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 presets - Quantum 5.0 update



Hi guys,

at first, I thought that no update was necessary for Quantum 4.00 firmware (and now 5.00), but I had only checked my go-to live presets. As I'm away from work for a few weeks, I decided to check all the presets and noticed that at least the relative levels needed some update, and specially for the 5 scenes presets (the 1st scene was too loud in most cases). The presets from the 5 scenes pack weren't affected, only those from the full pack, I don't know why

Anyway, even if we're beyond the six months of free updates now, I just fixed this and uploaded the updated versions to Dropbox (if you lost the link, email me and specify which email you used for Paypal). These are updated presets for my banks A and B only : 256 presets in four versions (MKI free cabs, MKI commercial cabs, XL free cabs, XL commercial cabs). Those who bought the pack through the e-Junkie platform can download the files again, I updated them too.

Soon I will replace the existing package, based on the first one but starting at Quantum 5.00 firmware, with updated presets, and a bunch of new presets too - including many more "atmosynth" like presets, with different chord changes, available in both standard tuning and the Eb tuning which I use ; and new presets with the latest additions in amp models. Probably, this time the free update will be for one year

Axe-Fx/AX8 Quantum 4.0 update

If you use my 3.0 presets for Axe-Fx II (MKI/XL) and AX8, I just added a few new lead presets, made with Quantum 4.0 :



They all use the same IR and my favorite amp models for high gain but expressive lead playing. I started from existing presets from my pack ( http://axefremen.blogspot.com/2016/02/fremen-quantum-20-presets.html ) and tweaked them a little.
This is a free update for those who bought the pack, it's in the Dropbox folder. Those who bought this pack through E-Junkie, I also updated the file which you can re-download from them.
I made this update available for AX8 users too, same thing, the update is in Dropbox, or you can download again from E-Junkie. If you can't just send me an email and specify which email you used for the Paypal transaction.

And in case you missed this video, here I'm having fun with the tape delay block :

Helix - big pack update : Pink Floyd presets

Here's a free update for owners of the big pack. This is mostly for Pink Floyd songs. The old versions (9 presets) are still here, but now there's a new folder with with the new versions (20 presets), including 11 new ones, all Variax compatible. Also included is my Variax bundle, which is quite customized (I tweaked many things and didn't keep all the models in the same spots etc). There's also two new IRs, one of which I use to improve the sound of the Variax acoustic models.

Also included is a preset where I change the delay time in the tape delay block with snapshots. To be played with a drum loop with a tempo of 120.

The file in e-junkie servers has been updated, so all you need to do is to download it again. If you didn't keep the mail, send me a message on my email (not on youtube !), specifying why email you used for Paypal when you bought the big pack, and I'll send you the new files.

Helix presets starter pack

Here's my "Presets starter pack" for the Helix 2.01 firmware, which contains 12 presets + 9 user IRs. I made this one after receiving many requests for a smaller and cheaper pack. Here, there is one preset for each of the type of tones that I use - there's one acoustic simulation, one eighties-like glassy clean, one Voxy crunch, one British crunch, one blues-rock lead, one metal rhythm, one metal lead etc...



These presets are similar (but not duplicates - they're brand new, and also uses more effects blocks) to those from my "Big pack". Of course the "Big pack" is of better value, at 49 $ for 175 presets, and it also includes more user IRs (25)...

Note that the general volume of my presets is intended to be on par with the stock presets, or a little quieter. I wanted to avoid the risks of digital clipping, which I hear on many presets I downloaded from Custom Tone.

Those presets have been tweaked with my user IRs, there's no way they would sound like intended if you don't load them. All my IRs are custom creations made with various free sources, or no source at all, and various techniques like tone matching.

Of course, you can try to swap them with your favorite third party cabs, this will probably work if you choose similar cabs (like, a V30 4x12 IR instead of my HG (high gain) cabs, G12M and the like instead of my Marshall cabs etc… Experiment !)

To make things simpler for most Helix users, I didn't put my user IRs at the beginning of the cab bank, but from 074 to 091.

The acoustic sim IR provided here is quieter than the others, it's its nature, and I boosted the level from the IR block accordingly. Be careful if you try other IRs with the "Acoustic Sim 4" preset, lower the IR block volume first !

Price for this pack is 15 $

One song, three modellers and videos

I covered Prince's "Purple rain" with the Line6 Helix. As I recorded DI tracks too, I thought it would be fun to reamp them through the Axe-Fx II XL+ (with Quantum 4.0 firmware) and with the Atomic AmpliFire too. So here's the three versions : same solos, (not so) different sounds. The video editing is different in each version too

Helix version :



Axe-Fx II version :



Amplifire version :



all versions uses presets from my commercial packs

AmpliFire acoustic simulation pack

A while ago, I made an acoustic simulation pack for the Axe-fx II/AX8, and another for the Line 6 Helix... here's one for the Atomic AmpliFire.

I didn't make a video demo for the AmpliFire version, but the sound is the same that for the others, which you can see/hear on those videos :





The idea behind this preset collection was to use as many different electric guitars/pickups as possible and make tonematch presets for each of them. So if you have an Ibanez with Bare Knuckle or EMG or DiMarzio pickups, or a Fender Stratocaster, or a Gibson Les Paul, the corresponding presets should work to give it a convincing acoustic simulation sound. Each preset uses its own IR .

I used my Yamaha acoustic guitar sound as a base, and made tonematches for the following electric guitars :

- Ibanez RG 520 QS with Bare Knuckle Holydiver (bridge) and Emerald (neck) pickups (5 presets)
- Variax JTV 89 with DiMarzio Norton and LiquiFire magnetic pickups (5 presets)
- Fender Stratocaster USA with Suhr pickups (5 presets)
- Schecter Damien Platinium FR with EMG pickups (3 presets)
- Ibanez RGIR20FE with EMG pickups (3 presets)
- JTV89 Variax models of acoustic guitar (1 preset), Telecaster (3 presets), Les Paul (3 presets) and Fender Stratocaster (4 presets)
- Gibson les Paul Standard with Burstbucker pickups (with split coil) (5 presets)
- Gibson SG 50th anniversary with Gibson 498T (bridge) and 490R (neck) pickups
- Ibanez J Custom RG8540ZD with Seymour Duncan pickups

Of course you can fine-tune the presets using the Graphic EQ, or change the effects settings (compression, reverb) as you wish.

The price for this pack is 10 $

Some Helix demos

Here's the demo I promised for my big Helix presets pack :



I did another demo, a shorter one. This one is from a tweaking session 12 days ago, I was mostly adding a volume block and tweaking the delay/reverb in all presets - but I left out the tweaking parts, there's just some noodling on different tones here



The presets are available here :
