I just upgraded from the Line 6 Floor POD plus to the Boss GT-8 pedal. Its got a much steeper learning curve and I'm a little overwhelmed by all the features! Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for manually setting up my rhythm and lead channels. A good reference for the lead I'm looking for would be Avenged Sevenfold. Syn's lead sounds amazing on their last two cds (well actually all their cds). For the rhythm I want something heavy but not muddy, and with a lot of sustain. I know thats sort of vague but I'm really just wondering what kind of preamp/distortion settings people use so I can try different things.

Search for the GT8 patches thread.
