Factory presets

Installing new versions of factory presets

Fractal Audio periodically updates the factory presets for current processors.

Use Fractal-Bot to upload factory preset banks to the hardware. To select and upload individual presets from a bank, use the software editor.

Auditioning factory presets

Just like real amps, the processors are sensitive to the type of guitar and its pickups.

Preset output levels can vary from preset to preset. If a factory preset makes the Out 1 Clip LED blink, the overall signal level in the digital domain is too hot. To solve this, turn down Level in the Amp block or Main in the Global EQ.

If possible, play factory presets in stereo to hear the presets at their best.

If you're running mono and audio output in the I/O menu is set to “Sum L+R”, phase cancellation may occur. This can happen if the preset contains an Enhancer block in Classic Mode, or a micro delay in the Cab block. Or when a preset contains a Delay block with the Phase Rev parameter engaged.

When using output mode "Copy L>R" in the I/O menu, you'll lose the part of the signal that's hardwired to the right channel. That might be a Ping Pong delay, or a stereo Cab block with both sides hard-panned.

"The presets were dialed in loud so as to be sure the Fletcher-Munson effect did not influence the sound." source
"I use and prefer low output pickups and the presets work fine for me. I just consider them a starting point as everyone should." source

Axe-Fx III

Iii-front-transparent-1024x271.png

The Axe-Fx III has 384 factory presets, divided over 3 banks (A B C). Many of these were ported from the Axe-Fx II and optimized for the III, adding scenes and new features. The factory presets use Input 1 (instrument) and Output 1 with Cab Modeling.

Camilo Velandia demonstrates the first factory presets (March 2018): part 1part 2part 3part 4

FX8

FX8-mk2-top.jpg

Cooper Carter compiled a list of all FX8 factory presets, including the amps (traditional and amp models) that were used when creating them. Download the list (version: August 2015)

If you place the FX8 in front of your amp, you won't experience the factory presets as they are intended. Some of these are configured for POST only (FX8 in the effects loop of an amp) or 4CM. An easy way to overcome this, is connecting a patch cable between OUT [PRE] L MONO and IN [POST] L, and connecting OUT [POST] L to the amp.

Some factory presets are configured for stereo output and won't sound like they should in a mono setup.

FM3

FM3-front.png

The factory presets use Input 1 (instrument) and Output 1 with Cab Modeling, and are configured for stereo output.

Many presets were imported from the Axe-Fx III. Some are FM3 originals.

(M@) "Axe-Fx III owners may notice the suffix "FM3" or slight variations in the names of some of the FM3 presets. This was done to indicate that the preset has changed. In some cases, the Axe-Fx presets were larger and wouldn't fit. In other cases, we took advantage of capabilities that were new or improved since those presets were originally created (some in the time of the Ultra!). In other cases, "bonus scenes" or features were added. We also replaced some near-duplicate presets with new creations. To the extent possible, I added at least three scenes to many of the presets so you would have something to explore." source

Frank Steffen Mueller demonstrates some of the factory presets
