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 I was inspired by John Petrucci's recent rig breakdown YouTube video. I noticed that he is using something similar on his Axe-fx 3 preset #82 (Petrucci Rig). He has one voicing detuned down 5 cents and the other up 5 cents. There is also an LFO filter automatically modulating them by about a cent. His delay times are a little long for me, so I shortened them down to 5ms and 10ms. I have 6 sounds: Clean JM45 Vox low gain Marshall crunch Atomica High Gain Lead Marshall Lead Atomica
