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 This is the first edition of the "Greco Metal Series." This tone is both cutting saturated. It was created using my ESP LTD Deluxe Horizon 1001. I used the EMG 81 in the bridge position. If the gain is too much for your taste, pull back on your guitar's volume knob a bit or to what sounds good to you.There is also a GEQ at the end of the chain, which is bypassed. When turned on, it makes a subtle difference in the high end. Unfortunately, I had to Tone Match my own tone because I originally used a 3rd party IR. I have made several adjustments so that this is officially my tone. Tweak as you see fit and enjoy!
