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 our Metallica Master Of Puppets "Clone Tone" preset for the AXE FX 2. We used the USA IIC+ model (Mesa Boogie Mark IIC+) but swapped all of the poweramp setting with the ones used with the Brit 800 model (Marshall JCM 800) to replicate Metallica's use of Mesa Marks as Preamps Slaved into JCM800's as Poweramp setup from around '85/'86 .
