Re: Switching Options for Mark V90?

Don’t the 4 external switching jacks on the PCB10 switch the Mark V channels? Are they relay switches? If so you should be able to I would’ve though. I was able to set this up on the V with the TC GMajor 2.

Re: Settings to improve guitar volume control

it definitely has less gain at the same Tonestack settings but it does sound inherently more powerful, and has the gain if you crank Gain and Treble controls.

But agree, the name suggests just crazy levels of gain.

Re: Settings to improve guitar volume control

I’m sure there are great options using ch1 and 2, but this is the best example I’ve found from channel 3. Agree with previous posts that you may get the best result out of Extreme mode. Whenever I’ve tried c+ or IV mode it just didn’t do the trick.

Re: Mark V 90: no bass response?

This sounds typical to me - you should try the saturation mod (12AT7 in v4 and/or v6, as you like). Next to the more elastic overtone feel comes the ability to open up the presence, which will result in a better bass response. The IIC+ mode is given in the 'non-deep' configuration. The IV mode is g...

Re: Mark V 90: no bass response?

Hi Agree to APEMAN’s point - the Mark V c+ mode was modelled off the non-GEQ c+ which had a smaller cap at the end of the circuit. This acts as a high pass filter so it naturally does not have a lot of bass. The GEQ can be used more aggressively to compensate. The IV mode has the larger cap if I rec...

Re: Is anyone playing blues with a Mk IV?

As much as I enjoy blues, I’m not the best player at it. But expect it’s a matter of tweaking. And tbh, any of the channels could probably achieve a good blues sound but quicker best would be ch1 high vol1, reduce T, Presence and master. Or ch2 low vol 1 and whichever mix of TMB works best. This get...

Re: Add a Lead Master to your Studio 22? Yes or No?

I can’t comment on experience pre and post ad I only ever owned it with the mod. And it was killer. I can’t imagine not having the mod in there if you want a lead or rhythm tone with some gain.

Re: New JP-2C Owner - Question re lead tone

There’s be a number of factors at play: - guitar setup - string life Assuming the guitar side is fine, and isolating the amp: - do you use any FX? Delay on the lead tone helps extend its life. - what are your settings? You mentioned gain set to high and decent amount of treble. How high are we talki...

Re: Train of Thought settings

I think you’re more likely to get close to Train of thought by tweaking the tone controls rather than the GEQ (or both). If I recall he used a roadking for that so it has more gain bass and is less tight. If I were going for that I’d pull gain, treble around up 3 oclock, up the bass to around 11 and...

Re: JP2C FX8 MIDI programming help needed

Hi I found this thread on the fractal forum which may be of help. I haven’t used the FX8 before and based on my read appears limited in terms of midi sending however appears to be possible using CC messages and scenes functionality. https://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/fx8-with-mark-ii-jp-midi.113...

Re: JP’s tones on Distance Over Time

I love the leads. I've preferred rhythms on older albums. I don't necessarily think this is due to the amp, I think its more a combination of production, general change in settings over time and I'm also not huge on the baritone. The push presence on the JP2c is definitely a winner for the lead tone...

Re: Mark III blue stripe vs Mark IV??

Hey bud I only picked it up recently-ish (about a month ago) and still very much getting acquainted. As you know for anyone that's had a mark before it's easier enough to understand the tone controls and set bass low treble high etc etc, but it's another thing to understand how each of the pull pots...
