26 Ruin - Mesa Mark IIc+ EDITION
Eleven Rack Expansion Pack Required!
The philosophy of the RUIN rigs, is a bit different from other rig packs. Ruin rigs are setup to drop right into a mix with minimal mixing needed after. Of course this is not exact and personal preference plays a roll.
The Ruin Rigs employ 2 Parametric EQ's. EQ 1 (in FX1 slot) does the shaping of the tone, EQ 2 (in FX2 slot) is the module that gets the tone "mix ready". On EQ 2 there will be a Highpass (HP) and Lowpass (LP) set, but only the HP will be ON by default. To turn ON the LP, just click the TYPE button ONCE on the HF (high filter), that will select the LP6 filter, click again to select LP12, again to select LP24, or just use the drop down.
(I am referring to using the on-screen editor to choose the filter type)
These RUIN Mesa Mark IIc+ Rigs are setup to sound realistic. In setting up these rigs, I referred to the analysed frequency response of professionally recorded, mixed, and mastered Mark IIc+ tracks. And the frequency response of the Mark IIc+ in the Eleven Rack is almost exact (once EQ is applied).
The rigs are setup first with the amp/cab/mic only, and they are set to realistic settings. I suggest that you try playing the rigs with all effects OFF at least once. You may want to record with just the amp/cab/mic, then do all the EQing and other mixing later on. Or use the EQ's ON, it's up to you and what your mix needs!
The MOD slot is set to a Multi-Chorus. By turning this ON, you are essentially turning the rig into an "A is A" rig. If you are not familiar with the "A is A" rigs, look for the explanation on one of the A is A pack downloads. When just playing with these rigs I like to turn on the Multi-Chorus, it results in a great, wide sound, like a faux double tracking of guitar. I may set the HP and LP to the -6 setting while playing as well. Try it out in different combinations, you can even record with it ON if you want, it's a great sound.
"L" means "LEAD" These rigs are extra saturated and have more reverb for a super lush lead tone. Adjust to your liking.
"c" means "CLEAN" These are Clean rigs, not distorted. Some may be slightly overdriven.
