There are many ways to match the tone of your favorite guitar players with your own gear.

Here is Hans Van Even's method, using Blue Cat's Destructor to mimic Eddie Van Halen's unique tone. Watch out! Sick guitar shredding inside!

Update: you can now download the free EVH Brown Sound preset here. It also includes the Cubase setup used in the tutorial. Reverb is mandatory to get the perfect match!

Very interesting. So basically he manually tweaked the controls until he matched it? That would be hard for me to do. What are some of the similarities and differences between Destructor and say "Bias"....or say the Kemper?

Its obvious that Destructor has nearly unlimited control to tweak the sound if you know what you'er doing... I like how the profiling amps can listen to a sample and its done, the tone is matched. Can Destructor do anything like that?

Actually with the analyzer it is made easier, since you can see which frequencies to boost or cut. Also, there are many presets to start with, so you do not need to start from scratch.

Destructor does not provide automatic tone matching - it is not its main purpose.
