Formant: supported by which Fractal Audio products?
- Axe-Fx II: yes.
- FX8: yes.
- AX8: yes.
Formant and X/Y switching
- The Formant block does not support X/Y switching.
- Cliff: "The Formant on the Axe-Fx II is identical to the Ultra." source
- Because of the resonant frequencies of the Formant filter, it's easy to make the digital signal clip. Make sure there's enough headroom in the preset level.

- Talk box in Wikipedia
- A real talkbox doesn't go through a speaker, so experiment with leaving out a Cab block.
