With the latest version of this free iPad App, the possibilities have expanded even further. You can now save and import presets and organize them within libraries held on your iPad. This is great for backing up your sounds, exchanging them with your friends, and downloading presets created by others.
You do not necessarily need the app to operate the GrandMeister, all features are accessible and programmable on the amp itself and the MIDI board FSM 432 MK III. But the app is a great add on to manage presets.
For example, if you are playing in several bands, you can create and store specific preset libraries for each of them on your iPad. You can now tour the world with your iPad, get to the gig and just load your sounds into the GrandMeister 36 that awaits you on stage. And with all the great features of the GrandMeister 36, such as the added FX’s, Power Soak, Intelligent Noise Gate etc., it is the perfect solution for modern Guitarists.
To get you started with the GrandMeister App, Evert Zeevalkink’s, one of our GrandMeister 36 demonstrators, has sent us the four presets that he used for his GrandMeister 36 YouTube demo video.
Check out the video, get the presets from this LINK and download them right to your iPad. Make sure that the iPad is connected to the GrandMeister 36 as shown in the video below. (Note: You will need an additional MIDI interface for iPad)
Remember to backup your previous presets via the BACKUP SELECTED MEMORY function before you transfer the new presets to your amp.
The iPad will automatically recognize the file format as GrandMeister library and will ask you to import the file into the GrandMeister App.
Once the presets appear in your GrandMeister library, just select the presets and click the “TRANSFER APP MEMORY TO AMP” button. The presets will now be transmitted to you amp.
