    RR JP2C - Yep... another Petrucci inspired preset!

    Hi all! I just created a simple JP2C preset and for the sake of sharing... here we are! Some parts are created following the hints from the video series MESA/Boogie JP-2C – John Petrucci Ch. 1/2/3 (available on YouTube) but then adjusted to taste. As I stated it's a really simple preset that...

    Dream Theater - "Strange Deja Vu" Tone Match

I found online some isolated guitars from the album and so I got to work, for those wishing to try the patch the download link is in the video description! let me know about it!

    My favorite Petrucci tones with JP2C

    Check out this preset! I used a tone match block that was uploaded by another user (which was made for a different amp I think), and I have done a lot of tweaking. I am using a PRS 7SE with Illuminators and I'm going direct into a pair of Xitones powered by the Matrix GT1000FX...

    Dream Theater - Our New World Intro

    Everything started from this thread. I ended up using both IRs, the Petrucci V30 Mix and the other I think is from OH, not ML, double tracking the guitars and panning them stereo. Drum and bass are midi. Not perfect but hope you guys enjoy it anyway.

    Mesa Mark IV - Pull me under - Cover

    Hello fellow Axers! It has been the pleasure of my life :rolleyes: to record these guitar parts over this great backing track. First I have to say that I’m more than impressed of the simulations Cliff made possible within this Axe-FX II XL+. These amp sims are mind blowing :screamcat:. All...

    Petrucci V30 Mix-like IRs

    I tried many Mesa cab IRs, from the stock library, the free ones from ML, some stuff from Ownhammer, etc. but no one match Petrucci's tone like the Petrucci V30 Mix. Can you tell me what's the closest UltraRes IR (or a combination of two) to the Petrucci V30 Mix? Thanks in advance.

    Dream Theater - Caught in a Web | Video Cover (New Guitar Day!) (Cab Pack 13)

    Hey guys, I recently got this beast and I needed to do a video with it :cool: I'm running a Dual Amp configuration, with a Dual Recto/L and a Mark IIC+/R with 2 IRs from Cab Pack 13: SM57- MD421 02 and SM57- R121 03 (I think......but it works best with just the 1st IR on both sides) I had to...

    Petrucci chorus setting

    Hey forum, Just upgraded from the Axe Standard to an AX8 and...Woah! What an upgrade. I loved the Standard but this thing is a whole different bundle of perfection. Anyways, I posted a thread a long time ago looking for good settings for the lush, broad chorus Petrucci uses for his big...

    Free John Petrucci Presets for Axe-Fx II and AX8

    Hey girls and dudes! I got some feedback that the Preset-Cab Bundles I created for the UltraRes 2.0 version of Cab Pack 7 didn't load on the AX8 so I decided I'd share all those presets for free. Obviously you need the pack for the IR's but other than that you should be good to go with these...

    My first blast beats: Mesa IIC+ Gothic Chaos (Cab Pack 7)

    Although it's not the Cab Pack that gets used much these days I always love going back to the pack that started it all for me Cab Pack 7: CK's USA Traditional 4x12 UltraRes. I used the CK CHAOTIC ARRANGEMENTS IR for this song and of course Cab Pack 11 for bass as I always do. :) For those who...

    John Petrucci fans pay attention!

    All Cab Packs in the Fractal Audio Systems Cab Pack Store have now been converted to UltraRes 2. As some of you may remember Cab Pack 7 is based on the Mesa™ 4x12 Recto® Traditional Straight Cab which is used by many people including John Petrucci. Back when that Cab Pack came out there were no...

    New Mesa Boogie John Petrucci JP-2C amplifier!

    Read about it in here: http://www.mesaboogie.com/amplifiers/electric/mark-series/jp2c/index.html So apparently it's all about IIC+ sounds. IIC+ clean and two IIC+ lead channels with their own GEQs.
