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.

Description Written in "Quantum" Rev. 9 Beta, this is in response to Admin's suggestion to give the Plexi 6550 with Cab #61 a go for some EVH action. I've dressed it up a little with phase, flange and reverb blocks (thank you VanDanzi) and given the amp a few tweaks to suit my ears and guitar. You'll have to do the same, no doubt. I make no claims to accuracy, just fun. Enjoy and make it your own. A short video demo can be viewed at
