Found an interesting distortion DSP on Yamaha arrangers
« on: September 17, 2020, 07:02:04 PM »
*** WORKS ON GENOS, TYROS 5, SX900, S970/975 ***

Hi friends,
I've found a very interesting distortion DSP on my Genos, not good for solo but very powerful for heavy rock / metal crunch chords.
This DSP is called "Jazz Combo Basic", and I want to report a list of settings to configure it to get a very powerful distortion.

1. First select an electric guitar. On Genos I suggest the 60sTexasBlues, on the other arrangers I suggest the CountryPick or also a Jazz Guitar.
2. Go into Voice Edit and change the sound to get it less bright (I have set Cutoff to -34 and Resonance to -64). Set the EQ to flat.
3. Set the Reverb to 4 and chorus from 0 to 22 (the 60sTexasBlues sounds good with chorus to 22).
4. Now go into DSP settings and select the Jazz Combo Basic. Set it with these settings:
- Panning: 5.0
- Volume: 1.0
- Distortion: 10.0
- Bass: 7.0
- Middle: 1.0
- Treble: 1.6
- High Treble: 10.0
- Output: 40
- Speaker Type: best are BS 4x12, AC 4x10, BC 2x12, AM 4x12
- Mic Position: as you prefer. Some cabinets work good also with "side" setting
- Chorus: Off
- Vib Speed: 0.0
- Depth: 0.0

You can play with the "Treble" setting from 1.0 to 3.3 to change the distortion color, and/or changing the cabinet.

What do you think?

Hi Francesco,

Could you post a recording of the sound (not necessarily a song) for us to hear?

Thanks,

Excellent work, Francesco! There's no comparison between the before and after sounds. You've nailed it!
