    Jp's for JM's. JP2C Green (and Red!). Jazzmaster Preset. Always Free.

    My Palir Jazzmaster (aka Imperial) is very fond of the JP2C Green channel. The Red channel gets a look-in as well. I've written an 8-Scene Preset to share with you. All will be explained in this video. Have a great weekend! Preset link: http://axechange.fractalaudio.com/detail.php?preset=6987

    Axe-Fx 3 Cleans much better than Axe-Fx 2? Comparison/opinion about.

    I'm an AxeFx2 owner and i just saw some videos on youtube demonstrating new AxeFx3 clean sounds (almost all fender amps). I felt impressed, they seems to sound really much better than those in AxeFx2. Is it only a sensation of mine or there has been that great improvement i felt about? I'm...

    Dreamy Clean (Magnetic/Piezo Split)

    This preset is designed for a Piezo equipped guitar running a split TRS cable (using both magnetic and Piezo pickups) for an amazing dreamy clean/acoustic sound. I used my Musicman Majesty JP 7 (Magnetic pickup set to middle single coil mode) Let me know what you think...

    Versatile "My Morning Jacket" style rig?

    Trying to create a single preset that encompasses most of the tones MMJ uses. So far I got the clean tone down: Clean Fender type amp, Delay and reverb obviously, maybe a compressor. It's the dirty sounds I struggle with. I'd like to just add a drive pedal into the preset to get the dirty...

    Dweezil Zappa Clean Sound

    So I'm pretty new to the whole Axe Fx thing, as well as this forum so apologies if this has been asked a lot or something. My unit is the XL+, for reference. I am trying to figure out how Dweezil get's his clean tones, as seen in this vid at this mark-- I've heard him mention how it's suppose...

    Clean ambient preset

    Hi I wanted to share this ambient preset. Before I sold my Kemper I tried my best to emulate one of my favorite ambient sounds ( mostly the effects ) with my Fractal Ax8. I usually use this preset with my Kiesel Vader 8 string for two hand tapping and swells. I leave this here for all of you...

    80's Direct Sound For Stratocaster

    Here's my latest preset for that clean 80's DI Strat sound. It's geared more towards live because the highs are tamed a bit. Crank it through your FRFR at gig volume and it'll come alive. A few months ago there was a request for a patch to cover Lucky Star by Madonna. I tried my best to make...

    Down - Stone the Crow (clean) Preset?

    I'd like feedback as to what people hear being used for the cleans in this song? Chorus, or maybe subtle Phaser? Delay? I'm thinking of using a Taylor acoustic patch (axechange) and adding some chorus to start with but want to get it right. Thanks. Sounds start when guitars open this YouTube...
  10. ProgressiveRocco


    What's up guys!:) I've decided to create some mix-ready patches using JUST factory cabs and sell them for a very reasonable price! This patch was inspired by the tones of the L.A. session guys (hence the name L.A. Studio Clean), like Michael Thompson, Steve Lukather and Michael Landau, just to...

    Removing Rust for Ibanez Zero Resistance Tremelo

    I've finally been really getting to the down and dirty in caring for all my guitars. (Polishing, fret polishing , condiitoning the fretboard etc ) But I honestly have no clue how to clean up my ZR tremelo on my Ibanez S520EX. I've been pretty religiously using the Nomad products they have worked...

    Hey fellow fractal users!! Mike Spreitzer from DevilDriver here. I uploaded 6 presets into the Axe Change yesterday. 3 high-gain and 3 cleans. Feel free to tell me how much you love or hate them. Love the feedback.

    Wish Model of the clean channel (1A) from Hughes & Kettner Triamp MKI

    Don't know how familiar any of you are with the H&K Triamp. I would say that the overdrive channels from the Triamp are well covered with other modified Marshall type models, but the clean channel (1A) is unique among all amps I've owned - and that's a bunch! It's super clean and a little...

    Acoustic tone match with synth block!

    Hey everyone, here's another acoustic tone match but with some shredding! Also added the synth block just to add some thickness which worked really nice in this mix. Let me know what you think!

    Music Man JP15-7 ... Clean!

    I recently took possession of this incredible instrument. I'm no shredder to speak of so I'm using it to try and expand my creativity in other ways. It features a mighty piezo facility so I've written a single preset that gives me: 1. Clean Triptik with Timmy OD; 2. Piezo/Acoustic accomodation...

    Cant get my "Clean" tones Clean

    I'm trying to get a really pristine Clean tone but no matter what I do I get distortion when playing to hard. Clip light never turns Red, and the input light never trickles the red. I'm using a custom guitar with Emg 57/66-7H. I usually play very lightly, however when I want to build a...

    Tone match (Acoustic)

    Hey guys, tried something interesting and ran some acoustic tracks through the tone match and played it on my 8 string electric. I think I made a really unique tone. Let me know what you think!

    Vibrato-King musings. Vid and preset.

    I was quite stunned when I fired up this preset with the Jag last night. Just gorgeous. Latest firmware build (7b2) and a custom Jag that a friend built for himself. Luckily for me, he eventually offloaded it - to me! Killer. Preset link...

    ODS Cleans in Q7.00b with a St Vincent - Video - Preset

    As the title suggests, folks. Try the preset for yourself and tweak to satisfaction. Q7 sounds really good, but then they all do! The preset: http://axechange.fractalaudio.com/detail.php?preset=5069

    Cleans distorted after upgrading Q3.03 to Q6.01

    I upgraded my Axe-Fx II Mark I from Q3.03 to Q6.01 and now most of my presets have more gain. I even have the Global Amp Gain set to -12.00 dB. I also tested on my Axe-Fx II XL+ and set the preset versions to Q3.xx and still had the issue. I didn't want to upgrade to Q6.02 because I read some...

    classic jazz tone

    I have an axe fx 2 since four months - Im still having a big smile whenever I switch it on. It sounds so great and every update makes it even better (thanks Cliff!). It was simply the best investment I've made. I play jazz, mostly "classic" swing/bop. Till now I mainly use the presets which I...

    Help getting this tone + effect

    Hello fellow forumites and FAS lovers. I am trying to get as close as what is heard on Wolves in the Throne Room's - Crystal Ammunition interlude that goes from minute 6 to minute 8 (yep, interlude, the song is an epid ode of almost 15 minutes) so any feedback will be greatly appreciated. It...

    Clean volume

    hi all Possibly another noob question... Sorry! I am running an AxeFx 2 through a Mesa power amp. I absolutely love the sound I'm getting! Running a tube power amp has really made all the difference. The main problem I continue to have is balancing volume between my clean presets and my gain...

    Problem with modifiers! FIXED IN Q3.02!

    Hello all, This is my first post, but I've been lurking since last October, learning as much as I can before I got my AX8. So, I just got the ax8 and am loving it. There was a concern about being able to have a good clean and a good dirty sound in the same preset with reasonable switching...

    Some jazz blues with a hollowbody and Quantum 2.0

    Couple of choruses of a Bory's B-120 through a Shiva! Tasty. Loving the new sound and feel of the firmware. Also very happy to see that the CPU usage is more efficient all around these days. Plenty of processing headroom!

    Rack Lid Storage

    Thinking of ways to store cables inside my 6u/4u rack lid. I came across this - http://sierracases.com/SKB-3SKB-BB60-Small-Accessory-Lid-Pouch.html Price is kinda high though. I'm thinking a pouch with doublesided tape would work well. Anyone do something like this?
