Just start with the presence, treble, mid, bass and gain at 12:00 and tweak from there. I liked the orange channel, vintage mode pushed with an OD pedal. It tightens up the bottom end and gives off a nice distortion that isnt harsh.

You can't be serious with the gain settings.

I never go more than 2:00 on gain.

And bass maxed on modern mode??

It depends what sound you going for.

The modern mode emphasize the top and low end while the vintage mode is darker.

I normally have the bass below 12 o'clock in all mode, the gain no higher than 2 o'clock, the mids and presence above 12 o'clock in modern, higher in vintage.
I normally start with the high at zero and turn it up until I start hearing the sizzle.
