    Help needed ID'ing Dr Z amp.

    Wish Bass Mode for Pitch Block

    Parallel to my main guitar tone, I've been running a Pitch Block set to an octave lower with Virtual Capo into a Drive Block set to a Darkglsss, and that's it. Sounds phenomenal. But curious if there's some sort of math that can be done with the pitch detection that can only present the...

    Does the Axe FX have the tools available to replicate this tone?

    X-Over'd Reverb AITR tone.

    Building off my last preset I shared, I dialed up a dual reverb (one for the lowend, one for the highend) that sounds pretty great through my QSC 12s and sub FRFR setup and also my studio monitors ( Adam A7X) Any thoughts on it would be appreciated. Enjoy!

    Amp + Cab block not really necessary for a good tone?

    Simple tip for Recto tones

    For some gnarly tones, lower the master volume to the 0.50-0.90 range. This is plennnnty loud enough on the real amp, and more akin to what people are "used" to hearing when playing one. YMMV.
