I love my GT-6 guitar processor. I highly recommend it to every guitarist, novice to professional.
I have created this page to share my self-created
and/or modified patches
with other guitarists, and also for fans of the band, whom might want to get an "inside" listen to the guitar sounds
I use when performing live with "The Oath" and
"Party Of Four". These sound samples were performed and recorded by me, straight from my
BOSS GT-6 into a computer.
All the patches were
created and/or modified by me. I hope you enjoy these
samples of my GT-6! - ken
patch settings and sound clips were updated on April 21, 2005.****
I have recently upgraded to a BOSS GT-8 Processor,
I will be adding my newly created GT-8 patches to the website also.
On these audio samples, I played my schecter omen 6 guitar, with a dimarzio super distortion pickup
in the bridge position, and a dimarzio evolution in the neck position. On the lead guitar samples,
I will start with the super distortion, and end with the evolution.
On these next audio samples, I played my gibson les paul, with a dimarzio super distortion pickup in the bridge position, and a
seymour duncan invader pickup in the neck position.
I've received a few e-mails with some questions about the patches....
Q: I noticed that the sounds you recorded were direct to disk, with no amp.
you get the same sounds out of your amp?
A: The patches do sound good to me through a
standard guitar amp, however, live I go from the gt-6 direct to the
pa. My band
has separate monitor mixes, so I crank the gt-6 through my yamaha 15 inch 2-way
monitor. I power it with a qsc 400 power amp.
Q: I was looking at your settings and didn't see anything there for the global
settings. Do you use this section when your eq-ing the overall patch?
A: I really don't use the global feature of the gt-6. I haven't come across the need to do so
actually. My live patches seem to work well in small to large clubs, without
having to re-eq or change the reverb settings, and they have sounded fine at
outdoor shows as well.
Q: I have a question. I notice that there is a beverage on the table beside you in
a clear plastic glass. Would you be so kind as to reveal to the music industry
what your beverage of choice is when tweaking your gt-6?
A: Beer of course! It puts me in the right gt-6 frame of mind. Also...that is not any average "plastic glass".
It is a Tampa Bay Buccaneer Super Bowl XXXVII Beer Glass. Go Bucs!
I've enjoyed the sounds I've gained through your assistance. I've found your directions easy to follow and the sound very nice. Have you ever illustrated sounds of
certain musicians? For example, some of the sounds I'm trying to emulate are Clapton, Page, and Schenker. I realize
some songs have certain sounds, but I'm looking for the basic sound of each
A: I'm glad the web page was of some help to you. I'm not sure if you know about it, but a GREAT website to go to find and download patches
created to sound like other players is BOSS GT CENTRAL. They have some excellent patches created by GT-6 owners. It's also a
terrific site for information on BOSS GT PROCESSORS. And, it has a kickin' Message Board. Check it out!
