Fractal Audio Systems
Fractal Audio supports and encourages companies who create third party commercial content related to our products. We’ve created a Vendor Program with rules that aim to balance vendor self-promotion and forum decorum.
Only Approved Vendors may post commercial/promotional content outside of the general For Sale sub-forum.

[Updated July 20, 2021] - Commercial Vendor threads may ONLY be posted to a special Vendors subform:

[Updated June 24, 2022] - We are no longer granting vendor status to new members, or those who join our forum solely to post commercial content. We allow vendor promotions here as a service to our community members, not to those who want merely to harvest them as customers.

Rules for Vendors
  1. To post commercial content or participate as a commercial business on this forum, you must first be approved as a vendor by Fractal Audio Systems. To apply for membership, please email

  2. You must re-apply if your business activities change. Examples of change include new retail categories, hardware vs. software offerings, cab packs vs. plugins, Fractal Audio exclusive vs non-exclusive, etc.

  3. Vendors must abide by the following rules:
    • Vendor Banner - Approved vendors will be assigned the “Vendor” banner, visible below their avatar on all posts made on the forum. A vendor banner lets our members and moderators know you are a vendor.
    • Signature, Avatar, Profile
      1. We require placing a disclosure and suggest a link and contact information in your signature.
      2. Signatures may not contain any images or media.
      3. Avatar images may be logos, products, or musician lifestyle images but may not include offers or specific advertisements. (Click your username on the top right area of the screen and you will see links to update your avatar, signature, and profile.)
    • Content Limits - You may create and maintain one promotional thread per major product or product category in the Vendor forum.
      • You may post Videos/Pictures that feature your products.
      • You may announce products and in-person events.
    • Links - Vendors may post links to posts in their thread when it is relevant in another forum. For example:
      Q: "Where can I find a Mothra Huguenot effect block?"
      A: Our Acme Presets and Effects Pack has one. http://link/post#1245
      Q: Who makes the best IRs for my product?
      A: I hope you'll check out my commercial offerings. Learn more here: http://link/post#1245
    • Some Things Not To Do
      • Do not compare products to the competition
      • Do not "bump" a "sleeping" thread more than once per week unless you are answering a direct question.
      • Do not post in other sponsors' threads (unless you have something nice to say).
      • Do not do anything to make your post stand out unnecessarily. No pricing. DON'T TYPE IN ALL CAPS.
    • Issues/questions
      • Please do not hesitate to contact us at
      • If you see inappropriate content, the fastest way to bring to our attention is to click the "report post" button. The moderators get an email of the report immediately.
