Artists Using the Axe-Fx and Other Products from Fractal Audio

Artists using Fractal Audio can be found across genres, generations, and geographies. From jazz to junk, pop to punk, folk to funk, metal to monk… from secret studios to stadium stages, our diverse endorsers have at least one thing in common: they tell us that the sound of Fractal Audio helps them make great music.

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.

Megadeth

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.

Trivium

I've always believed that the least amount of gear between a guitarist's fingers the ears of the listener. That's been difficult to say the least... up until the Axe-Fx. My rig today is guitar, power conditioner, wireless, Fractal. That's it -- and my tone sounds better than ever. Minimal. Modern.

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!

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 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.

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.

The Axe-Fx makes everything I want to do with electric guitar easier and sound better than it ever has. I can’t imagine going back to a traditional tube rig at this point: we're just too far past that now.

As a recording artist, performer, producer, and teacher traveling the world continuously, I've always longed for the seemingly impossible - a variety of quality sounds with endless possibilities that can be saved and recalled flawlessly, and all that you can carry with one hand. Fractal made it possible. THANK YOU for allowing me to give audiences a better listening experience than I ever could before.

The Axe Fx is truly a wet dream for a guitarist. I can finally create what I have always wanted. Making the Axe Fx Tips & Tricks videos on Youtube has made me realize what a beast the Axe Fx is. I can’t see myself going back to gear like the ones that I had before. Now I can concentrate on playing instead of searching for gear.

Between the Buried and Me

For years we accumulated a multitude of amps and Fx with hopes of achieving the perfect tone. The end result was just a muddy, convoluted mess. Now, in one rack unit, the Axe-FX delivers the highest quality tones and effects while maintaining the authentic 'feel' of a tube amp and is quickly becoming the standard for even the most dogmatic of tone junkies.

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 is the pinnacle of tonal technology. In its many forms it has been the centerpiece of my rig, both live and in the studio for a number of years and I expect it to remain so for years to come. Nothing comes close.

My Axe-Fx has not only replaced all my rack gear and channel switching amps, but for the first time I have a consistent tone night after night regardless of venue.

Fighting Friday, Studio Musician

A very well respected sound engineer gave me the look of death when I showed up with just my Axe-Fx. At the end of the night he came up and said “That thing sounded so good it made me angry”. No limitations, no compromises. The future is now I am honored to be part of it.

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!

Solo Artist, Axis, Two Roads East

When I'm recording for EFX or projects 2 ROADS EAST and AXIS, I'm always looking for organic sounds—greasy, soulful rhythm-and-blues gut-bucket real-vibe. I want to hear the air around the notes. Fractal Audio delivers exactly that and then some. The amp models are reactive and alive. The reverbs lush, deep and complex. It's essential for killer guitar sounds quickly and easily.

The Axe-Fx doesn't only sound like my favourite amps, it "feels" like them too. All the pros of the real thing without any of the cons. In fact, what am I talking about? It IS the real thing.
