    So I have been messing around a little - with code 25 I got yesterday -thank goodness I didn't get the 50- the 25 rarely goes above 3 on volume - way more than loud enough for bedroom practice -traded in blackstar beam - a good amp but for me missing that something "extra"

    I play a lefty Jackson with stock humbuckers - I like a good heavy but articulate tone -
    tubescreamer driving a gain channel etc.Think 80s metal - Not modern metal but sustainy harmonic with no flub on the lower strings -

    Here is a general discovery I have made thusfar that may or may not help others :

    1) preamp - I like to dial back the presence or resonance to 3 or less I find this helps with articulation and chunk on lower strings
    Classic Marshall is my fave so far and american Classic

    2)fx- less is more like the guy that started this thread maybe .1 or .2 and then push the tone to 6 or more and the level to 3 to 6
    Prefer Dist or od
    - this does work for the articulation at least for me .

    3)Amps - jcm 800 and jubilee are nice and plexi -my faves so far - for cabs growing very fond of the 1912 combo

    4) eq - bass 6 max , mids 2 to 5 , treble 7 or more

    5)gain - start at zero with the fx stomp on
    And dial to the right until you hear the gain kick in leave it there or slightly less
    Again less is more


    These settings allow me to dial in that sustainy , harmonically rich yet articulate sound I like - hope this is of help to people having a challenge getting the 80s van halen / ozzy/ scorpions tones if that's a goal ..

    Dude that's awesome, thanks so much. I start playing along with a song and think, "that XYZ preset would be perfect for this" but then I can't remember the number! This will help tremendously.

    This isn't based on anyone in particular, just a dirty JCM800 tone I really liked. I'll try this at rehearsal this week but I'm expecting it to be my main tone, perhaps interchanging with the Plexi tone used for Sweet Child on the first page of this thread.

    Pre amp: JCM800
    Power amp: Marshall 100w
    Cab: 1960V
    Presence 6.9, Resonance 1.1
    FX: Distortion: Guv, Drive 1.5, Tone 5.0, Level 5.0.
    Room Reverb, 3.0 decay, 3.0 pre-delay, 2.1 tone, 2.1 level

    Gain 2.1, Bass 7.3, Volume 7.4, Middle 5.3, Threshold 2.5, Treble 5.9

    Hope you guys like it, and if you have any improvement suggestions I'd love to hear them!

    Does anyone else find the JCM800 preset really good as it is? The regular one, not dirty or heaven etc. I used it at rehearsal last night and it sounded amazing.

    I think some of them are edited see Column M for items 71 & 72 have definitely changed from factory.

    I have been trying to put them into my own spreadsheet and noticed that some of the other settings are not factory either but I can't remember which ones at the moment.

    I think Andy has done a great service to many people. I for one have found it much easier to understand the settings in this form and to also understand the basics of the panel and the app functions. The manual is a good start, but for people like me - haven't used an amp in more than 30 years and then only had a single wah wah pedal to boot - then this list is a great additional tool.

    Thanks Andy

    to confirm--
    71-72 are my own clean and dirt patches, i tried to get all other patches as they are on my app, I might have made a mistake, sorry, but i'm not going through it to correct--I welcome any ammendments though--really hoping Marshall get the app / pc/ mac software updated ,
    I'm waiting for the footswitches to be released before i get any deeper into patch editing-i'm happy with what i got for now.
    cheers guys

    I took the PDF that Andy K uploaded and converted it into a spreadsheet (for my own use) and loaded some of the patches published here in it as well.
    Hope this is useful for someone. I'm still trying to get hold of the MIDI implementation to build a PC interface. Just don't like the Gateway app.

    Couldn't upload an excel file so Zipped it, which worked.
    The color coding on the FX is based of the Line6 M13 which I used to use for live. (yellow for drive/compressor, blue for MOD, green for Delay, and red for Reverb)
    The things that one remembers :)

    Keep this up folks, love the sharing.
    James
