    Why do downloaded user presets sound different on my set-up?

    Another mans blanket is another mans perfect preset...but this preset truly is guitar dependant! All I did was to turn the master down to 3 and turn the level up to -15 to compensate lost volume. I am using a Fender Strat 62 reissue MIJ with Kinman Hx Traditional Mk-III K9 pickups. I am using...

    FX Loop - What have I done wrong???

    Thx for reply Chris! Strange thing is when I reset while its in bypass mode it then goes silent again but if I un-bypass then bypass again I can hear a signal.
  17. gabbenante

    FX Loop - What have I done wrong???

    I don't know how it happened or what I may have done, but the FX Loop block only lets a signal through when its bypassed? Example for me is patch "OUT1->FOH OUT2->CAB" (which has the FX Loop in between the Reverb and Cab blocks) I cant hear any sound unless I bypass the FX Loop which normally I...

    question about blending two amps

    Here is what I do (not a pro player...) I use 2 paths which I basically set up where the 1st patch is on set up and the second patch is one that gets added/blended. This is a Clean Double Verb by itself and then the ODS adds drive but the Double Verb stays on so its more texture. you blend and...

    Thx. My pickups must be hotter (Samarium Cobalt Noiseless SC) or I just bang on the strings too hard :) I just went to the output tab to adjust the volume down for 4 and 5 and a little up on 1. Very sweet preset!!! This will be great for a standard template for me. Thanks for sharing Greg
  51. gabbenante

    The Toruk Has landed!

    Hi LVC, Regarding your scene 4 and 5 in your Twin Tweed patch (non cab sim)... This being said, when you actually do turn up your vol and tone all the way, do you see output 1 clipping on the Fractal when you hit the strings relatively hard? Thanks Greg

    Dimarzio Evolution DP159 or Fred DP153 + Axe FX II anyone?

    My current favorite to play at this time is an RG with basswood body with Tone Zone in the bridge, Fender Vintage Noiseless middle, PAF Joe neck. I originally tried an Evo in the bridge, but as Clarky said very bright. The final setup I ended up with is very balanced and versatile.
