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 So, this is my take on the Boston tone, distortion and clean , 4 scenes , rhythm, Harmony,Lead and clean. I did add more bass to the clean, so it doesn't sound so thin. I did allot of research online looking at what others did and that set the road map for this. I tested this through several speakers like my JBL monitors, Friedman asc-12, and through my peavey 50/50 classic into a EVH 2x12 cab. On my end it gets extremely close to the Boston ton. Enjoy.
