    Just got this thing and have plugged it into my computer and messed around with it, so I know the basics of how to use the standard toneprints, but haven't found the exact one i prefer yet. Butterknife might be the closest to my taste. I'd like to create a custom toneprint. I'm not technical so I don't know my attack from my whatever. Looking for any suggestions on any favorite custom toneprints you may have set up. My style: fingers, no slap; My music: mostly classic/grunge/alt rock; Jbass; Rumble 500 combo amp; no other effects pedals
    Screen shots welcome!

    I'm in the process of trying new toneprints as well. Just loaded up 'Rockateer' for Sundays gig.
    Seems like a finger player has more choice than a lowly pickplayer like myself but at least we're not hitting our instruments like a drum. :rolleyes:
    Have you looked through the TC Electronic site for a custom toneprint from another finger player? Seems like a good place to start.

    ParallelBassComp and ToneBooster are nice starting points for tweaking. Both are good for fingerstyle on low settings. My favorite is Smooth and Funky.

    well after a few more hours of trying, I may have settled on Smooth and Funky for now. Ideally, I'd like to make a custom toneprint where I simply use the single knob to go from 0% to Full compression as the song dictates. I know it's more complicated that that tho...thanks to you both for your advice.

    And just to follow up, the 'Rockateer' toneprint is better than the default if playing plectrum.
