Product Description



  • FX8 is an advanced multi-effects processor, perfect for guitar, bass, and other instruments.
  • “Built Like a Tank” with a powder-coated steel chassis and aircraft aluminum end panels.
  • Eleven quiet, durable solid state footswitches with no mechanical contacts to fail. 27 LEDs! Two onboard TRS RELAYS to control your amp’s channel or effect switching.
  • Two onboard PEDAL jacks to connect footswitches or expression pedals.
  • FX8 can control or respond to other MIDI gear in your rig with MIDI IN and OUT/THRU ports. Easy-to-use with a 160×80px display, 6 buttons, 5 knobs, and minimal menu diving.
  • 128 PRESETS allow you to create 128 completely different pedalboards.
  • Up to eight simultaneous effects per preset, with state-of-the-art “Fractal-quality” algorithms. Each effect can be configured as desired: Pre/Post, Series/Parallel.
  • “Stompbox Mode” provides traditional ON/OFF switching, plus XY switching (with press & hold). “XY” gives many effects two completely different sets of settings for maximum sonic flexibility. Eight SCENES/preset allow you to load effect ON/OFF and X/Y “combos” (plus relays and MIDI.) “Modifiers” allow real-time control of many parameters via MIDI, pedals, or controllers. Designed for UNITY GAIN (both PRE and POST) and featuring TRUE BYPASS.
  • High quality converters deliver ultra-low noise and pristine audio. No tone suck!
  • HumbusterTM outputs help defeat ground hum (when used with HumbusterTM Cables).
  • Built-in global IN and OUT VOLUME (pedal-assignable) & dual global 10-band Graphic EQ.
  • Every preset includes a built-in dedicated global 4-MINUTE LOOPER (8m in mono)
  • USB for connection to a Mac or PC for easy editing, backup/restore, and firmware updates. FX8-Edit, a free editor/librarian, gives user-friendly access to all sound settings.
  • And more! Upgradeable firmware means the FX8 will get updates and new features.

Product Videos

FAS: FX8 Multi-Effects Pedalboard (as stomp box) - Demo - Laney VH100R (06:15)
http://www.fractalaudio.com/p-fx8-multi-effects-pedalboard.php Fractal Audio's FX8 takes all of the superb quality drives and effects from its flagship Axe-FX and packages them into one seriously tough pedalboard. There are 8 effect access footswitches with which to access any of the effects and many of the effect types feature X and Y states which means your choice is dramatically increased. You can internally place effects pre or post your amp's front end or effects loop and on the rear you'll find comprehensive control facilities for things like MIDI, expression pedals and relay switches. Stereo? Of course. FAS have also given us FX8-Edit, a quite spectacular OS X and Windows GUI with which to write, share and save your presets. This video shows the FX8 in perhaps its simplest configuration - as a straight up stomp box. Thanks to the X/Y facility of the effects blocks (indicated by X and Y in the video) I've been able to give myself four different drives, two reverbs, two delays, compressor, rotary, tremolo and wah - everything I'd need for a grab and go pedalboard and then some. Further videos featuring the FX8 in more advanced configurations will appear soon. Many thanks to Andrew Farnham at Independent Music, Australia, and Fractal Audio Systems.

  1. Best thing I've ever done 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2017

    I was previously carrying around a large pedalboard and an effects rack to all band rehearsals and gigs. Once I started using the FX8 I realised just how much tone and volume my amp was losing due to the sheer amount of cables, pedals, and switchers I was running. Not to mention my poor back.

    Now I've got a clear crisp sound with the best effects I've ever heard. The options are endless, and the unit is safe and secure in the DuGyte road case.

    Best purchase I've ever made for effects!
