mhhh, well no there´s not a one size fits all solution, but if a person knows nothing about the Montage and tries it out at the store and presses "fingered 12 string" and then nothing impressive happens because arp is off by default (and this newbie trying the Monty does not know how to turn arp on yet) I think it´s a bit of a shame. cos this person is not going to hear a fingered 12 string. and the fingered 12 string with the specially designed mega-arp sounds pretty good and very realistic. I think the many sound demo videos on youtube with guitars probably all have the mega-arps going (on hold!) for people to hear how realistic a guitar can sound on the Monty. but to hear it you have to study first, and I think it would have been better to preset it the other way around: if you don´t want the mega-arp, learn how to turn it off.
