    Effect 1: Delay
    Time 347
    F.B 47
    Mix 44

    That's pretty cool that you've started this thread, necropain.I don't own a zoom ms-60b yet, but when I do, I'll share some patch ideas. or if you like, I can improvise some patch ideas considering that the zoom ms-60b is a stomp box version of the zoom b3. congrads on starting this thread and good luck.

    Thanks! I might give those effect settings a crack tonight.

    I got one 2 weeks ago. It's pretty simple to use but as it's my first multi fx unit & is doing my head in so I've shelved it until I've completed my cradled-up-in-the-fetal-position-because-it's-so-overwhelming therapy. My main problem is getting consistant volume over the presets - I think I get it right, then come back 30 mins later (without turning the unit off) & I'm not happy.

    Hopefully I'll be able to add something useful to this thread very soon :)

    Here's a patch idea that I was thinking of for the zoom ms-60b. this patch came from my zoom b3 patch ideas thread. this patch duplicates the warm distortion sounds of an ebs metaldrive.

    Modern bass distortion

    Effects 1: znr: thresh: 18, detect: grnlft, level: 90

    Effects 2: m comp: thresh:24, ratio:9, level:70, attack:5

    Effects 3: metalwrld: gain:40, tone:18, level:100, balance:18

    Effects 4: svt: bass:3, mid:2, treble:2, midfq:400hz, gain:45, level:59, ultra:low, cab:ag8x10, mix:59

    Cant wait to get home and try some of these!! Especially the synth one. I think the 60B does a great job with the synth stuff.

    Those synth tones are evil. I have a tame one for emulating a keyboard bass, Prerogativ:
    effect 1: Z-syn: Wave saw Decay 97 Tone 4 Freq 0 Range 4 Reso 5 Synth 46 Dry 56 Level 80
    effect 2: Bass Pre: Bass 3 Trebl 3 Level 80 Mid 9 Freq 800hz
    effect 3: Limiter: THRSH 34 Ratio 4 Level 90 Rel 7

    For a tone that cuts in a muddy room, SVT Stabby:
    effect 1: BassGraphicEQ: 50hz 0 120hz 5 400hz 0 500hz 5 800hz 0 4.5khz 5 10khz 0 Level 100
    effect 2: SVT: Bass -1 Mid 5 Trebl 4 Mid_F 350hz Gain 39 Level 33 Ultra OFF Cab AG 8x10 Mix 50

    For a touch of dirt, BBdrivin:
    effect 1: BassBB: Gain 12 Bass 3 Trebl 5 Blend 68 Level 70

    For thick, beefy fuzz, Jumblefuzz:
    effect 1: BassBooster: Gain 46 Bass -1 Trebl -3 Level 35
    effect 2: BassBB: Gain 84 Bass 3 Trebl -3 Blend 88 Level 70
    effect 3: B-Man amp: Bass -1 Mid 8 Trebl -2 Mid_F 500hz Gain 30 Level 60 Deep OFF Cab BM 4x12 Mix 50

    Ha, well you may be disappointed with mine. They're more utilitarian for the gigs I'm on right now, I'll have to look up some of my weirder stuff later.

    no i like your synth and the the SVT Stabby patch they are both very useful and practical. which is something i need more of but have a hard time making for some reason. as much as i like effects from subtle to extreme. i have hard time making tones on the subtle end for some reason.

    Here's a bunch of patches I've programmed over a few hours over a few days so grab a coffee, your 60B & see what fits ya! For the record, I used my Thumb b/o 5 in passive mode, p/ups centred, finger style & I play over the rear p/up 95% to cop a Jacoesque type tightness & feel, especially as the synth sounds require clean articulation. Still the odd bleep, bloop, quack here n there with some patches due to muting & attacking technique but by n large not bad. I'm an 80's guy, sans mullet, so I was trying for a Howard Jones, Swing Out Sister, Stevie Wonder, EWF cleaner type synth vibe as I'm not a fan of OD/Fuzz & Dist type sounds mostly. These days I'm a hired gun for cover bands so I need to have versatility & the MS60B is a godsend. I'll list the FX from left to right as they appear on the screen, NOT in 1,2,3,4 order from right to left & I'll list the parameter values in order in the same way, toggling through them left to right from page 1. Have fun n tweak away whatever suits your fancy. PS, pardon some corny names, you can take the guy out of marketing but.....

    I agree. I take pics on my phone and go to town setting patches up hehe. I've been running my B7K into the 60b's SVT sim. Very very nice. SVT on steroids!
