    Synth Question

    I'll give that a try, in fact I did try something similar. It's like adding distortion to anything, whether it be voice, bass, guitar, synth. There was a preset in the Ultra that was a synth, I forget if it had distortion on it but when I added distortion I could get the exact tone of Deep...

    Need Speaker recommendations for FX III with Fryette 2/50/2 Stereo Power Amp
