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 AX8

Firmware Version Q-9.x

Set Up Direct

Description Q9.04 John Frusiante RHCP tones.

Setup for AMP block X/Y switch -- the X side is RAWK side. It's a fat JCM800 tone that's got keeeerang and edge on it. The Y side is the smmooooooth side. It's a JTM45 tone that's clean with some chime.

The JCM800 side will need to be tuned to your guitar and pickups. If you find it too bright, roll back the Bright Cap setting and increase the Input Gain setting to bring back the clipping. If you find it too dark, increase the Bright Cap setting and decrease the Input Gain to keep it on the edge of clipping instead of full-on clipped.
