    Hey guys, here is a shot at SLO model with Ownhammer FMAN IR. The SLO on previous firmware was really underwhelming (at least for me) or maybe i just didnt gave it a proper chance... I think the new SLO sounds way better. Here is pretty much basic settings on SLO model, pre cut on 300hz, bass is 2.2, middle 5, treble 5.2, presence is around 4, master is 3.3. IR is Ownhammer FMAN V30B OH1-06 (great IR pack btw). Enjoy!

    I'll need to give this a shot, especially with the pre cut. I also have the OH FMAN pack, I love it. The GNR pack also has a number of IRs I find myself using.

    Pre cut is imho essential with amps that have strong low end, or any amp that you want to make more tight. Yeah i love Fman and GNR packs, some great IRs in there... Also Mesa ST and Oversize are great too... I find myself using FMAN and Mesa ST V60 speaker most of the time, along with Mars CB V30...

    Apologies for such a noob question.....but when you say Pre cut, do you mean the Lowcut in the Pre-eq block?
    Sounds really nice! Have dialled the settings in, had to pre cut up to 500 for the "bottom boom", but may change (obviously)..will try it out on Monday, next rehearsal....playing through a Headrush FRFR-08.
    Have you tried it in a band setting? Does it cut through nicely?
    What pickups are they in the guitar?
    Using singtall warm M cab atm, it has a nice feel (imo)

    It is Pre EQ block. Do a low cut around 150-250hz area to tighten the amp. Now you can add bass using amp bass knob and it gives you fuller tone without beeing flubby.

    Nick I can't seem to find that Ownhammer. You sure it's V30B? Can you share the link to that? Thanks

    Good stuff here guys.
    The updated SLO is WAY better than the previous version!
    The LOW CUT in the Pre EQ is SO important!
    So are the AMP block Damping parameter and the CAB block
    High Frequency Roll Off.
    The Graphic EQ in the POST position for fine tuning is also nice.
    Cheers,
    Jace

    I dont know for you, but i like 0 damping in the amp block for most of my tones, and low(ish) master control on most of the amps.

    I rarely have the damping all the way to zero, but whatever works for you!
    My master settings are different for each amp model, but rarely is it ever
    set to 10 like many users do. It's usually between 5 and 8.
    I find that setting it all the way to 10 results in too much saturation
    and undefined tones. But again, to each their own!

    I’ve been setting the damping control to zero for all the Marshall and Friedman amps. For me, I get a juicer more saturated sound and feel with those amp models when damping is set low or zero. The master volume I’m keeping between 4-7 on most amps. With the SLO, boogies other high gainers I keep the damping on the default max setting which is I guess %100. I feel like when the lowering the damping I get a lot more resonance and highs...which in turn kind of scoops the mods a little. Anyone else hear that happen as well? Also the update to the SLO amp model is so much better than the original.
