The FX8 MKII is a multi-effects pedal­board designed to deli­ver Fractal’s signa­ture quality without comp­romise in an effects-only floor unit. FX8 MKII runs up to eight simul­taneous effects using the state-of-the-art algo­rithms made famous in the Axe-Fx II line ofproces­sors. It features a rugged steel chassis with air­craft alu­minum end-panels, conve­nient top handle, eleven quiet, durab­le solidstate foot­switches with no mecha­nical con­tacts to fail, 27 LEDs in three colors, five knobs beneath a bright display, Hum­buster™ out­puts to elimi­nate hum due to ground loops (when used with Humbuster™ cables), dual TRS relays for amp switching, two switch/expres­sion pedal jacks, USB, MIDI and more. The unit is designed for unity gain and offers buf­fered true bypass. Above all, it features an extremely high quality signal path to deli­ver ultra-low noise and pristine sound quality. In other words, 'no tone suck!'

Onboard preset memo­ries let you create 128 totally different pedal­boards. Every effect in every preset can be run in series or parallel. Using the optional 'four cable' setup, you can place each effect 'PRE' (between guitar and amp, where pedals go) or 'POST' (in the amp’s send/return loop, where rack effects are typically placed).

Use Stomp­box Mode on the FX8 for traditional effect 'tap dance' switching, or leve­rage the eight SCENES in each preset to engage pre-defined effect groups from a single switch. Many effects also offer 'XY' switching, which gives them two comp­letely different sound settings: imagine dialing in a single drive pedal with both Overdrive and Fuzz channels, or a re­verb with foot-selectable 'spring' and 'hall' sounds.

The fantasti­cally flexible modifier system enables easy real-time sound changes. You can plug two expression pedals (like the Fractal EV1) into the onboard jacks to control Wah, Whammy, Volume, or virtually anything else, and utilize MIDI or onboard control­lers for auto­mated dynamic effects. A pre­cision tuner, two global equalizers and a dedi­cated, global 4-Minute Stereo Looper are also built-in.

FX8-EDIT, a full-featured soft­ware editor, is also included free. In the tradi­tion of all Fractal Audio Systems products, the FX8 MKII is fully compatible with Fractal-Bot for preset sharing, easy backup and restore, plus firmware updates as new features are added.
