  • There really needs to be an Axe-FX Lite

    I have an issue with spending $1500 for something I will only use part of. Maybe it's just me, but all I need in a modeler is amp models, and probably cab/speaker/mic sims. I like the idea of have a bunch of good sound in one box, that wont ever need tubes, but I would use it mostly for quite jamming and playing with a band through a power amp and a real cab. I much rather keep my effects, if any outboard because I like the options, variety, and simplicity to control. Anyone else on this same page? Should we petition Fractal?

      Does it compare sound and responsiveness wise? if so, problem solved.

        no.

        however, I agree. They should make separate units.

        Axe-Amps
        Axe-Effects.

        I'm prefectly happy with my amps/preamps, but it would be nice to have a modern FX unit I like.

          And I'd only use it for effects.

          Let's buy one together and cut it in half.

                  This. They could absolutely do it, the problem is it wouldn't cost any less. It's just not as simple as it sounds.

                      Bingo. The models are probably the least expensive thing in the Axe. To make high-quality models of either amps or effects, you'll need a lot of processing power. You won't remove that requirement by splitting it into 2 units. It would cost about the same and be preposterously uncompetitive.
