'Eruption/You Really Got Me' V 2.3 - For Single-Coil Pickups (Axe-Fx III)
A 'Tone Matched' Preset for the songs 'Eruption' and 'You Really Got Me' by 'Van Halen'.
-----Now includes a free second version 2 made by Fractal Audio's Mark Day!-----
Includes a faithful recreation of the now infamous 'Dive-Bomb' effect and a 1/2 step 'Drop Tuned' effect for standard tuned guitars.
Updated for firmware 4.03
Includes an optional (bypassed by default) 'Pitch' block to drop the tuning down a 1/2-step for standard A-440 tuned guitars. You can replace this block with a 'shunt' if you are already tuned down or wish to stay in standard tuning to reduce the CPU load.
Any included 'Custom' IRs should be imported into the same 'User Cab' slot(s) (if currently unused) listed below. If the 'User Cab' slot(s) are being used in your unit, you can use any other slot(s) that you wish. But you must go to the Cab block(s) in the preset and set them to use the new slots that you are now using.
