I Wrestled A Bear Once

Not only is the AXE FX the best tool on Earth for shaping your dream tones and fx, but you get to bring them with you everywhere you go in only 2 rack spaces! I ditched giant flight cases and a huge pedal board in favor of one easy-to-carry rack and an MFC-101, and I couldn't be happier.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 used the Ultra on "Sounds of Freedom" to create the best guitar sounds I have ever recorded (after 14 solo albums!) The Axe-Fx is even more fantastic... with even more body, complexity and presence... even more purity, width and warmth. This is virtuosity in technology.

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!

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!

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.

I’ve never been happy with the transparency and the quality of multi-effect until now! I need a wide variety of tones at my disposal with no tap-dancing. Using a pick or my fingers on passive or active basses, with or without frets, or even Chapman Stick, it sounds great and delivers a consistently clean signal.

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 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.

Touring Guitarist, The Killers

The Axe-FX is a major breakthrough in amp modeling. As a person who loves the sound of tube amps and individual guitar amps, I didn’t know at first whether it would be a good fit, but I quickly found that the tones and effects sound amazing and that I could dial in the specific sounds I need. I don’t completely understand how this all fits into a single unit but I’m glad it does!

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.
