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.

Fractal Product Axe-Fx II

Firmware Version 12.x

Set Up Direct

Description Note Well: I was dialling this in with all-mahagony PRS Standard 24 that tends to be a pretty dark guitar even on the bridge pickup. If your guitar is lower output and brighter, you might find this patch treble-heavy. Adjust to suit your guitar!

Was playing around with the new Dimension D setting on the Chorus block introduced in 12.03. The D settings are Mode 1 on the unit it models -- light rate and depth for a little warble but a lot of stereo spread.

Scene 1 - Clean-ish
Scene 2 - Grittier
Scene 3 - Oh my there's the drive!
Scene 4 - And now some delay -- get y'er 80's power ballad on!
Scene 5 - What's that you say? You want MOAR DRIVE? you got it! Stack those drives, close your eyes and let it take you awaaaaaaayyy.....
