    Would anyone like to share their settings on their LM2?

    I've got mine sounding pretty good, but was wondering how others used their VPF and VLE knobs, and also the other settings...

    So far I leave the VPF and VLE off and cut the high mids to about 10:00.

    I need to spend more time with this amp, but I can see using the VLE at some point. Doubt I'll ever use the VPF much.

    I start with the four band eq flat. That usually is it. I can get a great 'old school' sound by bringing the VLE up to between 8 and 9 o'clock...makes my GS112s sound like my old 2X15 cabs...no lie! On some tunes, I will tweek the VPF just a tad. Small adjustments work best, IMHO. Kinda like adding salt and pepper to a dish..."season to taste".

  4. I've gigged with mine about 3 times since buying it, and each time I've had to change my settings because of the acoustics in each room were different. So I just need a little more gigging time to play with the settings. In one of the rooms, I had the VLE knob set at about 9:00 o'clock, and sounded real good. In the other rooms I had to turn the VLE off. I'll try and remember what the other settings where and get back to you. :bag: :D

    Just to confirm the terms:

    VLE = Old school

    VPF = scoop


    Edit: okay fixed it
  6. Ain't it the other way round? VLE = Vintage Loudspeaker emulator...Which essentially cuts the highs...VPF is the scooper I'm sure...

    We can all give you the various settings we use, but unless you play like us and have the same speakers and basses as us, what's the point? Plus, as Roger Winkler found out, the settings will change depending on the venue and how loud you will be playing. Just something to think about. :)
