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 i used the Bgelais metallica GOLD PACK 2.0 for the IR download for free, you can find him on youtube just type in BGelais Metallica gold IR pack and you'll find it and then download the IR's from the link in the description and use those as your cab for this preset i used the justice,shortest straw harvester dyers eve and use them on any scene and each scene has a different amp settings. basically just test out all justice cabs with each scene until you like the sound. Or use the Shortest Straw IR located IR type in AJFA tone fractal fm3 on Google and you’ll see it somewhere in one of the Fractal Fourm pages you will have to search hard for it but if you find it it’s the best sound so far I believe it’s under a ax8 patch but if you find that one it works really well with all the scenes and you’ll be close. I know it’s not perfect but I’m gonna keep tweaking it until it’s right on and any of your help would be great so we can all have the perfect AJFA tone.
