Best of all Fractal Audio is constantly sending out free software updates. Customer Support: 10/10
I can't say enough about what [Fractal] has done... The customer service [they] give is unreal. [They] actually takes what people want and add it to the Axe-Fx for download... That my friends makes all the difference in the world.
Fractal's forums are awesome.. very friendly, and the customer service is the BEST in the industry. The Axe-Fx is updated very frequently as well.
[Fractal Audio] is a company with incredible customer service who really believe in putting the customer first. They listen to requests and they are constantly improving what is clearly an already great product and passing that onto existing customers through software updates.
Only once or twice in my life have I encountered a company in ANY industry as responsive and supportive as Fractal Audio. It gives you hope that there can be more to the music gear industry than profiteering mega-corps where hollow suits plan obsolescence and turn a deaf ear to both the music and the voice of the customer as well. Fractal on the other hand are real people-- real musicians as well-- who want you to be completely satisfied with every aspect of their work, and it shows. I for one am 10-out-of-10 appreciative.
You would imagine that a company who totally pwns all competition would get more like "the man" who we all deal with when making buys from the other guys. But [they] are every bit as fanatical about great service as [they were] when I bought my first Axe-Fx in 2008 ...Among the very best in any industry.
Stellar! ... the most responsive company I've ever dealt with. They have a very dedicated customer base because of it.
10/10: I've rarely seen another company with such a high end product paying such close attention to its customer requests.
After having the pleasure of using Fractal products for nearly 6 years now I can honestly say that it feels as new today as it did the day I bought it. There simply is no other product in any industry that has a similar customer-value based business model. There really is no other way to express the experience other than surreal. They've got a customer for life.
This is a Disney/Lexus class experience. Customer service at its finest.
