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

Some Quantum 2.0 demos

Here's, in one post, all the demos recorded with my Quantum 2.0 presets, which you can get here :

Joe Satriani "Always with me, always with you" cover, recorded with the new JS 410 amp model. I used a sound which is way brighter that I would normally use. Apologies for the blurry video, I did that on purpose as the picture quality of my webcam was bothering me (as on the third video... I'm getting a good webcam soon)

Some parts from "Pull me under" by Dream Theater. For the rhythm, I used a tonematch preset, made with the YouTube video of Petrucci playing the opening riff on a Mesa Boogie MK V 20 watts. I should have made the lead a little brighter this time.

As I'm working on a Pink Floyd tribute concert, I started making David Gilmour presets. Here's one I'll use on "On the turning away", a song I played for the last time in 1990 !

The following videos were recorded with older firmwares, so the sound have changed a little since, however they explain some of the presets concepts : the high gain starting pack, and the 5 scenes presets.

Last but not least, I didn't record a proper demo for my Quantum 2.0 presets, but there's one for version 1.0 here :

Fremen Quantum presets pack 1

I’ve been thinking about it for a while, and finally decided to do presets programming professionally. 

As a result, I’ve never put as much work as I did with my Quantum 2.0 presets. I had a base to work on, but it’s been a while, and many firmware revisions, since I checked/corrected all the scenes in specific presets  - the ones from my High Gain Starting Pack (HGSP, check this : ) or from the five scenes collection (check this : ), just to mention a few examples. I also completely revised my clean sounds, making a preset for each amp model suitable (to my ears of course) for clean sounds (most  are in bank C).

Of course, I can’t ask for money for presets from other users (like Simeon, Yek, Tyler Grund or Bulb, to name a few), or stock presets, even if I modified them a lot, and most of the time I did. So I will still share those for free, in a bank where I regrouped them. Likewise, I will share my non-commercial user IRs for free. Here’s the link for both (the IRs are needed for my commercial presets, so get them) :

However these are not my go-to presets. You won’t find any of my acoustic simulation, clean, crunch, rhythm, lead, blues/fusion, song specific presets here, but mostly special effects, or some bare bones stock presets I like to keep as a reference for some amp models. My own sounds, those I use with my bands or in my videos, are not in there, but in the three banks I’m selling.

So, what are you getting in my commercial pack ?

- My full three banks of presets, most of which use third party IRs (meaning that they're for FRFR systems, not a regular guitar cab). These are the ones I use, with the most tonal variations. All has been updated to Quantum 2.0, and later on, 3.0. (EDIT August 2016 : they're compatible with 4.0, 5.0 and 6.0 too). I took special care (read : hours and hours) on the MKIIC+, the VOX family of amps, and my clean Fender sounds. There is a significant number of brand new presets too (mostly with new or improved amp models etc)
- An alternate version of these three banks, using only free IRs (see the link to download them above) or stock ones. Easier to use if you didn’t buy any commercial IR libraries (but I recommend you to !)
- My collection of drive blocks, which you can load with Axe-Edit
- A spreadsheet detailing my custom user IRs, and explaining many presets
- Cab-Lab 3 screenshots of my user IRs recipes, for those I can’t share because they are commercial

NOTE : this pack has been replaced with an updated version for firmware Quantum 7.02 and above.

The new packs are available on my new website here :

Some more infos of the presets

I  made  all my presets 3 dB quieter than before, to have more headroom. I also took special care to balance the levels between all of them, not only those I use live, but all three banks.  There are two types of levels for my high gain sounds : rhythm and lead. Presets used for lead are around 3 dB louder.

Presets that were made for my high gain starting pack (with HGSP in the name) will have the “rhythm” level in scenes 1, 2 and 5, and “lead” level in scenes 3 and 4.

Boutique presets (end of bank B) are all made for lead playing so they are louder than the rhythm presets. Most Marshall presets too have the level set for lead playing.

The presets are sorted like this :
Bank A : my live presets, 5 scenes presets, fun and special presets
Bank B : high gain (sorted by amp model), high gain starting pack, blues/fusion
Bank C : Marshall, Vox, cleans, special effects.

Also note that I use a MFC-101 with bank size = 10, display offset = 1, and three expression pedals (exp 3 = volume, exp 2 and 1 usage varies but most of the time exp 2 is for wha or whammy, and exp 1 for various morphing effects. Switches 11-15 on my MFC select scenes.
