Opps... I forgot about that..

As far as the tone in the video its not his normal rig more then likely so he isnt using the dual amp setup. My guess is its some where in the middle as far as tone goes..

You can try this guys settings... See if that gets you close..

In my guitar world magazine it shows his rig, and his Mark 4 isn't scooped like the rest, but i know he uses 2.. One scoops and one boosted.

just dick around with the amp for a week.. That's what everyone does with mesas I can get mark morton's tone out of my DC. They don't use a lot of gain, which is like a big secret I guess. Actually, it's kinda obvious that they don't use a lot of gain.
