Dear Fractalites,

On Feb 22nd I started the “Fractal Audio AMP models” thread series.

And... it's complete. All 249 current models have been described and discussed into detail, which translates to just under 100 actual amps plus a number of virtual ones. Click here to see all threads.
EDIT: with the help of forum member @simviz the contents of all threads have been bundled in a PDF guide.​

And yes, I totally underestimated the work involved. ;-)
Most of the time I could keep up with the planned “one-thread-a-day” rhythm, but TBH, towards the end I got fed up with it. But hey, the job had to be finished of course.

I cleaned up the corresponding amp list in the wiki and made sure the information in the wiki and the threads is consistent.

I made presets for most of the models. Click here to download. They were created on my Axe-Fx II XL. Use FracTool to convert them to other devices.

- DONATE -

I have a great job (not related to music) and I’m doing fine. I’ve never asked for a donation for wiki maintenance etc.

But there are other people on this earth who are in need. My girlfriend Mariette visited Nepal in 2016 to do voluntary work, among others in a children’s home. Where young children stay, who otherwise would have to live on the streets and risk becoming victims of human trafficking, which is a big issue in Nepal, sadly. While she was away, I started writing the threads.

If you found the series of threads entertaining, perhaps learned something from it, enjoyed the read or just want to show appreciation, please consider donating in return. Any amount you feel is right. It will be used to keep helping these children, through a bona fide organization.

Dear Yek, Thanks for the great work and all the effort you are putting into this... its a God send... just a small correction regarding the JS410 Satriani Amp... the related cabinet is a Marshall 1960A with G12 T75 speakers... i know this because i own the real amp and cab.

Thanks, will correct!

So it's a different cab as the standard 410 cab?
 
Only suggestion I have is I think the cover page should say "Last updated [date]" on it. If not the cover page then somewhere else.

I go for Silver (which is why I never became an Olympic athlete).” – yek

Would be super cool to link this with axe edit somehow. Probably more trouble than its worth but what do I know. Anywho, looks great Yek. Even the small things like referencing which knobs to turn on the amp model...etc. Great help
