In just a few minutes, you can dial in a perfectly good, working tone that uses typical effects setups that you hear on your favourite re cordings. You can also save your own Quick Settings. Now I know a much simpler way to get started. One of my favourite things to do is.
It helps if you know your way around the dials. Here's a few things you might want to look into when tweaking the GT Effects chain. Having your effects in the right order can truly effect t he sound. There are lots of posts on chain effects and the order in which some people have used them to achieve a desired effect. EQ settings. EQ settings on all the effects that you use either together or as one can be a pain in the ass.
Global setting tend to have a lot to do with this problem. I've read on some posts he re that it's a good start by shutting down all the effects and run straight through your GT-8 with no effects what so ever. Get a good clean sound that you are happy with by adjusting the global settings.
After that, be sure to create a c hain properly by placing the effects in the correct order in which they should be in, I. E delays, Chorus, EQ's and distortions effects. You can tell what type of prea mp or OD your on if you try it. Fl angers, Phasers, 2x2 Choruses , Compressors very cool ,.
Quick Settings menu. Page 17 of Tweaking the EQ within the effect also help colour the tone in which you are trying to create. Example: Just a distortion sound you are trying to cr eate. The head, the speaker cab, the mic setting, and the EQ setting on those will also effect the sound you are trying to produce. EQ the amp m odel you want to use until you arrive at a balanced sound that is approximate to what you want.
Step two Turn on cabinet and mic sims. Step Three Eq and comp. I use a moderate setting for the low Mids to serve as my main mid range control. Step 4 Optional Another good thing to do is bring in the tone modifiers. I like the resonators and the fat mods the most. Step 5. Now turn on the stomp box. I usually never ever turn the gain above 30 and I park the level at I hope it works for you.
I take issue with the first part of this. ALWAY develop patches with the gear you intend to use them with unless. I never have access to it. A good place to start with getting a good lead tone out of the GT-8 is with the EZ Tones on page 24 of the manual. They are a good starting point for getting basic tones.
Use one of the rectifier sims, or lead for some. Careful with the gain too. Also, try some of the EZ EQ. I never use the original cab. Firstly it kills a lot of fizz and brings up the low end. I actually have made a custom cab that I use in almost all my patches. I say this for a few reasons. Page 18 of What I usually do is pick the mic and place it anyw here between centre and 5cm out the just seems to have a cleaner high end, and sounds the most transparent to my ears. Depending on how much the high end is there.
I use the mic placement to tweak the highs. Boost usually. One of the differences that you are noticing between the sound from your ubermetal pedal and the GT-8 is the analogue vs digital argument. A couple of helpful directions:. Or, alternatively, mess with different output settings. NOTE: I suggest lowering levels as well as decreasing certain levels, because it is interest ing to note that sometimes, when you raise the level of say, the preamp section, it sometimes drastically reduce s the fizzy quality, whereas nor mal logic dictates the fizz should reduce when you lower the level.
Other than the normal EQ on the GT-8, there is also a sub-equalizer, under the FX-1 subhead, so you might want to fool around with these tools to attain your sound.
The Global EQ is another means of tweaking your guitar sound. Normally, the Global EQ is intended for being able to use a certain patch with another guitar which it was not programmed on. It allows you to tweak the EQ levels further so that you could mimic, say a Les Paul with a Fender guitar. It is my experience with multi-e ffects processor that adding more effects always digitise the sound, and in the case of the noise suppressor, it kills sustain and tone as well.
Or, if you are having a little static hiss, use it at low levels to ameliorate the problem. However, my advice to you would be to turn it off altogether. When I first started programming my GT-8, I was trying to add all the effects I wanted at one time, and everything I came up with was crap. Then I tried working with only one effect at a time.
If you are still refining your technique, I know, theoretically, we will always be refining our technique, then you should really consider the why up between distor tion and clarity.
At least until you get some better technique you hack. Page 19 of And probably more than once, I had victimised my tone by hav ing too much gain, just to get that big palm mute. If this is something you want in your sound too, then dial your gain down around 3 and play your favourite riff, while slowly dialling in more distortion until you just get that big, distorted palm mu te sound.
Too much presence when playing live! Ok, the big, bright crunching metal sound is cool. But dude! Presence is form of high-Mids, which is somewhat essential for metal guitar.
But completely unwanted in highe r doses. Hopefully someone else can help in how to tackle this! While it may sound peachy keen at a low volume, but. As a rule of thumb, do a sound check at all times. Your mid knob IS your friend. Use it wisely. T-scream with the Drive around and the Level around 50 Put it in front of a Marshall sim get ready to wail away. Clean Twin with or without the T-Scream is also great. You can control the volu me but that's it.
What ever else you desire you have to do. I checked my unit and seem to have the solo level most often set to If you want the only difference in channel A and. B to be the solo boost then copy channel A to channel B, first make sure you are on channel A then push the write.
Page 20 of Best to use EQ to add some mid-range boost to both amps. This works a treat. I believe there's an option in the GT-8 wher e you can turn both solo functions for preamps A and B. It's there in the ctrl pedal choices. It's right after hold delay and before patch num inc.
Out of curiosity, can you tell us which EQ frequencies you 'boost' using the footswitch? Presumably, your 'off' position is flat EQ? What are the parameters for your 'on' position? No, actually my off isn't flat EQ. I keep the EQ on all the time, it's just in different forms. Let's use a couple of the Quick EQ settings as an exampl e. Say you want the Mid Boost and Fat Lead on the same patch.
The EQ values are as follows:. Mid Boost:. Fat Lead:. That leaves 6 values that need to change. Keep going until you are done. This was kind of an extreme example, I usually don't make that many assigns to alter the EQ. Generally I'll use it to boost the mid EQ l ow and high and the overall level.
Otherwise you limit your ability to use assigns for other functions bec ause you can have a max of 8 for a patch. I'm wondering if anyone has figured out a good formula for setting the volume difference between their rhythm and solo patch sounds. What do you guys do in terms of volume and EQ when designing a rhythm patch and then a solo sound to match it? I don't like to pre-program a volume difference for that purpose, because I find that the di fference that works at home doesn't necessarily work with a band.
Or works with a low volume band but not a high volume band. Or works from my monitor but not FOH. Given that I only run in mono, I go the low-tech non-pro grammable solution: run a Boss GE-7 after my preamp and step on it for all solos as well as selecting the patch I want. Related Posts.
