Small cutlery for the tape test and homerecording
wilinus, 08.10.2016
First for the use of the Le Cruch, with me the pedal as a solution to the home recording (without my family's ears fall) and as a small cutlery for the tape test (directly into the PA).

As a classic Distrortion pedal in front of the amp, I find the Le Crunch rather unsuitable because the sound is strongly colored and the amp can not play its character (unless you want exactly that).

Channel 1:
I would describe channel 1 as a hot cleaner channel, with my strat (AlNiCo3 single coils) you can play nice clean, if you turn the gain is tweaked, I find very nice.
With my Yamaha AES (AlNiCo 3 HB), it gets a bit tight with the pure clean, it tugs quite early, but is tame with the Volume Poti - "Fender Clean" definitely does not go here.

Channel 2:
Sounds very marshall moderate for me, I like very well with my strat and HBs, rocking officially and in the middle, whereby I personalich at Crunch stop.
The sweep knob moves the mids, the function is only audible when the center is fully turned, otherwise the effect is rather minimal to hear, nevertheless a nice feature.

as a general rule:
Effek loop works great and without problems, even truer and / or a compressor before the pedal goes very well. Also great is the possibility to pick the signal dry before the pedal (if it is the amp should be).
Speaker simulation directly into the desk is really good and works perfectly, so you can in the tape test all instruments clean up and can leave the amp at home :-)

I find the ColdFusion mode very good, since the clarity of the channel 1 affects the signal positively. I do not use "Hot Fusion", because I work for Solos with a tug before Le Crunch.

Great features:
Headphone output with Amp simulation is great, so you can use the Le Crunch as a preamp for practicing on the balcony - sound is really good :-) and you need nothing else.

Not so beautiful:
I would also like to test another tube (simple way to influence the principle), but I have no idea how I get to the tube base, without the whole pedal completely disassembled - I find not solved well.

The big + that I missed
FLOYD Alain, 07.04.2019
I use a Zoom G9,2 pedal which I am very satisfied (except the complication of programming ....).
I was missing a better color in the distortion / preamp. So, I tested a lot of machines - put in insertion and never convinced.
With this pedal, the Zoom is totally changed in positive, what sound I could not do without: depth, harmonics, grain etc ..... impeccable.
ps: spend time looking for sound, there are still a lot of possibilities.
I've already had the GP8, GP16, GT5, GT100, Eleven, Banana Line6 and other Pod, various studio programs and this combination G9.2 Zoom and Two Notes in insertion = the best by far.
