AC30/6 TB TM – Fractal Presets (Axe-FX III, FM3, FM9)


Fractal Axe-FX III, FM3, and FM9 presets featuring our Korg-era Vox AC30/6 Top Boost amplifier. For this preset, we’ve tone matched the Fractal hardware to the actual amplifier, resulting in patch that sounds almost exactly like the amp. Includes scenes to for instant sounds and custom per-preset mapping and overrides for use with the Fractal FC-12. This preset is also perfect for running a stereo board into it.



This download includes patches for Axe-FX III, FM3, and FM9. Please make sure to import the appropriate patch for your hardware – they are not interchangeable.

  1. AC30/6 TB TM WT (SC)– this preset is voiced for single coils and low-output humbuckers
  2. AC30/6 TB TM WT (HB) – this preset is voiced for more traditional humbuckers

Both presets are the same except for the amp, EQ, and control switch settings. See the ‘Control Switch’ section below for more info.

NOTE: The FM3 folder includes an ‘FX” patch. This patch includes the additional effects blocks from the full Axe-FX and FM9 patches. Feel free to substitute any of these effects blocks into the main patch to suite your needs.


For this preset, we matched the Vox AC30 Top Boost amp model in the Fractal units to the our Korg-era 2002 Vox AC30/6 Top Boost amplifier using Fractal’s Tone Match feature. Our Vox features two Alnico Blue speakers. We matched the Fractal amp model to the Brilliant channel on our Vox (our favorite). The result is Tone Match user cab (included) that completely transforms the Fractal amp model – it sounds exactly like our Vox.

The FM3 presets cannot fit all the effects into a single patch. For that platform, we include the amp and essential effects in the main presets, and then we include the additional effects blocks in the ‘FX’ preset. Feel free to mix and match the additional ‘FX’ blocks into the main patches to suite your needs.


For each effect block, we set up all four channels to give you as many options as possible for each individual effect types. For example, in the Compressor block, there are four different types of compression. For drives, we use all available channels in each drive block to get different overdrive flavors. Please experiment with the channels in all the different blocks to find your favorites. Typically we use our favorites in Channel A.

The exceptions to this are usually the amp and cab blocks – for those we usually only set up Channel A.


  • Scene 1: CLEAN. Basic clean tone with verb and quarter delay
  • Scene 2: DRIVE. Light Drive (Drive 1A)
  • Scene 3: DRIVE+. Med Drive (Drive A, Control Switch 1)
  • Scene 4: P&W LEAD. Big lead tone with delay and reverb
  • Scene 5: AMBI CLEAN. Clean tone with stereo delay (1/4 + 1/8d) and big reverb.
  • Scene 6: 80’s CLEAN. Clean tone with chorus
  • Scene 7: POG LEAD. Big lead tone like snap 4 but with POG
  • Scene 8: SWELLS. Big ambient tones

In the output block under the ‘Scene Levels’ tab, we’ve adjusted the output level for scenes 4 and 7 (the lead scenes) to have a 1dB boost.
