Hey Guys,

As you know the BOSS ME-50 got lots of stuff and I'm still confused over some, been playing around with it but IM just wondering if anyone with a ME-50 got Steve Vai's sound 100% in the Crying Machine? I really want to practice that song.

Thanks!

(The presets that come with it arent too good for anything :\)


PS: Any websites with list of helpful tutorial to tweak my ME-50 into diff sounds?

you cant get steve vais sound 100% on an ME 50, you need real equipment such as in this case an ibanez guitar with evo pickups and a legacy (or high end marshall) amp.
Fender American Deluxe Ash Stratocaster (2000)
Fender Classic Player 60's Stratocaster
Marshall JCM900 100w head & 4x12 cab

Korg DT-10 Tuner; Boss DD-3 Digital Delay; Jim Dunlop JH-1B Wah; Boss RT-20 Rotary Ensemble; MXR EVH Phase 90.

mess around with it, I don't know how to get the perfect vai sound, but i managed to get the ultimate linkin park sound, even though i don't like them that much

but the sound depends on the amp you are using, your amp is not that great I think, but i played the patches trough a Crate 15 W SS and it sounded pretty good...

Crate MX65R is it decent? I got it for $300 back then. Its got reverb+od built in which i dont use.
