Welcome to this page dedicated to presets for the Mooer Radar pedal. 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 and distorted tone, but you might give them a try even if you play in other styles.

Overdriven.fr presets for Mooer Radar

These presets either use the built-in Mooer 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.

Metal presets for Radar – Pack 1

In this first release, I created 5 presets based on a Mesa Recto 212 (V30) and 5 presets based on a Zilla Cabs Fatboy with a G12K100 speaker. They were setup and tuned against my headphones (which are not boomy; ie you may get more bass on your devices) and tested against a small JBL Flip 2 speaker directly connected to the Radar pedal. I used the following chain while creating the presets : EMG81, OD9 (Tone 12H, Level 12H, Drive 0), Revv G4 pedal (picture of the settings below) and the Mooer Radar pedal.

All the following presets are using an Overdriven.fr custom impulse responses, the power-amp section and the eq section of the Radar.

In order to install the presets from this pack:

  • backup (export) your presets before proceeding, as they will get overriden
  • download the presets from this page : Mooer Radar Metal Presets Pack 1
  • go to the CAB section of the Mooer Studio for Radar
    • select the CAB slot 1
    • upload the first file of the table above (+ button)
    • select the CAB slot 2
    • upload the second file of the table above (+ button)
  • then import the 10 .mo files with Mooer Studio for Radar
  • make sure preset 1 is pointing to cab 1, preset 2 pointing to cab 2, etc….

You can also directly use the original IR file name if you have downloaded the IR collections.

The following samples (1 and 2) were made during the preset creation (they do not reflect exactly the final presets) but I put them here anyway to get an idea of the type of sounds you can get. The sample 1 below is some random riffing (Drop D) cycling through the presets, and where the Radar headphone out is connected to the little JBL Flip2, and recorded with an Audio Technica AT2020 (up-close the JBL, to capture the bass). The track is equ’ed a little bit to get closer to the feel in the room. The second sample is the direct recording of the Radar output without any processing or EQ.

Samples 3 and 4 below are using a Mooer preamp (instead of the Revv G4) : a Cali MK3 (model 008). The guitar pickup is a BKP Nail Bomb (ceramic). Samples 3 and 4 cycle through the final first 10 presets.
