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 ARES 2

Set Up Direct

Description I use two drives. One fuzz and one treble boost and the 1959 SLP Jump to get close. Play with the two drive dials in the basic amp page marked Treble Drive and Normal Drive to get you close. You might want to turn down the Crunch and Harmonics on the pre amp page depending on your setup as well as experiment with the levels on the two drive blocks. I made the tone match from a Flac file of Into The Void from Master Of Reality. The first 8 seconds are guitar and the match sounds pretty much exact on my setup with my Les Paul.
