It’s been a while since I released the 2020 pack, and although I put out the Morgan amps and Grammatico packs, this is the follow up to the 2020 pack. To celebrate the year of the ’21’ (and just in the nick of time), I preset to you, the Blackjack Pack. As with most of my multi-amp packs, it basically is a chronicle of the amps that I’ve profiled in the last year or so. Sometimes I find something on my own and sometimes cool amps just find their way to me. I try not to repeat myself, so I’m always just trying to find things I haven’t already profiled but I also want to be conscious of finding sounds that I/we can use.
For this pack, I profiled amps that range from vintage and modern Mars (77 jmp combo, Sur SL68) to more scarce boutique amps (Badbot, Comet, Match phx) to old tried-and-true amps (AC15, 50 Cal, tweed b-man). All in all, there are 150 rigs from 14 different amps. It’s quite a large pack but as with most of my multi-packs, I like having a wide enough variety so that if you only buy this one pack, you can cover most of your needs. If you’re looking for blackface or tweed CA tones, they’re in here with the Swolt, Masa, and Shah amps. If you want gain tones, you have the 77 Mars, SL68, Rokman, and Comet for variety. If you’re looking for more ac-style tones, there is the AC15 and Match PHX. Those are most of the basic “food groups”.
In addition to the 150 rigs, I loaded 7 ready-to-play Performances. Details can be found on the additional information provided on the product page and heard in the video demo. Most of the Performances cover your basic clean to lead tones, from left to right as you go through the slots. A couple of them are just collections of song-specific or random (hopefully) useful tones. Since most of my rigs in the pack are streamlined with few effects programmed, these performances allow me to be a little more creative and liberal in my use of fx. There are some fun sounds to be sure, and you can also save the fx programmed in them to use with some of your other rigs if you like them.
