    It's HERE! You can now purchase the 1000+ Naked Amps TonePack for your Axe-Fx III!

    This product is not a simple port-over from the 700+ TonePack. It's a new design that takes great advantage of the Axe-Fx III's firmware, new Amp and Block channels, and new Cab block. The tones were dialed in from scratch on ARES firmware 1.x.

    ***News: the long-awaited update for "Bank A" under firmware 5.07 is now complete and available now to existing and new customers. The update for Bank B will become available sometime before July.***

    Many presets use Factory Cabs chosen from the 2048 new Cab IRs available inside the Axe-Fx III.

    This is the best guitar tone product I have ever created. Warning: I could play with this preset collection for days without eating, and you may too!

    Every amp or amp channel modeled by Fractal Audio to date (263 as of July 2018) is represented in a preset scene at least twice, some as many as 20 times. For example, there are extra presets for some classic amps like the Matchless DC30, the Diezel VH4 and Herbert, the Bogner Ecstasy, and the Marshall JMP-1 preamp.

    This TonePack preset collection features four to eight scenes into each of the 149 amp-specific presets. Most amp presets have 8 scenes. There are also 22 mostly new bonus presets I threw in for fun, including the "JimiLondon" presets from the 700+ TonePack.

    Each amp has at least a lower and higher gain setting; many have a clean, maybe a gritty, some have a crunch, and some amps are also dimed. The descriptive scene names usually give you pretty good idea of what to expect.

    Here is Fractal and guitar virtuoso Cooper Carter playing EVERY amp model in two YouTube videos, using the Axe-Fx III's 1000+ Naked Amps TonePack base presets for each riff or song clip! (Cooper adds his own effects in a few cases).






    The preset design includes:

    • Multiple Drive blocks in the signal chain that default to off, making it easier for you to add your own drives
    • A Looper block at the end of the signal chain
    • Tremolo if the amp has that
    • Delay and Reverb blocks
    • Carefully chosen Cab IRs and alternative cab IR options inside each cab block paired with the amp and making it easier for you to audition other IRs
    • Multiple signal routing options with 4 outputs (in firmware v5.x updated version). You can easily run into both a powered FRFR monitor on stage from Output 1 and simultaneously into a Front of House PA using Output 3. Or go into a DAW with Output 1 digitally, and simultaneously into a stage FRFR monitor with Output 3. Output 2 is a direct signal tapped off the amp block (no cab or wet effects) for those using powered amps and real guitar speaker cabs.
    • Plus "Easter egg" effects sprinkled throughout randomly to enhance certain iconic tones.
    • Preset space in existing layout to allow you to add your own effects blocks. Just aim to keep that overall CPU below 80%!
    • In the updated v5.x version, Control Switches are assigned to various amp block functions like Boost, Fat, Bright, and Ideal Saturation.
    These 1000 amp sounds can cover virtually any genre of music, from rock to pop, blues to metal, roots to country, jazz to praise & worship, to indie and experimental.

    If you liked, the 700+ TonePack, you will LOVE this one for the Axe-Fx III! It's a true treasure chest of tones and an essential toolbox for Axe III owners, one that will leave you playing inspired for hours and days by the tones -- instead of spending hours and days dialing them in yourself.

    UPDATED: The $99 price reflects the larger volume of presets included and also anticipates my labor costs for two future TonePack updates for Fractal future firmwares 5.x and a later one X.x customers will get for no additional charge. In future updates, I may include some old and new bonus presets I could not get to in time for this version.

    Guys, this Tonepack is spectacular. The amps are so carefully dialed in and the cabs so well chosen. It took me hours to audition them all. I can't imagine how long it took @austinbuddy to craft them.

    I never bought the 700+ pack but all the great comments about it make getting the 1000+ pack a no brainer.

    I bought the 700 tone pack for Axe II, looks like I’ll be getting the 1000 tone pack for the Axe III.

    Worth. Every. Penny.

    This is a ridiculously comprehensive pack of amp-cab pairings. Dialed in sweetly.

    It wont let me check out with the coupon? It lets me enter it but when I proceed to payment it says:
    "Sorry, it seems the coupon "save20" is not yours - it has now been removed from your order."
    I bought the naked pack in 2017? Help?

    Sent him an email also. We had the email address sorted out when he last updated the naked to the newer firmware, so I am using the one he told me.

    @austinbuddy - save20 coupon code not working. I'm trying to use it from my account on your site that has the prior purchase attached to it, so it's not a 'wrong e-mail' issue. There's a bug.

    Hi Guys - if you bought a 700+ TonePack but the save20 coupon is not working for you, email me yoir name and the exact email address you used and we will get you manually added to the coupon list. We will check against past orders.

    It is working for most people fine. My email is heybuddy @ austinbuddy.com. Sorry for delay in responding.

    You are gonna love this TonePack! The amazing ccroyalsenders/Cooper Carter volunteered to do a video on it too, so hopefully you can see that soon!

    It works fine with 1.12, the 1.13 beta is more FootController stuff, no tone impact. Good question! Trying to stay ahead of the curve here!

    “Months and months” is the correct answer

    Getting the Cabs paired right and taking advantage if the 2048 Factory cabs for 149 different amps/263 different amp channels...takes time and patience...

    I built 2.x and 3.x future firmware updates into the base price. Will probably add even more presets or scenes in those free updates. But the future labor involved to update 1000+ sounds requires I build that in to the price.

    It is so much fun to play!!!

    All sorted out...thanks for the assist. If the Axe II version is any indication, this will be one hell of a ride!
