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 Q-7.x

Set Up Direct

Description Holdsworth lead sound using two multidelay blocks to emulate the UD Stomp delays. (Settings taken from the UD Stomp manual). The patch uses the Dual Rec Orange Vintage, which was one of allan's favourite amps. I've tried to replicate his signal path from the 90's, where he was using a TC booster in front of the amp and EQ in the fx loop. IMPORTANT - use the volume and tone controls on your guitar to fine tune the amount of gain, dynamic response and top end frequencies. There's a sweet spot....find it!
