    Oh, and if it sounds a little higher than SRV it's because I forgot to tune down to Eb.

    Good job, Bird!
    It ain't perfect, but I can sure tell who you are emulating. I have also heard a killer SRV patch tweaked out of a V-Amp2. Pretty damn amazing that tube amp tones are getting so realistic coming out of a solid-state box.

    I'll give it some thought. I spent a lot of time building this patch and I'm not so sure I want to just give it away.

    You know, when you're onto to something good sometimes you're better off if you keep your mouth shut.

    Pretty please with sugar on top? By the way I saved your "tubby texas tone" as well. Hats off to anyone that's willing to post the results of their hard work. This stuff can be a real time saver. We could almost have a forum just to share patches.

    Quite impressive, 64FB!

    And very nice playing, too.

    Could you at least point us what your basic model/cabs were?

    Sounds like a J-Station. I play through one every week at my jam session... it's getting old for me quick. The distortion character with your sample is pretty much right on, but the way it sits there, just flat, in this really dull space... ughhh.

    Thumbs up

    Sounds like yer on the right track, it has a lot of SRV quality to the tone- as far as some of the above criticism, this sounds like a straight recording out of the J-box, it hasn't been slicked up (yet) with stereo imaging, reverb, delay, etc. so I think its a little unfair to compare it as it is to what you hear on commercial cds. I think it does sound a little Jstationistic; what is lacking to my old ears for the SRV thing is - a) its maybe just a tad too distorted b) it doesn't have that bit of metallic, clangy, focused quality that I don't have a clue how to achieve with the J Hole. Just fer fun, try the '65 tweed 1x12, and let me know what you think...
    My criticism of the J station is that most of the speaker/cab sims are too dark and muddy, I find myself using the '65 tweed 1x12, tweed 1x12, the ivy league 1x10, and the boutique 4x12 for all my amp sim patches - they seem more focused and realistic than the others, and have less speaker breakup. I recently aquired a Dano eq pedal ($30), and have just started experimenting with that on the front end to try and "clean" it up a little.
    I have to respectfully disagree with Sonusman as far as the in-the-mix thing, with my very limited experience, when I listen to the J Box alone, it just doesn't have the magic of playing thru a real amp, but sounds more realistic and convincing in the context of a mix. (at least with clean to moderately overdriven tones)

    I think it's fine. Unless you have the exact setup SRV had, you aint gonna get the exact sound. It's good enough to satisfy 99% of the listeners you'll run across. I guess I put myself in that group. I'm quite sure that was not a tweek here and a tweek there....it had to take quite a while to build. Good job.
