    sorry, but what does your first sentence mean?
    so you really think I should cut low mids? Then it sounds so thin and fizzy and weak...

    hehe! I think several mic positions would indeed round this off for sure. To be able to pick from several mic positions on this cab would be the icing on the cake no doubt about it!

    Thanks Poi... much appreciated. Still trying to figure this impulse thing out, but I really like your comparison track.... it's something to shoot for. :headbang:

    So I'm messing with my 5150 & Boogex using this impulse... & I can't even come close to getting the top end Poi was getting. Interesting... Anyone know of a "using impulses" primer for dummies?

    I'd love to hear these chuggy green channel settings:

    crunch on
    bright off

    pre gain 5-6
    lows 7
    mids 2
    highs 7
    post gain 2
    resonance 8.5
    presence 7.5

    try them out, it's the best tone I'm getting with my stock tubes 5150.

    Hey Poi, just want to say "thanks very much" for all your efforts... I finally got things sounding pretty good & it's certainly got that "snarl" I've been after forever. If ever we should meet, I'll buy you the lapdancer of your choice & drinks to go with it. :kickass::kickass:


    Now I just gotta save up & buy an Engl cab.... ...fuck, it never ends!

    So I will try to post some impulses at some point for people. Will deconvolver for PC deconvolve those sweep files?

    If not can I post them and have someone run them through something for me?

    EDIT: I will do some bass amp impulses as well.

    What kind of tubes are they, if you don't mind me asking? I haven't been too happy with the Sovtek 12AX7WBs that were in my 5150 head, although the Chinese tubes in my combo with a Sovtek 12AX7LPS in front have been doing pretty well...

    They were the 8th gen Chinese tubes that shipped with the amp originally. The first owner of this particular amp worked in a guitar store & got one of the very first 5150s.... & now it's all mine. I just had to clean the puke, beer, fix the broken knobs & generally sterilize the thing as it was a "working amp" in his bar band for a good ten years.

    I "upgraded" to a full matched & balanced set of 9th gen Chinese tubes about 8 months ago. Paid a premium for the matching service, too. I think with this Mesa cab, anyway, the 8th Gen ones sound better. I also down-biased my poweramp closer to the original setting & seem to be getting this amazing midrange thing going on now.... I'll post it in a few days.
    I seem to remember someone mentioning that hot-biasing a 5150 sort of takes away from it what makes it unique. With a Marshall V30 cab, it's just too shrill & needs it, IMO. With a Mesa cab, though, all I can say is, "wow!" Cooling off those power tubes really sounds good.


    Now if I can only find my original set of power tubes.... well, the last one anyway. Took 'em out back in '05 for a set of JJ's. They were Sovtek 6l6GB's... I found 3 of 4. How fucking useful is that? o_O

    No problems Oz et al.

    I'm still having nightmares about the sine wave going threw my 5150 and almost blowing my head off....arghh.. :lol::lol:

    I think that clip sounds great Ermz considering you are just using software sims!

    Yeah, there's some weird stuff going on with the mids which I couldn't remedy with EQ. I think it could have something to do with using my ME-50 as a preamp, not having a DI, and running into a Soundblaster Audigy...

    There's potential though, for sure, especially if there's a good mix to hide some of the finer points of the digital tone. All thanks to yer impulse. Considering that was the first one you made, I'd say we can call it 'severe beginner's luck' hahah.

    what mics do you have? if you have two 57's I'd love two have a fredman styled impulse. and like guitar hack did with the on/between/off in different distances would be awsome. my absolutly favorite with guitar hacks was/is sneap edge. so that would be on top of my wishlist. I don't know how this is made although. maybe someone can tell. thanks again. the impulse is really great

    Let me know what sinesweep you use and I can easily do it for you...

    There is another way to get an impulse response btw.
    You should play a riff and record both the preamp out and the mic'd cab.

    Then you have to use the preamp-out as you Test-Tone and the mic'd clip as the File-To-Process in your deconvolver...
