    This is a really basic patch but is the one I open most of the time if I'm just sitting down to noodle, which is why the reverb is a little excessively wet. Cab is available in the free Singtal pack so I don't have a problem including it in the patch.

    Patch opens w/ just amp, rvb and cab blocks enabled. The amp is set to be just a little crispy and cleans up completely with volume rolled off to 6 or so (at least on my HSS strat...pickups are roughly similar to a Shawbucker strat). FS1 activates the boost block ("overdrive" pedal set at lowish gain with a bit of boost), and FS2 activates compressor block which acts as a boost into the overdrive. The Soundcloud file is just...random crap to give a flavor of how I use the patch in going from clean up to full-boost back down to clean...hit FS1 to boost some, hit FS2 for more sustain. I actually normally use a Wampler Ego feeding into the Amplifire for that purpose, but, alas...I'm not sure how to include that in a saved preset :)

    This patch is great! It's cleans up so well with the guitar volume that I forgot I was on a dirty preset! ;) Gotta love that Kornfield model!

    Thanks - it's so simple. I always scratch my head a bit when people ask whether you have to tweak a ton to get a good sound. The plexi, 800, and BE can all be set up to work the same way, just a little tonal variety amongst them.

    Now that I think about it, delay might be assigned to FS3 in this one too - probably a lightly modulated tape or BB thing.

    Gotta say, I find I'm using this patch a ton for both les Paul and tele use. I dialed up the overdrive a bit, But other than that it's the same as you posted.

    Awesome. I just got the Amplifire tonight and hated all the presets. I downloaded your preset and that was the response and the tone I'm looking for out of the unit. It's shown me that I can get some killer sounds out of this box.

    This sounds awsome! Trimmed down the reverb a bit,gave it a little more gain and there was the dynamic sound I searched for! Brilliant! Thx so much for sharing!

    Just realized I had never commented on this. I've used this patch for weeks now and it really is great. Thanks Wyatt! Very nice patch.

    Glad folks are still digging this. I hesitated to share it at first - it seemed so simple, I'd never shared anything, and I don't consider myself much of a player. Glad it's brought folks some joy!
