Need help by getting this sound!
Hey there,

I am new here and think I am posting in the right category.

I recently bought the Boss me-70 pedal, and i tried playing with it a bit. Now i would like to achieve this kind of sound (Björn Gelotte/In Flames)

Could anyone advice this noob on how to achieve a somewhat the same sound? I have a marshall MG50CFX amp and this BOSS ME-70 pedal. Do I need extra gear? I have read a lot about the peavey 5105, is it worth getting?

My guitar is a ESP LTD EX-401FM with EMG 81 (B & N) Active p.u.

Get yourself another guitarist to play the harmony parts, that's the key to that sound :p:

Your best bet with your current set up tonewise is probably to run your amp clean and use the r-fier setting on the ME70. Set all the controls to noon then tweak too tase.

Thanks for the advice seljer! I as playing around with the r-fier setting already. I guess I don't have to se the 'metal' distortion setting?

If you are looking to tone match as opposed to create your own tone, I would suggest selling your current gear and getting a peavey vypyr tube amp. You'll have almost every tone available to you with that amp.
