That would be awesome with prior talk of Devin, LM presets etc.!
Would that not be a case of doing a basic EQ in the amp eg. Bass, mids and treble?consider that many bands you see live who use an Axe direct to the board still has the FOH Engineer adjust things for the band mix. so maybe the preset is really bright, but the mixer tames it down for the mix. same thing for the studio. they could start with one thing on the Axe, but the mixdown completely changes the EQ or other aspects.
it's a great thought to have the exact presets and settings from our guitar heroes, but just like any other preset you might download, it may not translate to your setup if you don't have the same rig or band elements.
i always think preset sharing is great for effects and layout ideas, but not for tone itself. i've really never used anyone else's presets - free or purchased - that instantly worked with my setup. i've also used the exact same physical amps when i managed a music store, and i didn't sound the same. mics, recording, mixdown, etc all affects what i think the tone is vs what it actually is.
of course there are variables to this and sometimes it might sound close. but it's not always a 1 to 1 translation even with the exact preset in my experience. definitely release some and buy or download them too, but maybe don't expect the exact same tone due to so many variables.
maybe, maybe not. many FOH and Studio guys compress, EQ, band limit, etc. etc. to shape the tone for the mix. i'm just saying that the starting point on the Axe might be very far from the result we are hearing live or on record. having that starting point might not be the immediate "yeah that's it!" feeling if so.Would that not be a case of doing a basic EQ in the amp eg. Bass, mids and treble?
Just getting ready to post the link, lol. I had a feeling, haha.
