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 A Tone-Matched Alien Ant Farm "Smooth Criminal" cover Patch, featuring a tone match of Terry Korso's rig to the best of my ability (scouring forums to find what he uses). Works wonders for alternative rock with a bit more gain than usual. Just switch between the Tone-Match block and the Cab, depending on your guitar! I used my Sterling JP170D with DiMarzio Crunch Lab in the bridge as a test. Hope you enjoy my first shared patch, and enjoy playing the greatest song on the face of the Earth: "Smooth Criminal" as covered by Alien Ant Farm, originally by Michael Jackson.
