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 XL+

Firmware Version Q-8.x

Set Up Pwr. Amp + Cab

Description This is my own preset based on getting hi gain without a lot of noise, tight bass and lots of pick attack. Think greg howe or van halen II (with less noise). I've been working towards my own tones with the Axe-Fx. This is still a work in progress though I wanted to share to see if anyone else is trying to do the same. There is a cab sim in place and I do run this through an external cab sometimes with my KRK monitors. There are multiple scenes to add some other affects and the disables the cab sims for running into an external cab.
