    For obvious reasons, this is a pretty common topic in gear section. So, I think it would be a good idea to have a stuck thread to list amp settings. Please use the following format, and please treat knob setting like the face of a clock. Obviously, not all categories will apply to all amps.

    Brief Description
    Manufacturer & Model
    Channel, Mode, and Switches
    Channel Volume
    Presence
    Resonance
    Depth
    Bass
    Middle
    Treble
    Gain 1
    Gain 2

    So, for an example:

    Crunchy British Rhythm
    Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster
    Channel 2, Brit, 50w, recto tracking
    Volume 10:30
    Presence 11:00
    Bass 11:30
    Middle 10:30
    Treble 12:30
    Gain 2:30

    Go ahead and list all the setting for your amp in one post, but use a separate post for a different amp. Please keep this clean by going back and editing your post if you add new setting on the same amp.

    KEEP THIS FREE OF DISCUSSION. If you want to discuss setting with someone, send them a PM or start a thread about it.

    Sorry that was very long winded but it kept it easy to read... As for the stuff on that chanel I didn't mention, you can do yourself. I don't use wah so I have mine off. I don't use the effects loop for anything but my tuner, so that is off as well. I have additional EQ's running internally but I'm too lazy to write that out... The thing I love about this preamp is you can just tweek from "my settings: to get it sounding good with your guitar/cab, but if it sounds bad after messing with it you don't have to go back and redo everything. Just hit the program button and switch over to another channel then back and it back to where it was last saved at... It's like Playstation for guitar. If you like this setting though, be sure to hit the store button three times.


    P.S. The "Knobs" where there is nothing written, (In the above text) there isn't an option for that knob on the 2112.

    Crunchy and Meaty Mid Gain

    Mesa/Boogie F-30 combo
    CH2 + Contour
    Gain: 9:00-10:00
    Treble: 3:00
    Mid: 4:00
    Bass: 10:00
    Reverb: OFF (or up to 1:00 for bluesly lead shit)
    Master: 8:00 and up

    Notes: Works well with bridge humbucker as well as singlecoils for bluesly riffs.

    ----------

    Tight Metal Rhythm

    Mesa/Boogie F-30 combo
    CH2 + Contour
    Gain: 3:00
    Treble: 3:00
    Mid: 10:00
    Bass: 8:00
    Reverb: OFF
    Master 8:00 and up

    Notes: Slight adjustments with the Mid and Bass knobs affect the 'tightness' of palm mutes. Add or subtract depending on the guitar/PU's/etc...

    I don't know if it's appropriate to put up requests, but if anyone fancies adding some for 5150/6505's then it would be greatly appreciated

    Randall VMAX; Heavy rhythm/thick lead

    i dont understand the whole 'clock dial' thing, so my settings are from 1 to 10. seems more logical (no offence meant, i just didnt understand the other way)

    Tube Channel
    Voicing switch in (modern voicing)
    Graphic EQ on

    Gain: 8
    Bass: 8
    Mid: 4
    High: 9/10
    Presence: 7
    Level: 4

    GRAPHIC EQ ON, with following settings:
    50: 10
    250: 4
    750: 8
    1.2K: 7
    2.4K: 4
    5K: 10

    Master Presence: 7
    Master Density: 6

    Gives a real thick sounding grind when you dig into the strings. Theres also an optional gain boost that makes the tone a little more saturated, and adds a nice amount more grind to it, better for solid rhythm work though.

    Thick SS Rhythm:
    Sustain boost on
    Graphic EQ on

    Gain: 10
    Level: 5
    Bass: 6
    Mid: 5
    High: 10
    Presence: 8

    Master Presence: 8
    Master Density: 7

    Graphic EQ ON, same settings as above.

    Gives a far bassier sound, with a distortion more like a thicker, better sounding Digitech Death Metal Pedal. It definately has a sort of 'buzzy' quality to it, a little like the Rivera K Tre head. I use it with active pickups (blackouts) and theres still very little clipping on the SS channel, it sounds really raw and huuuuuge. Best SS tone ive ever heard :) (if i do say so myself...)

    Probably more rhythm settings, but theres nothing stopping you using them for lead, although that SS setting would get really muddy in a mix... (ive just never had to use it like that yet..)

    Unless you are a 'nu-metal' fan like me, then it is just perfect.

    5150II heavy modern rhythm tone

    Pre - 6
    Low - 4.5
    Mid - 7.5
    High - 6
    Post - 4ish
    Presence - 3
    Resonance - 5

    This is how I have mine tweaked, sitting atop a Vader 4X12. Of course, I also have a boost in front to push the tubes a bit harder.

    tight huge crunch on a mesa roadster

    channel four, modern. im a huge fan of the way the amp is voiced.. since im a mesa type guy.. its definetly not a scooped like or compressed traditional death metal tone, you cant really get that out of a mesa imo. but anyway. this is driven by a lordovchaos modded ts808 level all the way up, tone at 10oclock, overdrive at 0

    gain- between 12 and 1 oclock
    bass- between 11 and 12 oclock
    mids, between 10 and 11 oclock
    presence - 0
    treble- 12 oclock
    master volume - 11-12 oclock
    output - 1 oclock

    im using orange cabs and mesa 6l6 tubes for this.

    i use similar settings except switched to vintage for my lead tone i believe.

    Yeah so one thing I've discovered after owning the AT100 for a while...is that its not as bad as some folks would like to admit...there's a trick to it..

    This is my general tone. Its very Articulate. I'll put a vid up at some point.

    Preamp Volume: MAX
    Contour: OFF
    High: 2
    Mid: 2 or 3
    Low: 8
    Low Res: 8
    Gain: 6

    The amp is voiced strangely. The Mid control really is focused too high...its more like a high mid control...if you turn the contour off...1K actually becomes audible...and Mid range is your friend!

    Better tubes really helps to. I also use my quadraverb to boost the mids too...only slightly though. Hope this is useful to other AT100 users

    Here's my favorite tone dialed in on a triple. This is a dark, aggressive, and full rhythm sound. Very chunky-palm mutes are insane.

    Mesa/Boogie Triple Rectifier 150
    Channel 3, Modern, diode rectification, loop bypassed
    Channel Master 9:00
    Presence 7:30
    Bass 10:30
    Middle 11:30
    Treble 11:55
    Gain 2:00

    And a video with crappy crappy sound
