For each effect block, we set up all four channels to give you as many options as possible for each individual effect types. For example, in the Compressor block, there are four different types of compression. For drives, we use all available channels in each drive block to get different overdrive flavors. Please experiment with the channels in all the different blocks to find your favorites. Typically we use our favorites in Channel A.

The exceptions to this are usually the amp and cab blocks – for those we usually only set up Channel A.


The following scenes are set up for instant access to various tones:

  • SCENE 1: INTRO/RIFF. Light drive
  • SCENE 2: VERSE 2/AMBI. 2 delays and bigger verb
  • SCENE 3: BRIDGE RIFF. Medium gain and bigger verb to make the lines pop
  • SCENE 4: RIFF/CH+. Medium drive for bigger choruses
  • SCENE 5: OUTRO. More like a solo scene with w stages of drive
