Ok, this is a thread where we can share different effects/amps settings for Muse songs that people on the board have found and would like share. Hopefully this should minimise the number of threads created asking "how do I get this sound for this song." Obviouly I'll need help from you lot to get as much information on this thread as possible, so any settings you have for songs, please send me a Private Message stating what the settings are and preferably what pedal or amp you found it on. So basically: Find good setting for a song PM me with details of the settings and what pedal/amp it was on I'll put it on here Simple enough Showbiz Sunburn Muscle Museum paranoid: Don`t play with straight on distortion, rather go for a cleanish overdrive, that`s not too bassy. I play it like the album version, so I use the whammy with the harmonizer set on the second setting from below (push the treadle down for the 14th fret notes, then back again after you finished playing them). You could add more distortion for the chorus, as the album version of it sounds weak when you play by yourself. Go with the powerchords instead, sounds better anyway. Fillip Falling Down Cave Showbiz Haze015: You just need some form of delay. Slow, subtle phasing and two fuzzes preferably. One is the FF set to feedback to use for the verse riff(s) or feedback in the second verse like on Hullabaloo, I use my volume control to play around with pitch of feedback if I fancy walking around a bit, doesn't really matter how you do it, also use the fuzz factory for the solo aswell. The second is just for the chorus, just set it for a heavy sound that works with the chords. Unintended Uno Sober Escape Overdue Hate This And I'll Love You Origin Of Symmetry Here's a way of getting close to Matt's live tone during the OOS Tour if those who don't have a DSL: If you have a valve amp, get a mid heavy distortion pedal, like a Rat, turn the volume on the amp right off, then max out the volume on the distortion pedal, then bring the volume of the amp up to whatever is suitable, set the gain to whatever suits you. With a Rat, I managed to get pretty close and just used the guitar's volume for 'clean' and distortion, like Matt did during OOS. New Born Dymund: POD: Fuzz Box, gain all the way up, bass backed off a lot, mids and trebs really high. I also boost this with a G Major's parametric EQ but im guessing not too many ppl have that facility. This gives a quite nasty nazal fuzz that cuts through better than normal. I then add a touch of hall reverb, not so much that it swamps the sound but so that the notes kinda run into one another easier than if there wasnt any. This kind of sound is great for songs like TSP and newborn's intro. Bliss reverendmaynard - (This is a setting for the Line6 DL4) digital delay Time: 5th dot Repeats: 6th Dot Tweak: 5th Tweez: 5th Mix: Up to you. Haze015 - (DL4 again) Sweep Delay, Time = Half, Repeats = Half, Tweak = around 10'o'clock, Tweaz = 2'o'clock, Mix = Half. (Thats one of my presets ok, don't slag me off about it). Space Dementia Hyper Music Deepfat: I have it on a clean channel on the amp, this song is in drop D. I use my back humbucker for a clean tone, I use a Big muff NYC with the tone very high set at 3 o'clock and the sustain set at 8 o'clock. For the intro I have the distortion on. On the Verses I turn the distortion off and just use a clean channel, you can use a delay set on short delay with little of no effect, it just makes the notes clearer and its sounds a bit nicer. When you get to the "just to spit it your face part" I turn my stomp box on and use my neck humbucker to get a heavy distortion on the scraping, then switch back down to my back humbucker for the chorus. Plug In Baby Haze015: (For FF owners) For the main riff set the FF to the Radio Fuzz Preset on the intruction sheet. For the live sound, use a phaser in front of the FF, FF's work pretty much the same with phasers like the Phase 90 and Small Stones in front of them as they do when there's nothing there, except the guitar volume has no effect on oscillation pitch. Basically, that WILL nail the live sound. Deepfat: Plug in baby: I use a clean channel as preset one and then a clean channel with the phaser set to its slowest as preset two, you'll need the channel changer pedal to do this properly. I use a bigmuff, set to tone on full and the distortion at a 1/3, on my neck pickup for the main riff, when played live matt holds the notes 9-----7-----8----10 you should have enought gain to do that as well. I then switch to preset two and turn my muff off for the chorus. Matt usaully plays a little riff here live, you can improvise or work it out what it is for yourself. Switch to your back pickup for the chords on the verse and turn your muff back on. Your then back to the main riff, so select your neck pickup and preset 1 on your amp. Main rift: preset one, muff and neck pickup Chorus: preset two and back pickup Verse: preset two, muff and back pickup Citizen Erased Haze015: You must have full on distortion for this song, otherwise the harmonics don't sound good at all. For the clean verse, use delay for the volume swells. For the solo, just improvise and hit random stuff whilst getting loads of feedback, basically just make noise Helps if you own a Marshall DSL100 which I discovered is what Matt used for the song, really heavily distorted, the harmonics really stand out. Use a soft "V" shape on the EQ for it. Mirco Cuts Screenager Dark Shines Feeling Good Megalomania
