    OD808-6505 run-of-the-mill settings-Mesa OS

    50% condenser - 50% dynamic

    No post fx/EQ whatsoever.

    Here

    I don't know how different it is from the ATM250DE, but the AE2500 is a bit older and more expensive apparently.
    I only purchased it because it was stupidly cheap (270 euros) not even expecting it to work properly.

    Sorry I can't find the original thread where I found these DI. Pretty sure it's somewhere in the Practice Room. Credits to the author.

    Sounds great Burny ;)
    It gets rid of the 5150 nasty top end without even touching an eq!
    A much rounded and warmer sound compared to a 57

    Thanks guys. Pretty happy with it. Only tried briefly on a kick drum but it sounds promising too. Very natural yet plenty of attack and low end.

    Now I'm starting to GAS for the atm250DE too! I want both...
    Call me micoholic. :D

    On a couple of albums I have had good results combining the AE2500 with a 57 (on distorted guitars that is)...
    You might want to try that out.

    I've got the cheaper one (ATM250DE) pretty cool on guitar and snare!
