Axe-Fx II – Cleans & Blues pack

Cleans & Blues

Price: 25 Euros

This pack specializes in clean & blues tones for the Fractal Audio Axe-Fx II, with Quantum firmware 7.02 (older firmware not supported). There’s 99 presets here : 38 cleans, 21 special effects, 11 presets made with Vox and Vox-like amps (clean, edge of breakup, mid gain for lead playing) and 29 presets for blues (mostly modern blues fusion, à la Robben Ford, Carlton, Frank Gambale etc).

These presets will work with a variety of guitars but are optimized for superstrats with a humbucker in bridge and neck and a single coil in the middle. I used an Ibanez RG to tweak them and usually uses position 4 of the pickup selector (middle single coil pickup + splitted bridge humbucker) for clean and crunch toness, and the bridge or neck humbuckers for mid to high gain. These presets are for FRFR systems, not traditional guitar speakers. Updates, if necessary because of changes in the firmware, will be free for one year (until March 2018).

These presets uses 31 user cabs, which I made from free sources and various techniques like tone matching. All those cabs are included and must be installed at the user spots indicated by their names (see video, link below).

Legal stuff : this is a digital download. No refund even in case of buying by mistake. The download link will be emailed to you by e-junkie and I will receive a copy of that mail too. If you don’t get it, please check your spam folder.

These files are in a .rar compressed archive, which is a standard format. PC users can use Winrar, Winzip or 7zip to extract them. Popular tools for MAC users are Stuffit Expander, Unrar x or The Unarchiver. Most computers already have tools for that, and most of these applications are free.

Check this video for the presets and cabs installation procedure :

You need to drag & drop each cab to its correct spot, according to its filename (Cab 001 goes to user spot 001, etc.)

Question, love the presets but I have a question. For your patch “Silver Surfer”, you list it for cab “Y” as being U0040 OH 412 MESA V60 mix and U0041 OH 412 RECTO V60 yet these were not included in your user cabs. Please clarify?

You’re not supposed to use Cab Y in that preset, it’s for my personal use… It’s not a multi-scenes preset. And these are commercial cabs

You receive only the cabs you need for the pack you bought. I made things that way because if you buy only one pack but get all the cabs, you’ll have many cabs which you won’t use with my presets, and they may take places of your own cabs
