    I guess you could use an AX8 to control one. If I were wanting one... I’d use my AX8 to control it until the foot controller is released.

    The irony is that a real Klon is now going for as much as an AXE-FX III.

    It's a shame that Larry isn't a better player so he could really make the Axe III look good o_O

    Now I'm taking my guitar and going home... to woodshed.

    Quad Shift...nice! Said to be “just one of several new exciting pitch block upgrades.”

    How did you activate the drums and bass backing at the end?

    I bought my Ultra used and it was great. I bought a II used and sold the Ultra and it was greater.

    Recorded and sold rekkirds with both. Recorded and sold music for TV, movies and ads with both. II trumped Ultra, but both were good. I predict the III will be gooder. Given my track rekkird, likely buy a III used after the initial bump, sell the II and find it betterer. But I am happy with the II especially for live work.

    Hmm, axechewally, I use the II more for spoken word/instructional recording and capture more income that way than through music, most quarters. Lots of usefulness in a WYSISYG single box.

    Great stuff from Fractal. Wish Cliff and Co. well with the new release.

    You think that there isn't already a more than 40% markup in the "direct from the factory" price?

    Generally speaking, manufacturers are willing to sacrifice some of their profit to their resellers in order to increase the number of units sold, which in turn increases revenues and profits (even if their margins aren't as high as when they sell direct). FAS would more than likely do just fine by selling through distributors/resellers - as long as they can ramp up production to meet demand.

    Axe Edit with its grid layout is IMO the best editor with most logical workflow by far. Not even close.
    The upcoming Axe-FX III version will no doubt be even better.

    A USB audio sound source can be placed on the grid with its own dedicated block.

    Why would FAS bother with resellers when they'll likely have a hard enough time keeping up with demand on their own?

    That's pretty damn cool. How does it do with clean tones - strumming and picking?
