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 This preset is adapted from a two part YouTube video tutorial done by Anthony Ferguson a couple of years ago to recreate EVH's "Brown Sound." While I have a Les Paul, as does Anthony, I did not get that overdriven sound from his settings. I think that is primarily because he was using Gibson's Dirty Fingers pickups, & I have the tamer 490R & 498T's. In this preset I boosted the Input Drive to compensate for the weaker pickups. I also preferred a different delay (2290 W) & put the reverb in series - not parallel. I think it could still be tweaked further but with my setup ( RME UFX interface & stereo FRFR Event 20/20 bi-amplified speakers) it is closer than when I started. The sound is a bit diffuse, but perhaps others can fine tune it more.
