FracPad

  • Forum member and programmer AlGrenadine has created a handy tablet/phone editor for the Axe-Fx II and AX8: FracPad. It provides all the tools to edit and manage presets, blocks etc. without having to connect a computer.
  • More information on the forum.
  • It's commercial software, available for Android (6.0+) and iOS.

Connecting on Android

  • USB: requires a compatible USB adapter, called "USB OTG". It will work both on AX8 and AxeFx II/XL/XL+ models.
  • Bluetooth : For the AX8, the use of a Yamaha UD-BT01 is recommended. Launch the app "MIDI BLE Connect" PlayStore then FracPad

Connecting on iOS

  • USB : Possible only for the AX8 due to iOS system limitations. Use the "USB camera adapter" for Apple devices.
  • MIDI : Possible only for the AxeFX II/XL/XL+ due to AX8 MIDI-ports limitations. Use a 3rd party iOS MIDI interface like iRig2 MIDI. You can also use a general purpose USB-MIDI interface like Roland UM-One in conjunction with the "USB camera adapter" for Apple devices.
