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.

Set Up Pwr. Amp + Cab

Description Two of my favourite tones from the AX8 era were Ola's dual rectifier rhythm and Ryan from Plague Scythe Studios' tonematch of the Fortin Meshuggah amplifier. Here I have translated the two tones into the FM9 architecture and combined them into one patch. The power/cab section is a bit of guesswork because I have these bypassed in my setup (straight into FX return of my Archon combo), so fiddle to your heart's content.
