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 My latest version of my Tone King Imperial Mk II. The rhythm channel is pretty easy to imitate. The lead channel, because of the mid-bite control, is a lot harder. On the real amp I tend to run on the lead channel, with it somewhere between 9-10, the tone control at noon and the mid-bite at noon, depending on the guitar, and control the amp from the guitar's volume control. At full volume on the guitar, the real amp will be singing and sustain/controlled feedback on the guitar is easy. The scenes help those who aren't comfortable using their guitar old-school. The rotary block uses channels A-C, with A being slow, B is fast, and C is braked. Set up the switch for rotary so that a long-press increments the channels with a wrap-around and it'll work very conveniently.
