CRANK N GO PACK
PROFILE PACK 3 – 60 Profiles
Profile Pack 3 is a collection of 60 profiles based on the amp sounds* of 18 different amps including a recreation of a 50's tweed deluxe, some great California boutique high gain monsters, a couple of JTM45-based amps, a 15-watt British Invasion amp, a CA wicker monster by way of TX, and some other cool, hard-to-find amps.
In keeping with the tradition of packs 1 & 2, I wanted to provide an assortment of gain levels, from clean to heavily overdriven tones. I also wanted to capture a few old-school R&R tones like the JTM45 type amps for the Classic Rock sounds of the 70's and 80's. There's even some authentic Boston tones just for fun.
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!
