Response: Not sure - I have a Q-Tron, not a +, so mine doesn't have this. I would guess slow
Peak: About 7:00 ish - variable though
Gain: 7:00 - 8:00 ish - also variable per sound
Boost: off - but you could use it on for a lead gain or something
This is approximately the most common setting that I use to get a nice warm, round tone. Depending on the sound that I want, I adjust the peak and the gain just a little bit.
You are right that the settings are also dependent on the guitar - more specifically the pickup output - some are hotter than others. These settings are for the guitar volume set all the way up - if you turn down your volume you'll need to adjust gain for that. I have an effects loop on my guitars so the effect is always seeing full volume no matter what. I have mine Q-Tron dialed in for my pickups in single coil - but if I switch them to series or parallel then the output is much hotter and I need to dial down the gain.
Here's something else that I do - especially when I'm playing on the higher strings and I want a little more responsiveness out of the effect - I'll pop the pickup into parallel. Works like a charm.
The tricky thing is if you change your guitar volume - the effect will need to be set to compensate for that - you really need to leave the guitar volume alone once you get the sound that you want.
