    Tom Morello inspired tone/song - ML Zila 4x12 - 5153 - Gretsch Electromatic Pro Jet

    You're right, very different vocal styles for sure. An Audioslave tribute band would be cool, tough gig to sing Chris' stuff but if your guy can do it that will be pretty awesome to play. Yeah, I'm never fussed about matching tones because I play differently to the artist anyway. So I always...

    Tom Morello inspired tone/song - ML Zila 4x12 - 5153 - Gretsch Electromatic Pro Jet

    Thanks. Yeah I'm a massive Soundgarden and Chris Cornell fan, I like both Rage and Audioslave but gravitate more to Audioslave because Chris was just so amazing. This was a hypothetical "if I joined Audioslave what song would I write first" idea. I love learning people's approach to...

    Evolve - HBE C45 & Recto1 Red with ML Mars PR-H75

    I thought so, but figured I'd play along haha. It's a really well balanced cab, that Mix A IR is my #1 now. Also check out the single mic PR-H75 57 A. I always gravitate towards mix IRs and never really use single mic captures, but that one is really good.

    Thanks Tony. Was sitting on the couch when the 6/4 drum beat popped into my head, so I figured I better get it down before I forgot it. Good timing as I was about to try the new cab pack and needed a new idea to track.

    Tom Morello inspired tone/song - ML Zila 4x12 - 5153 - Gretsch Electromatic Pro Jet

    This is my attempt at a Tom Morello inspired song after watching a rig rundown of his. I'm running a Gretsch Pro Jet through a 5153 50W Blue and the ML Sound Lab Zila 4x12 cab pack. The main rhythm tracks are the neck pickup through the Guerrilla IR and another pair of lifter guitars in places...

    This is pretty cool, I love Ken Andrews and I've always been a bit obsessed with his guitar tones across all his projects. I might have to check this pack out. I don't suppose you know what amp models he is using? Congrats on the pack, must be pretty top notch if Jim and Ken like it.

    That might be a problem. I have the be very careful listening to Helmet in the car, it's very easy to push the accelerator listening to Meantime. Good tunes can be a driving risk.

    More fuzz rock - Cameron Big Muff Micro Boost stuffs - Preset included

    Cheers Judd. Starting to think the two main guitars in version 1 and the two main guitars in version 2 might sound good together. The best of both, then it would be bright on top with the warmer low end underneath. I'm going to give that a try actually.

I did two versions of the signal chain, I'd...

    The presets included in the pack are brighter than I usually use but seem to work in a mix really well if you are gunning for the GN'R sound (pun intended).

    Yeah, the pronounced mids seem to have softened the edges but with lots of body making it feel like a rounder tone if that makes sense. Then adding the octave up harmony brings back a bit of the high end chaos but in controlled way. That comes in handy to lift the chorus and the end section...
