MM Blues pack

There are 4 snapshots, which covers a lot : 1. "Clean" - slightly compressed, sparky bluesy tone which sounds very nice on neck pickup and is reactive to playing dynamic. 2. "Gritty", same as previous just with some more compression. 3. "Crunch" , tight distorted sound with sufficient clarity, good for range of styles from blues, rock to hard rock, 4. "Lead", singing distorted lead sound with lot of sustain but also with sufficient clarity, which is not too aggressive and cuts nicely through the mix. Sounds nice either on humbuckers or single coil pups, (tested on low, mid and high resistance pups ranging from 7.5 K to 15 K). You can find examples of my patches on the channel youtube.comSnapshot 2 and  here:  youtu.be

Bonamassa Live

This is a modified version of bart2580's "Bonamassa 1959LP" patch on customtone. I modified it to use a built-in cab rather an an IR, and made a few smaller tweaks as well. The delay is very present in the mix, so you my want to tame it a bit, I like it.

Appetite 1/2 Step

This patch solves my biggest headache as a guitar player - playing along to GNR's Appetite for Destruction with standard tuning. Uses the new Poly Capo model to virtually tune you down 1/2 a step. Genius!If you own some good IR's (and you should) - substitute the cab choice. You'll get even closer to the album tone.

Blink 182

Two snapshots - "Dammit" is straight up early 2000's punk rock dirt. "Adam" is a clean tone. The third footswitch allows you to turn reverb on and off.Tom Delonge used a variety of amps and guitars throughout the years, from AC30's to Rectifiers. The Revv amp is a good match for the album tones. Use a hot passive pickup on your guitar to get close. (JB, Gibson Dirty Fingers, and of course the Duncan Invader).

Heavy Metal (Takin' a Ride) by Don Felder

This patch generates the beginning keyboard sound by using three 3-Note Generators, delay, overdrive and chorus as well as the verse delay using a momentary stomp footswitch. There are a couple ways to start the song. Check out the video at the bottom of this page.Here's how I do it.Start the Organ stomp (wait at least 10 seconds for minimum Attack time). You can change the Attack time of each 3-Note Generator for quicker intro.Have the drummer do a four beat count in. On 4, turn off the Organ (the delay will keep it ringing for another beat)Immediately step on the Verse Delay and on 1 of the next bar play the D->E chords and one chug on the open E chord.Release the Verse Delay (it will trail) and keep chugging.Repeat steps 4-5 for each bar.I put a 1-Switch Looper at the end  so you can record the main riff to solo over. If you do use it, I recommend using the Solo Dly for the first D->E so you have time to hit the looper, turn off the Solo Dly (it will trail) then use the Verse Delay for the rest of the rhythm.It uses the same Fulltone OCD and Deluxe Reverb as Felders rig rundown on YouTube. Enjoy.

The clean tone was inspired by a JHS video where he demonstrates a clean tone using a maxed out Fuzz Face. Yes. Let that sink in. Then I added progressively dirtier tones and set it up using command center for the HX Stomp footswitches.
