This time we tried to emulate the great and rich John Petrucci’s sound with Amplitube, proposing you 10 high quality patches that walk through different Dream Theater Album like “Images and words”, “Awake” and many others.
In the following list you can find tracks that inspired our work:
- Constant Motion (inspired by Constant Motion Rhythm Guitar tone) - Constant Motion Lead (inspired by Constant Motion Lead Guitar tone) - Nightmare (inspired by A Nightmare to Remember Rhythm Guitar tone) - Metropolis PT1 (inspired by Metropolis Rhythm Guitar tone) - You not me (inspired by You not me Lead Guitar tone) - Lifting Shadows (inspired by Lifting shadow off a dream Clean tone) - The Mirror (inspired by The mirror Rhythm Guitar tone) - Tuscany Lead (inspired by The count of Tuscany Lead Guitar tone) - Tuscany (inspired by The count of Tuscany Rhythm Guitar tone) - As I Am (inspired by As i am Rhythm Guitar tone)
Patches were programmed using various Ibanez guitar equipped with Dimarzio pickups. Use this kind of guitar for best tone results.
For clean tone we suggest guitar with double Humbucker wired for splitting them in second switch position.
In the video below you can check out how our patches sound like. Enjoy!
Just import patches folder into your own preset folder! Requires Amplitube Mesa Boogie.
