Looking for opinions... I've been considering a new pedal board for some time now, but what has stopped me is the upcoming release of the Fractal FX8. If the current projected FX8 price remains the same, the costs are very close. The FX8 will have up to 8 effects per preset (with a few limits) and will have many more effects / types than my planned pedal board, and the ability to go deep by using advanced parameters. (I've been in tweaking "hell" before, not a big concern). The ability to have presets and scenes is very powerful. Size, flexibility, usability and capability win for the FX8. I'm waiting to read the manual before deciding...the complexity is in the programming of presets, once done, it is simple to use. My new pedal board will have 10-12 pedals (to start!), will be "easier" to dial in especially when working on various combinations of effects together. Then there's finding a board/case the right size, mounting and wiring the board, etc. Simplicity and ease of use win for a pedal board. I also considered getting both! This way I'd have the pedals to model in the FX8, however this is not practical for a few reasons... What other considerations have I missed? What are your thoughts, opinions and perspective? What have I not thought about?
