Haven't gotten the chance to play around too much with the new firmware, but so far I really like it!  I thought I'd post a quick clip I made last night:

 

https://soundcloud.c...mware-tone-test

 

I thought the Strat sounded so good it made me dust off some SRV licks and play some blues :)  I was running the Strat neck pickup into a HD500 straight into an audio interface.  I was using the Dr. Z model with no external processing.  

 

Overall impression of the update was that the models were way more dynamic and lively.  I even noticed that on the acoustics.  I know they had already gotten the HD upgrade in a previous firmware, and it could be my imagination, but even they seemed to have a much wider dynamic range than before.  

 

I'm digging it, especially for a free update!

Sweet playing and nice wailing on the strat setting. Are you doing anything special with the Dr.Z (screamer, amp/cab DEPs) or just tweaked to taste?

Thanks for posting this.

Very nice playing, not to mention awesome tone! I'm loving the new Strat tones with 2.0 also.

Thanks!  

 

I just uploaded the patch to custom tone it's named Dr Z Overdrive.  

 

I'm using the Dr Z model with the Blackface 2x12 cab and the ribbon mic.  The master volume is cranked and the drive is on about 8ish I think.  For the first half of the clip I have a boost comp on and the second half I add a tube screamer with it.  I don't think I adjusted the DEPs much if any at all.  Other than to crank up the master volume.

Sorry about that.  Here's a direct link:  http://line6.com/cus...ne/tone/225606/

 

I'm not sure what's up with Customtone.  The only way I could find my own patch was by going to the my tones link.  I couldn't find it searching for it.  

 

If you open it the reason that the signal is split is because I'm using the effects loop to send the dry signal to a EHX Superego.  If you end up using this patch just do away with that part of it.  That part of the chain has nothing to do with the tone :)
