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.

Set Up Direct

Description I demo a lot of pedals on my Youtube channel. Most of them require a good, clean amp platform. For years I went for a HIWATT, Fender ABxxx, Marshall JTM45... the usual classics which I'm fortunate to own decent examples of. A couple of years ago I started using the model equivalents in the Axe-FX. I dropped the impedance down to 90K for fuzzes (thank you, AustinBuddy!) and I don't think I've had more than one or two negative comments in some several million hits. So, here's my go-to preset of late that will give you 8 Scenes of cleans with or without time-based effects. My favourite? Always the Brit JM45 unless I'm covering a Muff, then it's usually the HIWATT. Have fun, make something good. Oh, an example..? Here's one I shot today with a real MKI fuzz.
