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

Fremen AmpliFire presets - January 2016

Hi, fellow AmpliFire users !

So here it is, my latest batch of presets (for FRFR setups), including some made with the upcoming MK IV amp model (Tom sent me a beta version). I recorded that video a few days ago and made some more presets since...

Now, an important note : as you all know, we can’t share presets using commercial IRs. I have a few presets using commercial IRs by Ownhammer, so I won’t share those. However, most of my presets uses custom hybrid IRs which I made using various methods - mixing free IRs from various sources, tonematching guitar stems (and even YouTube videos of guitar amps !), tonematching of presets from other guitar processors with Ozone, and even of other guitars. For example, I borrowed a Strat, captured its position 4 “quack” sound and used it as a source, my Ibanez position 4 sound as a destination, and applied the resulting curve (with Ozone) to a custom “Fender” cab – so now my Ibanez, with that cab, sounds more like a Strat. It may sounds weird, but it works :)
Note that these cabs and the presets using them are NOT exact tonematches of the presets from the other modelers (and by choice, none of my original presets which are from the Axe-Fx uses FAS stock or cab packs – they use various free cabs) : they are more “in the ballpark” but not identical cabs/presets, using some EQ’ing to suit the AmpliFire amp models, according to my taste. And even after the tonematching process, I tweaked the AmpliFire presets again.
As a result, these custom cabs are not exact representations of existing cabs, like those sold by Ownhammer, or those shared by Jay Mitchell. But what matters to me is that they sound how I like to complement the AmpliFire amp models, often with fatter low mids, for example. Of course you can always import the Ownhammer you bought to use them with my presets !
