SOAD (System of A Down Inspired Tone)


A clone preset inspired Daron Malakian of System of A Down. This preset was created based on research done on Daron’s sound, specifically focusing on the earlier System of A Down sound. Numerous videos were referenced as well as isolated STEM tracks to get a sound that sounds close to what Daron is known for. In a mix, this preset sounds great. Now you can get a System of A Down inspired sound on your Quad Cortex.

All of these demos were recorded on a Schecter C-7 Pro with Seymour Duncan Black Winter pickups in the bridge position.

Scene A (heavy)

Scene B (clean)

Scene C (clean reverb)

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 that you hear of these presets are not mastered; they have not been mixed in any way 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.

Important: After placing your order, please allow upwards of 24 hours for your presets to be made available. Due to how the Neural DSP Cortex Cloud currently works, you will need to befriend our profile, and presets will be shared with you. Make sure you add the user “Beggars” on Cortex Cloud.
