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 d3usxm4ch1n4@gmail.com

Axe-Fx packs for Quantum 7.02 and above

Hi folks ! Today I'm releasing two packs for the Axe-Fx II...


1) Fremen's picks (Axe-Fx II, Quantum 7.02)

This is my main pack for Axe-Fx II MKI/II, XL/XL+ and Quantum firmware 7.02 (older firmware not supported). It's the presets I use live with my cover bands, or which I use just for fun. They're all in my bank A, so there's 128 presets here. They cover all the bases I need : clean, crunch, mid gain, high gain, blues fusion, special effects... Until I release a proper demo, here's a few videos ; the synth pad beneath is also in the preset.




These presets will work with a variety of guitars but are optimized for superstrats with a humbucker in bridge and neck and a single coil in the middle. I used an Ibanez RG to tweak them and usually uses position 4 of the pickup selector (middle single coil pickup + splitted bridge humbucker) for the clean and crunch presets, and the bridge or neck humbuckers for mid to high gain. Updates for these presets, if necessary because of changes in the firmware, will be free for one year (until March 2018)

These presets uses 60 user cabs, which I made from free sources and various techniques like tone matching. All those cabs are included and must be installed at the user spots indicated by their names (see video, link below). 
Here's my user cabs list :

2) Fremen's 5 scenes presets pack (for Axe-Fx II, firmware Quantum 7.02)


My second pack for Axe-Fx II MKI/II, XL/XL+ and Quantum firmware 7.02 (older firmware not supported) is a collection of « 5 Scenes » presets, with not less than 90 presets, from 88 different amp models. Here's a small "making off" video :


Each presets has 5 scenes with various amount of gain, from clean (scene 1) to high gain lead (scene 5)
They will work with a variety of guitars but are optimized for superstrats with a humbucker in bridge and single coils. I made sure that the sound stays clean with bridge humbuckers (DiMarzio The Breed and Norton, Bare Knuckle Holydiver) on scene 1, even with amp models made for high gain.

I used an Ibanez RG to tweak them and plays with position 4 of the pickup selector (middle single coil pickup + splitted bridge humbucker) for the first three scenes, and the bridge humbucker for scenes 4 and 5. Updates for these presets, if necessary because of changes in the firmware, will be free for one year (until March 2018)

These presets uses mostly stock cabs, but also 16 user cabs, which I made from free sources and various techniques like tone matching. All those cabs are included and must be installed at the user spots indicated by their names (see video, link below). 
Here's my user cabs list : http://pages.intnet.mu/fremen/Misc/Fremen_user_cabs_(02.04.2017).xls


If you want to edit a 5 scenes preset, changes the amount of gain or volume of a specific scene, watch the "Updating a 5 scenes presets to Q7.02" video above

Legal stuff : these packs are digital downloads. No refund even in case of buying by mistake. The download link will be emailed to you by e-junkie and I will receive a copy of that mail too. If you don't get it, please check your spam folder.
The presets are in a .rar compressed archive, which is a standard format. PC users can use Winrar, Winzip or 7zip to extract them. Popular tools for MAC users are Stuffit Expander, Unrar x or The Unarchiver. Most computers already have tools for that, and most of these applications are free.

  3. Hi Thibault, I bought both packs but need advice on the Excel spreadsheet for the Picks Pack concerning the cabs. I'm assuming that the Cab headings eg Cab1XLeft etc are setting out the stereo slots for the X and Y function of Cabs 1 and 2. However, I'm confused,for example, on the Twin Reverb Clean. The preset only has Cab 2 with Fender 2 IR in X Left and Fender 6 IR in Y Left. The preset does not use Y in any of the scenes. Why therefore is there a reference to Y in the Excel sheet. If that information is correctly on the sheet, how do I set up those two different IR's in the preset? Apologies if this is a dumb question. Thanks, Peter

    1. The excel sheet is made by Fractool. There may be cabs in X or Y that I don't use. Sometimes they're there for comparison purposes when I was tweaking the presets, sometimes because I used it on an older preset… You shouldn't bother with those details ;)
