The Dillinger Escape Plan, Producer, Engineer

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. Being limited to just one or two tones for a song would be like looking at a Rembrandt in black and white. When you factor in how reliable and recall-able the sounds are, you really can't beat it.

Mors Principium Est, Solo Artist, Producer, Composer

Every sound and effect I could ever need in the studio or live fits into a unit small enough to sit under my monitor, or to be carried onto a flight to my next gig. The Axe-FX is the silver bullet to the tube-amp purist’s argument against digital amps.

I Built the Sky

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 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 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!

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.

I’ve been a fan of the Axe FX for a while now, but the III takes it to a new level. Now, I feel there is zero compromise between this and a tube amp. Having used modelers alongside tube guitar amps for over 20 years, I can say without doubt, that the Axe FX III is the ultimate guitar rig solution!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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!

The Axe-FX has been a total game-changer for me. Hard for me to admit to, after all the money I've spent collecting vintage amps! I've redone my entire live rig around it and it's now less than 1/2 the size it used to be. It's become an essential part of my studio rig as well. It's the first modeling technology I've heard that actually works for me.

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!

It's just that simple, when it comes to recording for my CDs, laying tracks for the TV shows I am scoring, or making electric guitar (or acoustic guitar with a pickup) sound design for my various projects the Axe-Fx is my first call device. It is by far the best piece of guitar gear I have ever owned.

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 the Axe-Fx since the very beginning. Even back then the world of possibilities that it opened up was unbeatable. What’s possible now makes the Axe-Fx and AX8 perfect for creating even the wildest sounds. I play both electric and acoustic guitar and couldn’t be happier. It’s just perfect. And this perfection means I can finally concentrate completely on my music.

The Axe-Fx... It's GREAT. I love it! Technology has gotten to the point where you can achieve the sound once required loads of other gear. I wish I'd had it many years ago.

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.

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.

I've fallen in love with the Axe-Fx. The tonal power is amazing - so many different amps and effects, and everything is updatable. I can program all of my signal chains just the way I want them, and be able to recall those sounds at any time. I don't have to worry ever again about recreating my studio tones for live performance.

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.
