The NEWER Ultimate Settings Thread!

Well folks, it appears to be that time again. What time is that? Time for a new settings thread of course! We are going to keep the rules the same, and they are pretty simple. Basically:

Include the following:
Gain:
Bass:
Mids:
Treble:
Effects (if needed):
Other Info:


numbers for settings should be numeric values out of 10, not clock positions. Let’s keep this standard to avoid confusion.


Now, if you have a request that is not covered in the first few posts, feel free to ask. If a setting is given to the request, feel free to PM myself of another GG&A mod to add it to the list. This way we can keep the settings in one easy to find place. If you just have a setting you would like to be added to the list, also feel free to PM it to one of us.

REMINDER:
Not all amps are created equal, so keep this in mind when using these settings. Don’t look at them as a definite answer; look at them as a place to start. Some amps may have more mids inherent to the amp, so you may have to adjust accordingly. Same for other settings, make sure you adjust as it suits your amp. So now we can have some fun with settings and help one another out!

A huge thanks goes out to which ones pink and WlCmToTheJungle


XIFR'S GUIDE ON HOW TO EQ AND FIND YOUR OWN TONE

Amps generally have a three band eq, meaning bass, mid and treble. They sometimes have a fourth band, presence, which control frequencies above the treble range.

When you're eqing, start with all controls at noon, or 5. This is a point of no boost or cutting of the frequencies. Play it a bit and get used to the sound of the amp and see what needs to be added or taken away. It is best to do this listening (and this applies to listening in all further stages of this guide) in a band setting, because your sound changes drastically when you have other instruments. This is because you have to find your 'place'. Listen to 'Sweet Child of Mine' by Guns n Roses - when Slash comes in by himself at the start it sounds trebly and horrible, but then when the band comes in it fits the mix perfectly and has people all over the world trying to get this tone.

So anyway, you've got an idea now of what your amp sounds like, time to make some adjustments. Cut treble if there's too much, or cut bass if it's too boomy (don't be scared to cut heaps of bass, honestly, guitar requires pretty much no bass, even when you're playing rhythm - listen to some Van Halen to see what I mean. Ever wondered why the bridge pickup was so popular for rock?

This would probably be a good time to add in some 'mids'. The midrange is a frequency range roughly between 500 and 1000 hz. Remember when I talked before about finding your spot in the mix? This is the knob that does it. The guys who makes amps and speakers know this, and usually speakers are voiced with a mid 'hump' - that is, a boost in the midrange frequencies. This is how you not only get yourself heard without having to turn up too much, but without drowning out the other instruments too. Mess with this knob while you're jamming with your band to find the right balance between 'cutting through' and sounding too boxy or honky, or like an old transistor radio.

So there you have it, that should have you well on your way to getting a good tone. Use the below settings as a guide to get particular sounds, but remember that your gear is different and thus, they should be used more as a rough guide that a hard and fast way to get that particular tone.


EQ AT DIFFERENT VOLUMES (a bit of audio theory, don't read if you don't like complex stuff)

Take a look at this graph



What is it? It is an equal loudness contour. Our ear hears different frequencies differently. Each line is what spl level (loudness) is needed at each frequency to get an equal or flat frequency response in our ears. As you can see, it is extremely hard to reproduce lower frequencies (hence why bassists all have rigs of doom) and extremely easy to reproduce midrange/upper midrange frequencies.

However, if you look at the graph, you'll notice that as we get louder, the frequency response of the ear gets flatter.

What does this mean? As you turn up your amp to get the same tone as when it is quiet you'll have to compensate by turning up your mids and possibly treble. This makes the mid scoop a really bad idea.




NOTE: this is the thread for settings. any other threads asking about/for settings will be closed and the threadstarter directed here. thanks for your cooperation.

Well, I did the Neil Young and Pete Townshend setting.

The Pete Townshend is very old and sounds better if you have the mids on about 7 and presence and treble on 8 instead, bass is still on 5. For gain it varies what era you want, for early stuff, pretty low about 2-3, but for the Tommy and Who's Next era era it's somewhere between 4-6 (basically when you dig in it should be dirty, but when you play soft and roll back the volume it should be clean)

Nice work.

All the Slash settings work nicely and Angus Young is pretty good.

?i dont see how this can work. amps have very different frequency responses, and the tone control circuits will be different from amp to amp.

It's a starting point. None of the settings are set in stone, but they serve as a guideline.

Well, it's a rough guideline. People should tweak the settings a bit to make it sound right with their amp.
