    This is better . . . still not perfect on the amp tone but the flange and chorus are much improved. Scene 1 is clean and scene 2 is dirty. It needs a clean mix to be really right I think . . . I'll work on that later as well.

    This is set up for my Wolfgang which is a fairly dark guitar btw - with my Strat with EMG S's I have to rein in the highs and add some lows.

    I'll try to record a clip later if I get time . . .

    EDITED - added clean mix

    Improved flanger asymmetric sweep and chorus delay timing. Plus I've improved the background delays a bit for more clarity. It's all a bit clearer and more "PCM80ish" now. Once again - this is built for my Wolfgang which is a bit dark. Cut highs and boost low mids if your guitar is brighter.

    This is becoming a really phenomenal patch!
    Damn near all my MK I can handle, but I'm working through optimization on my end. I'll try to record a clip with my Howard Roberts Fusion soon.

    Cheers!

    RAD!
    I have a Ibanez Hd-1000 that I'd be willing to image to help with that part of the mix. It also has a big sticker on the top of it with suggested settings for effect types. I'll snap a photo of that and upload when I'm at my studio tonight.

    Started working on a Rush GUP preset since you started this thread.
    I’m basically using the template I use for all my presets. My workflow is more basic than yours.
    I attached pics of the amp, chorus, cab and delay settings.
    The Chorus is I believe from Azael's Tri Chorus preset. The first Delay is your PCM 80 Delay preset with the 2nd being an actual Delay @ 490 Ms.
    Try Scenes 1,2 & 3. Toggle between X/Y for less or more effect.

    Any chance of getting this preset exported for an AxeFX II?
    I love the tones - I miss my old rig which had a PCM 80 in it also)..

    Great articles and work on the preset, guys. Re-doubling my offer to help if needed.

    BTW: I actually bought a Lawrence L-500 from Bill back in the day. Years later, when he went bankrupt, my mom's interior design firm bought all of his CNC equipment. The programs for his guitars and pickups were still in the machines!

    Hey M@ - I'd be willing to ship the PCM to you for further analysis. PM me a shipping address and I'll get it in the mail ASAP.

    The L-500 is an awesome pickup! Did you keep the g-code for reverse engineering?
