    Hey, I really need to read up on the AX8 unit. Got lost over at Fractal. Can anyone post a link to the manual and other suggested reading. My unit arrives this week.

    Go to support on the Fractal page, the manuals should be there. Also check out the Axe FX Wiki.

    Thank you, from one place when I clicked on the AX8 manual, the FX8 manual came up. I just found the AX8 manual from the the support page.

    You should also check this link out. One of the forum members over there is going through all the amp models one by one and giving good tips on how to tweak them correctly and what cabs and stuff go well with them.

    If you can find a discontinued SP-2, you can switch between controlling exp pedal 1 & 2 with just one pedal and a toe switch.

    Thanks so much for all the tips guys. My unit came in today, but I don't think I'll dive into it, I just got home.

    I use one, and it is a passive device. You can hook up an AC adapter to power the LED on the unit which switches colors, so you know what you are controlling. It doesn't need power, though- it is just for the LED. There is no battery option, although if I was able to design it, I would just design a battery option (I can't imagine the LED takes a lot of power) and a small switch to turn the battery on and off on the outside.
