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 A preset featuring a little trick I always use when recording bass guitar in a DAW : doubling the track, with a LPF on one and HPF on the other, and a crossover around 250 hz. This way I can add some drive on the HPF channel while keeping solid bass frequencies on the other - because the more drive you add, the more bass you suck. For this video I used an Ibanez with 3+ (a least) years old strings, they're almost dead so with a proper instrument tweaking will probably be necessary. Please visit my Axe Fx II blog for a demo video of tweaking this preset :
