■ FM3 | FRACTAL AUDIO PRESETS
■ GRAB ALL MY AXEFX TONES HERE
■ New for 2022, I have finally upgraded to the amazing Fractal Axe-FX. It's been on my radar for quite some time, so look out for demos, gear reviews, and various Twitch live stream specials on this amazing unit. Fractal, you've smashed it!
■ Marshall JMP-1?! What Happened?!
■ Many of you know I've been a longtime Marshall JMP-1 user, often just going direct from the speaker emulated outs. For the time being, I will still be taking my JMP-1's out to my IRL (In Real Life) gigs. Live gigs are somewhat unpredictable lol, and I'd rather not put an AxeFx unit on the floor with beer spilling about the place! However, that said, eventually, I will be moving over to AxeFx gear for everything, so maybe a custom made pedalboard to protect things.
■ My main reasons for upgrading were because my JMP-1's are getting old! The effects loops were starting to fail, as well as the internal components. Plus, I just felt it was time to upgrade. So far, I'm excited about the new range of tones available to me. I'm a Fractal convert. The tones and feel of the amps are exceptional.
■ So here are all my FM3 Presets. I will endeavour to keep them updated. I use a few effects nothing outrageous, it was the amp models I bought the FM3 for.
■ I'm always updating my patches and changing my tone as my tastes change, so if you want the latest patches from me, and I've not updated them in a while in Google Drive, then just email me and I'll send them to you. Email Me : email@example.com
■ My Main JMP-1 Preset...
■ I use mainly one preset, my "kitchen sink" preset, consisting of 8 scenes. My main goal, as the AxeFx can feel overwhelming to start with, was to re-create my main JMP-1 tones and effects that I needed to get a livestream/session, and later gig, done!
■ My Scenes are laid out like this:
All blocks use the JMPre-1 OD1 Bass Shift amp, apart from the clean which uses a USA Rhythm 1 amp.
■ 1 - Rhythm
■ 2 - Lead 1
■ 3 - Lead 2
■ 4 - Clean
■ 5 - Whammy Pedal
■ 6 - Talkbox (Formant block)
■ 7 - Floyd Phase 90 (Speed on EV-1)
■ 8 - Big Lead Delay (Lots of Delay)
■ FM3-Edit makes life much easier!
