Lightbulb Blog: Modern Plexi

I just posted a new blog (with presets) about how to get a more "modern" Plexi tone using the RB-01b Blue channel, kind of along the lines of some of the various modded circuits out there.

Chris I believe you mentioned in the past that the Boost control on the RB corresponds to different boost/excursion/whatever settings on the amp you modelled. Can you post anymore detail about that?

Ratter, here are the details from the ERXP Read Me:

Boost Simulates the Boost and Structure switches on the original amp. Setting Boost to 10 simulates both Boost and Structure switches on. A setting of 5 simulates Boost on/Structure off. A setting of 0 simulates both switches off.

And here's a link to the Read Me pdf:

Chris - These rigs sound excellent! I'm not quite sure what the Para EQ's are doing... seems as though there's a very small low end roll-off around 80hz, but where's the treble adjustment?

Either way, sounds great and I'm enjoying having a plexi rig without the swirl! :)

Peace,
Mike

Whale, glad that worked for you. The Modern Plexi VH has the bright filter set flat because that's what happens when the gain is dimed on a real Plexi. The Modern Plexi Crunch has less gain, and band four of the Para EQ has some treble boost to account for this bright filter.

i tried the modern plexi preset and cranked the gain some. awesome! i found that it does the King's X tone easily, along with just about anything else i ever wanted.

thanks man, this is the sh*t!
