Swap in a USA SUB BLUES amp into the amp block of Preset 15: Recto Vintage (with factory cab 43) and play some single coil blues. Enjoy!
You are welcome - the Mesa USA Sub Blues really is a great amp sim that matches very very well with the factory IR# 43: 4x12 Recto V30 (RW) - Cliff really did a great job with this one (of course)! :encouragement:Thanks for the tip!
have you tried turning on the noise gate?
UPDATE: FW 12b04 has removed a lot of the hiss and really made this preset/amp sim come alive. Thanks you Simeon for the noise gate suggestions and Cliff, well, for everything! :encouragement:Ahhh ... guidance at last! Will do. Thanks Simeon - I'll keep you posted.
EDIT: Thanks Simeon - I followed your steps above and dialed something in I can live with. Once I dialed it in I also turned the sag down and bumped up the B+ time constant. 'll keep tweaking over the weekend but, man, its a very dynamic preset, I can pick and or finger strum lightly and get that chime and then dig in just a little more and maybe bump up the guitar volume slightly and I am off to the races with solid sustain. Just great.
Got to figure out the amp's speaker parameter edits next that will complement the FAS 43 cab I am using (a RW IR).
Any other advanced parameter edit suggestions - I can really learn a lot through this exercise.. Thanks again Simeon.
:LOL will do Sim! Any additional speaker parameters to tweak? As much as I love factory 43 cab I'll need to audition the OH open backs next and use Cab Lab to mix in the back (aka, rear) of the cab. I really like Scott's mix of the Alnico Silver but I want to check out everything.lol! sounds like you're having fun, bro!
another parameter you might like to have a look at is the transformer match. it's very powerful....so give a nudge to the right or the left and see what you think. to the right is a touch more compressed...to the left is more "open"
