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.

Fractal Product Axe-FX III

Firmware Version 22.x

Set Up Direct

Description I built this patch for a Chapman Railboard w/ passive pickups.TRS output on instrument. Tip side goes to (melody) input 3. Ring side goes to (Bass) input 4. Scenes 1-4 are using dual preamps & scenes 5-8 are dual amp models. This Railboard is GK ready so I added input 2 for any Roland guitar synth. VG-99, GR-55 etc... In addition, inputs 3 & 4 are wired directly to output 4 so I can use an external tuner or send these signals to a DAW. Have fun!
