    Bank of Fender

    one whole bank filled with presets using Fender sims. I made 99% of these presets from scratch, some were posted here already, some were not. This bank includes sounds of 'raw' amp->cab setups, as well as drive pedal emulations and not-so-subtle fx. I'd say it has an overall vintage-y vibe to...
