Just to be on the lookout for a 'waiting-list' to pop up for the AX8 here:

Sorry for bumping a necro thread, but I'm really curious about this. Torn between this and the Helix Floor / Helix LT.
I'd rather be sharp than flat.

mas mura yata yung AX8. but mas lamang yung helix when it comes to routing/multipath options. soundwise, kanya kanyang preference lang.

Yeah I saw the price nga. I started becoming curious after reading up on it and watching comparisons with the Helix on Youtube. Seems like it's less prone to fizz and soundwise, I kind of preferred it more than the Helix. Also FOUR EXPRESSION PEDAL SLOTS!

It's very nice. Sounds what you would expect witha Fractal. Firmware updates are plentiful. Got new amps and effects with the new Quantum update. It's easy to use. I never found the need to use the computer editor. But the Helix is far easier to use. But for sure, you got more control and mod options with the AX8.

Based sa internet vids, sound really awesome nga. Which speaker do you pair ax8 mo?

I use a power amp and a conventional 4x12 or 2x12. Pag live, power amp and cab out 1 for stage sound and volume. Out 2 straight to FOH with the stock speaker sims which are already pretty good. I never really liked the sound of FRFR. The AX8 can do pretty convincing amp in the room sounds provided you have a great poweramp.

My favorite is running through the efx return of my tube amp. Huuuuuge sound.

True re running into power amp in of a tube amp. Saturating output transformers is inimitable and is really satisfying.

It's the perfect hybrid setup. I sometimes run a preamp sim of a 5150 thru my 5150 and the amp sounds even better compared to when Im just running its own tube preamp. It sounds so clean and accurate without that high volume compression and mush.

Kainggit. I grew up using maliliit na amps at home then dial most of my tones during practice sa rehearsal studio and sa stage. Gustong gusto ko sound ng mggandang amps na malalaki whenever nkakaplug in ako, sa tindahan or sa venue.

Coming out from years of retirement, i wanted something more kaso hindi practical kumuha ng tube amp/cab so sabe ko bahla na. Laki ng learning curve, daming in depth audio tweakble functions. Isang linggo na dn to.

Hopefully by the time sumabak sa rehearsal studio for a jam, naaral ko na how this works.

Congrats sa score! Medyo nahirapan din ako pagaralan kasi galing ako sa Line 6. Dami tips sa fractal wiki and forums.

Very nice! I'm starting to get sold on this rather than the Helix. This is what I'm getting when I've maxed out my HD500x.
