    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...

    Hey everyone, I hope you're all doing well. This is my first new noise of 2019. Just playing around with something new from ML Sound Lab paired with the Friedman 2018 amp model in the XL+. UPDATE : Now that Mikko has released the new IR collection I can let you know I used the ML Sound Lab...

    Quick demo with Fryette, Friedman, Bassman, Vox and ML Sound Lab tones.

    With Mikko of ML Sound Lab announcing his new Cab Pack competition I figured I'd post a demo of something I was working on recently. As I'm an ML Beta tester I'm not entering the comp, but it was a good excuse to post something from a couple of months back as a break from working on the album I...

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

    This is a short idea I used to test a couple of variations within a new preset I put together. I used the Cameron CCV 1A amp model with the Pi Fuzz Op-Amp and a Micro boost into a 50/50 blend of ML Zilla All Mix and ML Brit PR75 SM57-M160 01 (CP20). I did two versions of the signal chain, I'd...

    Pi Fuzz & JTM45 dirt - preset included (Muffy Christmas)

    After seeing a Youtube video of Billy Corgan talking about and playing with the reissue Big Muff Op-Amp pedal I thought I'd have a go at getting a Big Muff tone that works for me in the AxeFXII XL+. While I'm not the biggest Smashing Pumpkins fan I do love the tone of Siamese Dream. This is not...

    Tone Test - "ML - Mikko N' Fortus - Impulses for Destruction"

    Here's a little Gunners(ish) rock song to check out the new "ML - Mikko N' Fortus - Impulses for Destruction" cab pack from ML Sound Lab. It's just a quick and rough recording to hear how it sounds. The Soundcloud upload sounds a bit crappy for some reason. Oh well. I used the Friedman HBE and...

    New guitar - Gretsch Electromatic Pro Jet with Fryette, Friedman, Vox, ML USA Djent & Zilla cabs

    Hi everyone. It's been a while, I hope you're all well. I decided to treat myself to a Gretsch as I've always loved their guitars. I went for their more affordable Electromatic range and I'm really impressed with it. I actually got it as a little nod to Chris Cornell, he was rocking mostly...

    New ML USA Djent cab pack - short rock/metal piece for a horror film (no djenting though, sorry)

    Hi guys and girls. It's been a while, got a few projects on the go. I've been working on some short musical pieces for an upcoming film and used the project as an opportunity to test out the new USA Djent Cab Pack from ML Sound Lab. This is more of a heavy rock/metal project and I think this...

    Into The Unseen - electro heavy rock with a bit of industrial maybe?

    This song was inspired by an AxeFX preset shared online by someone that I thought was pretty cool. It wasn't until after I had finished it and showed a few people that I was told the effect is a replication of an effect used on a Muse song. It's a bit of a shame, I've never heard the song before...

    P90 loaded Yamaha Troy Van Leeuwen sig with the 65 Bassguy and ML USA Combo IRs - PRESET ADDED

    I dusted off my Yamaha SA503TVL Troy Van Leeuwen signature guitar loaded with P90s for the first time in ages. I forgot how much I love this guitar. This is something I came up with while playing around with some Fender amp models in the AxeFXII XL+ and the new USA Combo cab pack from ML Sound...

    Heavy Rock blind tone comparison - pre-production tone test UPDATE: results and presets added

    Hi guys and girls. This is a tone test I did to determine which amp presets to use on the recording project I've got underway. I'll have an album or a couple of EPs out this year. I didn't intend to post this as it was just a decision making tool for my process, but I thought it might be...

    "As The Dust Settles" - Fender Tweed Deluxe with ML Tweed IRs

    Came up with something different for me while trying out the new Fender Tweed Deluxe IRs from ML Sound Lab. I've never really used the Fender amps before, it's interesting to see how different ideas come from trying different gear. This idea came together better than I expected, I might keep it...

    Need help with recording with AxeFXII XL+ as interface and monitoring issues

    Hi everyone. I recently had my MacBook Pro die on me and ended up having to replace the hard drive and now I'm running into a few issues that need problem solving. Issue 1: The main one is recording into Cubase 6 using the AxeFXII XL+ as my interface. I've recorded every one of the clips I've...

    The Low Down - Fender Baritone Jag high gain aggressive rock in Drop A. (New ML USA Bass pack used)

    Guitars are back after my experiments with bass only heavy rock (more of those to come). This is a new song idea on my Fender Jag Baritone Special HH in Drop A tuning. Guitars tracked with a Brit 800 and a Corncob M50 through ML Bulb Zilla cabs. Bass is my G&L Tribute L-2500 with the Citrus...

    Where Devils Dare - Bass Only heavy rock song #3, ML USA Bass & Zilla content

    This is "Bass Only" heavy rock song number 3. I was going to just do three of these but I keep coming up with more ideas in this format, so there may be more in the future. This one has a more eerie feel and the "lead bass" aka "guitar" tracks retain more of a bass-like character for the most...

    Low tuned heavy fuzz rock - Citrus Bass + ML USA Bass, Brit Pre/Fryette hybrid + ML Zilla

    This is a test of my "Super Fuzz" preset which I've adapted to my current go to IRs to see how it sits in the mix. I still need to write another section to slot in before the ending, so this isn't a finished piece yet. More of a test run. The guitars are a Brit Pre with a Fryette tonestack...

    "No guitar hard rock" song #2 - Q4 ML USA Bass and Zilla + Brit 800, Corncob & Plexi 50W Hi 1

    Here's my second "no guitar hard rock" song. It's my G&L Tribute Series L-2500 5 string bass rocking the AxeFXII XL+ updated to Quantum 4.00 and not guitars at all. The bass track was done using the Citrus Bass 200 paired with the new USA Bass cab pack from ML Sound Lab based (pun not...

    Moody high gain song with no guitars, all bass and drums. ML USA Bass cab pack (coming soon)

    Challenge: make a hard rocking high gain song with no guitars, only bass and drums. This was an experiment that I didn't think would turn out this well, but I was pleasantly surprised. Bass tracks are done with the Citrus Bass 200 and ML Sound Lab USA Bass IRs that are coming out soon. This...

    Baritone Post Rock - Plexi 50W, Brit 800, Zilla and new ML Bass cab pack in Drop A

    While making presets for my new baritone I thought I'd go through the factory presets and swap the cabs out for the my favourite Zilla IRs out of curiosity to see if I'd luck upon a winning combination. I came across factory preset 271 "Detune Plexi" which sounded awesome with the low tuning...

    Baritone Crunchies - Recto 1 Red, Brit 800 and ML Zilla cabs. Presets included.

    I was hoping to post a new song tomorrow that just needs the bass track re-recorded and a final mix but I ripped my index finger open at work today, so I thought I'd post this quick tone test that I did a couple of days ago. I'm testing a few amp combination for various tones and styles for my...

    ML Bulb Zilla preview - high gain, medium gain and clean examples using multiple IRs - PRESETS ADDED

    Howdy. I was doing some IR auditions for an upcoming recording session and thought I could do a shorter version for anyone who is interested in the ML Sound Lab Zilla cab pack and wanted to hear some more examples of what you can expect. I have done three clips to cover a variety of...

    Corncob M50 Zilla rocker

    This is a recording I did back in the early beta of the upcoming Zilla pack from ML Soundlab. My man Darko Dimovski had some fun remixing it so I thought I'd post the original. This is the Corncob M50 with a number of single mic IRs utilising V30 and Creamback H75 speakers and SM57 mics...

    Drop A song - ML Cab Pack 24 Dizzy with Brit Pre/Fryette hybrid and FAS Modern II

    I wrote this song a while back as part of an audition for a band playing in Drop A. I revisited the material and I really like the tuning now, so I might work the songs I did into an EP or something. For this I used my Super Fuzz preset which is a Brit Pre with a Fryette tonestack and a Bender...

    XL+ output 2 no sound.

    Hi guys. This might be something really simple, but I'm not sure if I have a setting wrong somewhere. I just got my Matrix amp and cab setup together and tried to use output 2 on the back of my XL+ for the first time but there is no audio at all. Output 1 has always been fine, now I need output...

    UPDATED VERSION Ambient groove electro with Vox guitar tones

    (EDIT: This is an updated version of Inverted Gaze with the bulid up section before the ending re-worked) I'm not really sure how to describe this one but I like it. It's a different sound for me. I guess it's pretty chill but a bit moody and reflective. Started playing around with EZDrummer2...

    Friedman HBE & BE both voicings on hard rocker with Cab Pack 20

    Trying out the new voicing options on the HBE and BE amps. HBE for main rhythms with the same settings except V1 on the left side and V2 on the right. Same deal with the BE V1 and V2 when the quad tracking kicks in. No drive blocks, just amp and cab with a noise gate in front. Got to play with...

    ML Cab Pack 23 Citrus 2x12 - heavy fuzz rock/almost industrial

    With the release of Cab Pack 23 I thought I'd tweak the mix of this recording and try some post production/mastering. I don't have any background in this area, so I just played around a bit to see what I could come up with. Got some new toys to play with here. The Electronic EZX for EZDrummer...

    Heavy fuzz rock - Brit Pre-Fryette Frankenstein amp + ML Pack 20 (preset added)

    Outward Implosion - heavy rock, Corncob M50 & ML Brit Collection (preset included)

    Just trying out a few different amp and cab combinations before recording an EP and this pairing was really fun. I've always liked the Corncob M50 but never quite dialed it in right in the past. I tried it with the PR75 and PR55 cabs in Cab Pack 20 and I'm pretty happy with it this time around...

    Strained Reflection - Brit 800/Brit 800 Mod with Cab Pack 20 (preset included)

    I was playing around with some Marshall style amps and came across a tone that inspired a piece of music. It's not my usual thing but that's kind of why I like how this one turned out. I used the Brit 800 in the left and Brit 800 Mod in the right side of the mix. The IR is ML Brit PR75...

    Trying out a bit of rock with ML Cab Pack 20 + Brit Pre

    Had a crack at something a little more rock than I usually do. Its the Brit Pre with Cab Pack 20 again but I went for less gain and more mids this time. This is the PR75 cab (I love this cab so much). Rhythms tracked with SM57-M160 01 and melodies with SM57-R121 01.

I was playing around with Cab Pack 7 which Mikko hooked me up with as a prize from the Cab Pack competition run recently and I thought I'd knock out a new song with it.
