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 XL

Firmware Version Q-10.x

Set Up Direct

Description Simple Ambient preset with shimmer and drones. Works best in FRFR(I am using an Atomic CLR) or FOH(With 31hz and 63hz frequencies down to -11DB on the Global EQ). I also prefer using a Volume pedal with this kind of preset to allow more control on swells if need be. This preset can be usefull in Post-Rock,Ambient or P&W sets. I'am creating my presets as close as possible to the unity gain(0dB) on the Utility Out mixer depending on the guitar i am using. For this one, i am using a Japanese Fender Strat with SSS. I hope you enjoy
