THE AMP

This pack includes profiles and performances of a 2002 Vox AC30/6 TB with Celestion Blue speakers. These Korg-era made in the U.K. AC30’s are highly sought after and are some of the best examples of the ‘Vox tone’ that you can get.

THE PROFILES

We profiled both the Normal and the Brilliant channels, as well as the two channels jumped together.

Normal Channel:

These profiles are warmer/rounding, and have less chime. We love them for warm clean tones and for creating swells and ambience.

Brilliant Channel:

Classic Vox chime. This channel has less bottom end than the Normal channel, but it has chime for days. Sounds great for bright jangly cleans, but when you crank it up or hit it with an overdrive, it sounds glorious.

Jumped Channels:

Our favorite sounds from this amp are produced by jumping the two channels together. This gives you the best of both worlds – warm fat Vox tone with the classic chime.

How we organized the profiles:

For each channel, we created profiles using both a single coil guitar (telecaster style) and a humbucker guitar (Les Paul style). The corresponding profiles are denoted with an ‘SC’ or ‘HB’. As the numbers increase, the level of gain increases. These gain levels were created by turning up the amp (rather than by using drive pedals). For the highest numbered profiles, you’re getting this amp cranked all the way up. Our ears may never recover :).

PERFORMANCES

This pack includes two performances – one dailed in for guitars with single coils and one for humbuckers.

We’ve set up these performances to use all five slots and all four effects buttons of the Kemper Remote/Stagte with morph functions in all slots. Here are the slots and associated effects:

SLOT 1: CLEAN-ISH

This is your clean tone, but we set it up so that it breaks up on the bridge pickup, as long as your pickup has moderate output. Here are the effects in the different slots:

  1. EFFECTS 1: Tremolo (off by default)
  2. EFFECTS 2: Pure Booster (off by default – gives you a bit of drive)
  3. EFFECTS 3: Quarter Note Delay (off by default)
  4. EFFECTS 4: Dotted 8th Note Delay (on by default)

MORPH: Morphing will increase the wetness of both the reverb and delays. The reverb goes into a big ambient verb sound, and the delays increase in both level and feedback.

SLOT 2: DRIVE 1

This slot gives you two levels of overdrive. It’s default tone is a light to medium-light level of drive (depending on how hot your pickups are). Hit the boost, and you’ve got a bit more gain on tap.

  1. EFFECTS 1: Tremolo (off by default)
  2. EFFECTS 2: Pure Booster (off by default)
  3. EFFECTS 3: 8th Note Delay (off by default)
  4. EFFECTS 4: Dotted 8th Note Delay (on by default)

MORPH: Morphing will increase the wetness of both the reverb and delays. The reverb goes into a big ambient verb sound, and the delays increase in both level and feedback.

SLOT 3: DRIVE 2

This slot gives you two more levels of overdrive, both louder than the biggest setting in ‘Drive 1’. It’s default sound is a big rhythm drive tone. You can add more gain with the boost on Effects 2.

  1. EFFECTS 1: Tremolo (off by default)
  2. EFFECTS 2: Pure Booster (off by default)
  3. EFFECTS 3: 8th Note Delay (on by default)
  4. EFFECTS 4: Dotted 8th Note Delay (off by default)

MORPH: Morphing will increase the wetness of both the reverb and delays. The reverb goes into a big ambient verb sound, and the delays increase in both level and feedback.

SLOT 4: LEAD

For our Lead tone, we set up a big gain sound with a level boost above the biggest drive sound in ‘Drive 2’. You’re guitar will lift nicely in the mix. Here are the effects available via the effects buttons:

  1. EFFECTS 1: Analog Octaver (off by default) – this adds a subtle low octave that will add a lot of body to your leads.
  2. EFFECTS 2: Pure Booster (off by default)
  3. EFFECTS 3: Quarter Note Delay (on by default)
  4. EFFECTS 4: Dual Delay – 8th and dotted 8th (on by default)

MORPH: Morphing will increase the wetness of both the reverb and delays. The reverb goes into a big ambient verb sound, and the delays increase in both level and feedback.

SLOT 5: AMBI/SWELL

This slot can be used for volume swells or for super ambient playing (without swells). The delays and reverbs trail for a very long time – proceed with caution :).

  1. EFFECTS 1: Tremolo (off by default).
  2. EFFECTS 2: Pure Booster (off by default)
  3. EFFECTS 3: Crystal Delay (on by default) – this delay creates an awesome Shimmer reverb sound.
  4. EFFECTS 4: Dual Delay – 8th and dotted 8th (on by default)

MORPH: Morphing will increase the wetness of both the reverb and delays. The reverb morph adds more shimmer, and the delays increase in both level and feedback.

MAKING CHANGES FOR YOUR GUITAR

Start with the ‘Definition’ and ‘Clarity’ controls on the amp

These two controls have an enormous impact on the overall tone, and are very efficient at adjusting the gain structure and clarity/tone of the sound, all without straying too far away from the base tone. They’re perfect for tailoring a patch made with humbuckers to a single coil guitar (or vice versa). We always recommend starting here rather than EQ or Gain controls.

EQ Controls: From there, adjust the EQ controls (in the amp stack). If the tone is a bit dark or bright, adjust the EQ to compensate.

Gain control (proceed with caution). We recommend adjusting the gain on the amp last – especially raising the gain. This will introduce digital gain, which sounds pretty gross – it does not behave like a gain knob on an amp. If you need more gain, either adjust the definition control or increase the level control on the compressor. If you need less gain, turn the gain control down works well.
