Hey guys, this was my first test with my new interface (Mackie Onyx 400F), and I have to say, I'm amazed at how much better it sounds IMO than my old (Mackie Onyx Satellite, may it RIP ). Even though they supposedly have the same preamps, the converters are a bajillion times better in the 400F, and who knows what other analog stuff as far as op-amps for the outputs and stuff has been improved. Anyway, yeah, I recorded the DI's using my Redeye into the 400F, and then re-amped them through my rig as normal, but they just sound much better to my ears than any of my older stuff, so I'm a happy man! The main point of this, however, was to illustrate the power a Tube Screamer (my $40 TS7, to be precise ) has on the Rectifier. As far as post-processing goes, I have my usual HP/LP and narrow 3 dB cut at 6k, and a multiband comp taking off around 3-4 dB on the palm mutes. So... With TS.mp3 Without TS.mp3 And since people seem to like my DI's, here they are! And for those who recognize the riff (Hypocrisy's "Scrutinized"), yes I know I played it too slow, but those on-beat gallops are my fucking achilles heel (really anything based on fast downpicking), so 175 BPM was the best I could do! Oh well, at least I think me and my 2x GClip and Elephant setup made a better master than that fucking abomination! EDIT: And here are the guitars (with TS) by themselves, and here they are without the 3 dB 6k cut (just HP/LP) EDIT 2: THE EDIT STRIKES BACK: And for those who think the gain and/or mic position is the source of my 6k fizz woes, I recorded clips with less gain and the mic farther from the dustcap: here's the mix, here's the guitars themselves (and there's no 6k cut here, just HP/LP) EDIT 3: RETURN OF THE EDIT: Hopefully Lasse won't mind me posting it, here's a test he re-amped through his 2 ch. Dual Rec, Recto cab, and 1x 57 using DI's that he supplied, and once again the 6k fizz is present!
