Yes, ARW, Solo Artist
The Axe-Fx is just ridiculous. The modeling is just great, and it was really the only product of its kind that I could bond with. On tour, it’s been trouble-free and has replaced my entire rig: big stereo amps, pedals, effects, a switching rig. It’s just great…really great!
The Axe-Fx performs beautifully! Many of the guitarists I produce are amp-tone purists. They can be reluctant to try a unit like this but in no time at all they love working with it! I always get in there and work with microphone, amplifier and pedal combinations, and the Axe-Fx puts it all at your fingertips. The tones are easy to fit into the mix and the FX processing opens doors for artist creativity. I love it!
The Axe-Fx achieves a level of creative transparency and depth that I haven’t found in any other piece of hardware. It truly allows me to craft the sound I hear in my head for the first time, and as a producer and artist, this is invaluable. Fractal is the cutting edge, and their drive and passion is evident in everything they do.

The Axe-FX eliminates the barriers that stand between what I imagine and what is possible. It is an amazing tool on the road and in the studio.

Versatility, quality and tone! These three words come to mind when I describe the Axe FX. I use it for all my live gigs and studio work, with the feeling of playing through a real tube amp with super high quallity effects. Fractal Audio has changed the way I approach my guitar tone, and I feel more inspired than ever. Thank you guys!
Juggling vocals and bass means I need to be able to get a great tone with minimum fuss. The Axe-Fx III frees me up to focus on performing while delivering both clarity and crunch.
Between the Buried and Me
For years we accumulated a multitude of amps and Fx with hopes of achieving the perfect tone. The end result was just a muddy, convoluted mess. Now, in one rack unit, the Axe-FX delivers the highest quality tones and effects while maintaining the authentic 'feel' of a tube amp and is quickly becoming the standard for even the most dogmatic of tone junkies.
Guns N' Roses, SixxAM
The Axe-Fx is hands-down the most amazing guitar rig I have ever had the opportunity to plug into. In the studio or playing live it delivers nothing but quality tones and effects for days. I am simply blown away by this unit. It is every monster guitar rig all-in-one thanks guys!

Fractal Audio are ahead of the game in the world of amp and FX modeling, with sound and feel like the real deal in a way that was unfathomable not long ago. This is the future. I feel like a kid in a candy store.
Having access to so many amazing amps and cabs that sound, feel and behave like the real deal has blown my mind. I've been on a tone quest this last year, and the first time I plugged into the Axe-Fx I knew I had found exactly what I was searching for. The complementing effects are also world class, which means I can keep my rig small and portable, without compromises.
The Axe-Fx provides consistently great tone, no matter where or when our ritual takes place.

This amazing piece of engineering is a blank canvas, allowing me to replace 3 separate amp systems that took two men to move. It is carry-on baggage for overseas and coast-to-coast commutes to work, yet sounds like every guitarist's, studio engineer's and FOH mixer's wet dream!

The Axe-Fx has totally changed the way I work and my perception of great tone! The ability to have so many incredible tones and effects at your fingertips for both live and studio work seems too good to be true, but with the Axe-Fx you really can have it all.
The Axe-Fx is unreal... amazing, unique, and most importantly, totally usable tone in every situation.
I've always loved the concept of having your entire rig in one unit and with the Axe-FX I can have that without compromising in tone or versatility. The kind of music I play requires a lot of completely different sounds and approaches, the Axe-FX pulls this off with great ease!

When I first plugged into the AX8, I was truly astonished how good the tone was. I knew instantaneously it was a game changer. After a couple hours, I was planning to sell my amps and pedals… The Northern Pikes just completed a 29 date tour, including a performance where my AX8 operated outdoors for 5 hours in -32 weather. The unit worked flawlessly. It’s an outstanding machine.

I’ve been using Fractal Audio gear since the Axe-fx Ultra came on the market, and I didn’t think anything could surpass that. Here we are with the Axe-fx III, and it’s in a completely different world of modeling. Every time I plug into it, I’m completely blown away and it makes me want to sit and play for hours. Fractal Audio is the real deal, and I can’t thank them enough for making the most complete all-in-one unit for both the studio and live use!

The Axe FX is the perfect device for any multi-output instrument such as the Chapman Stick, Warr Guitar, 14-string guitar, regular guitars with piezo, doubleneck 6/12 string, etc. I'm basically using different effects for each one of the 4 outputs of my guitar, having the greatest sound quality. Amazing, and ready to go!

The AxeFx achieves literally every tone I want for our music, and then some. From all the tones on the new record, to everything we use live - it's all AxeFX. I've never played through such a diverse, dynamic, yet straightforward unit. It re-shaped the way I think about guitar tone and I honestly can't see myself ever going back.

The Axe-Fx does everything well, but most importantly it articulates the science of great tone with an organic sensibility and utter precision!
Thanks to Fractal, I get the amazingly surreal experience of being able to carry hundreds of high-end amps, cabs and pedals, all in a small suitcase, around the world, to play music I wrote in my bedroom with people I met on the Internet. If that's not a sign of living in the future, I don't know what is.

The Axe-Fx is by far the best invention in the guitar world of this century. Not only has it allowed me to reduce my live rig to the minimum (no more huge racks) but also offered me the possibility to get the best sounds in every situation. I can get the same exact sound of the studio in live situations. I’m sorry for amp & FX manufacturers but this is ALL I’ve ever dreamt!

Since switching to Fractal Audio Axe-Fx, I love the ease of achieving any tones I need with lightweight compatibility on the road or in the studio. I get my electronic dance/rock-style sounds that I would need racks-upon-racks to achieve otherwise with a set up time of seven minutes or less.

I’ve barely scratched the surface with this thing but I can’t wait to dive deeper.

And this perfection means I can finally concentrate completely on my music.

The Axe FX III has been an absolute game changer for me. Between the overall sound and the amount of fine tuning you can do it has allowed me to replicate the sounds exactly like the album as well as add live elements to the artists performance. The amps sound exactly like the amps I have used my whole life in the studio and on the road and the editor makes setting up presets and performances a breeze. It is incredibly inspiring both sonically and feel-wise.

My Axe-Fx gives me everything I need to deliver the perfect performance. Different presets give me the ability to fine tune EQs, amp modelers, synths, effects, and more, and I’m able to switch scenes in an instant. From small stages to stadiums, it helps me put on the best show possible.
