    hey i just got a zoom 506 and i was wondering if you guys could give me some of your patches (ones that would be used in music you hear on the radio)

    i dont know if you guys do this but i want a patch or two for playing like 70s rock with the electric guitar(6string). im poor so i cant afford a bass pedal and an electric pedal

    thanks guys:bassist:

    If you have got the "old" 506 (506 v1) these two links may be something for you: http://gknight.vadium.sk/zoom.htm and http://www.geocities.com/ResearchTriangle/Thinktank/6501/patches.htm.
    If you play around with the "506 II" you might want to try out settings made for "506 v1" and leave the other parameters unused.

    Here is a distortion patch for the "506 II" that works very well while playing 8-notes with a pick:
    Level: 23
    Comp/Limit/Wah: oF
    Dist: FU, Gain: 3
    EQ/Phase: 25, Contour: 7
    ZNR/AMP: 5
    MOD: oF
    DLY/REV: r9, Time: 8
