FAS released Firmware 1.02 for the FX8 Multi-Effects processor today. There are more Drive pedals G3’d than the previous Public Beta, but not all are converted. It also include some bug fixes.

FX8-Edit 1.0.2 has also been released, which is fully compatible with the new 1.02 for the FX8. It’s not clear if the firmware was held until the Editor was ready, but this would be a welcomed expectation.
