  1. forget the rest, this is best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jul 2014

    After a few seconds of hesitation, we selected a few recognisable sounds, amps and cabinets, got the input and output levels and WOW!
    I love products where they think of features you never knew you needed, all wrapped in an intuitive classy 2u rack mount jewell.

    I think there could be a video in 3 parts, initial setup, finding and creating what you want, finally using the more unique and unusual aspects along with info on extra purchases such as downloadable cabinets etc.

    It must be not easy for Fractal Audio to make each sound work with the multitude of guitars and desks, headphones etc, the sound to me worked very well with a Gibson Les Paul, and after a touch of fine tuning my Fender Strat leaped into life, and after recording, I was amazed by the purity of signal, clarity of sound along with richness of tone.
    I would like more choice of pedals, but that's just me I suppose, this unit does not have fizz when set correctly, you need to take your time and learn at your own pace.

    The a Fractal Audio will not date easily, great for live or studio use. I believe you need a good signal and sound first, and not use the endless tools inside the recording applications to fix. This box solves this approach, giving full signal right from the start. Getting what you want is what it's all about, this thing is real!

    Best thing I've bought


    Posted by on 9th Jun 2014

    Why buy a house when you can buy and Axe FX II XL?! Are you crazy?! Fractal Audio have blown the roof of everything with this product! I sat down and went through every single patch as soon as I turned it on and it took me a good 1-2 hours. The extensive range of factory presets is just mind blowing. You essentially have a studio in a box from the word go.

    As far as user-friendliness goes the Axe Fx II XL is a bit of a bummer, you really have to sit down, go through the manual and learn how to use it. On the other hand once you get the hang of the unit all it's functions become second nature.

    So far I haven't experienced any problems whatsoever with the Axe Fx. As an artist I've been using my DAW to control it's patches via USB to play along to backing tracks etc. I've found that the processing power of the Axe Fx is so quick that there really isn't any latency between patch changes, it's almost as if I'm just turning a pedal on.

    The detail and intricacies of each amp model is beyond my comprehension. Over 150 amp models and all of the sound different and have more control functions than the actual amps themselves. The effects are super high quality and have all parameters necessary to get it the way you want it with a little bit of tweaking.

    The best thing about the Axe Fx II XL is obviously the tone it produces, with the aid of Axe-Edit (which is the computer program that edits patches) you can really sit down, and dial in a tone you'll be happy with for the rest of your life. You'll find yourself sitting there for hours on end playing on riff, editing an effect, playing the riff, editing the effect and so on. There really isn't an end to the units capabilities.

    Provided your prepared to spend the amount of money that this costs, it will not let you down. Frequent firmware updates render this thing future proof. I highly recommend the Fractal Audio Axe Fx II XL to any artist who wants to take their tone to the next level.
    This is one beast of a unit!!
