It contains a vast virtual inventory of hundreds of vintage and modern guitar amps, speaker cabinets, guitar stompbox and studio effects, and more. It accurately recreates the sound and feel of tube amps and can tone match the sound of your live amp or a recording. It is ideal for both stage and studio use, with heavy-duty construction and a high-quality, low-noise design. The Axe-Fx II has superb sound with great power and flexibility, offering many improvements over traditional guitar amps and effects, including extremely light weight, precise sound control, computer integration, very simple rig design possibilities, and more.
Despite its advanced technology, it is remarkably easy to use. The Axe-Fx II XL+ can be completely controlled from the front panel via knobs, buttons, and a large backlit LCD display. The large VALUE knob is used for most setting changes, while four smaller QUICK CONTROL knobs give you hands-on access to extra parameters including SCENES.Scenes allow each of the 768 presets to contain 8 different combinations of effects on/off, amp XY channel selection, and more. The Power for Extreme Amp Modeling. The equation is quite simple: more power equals the capability for better sound, with greater depth, detail, and dimensionality. The Axe-Fx II is a great improvement on previous products, with two state-of-the-art Analog Devices TigerSHARC DSPs offering many times the raw power of competitor products. One is dedicated solely to amp modeling while the other handles effects and other processing.
We put this power to good use, individually modeling both preamp and power amp sections. Preamps are painstakingly modeled, typically with all the same controls as the original amps. We also model the entire power section including tubes, transformers, choke, filter caps and more.
The results are amazing: big, yet tight bass, powerful mids, silky highs, and all of the feel that makes playing a great amp so enjoyable. There are 180+ different amp models onboard. They range from industry standards to boutique treasures, from the very best of vintage, to the leading edge of modern tones.
The Axe-Fx II features a high resolution speaker simulator with 150+ Factory models and room for 512 User cabs. The Cab Block is the key to direct tone able to reproduce the sound of a cranked, properly micd amp at any volume without the variables that normally plague such setups in a live or studio setting inconsistent sound, mic leakage, insane volume requirements, etc.Factory cabs include selections from our own collection of professionally produced Cab-Packs, plus selections by todays top artists, engineers, and 3rd party IR designers like RedWirez and OwnHammer. Youll find a superb variety of cab and speaker sizes representing the greatest brands from history and the present day. You can even create your own User Cabs, with built-in tools to capture the sound of any speaker. In addition, we offer Cab-Lab, an IR mixer and tools application for Mac and Windows, designed specifically for those who want to create their own custom IR blends (like a producer or engineer might do with different mics on the same speaker).
Tone Matching extends this with the impressive ability to clone another device such as an amp, rig or recording. You can save the result in a single preset, or export it to a User Cab for use throughout your Axe-Fx II. In addition to industry leading amp modeling, the Axe-Fx II is an incredibly powerful and flexible multi-effects processor, with ultra-realistic recreations of classic stomp boxes and rack processor effects. Effect models can be dialed in with a single knob to make all required settings for great sound in seconds, or tweaked at the deepest level with a completely modular approach. Like our amps, effects sound and feel great, with very musical response to enhance and inspire.29+ Drive Pedal modelsDozens of Delays19 Reverb typesTotally customizable WahHighly customizable WhammyFixed and Intelligent HarmonyShimmer, Crystals, etc. Phaser & Uni-VibeFlanger, ChorusPanner/TremoloRotary SpeakerTone Match7 powerful Filter typesGraphic & Parametric EQsMany Compressor types including pedal, studio, and opticalLimiter/GateFront-end Noise GateMono Guitar SynthBuilt in LooperNew true Tape EchoVocoderAnd more.
