So I'm pondering a switch to the fractal audio AxeFX or their new AX8 system. I've been gigging a lot more, and the reduction in gear would be really nice. Additionally being able to run direct direct into our PA would be nice, and the ability to switch to a patch with a different amp sound would be amazing. I play with an 80's cover band, and we cover a variety of 80's genres. A couple of guitarists I play with use them, and they sound absolutely amazing. Traditionally I've seen them used in high situations, but I've heard these guys recently play them and nail the low gain edge of breakup that everyone idolizes. Thoughts? I think I could sell my gear and break even, or at least come close.
