Can anyone show me their presets for Muse stuff on your HD500? I have a Firehawk, which cannot download user tones created with the HD500, but if I know what goes into the presets I can copy them myself. Can't seem to download the tones and open them up on my computer without owning an HD either :$

First thing's first, what are you running into? Do you use an actual amp or anything with the Firehawk?

Just thought I'd contribute a good sound I've managed to find for SMBH Live.

To achieve the tight fuzz kind of sound, I'm using a Fuzz Factory, set at 2:30, 2:45, 5:00, 10:00, run through a distortion pedal at full drive, and tone at about 1:00. This of course is open to alterations based on your pickups/amp etc.

What do you think of the MXR Distortion + or BOSS OS-2?

 

I recently bought the boss os-2 and personally am loving it. It can achieve a wide range of sounds from full blown distortion to more blues style overdrives. Tones that sound great on all pickup selections are available, and its a very affordable pedal too.

Thank you! I was interested in the MXR Distortion + but someone tell me to buy the Boss-OS2. I will check some reviews,

Other than their delay pedals, Boss pedals are wank

 

Well with the OS-2 as my only boss pedal, I cant say that that statement is wholly false, but I think its unfair to say that theyre all crap apart from delay. For the price, you really cant do much better.

RC-3, DS-1 and TR-2 are the only Boss pedals I own and I can't complain about any of them.

I've owned a whole bunch previously and just never got on with them. Still own their RC-30 Looper but I don't really use it anymore. I just find their distortion pedals really thin and their modulation pedals just don't do enough for me.

Guys, I have a question about the tone of Eternally Missed - is there a Phaser or Whammy in the solo? It sounds to me like there's a phaser-ish sound but I don't know effects enough to tell.

 

Btw, I set my FF at 10 2:30 3:15 5 5 and I think the Fuzz sounds pretty close?

I'm fairly certain there's no whammy action in the solo, but there does seem to be a phaser going on, though only with a low amplitude (i.e., it only affects the guitar signal slightly).

Thanks Cyndris. I'm still not sure how to control the phaser on the line 6. Do i set the mix and feedback so low that there's no squealing/ flapping back sounds?

Your question is a little vague. Which part of the tone are you aiming for specifically.

 

Since you mentioned the wah, I assume it's that part you want. Matt's guitar has a Wah Probe built in, which is basically a Colorsound Wah with a proximitiy controller. Any inductorless wah should work for that tone.

I don't think he's actually using the wah probe there. It sound like a phaser to me.

 

For his tone, humbucker guitar into Diezel amp. That's pretty much the bulk of it. For the parts mentioned where it sounds "wah-y" I'm sticking with it being a phaser and not a wah. Similar to a Mike Einziger vibe on the intro to Vitamin except with a shitload of distortion.

I think the link I posted probably isn't the best example for the sound I'm after. This performance is probably the best.
Around 39 seconds to be specific. Digging around online I think an auto-wah pedal might do the trick.

 

An auto wah will most likely NOT do that. You're just going to want either a regular wah pedal, or a nice eq pedal that you can use as a bandpass filter. Wah pedals are just movable bandpass filters anyway. That sound comes from a huge boost in a specific frequency. Get a wah pedal, turn it on, leave it in one position. Also known as a cocked wah sound.

Very uncommon for EQ pedals to be capable of bandpass filtering, its rare enough outside of EQ plugins.

 

But yeah, wah or filter pedals and auto-wahs are also capable of fixed wah sounds and a bit more ideal for it than normal wah pedals.

Not strictly true. The majority of commercial graphic eq pedals use a series of bandpass filters, with fixed centre frequencies and resonance. They are terrible in terms of phase shift where the frequency bands overlap. With a guitar it's not that notocable but for high end audio it's unacceptable. That's why they're uncommon in modern studios, usually reserved for specialist applications like kick drum eq.
