The Axe-Fx III is the latest in our line of the worlds most powerful all-in-one processors for guitar, bass, and other instruments. This new model offers our latest "Ares" amp modeling technology, thousands of UltraRes speaker cab simulations, and state-of-the-art effect algorithms, all backed with more raw power and feature upgrades than any Fractal Audio product before. Our vision was to take the Axe-Fx to a whole new level: to create a totally redesigned platform that sounds better, does more, and is easier to use. Equipped with four processors, the Axe-Fx III contains more raw processing power than any guitar product ever made, by far.

The hardware of the Axe-Fx III was designed around a streamlined new workflow. The centerpiece is a dazzling new high-contrast full-color display with 30x the resolution of previous products. This display works alongside five new endless-rotary push encoders. These push-knobs do different things on different pages, with labels to show dynamic functions. The end result is a user experience thats immediately more intuitive. The display also excels at animation for meters, modifiers, and more.

Better sound quality has been achieved through an audiophile-grade signal path. The difference shines through in lower noise floor, pristine clarity, and better USB audio performance than most dedicated audio interfaces. Computer audio integration now includes a professional-quality 24-bit/48k 88 interface. Record multiple tracks of processed audio at the same time, plus a DI. The re-amping workflow is improved with independent monitoring of backing tracks and re-processed guitar tones while you dial in a sound.Physically, the Axe-Fx III continues our tradition of combining extraordinary design with manufacturing quality rugged enough to withstand the rigors of life on the road. The unit is housed in a steel enclosure with a one-piece anodized aluminum faceplate/bezel featuring a glowing Axe-Fx III logo.

    Axe FX III

    Simply amazing. The sound, the flexibility of this unit is amazing. To have had this 20 years ago when I was a touring musician would have been a dream come true.

    I love this thing! Its a godsend both physically and sonically. I'm done lugging heavy cabs and amps around. This thing takes their place. It has every sound imaginable and one of my favorite features, believe it or not, is the metronome. Between the tone and that handy little gadget, I spend hours at a time practicing. Thanks team Fractal!

    It's definitely the best processor I've ever used! All of my solo album guitar tones are going to be all Axe-Fx III MKII.

    Recently received the unit and have been exploring and building. This thing is insane. You can build inspiring tone after inspiring tone with this baby. If you're thinking about a modeler, don't mess around, just get this one. There is no chance you won't be happy.

    I have owned modeling amps before, I was never satisfied with the tone. It always left me wanting more and I could never tweak it to a point that is sounded natural. It always sounded digital. I currently am gigging using a Bogner Ecstasy Classic with a rack full of effects, sounds phenomenal, but extremely heavy and constantly re-tubing the amp. I purchased the AXE FX III to hopefully find a unit that gives me flexibility with really good tube amp sounds without all the weight to carry around and extra maintenance cost. Success! This unit is awesome, a little difficult to navigate at first, but it did not take long and I was creating tones that I could not have created otherwise. My other guitar player in my band who has a floor pedaling modeling system from the other big competitor, is super jealous right now. In 3 days with little knowledge of the ins and outs of the unit my tones is blowing his out of the water…after he has been tweaking it for 2 years now. I have barely scratched the surface. He just cannot compete tone wise, and now he is going to sale his and buy and AXE FX III. So far super happy and my Bogner by January 2021 will be a studio fixture as the AXE FX III MK II will soon replace my live rig. Kudos to the Fractal Audio Team for building a great unit.

    Absolutely love my Fractal. Blown away by the flexibility and professionalism. I'd Recommend bundling a video tutorial course that goes thru all of the incredibly useful and beautiful tones available, although it is intuitive enough to get started with so many of the great sounding presets, bundling a walk thru of the tone sculpting capabilities would be extremely beneficial.
