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 III

Firmware Version 12.x

Set Up Direct

Description This is my edited version of Reaper's incredible Van Halen preset from the axe 2. It was the best I heard back then and I have done some editing to it for the Axe 3. Scene 1 is a clean with flange for Hear About It Later you will need to roll some highs off your guitar. Scene 2 is rhythms and scene 3 lead with phaser and delay added. The reverb sounds big but that is how it is on the record. The volume pedal is set to FC1 Pedal 4 so you may want to change that. for scene 2 and 3 cab you will need OH_412_MAR-CB_V30en_Lv-main or try a stock oh 412 cab
