Cab Pack Vol 1: Wellspring Sound is a collection of over 200 user cab files for the Axe-Fx II, Axe-Fx Ultra or Standard, or AX8. User cab files may be easily uploaded to your Axe-Fx II or AX8 using Fractal-Bot, or to the Ultra/Standard with any MIDI SysEx file player.

Axe-Fx II Firmware 10 included a collection of new built-in "Factory Cabs", created through a different approach than previous offerings. Instead of capturing elements for later remix, we asked studio owners with incredible vintage gear collections to give us their best shot the mics/positions/preamps they would use for the discriminating player. Instead of strict mechanical positioning, mics were placed from experience and blended by ear.

For each guitar cab, we captured the producer's Mix, and these became the new Factory cabs included with firmware 10. In addition to those mixes, however, these sessions produced a great number of additional IRs, now offered here. These include captures of every individual mic in each mix, plus others which were initially set up but then muted. Together these IRs give you a palette of tones captured from the incredible cabs in the Wellspring collection (plus a few amps we carried with us to the studio).
