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.

Author Burgs

Fractal Product Axe-FX II XL+

Firmware Version Q-4.x

Set Up Direct

Description My attempt at a Dave Gilmour sound. It was thrown together to demonstrate a guitar that I have for sale (see: and because I had an old Total Guitar backing tracking at the ready that was very Floyd. There are four scenes, each with a Tube Driver, Rotary, Compressor, a couple of delays and Hall Reverb. Have fun. You may need to adjust some of the levels as I wasn't too fussed when I whipped this up. Also, the guitar's pickups were fairly dark; average Strat pickups are a tad brighter so you may need to tweak the top-end of things a little.

Band/Artist/Player David Gilmour
