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.
VINTAGE PACK – 73 Profiles
M Britt Vintage Pack is a unique collection of Vintage amp profiles including a British 50w AC, a few blackface, silverface, and brownface beauties, Page and Peter Green's hidden gem, a Sears Twin Twelve, the 70's Clapton clean, Benson's jazz combo, a Jazzy 50-watter, B.B. King's and Ty Tabor's favorite L5, and a sweet '84 JK FACS. There plenty of American clean and crunch tones as well as a few cool throwback British sounds. The JC50 can cover about half of every 80's rhythm guitar sound and the PTone and Lab Series can get surprisingly warm sounds from a solid state package. Hopefully, there's something for everyone (minus real high gain metal stuff, of course).
Vintage Pack requires 3.0 firmware or higher and while most amps were profiled using my trusty 3rd Power cabinet, the new separation algorithms make it easier to get more great sounds by switching to your favorite cabs as well.

MODERN PACK – 74 Profiles
The Modern Pack is a collection of modern boutique type amps. The profiles are "studio profiles" meaning they are the full profile with amp, cab, and mic captured. They are suitable for studio or live use. There are plenty of high gain sounds in this pack from some of the popular L.A.-based builders' latest amps. There are also some modern EL84 tones from simple, but toneful 2 and 3 knob circuits, custom made for today's modern country and Paisley's chicken-pickin'. There are also some modern versions of older amps like tweed and pawnshop classics, as well as a couple more thick, creamy d-type amp sounds ranging from Ford to SRV. There is also a couple of Britain's new smaller amps that can have surprisingly big sounds thanks to the Kemper.
The Modern Pack contains profiles made with the 3.0 firmware and must be used with firmware 3.0 or higher. Scroll down for sound clips of the profiles.
800 PACK – 46 Profiles
M Britt 800 Pack is for the long-haired tones of the 80's when hair metal bands roamed the Earth. The earlier British metal-front amps turned into master volume monsters with preamp gain for days. These 800-series amps were some of the most recorded tones of the era and I got my hands on a few different specimens, including a 100w 2203 clone, wicker front 800, as well as an original 50w chrome faced Jubilee and his 100w reissue cousin. If you have an appetite for some kind of audio destruction or just want to rock your blues away, this may be the pack for you.
800 Pack requires 3.0 firmware or newer and while most amps were profiled using my trusty 3rd Power cabinet, the new separation algorithms make it easier to get more great sounds by switching to your favorite cabs as well. The Clips below were recording using ProTools 10 with a Propellerhead Balance interface with no plug-ins or eq or processing using a Gibson '58 Les Paul RI with vintage output humbuckers.
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!
