ammoon American Sound Pedal Review

ammoon American Sound Pedal Review

Amp simulators have come a long way in recent years and most have a huge amount of options available within them. Sometimes, all you want is a simple solution and that’s exactly what ammoon aim to provide with their American Sound pedal.

GN Line 6 Helix Ubersonic Free Patch

GN Line 6 Helix Ubersonic Free Patch

Here’s a free patch for the Line 6 German Ubersonic model.

The German Ubersonic is based on the Bogner Ubershall so it’s a pretty heavy sounding amp model. As always, my patches are made for recording and sound best in a mix. If you want to use it live or on its own it’ll need a little tweaking.

It can be downloaded for free using the link below.
