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 My quick attempt to replicate just one of the behemoth tones of Stef Carpenter from the Diamond Eyes period. Specifically, Rocket Skates. I Tone Matched the intro and paired the T-Match block with a couple of JM amps. I threw in some parallel reverb and compressed the amp signal path to tighten it up. For my own reference, I used an ESP 7 String Eclipse with EMGs. The actual song is double-tracked so I've thrown a little chorus in for loner purposes. Tweak to taste and rock out.
