Welcome to!

Fractal Audio Systems products are the ultimate tools for the democratization of great guitar tone!  With our services, you can:

  • Learn how to professionally program your favorite guitar tones, using Fractal Audio Systems' amazing Axe-Fx, AX8, or FX8.
  • Move up the learning curve faster with your Axe-Fx/AX8/FX8 editing software suite, so you can focus more time on playing.
  • Enjoy our ready-to-go preset collection containing over 700 different "naked amp" tones  spanning every amp model from clean to rhythm to lead -- ready for studio or live use.

Let AustinBuddy be your Fractal guide.  His number one job is to save you valuable time.  He has thousands of hours experience with Fractal products.  AustinBuddy's hands-on training and tone tips help you avoid common mistakes, to more quickly get you where you want to be.

There is a lot of useful and terrific information already on the internet.  However, it is not always organized in step-by-step fashion, or easy to apply to your own rig.  AustinBuddy can help you cut through the clutter to get what you need.


AustinBuddy has been a Fractal Audio beta tester for over seven years.  He programmed factory presets in the FX8, and has produced several Cab Packs offered at the Fractal Audio web store.  Let AustinBuddy help you get the guitar tones you want from the amazing Fractal Audio Systems product lines.


Now, let's go make some glorious guitar sounds!  Or, as the late great Frank Zappa said, "Shut up and Play your Guitar" ...and Fractal!

Create the Tones You Love!

Great Preset TonePacks!
