Fender finally make a computer editor for new Mustang amps

Post by glowrak guy »

Previously Fender released and abandoned their 'Fuse' editing app,
then came out with a half-baked 'Tone' bluetooth app,
was OK for some, often a flop...then they closed their public forums :dog:

Now, at long last, via a firmware update, the newish Mustang Lt 25 and LT 50
usb modeling amps have a computer based version Tone, and I found
a user demo from April 2020. Closed forums don't spread much news (muttering: you idiots)

At 10:45 in the video, the demoee goes through the steps
to create a new preset, and does quite well for himself.

Tone looks pretty easy to use, with nice graphics, and a handy 'swap-out' button.
The earlier minutes cover a range of presets and uses etc. The amp sounds/effects
are typical for Mustang, but without over-the-top nonsense, just 30 good examples
from which to modify/redo, and 30 more empty slots for new creations.
The LT 25 is budget pricedat $150 or less.

I'm hoping that Fender will update firmware for the earlier GT series to use the
computer Tone app. It installed and launched fine in Ubuntu Studio 20.04
with wine-staging stable 5.x but is waiting for an LT amp to be connected... :roll:
Cheers

I should add that a .deb called 'Plug' support the range of Mustang V1 amps (not VII or GT)
so there are Version 1 Mustang I, II, III, IV, V, and Floor models, then came the same range, but improved,
and labeled as version II.
An app called Remuda is still developed for editing most older Mustangs on phones,
demo available, found at your local Play Store'.

...bargains can be found on 'old' Mustangs, which make a very nice and versatile
usb/line guitar input devices.
Cheers
