    Van Halen - Unchained Preset (Cygnus)

    Hi all, A few people have asked for this preset so here it is. I'm using 2 stock cabs and one 3rd party, the trusty PT20 which I will include. Scene 1 is just the intro until the drums kick in (this is hard panned to the left) Scene 2 is the rest of the song.

    Van Halen - Unchained (Cygnus)

    Hi all, thought I'd give Cygnus a test drive with some Van Halen, I tried to match the panning to the record.

    Van Halen I preset

    Hi all, Here is a Van Halen 1 preset, I made it on my Axe-Fx III but converted it to the FM3, it has 8 scenes for 8 different songs. I've tried to match the recordings including the panning of the guitar and reverb. I've used a couple of stock IR's and a 3rd party one (Pete Thorn's PT20) I...

    Runnin' With The Dweezil

    https://www.dweezilzappa.com/pages/copy-of-runnin-with-the-dweezil This should be a very cool Van Halen tribute - I expect it will be very well-done by DZ. Will include some Axe-Fx III presets too.

    Tribute to Eddie Van Halen (w/ free patch)

    I think it's safe to say Eddie's passing left a void in the guitar world that will never be filled. In my opinion there's never been anyone so influential, inspiring and creative as EVH, he took what Hendrix did 10 years prior and brought it to a whole other level. The electric guitar as an...

    Van Halen - “Runnin' With The Devil” Preset

    Hi all, another VH preset, thought i'd share my Runnin' With The Devil preset, as soon as i heard this song many years ago i was hooked, what an absolute belter for an opening song on their debut album. I made this on my Axe-Fx III and converted so you'll have to see how it turns out, i've...

    Van Halen - "Panama" Preset (RIP Eddie)

    Hi all, It's a sad sad day in the guitar world so i thought i'd do this. I made this preset on my Axe-FX III and thought i'd share for you FM3 guys, i'm not sure how it will turn out but feel free to try. I used a stock cab, pic below if its not included. Enjoy guys.

    Van Halen - "Panama" Preset

    Hi all, i've been asked by so many people for this preset so here it is. It is using a stock cab. I use scene 1 in my video with chorus, scene 2 is using the pitch block instead of chorus and scene 3 i was messing around with the 100w Plexi so you can have a play and see what works for you. Enjoy.

    My take on this solo. Recorded over 40 years ago and still hard!!! EVH is the man.

    Hi all, i've noticed lots of people have been trying to re-create that VH1 tone recently and i have been on the same trail. I've been working on this preset for a few weeks now and i'm trying to get close to each track on the first album. I saw @levipeto post his preset yesterday and i must say...

    Van Halen - Eurption (Guitar Cover)

    Hey guys, found time to record one of my fav solos. I'm running direct from the Axe Fx to Logic X pro; no post processing done. I believe the patch is a Friedman BE/HBE with a TS808 in front (no drive, only level up) Delay and Reverb. The guitar is a 2011 Charvel San Dimas MIJ, with BKP...

    Best Metal/Hard Rock sounds.

    I´ve been using the original Fractal AX8 presets to record some songs. I use: - preset 3-7 (5153 Red) for my heavier sounds. I search for a sound close to Anthrax, Testament, Sepultura, Kreator; - preset 3-8 (Savageness) for hard rock. I search for a sound close to Van Halen, Satriani, early...

    Van Halen Vibes

    Hi All! Here's a little funny riff I came up with last night jamming, it's obviously highly inspired by EVH, so I also tried to improvise more - less in that manner :) Using my Axe Fx 2 and Charvel USA custom Guthrie Govan guitar, as usual :) Now, I am not sure I can share this preset if...

    Audio clip of my new 'Eruption/You Really Got Me' preset added to my site

    Here is a link to an audio clip of my new 'Eruption/You Really Got Me' preset. It's a bunch of random early EVH 'noodling' with a standard tuned EBBM Axis guitar. The 'Pitch' block is dropping it down a 1/2 step. It actually does sound better on a 1/2 step dropped tuned guitar without the...

    Eruption/You've Really Got me Now - live cover

    When the camera comes closer to the stage you can hear the sound on the recording change quite a bit, but it's still cool to see live AX8 video. I used Moke's preset found here: http://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/eruption-plexi-preset.111707/

    If you could buy one cab pack?

    What is everyone's favorite cab pack? Is there one that just stands out above the rest? My favorite Van Halen tone is probably 1984 or Van Halen II Any recommendations on cabs to achieve that? I'm also a huge Andy Timmons fan
