I add guitar to my scores a lot. The quick access to my favorite presets when I get an idea and want to jump right in is exactly what I need. And, the Axe-Fx II sounds great!!

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.

The new Axe-FX II has all the functionality and tonal quality of the Axe-FX I,  and then some. The introduction of the Axe-FX 1 unit into the pantheons of guitar FX processors was akin to the invention of the wheel. The Axe-FX two is like having 4 wheels and racing into the abyss.

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 II is the silver bullet to the tube-amp purist’s argument against digital amps.

The Axe-Fx II 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!

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 II 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.

The Axe Fx II 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!

The Ultra was a game changer for us both live and in the studio. The Axefx II takes the unit to an unprecedented level of realism and control. This is beyond modeling or effects processing, this is the new standard for guitarists.

I freakin' love this thing! I haven't used an amp in the studio for months, and now I've built a live rig around it too. The tone is second to none!

I got my Axe-Fx Ultra back in 2008 and haven't looked back since. The Axe-Fx II now forms the integral part of our live rig, and allows us to have our tones wherever we are in the world. The level of reliability, tone and practicality is unrivalled by anything else.

The Axe-FX II is absolutely the most useful and flexible tone tool you could ever have. It is custom made for everyone.

What can I say? I am blown away by the Axe Fx. It does everything and more. What really amazes me is that the amps do not sound 'digital' at all.

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.

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.

After playing through the Axe-Fx II 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.

We struggled with tube amp inconsistency for years, especially with in-ears. The Axe-Fx eliminates this problem completely for us…it sounds consistently great every time and you cannot beat the support from the Fractal team!

The tone of the Axe-Fx II 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.

Man!!! The Axe-Fx II with v10 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.
