    X-LOAD IR preset

    The X-LOAD Reactive Load is a relatively unsung champion in my studio. It's a simple device (to look at) but it does an amazing 'middle-man' between any given tube amp and my Axe-FX III, which hosts the IRs and effects. This preset is put together for my own purposes, but if you have an X-LOAD...

    StratArena - preset/demo

    This started life as yet another Gilmour-esque type of thing but quickly grew into something a little larger in terms of effects and drives, etc. So, here for your late weekend delectation is my 'StratArena' for your enjoyment and general Stratty indulgence...

    Twilight Stereo - Based on Magnatone Twilighter Stereo Stereo Pitch Shifting Vibrato - free preset

    To play that amp is to love it. I'm fortunate to have one. After reading a thread over on the 'recording' forum, I thought it might be fun to have a crack at the Stereo Pitch Shifting Vibrato effect that I love so much and that is found on the top-tier Magnatone amps. This preset is not 100%...

    Starwards IV. Ambient preset.

    I said I wasn't going to make a video for this one, but I'm hopeless. Glad I did, though, as it has already prompted some people to question the capabilities of their traditional pedalboards. https://axechange.fractalaudio.com/detail.php?preset=8788

    James & Stephen. A preset/video demo based on SRV and Hendrix tones.

    A Gig-Rig preset

    An all-rounder designed specifically for Teles and Strats and the needs I have on stage with my band. No video for this one, but you'll get the idea; it covers a lot of ground in one preset.

    Late at night, half cut, he decides it would be a good idea to jam his Normandy Alumicaster into a Muff and Silverface Twin (Q1.02) to see what transpires. Stupidly, following his indulgent sonic rant, he turns off the cameras, Pro Tools and Axe-FX II without saving the preset. Oops. Oh well...next.
