I am struggling to get the sound (growl, very rich harmonics) which can be heard in this clip at 3:45

Does anyone know, in order to accurately recreate the pull gain on each channel what you would need to raise the input drive to? I thought I saw it mention by @FractalAudio in another thread but I cannot locate it. I know I can use my ears, but I am curious what would accurately recreate what the actual amp does.

NOTE: To emulate the “Shred” mode turn the High Treble control to approximately 3-4 dB (or adjust to taste, you are not limited by a single switch).

I think for pull gain you go to the ideal page and increase the Input Drive by 1 or 1.5, Shred Mode is different.

What’s the difference between the real amp pot tapers and the axe? Has anyone found equivalent settings.

Thanks all..great insight into JP. How expensive and difficult it used to be to tone chase but now the Axe gets us closer to analyzing the sound of great guitar players so easily.

So the JP2-C has two seperate EQ's so you can have different EQ profiles for different channels, but looking at those instagram posts he sets them pretty much identically anyway?

look closer: the second one usually doesn't cut the mids as much and boosting the 240 a tad more to thicken up the tone. One mm can be a lot on those faders...

That's it, I feel it's way far from there...
I don't think I'm going to buy a Majesty, I just don't like John's latest incarnation of his sound, even live it goes, as far as my tastes, way better with a less wet sound for rhythm.
I guess I have to spend more time on EQ and getting to understand better how the amps behave...
I was able to get way closer on firmware 18.00 or so in Axe FX 2, then it changed and it wasn't nice/usable to me anymore... but I'm always trying to keep in mind that Mesas amps are to be learned and micro variatios in touching the pots usually mean a big change in sound.

I feel way more consistency with Peavey 5150, EVH III and now the new Skull Crusher (which with a TS09 in front leads me to very fluid leads, nicier than my attempt to set up a Petrucci sound without overdrive)
