Quote from: aliensporebomb on February 22, 2015, 01:13:34 PMTry my lush jazz patch and add some delay or ambience to it, that might work.

Now_&_ThenPostPosted: Mon Jan 14, 2008 2:39 pm Can anyone get a good Howard Roberts tone out of the 99? Now_&_ThenPostPosted: Mon Jan 14, 2008 2:44 pm You know, it might be a good idea to make this thread a sticky, and to ask people to post any patches done by requests from this thread, in a separate thread. I am not sure if that is clearly stated. In other words, I just requested a Howard Roberts patch. If someone makes such a patch, they would then post their "reply" not in this thread in a new thread in the VG-99 Patches subforum. So this thread will contain ONLY patch requests. And a mod could mark each "answered" patch request as being answered.dead_lizardJoined: 13 Jan 2008Posts: 66Location: Newcastle, AustraliaPostPosted: Tue Jan 15, 2008 1:17 amI wish to create a patch to recreate Lenny Kravitz's "Are you gonna go my way". I need some help with this. Am at the point where I am about 40% comfortable with my '99. When I finally sold my '88 I feel as though I was at about 90% (never really used the midi side of things, couldn't really see the point if all I could ultimately do with it was change patch parameters).The plan is this:* I intend to use a few adjacent patches for different parts of the song. Basically using each pedal as a stomp box. (it is here that I miss the Zoom 8080's reverb/delay overlap function...no cut notes, no jarring transitions). The reason for this is that I also want to recreate the stereo placing of the guitar. (another gripe....stereo amp models could achieve this effect much better, but anyway)* Amp and distortion pedal....which ones?* EQ damping for verses to avoid clouding the vocal (perhaps I could assign a pedal)*Octave pedal for low guitar harmony....real guitar on Right, octave guitar on Left* Cleanish amp with mono phaser for middle section* A toggle switch which goes from on to off, (or an approximation of this since the cosm toggle switch does not work in two independent halves like a real Gibson.)*Perhaps a wah for the soloWill post what I have got so far when I figure out how to exchange individual patches.... mos6507PostPosted: Tue Jan 15, 2008 1:35 am Post subject: Reply with quoteKravitz is in the "Helden" patch elsewhere on the forums. It doesn't give you the whole song but it's a starting point.Back to top dead_lizardPostPosted: Tue Jan 15, 2008 3:17 am Post subject: Reply with quoteOK here's a couple more....Beatles: Savoy Truffle soloLed Zep: Rain Song (studio version)fxbuffPostPosted: Wed Jan 16, 2008 9:34 pm Post subject: Craig Chaquico patch request Reply with quoteHi guys,Brand new here, VG99 and Godin xtsa on their way! Can't wait. Would ultimately like to simulate the acoustic style Craig Chaquico sound.Thanks!GlenhausmannPostPosted: Thu Jan 17, 2008 6:02 pm Post subject: Reply with quoteHas anyone come up with some good Metheny patches yet? I know there's one in the "heroes" library, but it's not quite there yet, at least to my ears. The sound I'm referring to is on "End of the Game," "Are you Going with Me" and countless other tunes. Metheny somehow has this super fluid sound, and a brilliance in the tone without a lot of treble. I've been trying to get the EQ right, but each time, after a few hours, my ears burn out. Just wondering if anyone has nailed it yet. In the meantime, I'll see if I can get any closer.-Ericdead_lizardPostPosted: Thu Jan 17, 2008 11:01 pm Post subject: Reply with quoteYeah I know what you mean about ear-burnout.Perhaps what we should do in this case, since we now have UNLIMITED space to store our patches is create four or five variations, which all come pretty close and sound similar to each other. Then next time we come back to it, with fresh ears we can work out which one came closest and then continue to chip away.Some of these sounds could take weeks or months to nail....hausmannPostPosted: Fri Jan 18, 2008 1:29 am Post subject: Reply with quoteNot a bad idea. I agree, some patches take a long time to tweak to perfection. Which is also a compliment to the VG, having such a vast array of tools and colors to work with. I try to stay focused when I'm editing patches, but it doesn't always work out that way. I change something and it starts going in a completely different direction than originally intended. My focus is no match against my curiosity.-Eric
