try the Sitar rig in the Workshop Rig Pack, it uses a different approach to rigs with pitch shifter.
use an open string as drone and add melody on other strings.
However, it would be great if I could have my clean amp sound in the parallel path instead of the DI.
just as a little background info, the Parallel Path feature was requested by pro bassist Rodrigo Gonzales and it works by not only sending the DI signal to the Output, but giving you the opportunity to add two STOMPS like compression and EQ - basically, a channel strip to the DI signal.
If you want to retain your clean amp sound, there are two ways I can think of.
- use a Profile of your clean amp
- activate Parallel Path
- add a overdrive/distortion in A
- add a low-pass Filter or Studio EQ in slot B to mimic the high frequency attenuation of guitar cabinet (~above 5k)
- use a Profile of your clean amp
- set an Output to "Stack" (signal will be tapped right behind AMP and CABINET, no effects - this is your clean sound)
- put a high-pass filter (or Studio EQ) in the first effects slot
- add a overdrive/distortion in MOD
- add a low-pass Filter or Studio EQ in the DELAY slot to mimic the high frequency attenuation of guitar cabinet (~above 5k)
In 1) you'll be distorting your DI signal, in 2) the clean amp Profile will be distorted post STACK, which makes the whole thing a little uncommon, I guess.
switch off the CABINET on the front panel.
then press and hold the LOCK button and press CABINET once more.
now, the CABINET module's 'off' state is locked globally.

put a tremolo in a effect slot, Depth at 10, Stereo at 180,
is the sound now panning from left to right and back?
What is your Gain set to and are you clipping the Input or Output?
If Gain is set to zero, is it still dirty over headphones?
Are you maybe running your signal too hot into whatever follows the PROFILER?
I always recommend a FF as the first DIY kit.
It's extremely simple to build, there are quite a few kits available (even with pre-drilled enlosures) and if you use sockets for the transistors, you can switch them easily later on. (fun, but a slippery slope)

I find the Leslie to be really spikey and over distorted. Be great to be able to change the gain on it to be able to clean it up somewhat. Trying to use it with a very clean compressed guitar sound and it's just too distorted. I know that grit works for most things but not for a really ultra clean sound where you just cannot dial it out.
have you tried the factory rig "CK Rotary Speaker"?
Is it the trick with body vibrations ( is it B or G string to play unplugged and feel vibrations near guitar body plug - one with strongest vibrations is best) ?
a friend that knows a lot more about guitars and their construction once pointed this out to me:
- a common guitar pickup has no way of picking up anything else then the strings vibrating in it's magnetic window (unless it's so microphonic that it is hardly of any practical use
the 'play the guitar acoustically' trope has been around forever, but honestly I've seen it confirmed just as many times as I've seen (heard) it being not true.
I have a Italia Maranello Speedster with a thick metal flake finish - played acoustically it's a'right, nothing special, but when connected to an amp it's a totally different beast and simply a great guitar. The Lace Sensor Alumitone made it even better, but it was a great guitar before.
All I'm saying is that there is A LOT of 'guitar wisdom' being recycled for decades (like the one that the neck pickup on 24 fret guitars doesn't sound good because it's not underneath the location of the harmonic - which really makes no sense, since a harmonic node has significantly less vibrations that any other place.) a LOT can be changed with a decent setup and pickups, but where in real estate it's location, location, location, to me it's neck, neck, neck with guitars.
Find a guitar with a comfortable neck and go from there.
Don't let any advice (including mine) stop you from trusting your instincts.
21.5 kOhm and bass heavy - this kind of pickup isn't exactly middle of the road.
Increase Definition, and this might actually be one of the few cases where a setting other than '0' for Distortion Sense might be beneficial.
less gain - because the pickup is super hot
more Definition, because the pickup is dark, which is to be expected with this much output
possibly lower Distortion Sense to make gainy Profiles globally respond better to this pickup
hast du mal das Kabel PROFILER -> Amp gewechselt?
no posts about commercial rigs and sellers outside the commercial subforum, please.
Don, for your taste, which Germanium pedals have that behaviour?
Anything Fuzz Face or very close to a Fuzz Face (like the common Fuzz Face with added controls) exhibits this behaviour.
Others circuits (Tonebender, Big Muff, Tonemachine, BazzFuzz, Fuzz Tone etc.), to my knowledge and experience, do not.
