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

Drive pedals shootout + Firmware 19 presets

Although I'm mostly an "amp distortion" kind of player, I thought about doing this shootout for a while, and specially when the drive models were "G3'd" in firmware 19. This is a general overview, not an exhaustive one, as some models works better as boosters, others as drive pedals in clean amps ; and some pedals works better with specific amp models etc. : the Xotic BB Preamp works great on a Mesa Lonestar (Andy Timmons), MXR Distortion+ on a Hiwatt (David Gilmour) etc...

Here's the timeline of this demo :

0:00 The "BB pre" model in a slightly tweaked stock preset (I only touched the delay and reverb settings, amp and cab are stock) (also check this thread : )
0:59 Various drive models as distortion pedals in a dual clean amp custom preset
5:57 Various drive models used to tighten/boost high gain amps. I used a "Rose of Sharyn" DI track for that.
