AX8 – Metal & Brit pack

Metal & Brit

Price: 30 Euros

This is my metal/hard rock pack for the Fractal Audio AX8, with Quantum firmware 7.02 (older firmware not supported). There’s 128 presets here, for rhythm and lead playing, for live and for recording. These presets 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).

These presets uses 52 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). A few are my personal mixes of cabs from, who gave me permission to share them with my presets. Check their cabs here :

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.


Installation procedure for presets :

My presets comes in banks of 8, which you can send where you want in your AX8. Backup your own presets first ! And send them to empty spots or over presets you don’t want to keep.

Installation procedure for cabs :

This video was made with an Axe-Fx but the procedure is the same with the AX8. You need to drag & drop each cab to its correct spot, according to its filename (Cab 001 goes to user spot 001, etc.)

Custom harmonizer settings (for Eb tuning)

Black Star” preset uses the Custom scale 12 (in GLOBAL/Scales) :

3, 3, 4, 3, 4, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 3, 3

Have fun !
