I am thinking about buying one of these things. I realize they have a bunch of effects on them, like phaser and flager, etc. Question is: Can i layer these effects on top of each other, or can i only use one at a time? (this is just using a guitar and this amp, no other technology)

You cna only layer the delay/reverb ontop of the other stuffl iek flanger/chorus and stuff.
Basically anything possible when delay nad reverb are one knob and everythin gelse is anotehr knob.
#3
The chorus, flanger, phaser, and tremolo are all on the same knob, so those can only be used one at a time.

The delay and reverb are on their own knob, so you can combine some sort of delay/reverb with the other 4 effects; for example you could have chorus with reverb but you can't have chorus and flanger at the same time.

yeah just look at a picture of the controls (probably one on the Roland site) and you can see how they divide it up.

Yep, cool amp, planning on buying one this end semester......... the 60 version is MUCH louder though......... since I'll be giggin in 50peeps venues, it'll come real handy....

Anyway, do you think it can handle shred tones...... the 30 and 60 ??
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

Cube 30s sound really good and the flanger, phaser effects can only be used 1 at a time because it has a rotary knob and they can really pack a punch volume wise but if you have a gig go for the 60
Ibanez and Fender rock

whats your definition of a good "shred" tone?

also, I prefer the 60 over the 30. I think it has a better sound when doing high-gain stuff. But yeah sure they both should do "shred" stuff really well.

I mean the "Metal" setting is modeled after the 5150, and the "Recto" setting is after the Mesa Rectifiers...soo there ya go lol

But personally, I really don't think the "metal" setting would be good for much. It sounds pretty awful.

Ok i havent read everyone elses posts ( i know im an ignorant Sod) But i'd say these amps are rubbish. School just bought two of them and i dont really like them that much, i mean the COSM tech is awesome with bigman (i think its called) especially.

but i personally think you should spend your money another amp like a cab and head from hartke or something. depends on your budget though....

^ ur wierd.

the Cube60 is the best sounding of them all IMO. The 'Metal' setting sounds a bit muffled or boxy sometimes...but if you EQ it right it sounds fine. Everything else sounds pretty much like it should...

Keep in mind its only a modeling amp...and it does a damn good job at sounding like it should.

^ Yeah, that's what I mean, it's too muffled for my liking. The R-fier Stack is my favourite, as well as the Black Panel for cleaner stuff.
#13
^ I much prefer the metal stack over the R-Fier stack, personally. I thick it sounds overall thicker.

The R-Fier sounds kinda buzzy and very trebely. With that said, I don't actually play much metal I mainly just use it for high-gain lead type sounds.

Meh, I like the buzzy sound, plus I play with a lot of bass and mids so it's not very trebly. But then I don't usually use the amp's built in distortion anyway.
