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

Firmware Version 7.0

Set Up Direct

Description Swiss Army Knife Acoustic Sound. I used my piezo output. TMA Block is Dave Matthew's Electric/Acoustic Sound. This feeds two cabs (model of guitar body) mic'd differently and panned hard L/R. If you mute the Cabs and/or the PEQ's you get a very tight compressed direct acoustic sound. You can mute the TMA and get a great traditional acoustic sound or any combination. If you use magnetic pups then you can get a good hollow body electric sound too.
