This site is for exchanging patches as sysex-files and other important info for the Peavey TubeFex, TransTubeFex and TransFexPro.

Site created by Silvan Thiele.
Maintained by John Fera - a digital design engineer at Peavey.

09/05/04 - fixed or removed broken links (including demise of Mark Kata's ProFex page - sniff). Started storing TFX4Win again (more space!) 

Quick Links:
Patch Library (below)

Motorpot page

Version 2.0: Addendum, Ordering, PFC10

The patches are collected from the tubefex mailing-list at Feel free to join us there.
Just click on the links to download a file (zip-format). The sysex-files can be loaded from the tubefex to a PC with any program which can handle midi-files, e.g. the tool MDF.

To convert patches to ASCII-text files use the tool from Robert, TFX4Win is for windows platforms and works great! (many thanks to Robert).

Here are three instructions how to load patches into the TF, one short from Anthony (Peavey), one technical from Robert and one simple but detailed from Greg.

You can download two instructions how to setup the mixing-scale parameters for the cc-pedal in the global settings area (v1.5 and below), one from Silvan Thiele and another from John Fera. There are two methods from Anthony (Peavey) how to bypass/control single effects in a patch.

To check the firmware version in your unit: power off, press and hold the DOWN and LEFT arrow buttons, power on while holding the buttons. There is the new v2.0 available from now on, you can order here. All the new features and parameters .

Maybe you have a chatter problem with the motor pot? This happens on an update from v1.1/1.2 to v2.0. Here is how to fix this problem, selected from the mailing-list and from Ray (thanks). See JF's motorpot page, too.

How to adjust your TF with the compressor in front, from Blue Mesa. How to mic your amp the best way, also from Blue Mesa. How does a dummy load works, from Dutch. How to work with cakewalk and midi data sysex, from Eric.

Here you can get all the initial presets from the different ROM versions. Don't forget to make a backup of your own presets before!
version 1.1 from Greg
version 1.2 from Jure
version 1.5 from John Fera
version 1.5 (only names)
version 2.0 from John Fera (Peavey) - many thanks!
version 2.0 (only names) from Rich 

This is a list of the patches on the Peavey Artist Preset Card.

Peavey offered a patch from Jeff Peterson, but warning! The patch overwrites over hundrets of your presets, no time to choose where you can locate these patches. So here is also a selected version of the 30 best of them in single patches (thanks Greg).
- all patches from Jeff Peterson
- the 30 selected

Enjoy it and send us patches.
