Live Set

1F-TYPE CLEANA simple, straightdforward clean aimed at being the base point for most gigs.
2BREAK UP BLUESAimed at replicating a cranked clean to give an authentic blues tone. Turn on CTL 2 for some crazy sounds!
380s CC CHORUSI use this patch when playing with China Crisis. It's great for an 80's style clean chorus - think power ballads!
4ROTARY BLUESEmulating a rotary sound. Almost feels like an organ! Great for chordal playing and lead sounds alike. Experiment with CTL 1(OVERTONE) + 2(CHORUS).
5FRED LEADA Modern Lead tone based on a modded British Amp. A great lead tone for modern prog/metal!
6ACOUSTIC + SHIMAn acoustic sim designed to work well for gigs accompanying a singer. Turn on CTL 1 for a lovely shimmer reverb.
7LOFI CLEANTrying to emulate broken tape machines and old vinyl's, this clean has a gorgeous pitch mod. Now you can create Lofi HipHop to study/sleep to too!
8NEO SOUL WAHThis one features a touch-wah on CTL1 that is so synonymous with the style. Turn it off for a versatile clean. Can also be used to play over the top funk!
9OCTAVE FUNKNo need for a Bass player anymore with this patch! Ideally use It for Funk stuff, but have fun - experiment.
10LOW GAIN LEADThis is my go-to lead sound. As a player that doesn't like to use a lot of gain, I find this one cuts through perfectly but also feels comfortable enough to play!
