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 Cygnus

Set Up Direct

Description This is the preset I use in my playthrough of the song Whassup feat. Derek Sherinian from my album "All Things Guitar". It is based on the Komet 60 model with a pedal in front. I also use the Fractal Wah for all the Wah stuff. The actual song on the album was recorded with a real Komet 60 amp and a Nordvang ยด83 Drive. The preset has basically one sound (Scene 1) which is the lead tone I use all the way through except for the middle section where I use Scene 2 with a flanger. Feel free to customize the sound to your guitar and playing style. Cheers Simon
