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 II XL+

Firmware Version Q-3.x

Set Up Direct

Description Built in Q4.00 for an Ernie Ball Cutlass which has pretty modest output 60's single coils, I've teamed a '60 Brownface 6G4 Super and its cab (stereo) with a heap of effects for Scenes 1, 2 & 3, and then gone to another extreme for Scene 4 which features a HIWATT DR103 rig, again in stereo, with a Muff and whatever else you want to throw in - Gilmour-esque. It's fun, works well with these low output pickups, and you can view a practical demo at shortly after I post this preset.
