Dude that pic is a little scary...
I like it, it looks like Burt Reynolds
I understand that the software version of the real thing has a different name. All I was saying is that I was surprised to see so much drive/gain/overdrive/distortion/input-volume/etc being applied to the guitar signal before it even hits the amp which also has drive/gain/distortion/etc.
Thanks for the heads up on the DX+, Joey. I've often thought about upgrading my pre-gain pedal to something a little more ballsy. Do you reckon a tubescreamer would have much desirable effect with a solidstate amp, the podxt pro into a poweramp, even?
Also, I'm still curious if your use of such high pre-gain in the guitar signal has anything to do with noise gate settings.
i prefer 2 noise gates. i've talked to a lot of touring bands that NEED that much gating with their level of gain. Most i've talked to like to run a light gate before the amp, but after a TS, then another through the FX Loops of the amp.
With an amp like mine (6505+) that's pretty much needed if you're running a tube screamer to make it sound like you're amps off when you're not playing.
Yup, I run a NS-2 on the front end, and a Hush Super C in the FX Loop. Its deader than Chelsea's nuts in between chugs.
Made a mix using this patch with the DI s submitted by Goddamn Guitar in this thread:

... not quite
I dig it
Hey, kinda late to butt in on this convo. But I am 16 and am really into recording, and I would like to start using triggers instead of mics (besides overheads) for my drum tracking, what all equipment do i need for this, and how does it work?
Use search. Or look in the stickies.
would this work if i had the small desktop pod GX
and then just used the metal pack on that?
or do you NEED the equiptment listed to get this sound? i dont see why it would sound any different
Yes, that would work.
Does anyone know if its even possible to achieve a good tone for recording WITHOUT metal pack? I've tried for hours, but all I'm able to get is shit :/
yes it is
the spinal puppet is decentish with the line six 2001 4x12 cab with the dynamic on axis 0 room
fiddle with it but dont over gain it
I got a half decent tone the other day using a combo of the dual rectifier sim with the treadplate cab and the orange sim into the green 20's cab. I still think the triple rec sim is the best on the pod though.
so im using "the patch" but im not sure on how to eq it. any suggestions on which eq to use in logic for high pass low pass high cut low cut etc. or Waves plugins. thanks
high pass to 300, low pass to 200, boost 100
Any eq will do. Even those in your cracked Waves bundle. Eq settings are in the first post.
what do you mean by boost? just bring up the gain of that frequency to taste?
