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 16.x

Set Up Direct

Description The X-LOAD Reactive Load is a relatively unsung champion in my studio. It's a simple device (to look at) but it does an amazing 'middle-man' between any given tube amp and my Axe-FX III, which hosts the IRs and effects. This preset is put together for my own purposes, but if you have an X-LOAD you may find it useful too. It's eight Scenes of different cabs with some time-based effects. You can mod them all to your taste but remember to make sure 'MUTE' is your bypass preference on the cab block's Preamp page when you're playing around or you could run into trouble in other Scenes. For reference, I used Scene 1 in this video with a Marshall SLP. Rock on.
