Inspired by Knocked Loose and their ridiculously heavy sound. This preset aims to get you in the ballpark of Knocked Loose. Using a similar amp model to Isaac’s, scene A is heavy, and scene B is ludicrous heavy. Isaac achieves this using a Swollen Pickle fuzz, but we can, fortunately, replicate this using some overdrive and amp tweaking between the two scenes.
One thing worth noting with the Knocked Loose sound is that it is quite messy. So, guitar recorded by itself (and not playing any specific Knocked Loose tracks), it doesn’t sound amazing. But, in a mix or live, this goes off. If you’re using this, and when it comes time to destroy the venue, switch to Scene B, and things get pretty messed up.
The demos were recorded on an Ibanez RGIXL 7 string with stock pickups in the bridge position.
Scene A (heavy)
Scene B (heavier)

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.
