Topic: Accessing the Quick User Settings in EFFECT

If you are new to guitar effects and don’t necessarily know how to dial up the sound of a phaser or a flanger, here’s a quick tip to access some pedal effect specific presets that exist in the Quick User Settings of the EFFECT button.

For a starting point, turn the patch knob [ 1 ] to patch P01-4 NATURAL CLEAN.

1. Push the [EFFECT] button.

2. In the left LCD screen, turn the [SELECT] knob to highlight the FX1 icon.  If FX1 is OFF (icon looks like a dot), use the [ON/OFF] knob to turn the effect ON (icon looks like a pedal).

3. Turn the [TYPE] knob and dial up the PHASER.

4. Push the [◄ ] page left button until you get to the “Quick User Setting”.

5. Turn the [QUICK SETTING] knob to the right until you get to P01: VINTAGE PH. This is a preset for a classic vintage phaser.

6. Dial through P01-P05 to hear some different phaser specific effects presets.

7. You may have noticed as you were turning the [QUICK SETTING] knob that there were also slots U01-U10. These are where you can save your personal phaser settings for quick recall in other patch presets.

8. Once you have found a preset you like push the [EXIT] button to return to the main screen.

We hope this helps open up the possibilities to help you to create your tone!

    I need a sales pitch. What can the GT 100 or GR55 doe for guitar effects that the TC helicon  vl3x can't do. This can edit and make 250 presets and can manipulate any part of any preset to up/dn load that to a pc also ?
