    Steve Lukather Soldano X88R preset

    Yeah, he switched from the XTC to the Helios a while back. I don't think he switches channels on that thing at all? With the XTC, he did switch to the clean channel occasionally.

    Steve Lukather Soldano X88R preset

    You mean the gear and sound from around that era? Not really. I know he pretty much only used the blue channel, and his settings are available online (which are really weird). I would assume he is using Chinese V30s in his Bogner cabs (since they're post 2001-2003). So the Friedman cab from YA...

    Wish More Boost types @ "Amp - Preamp - Input Boost"

    If you are ever using the neutral boost and don't need to switch it on/off, I would just use the input trim. Saves a bit of CPU. (Random tip, I know).

    Wish More Boost types @ "Amp - Preamp - Input Boost"

    Correctly. You can make your own inside the amp block. Use the input EQ to set the flavour, and then the amount with input trim. Granted, you can't turn it off via midi, but it's a useful feature nonetheless. Sorta. It's just the frequency curve. It doesn't take into account that some pedals...

    Wish Explanation of the differences between the controls of the real amps and their modeled counterparts

    Yeah, but from what I recall, the tapers are quite bad on the amps. That's also the reason for not doing a 1 to 1 on the amp models. Nothing happens in the middle, and then there's a huge jump when nearing the top or bottom on the amp sliders. The master volume tapers are for the most part...

    Wish Explanation of the differences between the controls of the real amps and their modeled counterparts

    The wiki doesn't always remove old quotes, even when they don't apply anymore. There's a lot of stuff on there that's inaccurate. The mark EQ sliders are one of the few things that have different tapers.
  12. G

    Not true. Most of all amps and knobs work as the real amp. The wiki is run by users, and might not be accurate or up to date.

    There is no such pedal. Did you mean Captain Coconut? Quite rare 3 in 1 pedal. I think when doing distortion or fuzz pedals, you really need to have the pedal in person. Modulation and delay are another story, those can be measured (especially pitch, chorus and delay). Flangers and phasers are...

    The H949 didn't offer modulation on the micropitch, did it? And I phrased it like a question because I can't find any mention of it in the manual, or online. I'm of course open to being proved wrong. Some of the press material mentions sideband modulation, but that's a different thing that...

    Yeah, I didn't emulate that. Leon didn't dig it, and I consider it tone suck. Hence, why I always emulate the difference between dry and wet, and not dry + wet. I'm not yek, but the CE-1 was meant to be the chorus from JC-120 in a pedal (released 1 year after the amps). But then again, the...

    Not really discrepancies as such regarding the 1210. Just that the some values don't work due him copying them directly from my chorus blocks. I don't want a gold sticker, I just want them to be right, since I spent many hours making it.
