hey, I'm constantly playing along to songs with my guitar, and I really want to get some good sounds on my pedal, but I'm not an expert at making sounds... So could I have some suggestions for making some good sounds? Like EQ settings, what distortion I should use, noise gate, all that stuff. And I'm mostly trying to find good sounds for bands like Protest the Hero, and August Burns Red, and The Devil Wears Prada. So, help, please?

you mostly just have to mess around with it, you know get a good sound and then move on from there. i have an RP250 and i have my bass almost all the way up, middle about halfway up, and treble halfway down on the equalizer. noise gate just takes away feedback when your not playing, i suggest it on. as for the rest, just cycle through the various amps and distortions until you have one that sounds good. hope i helped!

bubbaearl, I've already been there, but the sounds are really not that great. Thanks anyway. And teknotard, I have an Epiphone Sg-G400 and a cheap fender, and I have like this 10 watt marshall, a peavey TKO 65 bass amp, and I also have a mixer with a PA system.

well, i didnt get a reply to my question. but this is what i would do
Dual rectifier with bass at about 7 or 8 the mid scooped to about 3 and the treble up high.

Or go through the clean amp and mess around with the metal zone.

Do you know if it is possible to make a preset with the RP-500 and have it be compatable with the 150 cause then i can make you a preset with edit

EDIT: Just saw your post i use a les paul so it should have similar tone to the SG
