Inspired by the heavy tone on the The Alchemy Index Vols. I & II release, specifically the Fire EP. This patch will give you the needed grit to match the Fire EP. Thrice were pretty geeky gearheads back when they were writing and producing this record themselves, so a lot of the gear was documented at the time, as well as studio videos and reference points to nail this sound.
The demos were recorded on a Mark Holcombe PRS SVN 7 string with stock pickups in the bridge position with the split coil selector pulled up.

Important: After placing your order, please allow up to 24 hours for your presets to be available. Due to how the Neural DSP Cortex Cloud currently works, you must befriend our profile and presets will be shared with you. Make sure you add the user “Beggars” on Cortex Cloud to ensure you receive your presets in a timely manner.
Disclaimer: Like most presets, don’t expect a plug-and-play experience. Depending on your guitar, pickups, strings and playing, this preset might sound different after purchase. Where possible, we will assist all customers with tweaking their presets to get their desired tone. All the demos you hear of these presets are not mastered; they have not been mixed or double-tracked. All demos are single-tracked guitars. For clone presets especially, what you hear in the song results from layered tracks, production and other studio additions to get that sound. The guitars themselves in the mix sound different.
