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 There's one great old overdrive I can't seem to emulate with the Axe-FX III just yet, so I've dug out the Buffalo FX clone of the mighty Coloursound Power Booster for a video outing. I've paired the real-world overdrive with this HIPOWER-based preset and they get on really well. Try it with a stock standard Stratocaster. The video demo is at As a sort of bonus you'll find 7 other scenes with a bunch of fuzz/delay/reverb combinations based on the same HIPOWER platform. Tweak to taste.
