    Van Halen "Ice Cream Man"

    My take on this solo. Recorded over 40 years ago and still hard!!! EVH is the man.

    Van Halen - "Runnin' With The Devil" Intro (Van Halen preset in the making)

    Hi all, i've noticed lots of people have been trying to re-create that VH1 tone recently and i have been on the same trail. I've been working on this preset for a few weeks now and i'm trying to get close to each track on the first album. I saw @levipeto post his preset yesterday and i must say...

    Van Halen - Eurption (Guitar Cover)

    Hey guys, found time to record one of my fav solos. I'm running direct from the Axe Fx to Logic X pro; no post processing done. I believe the patch is a Friedman BE/HBE with a TS808 in front (no drive, only level up) Delay and Reverb. The guitar is a 2011 Charvel San Dimas MIJ, with BKP...

    Hells Bells Guitar Cover - EVH Wolfgang, Fractal , using Mark Day New Frankie Preset

    Best Metal/Hard Rock sounds.

    I´ve been using the original Fractal AX8 presets to record some songs. I use: - preset 3-7 (5153 Red) for my heavier sounds. I search for a sound close to Anthrax, Testament, Sepultura, Kreator; - preset 3-8 (Savageness) for hard rock. I search for a sound close to Van Halen, Satriani, early...

    Van Halen Vibes

    Hi All! Here's a little funny riff I came up with last night jamming, it's obviously highly inspired by EVH, so I also tried to improvise more - less in that manner :) Using my Axe Fx 2 and Charvel USA custom Guthrie Govan guitar, as usual :) Now, I am not sure I can share this preset if...

    Van Halen

    What's up dudes! :cool: I've decided to create some mix-ready patches using JUST factory cabs and sell them for a very reasonable price! Here's my 4th patch, my take on Eddie’s tone on the first Van Halen record. Last week was the 40th anniversary of its release, such a game changer… still one...

    VAN HALEN - Somebody Get Me a Doctor | Video Cover| BRIT 800 #34!!!!

    My humble Cover of this great great song. The new Brit 800 #34 is absolutely stellar and Q7 is all another league. (Beta 2 disn't sound as good as the final version, maybe I did something wrong but now it's incredible) No copying EVH tone here, just trying to see how the JBM works in a old...

    Audio clip of my new 'Eruption/You Really Got Me' preset added to my site

    Here is a link to an audio clip of my new 'Eruption/You Really Got Me' preset. It's a bunch of random early EVH 'noodling' with a standard tuned EBBM Axis guitar. The 'Pitch' block is dropping it down a 1/2 step. It actually does sound better on a 1/2 step dropped tuned guitar without the...

    I just want to use my AXE-FX standard as a Flanger pedal with my 5150

    Hello, This post is for me to see how much I have learned, if any, about using this AXE-FX standard. What I want to do is use the AXE-FX as a Flanger pedal, and nothing else. I want to use it with my Peavey 5150 2x12 combo. The PEAVEY has an FX-send and FX-return on the back. My thoughts on...

    Eruption/You've Really Got me Now - live cover

    When the camera comes closer to the stage you can hear the sound on the recording change quite a bit, but it's still cool to see live AX8 video. I used Moke's preset found here: http://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/eruption-plexi-preset.111707/

    My live direct 5153 preset

    I did post this in the discussion section along with a video but always forget about this section that IS for presets. Here's the preset I used at my last few gigs. I ran direct to FOH and monitored through my CLR and IEMs. It's laid out like this (if you don't feel like watching the video but...

    Van Halen - Eruption with FAS Reverb

    Just started playing with FAS Reverb, and here's a quick try of Eruption. Few mistakes here and there, though... :) I recorded dry guitar with Axe FX II and then applied FAS Reverb in Logic. Btw, Reverb is AWESOME (that's why I cranked MIX more, compared to original recording, lol), too many...

    If you could buy one cab pack?

    What is everyone's favorite cab pack? Is there one that just stands out above the rest? My favorite Van Halen tone is probably 1984 or Van Halen II Any recommendations on cabs to achieve that? I'm also a huge Andy Timmons fan
