WELL.. IT'S A BEAST!! AND AXE-EDIT IS JUST FANTASTIC
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say that I've now had the Fractal beast for 2 weeks and... well... It's a beast!! I got to grips with navigating and editing it pretty fast thanks to the greenhorn manual, and Axe edit is just fantastic, so far it's been pretty rock solid for me on a mac... and I really don't know what the fuss is about the Axe FX being 'complicated' to get around... the A-D controllers are an epic idea.. I was flying around the pages within an hour.
I've just done my first job with the Axe FX... a storming death metal track for a Ford Motors car advert for Europe... sounds awesome. I'll send you guys a link when it's out... or whenever I'm allowed.. whichever comes first!!... So you won't be getting this unit back!!... So if you're watching TV and you see a Ford ad with a guy barrel rolling down a flight of stairs... landing on a stretcher ...to a death metal track... that's the Axe FX... the screams are me... which wrecked my throat for 2 days BTW ;-)
Oh... and thanks for the Chocolates!! That really is a first to open a box of studio gear to find chocolates inside!!... Which my 9 year old daughter promptly demolished!!
