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.

Description A tribute to John Mayer and his amazing clean tones.

This re-work of my first preset uses an ODS-100 Clean model as the base for the tones and blend of two IRs based around cabinets that have EV E12L speakers in them from the factory banks.

The cleans are big, bold, in-your-face with just a touch of break-up on them to help with cut with you use this preset with a Silver Sky guitar. The tones work well with humbucker-equipped guitars as well, though you'll get more breakup and might want to back off the Input Trim in the AMP block a bit.

Not based off any specific album sound, though I was listening to some live shows from his last tour and some of the recent Dead & Co shows while I was making this.
