2 space drawer for laptop and backup shit like strings and stuff. (the laptop would be purely for backing up presets on the g-system and axe-fx...or playing solitaire, and checking facebook between songs.


This one's got a pedal tray for pedal based shit like a wireless or ISP decimator, because I have no idea how well the axe-fx noise gate works (general consensus is that the g-systme gate is "meh")

Yeah, I've been considering getting an axe-fx. I've got an 8 space rack the furman, tuner (blinky lights) and the g-system. I just wanted to see what the rig would look like all put together.

Heh... for a second, i thought you actually had an Axe-FX and a G-System. I have to say, i'm tempted to keep the G-System to use as a MIDI controller for the Axe-FX when i get it, but it seems like an awfully expensive MIDI controller!

About the only advantage I could see to keeping the G-System to use as your MIDI controller would be the pedal loops, which would be extremely handy if you plan on keeping a few pedals around.
you can also use the g-system to route any other effects you might have. Or pre-amps if you're a tube die-hard. Kinda like i did with my XXX and routed the loops so that my OD808 was in front of my XXX, and my ISP and MXR EQ were in the FX loop.

With the Fractal MFC-101 coming soon, i'd probably want to go for a more integrated solution. I can't imagine the programming i'd have to do in order to get the G-System to interface nicely with the Axe-FX.

The Fractal controller has been "close" to being released for like 2 years now :lol: It's the Duke Nukem of MIDI controllers.

I want one so bad, but I wouldn't hold out for anything. On the plus side, when it DOES get released, there's going to be a LOT of cheap Ground Control Pros and Liquid Foots available.

I wish Fractal would release an effects only version of the AxeFX.

A 1U version of the effects and, and a separate 1U version of the cab sims. Same space, 2 units, more flexibility. A fractal axe fx power amp would be nice. I know they already have powered cabs and wedges, and now a tiny little atomic power amp, but a rackmount version would be baller.

They've said that they're announcing the MFC-101's "imminent" release at the New York Amp Show in a couple of weeks.
