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 My attempt at David Gilmour's 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond' tone from the live album 'Delicate Sound of Thunder'. Done with a 1989 Strat+ with original gold Lace Sensors, direct into the Axe-FX II, and output into a pair of RCF 12's. Most of the patch should be played with a single coil neck pickup. At the end of the solo, switch to single coil bridge, and then use the middle for the transition into the tune. Feedback welcome!
