Each one of my projects uses a unique set of tones. The Axe FX gives me a ton of options that sound amazing and the interface is so easy to use…I could’t have a better tool for developing my own sound.
The Eagles, Solo Artist
The Fractal system is like having over 100 guitar setups in one...Different amps, speakers, and effects in every combination you could imagine. It is so helpful in the studio to recreate or redo a guitar part... No setting up, no microphones or tweaking to match sounds. It’s just right there where you left it. I’m loving this unit and having a blast exploring all of it’s possibilities.

The Axe-Fx is indispensable both in the studio and for touring. With it's endless creative possibilities, diverse tones, and realistic feel the Axe-Fx is everything I need.
Fighting Friday, Studio Musician
A very well respected sound engineer gave me the look of death when I showed up with just my Axe-Fx. At the end of the night he came up and said “That thing sounded so good it made me angry”. No limitations, no compromises. The future is now I am honored to be part of it.
The Axe Fx is the perfect solution for that guitar tone I've always had in my head. It has revolutionized my recording and production. Don't know what I would do without it!
Zac Brown Band
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.
Santiago Torres Lynett
Fractal Audio makes touring easy. From bars to big arenas, my tone is consistently great! I use it as my only unit on stage, running both amp modeling and effects.
Having all of the amps, cabs and effects in the Axe-FX III is mind-blowing! The quality and accuracy is second to none. Whether I'm performing live or recording my tone always gets compliments.
The Axe-Fx is the most powerful unit out there with the least limitations. I talked to a lot of people and tried other products. The Axe-Fx was the best sound processor I found and it was a very easy decision to go with the Fractal.
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.
My Axe-Fx is a guitar player's dream. I have access to limitless, amazing tones and effects with superb quality. Live setup is a breeze too... no more over-sized pedal boards! My rig survived 2012 Warped Tour last summer without any glitches whatsoever, and still going strong. Fractal Rocks!!!

The Axe-Fx is the best piece of equipment I've ever had. I’ve always dreamed of having a guitar device that had all the sounds possibilities and features I wanted. With the Axe-Fx, my dream came true. Thanks for making my life on stage and at studio easier!

One my best purchases ever. With my Axe-Fx I can now tour the world with my ultimate tone rig – and it's a carry-on!
Every Hour Kills
The Axe-Fx finally fulfilled the promise of the multi-Fx amp modeler. Live or in the studio, every tone you can imagine in stunning quality, without sacrificing usability. I replaced entire fridge racks and pedalboards and haven't mic'd up a cab in months. Fractal brings my audio chaos to life.
The Axe-Fx gives us a consistent and reliable tone every night. I can’t imagine touring without it. We also use it in the studio and I even use one at home to practice and play along with records.
In a constantly evolving game of music and music technology, I’m glad Fractal Audio stays ahead of the curve and sets the bar high! The Axe-Fx is everything!

The Fractal is an absolute dream machine. They've stuffed every effect, head, cabinet, and more into a 2-space rack, and now floor unit! I've been using Fractal products for every gig, lesson, rehearsal, and recording session since 2009 and I couldn't be happier with the results.

We recently purchased Axe-Fx units and as you know, it is a transcendental experience... especially for those who love developing tones with movement and textures to use for composition as we do. We feel as though we found a life partner in this system!
My world is equal parts touring, songwriting, and production. If you asked me to choose one piece of gear that is indispensable, it would be my Fractal, hands down. It’s consistency live, seamless workflow in the studio, endless creativity, and always being able to say “yes, the Fractal can do that,” makes it the most game changing piece of equipment I own. The Axe-Fx III has taken me to a whole different level of flexibility. The possibilities are seemingly infinite and it grows with me as I learn. This vintage sound girl is a believer.
A "must own" for any guitar player! Whether you're a pro or just jamming for fun, this beast does it all! It's all over our new record. Live I use amp, cabs and effects in the box, straight to FOH and wedges. It just sounds GREAT.
Kingdom of Sorrow, Jasta, Kings and Liars
Ok, I've got a major complaint with you Fractal people....WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH ALL THIS GEAR NOW?!!?!? I've got a pile of distortion pedals, fuzz boxes, delays, amps and cabs just collecting dust! Where do you get off making SUCH an awesome product? Takes a lot of nerve to make the best piece of gear I ever owned.
Blondie, Blue Man Group. Rock of Ages
Fractal Audio is the real deal...Real tone, real portable, real easy. The possibilities of this unit would require an endless amount of amps, pedals and rack gear to achieve.
The Axe Fx is one of the most essential guitar-related tools I've ever experienced. Both in, and out of the studio, the Axe Fx consistently surprises and inspires me. The benchmark for digital guitar processing. Period.
After playing through the Axe-Fx for a while I went back to my rig to compare, and it just felt like it was fighting me. You guys have really closed the gap here on both the amps and the effects. This is just incredible technology.
The Axe-Fx is everything I’ve been looking for and more. It is a completely limitless unit that has the ability to make what you hear in your head into a reality. The Axe-Fx is the now and the future!

Fractal Audio has been an absolute game changer to the industry, especially for independent artists such as myself. While versatility and portability alone are enough, the tonal authenticity is second to none. The ability to take my incredible studio tones with me on the road and knowing that I never have to worry about inconsistencies with mics, rooms, cabs and engineers makes playing live nothing but a pleasurable experience.

The tone of the Axe-Fx is simply amazing, and that is coming from a self-admitted amp junkie. This thing delivers amps, cabs, effects, and total control. I am seriously impressed, and hooked.
The Axe-Fx is unreal... amazing, unique, and most importantly, totally usable tone in every situation.
Pray for Sound
The Axe-Fx completely changed how I feel about digital guitar processors. Having hundreds of amps and routing options that actually sound and feel real in such a small package is a game changer for both live and studio settings. With the Axe-Fx, there's no digital harshness. All the tube character is there. I can finally focus my time on creating music, rather than building the ultimate do-all rig.

I've been using my AX8 endlessly on live gigs, tours and sessions. The sound, the tone and the feel is so mindblowing and unreal! So inspiring! Thanks Fractal!
As a session guitarist, I believe that having the right tone is just as important as playing the right note.
FAS processors give me instant access to any rig I could ever imagine, right at my fingertips, on stage and in studio, with no compromise.
For years, I toured with a big rack filled with pedals, processors and tube amps. It was always a challenge. All those nightmares disappeared when I discovered Fractal Audio. The Axe-Fx changed my life, making shows more enjoyable. I love the consistency from show to show, the ability to program all my changes, and the constant upgrades. In fact, the Axe-Fx sounds even better than the old rig!

I've been on a 45-year quest for the perfect electric guitar sounds and had almost given up hope when I recently was turned onto the Axe-Fx. Now I've been able to dial in sounds that I couldn't even conjure up in my dreams. You've proven to me that there must be a God!

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 had many dreams of a mad scientist inputting vintage amp blueprints into computer chips, and giving me the ability to somehow mod the circuits without a soldering gun. I'm alive and it's here. How the $#&% did they do it? We've just turned the corner big time.
Scale The Summit
The Axe-Fx allows you to bring any sound out there in any genre to your studio or live environment. Anyone who tells me they can't get a good sound out of the Axe-Fx just simply hasn't tried.
The Axe-Fx is nothing short of a miracle in a rack unit. The endless precision that the unit offers when shaping your tone opens the door to limitless pathways to achieve any sound that your mind can conceive. There's a reason why Fractal Audio leads their industry by a wide margin...Once you plug into an Axe-FX for yourself, you'll immediately understand why.

For live or studio use the Axe-Fx is the best tool ever! This is really the ultimate 21st-century unit for the guitarist. A year ago I couldn't see myself playing without a tube amp, now I just can't see myself without my Axe-Fx.
I nevered expected that an all-in-one digital unit could replace my real amp rig, but the Fractal Audio Axe-Fx did. It's a dream come true!
Axe-Fx is the ultimate tool where convenience meets sound and feel. In a compact format, you can literally have any sounds from countless legendary rigs, only limited by your own imagination. Not only being an amazing studio workhorse, but as most modern stages today are powered by in-ear monitoring, the realistic sounds and its responsiveness makes this superior to other rigs.

Fractal Audio Systems Axe-Fx ...Brilliant innovation!
I’ve been using the Axe-Fx since 2012, and I couldn’t imagine using anything else. The sound, the feel and its versatility are unmatchable, and with the Axe-Fx III, Fractal has raised the bar yet again. I can’t believe how easy it is to get great tones out of it, still blows my mind everyday!
I had been strugling on stage with tube amps for ages before my Axe arrived.No headaches anymore! I recorded my most recent album "Seven Sources" with the Axe as my main amp and it's the best sound of my career. Thank you Fractal Audio that you exist!

The Axe-Fx has changed everything for me! The previous amp emulators just never had that percussiveness or the responsiveness like a real tube amp until the Axe-Fx - it lets me get to the creative part quicker... it's like cheating. Plus, successful and attractive women have begun stalking me coyly asking about my "huge" tone.

Fractal Audio has inspired me to take the audience's listening experience to a new level. Whether recreating a specific tone or creating tones that set me apart from fellow artists, the Axe-Fx can do it. Getting an Axe-Fx was the best decision I've ever made.

The Axe-FX is a staple here at Beach Road. There's not a single album I produce that it doesn’t get used on at some point. Fractal Audio gets tone like no one else, period!
We have all heard manufacturers advertise being able to reproduce any tone, but Fractal is the first to actually live up to that statement. From the dynamic response to how the gain clips, it responds to my playing instead of altering it. The all-in-one must have unit.
My Axe-Fx has replaced an entire collection of other gear. Fractal has helped my tech and me to be able to dial up any sound or effect in seconds. Works great on the road and in the studio.
I have been using Fractal for several years now. It is a machine that I immediately found very intuitive thanks also to its Editor. Incredible tone! I love it! I always manage to get the sound I need regardless of the music genre.
Jimmy Eat World
Holy #%^!@ !%!@! the Axe-Fx III sounds amazing!! Seriously. I am THAT guy now telling everyone how insane it is. Yes, the new possibilities to create a sound will melt your brain, but the bottom line is that guitar > amp block > cab block just sounds incredible!
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 power and flexibility of the AxeFX III lets my imagination run wild and create sounds I never thought were possible for guitar. The scene/channel feature makes switching between those sounds effortless, opening up a whole new world of songwriting and performance possibilities. No other piece of gear even begins to come close.
The vast array of endless sonic possibilities make my Fractal Axe-Fx a hot-ticket item in the studio!

I've fallen in love with the Axe-Fx. The tonal power is amazing - so many different amps and effects, and everything is updatable.

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!

I've been backing these units from their inception and have been using them in the studio and live for years. The ability to craft your tone from such a large palette of amps and FX is essential to my playing and producing style.

Man!!! The Axe-Fx is absolutely a huge game changer. I though I would never say this but “NO MORE GUITAR AMPS FOR ME BABY!!!” I'm completely done searching. I can definitely nail all the lead tones and the cleans are to die for.
The Axe-FX has been a game changer for our live shows and studio recording. In the old days we would use amps and use a ton of gear to come up with innovative sounds. Live, we had to use extremely complicated setups to achieve "close but not quite". Now we do everything with the Axe-FX. The time saved and quality have been incredible!

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!

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!
