I used to share my presets for free, but now I'm doing it commercially, so I removed all the download links for older firmwares. Check my quantum 2.0 thread for the details. However, if you want the presets for an older firmware you're still using, send me a message on

Free download : TDR project

"TDR Project" is an all instrumental (rock, metal, progressive) album I recorded in my home studio in 1993. I played all the instruments, including bass, small keyboard parts, drums programming (on a Alesis SR16 and a Roland R5) and guitar synth (on a Casio guitar). There's one guest, a friend called GĂ©rard Adam, on track 4, "Urban syndrome". He trades licks with me, that's him on the slide guitar.
I recorded this on a 8 track tape machine, a Tascam TSR-8, mixed it on a Sony DAT recorder and released the album on cassette. Years later, I transfered the DAT recording to my computer, when I got my first PC.

Here's what I used for the album :

Guitars : Ibanez SR something (Satriani style black guitar), Yamaha RGX1212 (which was my first good guitar, I got it in 1988), a Casio synth guitar, Yamaha RBX 300 bass, and a cheap Ovation-like guitar for "Song for Katmandu"
Processors : Art SGX 2000, Boss SE50, a Boss studio compressor. I used the Boss SE50 for the delayed harmonies of "Astral flight" (guitar) and the echoes on the drums (all the song) and the bass (in the intro).
Drum machines : Alesis SR16, Roland R5
Alesis 1622 mixer
Tascam TSR-8

I recorded the guitars direct, using the Art SGX 2000 speaker simulator.

The album has 10 tracks, here I included tracks 11-13 as bonus. Tracks 12 and 13 were both recorded for the local television. on "One minute to live", I used the Art's pitch shifter as a pseudo whammy, controlling the pitch with my expression pedal ; it doesn't glide well, you can hear the 12 half steps. On "Cyberfreak", recorded in 1994, I used a Zoom 9050.

All the songs are now on my Soundcloud page, with the downloads enabled :

There's a video of the song "Astral Flight" here :

Yesterday I uploaded a preset for that one one AxeChange, it uses delayed pitch shifting
