TOP ROW
INPUT DRIVE – Also known as Drive, Volume, Gain, etc. It is the knob closest
to the input jack. In many cases it has a bright cap so the frequency response
will be dependent on the knob position. As the gain increases the tone shifts
from a treble and upper mid emphasis to a bass and lower mid emphasis. On
jumpered amps, this setting’s label changes to TREBLE DRIVE.
OVERDRIVE – A second drive control for some amp models. It does not have a
bright cap so it only affects the gain. Set Overdrive to 8.00 to get the identical
response to pre-v10.10 firmware for models that have Overdrive. On jumpered
amps, this setting’s label changes to NORMAL DRIVE.
BASS/MID/TREB – “Passive” tone stack. Can be changed with TONESTACK TYPE.
For most tone stacks, when you set the BASS and TREB to zero, the tone stack
becomes basically “flat” and the MID becomes a volume control.
BRIGHT – High treble control shelving filter between the preamp and power
amp. It may be used to darken or brighten the output of the preamp. It
accurately replicates the “Presence” control found in the Mesa Triaxis preamp
when set to negative values. (In the Triaxis, it is actually a high frequency cut
shelving filter.)
PRESENCE – Decreases high frequency negative feedback in the power amp.
Increase it to help sound cut through a heavy mix. Decrease it to compensate
for overly-bright amps. It is tightly coupled to speaker impedance (HI FREQ, HI
RESONANCE.)
HI CUT – On amps with no negative feedback, Presence is replaced with Hi
Cut, a simple high-shelf EQ at the power amp output. (Hi Cut control is nonfuctional in Suhr models.)
DEPTH – Boosts low frequencies from the power amp by varying the negative
feedback frequency response. Amps with a fixed depth circuit have a preset
value. Amps with no depth circuit default to zero (Fenders, most Marshalls, and
generally most older designs). Also called “Resonance” or “Girth” on some amps.
NOTE: Depth is non-functional on most of the USA amp models due to the
unique topology of their feedback networks.
PRESENCE and DEPTH differ from BASS, TREBLE, and BRIGHT in that they
are applied to the power amp as opposed to the preamp. Their effect is
dependent on the amount of NEGATIVE FEEDBACK.
MASTER VOLUME – Determines the amount of power amp distortion. As it
increases, the tone controls have less influence on the sound. Amp models
default to a starting Master Volume setting when selected.
MASTER VOLUME defaults to 10 for non-master volume (vintage) amps. If
you want more MV on non-MV amps, increase MASTER VOL TRIM.
Most MV amps achieve full volume between 2-4. Further increase
compresses the bass and treble, thereby adding mids. (Bass and treble are
boosted by the speaker impedance curve, so they clip earlier.) The sweet
spot is that point at which the power amp starts to compress. If you want
a more “open” sound, be careful not to set the MV too high. You can also
lower XFORMER MATCH (a little goes a long way). You can increase LEVEL to
compensate for low MV.
Cliff: The way I dial in the MV is to turn it up until the amp stops getting
louder. This is the point at which the power amp is saturating heavily. Then I
back it off until I get the right amount of preamp and power amp distortion.
That’s the sweet spot where you get the tone and the dynamics. Too little MV
and it’s all preamp distortion and there’s not much dynamics. Too much MV
and the power amp is clipping too much and it can get flubby and/or harsh.
BOTTOM ROW
INPUT TRIM – A clean, linear gain applied at the input to the amp block that
adjusts the relative gain of the preamp. (This is analogous to changing the type
of tube for V1 in an actual amp.) It does the same thing as the BOOST switch,
the difference being that you can control how much is boosted or cut (+/-20
dB). As a rule of thumb, every 2x multiplier equals +6dB boost. In other words,
Input Trim at 4.0 produces a +12dB boost. Input Trim should be set to 1.00 if
you want to match the actual amp.
You can also adjust preamp gain globally with GLOBAL AMP GAIN, which
affects every amp and preset. One reason you might do this is to compensate
for the gain difference when switching to a hotter/­quieter guitar.
On the Axe-Fx unit: GLOBAL button > CONFIG > AMP GAIN
BOOST – Toggles the input boost for an additional 12 dB of input gain. Enabling
Boost sometimes works better than turning up INPUT TRIM.
CUT – Reduces the amount of low frequencies into the amp. This can be used
to achieve a tighter tone or to reduce low-end “flub”. This is similar to increasing
LOW CUT (Preamp page) while still retaining some low end so it doesn’t get
thin. Provides an easy way to cut the overpowering bass in models such as
Recto, Splawn Nitro, Komet and others.
FAT – Emphasizes midrange “body” by shifting down the tone stack center
frequency. Specifically, it multiplies the tone stack treble capacitor by four.
Depending upon the type of tone stack, tone control settings, position, etc., the
effect can be more or less noticeable. (See TONE page.)
BRIGHT SWITCH – Engages a capacitor across the drive pot. It is a “treble
peaker” which functions mainly to compensate for the loss of highs at low
amp volume. The effect may be subtle or pronounced, depending on the amp
selected, and it is also affected by the BRIGHT CAP.
BRIGHT CAP – Sets the value of the capacitor which determines the sonic effect
of the BRIGHT switch. Increase to make the preamp brighter and vice-versa.
SATURATION SWITCH – Switches in a zener diode clipping stage between
the preamp and the tone stack (the “Arrendondo Mod”) for more aggressive
distortion character which also adds compression and cuts volume.
AUTH – replicates authentic saturation circuit behavior and lowers the
volume out of the virtual preamp.
IDEAL – replicates the idealized behavior from firmware v14.xx and earlier.
SATURATION DRIVE – Controls the amount of saturation.
SATURATION changes the distortion character. To preserve the distortion
character and tone use BOOST or INPUT TRIM instead.
MASTER VOL TRIM – Can be used to increase (or decrease) the Master Volume
for non-MV amps. If MV is 10 and you set MV Trim to 2.0 then the MV will be 20.
To correct “flubby” bass, decrease MASTER VOLUME or increase PWR AMP
HARDNESS.
Amp Block
TOP ROW
PREAMP TUBE TYPE – 12AX7A SYL is the default. The EF86 has been normalized
to have roughly the same gain as the triode types.
PREAMP BIAS – Controls the bias point of the last triode (cathode follower not
counted) in the preamp. Depending on the bias points of the previous stages
increasing or decreasing this value can alter both the harmonic content (the
ratio of even/odd harmonics) and the attack characteristics. The further you
move away from (roughly) zero the more even harmonics are introduced. It’s
an asymmetric transfer function so you have to experiment. Typically, if the
previous stage has a negative bias then increasing this value will be more
noticeable and vice-versa. Use with PREAMP HARDNESS.
PREAMP BIAS is one of the main tools that amp designers use in voicing
Marshall-style amps. For these amps you’ll notice the amp gets tighter as you
set Preamp Bias negative and chunkier for positive values. Too negative and
things get thin and sputtery. Too positive and the lows get farty.
PREAMP HARDNESS – Controls how sharply the triodes enter saturation and
can be used to simulate softer/harder tubes. The effect is subtle and most
apparent at edge of breakup. Lower values give softer saturation and will
sound softer (naturally) but have less note separation. Preamp Hardness at zero
gives a smoother distortion with reduced upper harmonics. Higher values give
a more aggressive breakup and better note separation.
PREAMP TUBE TYPE, PREAMP BIAS, and PREAMP HARDNESS are the primary
controls that affect saturation behavior.
TRIODE1/2 PLATE FREQ – Sets the cutoff frequency of the plate impedance for
the next-to-last (triode 1) and last (triode 2) triode in the chain, which allows
you to control the buzziness that sometimes occurs with higher gain settings.
The capacitor across the triode’s plate resistor is used to smooth the response
and reduce noise. You can adjust the amount of capacitance, and the resulting
frequency. Lowering the frequencies dials out sharpness and “fizz”, making the
tone smoother. (Also see HIGH CUT FREQ to reduce “fizz”.)
CRUNCH – Makes things more crunchy. It controls the distortion texture when
you hit a note or chord.
BOTTOM ROW
TONESTACK TYPE
ACTIVE – Gives each tone control ±12 dB boost/cut making them more
sensitive; they also will not interact with each other.
DEFAULT – Matches the tone stack with the selected amp type.
[AMP] – Replaces the default tone stack with one from another amp.
The tone stack is one of the main things that gives an amp its particular
voice, as it shapes the frequency response pretty drastically.
For a flat tone stack, set the TONESTACK TYPE to Neutral with B/M/T at noon.
This allows the flexibility of being able to boost or cut bass and treble.
With the BF Fixed Mid tone stack, the value of the virtual resistor is 6.8K when
the Mid control is at noon.
TONE LOCATION
PRE – Places the tone stack at the input to the preamp.
POST – Places it between the preamp and power amp.
MID – Places it between the last two triode stages.
END – Places it after the power amp (which is impossible with a real amp).
The farther upstream you position the stack, the thinner the sound.
MID will sound chunkiest, with END being rather dark.
TONE FREQ – Sets the center frequency of the tone controls. This control works
whether you are using PASSIVE, ACTIVE, or substitute tone stacks.
LOW CUT FREQ – Reduces the amount of low frequency (10-1000Hz) before the
preamp input. Use this is to tighten up a tubby bass end. Somewhere between
10-150Hz is generally where it will sound best for standard guitar tones. Also
see CUT (Basic page).
In the design of some amps the LOW CUT FREQ is dependent upon the
DRIVE setting. In these cases the LOW CUT FREQ parameter defaults to 10 Hz
and the actual low cut filtering is calculated as part of the DRIVE function.
HIGH CUT FREQ – Reduces the amount of high frequency (2k-20kHz) after the
preamp output. Lower the value to make your top end sound smooth and silky,
raise it to make it brilliant and defined. (Also see TRIODE PLATE FREQ to reduce
“fizz”.)
DEFINITION – A basic “tilt EQ” located at the amp input. It changes the
fundamental character of the amp from vintage to modern or vice-versa.
Positive values increase the amount of upper overtone saturation, negative
values reinforce lower harmonics.
HARMONICS – Softens preamp distortion when increased. Default is zero.
Amp Block
TOP ROW
NEGATIVE FEEDBACK – Controls the amount of negative feedback in the power
amp. The feedback decreases output impedance, causing the amp to react less
to the speakers (”damping”). Higher values give a brighter, tighter, punchier
sound but can be harsh at very high MASTER levels. Lower values give a
smoother, loose and gritty sound and feel.
Setting NEGATIVE FEEDBACK to 0 disables it and replaces the PRESENCE
control with HI CUT. DEPTH is also disabled since it only affects negative
feedback.
PI BIAS SHIFT – Controls the amount of phase inverter bias shift. Note that some
real amps are “spitty” in nature due to PI bias shifting, i.e. Trainwrecks, and the
new algorithm is designed to replicate that behavior accurately. If you find the
behavior undesirable reduce the PI Bias Shift value as desired although this will
reduce authenticity.
PWR TUBE GRID BIAS – Sets the quiescent operating current of the virtual
power tubes. Increase it to reduce crossover distortion and vice-versa. Lower
values approach pure Class-B operation. Higher values approach pure Class-A.
Increase PWR TUBE GRID BIAS to thicken clean tones; reduce it to add
aggression to high-gain sounds. A value of 0.5 or so will run the virtual tubes
at around 75% of full power and clean tones will sound warmer but you will
lose that sizzle on high-gain tones.
BIAS EXCURSION – Grid modeling parameter that controls how much the
power tube grid voltage droops when the grids conduct.
CATHODE RESISTANCE – Sets the amount of bias shift due to cathode voltage
rise. (Zero defeats the cathode squish modeling.) It improves the feel of
cathode-biased power amp models (Class-A, Mr Z, etc.)
BOTTOM ROW
POWER TUBE TYPE – Selects a specific power tube type and sets DYNAMIC
DAMPING. This doesn’t change the sound in the same way actually
changing tubes would because it only changes the distortion curves,
not the transconductance. In real amps, an EL34 has more than twice the
transconductance of a 6L6. This means the plate current will be twice as great
for a given grid voltage. This makes EL34s sound “more midrangey” and 6L6s
sound “tighter’”or “fuller”.
MV LOCATION – Location of the Master Volume.
PRE-PI – Before the phaser inverter (most amps).
POST-PI – After the phase inverter (AC types). This causes the PI to clip
before the grids (if the MV is less than full). This creates a very aggressive and
open sound.
PRE-TRIODE – Amp types based on Hiwatt models.
POST-PI MV turns a lot of mid-gain amps into ripping monsters. The only
caveat is that, like a real amp, the more you turn the MV down the less
effective Presence and Depth become (since the loop gain is reduced).
MV CAP – Sets the value of the bright cap across the Master Volume pot.
Setting it to 1.0 pF disables it.
PRESENCE SHIFT – Only available on Mesa Boogie Mark IV’s with a “Pull Shift”
on the Presence knob (USA LEAD, USA PRE LD2, and USA RHYTHM). When
engaged, it normalizes the amount of high frequencies produced in the power
section. PRESENCE will be more effective and will act on a higher frequency
range. Note that it may result in volume reduction since the negative feedback
is increased which lowers the loop gain.
PWR AMP HARDNESS – Controls the hardness of the virtual power tube grid
clipping.
Adjusting PWR AMP HARDNESS is often not noticeable because negative
feedback around the power amp makes the distortion harder. You can make
the power amp distortion softer by reducing NEGATIVE FEEDBACK.
To correct “flubby” bass, decrease MASTER VOLUME or increase PWR AMP
HARDNESS.
PWR AMP BIAS – Controls the amount of power tube mismatch by adjusting
the offset voltage of the virtual power amp. A value of zero produces nearly
symmetrical clipping which will produce very little even harmonics. Higher
values will produce increasingly asymmetrical clipping which increases the
amount of even harmonics. Small amounts of even harmonics can make the
power amp distortion sound “warmer” and more bell-like while higher amounts
will give a “fuzzier” tone.
PRESENCE FREQ – Alters the center frequency of the amp’s PRESENCE control.
DEPTH FREQ – Alters the center frequency of the amp’s DEPTH control.
Amp Block
TOP ROW
SUPPLY SAG – Controls power supply impedance. Higher settings simulate
higher power supply impedance, causing greater tube plate voltage (B+)
“droop” and giving a more compressed, spongy and looser feel. Sag interacts
with the MASTER: as the power amp is pushed and draws more current from its
power supply, Sag has more effect. Sag values around 2 simulate a solid-state
rectifier, 4-6 a tube rectifier.
BOTTOM ROW
PREAMP SAG – OFF replicates the behavior of separate preamp and power
amp. ON replicates the behavior of an integrated tube head or combo amp.
POWER TYPE – When set to AC, models AC rectification and resulting supply
ripple. High SUPPLY SAG along with low B+ TIME CONSTANT can cause “ghost
notes” when the supply type is AC (as in a real amp). Lower B+ Time Constant
values will make the amp feel “faster” but too low can cause ghost notes.
In general, the more heavily driven the power amp section is, the more effect
the SUPPLY SAG has. Setting SUPPLY SAG to 0 disables the power amp and
turns the MASTER into a simple level control with a 40 dB range.
AC LINE FREQ – Selects the line frequency.
B+ TIME CONSTANT – Associated with SUPPLY SAG. Controls rate of change
in power tube plate supply (in other words, the supply sag response time).
“B+” refers to one of the high voltage “taps” or outputs of the main power
transformer. Lower values give a bouncier feel, while higher values give a
tighter, more aggressive feel. The effect of lower B+ is equivalent to increasing
XFORMER MATCH. A lower B+ means the plates clip sooner which is the same
as increasing the turns ratio on the transformer. This is assuming that you rebias
since typically lower the B+ affects the bias.
VARIAC – AC voltage control that sets the relative AC line voltage into the
amp simulation implementing a virtual “Variac”. Note that normally the
volume would vary with the Variac setting in a real amp but the simulation
compensates for the volume change by applying the inverse. This mitigates
having to manually compensate using the Output Level.
TREMOLO FREQ/DEPTH (bias tremolo) – Works by varying the bias of the virtual
power tubes, resulting in a particularly “organic” sound. Most importantly,
the tremolo is “self-ducking” and decreases at higher signal amplitudes. On
some amps high values of bias trem depth can result in excessive crossover
distortion. On others, the tremolo can vary greatly between loud and soft
playing.
Amp Block
TOP ROW
LOW RES FREQ/Q/RESONANCE – Guitar loudspeakers have a low-frequency
resonance, typically about 100 Hz. This shifts up slightly when the speaker
is mounted in an enclosure and is typically lower for open back cabs. This
resonance causes an increase in the power amplifier response due to the finite
output impedance of the power amp. The default LF Resonance is based on the
cab most likely to be used with that amp. The Low Resonance parameter can be
used to increase or decrease the amount of “thunk” or “knock”.
Don’t be afraid to turn LOW RESONANCE close to 10. In fact, some Celestion
and Eminence speakers are equivalent to about 8-9 on LOW RESONANCE.
This will increase the interaction between the power tubes and the speaker
load.
HI FREQ – Sets the “corner frequency” of the speaker impedance rise due to
voice-coil inductance. The speaker voice-coil presents an inductive load to the
power amp at high frequencies. This inductive load, in conjunction with the
output transformer capacitance, creates a high-frequency resonance. Typical
guitar speakers have a corner frequency between 1 kHz and 2 kHz. Lower
values give more midrange emphasis.
HI FREQ SLOPE – Allows fine adjustment of the high-frequency impedance
of the virtual voice coil (which affects the slope of the impedance curve).
Reducing the Slope simulates a speaker that is less inductive, increasing Slope
simulates a speaker that is more inductive. Typical speakers range from 3.0
to 4.5 with the median being about 3.7. Lower values yield greater midrange
while higher values are more scooped and sizzly.
HI RESONANCE – Similar to HI FREQ but this control only changes the slope
of the resonance. Default value is consistent with typical “semi-inductance”
of speaker voice-coil. Varying this value will change the high-frequency load
presented to the power tubes.
BOTTOM ROW
XFORMER LOW/HIGH FREQ – These set the output transformer bandwidth.
XFORMER MATCH – One of the most powerful controls in the amp block. It
changes the turns ratio (and therefore the primary impedance) of the output
transformer, which controls how easily power tubes are driven into clipping.
Decreasing causes the power tubes to clip later, the phase inverter and grid
clipping become more predominant, and the speaker resonance will be more
pronounced. You also reduce the power tube compression of the lows and
highs. This control has more influence with higher MASTER values and low
gain amps and less influence with highly compressed amps. Increase MASTER
until desired amount of power amp distortion is achieved, then adjust XFormer
Match for sound’s character: higher = more compressed, lower = more open.
The LF/HF RESONANCE parameters interact strongly with this parameter.
Use XFORMER MATCH to intentionally mismatch speaker impedance in order
to get a different tone. To simulate plugging an 8-ohm speaker into a 4-ohm
jack, set it to 2.0. For the other way around, set it to 0.5.
XFORMER DRIVE – Sets the amount of core saturation in the output
transformer, controling how hard the transformer is driven. Higher values
simulate a smaller, more easily saturated transformer.
XFORMER GRIND – Controls the intensity of the dynamic core loss and leakage
inductance effects of the output transformer modeling. Higher values result in
more high frequency response and a more “open” sound. Very high values can
yield a raspy, spitty tone common in vintage and/or low wattage amps. Modern
“big iron” amps tend to have low values. The audibility is dependent upon
how hard the virtual power amp is driven and is more noticeable as the MV is
increased. The effect in real amps is highly dependent on the speaker: some
speaker/transformer combinations exhibit significant high frequency dynamic
boost while other combinations yield almost none.
The SPEAKER page is not an EQ. It allows you to adjust the impedance that
the virtual speaker presents to the virtual power tubes. For a guitar amp with
no negative feedback, the voltage frequency response of the power amp will
very closely match this since the power amp is basically a current source. For
a guitar amp with negative feedback, the resulting EQ is quite different than
the impedance curve since negative feedback flattens the response. If you
turn NEG FDBK all the way down then the EQ will be close to the impedance
curve (but still influenced by the transformer.)

TOP ROW
SPEAKER DRIVE – Simulates distortion caused by pushing a speaker too far. It
interacts with the MASTER.
BOTTOM ROW
MOTOR DRIVE – Models the effect of high power levels on speaker tone.
Firmware Q7.02 introduced an improved algorithm that more accurately
models the compression of guitar loudspeakers by factoring in the reactive
aspects of the compression. Start with the setting at 4dB.
MOTOR TIME CONST – Controls the thermal time constant of the virtual voice
coil. Typical guitar speakers are anywhere from 0.05 to 1.0 seconds depending
upon the mass of the voice coil and the materials used.
The Motor Drive simulation is available in both the Amp block and Cab block.
It is recommended to use the simulation in the Amp block when using an
FRFR configuration as the Amp block simulation uses the speaker resonance
information in the calculations whereas the Cabinet block uses fixed values.
When using a conventional guitar cab, or a hybrid configuration with
monitoring via a conventional guitar cab and speaker emulation to FOH,
the Motor Drive in the Cabinet block can be used instead. The simulation in
the Amp block also has the advantage of being independent of the block’s
output Level control.

TOP ROW
BOTTOM ROW
DYNAMIC PRESENCE – Models the output transformer leakage inductance that
results in a brightening of the tone when the power amp is pushed. Increasing
this value results in a brighter response as the virtual power amp is pushed.
When playing softly or at lower gains, the influence of this control is lessened.
Note that this only affects the power amp modeling and is dependent on
the degree of power amp overdrive. This control can also be set negative to
cause the tone to darken when playing hard. This control can also be used
to help “dial in” the sweet spot of an amp model. As the MV is increased an
amp becomes more liquid, compressed and easier to play. However, the
highs may get overly compressed causing the amp to sound too dark. The
Dynamic Presence control allows you to get the desired power amp drive and
liquid feeling and then bring the highs back without affecting the rest of the
spectrum.
OUT COMP TYPE – Sets the mode of the Amp block’s output compressor:
OUTPUT – The previous type where the compressor acts on the output of
the block.
FEEDBACK – Also compresses the block output but applies dynamics to the
input of the block based on the output compression.
DYNAMIC DEPTH – Analogous to the Dynamic Presence control, this increases
or decreases low frequencies when the virtual amp is being pushed. While real
amps don’t display this behavior, it is a valuable tone-shaping tool.
OUT COMP CLARITY – Adjusts the bass response of the input dynamics and can
be used to add clarity to the bass.
DYNAMIC PRESENCE/DEPTH are distortion-sensitive. The more the waveform
distorts (the harder you play) the more pronounced the depth or presence
boost/cut. If you play lightly (assuming you aren’t using stupid amounts
of gain) the controls won’t seem to do much. As you play harder the effect
becomes greater.
PREAMP DYNAMICS – Controls the amount of preamp compression.
PICK ATTACK – Controls a sophisticated dynamic range processor that operates
on leading edge transients. Negative values reduce pick attack while positive
values enhance it.
PREAMP CF COMP TYPE – Selects the type of preamp compressor:
AUTHENTIC – Accurately models the compression in a tube amp. Bolder
and looser than Ideal.
IDEAL – An idealized distorting compressor. More focused and has tighter
bass than Authentic. High gain players may prefer the ideal type due to its tight
character.
OUT COMP AMOUNT – Leveling compressor (think LA-2A) specifically tailored
to reduce the output dynamic range of the Amp block. It can also be used to
simulate the compression you get from a dynamic microphone and/or some
mic preamps. The parameter value is the compression ratio, which equals 1 + 3
* comp / 10. Attack and release are fixed.
OUT COMP THRESHOLD – Sets the level at which OUT COMP AMOUNT reduces
the amplitude of the audio signal when that level is exceeded.
CHARACTER TYPE – Selects between a shelving behavior, peaking behavior,
and Dynamic behavior. (With Dynamic, the character settings are engaged
by playing harder. It can be used to fatten or scoop the tone as a function of
picking strength.)
CHARACTER FREQ/AMT – These two parameters control powerful “inverse
homomorphic filters”. When playing softly this dynamic filter has little effect
on the sound. As the amount of distortion increases, the influence of the
filter increases. The Character Freq control sets the center frequency of the
filter while the Character Amt control sets how pronounced the effect is. For
example, to darken the tone when playing harder, one might set the frequency
to 10 kHz and the amount to -5. Setting the amount to +5 will make the tone
brighter when playing hard.
CHARACTER Q – Controls the bandwidth of the response when the peaking
behavior is chosen.
PREAMP CF COMPRESS – Controls the amount of preamp compression and sets
the compression threshold of the cathode follower. Many models default to
zero as they do not have measureable compression.
PREAMP CF RATIO – Sets the maximum amount of compression, with lower
values giving more compression.
PREAMP CF TIME – Sets the attack time of the compressor.
PREAMP CF HARDNESS – Adjusts the shape of the cathode follower distortion.
Amp Block
TOP ROW
CAB – Loads a cabinet impulse response (IR). The older FAS and RW cabs were
recorded with neutral mics. OH, Kalthallen, and the Mix/Producer Pack series
have matching mics included in the IR.
SPEAKER SIZE (NORMAL/HI RES ONLY) – “Scales” the IR to simulate shrinking
or enlarging of the speaker. This effect can be used to shift where the tone sits
in a mix, or to create dramatic effects. Subtle settings (0.9-1.1) will sound most
natural. UltraRes IRs do not support size warping, therefore, this parameter is
disabled for UltraRes cabinets.
DEPHASE1 – Controls a sophisticated process that removes the “phasiness” from
IRs and can yield a more “in the room” experience. The higher the setting the
more “character” you remove.
LOW/HIGH CUT1 – Adjusts the cutoff point of first order low/high pass filters.
Increase the Low Cut if the sound is too “bassy” or “boomy.” Decrease the High
Cut for a darker cab tone. Common settings are 80-150 Hz for high pass, and
5-7 kHz for low pass.

INVERT – Inverts the signal allowing for interesting effects in conjunction
with the DELAY parameter.
MIC – Don’t feel that you have to add a mic unless you want to add EQ, which
is basically what you would be doing.
DELAY – Delays the signal up to 1 second. With cab in stereo mode or with
two cab blocks in parallel, delaying one cab relative to the other can achieve
interesting comb filter effects. A common practice in studio recording is to use
multiple mics on a speaker at different distances to intentionally introduce it.
The effect is most pronounced when the cabs are summed to mono.
PROXIMITY – Causes an increase in bass or low frequency response as proximity
is increased (closer to speaker). Disabled when MIC is set to None.
PROXIMITY FREQ1 – Allows tuning the frequency range over which the
proximity effect occurs.

Understanding All the Different Gain Controls
The amp block in the Axe-Fx has a variety of gain controls that change depending upon the amp model selected.
These controls are:
Input Drive
Input Trim
Overdrive
Master Volume
These various controls are located at fixed points in the virtual amplifier circuit as follows:
MV
CAP
BRIGHT

INPUT BUFFER

Input Drive
This is the modeled amp’s gain, drive, volume, etc. control. It adjusts the attenuation at the input to the amplifier gain
stages after the input buffer. On a Marshall Plexi, for example, it is the “Loudness” control. On a typical Fender amp it is
the “Volume” control. On many high-gain amps it is called either “Gain” or “Drive”.
On a real amp this is implemented using a variable resistor (potentiometer). Many amps include a “bright cap” on the
drive control which is a small value capacitor placed across the terminals of the pot that bleeds treble frequencies
through as the gain is reduced. Sometimes this bright cap is switchable via a switch on the amp. Sometimes it is fixed.
Input Trim
The Input Trim control adjusts the input attenuation without changing the frequency response. If you turn down the
Input Drive and the model has a bright cap the amp will get brighter. Now you may like the brighter tone but wish
there were more gain. Input Trim allows you to increase the gain without changing the tone. Conversely you may like
the darker tone with Input Drive set high but wish there were less gain. In this case you can lower Input Trim.
Most real amps do not possess an Input Trim control. Instead they usually have a switch or two input jacks that select
between a high-gain and low-gain input. Almost invariably the difference between these two jacks is 6 dB. All the
Axe-Fx amps are modeled using the high-gain input or switch position (if any). To simulate the low-gain input set the
Input Trim to 0.5 which is 6 dB less.
Overdrive
Some amps possess an attenuation control between the later gain stages. Examples of the are the Mesa/Boogie Mark
series, Dumble ODS and others. This control allows the user to vary the gain staging. The Input Drive can be turned up
and the Overdrive turned down so that the earlier stages distort more and the later stages distort less and vice-versa.
Master Volume
The Master Volume (MV) controls how much signal level is sent to the power amp. Many vintage amps have no MV
control and the power amp runs “wide open”. Modern amps often get their distortion from the preamp and the Master
Volume then allows the user to control the volume of the amp.
The Master Volume in the Axe-Fx II, as well as on real amps, is probably the singular most powerful control in the amp
block. As the Master Volume is increased the virtual power amp begins to distort. The virtual power amp also begins to
sag and all sorts of beautiful magic occurs. The tone becomes more focused, the dynamic response changes, the note
attack is accentuated, etc.
The key to crafting the ultimate tone involves understanding these controls and learning how to balance them.

Cliff’s Workflow
1) Pick an amp and set everything to default settings.
2) Select a cab IR that is compatible with the amp (1x12, 2x12, etc.)
3) Choose an IR with an R121 or M160 as these have the best low end.
4) Change the cab block to stereo and find a complementary IR from
the same cab to get the desired brilliance, usually an SM57 or 4047.
5) Go back to the amp block and dial it in.
