In the past we have regularly done portraits of fractal users who have caught our eye. This time we'd like to tell you about a certain YEK, a European with a distinctly Dutch accent.Yek is a seemingly unending source of knowledge on the Fractal Audio Forum. But who is he really? We found out.

(Vintage-Article from 2007): When the Axe-Fx first became available in 2007, a lot of patience was required due to the large number of orders and long waiting times of several months. You can read all about it in the following light-hearted article from the pioneering era of the Axe-Fx ?.

Fractal Audio has matched and even beaten the old school effects, tubes, speakers and microphones approach with digital technology. Not only have they created a device which captures the nuance, mojo and fidelity of the real thing, but it's like having hundreds of real things, stock and custom, in two rack spaces. It is soulful, rich and alive. To me the Axe-Fx II is the new real thing.
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 quality of all the effects is superb. There is great depth and transparency, and excellent imaging that makes listening with in-ear monitoring a wonderful aural experience.The choices are limitless and it's fully loaded with all the options you'd ever need. Take it for a test drive, you won't be disappointed.
Live or in the studio, the Axe-Fx II is the most potent artistic tool a guitarist can own. I've never captured such beautiful, full guitar sounds so easily, whether I'm dialing in a famous tone for an episode of SoloAWeek or my own dream tone I've always heard in my head. The Axe-Fx II inspires me to create every day.
I've tried every modelling unit available on this planet and the Fractal is by far miles ahead in every area. It's also proven to be flawlessly dependable in the studio and live performances. So no matter who tries to get what out of me.... you're not getting my Fractal... ;)
