Hi everyone,

I've searched the forum but couldn't find any thread about this...If there's one please give me the link and accept my appologies.

Anyway, i have a Boss gx-700 guitar processor and I want to create a distortion similar the most possible to what Adam jones from TOOL uses in Lateralus album, for example in the song "lateralus" or "parabola".

If anyone has this equipment and has the settings please share them with me!

Btw, I'm working with headphone now but I usually play with a Spider 212 Line-6 AMP.

Tks a lot


sorry if this is in the wrong place...:/

most likely your gonna have to get a new amp as Adam uses a combo of three amps that are very expensive his tone isnt easy to get with out a very good Dark hi gain amp the spider wont cut it.

I've got a GX700 but I don't use it for distortions.

Do you use the pre amp settings or just the distortions?
You may be able to get a similar distortion sound then fine tune it with the built in EQ
but like Syn said he uses expensive amps so you probably wont be able to replicate it with the kit you've got.

Tks for helping. You're right but I have some faith that's possible to get a similar sound because in the past I had a BOSS ME-33 unit, wich isn't so good as the gx-700 and I remember i got a very good sound from it...but it's getting a bit hard with the GX-700...

The GX700 is a good unit.
I used to think it was a bit Mickey Mouse but since I've redone my rig and learned to use it I'm more impressed and I've decied to keep it in my rack.
Do you run this preamp through the effects loop of your amp?
I would suggest you find out what amp he used on the recording and see what preamp settings are similar on the Boss. Set this up like a amplifier (Tone controls etc) then if
your not getting enough gain try adding some overdrive etc. Then when you think you've roughly got the gain similar start playing with the eq.

Best of luck its a bit of a job because you have a lot of options for tone on that unit. Would probably help a bit more if you were running it through a valve power amp.

foot controller. Its going to be a headf**k

I keep on putting it off. I put it all into my new 8u Case last night so I'm slowly getting there.
I think I've decided on the pedal configuration and that I'm going to have a seperate channel for each unit I've just got to get the Behringer to do what its told!!
Does'nt help when I start to do it I end up playin instead!
