Korg A3 settings for Amib2005 BTs

Hi guys,
I'm opening this thread to share some of mine A3 settings for Amib2005 backing tracks. Giank, a forum member, asked me to share some of my settings and I think it could be a good idea to share them with you all. These settings are not perfect, they are custom made with just the A3, fc6 pedal board with 2 korg kvp01 pedals connected to it (one for volume, one for expression) and spc01 card. I would appreciate any comment to make them better sounding.

The first song I'm gonna share is KITE, because I've a cover of it on my Youtube channel (YouTube - Mr7cs's Channel) so you can listen to it and check if you like my sound.

I'm using a Vox AD30VT set to emulate AC30TB. The following is my equalization for KITE and for all moderate distortion sounds, from now on I'll call it VOXEQU1.

Gain 2 (o'clock), Volume 12, Treble 5, Middle 2, Bass 10.
Master as you like (my choice at home is 1 o'clock).

A3 settings are:

Chain A1 from the spc01 card

TOD 74 100 0 0.55 0 0
XCIT 5 1.9
DLY1 370 5.0 -35 22 null 30

Just this, I never change effects during the song. I use the middle pickup on my strat for the whole song except for the solo which is done in the middle-bridge position. Edge plays this song on a LP, I think he does the very beginning of the song and the solo with the bridge pickup and the rest with neck pickup, probably a bit of volume changing during verses...or probably he alternates the verse slide part from B and G strings at the beginning and then G and D strings when Bono starts to sing. Try what sounds better to your ears.

Other songs are coming in the next days.

p.s. Giank, I hope this is what you were looking for. Enjoy!

City Of Blinding Lights

COBL

I use my stratocaster on middle/bridge pickups. The AD30VT is on VOXEQU1 settings. Never forget the upside down herdim picks!!!

The synt sound for the intro is:

Chain 13

XCIT---15----6.2
MDL1---500---5,5----35-----3,40---2----64
PTCH---(-10)
SDLY---370---65----400------65----0 ---50
SDLY---400---75----300------75----0----72

This is what I play (Eb tuned) with a very light regular downstroke picking:

b-10-10-10-8-8-8-15-15-15-14-14-14-10-10-10-8-8-8-10-

Listen to the song to figure out when to change.

The patch for the song is:

Chain 01

COMP 68----2----76
OVD1 66----64---3.20----3---10.0----null
DLY1 320---3.0----40----6----null-----42
FLN1 0,20---62---(-65)---0----0.2-----40
HL1 1.8----26----40-----4---(-3)-----8

The patch for the solo is the same as above, only changes the OVD1 to

DST2----88----28----4.00----5----3.50----null

Effects in the chains which are not written means that are off.



p.s. Giank, to play at home the AD30VT is the best choice. You need to emulate the AC30TB to play U2...and what should be better than a Vox to emulate another Vox! It is also very cheap! But if you want to play in front of an audience you better start to save your money to buy an AC30!

Mysterious Ways

When you google for U2 and Korg A3 always comes out the spc01 preset 76 "Funk Wah" for Mysterious Ways... but you don't need just this sound to play MW, there's another sound that you need from the verse before the Adam's Bass solo, then for the guitar solo and up to the end of the song.

So let me introduce you to my VOXEQU2, which is my AD30VT setting for this and other distorted songs.

AD30VT set to emulate AC30TB

Gain 3/4 (o'clock), Volume 11, treble 5, middle 2, bass 8.
My choice for Master at home is always 1 o'clock.

I use this ampli setting for the first part of the song too (when the preset 76 is on...actually I've tweaked a little on the one I use).

And this is the patch I use for the second part of this beautiful song

Chain A1

HDST----80----50----10----0.80----6----3
XCIT----20----1.9
DLY1---460----0.0---15------2----null---28
FLN1---0.20---62---(-65)----0-----0.2---40

I know this is a song for Rickenbacker 330/12 but I play it on my stratocaster, for this patch my choice is bridge pickup.

Come round here for more custom patches made using the famous "earmetric" method, Folks!!

Even Better Than The Real Thing

I've got 5 minuts free so I post another patch.

Just to keep on with Rick 330/12 beautiful rock and roll songs this is the patch for EBTTRT.

Stratocaster on middle/bridge

AD30VT with VOXEQU1

Chain 05

COMP---32---12---100
OVD1---64---54---3.60---9---3.50---null
DLY1---380--6.0---30----6---null---34

If you don't have a whammy pedal (as I suppose) you can do the intro playing this:

e---------------10---10
B-----------------------
G-----7----7-----------
D-----0----0-----------

If I remember right from the solo up to the end of the song I switch to the bridge pickup. Give it a try.

See you

Beautiful Day

Today in Italy is a Beautiful Day.

AD30VT with VOXEQU1.
Strato on Middle/Bridge pickups.

For this song I use a Boss FZ2 pedal in "Gain Boost" mode before the A3. I set the gain knob to zero, so it works like a clean boost. This is to emulate the Boss FA1 pedal (they're both from Boss and the sound is quite similar). To do this you can: buy a Boss FA1, buy a clone, buy a Boss FZ2, use an overdrive pedal with gain set to zero, tweak on the XCIT of the Korg A3.
Here are my patches:

for the palm muted beginning, the verse arpeggio and the Middle8 (or Middle16 in this case?)

Chain 01

COMP---18---20---22
OVD2---38---54---5.40---9---2.50---null
DLY1---440--1.0---35---10---null---24

For the power chords and chorus riff

Chain 01

COMP---same as above
OVD1---64---44---6.00---9---3.50---null
XCIT---0---3.1
DLY1---same as above

I use this patch for the pitch shifted part too. I don't have a whammy pedal so I shift the notes two octave up on the fretboard. If I remember right this is what I play:

e--18--15--18--15-----------------------------------------------------
B----------------------18--16--18--16------------------------------------
G------------------------------------------17--15--17--15--17--15--17--15--

repeat two times.

... and that's it!

Hi, guys.

Until The End Of The World

Until The End Of The World

For this song I use my "Vantage" brand (made in Japan) humbucker guitar on Bridge pickup.

This guitar has got a very fuzzy, metallic, nervous sound so I've made my A3 settings to suit this character. Here's a clip

Edge LP has got a warmer and richer tone that I can't fit on my guitar. Try my settings on your instrument and tell me which kind of sound you produce.

AD30VT on VOXEQU1

For Intro

Chain A7

HDST---80---60---0---3.40---0---7
LDL1---430--2.0--20--4---null---30

For Verse

Chain 01

COMP---54---10---100
OVD1---64---74---8.00---9---3.50---null
DLY1---430--2.0--12---2---null---10

For Solo and Outro

HDST---80---60---10---0.80---3---2
LDL1---570--7.0--20---4---null---36

Bye

Hi guys,

for WTSHNN I use the Boss FZ2 as described above for Beautiful Day.
AD30VT is setted for clean sounds. This is my 3rd and last equalization for the ampli. I call it VOXEQU3.

AD30VT set to emulate AC30TB.

Gain 10 (o'clock), Volume 5, Treble 5, Middle 2, Bass 8.
Master at 1 is still my choice.

Chain 09

COMP---18---20---22
OVD2---9----80---5,40---9---2,50---null
MDLY1--350--3.0---40---3,40---2---44

I use this same setting for I Will Follow too. I just put the ampli on VOXEQU1 and set delay time on 200 msec.

Wow, these are really cool! It'd be even cooler if I had an A3 and a VOX amp. I'll be checking out some of those vids. Thanks for sharing man!
