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-6.x

Set Up Direct

Description This patch includes the Adam Hann's rhythm tone from She's American, plus a fuzz and term that come close to the solo tone in Love Me. Does not have the reverb sound from Matty's guitar; haven't figured that one out yet. Keys to the sound are the strong compression, JCM 800 amp, double cabs in series, and the three effects. Chorus, flanger, and phaser are all set to 100% mix and 0% depth, so they provide a thick, even sound that doesn't scream "FX!!!" Amp is set to high volume low gain, lot of bass and mid to thicken the wimpy split start sound. Tone made for a strat, pickup position 4. Full volume, role of the highs a bit.
