    Hey you guys (and gals). I got a Zoom 506 II for Christmas this year and was wondering if anyone had some cool patches to share. I'll get back on soon and share some of mine after you guys put yours up. Thanks.

    Here's a patch for everyone to get us started- It's basically a distortion patch with delay and some funky stuff added into it.

    Rules for adding patches:
    -Include a brief description of the patch.

    -List the effect module (patch level, comp>limit>wah, etc. then the letters/numbers (be ABSOLUTELY SURE to get uppercase/lowercase correct, you know how important that is if you have a ZOOM 506 II) ).

    -Possibly include what type of equipment you use

    My distortion/delay patch (pretty simple)

    Patch Level: 24
    Comp>Limit>Wah: L5
    Dist: tH
    Gain: 30
    EQ(1-50)>Phase: 19
    Contour: 0
    ZNR/Amp: 9
    Mod: c2
    Dly/Rev: d8
    Time: 30

    I use a custom-made Peavey 4-string bass with a BX-15 CRATE Amp. Have fun with this patch! I like it for staccato soloing.

    All right I'll add one more, but you guys gotta add your own ones too, ok? Here-

    -Sort of weird phaser/wah/delay sound, awesome man!

    Patch Level: 27
    Comp>Limit>Wah: r8
    Dist: tH
    Gain: 30
    EQ(1-50)>Phase: P8
    Contour: 0
    ZNR/Amp: 7
    Mod: P1
    Dly/Rev: d8
    Time: 30

    Meaning...? I have an effect that sounds like a fretless bass (IMO). Something like that?
     
  8. I haven´t made many patches... í´ve only just fiddled with it...

    but many off the preset patches work really well... :)

    anyway, very cool effect... :)

    just out of curiousity, I heard that the old 506 was pretty noisy. Do any of you guys know if they fixed that with the new one?

    Actually, to tell you the truth, it's still a little bit noisy, but it is much improved. It's easier to edit effect also!
     
  13. YEAH! I just bought the Zoom 506 II, and I LIKE it !!!!
    If I come up with any cool patch I'll post it.

    Ok, good. Cool, I'm glad. What type of music do you play?
     
  18. I'm in a metal band and we play own material.
    I guess we sound like Soulfly mixed with Korn or something...or at least we are trying to :D

    What do you play?
    .............................................

    Still working on those patches.

    Cool- me too. But without the soulfly influence... and we haven't practiced yet. But I'm also in a dixieland band on a different instrument.
