Axe Fx Standard

Real Amp Tone and Feel with 70+ Amps

The Axe-Fx is an all-in-one guitar tone and effects processor which accurately recreates the sound and feel of real tube amps. It shines at pure vintage cleans, soars with sweet overdrive, and stuns with brutal modern hi-gain tones. There are currently 70 different vintage and modern amplifier simulations onboard, plus 39 different speaker cabinet types (and unlimited expansion via cabinet IR files.)


The Best Stompbox and Studio Effects
The Axe-Fx also recreates the sounds of the world’s best guitar stompbox and studio effects. Build the virtual pedalboard of your dreams with access to up to 70+ effect types, from vintage and boutique pedals to leading-edge rack processors. Hundreds of onboard preset memories allow you to save any setup for instant recall at the press of a button... and yes, effect tails can "spillover" when you do.


Great Flexibility and Routing Options

Besides its superb sound, the Axe-Fx has unrivalled flexibility, offering greater freedom in many ways even than real gear. (It also weighs a lot less.) Freely place and interconnect amps, cabs, and effect blocks in a 4x12 grid, with complete control of mix and routing at every point. Insert 3rd party gear anywhere in the chain via the stereo effects loop, or use the extra outs to send a different mix to the house PA. Designed with the professional in mind, the Axe-Fx has a full complement of professional i/o, military-spec components, and a rugged, steel 2U chassis. Adding remote expression pedals, switches, or the midi foot controller of your choice puts extensive real-time control literally at your feet.

Ease of Use, Evolution, and Excitement

Despite having some of the world’s most advanced guitar technology inside, the Axe-Fx ’s still easy to use. It challenges the idea that guitarists need to "chase tone" with an ever-increasing arsenal of products by actually evolving over time (as demonstrated by the 10+ free updates we have released since 2006.) Musicians -- including many real life guitar heroes -- tell us that they don't care if it is run by tubes, DSP, or alien nanobots; it sounds great, inspires their creativity and gets them back to making music.

MFC-101 (midi foot controller)

The Fractal Audio Systems MFC-101 is a powerful, versatile, easy-to-use MIDI foot controller designed for use with the Axe-Fx II, Axe-Fx Ultra, Axe-Fx Standard, and/or any other MIDI devices. It puts total control at your feet, with capabilities that musicians have come to demand from a best-in-class foot controller, plus innovations that put the MFC-101 in a class by itself.

The MFC-101 is designed and built to last, ready for life on the road and great night after night on-stage performance:

  • 16-gauge powder-coated steel chassis.
  • Twenty-one heavy-duty footswitches in 3 ergonomic tiers
  • Twenty one bi-color LEDs
  • Brilliant 20-character transflective display
  • Jacks for 4 expression pedals and 4 external switches
  • RJ-45 Port (Ethernet) to connect an Axe-Fx II (Eliminates AC adapter AND Phantom power!)
  • 7-pin MIDI out supports phantom powering the unit

    With incredibly flexible MIDI capabilities and a range of connector options, the MFC-101 is designed to fit diverse needs. A typical scenario is depicted below, showing the MFC-101 with 4 external expression pedals and 4 external switches conntected to an Axe-Fx II by a CAT5 cable (which also powers the MFC-101 without the need for an AC adapter!) An outboard MIDI device is connected at the THRU port of the Axe-Fx II, which is itself connected via USB to a computer for simultaneous editing/recording. Nearly infinite possible scenarios exist; see the MFC-101 or Axe-Fx II user manuals for more ideas.

Axe-Fx Mode makes the MFC-101 Midi Foot Controller the best and easiest way to control a Fractal Audio Systems Axe-Fx II, Ultra, or Standard. The two units are virtually plug and play. Total customization is of course also possible, for those with specific creative requirements.

Axe-Fx mode offers hassle-free setup, smart preset integration, easy FX control, dedicated tap tempo (with matching LED flash), tuner display on the floor, and much more. You will never need to enter or sync preset -- they are read and displayed dynamically each time you stomp, and update automatically if you change them on the Axe-Fx.


The MFC-101 also automatically configures itself to control effect blocks without messy manual CC# mapping. Simply select switch functions from an easy list (ex: "Drive 1 Bypass") and the MFC-101 does the rest. What's more, the bi-color LEDs dynamically show whether the effects behind each switch assignment are ON, OFF, or "not present," reading this information from the Axe-Fx at the moment the preset loads. If you're using the Axe-Fx II, the MFC-101 offers a dedicated LOOPER CONTROL MODE allowing access to all Looper functions in a single layout with no programming required.
