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 tweaked the lead a little and also added the rhythm in Y for the amp block. It's a little raspier and a little closer to the early albums. If you want to play songs from the second to fifth albums you need to tune down to C#. It's not an easy tone to capture and a lot of it is in the playing style. I'm working on a video with some song clips to demonstrate the sound. I'll post it up if I ever get it finished. My LP with P 90's at the bridge sound best. I tried my LTD with EMG's and it sounds good but does not capture the Sabbath vibe.
