Magic Elf, Carl Roa Band

The Axe-FX II is magic in a box! An incredible array of tones from the small 2 rack space unit. Just about every amp known to man, with a seemingly endless choice of mics, cabs and effects. This amazing technology easily competes with the sonic arsenals found at most top end studios. Simply awesome!

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.

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.

(...and I'm a very picky motherf**k'r) It's an impressive piece that lets me reproduce old favorite sounds but more importantly, inspires new ideas.

The Axe-Fx is just an amazing tool in your arsenal and it's getting more and more amazing all the time. It's fantastic. I can basically get the sound of my studio now -- both with the impulse response capture and the tone match feature -- ...and take it with me!

The AX8 is everything and more for my electric guitar setup. I honestly can’t see any reason for players not to use this on stage and in the studio. It is superbly practical with a minimal learning curve and the amp models are just unbelievable, not to mention the ridiculous amount of high quality effects that you can tweak for days. I’ve barely scratched the surface with this thing but I can’t wait to dive deeper.

Since switching to Fractal Audio Axe-Fx II, 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 reprogrammed the whole NIN show using the Fractal. I have never sounded better and I’m psyched with each preset for every song. Really love the thing!

I’ve been chasing my version of “The Tone" for years… I’m happy to say I finally found it. From rock to country, live and in the studio this thing delivers on every level. Thank you Fractal!

The Ultra completely and forever changed the way I look at guitar processing. The Axe-Fx II takes everything I love about the Ultra to the next level. All of the FX sound richer and the new interface makes it even easier to use. My rig has a new openness and clarity and sounds so much better as a result.

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 and MFC-101 have been the cornerstone of my recording and live-playing rig since 2008. I was hooked in about 15 minutes and I haven't looked back since. I have become a much more creative player and well-rounded artist because of this amazing device.

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!

Keith Urban's masterful guitar playing and magnetic energy are accompanied by a true dedication to great tone. It's an honor that he is preparing to use our amp modeling in his live rig, and that he chose to be listed here. We previously worked with Keith's personal Twin to produce a cab pack and an amp model now featured in the Axe-Fx II and AX8.

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.

The Axe FX II 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!
