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 This is the preset I used for the Reptile Cover I made. ( You'll need two ML Sound Lab cab packs for this to work as intended: ML Zilla (the Bulb one) and ML USA Djent. The first Cab is ML Zilla v30 SM57 1. The second one is ML USA Djent SM57 A1 at -1.88 db volume. The Periphery guys used these exact cabs on Hail Stan. It's great for jamming along the PIV songs but it does require some EQing when recorded. (mainly to tame some harsh frequencies in the 2-5k Range) I dipped some of the lower mids (-2 db at around 300 Hz) for the Reptile Cover simply because the low G got a little muddy. I hope you enjoy it! It really works well if you wanna jam some PIV songs! Cheers :)
