    TC - G Major 2 - Distortion tones using Factory PS

    I started with a TC M300 in my rack rig and I could not get the Program mapping working with the other units in my rig so I found a G Major 2 which has much easier MIDI program mapping. So I get the thing and I absolutely love the factory pre-sets on any of my clean tones. Here's the rub...
