CoolJazz Settings
by Billg66 on 2012-10-19 11:22:42.9530

Hi!  I'm new to the forum. Just bought a Spider IV 75 and would like to know if anyone can help me with a Cool Jazz sound (mellow tones)? I have one I saved that is OK, but I'm sure  I could improve on it.

I'm using  the Clean Green Model. Thanks.....Bill G

Clean Green is a good start.   A lot of the 'jazz' sound is based on the guitar used - are you using a hollow-body or semi-hollow body with humbuckers?  You can add a little 'Drive' for warm distortion, adjust EQ based on your guitar, and maybe a little bit of chorus.

Thanks. What I found is the following adjustments seem to work: Song "Unexpected Jazz" - Mode Clean Red - Drive 20% - Bass 50% - Mid 60% - Treble 60% - Channel Volume 50 % -  FX1 Auto Red Low - Reverb 0  - Master 30%

I'll try your suggestion. If you have a Spider IV 75 try mine............Thanks for the reply
