I passed on it too because I didn't need more options from an Axe-Fx. I will look into Fractal products again when they release an "AX-9" or whatever the next gen simplified floorboard version will be called.
Good idea. Don't give up that lovely form factor. As a II user I'm quite jealous.I'm staying the course with the AX8. It just makes so much more sense for me right now and is the centerpiece of my recording and live electric and acoustic gig rigs.
Now... about that Gibson Traditional I've been eyeing up
It would seriously kill me if they did an AX-whatever with the current modeling of the III, in a floorboard. I've bought way too much crap lately, but it'd be a cool thing to try.Remember; there is a Fractal event happening at the end of April, iirc. Might be an announcement there.
