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 13.x

Set Up Direct

Description Here's the patch I use for Def Leppard songs with my cover band. The tempo is currently set for Photograph but if you use tap tempo, or want to edit it, it could work for most things Def Leppard. From my understanding Phil Collen used a Rockman for the recording of the classic Def Leppard albums. To get closer to this sound I downloaded Leon Todd's Rockman Cab blocks. YOU WILL NEED THEM if you want the patch to work as designed. You'll want the Rockman 4 "cab" in the cab slot. Other than that it should be ready to go. Hope ya dig it. Cheers!!! Just updated to firmware 14.00 but didn't get the option on axe change (just FYI)... No parameters should have changed though.
