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 You were trying to cross the border, right? Walked right into that Imperial ambush, same as us, and that thief over there. Anyways, this is a nice little preset I made to approximate an Andy Timmons sort of tone using my Les Paul w/ Seth Lover's and a parts caster w/ Gibson hum bucker sized P90's. Scene 1: Core tone. With the drive block off, it's way too quiet, so I have X set up for leads and Y set up for rhythm or turn guitar volume down to Clea up. Scene 2: Basic Fender Twin Reverb clean tone. I made this with the output level on the Axe FX all the way up, into an Apollo Twin (stereo). So it may be really quiet depending on your usual setup.
