This site has been developed to document my exploration of this powerful guitar tool. For many years I have been a tube purist using and building vintage circuits for my tone. I still use these tube amps, but everyday I discover another reason the Axe-FX II could be the future of guitar in today's modern gigging and recording situations.
Below you will find recordings of patches I've built into my unit as well as the patch download for you to experiment. Be sure to understand that each patch is built to my guitar's specs and sound, so each will have to be adjusted to better match your personal rig.
*All Recordings done with Axe-FX direct into Garageband® for Mac Unless otherwise noted.
Since I am offering all my patches and IR Captures for free, any donations you might like to give would be greatly appreciated and would go a long way to allow me to continue building the collections of patches you see here. (Not to mention please my wife since she's not too pleased I'm giving it my work away for free! HA
A good monitor setup is a very important aspect to getting the right sounds out of your Axe-Fx II preamp. I was fortunate enough to have a good sounding listening setup before getting the AxeFx which allowed me to jump right into the unit and get great tones right from the start.
It his highly recommended you spend time getting the best possible monitoring setup when editing AxeFx patches or you may be improperly hearing what you are creating.
My Monitor setup was originally created for good vinyl playback. But the warm analog audio aproach lends itself well to the guitar tone creation.
