It's HERE! You can now purchase the 1400+ Naked Amps TonePack for your Axe-Fx III!

* For July 2020, this product is on SALE for $79. Sale Ends August 1!*

This product is a new design that takes great advantage of the Axe-Fx III's firmware, new Amp and Block channels, and new Cab block. All tones are updated to work with the latest PUBLIC (not beta) firmware 12.11.

Nearly all presets use Factory/Legacy Cabs chosen from the 2048+ 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 (277 as of July 2020) 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 170+ amp-specific presets. Most amp presets have 8 scenes. There are also 30+ mostly new bonus presets I threw in for fun, including the "JimiLondon" presets from the 700+ TonePack, and now including (firmware version 11) also a sampler from the Brit Rock Royalty TonePack #1 and the not yet released, coming in 2020)200+ Bass TonePack for Axe-Fx III.

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 Audio rep and guitar virtuoso Cooper Carter playing EVERY amp model in two YouTube videos, using the Axe-Fx III's 1400+ Naked Amps TonePack base presets for each riff or song clip! (Cooper adds his own effects in a few cases). And thanks to AgileJazz on YouTube, in the YouTube comments you can now what Naked Amp preset was used by Cooper for each song.



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. 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 2, and In-Ears with Output4. Output 3 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%!
  • Control Switches are assigned to various amp block functions like Boost, Fat, Bright, and Ideal Saturation.
  • New for updated version for ARES firmware 12.2 are customized FC12 and FC6 layouts.
These 1800+ 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. 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.

For the price of less than a single guitar pedal, you can unlock the sounds of over 1760 amp channels leveled and ready for hours of playing enjoyment. You can buy this Tonepack on my website here. Check out this thread for user feedback and tips.

I couldn’t be happier to update this thread to include @austinbuddy ’s latest incredible collection for the Axe Fx III....the wait is over!!!!!!!!!!!!! And it is spectacular.
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.
......spectacular.....

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?

“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!!!
