    Thanks Lefty, i will be recieving it today.

    Just for reference on what gear i have..so you have idea of how i should be setting things up..

    Epiphone Les paul standard (stock pickups)
    Fender princeton 65DSP amp combo
    Sabine overdrive pedal..i dont use it..i use amp's distortion which i think is more good with chorus and delay..in amps fx

    and now a Korg AX3000g to add to it..

    i am not a metal fan..so rock sounds would do..:)

    After i get the unit today..let me check the presets etc and play around.
    In mean time..if you could just post..the settings you have or can make one for espescially for sounds of Pink Floyd..songs comfortable numb..coming back to life..shine on you crazy diamond..i am try to learn this..
    and gnr..sound..:)
    lets see if i can get something going..:)

    Thanks again Lefty..

    ok man, u got gr8 gears.

    use ovd pedal to get sustain of slsah, coz korg cant give u tht much sustain, i.e., think ur playing teh solo of sweet child o mine, u need to strat on 17h fret, e...........so , u kno, ull not get enough gain to make it sustain on tht note.:p:but den again, ull use neck pickup of a lp:eek::

    ill post settings of my gnr rythm dist, izzy's overdrive, gnr clean patch, and slash's lead and wahs.

    but thts 2moro, coz its 1.30 now:p:

    and , i don like pink flyd so much, actually i think ill listen to it, but nt now,busy wid nirvana, metallica, maiden, and dt:p:

    and those preset patches r not too good. only reso ac got some cool delays, and good acostic sims , u kno:eek:: but dists r not satisfying, try on ur own to make dem.

    should i be connecting the ovd pedal to korg..send return..? or

    guitar->korg->ovd pedal->guitar amp

    also wanted to ask..does korg ax3000g have effects chain..
    i mean can i have more than one effect..in a program..in pre fx. i read somewhere boss gt8 has it..but it was 100$ expensive and i didnot have budget for it..:(( anyways..:)

    yes please post ur settings and that should be fine..

    place ur effects in between guitar and amp.

    dont ask for things like ideal eq setting etc.. for any band. that doesnt exist. though reading the eq thread will help when ur jamming. there are too many factors- the only way to make a patch is to listen to a song while writing your patch. you can look at some on the internet to get you on the right track - but ultimately its upto you to make the patch. i have so far spent over 25 hours trying to refine a patch for shine on you crazy diamond on my gnx 3 - and im still working on it. i am actually working on two diff. patches simultaneously seeing which gets there better. just keep working on it - ull eventually get there.

    LEFTY_GUITARIST -= M®. §öU†|-|ÞäW =-

    uk modern - 9.8, 6.1, 7.2, , 4.4, 7.0

    reverb - arena - 5.7, 0.6, 9.1, 2, 4.0

    prefx- vox wah- 3.0,, 6.0, 1.0, 847, PrE.

    exp - p maual,

    ctl - p on off.

    so when teh wah is off, it is slash lead tone, and wen itz on., itz slsh wah.

    and insert effect always on.

    if u use send return, u can use ctrl it by teh processor nly. ie, supose, u gotta change a patch , frm a clean patch to a lead patch tht uses ovd pedal, so u hav to press only once on processor, no pressing on pedal. coz ins effect is on.

    for rythm, i use,gain 7.7, treble 8.2, mid 2.0, bass 6.4

    tats all.

    u need 3 or 4 days to understand it ;)

    and i still don know how to use ess.:p: compltly.

    Thanks Lefty..:) i tried your settings and they work great..i will do some tweaking when i have some time..on it..since amp/line for me is AP1 open back..which doesnot give that smooth hollowish or growlish sound like a closed back..i tried that with my horrible computer speakers and i did notice AP2 on that was sounding more LP Marshall combination than...my combination of AP1 with LP and fender open back..a little difference..but i will try to tweak something..so i get more closer..:) not that i want to mock the sound acurately..but closer is good..

    Also about insert ...i read in manual that insert will allow me to insert external pedal effects..through send and return.. does Insert allow me to put multiple prefx..from korgs list..or i can only put one effect in prefx..and then rest if i need i need to do insert and put external pedal..

    Also if somebody has Acoustic settings please forward it..i tried yesterday..but could not get a good one..whatever i did it sounded like a electric guitar on clean..:(

    Hi Lefty,

    Thanks for getting me started..:)

    yesterday i got the most perfect slash tone..:)

    what i did was on ur settings..i changed my amp/line to AP2 and then
    reverb to spring..and played around with reverb settings..especially the Mix when set around 50 to 60 gives u a good..sound..

    Also i noticed ur settngs dont have delay..so i played by tweaking that also..but could not find any good setting..so did not include it..:) but now it sounds cool..i play on my LP..with neck pickup and tone knob rolled back all the way..:D

    i am going to try and make a patch on similar lines for pink floyd sound..lets see how close it get..

    Thanks again ..and keep on sharing settings..

    LEFTY_GUITARIST -= M®. §öU†|-|ÞäW =-

    Congrats on your purchase. I am thinking of getting the Zoom G7.1UT. Did you evaluate that ine as well - what do you think? I'm looking for the "fat" blues sounds and long sustain.

    I might buy a Korg AX3000G soon. I have a few questions.

    1. Have you ever compared this to a Boss GT6. I am not bothered about GT8. Just GT6.
    2. How do you rate the Delay, Chorus, Flange and Reverb of AX3000G to a GT6 Delay, Chorus, Flange, Reverb.
    3. In General how would you rate the Delay, Chorus, Flange and Reverb of AX3000G to other good processors you have played on like Digitech GNX Series, Zoom GFX Series, or Line6 Series, etc...
    4. Any other suggestion for a processor that has the best Delay, Chorus, Flange and Reverb, etc....

    How is it for the "fat" bluesy kinds of sounds you get from the Marshall Bluesbraker and the Sustain of the Mesa?

    How easy is it to get additional presets?

    Have you compared to the Korg - which is better?

    well i compared it to an AX1500G which i had previously and it kills the korg like nobody's business (imo)...u can basically get anything out of it...and it will sound good....and as for additional presets...its really easy to do but u need to buy a MIDI cable...
