In this article, we will take a closer look at each of the four modes of the LRS Unchained Rig Library-R2R and see what they can offer in terms of tone and versatility. We will also compare them with some of the original Plexi amps and artists that inspired them.
The '65 Mode is the cleanest and most dynamic mode of the LRS Unchained Rig Library-R2R. It is based on the early JTM-45 amps that were used by blues and rock artists like Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, Keith Richards and Angus Young. The '65 Mode has a warm, rich and organic tone that responds well to your picking attack and guitar volume. You can get anything from sparkling cleans to crunchy overdrive with this mode, depending on how hard you hit the strings and how much you crank the gain and master knobs. The '65 Mode also works great with pedals, especially boosters and fuzzes, to add more bite and sustain to your sound.
The '66 Mode is slightly more aggressive and brighter than the '65 Mode. It is based on the later JTM-45/100 amps that were used by Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Jeff Beck and Led Zeppelin. The '66 Mode has more headroom and clarity than the '65 Mode, but also more edge and bite. It can deliver a wide range of tones, from clean and chimey to fat and crunchy, with a smooth midrange and a tight low end. The '66 Mode is ideal for blues-rock, psychedelic rock and classic rock styles, as well as for adding some color and character to your clean tones.
The '68 Mode is the most famous and sought-after mode of the LRS Unchained Rig Library-R2R. It is based on the 1968 Marshall Super Lead Plexi amp that was used by Eddie Van Halen on his legendary first six albums. The '68 Mode has a distinctive brown sound that is rich, harmonically complex, articulate and powerful. It can produce a massive amount of gain and sustain, but also retain clarity and definition. The '68 Mode is perfect for hard rock, heavy metal, shred and rock fusion styles, as well as for creating epic solos and riffs that will make your guitar sing.
The Mod Mode is the most modern and versatile mode of the LRS Unchained Rig Library-R2R. It is based on the hot-rodded 1968 Plexi amps that were modified by amp gurus like Jose Arredondo, Lee Jackson and John Suhr. The Mod Mode has a boosted gain stage that adds more saturation, compression and sustain to your tone. It also has a switchable variac mode that lowers the voltage of the amp, creating more sag, bloom and touch sensitivity. The Mod Mode can handle any style of music, from blues to metal, with ease and authority. It is also great for experimenting with different tones and effects, as it can adapt to any situation. ec8f644aee
