These tones were designed for Baritone Guitars in A2 Standard and Basses in A1 Standard an octave down, . The guitars used to craft these tones were equipped with Humbuckers, one passive (PSV) and one active (ACT). The Bass tones also feature both an active and passive preset.
With Cab IRs Folder
• For use with “as-is” in the DAW, with a “FRFR” (full range, flat response) rig, or “direct to FOH”.
A clear and rich, pushed gain rhythm tone with controllable “purrr”. Tweaked for modern passive pickups. Great for diminished rhythms and single note lines.
VNS PSV VRB
An articulate yet smooth hi-gain reverb tone for melody lines that retains pick-attack
VNS PSV LOFI
That “old-fashioned radio” or “telephone” sound for your guitar or bass to set up the listener for a dynamic shift in your compositions.
Same as VNS PSV but tweaked for active pickups. May perform well on certain passive pickups as well
VNS ACT VRB
Same as VNS PSV VRB but tweaked for active pickups. May perform well on certain passive pickups as well
VNS ACT LOFI
Same as VNS PSV LOFI but tweaked for active pickups. May perform well on certain passive pickups as well
VNS PSV BSS
A gnarly, grinding bass tone with a tight bottom end fashioned for use for low tuned, fast, heavy music.
VNS ACT BSS
Same as VNS PSV BSS but tweaked for active pickups. May perform well on certain passive pickups as well
Without Cab IRs Folder
• Preamp only, non pickup specific versions of the above tones tweaked for use with a power amp & cab, user IRs, or an external IR loader. May require additional tweaking depending on instrument pairing.
VNS VRB NC
Gainy melody lines and leads
VNS LOFI NC
