Axe Change -The Official Site for Fractal Audio Presets, Cabs and More


Determining Your Setup

The "Setup" filter helps you to focus on those presets best-suited for how you use your Axe-Fx.

FRFR/Direct presets (like all of the Factory presets) are designed for "full-range flat-response" systems such as studio monitors, PAs, headphones, etc.

Pwr. Amp + Cab presets use real power amps and guitar speakers.

4-Cable Method (aka :4CM") presets require a special setup with connectors both in front of and in the effects loop of a real amp.

Fx Loop presets in the loop of a real amp. A loop may be SERIES or PARALLEL and the preset needs to be built accordingly.

Gtr Amp Input presets should be used in front of a (real) head or combo. Guitar->Axe-Fx->Amp Input.

Other setups also exist (e.g. combinations of the above).

The Axe-Fx II manual (chapter three) includes more information about setups.

"Cab" search results ignore the settings of this filter.

Set Up Direct

Description My take on a heavily compressed, edgy country tone, as might be used by Brad Paisley and his boutique rig(s). This patch screams for a single coil bridge pickup (or at least a bridge-middle pickup). I have tried it on both a Tele and a Strat. Very bitey. The Master Volume on the amp is the biggest tonal control - less master/more level = cleaner; more master/less level = dirtier. Note: This uses a mix of a 1x12 (AC-15) and a 4x10 ('59 Bassman). I think it sounds even better with Fremen's Vox 4x12 V30 IR. I am trying to talk him into uploading it here.
