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 15.x

Set Up Direct

Description I re-visited this seminal track's tones with the latest firmware 15.02 to see what has changed and if we can improve on the FW 10.xx takes I'd done previously.

I'm really pleased with the results. I think the Fender amp changes that have occurred since 10.xx and the ultra-res 1x12 Deluxe Verb Mix IR have made dialing in delicate Fender tones with your Strat easier than ever. I barely moved the controls on the AMP block from stock to build this patch.
