DIALING TONES FOR AT THE GATES - AX8 preset download
How. Do you like my face when I'm setting. The tension on my evertune, bridge guitar. What's. Up ladies, and gentlemen of youtube. I'm homeland. And today I'm. Very excited, because I, have, a special omission, that I got from a, little metal, band called at the gates they. Are using. Fractal. Ax8. Pedals, after. I recommended. Them and, they. Asked if I could set up their live sound, and you. Know I'm a good guy I say, yes so of course I'll help them out a little bit not, because I'm a big fan of the band it's. Just that I I'm a nice guy that's just how it is it's yeah. Exactly, so this, video will be showing. Me. Setting. Up an axe 8 sound, from, scratch so. What they've told me is that they need a very basic type of preset. That, has a rhythm, tone a clean. Tone I'm. More broken up kind of tone more with a little, bit a clean with a little, bit more gain than the lead tone so, basically. It's what, I already have, when I play with the Haunted and. The. Way they're gonna hook it up and the way I hook it up with the hornet is that I bring the. Axe a pal and then I hook it up to an effects, loop of an amplifier like, this one around Satan, I think they're gonna use pv, amps so, it will be a little bit different but I'm, hooking, it up to the effects loop of the roundel statements on using a power amp section of the Satan into a cabinet and then they mock it up live but, I'm also gonna do a direct. Sound with, an impulse response, so, worst, case scenario, if they get to a gig where. For some reason they cannot use, amplifier. Or you know cabinets, and microphones. They can go direct to front of house and have as good, sound as if they would use a cab, and a powerup so. Yeah. I'm gonna start it will you see how this video fares I have no idea how this will end up I don't have a strategy so. Yeah. We'll just see how it goes but, before I start doing this video I, urge. You, to, subscribe, to my channel please help, a guy out okay I put a lot of effort into making these videos if you like him please subscribe, and push. That Bell button down there as well to get the notifications. Whenever I upload a video and yeah. I'll wait for a little bit and you subscribe, okay. Okay. Thank you so, let's, start up at. The. Pat the gates. At. The, gates so, and then we also have to have QuickTime, available, so you will see what I'm doing. When. I'm adjusting. Adjusting. The, preset, the. Acquirements, bailing that's where it is okay. Let's do this what. I have right now is my main preset, for the haunted which, is basically one preset, containing, four different, scenes, this. Is the, son of the Haunted preset. And. As you can see the. Way I have it set up is that I have a single. Path going like this and then. Over. Here you can see there's a cab impulse, response, that goes to the main output basically but before that I have a small little signal, path going to the effects loop output so this is where I hook. Up the effects loop of an amplifier so.
Basically. I have two different outlets okay one, without the cabinet impulse response and one with okay, so yeah. Okay. Let's start. With, save. To, a new preset, number, because. That's what I do yeah. Can. I what. Save. Our. Youth, are you sure yes, I am and, let's. Call it de. Add, the. Gates. Preset. Maybe. I'll share this okay, and. Worth mentioning is that I've been listening to the new at the gates album, just to get a type. Of idea on how the sound is gonna be like and. For. Them it's more about being you, know more. Thick, and, you. Know chunky. Maybe not necessarily as tight that's like the. Sound I go for when I play with the haunted so, it's, gonna be a Gainey type of sound and I'm I, kind of have a good idea on how, it's supposed to sound so let's just hope I find something. Of, course it will be a little bit different too because obviously they're, not using Satan's for, their their effects loop and they're not using Duncan. Solar pickups they're using solar guitars, by the way but, they're using a, special. Model that has Fishman pickups in it so they have active, pickups so, let's start off I want to go fresh, so let me try something completely. New. And see what's up. Okay. Recto. Red too modern, maybe. Not. They. Used a PV Herbert I'm on the food Osama so let's see, if we should go with that. I think. We have to reset, the amplifier let's do that, can. I shut. Who. And, that's too much. Okay, let's let me try not around before I see it we find something okay. Angel. Sit here. Coward. All, right I kind, of fell in love with this dust medal. Okay. Let me hear how it's salsa. Pretty, good. Okay. Let's talk let's start there okay. Okay. So what, I'm after is to make a sound that. Depending. On the power amp that the gates are using, that, they can change the amp settings just by using these knobs up here and that, they do not have to go inside and. Edit. Inside, the ax8 so, let's. See if we can. It. Seems like it works. Okay. Let me see the lead. See. How that fares. Definitely. Too much the way. So. What I'm doing here on my lead tone this is copy from the Haunted preset that I have is that I activate, a driver, and the compressor, just to add even. Just. To add even more game, to. The, the. Amplifier, and the lead tone and. I'm. Also adding. EQ. A parametric, EQ afterwards, that, has just, one DB, added, game but it should be a little, bit more just as a you know a lead boost let. Me see if I have something here oh it's just for that okay so I can. Shut. Up a. Little. Bit too much of D let's. See. Can. I do this. Do. A little peak. Peak. Yeah. I'm just pulling. Down around, three. And four fosston hurts just, to make it a little bit more enjoyable to listen to the lead tone otherwise it's gonna peak. Okay. Save. Let. Me see okay. So. So. Going from scene one which is the rhythm. To. Lead. It. Can use a little bit more boost that's for sure. Almost. 5 dB let's try that. And. The reason why I'm not using another. Amp block is because. We're. Not a preset, with, another different, type of amplifier for, the leads is. Because, if you change between presets. There's a slight lag inside. The presets, and but. If you keep the, same app block and. Switch. Scenes instead. You won't get that. Small. Little, hiccup. In between, presets. So. That's, why I keep the same map and then just you know try to sculpt, the sound the rhythm sound into, a lead sound instead a. One, thing I wanted to try out before, I venture into the clean is, to see if they have, can. I remove, the pitch here because I don't think they they. Need that okay. That, removes a lot of the CPU. Processing, so but. What I wanted to try out was. One, of the enhancer. Thingies. And see if it makes it different.
What. I think the enhancer, does is basically doubling. The signal making a little bit wider sounding, but, the. Change. Is very slight. I'll, leave that in there if they want to use it they can use it okay, save. This okay. Let's try to clean them. And. As. You can see I'm, using a, little. Bit of drive compressor. Chorus. And. The. Amp, in, Y. Mode and for. That I'm using the USA, pre clean so. And. If I switch off the drive it becomes a lot more cleaner. Maybe, ask for this one sounds good okay. Let's, see if we can find another clean, amplifier. It's. This. Plexi. Maybe. I. Usually. Go for defender cleans. Let's. See if I find one. Yeah. Look but the concert, or the tweed, bass. Guy let's try this one. That's. Nice. All. Right that's, cool I think that took wanna. See the camera okay. So I'm almost like, 15, minutes, 50. Minutes okay. Into this and yeah, I think it sounds pretty good now. The. Real challenge here, is to hear, how, they. Actually sound with this priests and using Fishman pickups and you know other. Fingers, down my own and I'm, not a power and for sure so it'll definitely take a little bit of after, tweaking, of the preset, when, they get everything set, up and they try everything out in in, in a life situation of, course so yeah. I'll. Definitely share, this preset, with you guys if you liked it and, yeah. Be sure please, be sure to subscribe my channel, don't be a douchebag subscribe. And if you like this video put a thumbs up, and. And. Okay. Guys thank you so much for watching see you next time.
