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 Attempt at a Magnatone 260. Amp is Ampeg Porta-Bass, which per forum member Joe Bfstplk's advice is similar to the Magnatone. Script 45 with order at 4 in between amp and cabinet to simulate the vibrato circuit. 1st block is an EQ to ged rid of 130 Hz boom in my music room. Can be bypassed if not needed for your situation. Preset created on a single coil guitar, so you may need to adjust EQ and gain on the amp if using humbuckers.
