BoC Pack “Box of Chocolates” – 134 Profiles

"Mama always said life is like a box of chocolates" (Forrest Gump).  Well, in this case, mama might be referring to the BoC Pack (box of chocolates pack).  This pack contains 134 Profiles (112 studio profiles and 12 DI profiles for bass and acoustic).

After all of the other profile packs I've done, I tend to spend time looking to "fill holes" or find an amp that I've always wanted to profile.  What ended up happening was that I found myself with a lot of profiles that were kind of hard to put into a category.  They cover everything from boutique EL84 amps to funky little tweeds to acoustic preamps to a few higher gain beasts to bass amps.  Included in the BoC Pack are some samples of the amps in the Heavy Pack for those who don't want a full pack dedicated to high gain, but might have a use for a few.  It's a big pack, but I didn't feel comfortable charging any more than my usual.  

Check out the information sheet for details.

The BoC Pack contains profiles made with the 3.0 firmware and must be used with firmware 3.0 or higher.  The clips below were recorded into ProTools 10 using a Propellerhead Balance interface and a Tom Anderson Cobra with 3 P90 pickups, Ibanez Bass, and Tom Anderson Crowdster acoustic.

RACK PACK – 58 Profiles

The Rack Pack consists of 58 Studio Profiles of a couple of classic 80's rack preamps, the ADA MP1 and the Mars JMP-1.  These tube-based preamps bridged the gap between classic tube amps and early digital processors.  Many classic recordings were done with these units and some artists still use these on tour.

The JMP-1 has a classic midrange growl, living up to its gold metal faceplate.  The ADA has a creamier saturation and much more gain on tap.  A buddy turned me on to a .pdf file that has suggested settings for a wide variety of tones using the MP1, so I made good use of those settings in these profiles.  Many of the profiles are named using the initials of the guitarist the suggested settings was trying to mimic.  I think some of them got pretty close.  I also did a few of my own favorite settings as well.

The Rack Pack was creating using the latest 4.x firmware. Please forgive the playing in the audio samples as many of these weren't exactly in my wheelhouse.  Thanks!
