AX8 – 5 scenes presets

5 scenes presets

Price: 30 Euros

This pack for the Fractal Audio AX8, with Quantum firmware 7.02 (older firmware not supported) is a collection of « 5 Scenes » presets, with not less than 88 presets, from 87 different amp models. These are for FRFR systems, not traditional guitar speakers. Updates for these presets, if necessary because of changes in the firmware, will be free for one year (until March 2018).

Each presets has 5 scenes with various amount of gain, from clean (scene 1) to high gain lead (scene 5). Some uses free cabs (which are included), most uses stock cabs.

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).

Legal stuff : this is a digital download. No refund even in case of buying by mistake. After purchase, the files will be available in the “Purchase history” section of my website

These files are in a .zip 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.
