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 Axe-FX II XL patch replicating Slash's iconic tone on Sweet Child O' Mine, shown in action here: Guitar used is a Les Paul with Seymour Duncan APH-2s. Scene 1 is for the main riff (also used before the mini-solos), Scene 2 is for the mini-solos, and Scene 3 is for the main solo and outro. There is a TM block in the signal path that I used along with EQing and tweaking to capture that last bit of SCOM goodness - disabling it will still leave you with a good AFD approximation. I designed this patch around the ML Fortus SM57 A1 IR from ML Sound Lab's Impulses for Destruction cab pack - obviously, this IR will need to be purchased separately.
