Hello all,

So far the FM9 has been great, not sure how anyone else feels about this but-
I think it is much harder to try to duplicate the old school classic rock raw amp in the room tones than it is to duplicate the modern rock.

I am working on creating new presets for Beatles, Zeppelin and more.. and learning as I go.
Seeing I am new here, I can not share till I reach my 10 post per forum rules.

If anyone has anything that may help me, Celestion G12M Pre-Rola 25w cab ir's , Vox AC50 or AC100 captures, please feel free to msg me.

Thanks- Mike

Whole Lotta factory preset will get you going on Zep!

I’ve been having good experiences starting with a factory pre and then customizing to taste depending on how I want my scene to be. They make great building blocks and plenty are just grab and go

I would agree that it is much easier to get a high gain tone from the FM9 than the classic rock tones. The amp models seem to have a lot of gain on hand to use. I have a Friedman Twin Sister amp so I am familiar with the actual amp circuit that the Dirty Shirley models are built to duplicate. I found that they have much more gain than what I ever run my real amp at. I turned the gain on these amp models down to 1.5 to 2.0 and that is where I started finding more of the tones I was looking for. If you are not familiar with the Dirty Shirley or the Twin Sister amps they are a modified JTM45 40 watt circuit.

I used the combination of a creamback and greenback speakers in the cabinet section.

Another piece of advice I would give is that if you are planning on using your presets live, hook up to a mixer and PA speakers to tweak your tones. You want to get them up to the volume that you will be using them at live. There will be a difference in sound between tweaking them at volume and at a lower volume.

Keep reporting back on how you are doing. I am a clean/low gain/medium gain player. It sounds like we are in a similar range. I am always up for sharing information on getting the most out of these units.
