Lateralus (Tool inspired tone)


Category: Tags: , , ,

A preset modelled after the track Lateralus from Tool’s album of the same name. It could be adapted to work with a wide variety of Tool tracks. This preset is a good starting point if you want to sound like Tool. The distortion sound in Scene B is fantastic for many of Tool’s other tracks with heavy distortion, especially the earlier albums.

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 of the demos you hear of these presets are not mastered; they have not been mixed and are not double-tracked. All demos are single-tracked guitars. For clone presets especially, what you hear in the song is a result of layered tracks, production and other studio additions to get that sound. The guitars themselves in the mix sound different.

Scene A: Delayed clean tone

This was recorded on the neck pickup.

Scene B: Dirty overdriven tone

This was recorded on the bridge pickup.

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.
