    Default Guitar Rig 5 & Van51 Amp

    Hi all,

    I thought I'd upgrade to Guitar Rig 5 and noticed that this time around they've got a 5150 Amp in there called the Van51 - I'm quite surprised at how good is sounds, esp. with my Wolf.

    Its got High Gain, Crunch & Clean channels and a dozen of so presets. (one called 'Women & Children First' LOL). Of course I went to the 'BroVan Sound' patch first and it sounded great - alot better than the 'Early Edward' patch on the previous release. The mids were a little low for my tastes so I upped them but it sounds great out of the box.

    I tried first with headphones and it sounded good but a little flat - i plugged into my home receiver and with the natural sound/reverb of the room it was impressive. I'm going to try with a studio PA in a couple of weeks so it'll be interesting to see what it sounds like through good gear.

    Anyway, I wanted to share and see if anybody else out there has it - I'm not a massive fan of computer modellers but have been pulling it out last few months as I'm just writing with a friend in a rehearsal space and not wanting to lug gear - I've been pleasantly surprised, even more so now.

    cheers

    Joe

    I'm going to upgrade soon too, can't wait to get my hands on the 5150 for that balance tone. I really hope they start doing some pedals in future like Wamplers n stuff.

    Could you post a clip? I've got a few on my soundcloud in my sig!

    I finally got around to recording the VH51 on GR5 with my Wolf. Its the 'Brovan' patch with the mids upped and gain up slighly but pretty stock standard.

    The backing track is from a Music Radar tutorial - a VH rhythm/idea that's a lot of fun - esp. after a few red wines a Friday night!
