90s Heavy

The Clean is about what I use normally with the tube rectifier and sounds good with the other settings.  The Soundgarden setting in Channel 2 is based on Fell On Black Days (turn your guitar volume down) and Let Me Drown.  It’s more of a setting for Cornell, since he did the rhythm on his songs and Outshined sounds pretty good on it, too.  Channel 3 sounds pretty close to Tool’s Stinkfist, H, 46+2, and Third Eye.  All the channels compliment each other pretty well and would work as a basis for finding a personal tone.

Let me know what you think of this.

There’s an updated blank form here.
