Just in time for the weekend, here’s another free Fender Cyber-Twin SE preset patch for you to check out and download. I call this preset “LMC Mid Grind ’66” and it’s very loosely based on a Fender Super Reverb ’66 amplifier. I’ve made quite a few tweaks to this preset and I use it all the time in my live band. In fact, I like this preset so much that I put it in preset number P01 so that it’s the first sound that comes up when I turn on my Cyber-Twin SE.
What I really love about the “LMC Mid Grind ’66” preset is how it lets the guitars true tone shine through. The sound of the guitar that you’re using will really determine how this preset patch will sound. It’s one of those special presets that will have guitarists naming the type of guitar you’re playing through the amplifier. A Stratocaster will sound like a Strat while a Les Paul will undeniably be a Les Paul. There are some presets that sound pretty much the same no matter what guitar you play through them but not “LMC Mid Grind ’66”.
The effects I’m using on this preset patch include a tiny touch of Reverb along with the “Delay + Chorus” effect. All of the effects are used to add very subtle color and depth to the sound. I didn’t want “LMC Mid Grind ’66” to be too heavily effected so it’s really the sound of the amplifier and not the effects unit.
I assigned Chorus Depth to the Expression Pedal so you can add some heavier effects if the song calls for it. As usual, I assigned Gain to the Continuous Controller and I do crank the gain up to 10 a lot of the time using “LMC Mid Grind ’66”.
In the sound clip I am playing my 2006 Fender American Deluxe Ash Stratocaster which is equipped with the Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Pickups. I switch between the 3 pickups as the sound clip progresses. I start out on the bridge pickup, move the middle pickup and finally play on the neck pickup. For the blues section at the end of the soundclip I crank the gain up to 10 so you can hear how it sounds all the way up.
I’ve posted both the MIDI System Exclusive data as well as a text file for you to load this preset patch into your Fender Cyber-Twin SE. Transferring presets to your Cyber-Twin SE is extremely easy using MIDI System Exclusive data. I’ve written an easy to follow tutorial called How To Save And Load Presets On Your Fender Cyber-Twin SE With MIDI Sysex that will help you learn how to use MIDI Sysex data.
