Jumped down the Fractal rabbit hole a couple months ago, doubt I'll ever look back. It really is amazing and as I do Bob and Jerry parts, as well as Floyd, Cream, Airplane, Phish, Beatles, etc in my current band, it's awesome to play Fender, Boogie, Marshall, Vox, and Komet amps all in the same night.
I have a couple FRFR powered speakers and prefer to play through them, even in my studio (rather than connecting to my audio interface). Less things to turn on to get playing and since I'm playing through them live, I like to work on my presets through the speakers I'll be playing through. Now I have one in my studio and one in my rehearsal space so all have to carry is my Guitar, a cable, the AX8, and my expression pedal.
That's all I need! To a gig I bring the AX8 and expression pedal (in a RIGID case), 2 XLRS (one AX8>Powered Speaker and one Powered Speaker>FOH), a guitar cable, and my guitar. Ok, I typically bring my mic, cable, stand, iPad, guitar stand, and a couple extra guitar and XLR cables too.
