    More "Artist Presets" ideas

    Most guitarists also play bass and I'd be interested in having guitar and bass presets. Also a separate bass preset back would be cool.

    Thanks for explaining that. I copied the method of the first preset mentioned in this thread. The Delay is in series there as well but it had a 500ms time which I reduced to 100ms. I also prefer the effect only version which is great for inspirational ambient chords. ;)

    That's what I've done as well on the III (with a Plex Delay). And you can add chorus, tremolo, reverb etc. to create the ambience. I did block the direct signal to only hear the effected level. I'll try your preset as well Yek! Would it be possible to control a volume block to "open" on input...

    The preset mentioned by Yek sounds close(r) to the Freeze where via the Reverb Hold I find it reacts different. Maybe I need to experiment some more with it.

    Interesting sustain pedal with more options then EHX Freeze. I’d prefer to have something without reverb and also where I can only hear the effected signal. https://www.gamechangeraudio.com/pluspedal/ I can’t get this behavior with the Axe Fx III. Curious if something is possible?
