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 came across some free IRs by BGelais on youtube and an old tutorial for setting up these IRs on an AX8 from Plague Scythe Studios. My preset is based around BGelais IR's, as guidelines from a Plague Scythe Studios youtube video which created similar tones for the AX8. I had to make some modifications to align with the AX3 and made other modifications to taste. You will need to download the IRs from BGelais' youtube channel. This preset is from Kill'em All to the Black Album
