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.

Description This preset demonstrates a challenge that was presented at Axe-Fest 2013 during the "Total Control with the MFC-101 and Mission Pedals" session on Day 1.

The challenge was to create a patch that had three separate blocks in, all controlled by a single MFC-101, that could be switched between using scenes.

This patch shows the complete solution in effect. It uses X/Y states on the blocks and scenes to select which effect is in use and being controlled by a single Mission expression pedal attached as External 1 to the Axe-Fx II.

Scene 1 is an auto-engaged WAH. Scene 2 is auto-engaged PIT block in classic whammy mode. Scene 3 is a VOL block for swells.
