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 Direct

Description I did this preset to backup a singer on Coldplay's "Fix you" with no other musicians. My original "Acoustic simulator" preset already had a rotary controlled by the expression pedal 1 but I needed more here : a convincing organ sound (I borrowed a block from the "Organic" stock preset and tweaked it), a shimmer, and a distortion sound for the instrumental break. The cab use the "ThisOne" IR : Here's a demo of the preset ; everything is controlled by two expression pedals : Visit my blog for more demos and presets (V10 will be uploaded soon) :
