This video I believe is the best example I can provide of this tone I'm trying to match (or at least get one similar to it):
Quick run-down of my gear:
Line 6 Guitarport
Jackson SLV soloist guitar
I even spent the $50 on the Metal Shop amp pack in an attempt to find the tone I'm looking for. Now, before anybody points this out to me, I am aware that the uploader of the YouTube video addressed in the comments section what settings he used to achieve this tone. I have tried these in Gearbox and had no luck.
Here is a screenshot of me trying to follow these settings in Gearbox: http://postimg.org/image/gy0l688ej/
Threshhold on Compressor is on 60, gain on 0. Threshhold on Noise gate is on -50dB, decay is 28%. I'm really not very good at this, so feel free to laugh at my ignorance here. But could anyone give me a hand? I just keep adjusting the settings and adjusting them over and over, but I'm not having any success and it's really beginning to frustrate me and make me feel stupid.
