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 25.x

Set Up Direct

Description 1) Covers Mk3 (quite well), Perfect Strangers (well), and Stranger in Us All setup (might need more tweak). 2) Make sure to download and use "Wasted Sunsets" and "Son of Alerik" tone matches from Cabs for the scenes of the same name. 3) For live tone scenes, you need to find a cab IR that resembles pre-rola G12H30, can't share that one for obvious reasons. 4) The first 2 scenes are for HB equipped guitars (vintage PAF), all the rest for SC. I tuned all of it using my Tele, with a strat, feel free to tweak.
