Welcome to this page dedicated to presets for the Mooer GE300 multi-effects. These presets are examples or demos that can get you started or give you some tone and settings ideas. These presets are designed and tested for metal/rock and distorted tone in general, but you might give them a try even if you play in other styles.

Overdriven.fr presets for Mooer GE300

These presets either use the built-in GE300 cabs or the impulse responses freely available on this web site. For the different presets, the setup instructions are provided. Take a look at the Impulse Response download page if you want to have a look at the available impulses as well as presentation and usage instructions.

A word on using presets

With multi-effects devices such as the Mooer GE300, presets can be used to obtain a tone close to the preset designer intent. Presets will indeed bring you in the range of the tone that was designed, but your guitar pickups (level and voicing) will still have a strong impact on the tone you will get, and your speakers will also change the results. So, you will probably need to tweak the signal chain : I would suggest to adjust first the level of the overdrive blocks (output and drive if needed) and/or to switch to another overdrive that would best suit your pickups. You are free to adjust the other parameters as well (i.e. the AMP block), of course. You can use the presets I provide here as examples or starting points. I would then encourage you to create your own tone or adjust the presets to your taste and gear. You can of course leverage the free IRs available (see Resources | Impulse Response Download) for this, and try to pair them with your GE amp sims by yourself.

CaliDual presets for GE300 – Pack 1

These are my first 12 patches made for the GE300, using the Cali Dual amplifier, for mid-gain to high-gain tones. These are the GE300 versions of the Ampero Rector patches. The patches use 11 free overdriven.fr IRs coming directly from the available collections for the main part, a few of them are custom mixes created for this collection (same IRs as the ones used in the Ampero Rector pack 1). These presets are created and tested on a GE300 (firmware 3.0.1), and may work on a GE300 lite (may be you will need to adjust a few params in this case ? GE300 Lite owners : let me know). AFAIK, they will not work on GE250 / GE200 as there is no built-in CaliDual amp profile on these 2 models. So, loading them on a 250/200 should either not work at all or point to different amp profiles. GE200/GE250 owners will not be able to read and load these .mo files : as indicated in Gabriel’s comment below, it looks like GE300 presets will only load on GE300 (files format are not compatible). However, the Cali Dual amps can be installed on the GE2x0 : see GE2x0_Amp_Model_Package.zip on http://www.mooeraudio.com/companyfile/GE200-Downloads-138.html and http://www.mooeraudio.com/companyfile/GE250-Downloads-148.html.

Most of the presets use 3 blocks : the DS/OD with the 808 overdrive, the amp block set to the CaliDual profile (channel 2) and the Cab block. The patches were created and tested using a (six strings) guitar tuned to E standard with Fishman Fluence in modern voicing, an SH4 pickup and an EMG57 pickup. You may need to tweak/change the OD settings depending on the voicing and output level of your own pickups. If you need more gain, I’d suggest to start by raising the output level and/or the gain on the overdrive block. I mainly used the Standard 6L6 power-amp sim for these presets, as this one was giving me the best tones (for my taste) : you are free to tweak and change 🙂

To install the presets, download and unzip the preset file : it contains the IR files and the GE300 .mo files.

Then :

  • backup you existing presets and IRs first
  • first load the IR files to the slots listed in the table below
  • then import the preset files

You can load the IRs to different slots, just make sure that you point the intended IR after importing the preset.

Fatboy Demon Presets – Pack 1

This pack contains 18 presets using 4 IRs from the free Fatboy Demon KT88 IRs (collection here) and 5 high-gain amps. 4 of the amps are built-in in the GE300, the last one is the Engl Savage capture from a free pack available on Mooer website (http://www.mooeraudio.com/companyfile/MNRS-Pack-Download-152.html).

To install :

  • backup you existing presets and IRs first
  • load the IR files to the slots listed below
  • import the additional amp (P-SavageC4)
  • then import the preset files

You can change the IR or the amp slots but you should make sure you checked the global option EFX Default setting to off to avoid resetting the amp settings when switching the preset to another amp.

CaliDual presets for GE300 with Tone Capture – Pack 1

Playing with my GE300, I decided to try to get more resonance and more body for the Cali Dual 2 embedded amp sim. So I picked-up one of my small amps with a Recto like preamp and started some tone capture. I ended-up with two tone captures of the preamp, intended to provide additional color on top of the Cali Dual 2 with Standard 6L6 power amp simulation. The first capture is quite dark (“TC01”), and the second one is a little bit brighter.

I then created 11 presets using the embedded Mesa GE300 cabs on top of this : these are number 10 (Rec 412), 09 (Mark 112), and 35 (Cali 412-2).

Using the stock Rec 412 Cab

All the presets are in the same tone area, with variations in gain, tone settings and cab settings. TC01 07 and TC02 04 are the ones using more resonance from the tone capture. Overall, I feel like these are giving pretty good tones : give them a try if you like the Mesa family of tones 🙂

The tone captures are intended to work best with the Normal 6L6 power sim enabled : you are free to experiment with different settings.

Expected power amp tube setting : Normal 6L6

To install :

  • backup you existing presets, tone captures and IRs first
  • then import the preset files (the tone cap should be loaded alltogether)
  • after loading, all presets should have the tone capture block enabled

The presets files are the following :

  • 41A-DUALR TC01 01.mo
  • 41B-DUALR TC01 02.mo
  • 41C-DUALR TC01 03.mo
  • 41D-DUALR TC01 04.mo
  • 42A-DUALR TC01 05.mo
  • 42B-DUALR TC01 06.mo
  • 42C-DUALR TC02 01.mo
  • 42D-DUALR TC02 02.mo
  • 43A-DUALR TC02 03.mo
  • 43B-DUALR TC01 07.mo
  • 43C-DUALR TC02 04.mo

TC01 presets are using tone cap 01 (“odfrtone1”) and TC02 are using tone cap 02 (“odfrtone2”)

Check the Tone Cap is enabled

An OD-808 is configured in the FXA block. An alternate OD is also defined in the DS/OD block : you can switch them on/off to test variations of tone. These presets were created using a Fishman Fluence in passive voicing in E standard, and an EMG 57 on a guitar tuned to E-Flat. These are relatively high-output pickups : you may need to boost the gain/volume on the OD if you are using “colder” or passive pickups. For lower tunings, you may need to slightly revisit the settings, as they will probably be too boomy or muddy.

If you want to get a fuller tone (EMG 81 pickups) for example : experiment changing the OD and aim for an OD/preamp with more low-end (FullDrv, BB, Obsessive dist,….

If you want a more scooped tone, one quick way to do it is to adjust the tone capture block parameters :

DarkT presets for GE300 with Tone Capture – Pack 1

This time I picked-up my Dark Terror tube head and tried to add some of it’s tone to a stock GE300 amp, to try to enhance the body and thickness of the tone. I used the tone capture with a “full” amp profile : the tone capture here captures the output of the head, including the power-amp section. I suggest you keep the power-amp sim off on the GE300, as it is the case in the presets. You may end-up with a muffled tone by re-adding another power amp color, but you are free to try 🙂 (the Baby Bomb is very neutral/light for example).

Power amp sim off in presets

This tone capture was created by using amp #52 of the GE300 : the Orange Rocker Verb, distortion channel. I created the capture with low gain on the source amp (36) and a low to mid-gain setting on the Dark Terror. I would suggest to keep the amp gain setting at this level, and raise the gain of the DS/OD block if you want more distortion. Most of the presets use an OD808 in either FX A or DS/OD.

I created 11 presets, using GE300 stock cabs and mics :

  • Rec 412 (2 presets)
  • Mark 112
  • Blues 112
  • Two Stones 212
  • Citrus 412
  • Citrus 212 (2 presets)
  • PV 5050 412 (2 presets)
  • Cali 412-1

Make sure the tone cap is enabled on the presets after import (original tone capture name is “dt2”) :

Check tone cap is activated after preset import

To install :

  • backup you existing presets, tone captures and IRs first
  • then import the preset files (the tone cap should be loaded alltogether)
  • after loading, all presets should have the tone capture block enabled

The preset files are the following :

  • 44A-OD DARKT LO 01.mo
  • 44B-OD DARKT LO 02.mo
  • 44C-OD DARKT LO 03.mo
  • 44D-OD DARKT LO 04.mo
  • 45A-OD DARKT LO 05.mo
  • 45B-OD DARKT LO 06.mo
  • 45C-OD DARKT LO 07.mo
  • 45D-OD DARKT LO 08.mo
  • 46A-OD DARKT LO 09.mo
  • 46B-OD DARKT LO 10.mo
  • 46C-OD DARKT LO 11.mo

These presets are basically variations of the same base tone, the cab/mic settings making the difference. As usual, you will probably need to adjust the presets to your guitar pickups and tuning. Hope you will have fun with those.

Randy Thrasher Presets with Tone Capture – Pack1

7 presets with 5 Overdriven.fr IRs, this time using my Thrasher50 head for tone capture. The base amp is the Randall Satan (74 – Randy Devil DS). Quite solid metal tones, IMHO. Check the readme.txt from the zip file to load IRs in the expected IR slot.

The following presets are available :

Make sure the tone capture block is on. The original tone capture settings are similar to the screenshot below :

All presets are using the following blocks : OD, AMP, Tone Capture and Cab. Some presets also have the EQ block on.

These presets use G12K100, G12-65 and V30 IRs.

This collection is not on Mooer cloud, as it is using custom IRs.

Shittcow RD with tone capture

10 presets created with 8 Overdriven.fr IRs, with 2 tone capture of a Synergy® Fryette® Pittbull Ultra Lead preamp, on the blue (rhythm) channel. The base amp is the Shittcow RD preamp on the Mooer GE300 (slot 91). 2 tone captures are embedded in the presets (namely pittgr1 and pittgr2). The first tone capture is for clear and percussive high gain tone, the second one is darker and can be used for high-gain and mid-gain tone. The IRs were selected from existing collections with Demon, G12-65, G12-T75 and Governor speakers excepted the R212 IR, which is part of a future collection.

Here are the original IR slots pointed by the presets :

  • 70 : OD-R212-RBN-CN-2-P12-100-R.wav (38B)
  • 78 : OD-FB-DEM-DYN-US-8-P12-50-L.wav (37C, 37D)
  • 79 : OD-E112-G65-DYN-US-8-P12-50.wav (38A)
  • 80 : OD-E112-G65-DYN-US-8-P12-70-BRIGHT.wav (36A, 37B)
  • 81 : OD-E112-T75-DYN-US-8-P10-80.wav (36B)
  • 82 : OD-E112-GOV-DYN-US-8-P12-50.wav (36C)
  • 84 : OD-FB-DEM-DYN-US-8-P12-70-L-LCUT.wav (36D)
  • 87 : OD-E112-G12-65-DYN-US-8-P12-70-BRIGHT-KT88-2.wav * (37A)

* The IR used by preset 37A is a special IR that embeds a KT88 power-amp signature, it is recommended to turn off the power amp sim of the preamp block when using this IR.

Most of the presets have their EQ block and their COMP block preconfigured : you can activate them to get alternative settings, especially the COMP block which is placed at the end of the chain with low compression settings, to provide a tighter sound with less bass and less resonance. It is a technique that I use when tracking/recording or when practicing, for better articulation of playing and better sound perception, with less hearing fatigue.

The presets were created and tested with Fishman Willie Adler pickups (in drop D), which are active and relatively high output pickups : as usual, adjust the gain and tone to suit your gear and taste.
