Is the RP355 capable of producing a tone close to Mark Knopfler's Sultans of Swing solos?
I just can't seem to get it right;
is there a patch for this somewhere out there already?

WOW, Amazing, Incredible, Awesome - that's pretty close, - and really fantastic work on the strings!!

Not sure what guitar you are using, but besides the fact that you are obviously an accomplished musician, it must make a bit of difference in the tone when using my little Ibanez ART100.

I activated the pickup to single coil and adjusted the gain a bit higher to my liking.

Hey, and a big thanks also to Olerabbit for the links

Cheers

Thanks, man, that was a fun tune to learn. I'm not that experienced playing without a pick. I tried tackling the outro solo too, but it was way beyond me. :( The guitar was my '97-98 57AVRI Strat, using the middle pickup, a DiMarzio Area 67. If I had to do it over again I would increase the Level of the CS Comp a bit to bring a little smoke out of the amp sim. A lot will depend on how hot your pickups are. Also, I couldn't quite get enough sparkle no matter what amps or cabs I tried. I just noticed that the Presence was at 0dB, which is weird, I thought I had it maxed out! Anyway, I would suggest maxing it out.
