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.

Fractal Product Axe-FX III

Firmware Version 20.x

Set Up Direct

Description A current version of my old Starwards preset, freshened up a tiny bit for FW 20.02 (Pb2). This is a delicate preset. It's meant for pinky or volume pedal swells, not picking so much. Pay attention to the Great Eagles and Morgoth Scenes as the volume can get away from you (clip) if you overdo it. If that's a problem I suggest placing a compressor at the end of the signal path to act as a limiter. Other than that, I hope you have some fun with it. There's a video demo at What's going on with the Scene names? Tolkien. Blame him!
