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 The fun continues!

This preset now uses very, very close dial settings on the Express amp compared to what we saw Trey using on his Express in the rig run down videos he did during the Dick's weekend run. The settings are definitely darker than I had things set before and the tone is much smoother, less hairy, with the amp set this way.

I've updated the Delay 2 block so it does that chase thing that Trey was using all summer tour. Delay 2 also has CS 1 assigned to the Master Feedback parameter. If you have CS 1 on a switch on your FC you can use this to send the block into a deep feedback mode. I call the switch "DUB" on my setup -- it's very dub-delay sounding.

I've also updated the Jedi Knight scene. It now uses a tremolo block by default on hard chop. The chop rate is controlled by External 2 so you can roll it faster-slower with an expression pedal the way Trey does. External 2 is also assigned to Pitch 1 so you can use it for whammy acrobatics.
