I have the same amp. Minus the XLR's >__<

Btw, have you got any nice distorted or clean sounds outta it? I dont have a midi thing as of yet so I'm at a bit of a loss as far as sharing sounds is concerned. If you do it'd be great if you can put some of the settings to get the sounds up.

Cheers!

Yeah I have obtained what I consider my main 3 settings I use on most of the stuff i play.

1st channel is clean with the slightest warmth of tube emulation. I am using the "Black Panel" setting. This emulates a "1965 Fender Deluxe".
2nd channel is my channel I toy around with laugh.gif
3rd channel is my blues distortion channel. Sounds ALOT like Gabriel's "Blues Get that Shuffle" but a bit warmer and with the Fattened Up delay. This channel rocks and allows you to go from warm blues to blues/rock just by bringing my guitar volume from 8 to 10. This uses the "Brit Classic" which emulates a "1968 Marshall Plexi 50 Watt" Head.
4th channel is my rock/metal channel and uses the "Rectified" setting which is an emulation of a "1994 Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Tremoverb Combo". This can distort and sustain forever. Not quite chunky enough for anything heavier than Metal.

And of course I spent hours tweaking the sounds I currently use. It takes a lot of time without the PC interface to perfect the sound. dry.gif

Once I get my Midi cable I will save these and start adding all the ones i've been discovering with channel 2. I will also post the saved settings so people with Pod's, Flextones, or Vettas, can try them out. smile.gif

Cool, tried the rectified its pretty powerful! Your sig says you upgraded and its not got an XL marked bit on it? How did you manage that? I realise its just a matter of plugging stuff into the circuit board but where do you get the bits?

I purchased it as an "Upgraded" version. What they basically did was upgrade the ROM so that the corrections they made to a few of the models for the Flextone III and Vetta's would be incorporated into this unit. Also they upgraded the speakers from generic "Line6" speakers to Celestion speakers. Unfortunately I do not think you can get this done... only the last year or so of these came from the factory like this. The Flextone III is an exact clone of my Flextone II with slight interface adjustments.

Oh and my sig should say XL. Thanks!

Yeah, I have the celestions and I think my patches etc are pretty up to date, I was just wondering if it was possible to add the xlr's at a later date, obviously not, cheers anyway! biggrin.gif
