Here is my latest track , if a fast one @ 160. This one should wake you up
I'm still testing the JCM 800 on spring settings, & I love it more & more. Well did I mention I like the JCM800
The Vox complements the Marshall quite well as it's very bright for crunch rhythm , harmonizing and mix cutting leads vs that huge wall of Marshall tone.
The bass is Rumble & 59 Fender.
Don't mind the stupid vocals , that was just me growling in my SM57 , but for once I almost liked my voice there with that over-processed tone.
Great stuff !
You normally catch this tune with a juggling uni-cyclist or a circus. I gotta work on my stage presence.
I think this guy on the Jaguar reincarnated as Yngwie Malmsteem
Hi, I just got a few minutes to test the mark I and it was quite an experience, no simple beast as most boogies I had the luck to own or test.
The profile sounds just as dynamic as the real amp , I mean huge dynamics and sensibility to your attack, excellent. The tone has a typical boogie vibe, and the drive is a good mixture of crunch , a tad of mud , but the type I love especially on neck PU. It's quite a gainy profile , but I know Carlos uses lots of changes on his guitar pots , so yes , lots of tones are available by just turning them. This is not the modern Carlos tone PRS & Bludotone , but much more the early SG era.
This profile really benefits from the spring verb , especially my short spring setting ( available on my 'boogie on verb' free profile on rig ex). Instant 70's tone with the mark I.
I was surprised by the relative lack of sustain, I know you must use the feedback to get the 30sec of single notes Carlos used, but on single sustained notes at room volume , It's a bit deceptive.
Well I need further testing and recording , as this ones sits really well on my mixes, I used two other different profiles on my Santana like track , a kitty Hawk & a Dumble ODS , I'll compare them, but they seem to be in the same ballpark once layered on a track.
Many thx for this profile
Hi, I'm found of stoner tones, and I'd like to get my hands on these profiles ,
So has any of you that great Randall ? Did you manage to get profiles out of it ?
Yeah, you nailed it pretty good judging from the clip. I was looking for this since I Got my KPA, many thx ! I'll try this tonite , what a bliss !!
My Santana track was already done , but I have another one coming , and now with a real Mark I , great
My old track :
I'm very sorry for you Ced', I did not know frets to be so fragile, but yes it's really a pain in the ass to have a worn fret , make a beloved instrument unplayable.
Anyway, I had lots of fun with this vid , especially when you threw the CD and your acting was very funny, so were the voices.
I also must say that watching you working out inspired me a lot , and I began yelling in my mike too, I love these super high pitched screams.
I like the vinyl mix , bassier & meatier rhythm guitar tones as the CD is mix is brighter, flatter and more commercial to me
Love the ritalin overdose intro
killer ! I hope you'll win
Comon y lé ?
I really dig that tune, man. Really. Clicked it for the spring reverb thing, but couldn't stop listening to it because of the music.
Yep thx , It's a simple track done in an hour or so, I'm glad you like it as I had lots of fun with the marshalls. sounds a bit like Survivor 'eye of the tiger' marshall tones.
Cool track, Renaud! Experimenting can yield some mighty fine results - case in point!
the JCM 800 tone is easily the best I ever recorded , and you would swear it's a LesPaul on this track, but it's not :
It's my semi-hollow Ibanez artist with P90 hand-wound by my luthier , treble on bridge PU tone knob is about 4 on 10 as it's a super bright guitar but no mud !! This guitar is so versatile that I did not take my others guitars out of storage since I moved this summer. I'm now a 1 guitar man
It's more & more evident to me that reverb is such a core part of guitar tones, you'll get instant 60's or 70's vibe with this spring reverb.
thx guys !
That was quite a challenge for me to sing , and even harder in German !
As German Folks did not comment my singing in German, I assume it's either too bad or too smooth for a Rammstein like vibe.
Will do better & harder next time !
This song features my vocals , with lyrics taken from Wagner's Tannhäuser Opera. I wanted to try my spoken word in a Rammstein style. Yeah that's quite lots of processing on my voice
German natives, I'm really interested in your critics here. I really tried not to scorch your beautiful mother tongue , but that was tough as I had 4 years of German back in school, but was terrible at it
I also had hard times doing the tapping parts as I did not made any since the 90's when I was trying to learn the famous Am I evil parts.
Amps are : JCM 800 & Cameron CCV. No synths as pads were made with my guitar on delays.
Had time to try'em with a fuzz engaged, and I was sent back to the 60's.
Awesome work & collection , and a very creative way to use the rhythm delay.
Having 5 echo machine renditions is a real bliss
Kemper team , please stick/pin the post or make a special rig pack out of these works , that's really deserved
search for Hays profiles, freebies, he made a very nice sounding champ set of profiles , I don't know which model , but it's vintage 67 one
I think that sounds great!
Thx Paul, that was my initial thought when I dialed the boost pedal in.
That's rather-brilliant, Renaud, and in so many ways.
Great tones and contrasts, and effective, musical use of them.
Many thx Nicky , the track did not make it's way to a full song , but I liked the tones a lot. The contrast is & dynamics are indeed great but mainly because the PM and powerchords are not mixed, and have that raw marshall character we all love.
really dig the vocals , and your avatar as well
Hi, I just set up a new way of recording my favorite marshall profiles, a JMP and a JCM 800.
I fount a way to set up the spring pre amp , and then a hall verb post amp, pretty unusual, but sounding very fat to me.
Some of us have noticed that the spring really weakens the signal , as the original spring model had a band pass taming lots of the amp tone . It's highly musical but it turns most of my profiles to somewhat weaker vintage versions.
My solution was to boost my guitar signal with a boost pedal ( real stuff) in front of my KPA with some EQ ( from the pedal ) . I think the feel and tone is working great here as it brings my marshall tone much more fuller . I really dig the tones , the sound is very natural compared to my usual verb settings.
I wish the new sping will allow us to bypass the bandpass with a tick box or a knob control.
Ash , you seem to like my vocals, I just did a short vocal in the middle, very unusual tone , as I was hooking my SM57 to my KPA to record these : I just had the whole JCM8OO profile still loaded (lots of gain ) , with a -2 transpose on it ( this is the way I record most of my stoner tracks) , it's kinda creepy but I like my vocals here more than my usual clear voice . Once again a very unusual solution , but interesting results.
Now for the clips :
note : the Mid JCM800 section has no post processing on the PM & power chords parts, pretty raw and dynamic.
Great tones, and that bass I wish I could slap like this
Love the Lead Melody Renaud!, always interesting man and you never know what to expect next from you lol...Next door to me have 2 hens in their backyard, you know i am going to play this track near the fence tomorrow haha.
Thx Ash , yes I'm on vacation ATM ( 12 weeks a year at my current job , it's awesome ... yes we're in France) so I had lots of frustration not being able to record until now ... Creativity did build up and and I shot 3 tracks in a row yesterday, that was fun and I feel much better now, maybe it works just like sex
I played the intro of my track pretty loud to the three lone hens from my old neighbour , and they seemed really puzzled while not really sexually exited
I love stupid experiments, and I didn't know about the Trex, yes that's quite a loose way to evolve, but at least they did survive until now
