Love my Mesa Horizontal Rectifier 2X12's. If it's good enough for Andy Timmons, good enough for me!
Will check this out Burkhard and report back.
This is the first time I've updated to the firmware since the initial update that included the new reverbs was released so assuming something has changed there.
No mate, the exact same delay settings copied and pasted to other blocks work fine.
I take blank profile (no effects any where so all blocks are blank only the stack section active). If I add a delay to X or MOD it works as expected and just adds delay. Copy that exact block to DEL or REV and the whole rig drops by 3 dB or so. None of the parameters have changed in the settings anywhere I look.
Is anyone else experiencing this with 18.104.22.16848 release?
If I add a delay into either of those slots the rig volume drops by about half. This doesn't happen with slot X or MOD.
A good read Mats
Awesome Liam. I think I spotted that one and thought it would make a great partner for my Rosewood 513 but didn’t pull the trigger because I really need a hardtail PRS. Ikm on the lookout for a Rosewood McCarty I think.
Good to seethat one went to a good home
Yeah was actually a 513 rosewood I was after initially but couldn't resist this.
Just purchased this 2008 PRS Custom 22 Rosewood Artist Package on Sunday, absolutley outstanding guitar, the best I have ever played.
I was expecting it be great but this is something else! The rosewood neck plays and feels exceptional.
1 piece mahogany body
1 piece 10 top artist quilt top
Dragon 2 pickups
Wide Fat neck
These are outstanding profiles, thanks a lot! With EBMM these sound really kickass, excellent Higain tones of an really good Marshall =)
Thanks, EBMM Axis should work very well with these are they were nearly all created and dialed in using either one or an EVH Wolfgang USA.
Thank you very much Liam.
Just a question: did you cut some high frequencies?
I find them not very open or airy, they have a very little presence...
I tried them with strato and les paul.
I generally low pass at around 12 to 10 kHz as I like to mic right on the edge of the cap seam on the speaker which can be quite bright on Marshall type circuits, running V30's and an SM57, but introduces a little fizz that I don't like to hear.
I generally prefer sounds a touch darker as these settings are to be used at high gig volumes on the real amp, in a recorded mix I'd be tempted to set more treble on the amp to help them cut.
What are you playing them through? Generally I use either a real Mesa Cab 2X12 the one which is the cab I profiled with. Straight through the PA, or if at home through Grado headphones or a Friedman ASM-12 wedge.
Thanks to everyone for all the kind words over the course of this thread. Glad everyone is liking the tones and finding good uses for them.
Probably the best non-commercial profiles (and even quite some commercial)!
Thank you very much.
One question though, you've added the "loop distortion" in the X slot and it delivers a kind of space or panorama effect.
Any idea were this comes from since I would expect that a loop is a loop and nothing more?
Hi Steinberger1967 . Is it on a particular profile or all of the latest ones?
I'm wondering if its an issue with firmware versions. I'm using the latest 22.214.171.12481 Spring Reverb Preview and created these profiles using this beta.
In the X Slot should be the Quad Chromatic Delay (Del 4) set to 0 ms delay on the left side and 25 ms on the right side and delay I use if for stereo thickening or add 3.2 detune in the setting and it is set to as close a settings as I can get to the Eventide H910/H949 micropitch setting. So what you are hearing is probably he correct effect but it is showing on your profiler as a dist loop effect.
Here are the only two at hand. I'll take some more for you front and back later on.
do you gave any pics of the Marshall JMP 2203 Super Lead Mark ll head I like to make a file with amp pic attached with the profiles.
Yes no problem, I'll go and have a quick look if I have any at hand fast
OK, I’ve uploaded a few more profiles. These may be the last for my amp as I think this is about as good as I can achieve with the current setup, unless I come into a new mic combination and positioning I like better, or maybe a great new cab with some different speakers.
I’ve revised, re-profiled and uploaded profiles of my preferred live settings that I use on the real amp. So you’ll find a profile with 3 gain stages, with and without the zener diode clipping engaged and also a profile each of 4 gain stages with and without the clipping just as I did with the very first batch. I find these to have a bit more punch, a better mid-range clarity/note separation than my previous attempts.
There is also a 4 gain stage profile boosted with typical modern metal TS-9 settings for any modern metal high gain lovers.
I’ve also included profiles of the same settings but clean boosted with various pedal emulations from my Fractal FX-8.
The pedals are:
Ibanez Tube Screamer TS-9
Xotic BB Pre
BK Bulter Tube Driver (3 Knob Version)
Settings on the amp were:
Gain 1: 7
Gain 2: 10
Bold/Spongy Power Amp: 0 (Tight)
Cab: Mesa Boogie 2X12 Horizontal with British V30’s)
Mics: Shure SM57 and Sennheiser MD421 – Just past the cap edge, on axis, 1 inch from grill cloth, I’d say 70/30 split in favour of the SM57.
PS: Search for Liam Thompson JMP 2203 and today's date (21st October 2018) and you should find them.
Just uploaded 6 new profiles of the current settings I've been using with the real amp. You should be able to find them soon on Rig Exchange searching for "Liam Thompson" and looking for the date 27-08-2018 and the word "NEW" in the rig name.
I've decided I prefer the presence control turned up a little more and the treble down some more lately to balance the top end. The way the presence seems to work on the Friedman BE-100 and my amp is to add the top end as expected but it also adds some thicker lower mids to the tone also. I find it makes the tone a touch more "modern" and not as 80's hair metal is the best way I can describe what I hear.
Settings for these profiles were:
Gain 1: 8
Negative Feedback: 0 = tight
I profiled these settings with and without the Zener Diode clipping enabled and in both the 3rd and 4th gain stage settings.
I prefer these to my original profiles, you lot may too...............or may not as the case might be!
