I'm still trying to figure out a good way to organize mine.
And how many patches do you usually use?
I just have the ones I use most in the A group, then ones I would use following.
I shuffled patches around a few times already.
I will perhaps try to use the same system I used with my V-Amp 2, that is to create patches near each other based on the same amp. Basically try to emulate three channels, clean, crunch and lead by having patches next to each other for these settings. To use that during one single song on the G3 you probably need to stay in patch mode.
Since I like better to work the volume knob on the guitar to regulate gain (which the G3 responds well to) I will more likely try and find a good basic sound that covers as much ground from clean to high-gain that I can get on one patch. A few of those based on different amps and I'm set.
I will see how it works out in practice, I've only had mine for a couple of days so I'm still just messing around with the sounds and exploring.
Thanks for sharing, I'll have to try that.
I'm trying out keeping the same clean sound on A2/B2/C2, same crunch sound on A3/B3/C3, and then different effect combos switched on in the patches above and below them. So you have to hold down two switches to bank up or down to another set of effects, but the dry sound stays the same so you can cue a patch up without hearing random effects. Sure would be nice if you could disable autosave...
A2>clean Fender A1>Fender+Delay A0>Wah+Fender+Delay
B2>clean Fender B1>Phaser+Fender B0>Phaser+Fender+Delay
C2>clean Fender C1>Univibe+Fender C0>Univibe+Fender+Delay
A3>crunch Two Rock A4>Two Rock+Delay A5>Wah+Two Rock+Delay
B3>crunch Two Rock B4>Phaser+Two Rock B5>Phaser+Two Rock+Delay
C3>crunch Two Rock C4>Univibe+Two Rock C5>Univibe+Two Rock+Delay
I need some good ideas.
I use my standard Fender clean as "home base" with basic rock crunch being the next patch up. I have the clean variations ( acoustic sim, clean w/ chorus) below the Fender clean and the dirt patches above the standard one. For my gig, I can cover the majority of the material with either the standard clean or dirt and I have enough time ( in a large band like I play in) to move a few clicks for the next song or part of the song.
