit....
I'd guess the unhinged hatred goes back to being denied a free unit to review many years ago.
He's at it again
Tell me more... I've never heard of Satch using an AX8. He does use an Axe Fx and MFC-101, though.And tell Satriani that his AX8, that I witnessed from 3 feet away
It seems he's hung up on the fact that it costs less to make than FAS sells it for. I only got far enough for him to keep ranting about the price of components. You can do that with anything. The price is what the market will bear and the quality of the goods. If it sucked, no one would pay 2500.
What ones are faster? TI makes the most powerful DSPs, by far. The only DSPs more powerful than the one in the Axe-Fx III are the family members with more cores, but they're too expensive for a consumer product.I also thought it was a little weird that he was kind of putting down the DSP. Yes there are faster ones now, but I'm pretty sure none of them are in a production audio preamp. It still outclasses everything on the market that I'm aware of. Maybe one of those 5K Eventides might have one or something, but I'm not really read up on them.
