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 You've been warned, VERY HOT SIGNAL... Might want to adjust gain from dirt box and amp depending on your guitar... Hopefully ya dig... I watched Zakk's rig rundown and based my pedal/amp selections of that... of course a lot is going to be in the fingers.The phaser and flanger are there if you want em, but the chorus to my ears is essential to Zakk's live tone (in the studio he said the chorusing is often the effect of the multitracking)
