My attempt at nailing Pete Thorn's presets for the song Homage

What do you think of theese sounds?
Gear used:

Fender Strat Jeff Beck signature (lace sensors, bridge has two of them in humbucker config)
Axe FX II (obviously)
Adam A7X monitors.

Remember, the audio file shows work in progress, please don't judge my skills. I would like to improve the sounds, a more experienced user might have some good tips here.
Enjoy

Thanks for the tip. The Univibe effect is in fact the "vibe mode" inside the phaser block? Because I didn't find an effect block called Univibe.
And by the way, are you reffering only to the clean patch or all patches?

I like the sound you've got going on here very much, well done sir!

Would you consider sharing the preset? I'm quite new to Pete Thorn's work but funnily enough was e-mailing him only yesterday regarding the tones he uses on Melissa Etheridge's latest album...I'm not expecting him to send me a sysex file exactly (!) but he might give me a lead on what he puts into the signal chain which would be a great place for me to start.

I've just bought tickets to see Melissa Etheridge launch the european leg of her world tour in Dublin on Feb 14th. I'm really hoping that Pete Thorn will be there too, I'd love hear and see what this talented player does with the Axe II live.

Thank you. Of course I will share the presets, in fact I don't see the point of posting an Axe FX recording without sharing the presets.
Just thought I might improve the sounds a bit. I'm left without solutions, there is some vibe that is missing in my sounds, maybe it's just my playing or I should use a Suhr Classic...

Thank you, I look forward to trying the preset when available. Out of interest, what exactly do you feel is missing in the sound if you want to improve it? Some of the guys that hang out here are positively gifted when it comes to patch tweaking, I'll bet you can tweak a few things before shelling out the hard-earned for a Suhr!

Here are the presets. I listed them in the order they come up in the song.
Maybe a more experienced user can tweak them to the final shape.

This is the clean one. I put a phaser inside but it's bypassed because I don't know how to use it (How crazy is this?)

B Section 1. I use it with the neck pickup. It should use the bridge but I find the sound is more round and warm with the neck pickup.

B Section 2. I use the bridge pickup.

Feel free to tweak them to perfection and then share.

Attached presets. I believe their names tell which is which but the order is:

Homage clean
Homage Buttery
Homage Buttery 2
Homage Solo 1
Homage Solo 2
Homage Final Solo

Feel free to tweak them to perfection and then share.

Nice one Stratman68. Never had that happen before but your solution worked a treat. Will try these patches later. Cheers!

adrianni,
First off, amazing playing I wish to have half your skills one day! 8) But I really want to express my gratitude for you sharing the presets you developed for this song, super generous of you. What blows me away is that they were sooo plug and play for me with my setup, what you hear is what you get WYHIWYG :D
Thanks again
Greg
