Today on Live Musician Central I’m posting another of my custom programmed preset sound patches for the Fender Cyber-Twin SE amplifier. This patch is called “LMC Matt’s Noise” and is one of my ‘special effect’ sound patches. This preset is based on a British Tone Stack and the Backwards Delay effect. I personally feel that the Backwards Delay effect has to be one of the least musical effects in the Cyber-Twin SE effect bank. But, it still has it’s place in the sonic soundscape.
The reason I programmed “LMC Matt’s Noise” is mainly for adding color to certain songs. One song I use this sound on in my cover band is the Nine Inch Nails song “Closer”. For the way my band does that song, I use “LMC Matt’s Noise” to create extra tension in the music. I also use “LMC Matt’s Noise” on the “Fudgie The Dog” album in the song “Prison” to create a darker, mysterious feel. I play solo’s in the song “Prison” with this sound and when using “LMC Matt’s Noise” for solo’s you have to play slow and let the notes really build.

The “Fudgie The Dog” album is also a great sampling of how my preset patches for the Cyber-Twin SE sound with a band.
To give “LMC Matt’s Noise” more real time versatility, I have assigned the Delay Out Level to the Continuous Controller pedal so you can clean the sound up a bit for more clarity on your guitar. I also assigned the Delay Fwd Feedback parameter to the Expression Pedal so you can crank up the delay repeats and build a huge wall of noise. I did this at the end of the sound clip featured on this page. You need to be careful doing that because you can easily overload your amplifier with this sound and possibly cause damage to it.
It’s up to you to decide where and when you would use the “LMC Matt’s Noise” preset patch. I keep using it in here and there both live and in the studion. The sound has surprised me with it’s versatility at times. When I hear the sound patch back on recordings I haven’t been disappointed with it. “LMC Matt’s Noise” can bring a surprising amount of texture to a song.
The sound clip of ”LMC Matt’s Noise” was recorded using my 2004, 50th Anniversary American Deluxe Stratocaster which is equipped with the factory Samarium Cobalt Noiseless pickups. I am using the bridge pickup setting for the sound demo. I’ve posted the MIDI System Exclusive data for easy transferring to your Fender Cyber-Twin SE as well as the text file for this patch. If you don’t know how to use MIDI System Exclusive data to transfer patches to your amplifier, I’ve written a tutorial for you here: How To Save And Load Presets To Your Fender Cyber-Twin SE.
