    Cool, glad to help. I also like hearing what others think just out of curiosity. When you say you had little problem approximating them on the floor, is the floor somehow different than the amp?

    Yeah, the floor has more limitiations, it's like a MII or a v1 or something. I dunno exactly. But yea there are a couple less amp models and a couple less stomp models on the floor. For example, on the Floor, there was no 57 Twin to base your Tweed preset off from, so I used I think a 65 Twin instead, Also there is no Green Driver or whatever, just OD...

    Ahhh, well then with the 65 twin/greenbox it's a very different sound. So no 57 and greenbox means your floor must be a V1. Those are 2 of the things the V1 doesn't have.

    Actually you'd be amazed at how close I got the patches on my floor to sounding the same as your presets that I loaded onto my MIII. I made a couple adjustments to compensate for some differences, and they are virtually indistinguishable.

    Thats odd. I can't get anything like that from the 65 twin. It doesn't have a midrange thats anything like it. Maybe the V1 65 twin is different than in the V2.

    fender4life, if you're interested I could put it up in fuse sometime. (dunno if a higher version can load a lower version preset?) I can't imagine that they are different, v1 65 to v2 65. but then again I am not positive that it's the 65 either, that was just a guess

    No need, I'll take your word since you have a MIII to compare. Just seems odd from my experience with the MIII tweed vs BF.

    I'm interested! If you upload to FUSE, please post a link. Thanks!

    pondcaster OK. It will probably be a few days before I get a chance to, though...

    No worries, I appreciate the effort!

    I'll check back... always looking for new v1 presets to try.

    Rock on.

    You can load a v1 preset into a v2 Mustang III (and visa versa), but it won't sound the same. I recall when I had the v1 - I tried one of Shane's InTheBlues presets and wondered what the fuss was about. When I got my v2, I downloaded the same preset again and it made a world of difference. Btw, if the v1 amp doesn't have the effects or amp sim that a v2 patch was made with… the v1 amp will select the nearest substitute available. So it might need a bit of tweaking, but just be aware that you may not be hearing what the v2 author intended the patch to sound like.

    I'm not saying you can't make great presents with the v1… it's a very nice amp and I enjoyed it very much, while I had it. But the translation between the two doesn't seem to be identical. t think the v2 amp runs a different firmware even though the architecture is similar enough for both amps to cross-load presets.

    I didn't load another version of FUSE software on my laptop - so I think the same Fuse software can sync with both v1 and v2 amps (and other Fender amps too with the same interface).

    When you're browsing the Fuse community listing, make sure you keep an eye out if the preset was created in a v1 or a v2, on the righthand side of the chart. Select the appropriate patches to get the most out of these contributed selections.

    It'd be nice if Fender just provided an update to make everything v2. I bet it'd be pretty easily doable

    Theres a lot of things they could to to be nice, but they'd rather be rich.:D

    But on a serious note, personally i have no problem having to buy a new mustang when they up the ante now and then. They're so cheap and you get so much for your money that it's one of the few if not only pieces of gear i feel that way about. When the V3 comes out i'll be all over it unless the review suggest there are no worthwhile improvements.

    Very curious what you came up with on the Floor. Could you just list the basic amp & OD settings at some point?
    Thanks!

    OK, sitting here with my Floor in my lap...
    V1 Tweed:

    65 Twin Reverb, gain and vol cranked, treble 7, mid 5, bass 4 . Stomp- overdrive level 6.2, gain 9.2 low 6.1, mid 1.0 high 10

    V1 Bassman + OD:

    59 Bassman gain and vol cranked, treble 8, mid 5, bass 4.7, Stomp-overdrive level 5.4, gain 7.1, low 6.5, mid 5.5, high 7.1

    I run delay on both of these, which affects the tone, also. At some point I'm gonna get some of the presets I like best loaded to FUSE, these will be included with credit to fender4life

    Thanks, but thats not necassary. You tweaked them so at that point they are no longer mine anymore than a fender patch you tweak is fender's.

    Thanks a bunch!
    Edit- Are you using single coils or humbuckers with these? How are you setting Sag & Bias?

    So far I've only used a tele with these presets.

    Sorry, I don't recall the sag and bias (I'm currently away from my gear).
    At some point I intend to get these into Fuse, along with some others, that people may find helpful.

    I have a rockabilly preset that to me is better than anything else I've heard out there, including the factory one
