MATCHLESS DC30 - POD GO

MATCHLESS DC30 - POD GO

$14.99Price

TONE FOR DAYS! THIS POD GO PATCH IS BASED ON OUR MATCHLESS DC30 2X12 COMBO AND FEATURES NEW TONE-MATCHED IRs, WHICH INTEGRATES AN AMP MODEL IN THE POD GO WITH THE REAL LIFE AMP DURING THE IR CAPTURE PROCESS FOR GREATER ACCURACY AND TRANSLATION OF OUR DC30 TO THE LINE 6 HX ECOSYSTEM.

The Matchless DC30 is one of the most legendary combo amps of the past 30 years and is widely used by touring and session pros across many genres of music. We have played many backlined DC30s on the road and ours is truly an exceptional-sounding example. We spent time fitting it with hand-selected vintage preamp and power tubes to give us just the right amount of headroom and excellent breakup characteristics. This amp and preset can sound clean like a Vox, or raunchy like a 100-watt Marshall (and everything in between). 


The DC30 is EL84 based and has two channels. Channel 1 is more vox-like in tone, using two 12AX7's in the preamp and Channel 2 is EF86-based for a different flavor of breakup. The DC30 houses two different speakers which are Matchless Special Designed 25w and 30w greenback variants. We captured every tonal aspect of this amp and this download includes all of it  - both channels individually as well as jumped through each speaker for a total of 15 presets and 24 IRs

 

TONE-MATCHED IMPULSE RESPONSES INCLUDED 

This preset features new tone-matched IRs that integrate an existing amp model in the Pod Go with the real-life DC30 during the IR capture process, which results in greater accuracy and translation of the amp to the Line 6 ecosystem. Please see the Instructions tab for how to import and load IRs into the preset. This download includes 24 tone matched Matchless™ DC30 IRs for a variety of excellent tonal options. Try them all to see which you prefer the tone and dynamics of - use one or mix and match like the real amp does! Included IRs:

  • Shure™ SM57
    • 6 IRs consisting of each speaker (25w & 30w) for CH1, CH2 and Jumped Presets.

PRESETS INCLUDED

Each patch utilizes the same compressor, overdrives, amp, and IR - but offers different delay/reverb/pitch/modulation effects. The POD GO is limited to two (2) time-based/modulation effects per preset, so we decided to include multiple presets with various combinations of effects in these two slots that are based on sounds from the full DC30 Helix patch, giving you lots of options! The included presets in this download are:

  • TF DC30 CH1 1 - vintage delay & bloom reverb
  • TF DC30 CH1 2 - chorus & spring reverb
  • TF DC30 CH1 3 - vibrato & cloud verb
  • TF DC30 CH1 4  - memory man & tremolo
  • TF DC30 CH1 5 - vibrato & spring reverb
  • TF DC30 CH2 1 - vintage delay & bloom reverb
  • TF DC30 CH2 2 - chorus & spring reverb

PICKUPS & GUITAR

These patches were dialed in to work well with most guitars and pickups and were tested with my Veritas Portlanders with humbuckers, Strat and Texas Miracle (tele) with single coils, and my Gretsch While Falcon with filtertrons. Feel free to save a copy of the preset and experiment with the EQ block, or any other elements of the patch to tune it as you please.
