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 preset with many possibilities(Clean/Overdrive/Fuzz) with nice Delay and reverb. The main delay is a Echorec sim from Simeon on the Fractal forum(I dig this delay alot) that trails long enough to gives that "used tape" ending. For the Cello kind of sound, i am using the scene 3 and swell in/out with the volume pedal. The scene 4 is the Shimmer. I am setting my presets as close to unity gain as possible on the utility mixer depending on the guitar i am using to create the patch. This time, i was using my MIJ Fender Strat. I hope you enjoy.
