Ghost profile tone matching

  • So I've seen a few people in searches popping up from this forum and Reddit asking about Ghost profiles. The closest I've personally gotten is with modified JCM800 and Orange Rockerverb profiles. So to answer a few questions for myself and others I did a quick cover of Dance Macabre. Mistakes are present and it's just a quick dirty mix and I messed around with a harmony on the last solo. I used the STL Tones Lee Malia pack Orange Rockerverb 100 Mkii TS808 profile (So not a free profile). The key to getting where close was adding power sag, adjusting the definition and adding a fair amount of clarity along with a bit of EQ. From seeing them live it sounds like one guitar player (black guitar) is cutting mids while the other guitarist (white guitar) is boosting mids so that's where I went with it. If you are trying to get a tone for these guys I suggest finding a good Rockerverb profile and getting into the Amplifier menu and start adjusting. They are using Axe FX 3's live and quite honestly I always get the feeling that the Axe FX sounds dry (tighter?) compared to the Kemper which is where I found the clarity option helpful. Here's a clip of what I got out of the experiment. If you have the Lee Malia profiles my settings are on the soundcloud link in the description. Good luck and have fun on the tone search guys and girls.
